All week long we are playing with Authentique papers! How awesome is that?

We are so excited for this week and trust me when I say our papers are a match made in heaven!  But seeing is believing, right? So make sure you stick around all week long for some inpsiration and a giveaway of course!

Make sure you check out the Authentique BLOG for more ideas and a giveaway  AND their complete lines of gorgeous papers HERE.

AND PLEASE head over to Authentique’s FACEBOOK page to say “hi”!!!

We cannot get enough of this Be(you)tiful line, can you tell???

First let’s start with a fabulous mini album page from Jill Lebbin. Jill used the Chocolate Box for her title. See that sanding??!?!?


She used one of those fun crafts straws on her layout for some dimension….how COOL!

And a goooorgeous card from Gail Linder. I mean she CUT this pattern herself?!?!

I just loved the colors in the Be(You)tiful collection and wanted to include a few patterns in my project, along with a couple of coordinating colors of Core! A quick search on Pinterest for chevron patterns and I decided on one and got to work building it up. 
It took a little while to piece it all together but am very happy with how it turned out. I chose a couple of colors from the Vintage cardstock collection to match beautifully, and the vintage wash toned with the style of the papers.  
What fun colors and patterns to play with!


I mean..AMAZING!

The fabulous Kate Nolan Denham is up next with a layout. I love how she used the Red Pepper from the Brights Collection pack with the Be(you)tiful line. There are all these little accents of this color throughout the line and it is so so pretty!

I pulled out Core’dinations Brights Core Essential Collection to find the perfect cardstock to play on the pretty colors in Authentique’s Be(you)tiful Collection.  It matches  perfectly with bits and pieces of this line like here in the arrow from the accents sheet.
The rosettes were created from Core’dinations Cardstock and a die by Sizzix.  I used the same rosette die in creating ruffled border.  Instead of folding and connecting the the rosettes,  I overlapped the three creased layers to create the border. Let’s not forget about the amazing journal spots that come with Authenique collections. Cut them out and you have instant journaling areas. No excuses not to journal!

And a fast and fabulous card from Kim Moreno! You can never have too many of these ready to go for those special occasions that just seem to sneak up on you. Kim embossed the grey cardstock and sanded it slightly to reveal the color core and then tore it along the bottom edge. Aftering  punching and sasnding the butterflies, she adhered them to her card.

    Wonderful projects. I haven’t used any straws – but after seeing Jill’s page I may have to try fitting them into some of my projects. Being able to distress the embossed Core’dinations paper really makes it easy to add texture to your items. thanks for having the hop. It was great.

    Oh my goodness! So many lovely projects to look at today! I saw the Be(you)tiful collection the other day and I am kicking myself for not butying it!! Instead I bought a huge package of Core’dinations 🙂 which I am thrilled with, but I think I definitely need to go back for the Authentique pack now! Love Jill’s page but I must admit that I did a double take when I first looked at it; the cotton candy looks like a child’s face – was not sure who was taking the bite lol. Kate’s layout is just gorgeous and that picture – wow what a beuatiful girl 🙂 Love both cards! The fussy cutting and the distressing – every little part makes me happy! Thanks for the inspiration today ladies!
