"Thrilling" Trick or Treat Bucket

Hi everyone, it's Audrey, here sharing a fun Halloween project idea with you today featuring our adorable new collection, Thrilling.


Whenever I'm at one of the big box craft stores, I always check out the unfinished wood section for unusual items to alter, like this little wooden bucket. Most stores change their selection out seasonally, so there's always something new and different to see, and I love that the pieces are inexpensive, too. Perfect for creating home decor projects on a budget!

If you've ever tried to cover shaped objects with patterned paper, you may know that it can be a bit difficult to get the paper to lay straight and flat. This bucket may look perfectly cylindrical, but it does taper towards the bottom. Try to wrap paper around an sloping surface, and you'll know what I mean. But I've got an easy tip for dealing with uneven objects like these.

First, paint the entire surface of the bucket with black acrylic paint, both inside and out.

Measure the width of the center space you want to cover in paper and cut a strip of patterned paper to size. Instead of trying to wrap the piece in the one long strip, however, try cutting the strip into smaller pieces, as seen here. The size of the small pieces may depend on the extent of the slope of your wooden object. The more angled the shape, the thinner the paper strips should be. For this bucket, which only has a slight difference from top to bottom, I cut 1.5" strips.

To ensure the paper will stay, adhere the strips with a strong tacky glue. Adhere the first piece, then line up the second, overlapping as necessary to keep each strip straight. Continue to apply strips until the entire surface is covered.

Cut a very thin strip of paper to adhere to the wooden handle. Affix decorative trims to the top and bottom of the bucket.
 Spritz a canvas tag with Tangelo Fireworks spray ink. Add the skeleton postage stamp sticker from the Details sticker sheet to the center of the tag. Since this is a home decor project, and I want the sticker to remain permanently in place, I added a bit of machine stitching across the top and bottom of the sticker to keep it secure.
Lightly swipe a black ink pad around the edges of the tag, and tie the tag to the bucket handle with several trims. Affix a black velvet flower to the center of the bow.

Fill the bucket with your favorite spooky items and top with a flag pick made from an inked coffee stirrer stick dressed up with Halloween sticker banners.

Enjoy!

Creative Crafts with Core'dinations

Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!

There's many things that make me JOYOUS about the Holiday season, one of which are the great Authentique Papers paired with coordinating papers from Core'dinations.  This Holiday ornament can be created using almost any shaped die cutting set or punch, and made for any season by simply changing the paper!
To make this ornament, start by die cutting all your pieces.  For this ornament I used the Spellbinders' Labels 20 set (#6 die, the largest) and cut 24 pieces from all the papers in the Joyous collection along with matching Core'dionations solid cardstock.  You can use less pieces for creating this ornament but it doesn't have the same look, especially if you'd like to create the "honeycomb" look of the alternating layers.

When finished cutting, score and fold all of the pieces lengthwise up the middle of each piece.
Now it's time for putting all the pieces together.  I found it easiest to run all my pieces through a Xyron sticker machine with the pieces folded in half so that the adhesive was only put on one side of each piece (that's all you need!).  If using a tape gun or similar for adding adhesive you only have to add the adhesive on one half of the backside of the ornament- just make sure that it's on the same side for all your pieces.  This saves time and adhesive.

Begin attaching two pieces together as shown above, lining up the decorative edges.  Don't worry if the pieces don't line up exactly along the folded edge of the pieces, it will never be seen!  Continue adding all your pieces from the same side each time until they're all attached.

At this point it's easiest to add in thread, wire, etc to the ornament that you intend to hang it with.  For my ornament I used red wire, which I cut much longer than my ornament so I could add embellishments from the top and bottom.

Once you have your "hanger" in place, close up the ornament by attaching the first and last sides together- simple!
At this point you're ornament is already to go- unless you'd like to give it a more interesting patterned look.  I gave my ornament a "honeycomb" look by attaching two pieces together in the middle, and then at two points (above and below) on the next section.  Alternate these two patterns around your ornament to add some depth and dimension.
To add some bling to the ornament, I used Sheer Shimmer Spritz in gold and sprayed away!  I used the same sized stickers from the Details 12 x 12 sticker sheet to create some fun accents on the top and bottom of the ornament and capped everything off with some crystals from Connie Crystal.

