Happy Wishes

I cut the pretty white striped vellum using the new
The gold centers were cut from the gold stripe paper.
I wanted to keep it light, and airy.
There is nothing basic about this "Basic" Uptown Collection.
So much fun to mix and layer the black and whites with the gold.

Welcome to another Scrappy Saturday!
This layout is all about my gorgeous Rose Blossom friends that I meet up with at the

We all get dressed up and are treated to a most wonderful evening that wraps up the convention.
So much fun.
Now for the supply deets.
I combined the new
Adventure Fundamentals (the Raspberry color)
with the
Uptown Fundamentals (classic black and white/grey and white on the flip side).
The gold vellum pieces come in the Good Life Complements.

Go for the Gold 2

I love our new thin-cuts.
I used the "hello"
and hearts to make these cards.
I simply cut the hello out of the Gold Glitter Paper cut to 
card size.  I used the positive space on one card and negative on another.
To create the hearts I adhered 1/4 inch strips of cardstock to white and then cut them with thin cuts using my Cuttlebug.
All the colors you see are new, except for the Lagoon blue color.
Aren't those colors bright and beautiful?
Here's the other card...
I have to give a shout out to the consultant
, who shared this technique at convention, if only I could remember her name, sorry.
I loved the idea and could not wait to try it.
