{crafty} Wild & Free Blog Hop

It has been one heck of a week filled with back to school night, the first field trip of the school year, custom shop orders and countless errands. Thank goodness it's Friday! Blog hopping with the rest of the Glitz Design digital team showcasing the Wild & Free collection is a great way to end the week! 

This is such a fun and whimsical collection! I used the Giant Roller Doodle X's digital stamp to create a background then clipped the Dream Catcher B-side paper to it to create the gradient color. I added a little more background stamping and misting, minimal paper layers and a small embellishment cluster to keep it light and airy.

Glitz Design will be giving away a Wild & Free digital collection pack to one lucky winner who comments in the hop! Each blog you comment on gains you an entry so be sure to hop along through the rest of the team!

{crafty} OBW Cashmere Dame

Did you know Wednesday's are One  Buck Wednesday over at Today you can snag Glitz Design Cashmere paper pack for $1 and the Elements 1 pack is half off!

When we were assigned to create something with this collection I was a little nervous. I don't do well with themed kits and looking at the collection it is overall very feminine and frilly. Me and flowers don't typically get along! The first thing I noticed in this kit however was the "today will be awesome" die cut and I thought it would be perfect for Little Man's first day of school. I also knew I wanted to use several of the speech bubbles as a main repeating element on my page. I love the retro almost superhero comic look I ended up with using the starburst, which I removed the rhinestones form, and bubbles.

Be sure to check out the Glitz blog today for more inspiration using this kit!

I also completely neglected to post last week's layout for OBW! This was my page using Yours Truly, which was another fun kit to work with! I love a good woodgrain background and this whitewashed paper is one of my faves!

Thanks for looking!
