Share the Love with Foil-Mates Blog Hop

Hi Friends,

Welcome to our Share the Love with Foil-Mates blog hop! Today, the design team and I have some projects to share featuring the Valentine's Day collection of Foil-Mates products!

This collection is not only for Valentine's Day! The greetings in this collection are perfect for the love of your life but there are many options for your children, best friend, coworkers and more. Whoever holds and special place in your heart will love a beautiful, sparkling Foil-Mates card. These big bold sentiments and backgrounds also work well for candy treats, specialty boxes, and tags.

You can get your Foil-Mates for just about any occasion by visiting our online store here: 
Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates Collection

Here are three projects I made using this new collection.


It's always easier for me to show you how I make things rather than write up a step-by-step tutorial, so today, I have a special video showing you how easy it is to create these foiled projects!

You can watch the video here:



The design team has put together a fun blog hop for you and we are giving away a $50 Gift Certificate! As you hop through each of the sparkling blogs, leave a comment. We will choose one lucky winner who will take home a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs online store. :)

  3. I really want to start using the foils. Is the 3M laminator from the craft box stores adequate?

    1. Janet, I use Scotch machine from Walmart. Was ready to give up until I used parchment paper with card stock shim on 5ml setting. I have been sending it thru twice (haven't tried it with one send thru...yet)

    2. I have had some success with the Scotch and with other less expensive lamintors. I would certainly try it before buying a new machine! :)

  93. Thank you Gina for a wonderful video. I love sparkly things also. I love the red and green foils that came out at Christmas time. Your cards are beautiful.

Thanks for that too.
