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!
Before we give you all the goods 😉 PLEASE check out both companies on Pinterest and follow them for endless inspiration!
First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!
You can see the beauty of the Core’dinations inner core with each page being embossed and sanded. The Authentique pattern papers match perfectly with Core’dinations cardstock.
This Authentic Tradition collection is truly a complete collection to allow for a finished album without the need to purchase additional supplies.
The Authentique sticker elements embellished the album by bring back memories of our Christmas Eve Celebration.
I couldn’t wait to dive into the NEW David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system for things other than cards. Making gift bags is one of my favorite things and I knew the time had come when I wanted to make a mini album for a friend who just had the cutest little guy a year ago. So I made a premade album for her so all she needed to do was just add photos.
I used one of the tags from Step 3. The tags come with different pre-embossed designs so all you need to do is sand.
Same with the Step 2 layers. They make PERFECT pages for the album AND NO CUTTING or EMBOSSING!!!!!! Just sand them if you want and adhere. SO SO easy.
We cannot wait to see what you can do with the NEW David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system. It’s not just for cards…the possibilities are endless.
So I hope you have loads of good things to do this weekend! And if you are crafting, I hope it’s gonna be with some Core.

We have some amazing altered pieces for you today.
First up is an album AND matching frame set from Design Team Member Char Dobson. LOVE how these ladies worked the metal door plates from Graphic 45 Staples collection!!!! LOOK at all that Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless collection! We love how our Cardstock looks with shine so Char used some Maya Mist …looks gorgeous, don’t you think?
Here are some details on the album. The album is Graphic 45. These premade Policy Envelopes from the Staples collection make creating minis so easy!!!! Char used Glue Arts and Helmar Adhesives to help create this gorgeous mini,too.
AND a printer’s tray with Designer April Derrick. The details are amazing.
April die cut out the treasures title using the Graphic 45 Signature Series cardstock and then applied glossy accents to the top so when it dried it has a 3-d effect.
Them April took the metal flowers from Graphic 45 Staples collection and ran them through the Cuttlebug and embossed them, then painted them with some Tattered Angels silver metallic glimmer glaze! And add some Petaloo flowers. Love them in black.
