If ever there was a paper pack that would coordinate with black finish dazzles (and those die cuts as well, which we all luv) it is this one. Why they would pair up with gold mirror is a mystery. (lol, yo'all know how much I luv thinny thin thin mirror dazzles - how many lumpy dazzles did you spot in the samples - ie the difference between handmade and homemade)?

They really should re-consider having die cut sheets in the bundles... as Carol mentioned the coated finish is weird, and I'll toss in that the majority are clunky AND many of the sheets I've rec'd have areas that are NOT die cut at all (via collections/VIP stuff) - poorest quality I've seen for die cuts and represent badly.

having said that, Gail's 2 page spread does not disappoint. Gorrrrgeous!

Lee - I don't think they are Mirror finish but just plain gold finish...but I could be wrong. Will find out when my order comes in because I ordered those...and not to go with the Illuminate paper pack. Funny that you should mention that you don't think they go with the pack.

Lee, I agree, black would be so striking on these papers! gold doesn't cut it on these jewel tones... Love Gails layout too! she is awesome at coming up with 'outside the box' ideas, its needed. Gail says the dazzles are mat gold with shiny edgings... they -the leaves- do look too thin when overlapping different layers on that scrapbook page

I hesitate to toss gail's page in the mix of bumps and nibs, since sbook pages are a personal project/memory you typically keep to yourself. Now, if you were gifting a scrapbook - that left bottom corner dazzle is really having issues over the specialty cstk.

on the other hand - LOVE, LOVE Love the look of smudging the dazzle with black. delicious. when you get your dazzles, Dee - you've gotta give 'em a little smudge !

I love the papers, and as for the dazzles they can easily be altered to black. Gail, did it again...her layout is gorgeous!!!
