Prism Congrats

How amazing is the new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate? I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pack of it – not only because it contains purple either! The pack contains two different colours, Highland Heather & Rococo Rose, both equally beautiful. My box is made from Highland Heather and during my Facebook Live, I made one using Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Snail Mail suite.

The box is a prism slider, where the acetate or DSP acts as a ‘wrap’ around the inner card box. It’s a good size and will hold a varying amount of sweet treats or jewellery – perhaps even stationary. Because of the acetate and how stunning it looks, I didn’t need to add much more to get a gorgeous finish to the project.

A quick bow using the Gorgeous Grape sheer ribbon, a couple of flowers from the Hydrangea dies and a sentiment from the ‘You are Amazing’ stamp set. Quick and easy project which showcases the suite perfectly.

Which way did you prefer – acetate or Designer Series Paper?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Golden Perfection

One of my favourite combos is Black and Gold and I absolutely love when I can bring all the co-ordinating items onto a single project like this one – ribbon, embellishments, embossing powder – all matching to really bring the box to light. The acetate acts as a slider on the box for added wow, which I love as it gives it a special something elevating it over any other box you may make.

I don’t get my embossing powders out as often as I should, but powder is the only way to get that gorgeous look to the sentiment. Gold was the theme for the sample I made, but in my video I switched to Silver to show the variety the acetate brings – I’m not sure which one I prefer more!

And don’t you just love the sentiment? The mixture of two fonts is gorgeous, and to make things even better, the stamp set is one of the FREE choices as part of Sale-a-Bration until 28th February 2021. The finished size is really good too and will fit plenty of treats inside.

Have you purchased any of the Golden Garden Acetate yet? If not, why not?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
