Anchors Away! with Authentique Paper & Petaloo!

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of "Nautical" 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!

Shellye McDaniel

Shellye here with a fun take on the popular
Pop-Up Card trend using Authentique's Anchored Collection
and several finds from Petaloo!

 There are a few different recipes online for making these; I've created my own to represent the size I was looking for.  To begin, cut desired double-sided patterned paper to 7"X12".  With the paper laying length wise, score the paper at 2.75", 5.5", 8.25" and 11".  Turn the paper; score at 4".  Next you will cut the paper to create the three flaps:  cut the vertical score lines at 2.75", 5.5" and 8.25" just until the score line meets the horizontal score line.  Fold and glue the final 1" flap down to create the box.

So that you're able to add layers of die-cuts, stickers, etc., cut two (or three)
1/2" X 3.25" strips.  From each end, make a 1/2" fold.  Glue the folds to the inside
edges of the box.  Now you can attach your favorite decorations to the inside.


For my card, I used cutting files from Miss Kate Cuttables!
On the front we have an adorable crab which I embellished with a Petaloo flower.


I wanted to further accentuate the whale's tail, so I added two splashes by attaching them to a thin strip of clear overlay and then adhering to the back of the whale.


The edges of the flaps were edged with some of the Petaloo Taupe ric rac trim.  To the back, I added one of the Petaloo Sea Shell Pins to the top of the sailboat.   The box can now be folded flat and inserted into an envelope for mailing!  I think these look cute for simply displaying or using as a centerpiece for a birthday party or baby shower...lots of ideas!

Hi everyone! Loes here today to show you how well the "Anchored" collection goes with Petaloo products!

This time I decided to make a layout. It's been a long time since I've created a layout!

I found this photo of my sons taken in 2010 and wow the time is flying by!

 I love the deep red and blue colors in this collection.


   I distressed de papers and make some tear here and there. 


I cannot get enough of the details stickers! So many possibilities with them! 

Do you see how great the flowers match?


I used a punch for the edge of the paper.


The stars are from a Sizzix die.


Authentique: 12x12 design papers, detail stickers
Petaloo: flowers, button
Tsukineko: ink
Sizzix: Starcluster, poinsettia dies

  16. Somehow my first comment was gobbled up so if it shows up somehow that is why. The box is a gift all its own. I love the contrast between the light blue star paper and the bright darker blue and the red crab. It makes the whole project pop. The layout is so wonderful the masculine air of the layout with the distressed edges and the fact that there are flowers all over the page is so interesting It is a really special piece.

  44. wow! I've always LOVED beach-theme layouts and projects and these are no exception! I can't wait for the Summer - nothing like a good nice long walk on the ocean shore with the man i love. I'm lucky to live on the coast! :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  45. I love the "Brothers" layout. Especially the fact it uses flowers, yet still maintains a masculine feel through the colour scheme and use of "grunge" elements such as tearing and distressing. Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  46. wonderful project - the "brothers" layout is terrific (really like the artist's style and use of the products!) - but, OH THAT CARD! Pop up cards are always fun and this is one of the best ones I've seen. And this collection of papers works perfectly with the idea! Great job, ladies!

  59. Another two wonderful projects. The pop-up card is just so cute - love the creativity. The layout is just fabulous - despite all the other beyond the page ideas, I am always drawn to layouts because that's primarily what I do as a scrapbooker. Love the distressing, perfect "boy" layout.

  60. I loved your project but your layout is simply divine! I have 2 boys and love the masculine touches even using flowers! Great job!
