I'm still enjoying my April like for ever kit, whilst I await the May kits arrival...
These gold foiled papers are not getting old, I still love them! I've also added in a white and gold note card (well, a couple of triangles of it!) as it matched so perfectly. The cut file was screaming out for a shaker pocket so I obliged! I've used a ziplock bag and my sewing machine to make a diamond shape about 1cm larger than the aperture.
These gold mirrored words are lovely. I still have one left 'charm' which I hope to use on a layout about goldfinch! (The term for a flock of goldfinch is a charm.) My only wish with the pre-made words is that they manufactured words like 'Bobby', 'rascal', 'chocolate' and 'messy' - they would be much easier for me to use!!
Quite bizarrely I found that enamel dots from my stash worked better than the enamel dots that came with the My Mind's Eye collection! Fortunately I have enough enamel dots to solve most situations - although I am sadly lacking in purple, and would love some more navy blue.
The sequins are an old set from my guest designer stint for SpiegelMom Scraps in May 2015. I've now finished the entire bag, and very satisfying it was too!
Thanks for stopping by today.
