Product Focus #20: Gold Accent Scrapbooking Supplies


Welcome to this week's Product Focus." In these weekly blog posts, I'll share scrapbooking supplies or a product trend I'm particularly drawn to, and then I'll share some ways you can use the products in a project with samples from both my designer friends and I. I'll discuss tips and tricks for using the product, share some of my favorite products from that product line, and then I'll open it up for any questions you might have. I'd also love to hear your reviews or uses for the product type I focus on each week. This is a chance for you to pull out products you already own and play with them or for you to discover new products you might not yet have tried.



Gold is the go-to accent color in home decor, jewelry, and fashion right now. I'm love the way it's popping up in paper crafting projects. Any type of shimmer on a project really draws attention to the layout or card.This week I've asked some of my favorite designers to share their designs which incorporate gold accents. You can see their work below in the image gallery section of this post.



Here are a few of my favorite gold or gold accent products (click the photos for links to the products or visit this blog post HERE to view the product suggestions). Be sure to search by the word "GOLD" at 2Peas to find products perfect for any project: 




Below you will find a gallery of projects from my designer friends and I that use gold accents. Hopefully these projects will give you some new ideas for using a gold accent or two on your upcoming projects. 


Idea #1: Use gold alpha stickers for a splash of shine on your layout.

Idea #2: Spray an object with gold mist (see the butterflies below).

How you do like adding gold accents to your projects. Do you stamp with gold ink? Spray with gold mist? Add gold washi tape to your project? If you have a question about this post, please leave it within the comments section below. I may just answer some of them in an upcoming "Product Focus" post.  Looking for additional ways to use gold accents? Be sure to watch the following "Memories Made" process video, which features gold accents. You can find it HERE on my blog or HERE on my Youtube channel:
