A Few "Favorite" Projects

Hello, Authentique friends!  Keely here to share my creations with the beautiful new collection, "Favorite".  The blues and yellows, the lovely patterns, and sweet silhouettes...simply amazing.

I created this fun 4"x 4" Easel Card with these sweet patterned papers.  I used a Spellbinders die to create a background for the adorable silhouette sticker.  I adhered a button to the center of the bottom card panel to allow the card to sit upright.  You could also tie a ribbon with a bow in the center to anchor your card.

I love trying new card templates.  This Easel Card is so easy to create.  I've created a template below to create this square Easel Card.  After you've mastered the square, hop over to Pinterest and search for other Easel Card shapes, such as hearts, circles, etc...



This layout was so fun to create.  I used one of the Authentique Life Cards as my title.  This pack of 34 cards coordinates perfectly with the collection and has great sayings that inspire so many projects.  I chose 3 of my favorite things for this layout: Starbucks, my puppies, and running.


I love the distressed beauty of this vintage collection.  I played on that vintage look by adding lots of ink and layering.  Flowers, pearls, and inky stencil swirls were finishing touches.  I fussy cut some flowers and used lots of great collection stickers.
Be sure to pick up this great collection.  And visit the blog each day for lots of design team inspiration.
