Monthly Glitz

Here is a little more inspiration for you from our Creative Team Member, Claire and a few of the girls.  I am sure you are all wondering how these layouts all come out of the same pack, but the possibilities are truly endless.  There really is so much you can do with this one. 
Beautiful by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
I wanted to keep it simple as the background paper is so pretty, I didn't think that muchI've matted the photos on to the yellow paper and used one of the stickers as my title.
The flower has been coloured by painting yellow and red Glimmer mist on to the petals and I've also added some bling. The last thing I did was to highlight the edges of some of the hexagons with Kindy Glitz.
I fussy cut one of the stickers and chopped off some of the words to fit my layout. I wanted the lady's leg to 'hang' down one of the photos!

I thinks it's come together very well Claire. Outlining the hexagons has made them stand out a little more, and great job with the BlondeTitle!
Turning Fifty by Judy Laracy
Turning Fifty, and Life's a bowl of Cherries!  Judy has brought out all the reds in this pack with her fussy cut cherries, handmade tissue flowers and rosette.  The bunting title is very effective, and the lower bunting images in the patterned paper have been given a bit more depth with Dimensional Magic, although it's a little difficult to see.
The hand cut cherries have certainly required a bit of patience, great layout Judy.
I Choose Gumballs by Zan Boyle
The whole story here behind the title is actually Behind the Title!!  Zan has told her story in a hidden journaling pocket behind the title, which makes total sense if you get a chance to read it!
There is a great sequence of photos here, demonstrating the shading from black and white to colour.  Very clever, and very effective given the vibrant colours in this pack.  The handmade rolled flowers and bling circles give the page a touch of hands on playing.  Well done.
Hello Gorgeous Card by Zan Boyle
Doesn't this remind you of the ol' Electric IBM Golfball we all longed for?  I just loved mine, and that's the first thing I think of when I see this die cut.  Nicely put together Zan.

Thanks for sharing your great creations girls.  We are looking forward to seeing what else is created before the Monthly Glitz Pack challenges finish come Pumpkin TIme at the end of October.
