and Jilted Jade Shimmerz

The DT is putting up all kinds of projects today on the blog using these fun new colors. Oh yeah! and PLUS, there is a GIVEAWAY going on to celebrate the new colors!!! YES!!! LOVE giveaways!!! So be sure and go enter on the Shimmerz Blog while you are checking out all the projects!!! :D :D :D

I am just loving these fresh, juicy new colors!!! Check out the projects I've been using them on!

First, I have a layout about my daughter potty training (YAY!!! We're almost done!). I used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz and the Island Salsa Blingz to change the color of my title letters. FUN!!! I also used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz to change the color of just the center pearl on the flower centers accenting my journaling block. Finally, I applied a color wash of Jilted Jade Shimmerz to a sheet of bookpaper and then cut out a circle to make a layered flower. :D :D :D

Next I created a Birthday Card. Yes, I know. My card isn't as fabulous as what you normally see on the Shimmerz blog! LOL! But I gave it a go, so be kind! ;)

I used the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz on the bookpaper circle. I used the Jilted Jade Shimmerz, Tickle-Me-Turquoise Shimmerz, Island Salsa Blingz, and Gold Glimmer Blingz to paint the lamps. And then I painted the background cardstock with the Jilted Jade Shimmerz for a shimmery card base. I hope this card really "brightens" up someone's day! :)

Finally, I have one more layout (can you tell I was addicted to using these colors?!! :D :D :D ). On this one I used the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz to accent a few spots on the background sheet as well as the diecut flowers. I used my Basic Grey Rubon Tool (with the rollerball tip) over my flowers on top of a foam pad to make the flower petals curl up.

  1. LOL! The card is great!! But I know what you mean, when I do a card I feel like it's flat. It would certainly brighten up my day.

    I played with my new Shimmers last night, actually went thru my old pages to see what I could paint them on!

  2. Everything is beautiful! I love your work!

  3. Beautiful as always Jana! I really *need* some of those spritzes! Wow! And congrats on Camryn's milestone!!! You're now completely diaper free! woohoo!

  4. Oh my these are beautiful pages I love them TFS x

  5. I can stare at your pages all day. You have such a great style with layering papers and giving embellishing a whole new meaning.

  7. LOVE the "waiting game" layout and all of the yummy details...