Supplies used:
JOYOUS paper collection from Authentique Paper
Spellbinders:  Nestabilities Labels Twenty die set, Grand Calibur machine
IMAGINE Crafts:  Sheer Shimmer Spritz Gold
crystals from Connie Crystal
red wire from Artistic Wire
Xyron sticker machine

    Hello once again, today's project is an easel card with two drawers as the base.  I've seen several examples of these cards & what varies is the number of drawers the base has.  Some have one, others have four & like the one I decided to go with--some have two.  

    I created this with papers from Core'dinations Whitewash 6x6 card stock bundle & designer paper from Authentique's Sweetness collection.
    The Core'dinations card stock were all dry embossed in my Big Shot & then sanded down to reveal both the design & the core color with the Core'dinations Sand It Gadget. 

    I've used the Lacey Ovals die by Spellbinders to frame my little girl image.
    Here's the card when laying flat or 'closed'.  I went for a very girly--feminine design for this one.  I wanted all the colors to be a soft blue/pink to go with the colors from the Sweetness papers.
    The inside of the drawers are lined with the 'Decadent' paper.  I've used large brads as the knobs for the drawers & a cut out from the Sweetness 'Components' page for the easel card stopper.
    I've put together a brief tutorial on how to create the base for this card.  The measurements for the base of the card is 6 1/16" x 4".

    Let's get started...

    Measurements:

    Base: (2) at 4” x 8 1/16”
    2” x 4” Drawer: (1) 6” x 8”
    4” x 4” Drawer: (1) 8’ x 8”

    Score Measurements:
    Base: Score 1” on both sides for both pieces of card stock
    2” x 4” Drawer: Score at 1” & 2” on all four sides
    4” x 4” Drawer: Score at 1” 2” on all four sides


    Step 1:  Cut out all your card stock & score based on provided measurements
    To create the base--apply adhesive to 1” flaps & connect both pieces of card stock to form a ‘sleeve’.  This is where your drawers will go.

    NOTE: Apply any patterned paper to base prior to adhering the base

    Step 2: Here’s a photo of the base—this part is optional.  I opted to add a bit of chipboard to the top & bottom of the base in order to make it sturdier.  I opted for this since the base is what holds both the drawers & the easel card on top.

    Step 3: To create the drawers—cut out the top two squares on both ends.  Cut into the inner two squares.  Make sure that you do NOT cut out the second set of squares—you’re just cutting into them to create flaps that will be used to assemble the drawer.

    NOTE: Apply patterned paper to drawer prior to adhering



    Step 4: Apply adhesive to the two side flaps.  You will press these down into the horizontal flap seen below the two side flaps.



    Step 5: The flaps have been glued down.  Next apply adhesive to the remaining horizontal side flap & fold in—you’re adhering this horizontal flap on top of the previous two flaps.  NOTE:  Drawer is standing on it’s side for this photo



    Step 6: Here’s what the side of your box should look like when complete.  Repeat steps 4 & 5 on the other side of the drawer.



    Step 7: Here’s the drawer with both sides completed.  To finish it off, apply adhesive to the two end flaps & press in & down.

    Step 8: Your finished drawer!  Repeat steps 3 to 7 for the 4” x 4” drawer.  Once done with the second drawer embellish them with your choice of knobs & just slide them into the 'sleeve' base.

    Adhere card on top & voila!

    Happy creating!

    Cards & Tags with Core'dinations

    Hi there, it's Eva here today sharing some pretty cards created with Authentique papers and Core'dinations card stock.  What fun projects to create!  For me when I think of Core'dinations I always think of embossing and sanding and so that is what I am going to show you today, in case maybe one person hasn't seen that yet...LOL  Anyway, here is my first card to start out with, which I created with the Kraft-Core Shattered Collection and our Seasons: Autumn Collection papers and Petaloo flowers.


    Here is another angle of it.


    And let me show you how I created it.  I basically cut out the sizes I wanted to work with and layers.  My card is a 5.5"x5.5" size.


    I than using Spellbinders M-bossibilites I embossed my blue card stock and sanded it.


    Finally I just glued them together, added my lace, which was from my long time stash waiting to be used and tied around a black twill by May Arts.


