Guest Designer: Romy Veul

My name is Romy Veul and I'm a 20 year old scrapbooker from The Netherlands. I study Dutch language and Linguistics at University in Amsterdam. When I'm not studying or spending time with my family, boyfriend or friends, I love to spend time in my craft room. Scrapbooking and cardmaking have been my biggest passions for approximately 7 and a half years now. My style could be best described as romantic, detailed and layered. I always like to work with romantic and shabby chic papers and love to combine them with lots of details, while still making sure that my projects look balanced. Authentique has always been one of my favorite companies. I love the high quality papers in beautiful colors and the coordinating stickers and die-cuts are always really pretty too. It is a huge honor for me to be guest designing for the Authentique blog. 
I love to make tags and the papers from the Smitten 6x6 bundle has the perfect size for them. On this tag I made a nice composition with some of the stickers and die-cuts that come with this collection. Most of the stickers were adhered with foam tape to make them stand out more.

I think this card perfectly shows how much I love to use layering and details on my projects. Besides using many layers of paper, I also layered several stickers and die-cuts. 

I stapled the stickers and added foamtape among the layers for a dimensional look. I also cut out some hearts and punched two butterflies as a finishing touch to my card. 

This card is a rather simple one for me. I have been hoarding the die-cuts from previous year's Lovely collection for a while and finally found the perfect card to use the Bingo die-cut card. I first adhered several layers to my card base and then used the bingo card on top of them. I thought it made a nice backdrop for my die-cut floral wreath and the little cluster that I made in the center of my card.
