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?
Yesterday evening, the second of my Birthday Party Live events took place over on my Facebook page – if you missed the video, you can view this here on my blog or over on my Youtube challenge. Thank you to those of you who watched and showed your support, it is much appreciated.
During my first live stream, we made 5 incolor notecards and I mentioned a box to house the notecards and their envelopes. Of the five colours to choose from, I went with Magenta Madness – as someone who doesn’t really like pink, this colour is amazing! To keep in with the theme of the cards, I decorated the front in the same design as the cards.
The notecards fit perfectly inside with their envelopes and make the perfect gift or craft fair item. With a switch of the sentiment, they could suit any occasion too!

These incolor notecards came about from an idea my daughter had – a few weeks ago, I made a Penguin Winter Card using an ink technique, which she wanted to do again. However, with the small surface area that a notecard presents, she decided to use a single colour in a simple circle.
Together, we added a simple sentiment and finished them off with a resin dot. Keeping them simple and without using many resources.