    Sometimes I tie my bow right on the card, but sometimes I create the bow and attach it with twine, which is what I did in this case.  It makes my ribbon lay a little nicer, when I do this.


    And next I have another card to share with you, which I created with our Natural Collection paper and Core'dinations Whitewash Collection and this time my embossing folder is by Sizzix.  The pretty heart die is Spellbinders called Lace Hearts, which is a new favorite of mine.  Flowers are by Petaloo once again.

    Here is another angle of my card.


    And at last, I used our newest collection called Glistening, which is perfect for winter creations obviously. I used the Whitewash Core'dinations card stock again, however this time I used the back of the card stock, not the white washed side and embossed it with an older Cuttlebug embossing folder and didn't sand it this time.  It still looks pretty cool


    For this card I used quite a bit of Spellbinders dies, which I will detail out in the Supplies list, but the pretty Poinstettia is one of their dies, too.  Here is a close up of my flower.  So pretty....


    Well, that is it.  Hope you are inspired to grab some Core'dinations papers and get them embossed and sand to create some pretty textures.


    Supplies used:

    Authentique: Natural Collection, Seasons: Autumn, Glistening
    Core'dinations: Kraft-Core Shattered Collection, Whitewash Collection
    Spellbinders: Lace Hearts, Delicate Doilies, Labels Three Nestabilities, Lace Doily Motifs, Layered Poinsettia, A2 Curved Borders One
    Petaloo: Printed Darjeeling, Mixed Textured Mini Blossoms
    Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug, Sizzix
    May Arts:  Twill ribbon

    Good morning Authentique fans, Heather here with a set of fun tags using Authentique and Core'dinations papers. I haven't yet gotten myself a machine that embosses, but that doesn't stop me from using Core'dination's fantastic papers. I love using them with my Silhouette for die cut details. Especially when I want really great distressing. For these tags, I used Core'dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection 6x6 pad. I really love this pad, and have used it often for random projects.
    I wanted to use three collections, and chose to display GlisteningSeasons: Autumn and Thrilling. For the each tag, I use my Silhouette to cut both the tags, as well as the die cut pieces. In this case, I really wanted to show off the distressing on the Kraft-Core papers, so chose not to ink them.

    On the Glistening tag, I cut two snowflakes in contrasting colors, than realized that the blue of the Kraft-Core matched the blue in the Sparkle paper. To make the snowflake stand out, I offset the original snowflake and placed it underneath the blue one.
    Then I finished it off with one of the Components die cuts, and some May Arts ribbon.
    The Seasons: Autumn tag was really fun. I used one of the Silhouette cuts that were free a few weeks ago, and cut the apple, stem and leaf from the Kraft-Core papers. I really love how the apple looks after I used the Sand It Gadget on each of the pieces.
    Pair the apple with one of the fun Enhancements journaling blocks, and a fun burlap alpha, and it just screams Fall!
    Lastly, I created a fun Halloween tag using Thrilling, that will most definitely be a part of my grandma's birthday present, which just happens to be the 31st. I cut a few of the same spiderweb in various sizes, as well as a cute witches cauldron.
    I love the cute October 31 sticker from the Details stickers. Add another May Arts ribbon, and the tag is complete.
    Aren't they fun? I think that the recipients are going to love them as much as I had fun making them.
    Authentique Paper: Glistening-Sparkle, Components, Seasons: Autumn-Autumn, Enhancements, Thrilling-Antidote, Mystic, Details stickers

    A "Thrilling" Album with Art Anthology & Basically Bare

    Authentique Paper is teaming up with Art Anthology&  Basically Bare this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper, Art Anthology, & Basically Bare products!

    After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to hop on over to the Art Anthology blogand then on to the Basically Bare blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Teams have in store for you today!
    ********************

    Hello once again!  Kay here showcasing a Halloween themed mini album made with Authentique's Thrilling Collection in collaboration with Basically Bare & Art Anthology.  Two evenings were dedicated into making this album--I wanted it to have that extra special touch since it's going to be the album that will hold pictures of my son's first Halloween.

    This ring chipboard binder by Basically Bare was perfect for such an occasion.  It's very sturdy, thick & best of all since it's a ring binder it's expandable!  You can add several pages or if you're like me who loves dimension--you can add embellishments that will give your pages some dimension.

