Glitz Design, Vintage Blue









{Reported By Liz Hicks}

With Fall making it's way through the calender year, I feel the need to create using beautiful fall colors. Nothing says Autumn like the colors of Glitz Design's new Vintage Blue collection. I am totally drawn to the rich colors and bold patterns of this release. Makes me want to pull out my fall sweaters and boots!

The collection offers a wonderful variety of prints as well as solids that help balance the collection out. The patterns that are in this collection vary from Toile' to Damask and some wall paper prints as well. The bold Navy and rich Goldenrod in this collection balance each other out very nice.

The collection offers a variety of textures and paper thicknesses which if you like to layer, works wonderful. The embellishments also are available in different textures that help to create continued interest through out your projects.

I found the product to work well within the collection and the variety of different paper, embellishment and album thicknesses makes working with the product very easy. The product is created in a way that the entire collection works really nicely to give users a wide variety of options.

I decided to put the product to use in this fun little mini album. Together with all of the elements of this collection, the album has a really nice vintage feel that continues through the entire album.


I love the way the variety of products adds depth to the album.






This page is using the collections Peek-a-Boo embellishments to create this page. I used two of the acetate pages and sandwiched adhesive and glitter to create this page.

For some reason, dark blue is not often found in patterned paper lines. This is just gorgeous!

Out of the CHA releases for Glitz, this one was my favorite, because it just seems so versatile, bold, and beautiful without being overwhelming! I think it is so pretty!! I love what you created!! I can definitely see myself using a collection like this! I love all of the "extras" that Glitz has for their collections, particularly the little alphas! I love tiny alphas!!
