We've Gone Green

 To finish off our month of all things green, today I will show you how to bring a little bit of nature to your projects. Nothing says green like, well.... green, lol! Using sand, fabric adhesive, and your favorite green Shimmerz products, we will be creating leaves and altering felt, to earthen up some of your artwork.

Here's a sneaky peek at what we will be doing...

Using these colors:

Be prepared to get messy! Go grab your sand... and let's get started!

Guest Designer Alyssa McGrew!

This month I am honored to introduce you to Alyssa McGrew, 
we are thrilled to have her guest designing for Shimmerz this month!

Alyssa says... 

"I am a wacky and super-organized 29 (forever) year old wife and mother who also runs two business from my home. Life can be hectic at times (ok, most of the time!) and scrapping, creating art pieces, and altering things is my creative escape from it all.  I started scrapping nearly 6 years ago, and haven't gone more then a few days without working on a project since.  Mists and paints are two of my favorite products, and I use them all the time, so having the chance to guest design for Shimmerz is really a treat." 

Here's a peek at what she made for us...

We are thrilled to announce...

That we are welcoming IRENE TAN to our Education Team! 

Here is a little bit about Irene (in her own words):

"My name is Irene Tan  or more known as “Scrapperlicious”. I'm the mother of two and I have the most wonderful family that always supports me in pursuing my passion. Scrapbooking to me is really about family and life. There's nothing more fun and inspiring than to scrap photographs captured during everyday life with our loved ones. My scrapping motto has always been "Scrap with your heart and don’t forget to have fun too!"
I officially started scrapbooking in March 2007 and a couple of months later, in June, I discovered an absolute love of stamping and inking. My scrapping is 'Ephemera' style but, I also love to work with some fun colours at times. One thing you can be sure of is I'm all about distressing, misting and inking! Currently, I’m a also designer for Bo Bunny, Clear Scraps, Dusty Attic, Stamp Enjoy, Vilda Stamps, Swirlydoos etc."

Be on the lookout in April for Irene's work, she is a brilliant scrapper, and an amazing artist!You can see more of her work currently at

STAMPED Denim with Shimmerz Pearlz Paint and Vibez

This month, we have a word, and that word is GREEN.

For this video, I used a scrap of DENIM jeans that were headed for the garbage.  They were too grungy to give away, so I salvaged a piece and made it into a focal point on my layout.

TIP: You can take any Shimmerz Paint, a stamp, and try it on FABRIC!

Hope you enjoy!

Shimmerz Products Used in this Video:
Jeni B Bleu Vibez
Hermit the Frog Vibez