    Let's start with the cover...
     The background is primarily part of the Moonlit 12x12 paper from the Thrilling Collection.  I've also cut out an element from the Mystic paper & used items from the Details Sticker page.

    Along the border I've used a stencil by the Crafter's Workshop & a combination of black & orange ink to create the dotted border.  Behind my layering you'll see a bit of green popping out in a circular design.  I created this with the use of a secondary stencil by Crafter's Worship called Mod Spirals.

     Orange twine by May Arts was randomly placed behind all of my elements.  All flowers except for the bright yellow mulberry ones are by Petaloo.  The bright orange flower seen here was originally an off white color.  I spritzed it with the Colorations spray by Art Anthology to change the color to orange & I highlighted the border of the flower with the Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paint also by Art Anthology.  Just use a very thin fine brush to achieve this kind of specific detail.
     To highlight some of the dots that were stenciled as well as some of the dots that are part of the Moonlit paper I just went over them with a bit of Clear Dust Stickles.
     This is the beauty of chipboard--you can punch holes through it!  I used my crop-a-dile to create four holes along the seam of the album.  I then strung several green & orange ribbon through it & a bit of gray tulle.
    Since I plan this album to be full of photos & embellishments with dimension I needed something to keep my binder closed.  So I hot glued a bit of black ribbon to the album itself & then placed the paper on top to further secure it.
     I've barely started & as you can see I already have some bulky elements in there!
    This was my favorite part--decorating the seam of the binder.  I just mixed both the Black Leather Jacket & Frost dimensional paints by Art Anthology in a 'pouncing' motion with two thick paint brushes & then dried it with my heat gun.  The end result was almost a granite looking effect--you can't see it in this photo--but in person there's also a bit of glitter & gleam to it which really adds an even nicer effect!

    Now for the inside...I called this a 'pocket' album for a reason.  Basically all the pages are full of pockets!  :-)  Whether it be one or two or more pockets...point is, there are pockets!  I'm very big on journaling & documenting so I needed several places to store my story & thoughts.
    I have three types of pages.  I have one that is a composition of both a pocket & a flip page.  In this photo you can see an example of one of these pages.  I have pulled out the journaling tag just a bit out of it's pocket--by the way, the journaling tag is an element that I've cut out from the Forewarn paper.
    You turn the page & behind the pocket there's a cover that you flip up revealing another place for a photo & a small pocket.
    This page in turns flips out revealing behind it yet another mat for a photo.  So this one page holds at a minimum four photos, plus a large journaling tag & any additional tags or elements you may want to store in the inner smaller pocket.
    The second type of page this album has also consists of one small pocket & one flip.  The border seen on the right hand side is a small pocket.  
    The top smaller square on the left hand side flips over revealing a secondary place for a photo.  Plus you have the base of the page for more photos & elements.
    This would be the third type of page.  This one does not have pockets!  Gasp!  It's just corrugated cardboard that I've embellished by randomly painting it with both the Black Leather Jacket & Frost dimensional paint by Art Anthology & then spritzing it with a bit of Colorations.

    And there you have it!  One mini album ready to get filled with loads of pictures & journaling for my son's first Halloween!  Enjoy the rest of the week!

    A Traditional Christmas Gift Idea

    Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!


    After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to hop on over to the Core'dinations blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Teams have in store for you today!
    ********************

    Hello! Loes here today to show you how to make a Christmas gift box for a little bottle of wine.


    I used the kraft core from the nostalgic collection by Core'dinations for the base since it's sturdy.

    Cut the cardstock to 11 x 12 inch
    Make score lines at 2.5 inches, 5 inches, 7.5 inches, and 10 inches.
    Turn the paper sideways and make score lines at 1 3/4 inches, 10 inches and 11.5 inches.
    Make diagonal score lines as in the photo below.
    And cut out the little piece with the diagonal stripes.


    First I sanded the kraft cardstock for a distressed look.


    After that I started to decorate the box.
    The pieces I used are 7 3/4 inch x 2 inch and the red dots are 6 inch x 1 3/4 inch.
    Decorate with little pieces of lace and I also used a Sizzix die for the little wreath




    I sanded the little wreath too.
    When the decorating is finished, you can glue it into a box. 
                                            


     At least make two holes in the top and use lace or tulle and tie it closed.

