Shimmerz Vlog Hop

It's time y'all!!!! After weeks of bubbling with excitement over becoming one of Shimmerz Education Team members, I finally get to Shimmy my Shimmerz and shout it from the rooftop!

Welcome to the Education Team's video blog hop...If you have arrived here from Lori's blog, then you are well on your way. If you haven't and would like to participate in the vlog hop for a chance to win 1 of 5 complete sets of the newly released product (3 miniz and 4 shimmers) then you will want to go back and start at Shimmerz blog, become a follower and then make your way to each Education Team member's blogs, leaving comments and listening for each member's favorite of the new Fall vintage colors. Once you know the faves of each member, email the list to shimmerzpaints@live.com. Have fun Blog hopping!!! (the next blog to visit is at the end of this post)

Check out the projects I created with the new (and existing) colors...

This layout, created using Basic Grey papers is all about my Xan's entrance into the world as blogged in this April 12, 2008 post.

I painted the bodies of the dragonflies with Vintage Wine Shimmerz and the wings with Pixie Dust Blingz.
I used my finger to rub some Antique Lace Shimmerz on the puffy alpha to tone down the brightness of the color.

The felt lace seen here was originally cream, but I changed to color by spraying it with Purple Passion Spritz. The satin ribbon was sprayed with Baby's Breath Spritz and the Organza ribbon with Treasured Hymn spritz.

I also painted the tiny Prima buds with Pixie Dust Blingz.


Looking back on photos like this remind me just how much bearing children has changed my body...miss that body! Anywhoo...this layout was created using Graphic 45 papers.

I spritzed the background with Licorice Spritz, as well as a few of the flowers. I also painted some of the flowers with Wed Wagon shimmerz.

Remember the technique from the video? Well I cut the embossed cardstock into a snowflake and used it to create this card featuring papers by Delish.

**Edited to add: the diecut/embossing machine is the new Epic Six by Quickutz, I just used a Cuttlebug embossing folder in it**

I used Licorice Spritz on the snowflake, Concrete Spritz on the grey grosgrain ribbon, and Baby's Breath Spritz on the tag.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of you busy life to view my video and projects. I hope you have learned something new...now go on and get your shimmerz on!!

Every person who leaves a comment here by Friday 11:59 pm EDT will also be entered into a random drawing to win a jar of shimmerz from me! (colors may vary).




Next up is Leslie's blog! Just wait until you see the fabulous ideas she came up with!
