All you need is Faith, Believe, & Petaloo!

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

Hello fellow Authentique fans!  Kay here with my Petaloo & Authentique project.  I decided to go to my favorite type of craft which is a good ol' fashioned layout.  I enjoy cards, mini albums & altered projects--but my passion still resides with layouts.

For this layout I combined papers from both the 'Believe' & 'Faith' collections.  I also used an assorted amount of Petaloo flowers & trim.

This is my son last Christmas--I loved his little backwards glance in this photo & decided to 'fussy cut' him out of the picture.


I adorned my paper Christmas tree with red Petaloo trim.  The tree is based on the 'folded half circle Christmas tree pattern'.  I found a sample of this pattern on Pinterest.  It's a quick & easy way to create a Christmas tree & it works especially well with double sided paper.  The best part is that it works with any circle size.  Just cut out a circle--cut the circle in half and fold.  The folds do not have to be exact or perfect...based on how you fold the paper you can end up with a thinner or wider tree.



Here's my flower cluster full of Petaloo flowers.  Most of them are from the 'Darjeeling' collection.


This little holly spray is also by Petaloo--I especially loved the burlap string tying the spray together.


For my journaling I created a pocket right onto my layout.  I cut two slits in a 'T' shape that's wide enough to slide in a tag & voila! Instant hidden journaling!

The design of my page is based on a sketch by Page Drafts.  I thought this sketch to be so different & unique & had to give it a go in trying it out.

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!

  8. Wow, when I first looked at your layout I thought it was also made with some fabric. Some of the papers look just like fabric. I love the way you made the tag pop up out of the paper. Wonderful layout. TFS!