    Take of the label of the wine bottle and make your own
    I used the stamp of last year
                                         

    Now your Christmas gift is ready to give!


    Thanks for joining us today!

    A "Joyous" Layout with Core'dinations

    Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!


    After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to hop on over to the Core'dinations blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Teams have in store for you today!
    ********************

    Hello!  Shellye here today and I must say that I always enjoy working with Core'dinations' products!
    Not only do they coordinate well with any Authentique collection, the quality and ability to sand, tear and distress makes it a top-notch cardstock to reach for.

     For my layout today, I've pulled two of the Core'dinations Neutral 6 X 6 sheets and trimmed them down to 4.25" X 5.5"...why this size?  I was thinking of cascading snowflakes embossed onto the cardstock and of course, my embossing folder just happened to be this size.  Next, I cut matching pieces from the "Classic" Joyous paper and adhered them all onto a 9.5" X 12" piece of black Core'dinations cardstock that was mounted onto a single sheet of 12 X 12 Confection paper.

     After some machine-stitching to the panels of paper, I'm ready to being layering!
    I went with my trusty doily dies and cut out three different shapes from the black cardstock found in the Neutral 6 X 6 pack.  I added a smaller disc of patterned paper to the center of each (and I used the 6 X 6 paper bundle for this).  I determined placement of the doilies, along with my photos and set them in place.

    Finally, the embellishments!  I added some pretty Petaloo poinsettias, gold buttons and a few punch-out pieces from the Joyous Collection

    I really love the homespun feel of this design and how the juxtaposed panels of snowflakes truly give motion to the page.  If you decide to use a Core'dinations cardstock with a core, you could easily transform the look of your embossed design by lightly sanding over the raised areas!


    Authentique Products: Joyous Collection- Classic Paper; Confection Paper; 6 X 6 Bundle; Details Stickers; Statements Accent Sheet; Thrilling Collection- Elements Stickers

    Core'dinations Products: 6 X 6 Neutrals Cardstock Pack; 12 X 12 Ebony & Ivory Paper Pad

    Hi everyone, Audrey here, sharing a fun sweet treat pocket pouch project idea using Authentique's adorable Joyous holiday collection and cardstock from our fabulous product partner this week, Core'dinations.


     I love pretty packages at the holidays, and I'm always looking for new and different ways to wrap up gifts. These fun pocket pouch treat holders are great for home-baked goods or sweets, or any number of small gift items.


     Best thing is, you can adapt the size of the pocket to hold larger, or even smaller items easily.

    Here's how to get started.


     For each pouch, cut two pieces of kraft wrapping paper to the desired size. My pouches are 5" squares. Lay the two pieces together and zig zag stitch around the very outermost edges on three sides. Fill pocket with treats.

    Cut a 4.5" square panel of patterned paper and layer onto a 4.75" square of Core'dination Pearlescent Cardstock. Stitch around the edges and adhere panel to the kraft pocket using strong adhesive. Clip top of pocket closed with a binder clip.

    Emboss ColorCore Cardstock with a candy stripe embossing folder. Lightly sand the cardstock and swipe with white ink. Die cut or hand cut banner flags from patterned paper and the ColorCore Cardstock.


    Adhere banners to the top of the pocket pouch. Wrap the top of the pocket with your favorite ribbon. Layer die cuts from the 12x12 Statements sheet and the Circles & Scallops sheet and adhere to the pocket using foam adhesive for dimension.


    Add buttons and bows to finish things off.


    Once you've got the technique down, you can make these fun pocket pouches in any size, for any theme or occasion! Enjoy!

    "Thrilling" Artful Binders with Art Anthology & Basically Bare

    Authentique Paper is teaming up with Art Anthology&  Basically Bare this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper, Art Anthology, & Basically Bare products!

    After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to hop on over to the Art Anthology blogand then on to the Basically Bare blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Teams have in store for you today!

