Love is in the Air 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!

Heather Conklin
Today's project was a long way in the making. I've had these adorable photos of my little one for awhile now, just waiting for the perfect papers to mix them with. Although they are not Valentine photographs, the "lovely" pinks, reds, black and creams of the Lovely Collection are perfect. I loved adding all of the different Petaloo flowers throughout the layout.
I started with a full sheet of Amour, then layered DaintyValentine and Be Mine, using the Kiwi Lane Designs templates in Paisley Place to showcase all of the various papers. The photos were matted using the 6x6 pad from the Paper Crafting Assortment.
I then added Petaloo's wonderful flowers from their Spring Darjeeling collection (Mini DaisiesDahlias, and Mini Pearl Daisies), along with some small embellishments from the Paper Crafting Assortment. I love all of the little die cuts in the set.
The little lock sticker is a perfect addition, peeking out from behind the photo corner.
I die cut the title using my Silhouette and both the pattern and the reverse of the Keynote paper. It needed something more however, so I used the Picolla Cool-Set Enameling Gel in Napthol Red. The Enameling Gel was a perfect addition, as it gave shine and dimension to the heart.
Lastly, I added another die cut from the Paper Crafting Assortment, and another Mini Pearl Daisy.
It was really fun to play with flowers in a layout. All of the little details really made this a special project that I know that I will cherish forever.

I can never get enough flowers.  They seem to be a staple in my scrappy stash, so I was so excited to be able to use Petaloo on my Lovely project.  Guiseppa here, to share with you a shadow box frame I made using Lovey and Petaloo flowers.

I made my frame from a Silhouette cut, so it is all cardstock...kind of cool huh?  I used some Lovely to makes some additional flowers and to line the inside of the box.  I also used the Lovely Element Stickers for added establishments next to the flowers.  I added a little bit of pink ribbon from May Arts.

The message inside the box is a from my sweet hubby Sam.  He wrote some things about me that he loved and gave it to me one day.  I thought it was so sweet and I needed to find a way to display this cute way of him showing his affection for me.




Just an idea here, but maybe you could break out a bit of Lovely and make a special Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life.

Lovely: Dainty #LOV015, Elements #LOV008, Details #LOV007 and 6x6 Bundle #LOV009

  25. I love Heather's use of a Valentine paper on non Valentine pictures. I also love the way she took 2 papers and made them look like a ribbon twisting to show the front and back sides. Very clever!
    Guiseppa; I love the fact that you used a note from your husband and made it into a daily reminder of his love for you. While I have no 'love notes' I do have several of the little cards that come with flowers, signed by my husband. They've been sitting in a drawer and now you've given me an idea of what I can do with them. I love your use of flowers on the frame. Both projects were gorgeous!
