Glitter Girl Inspiration
The very first episode was about using memorabilia, so I pulled out a photo and a group of travel memorabilia from our trip to New Mexico in 2012. I used the airline ticket holder as an envelope to hold some of the memorabilia and a gift card envelope to hold a few smaller pieces.
The second Glitter Girl episode was all about mists, so I pulled out a bottle of Smooch Spritz to add some interest and dimension to my background cardstock on this fun layout.
BTW - did you notice the border strip and chevron pieces on these two layouts? I created those with my new Stampin' Up Chevron border punch - so much fun!
Since I was on a roll, I checked out the third Glitter Girl episode and was inspired to create this layout with photos from Pun'kin's 2010 summer visit.
Episode four was all about adding layers, so this next layout includes lots of bits & pieces in the embellishment clusters (die cut journal boxes, washi tape, flowers, brads, punched hearts, bling, enamel stickers) and was so much fun to create.
Isn't this such a fun bunch of inspiration from only four episodes of Glitter Girl - only 89 more episodes to go! :>)