    ********************
    Heather Conklin
    Good Morning, Heather here with a fun decorative Artful Binder from Basically Bare.
    For this project, I really wanted the papers to seamlessly go with the binder, so started my project by spraying the binder's cover with Art Anthology Colorations Color Spray in Focus.  
    While this dried, I started working on my pages. The day before, I had covered pieces of Frenzy and Forewarn papers from the Thrilling Collection using The Crafter's Workshop stencils in Ledger TCW267 and Wood grain TCW236. For the woodgrain, I used the Black Leather Jacket, and for the ledger stencil, Outrageous Orange. They were really easy to use, place the stencil on the paper, then wipe the thick paint over the top. To make the paint thicker, just use a piece of paper to scrape it all into the stencils' negative space, or dab thicker.

    I then cut the pieces of dried paper down to the size that I wanted (just smaller than the binder cover), and used my Xyron 9" Creative Station to make the paper have adhesive all over the back. This way, it wouldn't come off of the binder.
    Once my cover pages were adhered, I added the edge to the binder. To make this really work, I adhered the back, then used the back of a pen to push the paper into the folded parts of the binder.
    It's hard to see, but there is a dip where the fold of the binder goes. This way, when the binder opens and closes, it won't take off the paper with it.
    I then used my Silhouette to cut an intricate frame out, used my Xyron 9" Creative Station to adhere it, flipping the center of the frame to show off the swiss dot pattern on the reverse of the Foundations paper.
    Once this was all complete, I painted the outside of the frame using the Dimensional Crystal glaze by Art Anthology in Blizzard. This really gave the frame a weathered look. I added all of my embellishments, then added a thin line of dots using the Dimensional Glaze on the inside of the frame.
    I really liked how the Dimensional Crystal Glaze mimics the ZVA pearl flourish that I also used.
     The Petaloo flowers also gave the binder some dimension.
    I left space on the cover for a title for when I figure out what to do with the binder.
    Isn't that ledger detail so fun?

    More "Thrilling" fun, this time creating an album using one of Basically Bare's binders.  I chose the "Moonlit" paper as a background because I thought that the Basically Bare Just Chippy Happy Little Houses and Happy Little Trees sets would make simple, silhouetted background for the trick-or-treater featured on the "Moonlit" paper.  Below are the instructions for creating this album.
    Start by laying down the Basically Bare chipboard houses and one of the tree bases onto the bottom printed border of the "Moonlit" paper.  Fussy cut above the printed border so that the chipboard pieces can be tucked under the pattern to give a more finished look.
    Cover the chipboard pieces with some of the "Thrilling" papers.  For my pieces I used the "Antidote" plaid (left), the amazing skull pattern from the "Superstition" paper (middle) and the printed script from the "Frenzy" paper (right).  I personally found it easier to adhere my chipboard onto the papers and then use the edge of the pieces to cut them with an x-acto knife.
    Spray a sheet of "Moonlit" and "Antidote" papers with Art Anthology's Honey Bee Colorations Spray to add some orange to the cover of the book.  Once the papers have dried, adhere the "Moonlit" paper to the front and "Antidote" on the back cover.  "Frenzy" was trimmed to size and then adhered to the spine of the book.

    After adhering my houses and tree bases (after tucking them under the "Moonlit" paper I began adding embellishments from the "Details" 12?x12? sticker sheet.  Before placing them onto the cover I edged them with Memento Tuxedo Black (using an InkBlusher) to give the embellishments a finished look.  To complete the book I added some May Arts ribbon under the Magic In The Night detail sticker and to the spine of the book.


    Supplies Used
    Authentique Paper: "Thrilling" paper collection
    Basically Bare: 9?x6? Artful Binder, Happy Little Trees and Happy Little Houses Just Chippy sets,
    Art Anthology: Honey Bee Colorations Spray
    IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko:  Memento dye ink in Tuxedo Black, InkBlushers
    May Arts: ribbons

    Hi there Loes here today with a mini album from Basically Bare.



     When I saw this mini album I knew exactly what I wanted to create... an masculine mini with the photo's of our middle son.


    I painted the corners of the pages and used paint from Art Anthology together with the sheets of  The Crafter's Workshop for the designs on the pages, so my hands were very dirty after I finished this project.



     What I love about this mini album is the different texture of every page! You have kraft, chipboard, corrugated cardboard, and a canvas page all in one album!


