Red White and Blue Authentique style


Authentique Paper and Core'dinations are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Core'dinations products!

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

**********
 
For my project today I created a layout using the new Glory Collection ,
which happens to go perfectly with the Core'dinations Kraft Core collection by Tim Holtz. The red No. 3 is a perfect match with the colors in Glory.

When I sanded my stars, the kraft color underneath was a perfect match to the off white of the patterned papers.  To make the stars, I embossed them using a chipboard star and a stylus.  I then lightly sanded the embossed image and TADA!...fabulousness!

Here's a look at my layout:

and a few closer looks

  16. My kitchen is all Americana so I just love this collection, what makes it stand apart for me is the rustic
    vintage feel. The musical background paper is a fave.
