Beautiful Home Decor with "Classique: Beauty"

When this wonderful Silhouette Advent Calendar showed up on my doorstep, I knew that I was going to bypass Christmas with it all together and showcase one of the beautiful new Authentique Paper Collections, Classique Beauty. I really love how all of the gorgeous yellows contrast against the neutral whites and blacks.
To start, I found a bunch of photographs of my two girls and used the app PicFrame to create collages so that I could miniaturize each of the photographs to about 2x2". I then backed each of those with a square cut from the 6x6 Bundle.
The other pieces are various Silhouette cuts, stickers, and die cuts from the 6x12" Components Cardstock Accents.
A few of my favorite cut files: A2 Tabbed Card with Scalloped Sleeve and Light Bulb Frame.
I loved shrinking down all of the envelopes into miniature sizes. By not gluing them shut, you could even add little messages!
By switching all of the photographs from color, to black & white, I was able to make a cohesive collection of my favorite photos.
Aren't those pops of color sweet?! I really loved adding all of the die cuts and Details stickers.
Best part ever, when some of the pictures get a little old, it's going to be super easy to switch them out! I cannot wait to switch up the whole decor piece with the next amazing Authentique Collection!
I hope you get to find some new ways to showcase your Authentique Papers!
Supplies Used:
Authentique Products: Classique: Beauty - 12x12 papers, 6x6 Bundle, 6x12 Components Cardstock Accents, Details 12x12 Cardstock Stickers
Other Supplies: Silhouette Advent Calendar, Silhouette Cuts (Design ID #63015, #46141, #59635, #66796#59628, and a few from the Advent Calendar set.
