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!
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?!?!
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!
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.
Happy Thursday! Today we have some gorgeous projects for you! I mean, don’t we always?
First up Designer Gail Linder and a beautiful display of our Pastel Core Essentials Collection Pack
I love fun color combinations! For this layout I had a special story to tell and a couple of photos that I converted to black and white so I could use a soft color scheme to match the overall “feel” of the layout. So of course, my first stop was the pastel cardstock collections for some soft pinks, aquas and yellow.
I used a simple grid design, adding cardstock squares the same size as my photos. I then had fun embellishing each cardstock block with – you guessed it – more cardstock! But when I added the layers on top, I embossed, sanded and distressed them to make them stand out and add dimension!
For a scrapper like me that LOVES distressed edges, Core’dinations cardstock sure makes that easy! With minimal effort (ie. just a light sand), your edges are DONE! I even sanded the tiny scallop edge and die cut letters!
My little girl started school this year and (I’m sure all Mothers would agree) that it was quite an emotional time! The night before the first day of school, I wrote her a letter that I hope she’ll read and appreciate in years to come. As the journaling was quite long, I added a flap to the cardstock blocks so they lift up to reveal the journaling underneath! Fun!
