I usually think that metallic papers are best left for Christmas crafting but I went out of my comfort zone and used beautiful gold foil prominently on a scrapbook layout. Using a BW photo and minimizing the number of colors really allowed the gold to take center stage. Embossing the foil creates a wonderful intricate and crisp image and I adore how elegant and feminine the layout came out. In fact you don't need to embellish it because it is so pretty already. Let me show you how I did it and share a few tips with you along the way.
Crafters Glossy Pack Gold
Other Supplies: double sided tape, Floral Whimsical Embossing Folder (Darice), Ebosser Die Cutting Machine (Craftwell), Black Glitter Cardstock (The Robin's Nest), Black Cardstock, Gold Metallic Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), Gold Glitter Journaling Tag (The Robin's Nest), Gold Straw Fibers (The Robin's Nest), Craft Knife, 3" Circle Paper Punch, Puffy Sticker Embellishments (Paper House), photo 4x5"
1. Emboss 5 pieces of gold foil. (4x5")
2. Adhere 3 embossed foil pieces vertically across the top 1/3 of the layout leaving a 1/4" gap between them.
3. Next, double matte the photo with gold and then black glitter cardstock. Layer it with a gold glitter journal tag and attach it overlapping the gold embossed foil in the upper left.
4. Select some flourishes within the patterned background paper and carefully cut around them with a craft knife not to remove them but enough to allow them to be raised with foam tape. After all the selected areas are cut, adhere black cardstock to the back of the layout to camouflage the missing paper and provide support and stability. Place foam tape underneath the flourishes to raise them and to add more dimension to the layout.
5. Carefully cut out flowers & blossoms from the remaining two gold embossed sheets. Set these aside to be used later as embellishments. (TIP: if you have small gold scraps, place them in the embossing folder aligned over a flower and run it through the die cutting machine.)
6. Carefully, wind 3 loops of Gold Straw into concentric circles and adhere over the photo to accentuate the face.
7. Punch a 3" circle of black glitter cardstock and adhere loops of Gold Straw to the edge. Attach gold embossed flowers to the right side and adhere the circular cluster to the lower right corner.
8. Adhere a large word embellishment to the right of the photo.
9. Lastly, add gold gems to the center of the flowers. Finally, embellish the layout with clusters of gold embossed flowers. Apply gold glitter glue to some segments of the recessed parts of the petals.
TIP: Any area of the background paper that will be covered with other layers provides images that can be removed and used as embellishments. If you carefully plan the layout before adhering anything to the background, you can rescue bits of hidden paper. Remove sections and use a craft knife to fussy cut flowers & flourishes to be used as embellishments. All of the black & gold flourish designs were part of the background that was hidden under other layers. This is a very useful technique if you only have one sheet of paper so you can really stretch your supplies further.

Sonja is on the blog today with an amazing double scrapbook layout filled with memories of her sweet dogs. She pairs Rinea Copper Glossy Foil with foiled paper by DCWV and they work wonderfully together!!
It is still hard to believe we don't have clip clops of puppy dog nails on the floors anymore. No more dog hair, puppy kisses, or wiggle butts running around the house.
While our girls have joined each other over the Rainbow Bridge in the last three years, I was still able to capture many happy moments that will last a life time on paper! For whatever reason, this months Stack-a-holic challenge from DCWV made me think of these photos from a few years ago. It was a match made in scrapbook heaven! Speaking of heaven made matches, I was able to use a lot of Rinea Copper Foil for this layout. It matched DCWV's 'Rose Quartz' stack perfectly.
Dakohta Maei was our white/brown boxer mix who we more often or not referred to as Moo-Moo. She passed away December 30th, 2013 at almost 9 1/2 years old. We had her literally from the day she was born. She was the only pup that I was able to witness be born from my brothers mama dog. She was our gentle giant who HATED water!
Seaka Raei was our brindle full bred boxer who was my birthday gift. We had her at 6 weeks old. She passed away October 2nd, 2016 at 10 years and 8 months old. I have yet to adjust to not seeing her in the window when we pull up in the driveway. She loved water!
Here is how I made this double layout.
1) To start with I was able to emboss the copper sheets of Rinea Foil with my Big Shot and a puppy dog paw embossing folder by Darice.
2) Cut a bunch or rectangles in the copper and black to adhere the photos to. Settings for these cuts are on copy paper, blade at a 1, and I find that thickness at 7 works just right for the copper.
3) I grabbed this gorgeous quartz cardstock from the DCWV stack and did the circles.
4) Measured and laid out the copper first. It just so happens that the full sheet the comes in the package was just the right fit for what I needed. Then I added the banner at the top of the copper.
One little thing I do when working on matching layouts is cut the objects in half before removing them from the mat. A simple line drawn down the middle in Silhouette Studio, aligned middle and center works great!
Now comes the fun part. Putting it together and adding all the special little touches! The rose and copper paired nicely

