Hoppy Easter! From Authentique Paper & Petaloo!

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you some Easter "Treasures" 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!

Create your own chipboard box album to hold this year's Easter memories with the "Treasure" Collection and goodies from Petaloo.

This substantial album is easier to put together than you may think.  First, use any heavy weight chipboard that you have on hand or that can be purchased from an office supply or craft store.

Chipboard pages from another 6X6 album were used as the base pages, but any size and type of chipboard will work. The chipboard sizes for this album are as follows: 3X6, 1.5X6, 6X6, 1.5X6 and 3X6.  The pages were adhered to a sheet of kraft paper, but wrapping paper or other rolled paper could be used.  Leave a margin of the kraft paper so that the edges can be folded over.

Cut pieces of patterned paper 1/4" smaller than the chipboard sections and glue into place.

An album of this size allows for many, many pages of inner goodness.  

On the cover, a scalloped chipboard piece was embellished with punch-outs, ribbon and trim, and flowers that were layered together to form unique blooms.

For the closure, a set of velcro tabs by Tombow were used behind the chipboard flap and on the right-hand side cover of the album.

The inner pages were made up of patterned papers that were cut to create a water-fall effect.

 Holes were punched at the tops of the pages and bound together with a piece of ribbon.  The back page was attached to the inside of the album with high tack adhesive.

Like many of Authentique's paper collections, I enjoy the versatility that they provide based on their flexible designs.  'Treasure' is no exception.  Even though this collection is geared towards Easter--I was able to create a generic layout centered around a family photo taken just this past summer.

Since the photo was taken in the summer & in the woods, I chose the brighter of the papers from the 'Treasure' collection for my page & used several animal themed embellishments such as the mini flocked bunny & birds.

I've titled this layout 'Parade of Memories' based on a cutout from the 'Treasure' collection.

To create the circular background; with a large circle punch I randomly punched circles on some left over scraps from the 'Treasure' collection.  I adhered these punched scraps to my background & with a black fine line Sharpie I traced around the punched circles to make them 'pop' out a bit.

I've used several Petaloo floral products on my layout that accentuated the collection just right.  The burlap of the large green flowers also added a bit of a rustic touch to my page which I wanted.

I've used a bit of Fancy Trim by Petaloo to go along the right & bottom border of my page--you can see the mini pom-pom trim I used in this photo.

I've stored my journaling on a tag that I've tucked inside a small kraft bag behind my photos.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Suga Royal Blue flowers by Petaloo.  The touch of thick frosty glitter that these flowers have give them a very delicate almost 'icy' effect.
