Welcome to Trending Thursday, where we pick something we are seeing trending within the scrapbooking industry and ask our designers to focus on that trend as they create their projects to share with you. This week we are focusing on metallic!
"Beauty Of Autumn", by Nicole Nowosad.
When I thought of gold and which Bella Blvd collection to use, I was immediately drawn to the new Hello Autumn line! The color of gold pairs so great with the richness of the colors in this collection. I used the chipboard alphas from the Hello Autumn line and heat embossed them with some gold embossing powder to alter their color to the gold. I also cut some sketchy circles in my Cameo and gold embossed them to layer under circle punched pieces of paper from the collection!

“October”, by Katie Rose.
I think gold goes perfectly with the new Hello Autumn collection. I choose to add touches of gold using some gold glitter card stock. I cut the quote using my Silhouette Cameo and then punched a couple of stars and a border strip with punches to tie the gold in a little more with the rest of the layout. I ran out of o's when spelling October with the chipboard letters so i substituted the adorable chipboard pumpkin for one of the o's. I think it ends up being my favorite part of the layout.

“Owl Thanks” card, by Ashley Marcu.
Sometimes just adding a little gold goes a long way. I layered lots of beautiful elements from Hello Autumn then put a touch of gold with the enamel dots around the owl and sentiment.

“Celebrate Christmas” card, by Ashley Marcu.
Creating a scene with the chipboard and sticker pieces is so fun! I grounded the Christmas tree, reindeer and sentiment with some decorative tape and a little gold cardstock to add some shine.