Hi all, Linda here today. Recently I purchased the Spellbinders Whirl-About die and knew that it would be a perfect match to use with Rinea foil. I love the intricate designs in this die set and using it with the two sided foil would be beautiful.
This card may look complicated but it really isn't when you have one of these dies. Could you imagine having to cut each of those shapes with a craft knife? They used to do that years ago before die cutting machines came out. I even have a stencil to help with this process that I got years ago - I'm talking like 20 years ago. LOL
Cut gold/purple Rinea Foil to just under 4.25 in. x 5.5 in. This will then leave a small white boarder when you place it on your card if you cut it just a little shy of the measurements. Die cut largest set of dies out of gold / purple Rinea Foil in the upper area of the paper with the Purple side up.
Fold over the the tabs and tuck under the points.
Take the negative left from the die cut and emboss with Flower Vine embossing folder with the gold side up. Adhere to white A2 greeting card with Thermoweb Memory Tape Runner XL.
Adhere Die cut in the center of negative with the Purple side up using Thermoweb Memory Tape Runner XL.
On a scrap of white cardstock stamp Happy Anniversary from Sharon's Script set in Brutus Monroe Detail ink - Raven. Cut the ends into pennant shape. With an awl or small hole punch make two holes at each end. Place a round min gold brad in each hole. Add White Adhesive Foam Squares to the back and apply to the bottom of the card.
Finally add a Gold Glitter Round Bling Gemstone Sticker to the center of the die cut shape. Enjoy your beautiful card.
Here is a video of how to make this card.
When this card is finished you will be proud of your creation as it is so beautiful.

Monica is on the blog to with some amazing mixed media tags using Rinea foil to really set them apart. Adding that little touch of foil to each tag just made them even more special.
Thank you for joining me for another Rinea design team project. For my project I decided to make two mixed media tags.
he tags measure at 8 1/2 inches in height and 4 1/2 inches in width. I used the Riena foil in the Textured Star Struck Copper and Gold foil paper to add behind my flowers. Here is the Copper Star Struck tag.
As always these foil papers give each tag that pop of color and interest. I enjoyed working with these beautiful paper. Here is the Gold Star Struck Tag
I hope to see you at my next project!

There are so many fun and creative ways to make a card. This is a great technique to use on cards to make them extra special – pop outs!
The materials needed to make this card include:
Copper Rinea Foil Glossy Paper
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to make the card.
1) Trim the Rinea foil paper to .25 inches less than card on both sides. For example, if your card measures 4 inches by 5.5 inches, you would trim it to 3.75 by 5.25 inches.
2) Emboss the Rinea foil paper
3) Using a fast drying ink lightly run ink pad over embossed Rinea. This will help the embossed pattern POP! Set aside to dry.
4) Stamp image and color.
5) Since this is a pop out card and the image is serving as the focal point for both the front and the inside of the card, it is important to decorate the inside too! Carefully fussy cut the stamped image or use a circle cutter making sure it is smaller than the circle it is popping through on card.
6) Cut a piece of scrap paper .25 inches wide by about 1.5 inches tall. Fold it up like you would to make a paper spring. Attach one end of paper spring to the image, and the other image to the inside of the card making sure image pops through card opening.
7) Adhere Rinea paper to card front.
8) Flip Card over and cut six slits (an X and + over the x)
9) Tear off a few of the pieces of Rinea foil paper and use a pencil to roll back the rest revealing the image. Make sure the image pops through the front of the card. Keep rolling back the Rinea and/or tear until the image pops through.
Your pop out card will fit in a regular sized envelope and is ready to be mailed! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please share your pop out cards making sure you tag #Rineafoil and me (Scrappygal75 on Instagram). I would love to see what you create!
Until Next Time – Happy Crafting!
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a new project to share. Winter has gone on far too long and I've started to create Spring projects. I have been having fun with Rinea Foils and this month I created an Easter project.
I painted the edges of my panel with Tattered Angels paint. Since Easter is all about bunnies and Easter eggs, I die cut the bunny from my Cricut Expression and just added a wiggly eye and fuzzy tail.
The Easter eggs were really fun to create. I used an Easter egg punch to punch the Easter eggs from assorted Embossed Foils - Blue, Purple and Hot Pink. I stamped assorted designs on Glossy Silver Foil and heat embossed them. Heat embossing turns out beautifully on the foils, just be careful not to overheat.
I created grass using the Glossy Green/Gold Foil. I simply cut a 1" strip of foil, cut into it randomly, then rolled the cut edges over giving the illusion of grass. I adhered this to the bottom of my panel, then I placed the eggs in the corner under the grass.
The base eggs were adhered to the panel using Beacon Adhesive. I placed foam adhesives under the top eggs for dimension. I also added several gems to the pink egg.
Happy Easter was die cut from Hot Pink Embossed Foil with Sizzix dies.
Rinea Foils can be easily die cut and punched. I have been able to punch 4 layers of foils and still have a perfect image. The cuts are always clean and crisp.
What do you think? Isn't this a sweet Easter project?
