Life is Beautiful with Utopia & Petaloo!

Authentique Paper and Petal are teaming up over the next week to bring you some amazing inspiration featuring our newest collections along with Petal 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!



I must admit, I have slacked a little lately and don't always get to get crafty right away with the newest collections. However, when Authentique Paper joins forces with Petaloo, who wouldn't want to dive in and get creative?! 

My husband and I went on a much needed cruise/tropical getaway this past January, so I have tons of beautiful photos that need to be on display! I could put them in frames, but there are some photos that I would rather jazz up... and use my pretty paper and embellishments with! 


When I first laid eyes on the "Utopia" collection, I knew that this was MY collection. I feel that it was created for me (probably not, but I like to think so). I am a huge fan of anything bright & summery. Anything that will take my mind on a journey when I look at it, and this definitely does!

I had this wood plaque in my alterable items drawer for a while, saving it for the right project. This was it. 



This is one of my favorite photos taken on the trip. It was taken in Grand Cayman. If you've never been, I can just say this photo doesn't even do the place justice. Pairing this photo with the "Utopia" collection just works.  From the descriptions on the Details sticker sheet to the cute little cutouts on the Components sheet. 



What project wouldn't be complete without adding some beautiful Petaloo flowers? These are by far my favorite flowers to work with. They always match our products so perfectly, as if they were made for one another!
