A Shabby Chic Easter Mini with a Touch of Bling


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


After you check out the project here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the ZVA Creative blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************
ZVA Creative bling and Authentique Paper are a match made in heaven. Bling & flourishes and anything girly are my guilty pleasures. I love to jazz up my projects but sometimes it's easy to go overboard. ZVA Creative  products add a nice subtle touch to projects without over-embellishing. 

I love to make mini albums, that's obvious. Each mini album that I create I try to add something different. For my project today, I wanted to keep it simple. Our "Hope" collection is very elegant with a lot of beautiful detail, so going overboard was one thing I was trying to avoid. 

I added some ZVA Creative flourishes on the cover of my paper album along with some flowers from Petaloo and a sticker from our "Hope" 12x12 details sticker sheet. 

I made this mini album out of plain kraft colored paper lunch bags. They went perfectly with this collection! I love the shabby chic look! 

The Velveteen Rabbit feel of this collection takes a lot of us back to our childhood making projects made with "Hope" great for any age, boy or girl! 

Products Used:
Authentique Paper- "Hope" Collection: 8x8 Bundle, 12x12 Details Stickers
ZVA Creative- Light blue flourishes, Tan pearl flourishes
May Arts- Ribbons
Petaloo- FloraDoodle Hydrangeas
