Yours Truly

Hi everyone! Last week it was announced that I'm joining the new Glitz Designs Digital Design Team. I have been grinning ear-to-ear about it...I love Glitz, I love digital. It's just awesome.

So, what does being on the team mean? I'll be sharing the digital sets over at Jessica Sprague. It also means trying to keep up with the super talented design team members (I've been seeing their layouts--whoa! I've got to say, it's a little intimidating!)

This week on the Glitz blog, we're sharing projects using the Yours Truly collection. I made a couple of cards. I went ultra-CAS for the first one:

I used a digital journaling card from the Yours Truly Embellishments #2 and simply enlarged it. I wanted to do a little something extra, so I took scraps from Embellishments #1 (the yellow zigzag is part of a Polaroid frame) and the Paper Pack to frame the sentiment. Super easy! It was so quick and easy, I made three more for a card set. :)

Here's a close-up:

For my second card, I used the same three kits to make a more layered card:

For this card, I resized, printed, and layered papers and the Polaroid frame. *sigh* I love these papers. I wish I could wallpaper my house in that navy blue. ;)

For the ephemera, I recolored the text to make it more of a focal point. Here is a close-up:

Did I mention that the Yours Truly Embellishments #1 and Paper Pack are on sale for a $1 and $2. Seriously? What a deal! The sale is for today (Wednesday) only. You can follow the links above to find them.

You can check out my cards and the rest of the DT over on the Glitz blog. It would be great if you would leave some love over there. :)

Last week, I had a two-part giveaway. The winner of the first giveaway is:
