A "Lovely" Tuesday full of Inspiration with Authentique Paper & Petaloo!

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and 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!

I love pairing up Authentique papers with Petaloo anything...
they were made for each other, which makes any project
using the two fun!
Today I'm sharing a layout of my daughter with photos
that I took after her last dancing show.
 I started with a background from one of the Lovely papers, 
"Crush" and a little bit of misting in black velvet by 
Heidi Swapp. The next step was pretty cool...I actually embossed
 a small piece of the "Dearest" paper in a rose pattern and 
used it as the mat for my photos.
The shabby chic look of the Pink Dahlias mix perfectly with
 the cute whimsy of the Mini Florettes with their
 blinged centers.  I placed a small round foam dot on
 the backs of the Florettes so that they would really pop up
 from the embellishment they were added to.  
In keeping with the 'round' embellishment theme, I used the
 three round seals from the "cards repeats" stickers, along 
with a doily die and round punch.  It's fun to experiment
 with the different punch-outs and stickers to see 
what will look best and where...Authentique
gives you so many possibilites in all of their collections!

Authentique: Lovely- Dearest paper, Crush paper, Fancy paper, 
Card Repeats Stickers, Details 12x12 Stickers, Icons Paper
Die Cuts
Petaloo: Mini Florettes Valentines Rd; Dahlias Pink/Lav/Roses

Enjoy the week's worth of "lovely" projects with
Authentique and Petaloo!

Playing cards are one of my favorite things to alter.
They are just the right size for little love notes and messages to leave for your favorite people.
Authentique's "Lovely"  is the perfect collection for making these sweet little love notes.
I also added cool May Arts ribbon and THESE fun Dazzle flowers from Petaloo match perfectly and add just a touch of bling.

  6. That layout is very pretty. I think my favorite parts would be the embossed paper, I don't have the tools to do that yet and I think it is the coolest thing! and the doilies are pretty awesome too! The playing cards are such a unique idea...i would never think of doing something like that!

  72. Sometimes when I see a bunch of loveliness like this all together, I just sit quietly and chuckle to myself, thinking that if it was here with me I'd throw it all in the air and let it settle around me like flowers around a princess. And I'd feel really, really special. And unique, LOL!
