Memorandum Monday - Glitter Girl Is Back

Have you heard that Glitter Girl is back? Each Wednesday she's sharing a new scrapbooking adventure on Shimelle's YouTube channel. This past weekend, for the first time this year, I found time to watch a couple of the videos and used the INSPIRATION to create two layouts.

Glitter Girl Adventure 123 encouraged scrapbookers to choose a favorite layout to scraplift when trying to get back into this fun hobby after a break. I chose to scraplift Glitter Girl's layout, although I reversed the design since this will be the first page in our 2016 album.


I'm determined to use my stash of scrapbook supplies this year and only purchase items for which I have a specific plan. For this layout, I used one full 12x12 sheet, then lots of paper scraps from my stash. I added a Project Life card for journaling, two different letter stickers for a title, and some washi tape and bling embellishments as finishing touches.


I used the basic layout design from Glitter Girl Adventure 124 as the starting point for my next layout, using the idea of stacked papers under a single photo.


Then I created two embellishment clusters with more bits and pieces from my stash.


Have you watched any of the new Glitter Girl Adventures?

Joining in today with Sian's Memorandum Monday meme sharing something NEW (Something you did over the weekend FOR THE FIRST TIME or something you learned and DIDN'T KNOW BEFORE).

Nice! I did see the return of Glitter Girl, and am happy to have her back. I can see how she inspired your layouts, yet they also look like your style. Love the layering!

Sue has got it right: your pages look like you, with a sprinkle of glittery inspiration. This might be the week I finally get hooked on videos and podcasts as I take it easy. I'll have to check on the new Glitter Girl.

Have a great week Melissa

I hadn't heard the news about glitter girl, so thank-you. Lovely to see a page about 2016! You'll be whizzing through your stash in no time with all that luscious layering ...

I had heard that there were new glitter girl videos but I'd forgotten so thanks for the reminder. I will make time to watch them.

There was much excitement in one of my Facebook groups about the Return of Glitter Girl. Looks like she provided just the inspiration you needed to dive back in.

The return is news to me, but probably because I've eliminated a lot of blogs over the last year from my Feedly account. Since I only do PL now, the videos probably don't apply---although I do love the Glitter Girl. Love your first layout; what a great start to the 2016 album.

Your pages are fabulous - that first one especially - it looks like the first page of a great album. I've managed to catch 2 of the new GG videos and have joined the Scrapbook Like A Superhero Facebook group as well.

I'd not heard but haven't been reading much on FB or forums. I like the plan to use up stash - I have the same one for this year. Nice layering and what a great idea to have a photo of the two of you as you enter 2016.

I've been watching the videos and plan to make my first layout of the year today, my Christmas Journal is finally complete. I'm doing the same as you with my stash, your layouts are lovely and show you don't need the latest collections.
