31 Pages in 31 Days: retro anniversary, Day Seventeen

31 Pages 31 Days 2021-001

31 Pages in 31 Days… is she crazy? Not yet! But close! I started 31 Pages in 31 Days because August was kind of a slow month for me when my kids were young. That has changed! I've discovered things have not gotten any less busy than when I had littles. It's a different busy (outside the house rather than in it) and more complicated when the kids are teens.

And now I supposedly have a sophomore in college? Right! Fake news!!! I cannot possibly be that old.

Like it or not, time flies! We're already past the halfway point of this month-long blog series, too! Here's today's inspiration page, a 60th wedding anniversary celebration in mixed metals.

I love the mix of copper, gold and silver in this paper. It's fun because you can draw out any of them with Soft Suede (copper), Crumb Cake (gold) or Smoky Slate (silver). Just be sure to throw some diamond rhinestones on if you're doing a 60th anniversary page, too, because that's the official metal/color for that anniversary.

Here's a card I made with this paper, angled so the foil embossing shows off better and accented with copper embossing powder!

All right, I'm moving on from the Simply Elegant suite beginning with tomorrow's post…. so many papers, so little time! Next month for Suite Sampler I'm featuring the Blackberry Harvest suite, so maybe I'll open a pack of that and start playing. It is so fun to "have" to play with all these pretty things for my job! You could totally scrapbook for a living… let's talk about getting you signed up as a Stampin' Up demonstrator during the amazing Starter Kit special this month!
