Pearl – Layout 2

Just like today’s steal, the Happy Travels Collection by Glitz Design, I’ve been enjoying some time off. I’ve spent the past week relaxing by the pools in Vegas with my hunny then working my tush off teaching a class in Chicago at the Craft and Hobby Association show.

Design team member Katrina Hunt stepped up and offered to help me out with this week’s Mid Week Mojo so there could be a little less crazy on my plate.  I think you’ll be happy that she did. Amazing talent. Amazing product. Amazing sketch.

It’s Katrina here with Mid Week Mojo!  Go easy on me — I’m not used to making sketches, but I thought this one was fun and has some great possibilities.  And if you’re like me, you need a pick-me-up during the week.  I’m a girl who works for the weekend (or days off)!

I haven’t ever worked with Glitz Design before, so I was excited when the Happy Travels collection was the steal I was getting to work with.  The colors are more subdued that I usually go for, but I love the way they make the photos pop on my layout!

The airplane paper and clouds were the jumping off point for my overall layout.  And I loved the little glittered heart that was popped up on one of the cardstock stickers.  I just took it off and used it on my cloud!

The little epoxy sticker and gemstone were the perfect addition to my twine that I had wrapped around my picture.  There are lots of little items that you can add for details and I love that!

In place of the flags, I decided to use the numbers and just highlight that area in a different way than the flags.

And because  you can always change a sketch to use it however you want, I decided to make a card based on it.  Some of the collection is loved themed and some is travel, so I decided to make a love themed card. I thought the hearts coming out of the mason jar were fun.

Play along with us this week and make sure and link to your project so we can see it!
