Today I am sharing the scrapbook page I used featuring the GORGEOUS Metallic Sequins! In the new catalog, they are listed on page 197. They are easy to miss - but don't make that mistake! This was definitely an OOOH product. The metallics are so beautiful and rich. The shine is amazing. They just ooze class and they are so fancy! I had to make a page featuring my cute daughter and the copper sequined dress she wore to prom last year. Since I had a package to play with at my leisure, I chose to slather them on! Not the way I would normally use and abuse embellishments. I am normally a frugal embellisher. (that's a real thing.) I had planned to put just a wide row of sequins under the photo, but once I measured everything out and realized what I had left for space, I just globbed on the Multi Purpose glue and piled them on! I like the simplicity of the layout. The Copper Foil letters and numbers coordinate perfectly and it just works for me.
The first is a sunburst. I used one of the paint-chip style designs in Daffodil Delight (there is another with white between the graduating shades of color) as the bag base. I cut the sun from So Saffron and layered on a Daffodil Delight swirl from the Swirly Scribbles die set. The twine is Pool Party solid baker's twine, also from the new-stuff goody box. Metallic Embellishments and For You from Jar of Love finish out the card.
The next sample uses Old Olive in one of the crackle finish papers. The color felt right for a pretty pink rose! I cut it from the Rose Garden framelit in Powder Pink and Blushing Bride. I used the outline in Powder Pink and filled with Blushing Bride. Piecing this together can be a chore. I cut a piece of Powder Pink slightly larger than the rose, and covered it with Fast Fuse. I placed the outline on the base. I used Press n Seal wrap to hold the Blushing Bride pieces in place and pressed them into the outline. Then, I trimmed around the rose and made sure there was no adhesive oozing out of the sides. I did a similar trick with the leaves but only used one color, Pear Pizzazz. Can't say I want to do that again, those tight curves are tricky with the scissors! For You is cut from Shimmer White card stock using the word die from the Mini Treat Bag set. I am definitely getting my money out of those dies. The ribbon is NEW also, 1/8" Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White.
I have a few other groups of samples to share, so please stay tuned! If you have questions on any of the projects I have shown, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for looking!
