Good Morning Authentique Fans!! Heather here with a fun way to use up your Authentic Life Cards in a layout. I really love the Radiant Collection, and when I snapped this fun black and white photo of my girls, I knew that it would shine against the bright colors.
I wanted the sentiments to shine amongst the patterns of this layout, so took a few of my favorite Radiant Collection Authentic Life Cards, and placed them on the top 2/3's of my piece of Whimsical. When I had figured out my exact placement of everything (in accordance to my photo as well), I adhered those to the sheet of Whimsical.
Once that was complete, I took part of a sheet of the Foundation One to back my photo. 
Then I had fun adding bits and pieces from the rest of the collection to add more color and detail. I used a few of the pieces of the Components 6x12" sheet, the Petite Diction and the Petite Type from both Radiant and Harmony. I even sneaked a sticker or two from the Details sheet in there.
I hope this gives you yet another way to use your Authentic Life Cards. Remember to check out both sides of each card for the best sentiment, journal area, or pattern. I did quite a bit of switching around to find just the right pops of color for each section. 

Supplies Used:
Authentique Paper: Radiant Collection (Whimsical, Foundation One, Authentic Life Cards, Details Stickers, Components 6x12" die cuts, Petite Type & Petite Diction)
Authentique Paper: Harmony Collection (Petite Diction)
Other Supplies: adhesive, dimensional adhesive

  13. What a unique layout and love how the life cards worked so well. Great idea, I'd probably use them on cards and in the kids pocket page albums. Makes it so much easier to keep up 4 albums during the summer and they work for all ages.
