Sweet and Salty 12 x 12 Layout with Page Maps

PMU Header

Hi Authentique Fans! Pam here today! We hope you are enjoying all our inspirational projects using PageMaps Sketches! This month the Authentique Design Team is  pairing up with the PageMaps Design Team to share with you our take on the July PageMaps and CardMaps sketches. We loved working with the PageMaps Design Team, and thank everyone, especially Becky Fleck for this fun opportunity. Today I am sharing my 12 x 12 layout using the July 2018 12 x 12 sketch.


I created a 12 x 12 A Sweet and Salty Layout using the July 12 x 12  PageMaps Sketch. I put "Pam's" spin on it as I created. I love sketches! They are always fun to create with. I used Epherema Cards and pattern paper to my layout in place of extra photos. I want my signature photo to be front and center on my layout. I also love to fussy cut images to use as embellishments. 




Cut strips from a piece of the Sea Maiden Collection tearing the ends off of each strip and adding a small flag/banner to the top.


Add a few fussy cut fishes to the top of layout with pop dots.


Add border strip that has bubbles. 




Slide a small doily die cut along with a banner under the Epherema Card. Fussy cut seashells from pattern paper; add to top with pop dots. 


Adding a few stickers from the Sea Maiden Collection with pop dots adds those extra dimensions we like to see on our layouts.



I hope you are inspired to create some fun layouts using PageMaps Sketches.along with Authentique collections. Feel free to use PageMaps Sketch! Make sure to tag us on all your social media; we love to see what everyone is creating. Thanks for stopping by! Pam

Sea is Calling Layout with Page Maps

PMU Header

Hi Authentique Fans! This month the Authentique Design Team is  pairing up with the PageMaps Design Team to share with you our take on the July PageMaps and CardMaps sketches. We loved working with the PageMaps Design Team, and thank everyone, especially Becky Fleck for this fun opportunity. Thanks also to our Design Team member Daniela Costa for her arrangement of this fun event. Today I am sharing my 8 x 11  layout using the July 2018 8 x 11 sketch.



I created a 8 1/2" x 11" sketch with my up and coming sailor using the July PageMaps Sketch. I put "Pam's" spin on it as I created. I love sketches they are always a jumping place to create something fun. To change the layout up some I used two sizes of hexagon punches to create with along with adding Ephemera cards in place of the extra photos.




Slip Epherema cards under or placing a bit over photos will make your favorite photo stand out. 


Add stickers using pop dots will create dimension.


Adding some of the Seafarer stickers for the "subtitles' work perfectly and don't forget to add a few of the other stickers and gemstones to continue the creative process of the sketch. Feel free to use PageMaps Sketch using your Authentique Collections! Make sure to tag us on all your social media; we love to see what everyone is creating. Thanks for stopping by! Pam
