Have you gotten your hands on some Authentique Paper yet?
Do you like to win free stuff?
Do you like to use sketches?
Well…get on over to Authentique Paper’s blog and join us in our latest challenge.
Here are the 2 sketches.
Here is the page I have created:)
Did you catch my post the other day about Authentique Paper’s secret?
On this layout, I have used the same technique.
I came up with this idea, because I love both sides of double sided paper and am sad to only use 1 side of the paper.
Here you can see I have already seperated the paper I wanted to use..Yep, I separated a whole 12 x 12 sheet of paper.
The blue is just plain cardstock and the yellow is a piece of old DP that I will not use, it in only being used as my “CANVAS”.
I have already made the base of my page. I made the paper ruffle down the middle with strips of separated papers from the GLOWING line.
Here is a close up. Can you see how cotton/fabric like the inside of the paper is?
Here I have all the pieces ready to assemble. I am building the title on scraps left over from the HEADLINES piece.
Here I have gathered my ruffle and sewn it to the back of a scrap that I pre measured to the length I wanted.
This is the BACK side.
Here is the RIGHT side all stitched up and ready for the rest of the title.
I used this ruffle technique in different places on my page.
I love the extra shabby/worn look the paper gets when it is separated.
All of the main pieces on this page are just 1 layer of the double sided papers.
I used some of the icons to make the custom EPOXY buttons.
I think they add such a nice touch.
Have to have some Authentique rolled flowers, right?
All in all, I really like the way this page turned out.
It will be a page I treasure for a long time.
Here is one last peek.
I would love for you to join the challenge. You can do either a card or scrapbook page. You do not have to own Authentique Products to participate, we would encourage you too, but it is not mandatory.
At this time the prizes can only be shipped to US or CAN.
But the key word here is PRIZE!
You can win some of this fabulous paper to have all to yourself.
Go over to the blog and get inspired by our creative DT and join along!
Come back and leave a comment if you enter so I can see what you made!
For now..Happy Saturday and Happy World Card Making Day!
Now, go make something! I give you permission.
Yes it is true, I have been a little on the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER soapbox lately!
If you have not tried their products, then you really do not know why I am so honored to be working with their products!
Genius is not too small of a word for some of their things!
A couple of reasons why I love Authentique Paper so much:
Quality – Sturdy and thicker that most paper, the prints are just fabulous and there are many palettes to choose from!
Design – I love that there is such a wide range within each line.
Products – My favorite has to be the Diction! You know the little poetry magnets that you can buy?
Well these are similar, minus the poetry and minus the magnet but heavy on the miscellaneous words you can use on everything!
Here is what they look like:
You get all those word on this sturdy cardstock type sticker and there are so many different projects you can use these on!
I wanted to let you know of a tutorial I have done for Authentique Paper on 3 different cards using my favorite line called SPLENDID.
Here is a peak at the cards:
All 3 together.
If you would like (and I hope you do) to see the whole tutorial, here is the link.
Leave a comment here and there and I will tally up all comments and choose a winner to win one of these!
Winner gets to choose which one!
Once again here is the link:
Be sure to leave a comment in both places, let Authentique Paper know that Jeannie sent you over!

Love to you all!!!!!
