Gossamer Blue

Embossed Veneer


This month’s Gossamer Blue kits come with a couple of scripted wood veneer words that are just gorgeous. I knew I wanted to make some layouts with them as soon as I saw them. You know what’s even more beautiful and fun than wood veneer? Gold embossed wood veneers. So I got my handy heat tool out and gold embossed them! The results- golden. Literally.

All golden and shiny, these wood veneers were perfect for matching the bright and colorful embellishments in the kits this month. They go together so pretty and made the prettiest summer layout.

 This layout was simple and easy to make. I drew some circles overlapping in pen and used that as a base to where I would add embellishments.

Then I added my embellishments- chipboard stickers, enamel dots, rubber embellishments and gold glitter foam embellishments.

The circles and embellishments frame my photos and make them the center of attention. I added a title up top with some more stickers, enamel dots, and a colorful transparent acrylic word. To complete the layout, my gold embossed wood veneer takes center stage, right below the photos.

And another gorgeous layout is done in 5 minutes- easy, pretty and fast. Do you love easy and beautiful layouts?

Scrapbook Page Using Cut File


Hello everyone, today I will be sharing a scrapbook page which I created with a Gossamer Blue cut file.


To begin, I cut out the file with my Silhouette and I cut out different pieces of patterned paper to fit behind each of the triangles. I love cut files like this because they do a lot of the work for you and they become the focus of the page.


I decided to go pretty simple for paper and embellishments since the triangles were pretty busy. I backed my photo onto some white cardstock and then adhered a yellow diagonal paper behind it.


Here you can see a couple of the embellishments I picked out. The colors of these embellishments went really well with the rest of the papers.


The dimensional “love this” tab is definitely my favorite part of this page! I added an enamel button behind it to add some interest and I love how the colors from the button tie into the tab. 


 For the title of the page, I used a couple of different alphabet stickers as well as a journaling card cut into a tag. I love how colorful it is and even though it’s at the bottom on the page, it still stands out. Of course with a photo of a s’more, I had to use the word “s’more” in the title!



Here you can see the final page and I love how it turned out. I added another enamel button as well as a couple of acrylic “+” signs. I love how much color is in this scrapbook page and how well the photo pops! The memories from this photo are great and now I have a great scrapbook page to document them.

Summer Layout


Kellie here with you for the last time, my term with Gossamer Blue has come to an end and I’ve absolutely loved and enjoyed every moment with this amazing team and company.


The June kits are all amazing but my favourite would have to be the main scrapbooking kit.  It’s not often I can pick a favourite, but the reasoning was mainly because of the pattern paper by Simple Stories.  I think you might know from previous posts her on the Gossamer Bue blog by myself, that I have a thing for circles and especially when it’s a pattern on a paper line.

I grabbed a favourite photo of mine from the summer just gone as we are now in the middle of autumn here in Australia.  Black and white is sometimes the best way to go when you work with a lot of colour.  For this layout I most certainly did work with colour.


I grabbed all the embellishments from the kit and went about filling the circles on the pattern paper with enamel dots, acrylic, alphas, stickers and more from the kit.  In the end I had to stop myself from over embellishing, haha.  But I loved the result.  Best of all I still have so much left over to make at least another 6 layouts!
