Black and White Plus Gold

Hello, Lisa here today with a layout to share.  I am always creating layouts with lots of colors, and most often than not, lots of bright colors.  So today I challenged myself to create a layout using only three colors: black, white, and gold.  The first thing I thought of was the MME Record It! Charmed Collection, and how perfect this collection would be for my personal challenge.

MME Record It! Charmed 6 x 6 paper pad
Charmed Enamel Dots
Avery Elle Simply Tags Christmas Stamp Set
Ranger Perfect Pearls Gold
Studio Calico Printshop Fabric Bow
Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Black Thickers

Some techniques I used:
1. To create my gold "dots" I stamped the small circles with versamark onto the cardstock and painted the perfect pearls gold over top of them.

2. When creating a 12 x 12 layout and you only have a 6 x 6 paper pad to work with you can always two sheets of the same design side by side and cover where they meet.
3. Create movement on your layout by placing embellishments diagonally.

Make sure you check out the amazing deals in the store right now including the 40% and 20% off sections, as well as all of the new goodies that are starting to pour in!
Happy Crafting!
