Hi there x welcome to my April blog post which is perfect for Magpies who like all things shiny.
I was really pleased to see that the use of gold was still a hot trend in the newly released ranges in the shop. So I thought I would share some of my favourites with you this month and the pages I’ve made with them.
First up, Lovely Family.
I just love the colour palette of this MME range, On Trend the peach, green & gold have a lovely spring feel. I used the 6×6 pad plus the chipboard sheet to create this page using a photo of my children a few years ago. The flowers were cut on the silhouette & water coloured to compliment the papers.
I finished the page off with a Pebbles – Jen Hadfield gold circle sticker which was a perfect fit for the Amy Tan Stitched – Love Spun embossing folder to make this cute little embellishment & a few enamel dots.
I Adore You.
This more formal page I created using the Pebbles Jen Hadfield Cottage Living range has a few touches of gold. Firstly the puffy phrase stickers that make up the title from this range. The background paper used is Floral Tapestry paper which I added a little shimmer to with some Heidi Swapp colour shine in coral & peach.
Then I used the 12 x 12 plastic stencil and Wendy Vecchi gold embossing paste to create some elements for the background, cutting more from the 6×6 pad before arranging on the cardstock. If you apply the embossing paste unevenly it creates some lovely textures when it dries.
I Am So Very Blessed.
There is plenty of gold on this, my last page. The background paper is Courageous gold foil paper from the Simple Stories I Am range. The frame ,foiled feather & title are also from this range. Have you checked out the Bella Boulavard Color Chaos Clear Cuts transparencies ? they come in lots of different colours & here I’ve used the gold confetti one to overlay part of the paper. The mini instagram frame was cut using the WRMK die set.
The glittery embellishments used are taken from the Me & My Big Ideas chipboard sticker packs which are fabulous value for money with 3 sheets included in each pack.
I hope this inspires you to Go for Gold too x
Till next time…
