Stay Golden by Jennifer
Hi everyone! It is Jennifer Timko with today’s project. I wanted to share with you a bit of why I love Erin and her projects. And no, she has no idea that I’m typing this so we’ll keep it between us until she sees it! *smile* As with all crafters, I have a great appreciation for art and creativity. The most special thing about Erin is something I got to see when I met her in person just over a year ago. Erin has a wonderfully fresh perspective and a truly unique sense of design. She creates products that I didn’t even know I needed...until I see it! How lucky we are to have her entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity in our crafty world.
And that was my starting point for today’s card. I love this Stay Golden Word Die! Love it. From the Urban Dictionary, “Stay Golden” means “Stay true, real”. Yeah. How better to cheer someone on who is struggling with confidence or a big decision? As a mom of a high school senior, I thought this would be perfect for him as he starts to make choices about next year.
I kept this clean (like almost always) but tried to make it a bit more wow by using glitter paper with the dies. The Nesting Stars Die Set seemed like a perfect choice to go with the sentiment. I love the overall shape of these and the varied widths make them fun to use together or apart. I added a few gold sequins for a little more shine and decided to call it good. There is only so much “stuff” a high school boy will tolerate after all.
I hope you find some motivation in this no stamping card. And make sure to take a look through Erin’s shop for other sentiments like this that you just need to have. You are sure to find her trend creating products inspiring. Thanks so much for stopping in today. Until next time, Stay Golden!
