Have a Golden Day and a Video

The craft world is embracing metallics these days.  They are everywhere.  Between the Occasions Catalog, the Annual Catalog and Sale-a-Bration, we have an AMAZING variety of metallics.  Today, I want to talk about the golds.  After I blab on and one for a bit about all the great gold products, I’ll share a video I made about one of my favorite gold items in the Occasions Catalog.

Without further ado, here’s a quick peek at the gold items available in the current catalogs.  You can click on any of the images to read more about them in my online store:

  1. LOTS OF GOLD! Thanks for showing us your speedy way to separate the gold thread from the baker’s twine, Brian.

  2. Great video and tip! Thanks.

  3. Sharon J. Jones

    Cool idea, Brian! Love how easy it is. TFS.

  4. Love it …love it ! I love everything you have shown today ! And that technique of separation is a keeper (that means you can do the same with silver ) I think the little gold wispy thingies add a touch of “cute” .
    And the Oscar(big gold guy) goes to Brian King !!

    So, that’s how you did this, eh? Super clever, I love the way the gold thread curls up, super cute. Thanks for the tip, this gold Baker’s Twine is a two for one deal.
    Happy Sunday.

  6. Oh Brian – you know I love anything that sparkles! Once you separate the gold from the twine then you can run the twine through any ink pad to get exactly the color you want. Meanwhile anyone who doesn’t want all that lovely, glittery left over from the separation can send it to me! LOL

    All kidding aside that was a great tip. AND of course, we love it when you make videos, it’s always so fun to see your face and hear your voice. You make a fantastic teacher.

  7. Wonderful information! Love all the gold! Thank you for sharing your great tips.

  8. Wow! I did not realize all the gold items available! Thanks Brian!

  9. I love your quick video tips!! Keep ’em coming!! 🙂

  10. I didn’t realize the gold and twine separate so easily! Thanks for the video. It’s always good to see you and hear your voice. Nancy B

  11. This was a super great post, Brian. You did a great job just highlighting the metallics in one place. That twine separation trick was great too. I’m enjoying your videos very much and hope you continue them. 🙂

  12. Great tip! Thank you. You just brightened my cold, snowy day just seeing your happy face! Great video!

  13. I love that you not only thought that the twine could be separated, but you took all the guesswork and frustration out of doing so!

  14. Always love a video from you, Brian, and it hadn’t occurred to me to separate out the gold! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Neat idea Brian…never would have thought of that one. Understand you are going to Ticson. Look forward to meeting you

  16. Woohoo Brian , you were great. And love your idea,
    We want more,
    Hugs frenchie ,

    Glorious Gold all in one place & in one post!! You GO Brian!! 🙂 You went for the gold in yet another video!! This one was succinct and very useful!!! Well done, thank you, and I can’t wait for the next one!!!!!

  19. I’ve ordered a pack of Silver Glimmer paper to make my own wedding reception invites!! whoop whoop! I finally get to make my own 😀

  20. Who woulda thunk you could separate the twine that way?!? Thanks for the golden post!