    For those of you who have seen my work in the past, you know that I love to work with the paper collections and use them for other themes than what they where designed for....
    So this time, I used the "Thrilling" collection for this mini album about our son.


    I couldn't resist using the detail stickers of the "Be(you)tiful" collection together with the "Thrilling" collection


     Also, I distressed every piece of paper that I used on each page.


    The text you see on the right page is also made with a stencil from The Crafter's workshop.


    Thanx for stopping by!
    Loes de Groot
    Products Used:
    Authentique: Thrilling collection 12 x 12 papers, 6x6 bundle,detail stickers, Be(you)tiful collection detail stickers

    More Thrilling with Art Anthology & Basically Bare

    Authentique Paper is teaming up with Art Anthology&  Basically Bare this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper, Art Anthology, & Basically Bare products!

    Eva Dobilas

    Hello, this is Eva and today I have a fun album to share with you that one can add all their favorite Halloween memories.

    My album is by Basically Bare chipboard album.  I used our Thrilling Collection, I used Art Anthologies paints along with The Crafter's Worskhop stencil.


    So let me show you how I created the cover of this album.  I first covered the album with two of the Thrilling Collection papers, than I laid the stencil on top of it and using my fingers I painted on the Art Anthology Sorbet and Velvet Dimensional paints.


    When I finished, I lifted my stencil and dried the pain using my heat gun.  These paints are super fun and dry quick as well.  Once I did that, I tied a black twill May Arts Ribbon along with an orange twine around the front cover.


    Using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies I cut a black label, which I layered my sentiment sticker.


    Than I started adding more stickers and the focal point was cut out from the Mystic paper.  I adore this paper with all the pretty vintage Halloween images.  I added quite a bit of Petaloo flowers on my album and finally I decided to spray part of my album with Art Anthology's Colorations - Color Spray in Raider color.


    You can see the spray a little closer on this photo.  It was a perfect addition to the halloween album.


     Well, here is another look of the finished album cover.


    Sure hope you like this little album cover and run with the idea of creating a halloween album with all the pictures you might have or about to take this year.

    Supplies used:

    Authentique:  Thrilling Collection
    Basically Bare: Album
    Art Anthology: Sorbet Dimensional Paint - Black Leather Jacket, Velvet Dimensional Paint  - Outrageous Orange, Colorations Color Spray - Raider
    The Crafter's Workshop:  Stacked Triangles
    Spellbinders:  Radiant Rectangles dies
    Petaloo: Floradoodles Mixed Blooms - Sienna, Mixed Textured Blossoms - Black
    May Arts: Black twill ribbon, Orange twine

    When I received the product for this swap and saw the "Mayan Gold" Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology, I knew that I wanted to create a full moon as a backdrop for a Halloween collage.  At first I didn't know how well or how much the paint would cover the Thrilling paper, but it worked out even better than I had hoped!

     To begin, I started with a 10X10 canvas frame.  Using the Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paint by Art Anthology, I painted the sides and about a 1" perimeter on the front of the canvas.  The paint
    provides great coverage and has a hint of sparkle too it.

    For the moon, I cut a 7.5" circle from the Antidote patterned paper and then painted on one layer of Mayan Road Dimensional Paint.  After the piece was completely dry, I adhered it to the same size chipboard and then machine-stitched around the perimeter.  Next, I gave a light spray to the moon using the Raider Colorations Spray.  Before attaching to the prepared canvas, I glued on a trim of golden yellow pom pom trim by May Arts.  

    After adding the layers of cut-out papers and the cute Halloween motif, I attached a "happy" banner using Basically Bare's chipboard banners that I covered in Frenzy paper.  The sticker letters are also from the Thrilling Collection. 

    To the top, the sticker alone just wasn't enough so I added one of the black chipboard pieces from Basically Bare's Jailer Keys set.  A little turquoise straw picks up the blue in the postcard picture and a nice ribbon bow completes the collage.


    Authentique Products: Thrilling Collection- Mystic Paper; Antidote Paper; 6x6 Bundle; Details Stickers and Elements Stickers
    Basically Bare Products: Jailer Keys Chipboard; Pennants Chipboard


    Art Anthology Products: Mayan Gold and Black Leather Jacket Dimensional Paints; Raider Colorations Spray
