Earth Friendly Friday - save those coffee sleeves

Hello Authentique Fans!  JJ here, to share my first Earth Friendly Friday project with you.   Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a Starbucks addiction.  I generally bring my own travel mug with me, but when I forget, I make sure to save the coffee sleeves. 


They have a great texture - I really like the small-scale corrugation for using on scrapbook layouts.  It's a very boy-friendly colour too, and turns out it goes perfectly with the Curiosity collection:


The coffee sleeve adds some depth, so I added foam-dots to some of the sticker Elements to make them stand out more.  Adding height to the Elements I wanted to emphasize, makes the cardboard visually recede a bit (you don't want it to be the first thing you see).


The thick Authentique papers really stand up to distressing, so I like to take advantage of that.


Having a variety of sizes in the sticker elements makes it easy to create embellishment clusters.   I slipped in a little more of the coffee sleeve here, too.


Products Used:
Curiosity "Studious", "Determined", "Learning", "Academic", Details stickers, Elements stickers
