Authentique Paper Guest Post + Giveaway

13 Jun

I am so excited that I was invited to have the opportunity to do a guest spot for Authentique Paper.

I am mostly using papers from the line called CAREFREE.

I came across this thing at my local thrift store.

I have no idea what it was originally for, but I have needed a cute napkin holder for my kitchen table for a long time.

I used lots of different prints from my 6 x 6 Carefree bundle.

I love Authentique’s different alphabet stickers and have quite a few from their different lines.

 I used those alphas to spell out gently manner reminders that I am always needing to remind my kids of.

I applied all the papers with Modge Podge so this would last a long time.

I also mixed in some old sheet music to add some different colors to the project.  The blue paper is from Authentique Paper’s Genuine Line.

I sometimes create things for posts I have no need for, but this is one thing I will use everyday!

Red is my favorite color and goes perfect in my home.

I hope you like this as much as I do.

Next, using the same Carefree Line, I made a small plaque that could be used as a gift for a new mom.

Wouldn’t this be perfect sitting on a shelf or hanging on a wall in a baby’s room?

Using Authentique Paper’s different alphabet stickers, you can customize something like this any way you’d like.

I just love the floral print on the purse!  I would love to have some FABRIC in that print!  AHHHHHH!

I hope you have enjoyed my small visit back with my lovely friends at  Authentique Paper.

Do you know anyone with a baby named MAE?  Do you just love this plaque and want to change the name yourself??

Leave a comment, I could be persuaded to send this to you.  Leave a comment here and on Authentique Paper’s BLOG,

letting me know which of the Authentique Paper lines in your favorite and I will choose a random winner next Wednesday to send this plaque to!

This has been YOU KNOW WHO…tempting you with some CAREFREE fun from Authentique Paper!

Criss Cross Bliss Card

4 May
I came across an awesome tutorial for this Criss Cross card.
You can find the link HERE.
I do have to warn you, I don’t think the directions are very accurate.
After a few revisions, I came up with this lovely card to share today.
This card is one of those things that after I am done, I could kick myself for not writing down the dies I used as I was going along.
I will try my best to let you know all of the dies I used.  On the card base I used:
For the band around the card I used FRANCESCA BORDER, TIFFANY BORDER AND BORDER CARNIVALE.
The sentiment focal point attached to the band, I used the following dies:
Here is the card with the band removed, you can see the Criss Cross Base in back.
All the paper is the brand new line from Authentique Paper called:
I love the way this turned out and I think it would make a perfect Mother’s Day card.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today.
