Homestead Country Market with Petaloo

Authentique Paper and Petal are teaming up over the next week to bring you some amazing inspiration featuring our newest collections along with Petal Products! 

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!




This Homestead collection may quite possibly be my favorite collection of all time.  I just love the farmhouse look with all those gingham prints, roosters, chicken wire, old recipes and flowers, I mean seriously, this collection has it all.  For my projects today, I just had to create a country marketplace along with a vintage wheelbarrow, filled to the rim with my favorite flowers from Petaloo that match perfectly.


The marketplace house / country store is actually a collection that was dowloaded from SVG Cuts, then assembled and adorned with pattern papers from the Homestead collection.  


The Darjeeling flowers from Petaloo create a sweet pathway on the large front porch and when grouped together, they are just perfect.


I accompanying stickers make a sweet store title, and once again I added the flowers up on the top, along with a little rusty star.


The windows are lined with vellum and more flowers are added under the patriotic banner.


To get the most out of this project, I added a string of mini battery powered LED lights to the inside to bring the country market to life.


In addition to the 3D house and market, I also created a vintage wheelbarrow, from the same collection of SVG Cuts files, and assembled it.  I then adhered a styrofoam ball to the barrow and hot glued a bunch of Petaloo flowers, from the Darjeeling and Textured Elements line, to cover the ball.  


The colors of these blooms are so perfect with the Homestead collection and I just love all the textures. 


Adhere a sticker to the front along with a little rusty star for a truly rustic, vintage look. 


Your wheelbarrow is ready to roll out to the garden.  

I am so in love with this Homestead collection, Authentique Papers have truly knocked this collection out of the park, and I hope I've inspired you to create these projects for yourself.

Petaloo and Utopia are a Perfect Match

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you some amazing inspiration featuring our newest collections along with Petaloo Products! 

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

There is just something so beautiful about the Utopia Collection. As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with the bright colors and patterns. I wanted to immediately break out the photos from our last beach visit and scrap away.


The Petaloo flowers paired perfectly with the lovely prints and patterns of Utopia. I loved tucking them in, and around the Components die cuts and Details stickers.


The burlap flowers are just beautiful, and the canvas Dogwood blooms are just the perfect shade of blue.


I even cut down a couple of the Authentic Life Cards to use for journaling areas and additional patterns.



All of the layering of die cuts and stickers only looks that much better with the addition of the Petaloo blooms.



I couldn't stop playing with the Utopia Collection and Petaloo quite yet, and also created this fun flip flop 3D box.



I started with the fun Silhouette cut, and just added the gorgeous Utopia papers and Petaloo blooms and Trims. This was super easy from start to finish.


The pieces were cut from the 12x12 papers (Rejuvenate, Freestyle, Enhancements).


On the "straps" of the flip flop, I added the Burlap Trims in Teal. Then added a few of the Details stickers to make it really cute.



Lastly, I took a couple of the Mixed Texture Layers in Teal, and layered them up with some coordinating brads that I had in my supplies, and created a fun detail on the thong part of the flip flop.


I hope that you get a chance to play with both Authentique's fun new collections and some Petaloo flowers soon!


Supplies Used:
Authentique Paper: Utopia Collection (Freestyle, Paradise, Succulent, Felicity, Components, Details, Authentic Life Cards, Rejuvenate, Freestyle, Enhancements)
