Earth Friendly Friday - save those coffee sleeves

Hello Authentique Fans!  JJ here, to share my first Earth Friendly Friday project with you.   Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a Starbucks addiction.  I generally bring my own travel mug with me, but when I forget, I make sure to save the coffee sleeves. 


They have a great texture - I really like the small-scale corrugation for using on scrapbook layouts.  It's a very boy-friendly colour too, and turns out it goes perfectly with the Curiosity collection:


The coffee sleeve adds some depth, so I added foam-dots to some of the sticker Elements to make them stand out more.  Adding height to the Elements I wanted to emphasize, makes the cardboard visually recede a bit (you don't want it to be the first thing you see).


The thick Authentique papers really stand up to distressing, so I like to take advantage of that.


Having a variety of sizes in the sticker elements makes it easy to create embellishment clusters.   I slipped in a little more of the coffee sleeve here, too.


Products Used:
Curiosity "Studious", "Determined", "Learning", "Academic", Details stickers, Elements stickers

Pin-spired Monday: Crayon Art/Library Pocket Mini Album

Today we are starting a new segment here on the blog! You all have shown that you love our "Earth Friendly Friday" segment, so we wanted to try something fun for our Monday posts as well! I give you... "Pin-spired Monday!" All Monday posts here on the Authentique Paper blog from now on will be inspired by projects found on Pinterest! Our design team loves Pinterest, and we cannot wait to bring you great projects with tutorials to make your own pin-spired project every Monday!

For my post today, I have been eyeing a couple of techniques to try on Pinterest. So I thought I would combine them into one really fun project!

Here are a couple of the pins that I had saved for my "pin-spiration." 
Original Pins on Pinterest:
Melted Crayon Art

A few months ago, my mother-in-law (who is a librarian) gave me a huge box of library pockets. I wasn't sure what I would do with them,b ut I said sure, I can stash them and probably come up with a project later! 
A few weeks ago I remembered that I had those library pockets in my craft closet, so I searched "library pocket" on pineterst. Lots of neat ideas popped up, but the album (shown above) really popped out to me. I love to make mini albums, they are one of my favorite things to do when it comes to crafting... but I'm always looking for a new type of mini album to make. 

So I tried the library pocket album and it worked out! I wanted to do a little more to my album to make it unique. I had seen the crayon melting art all over pinterest and wanted to give it a try. I figured that adding it onto the cover would be something different and it would really show off the colors in the papers from the "Curiosity" collection. 


Here are a few simple steps  to make your own!
- You will need about 5 library pockets. Ink the edges to match your paper.
- Cut 2 pieces of cardboard for your front and back cover. I used a piece of a box.
- Measure the height of your library pockets and cut a 6 inch wide strip of paper. Score the piece every half inch.

-Glue your library pockets to each notch on the scored piece of paper. It should look like the first photo when you are finished.
-Glue the front and back cardboard covers to the scored piece of paper. 
-You should now have a book base as shown in the last photo.

- Measure your covers and cut papers to fit. Also cut a 3 inch wide cover for the spine. You will need to score this strip so it will fit over the spine.
-Attach the patterned papers to the front and back, then attach the strip to the spine.
-You should now have a covered album.

-Now it's time to make the crayon art.
-Find crayons that you want to use on your cover. I used crayons that coordinated with my papers.
-Unwrap and glue crayons to your cover. If you use hot glue, make sure you use a low heat setting, if not, the crayons will begin to melt.
-Take a heat gun or hair dryer and blow heat on your crayons. It does not take much heat before the crayons start to melt.
-You can move your album around to get the wax flowing in the direction of your choice.
-Once you have the desired look with your crayon art, let it dry for a few minutes and then you can embellish your album.

I added some flowers, ribbons, and stickers from the Curiosity details sheet to dress my album up a little.

I also added some tags to the inside pockets.

I plan on adding photos later. Since my daughter just started pre-school last week, I haven't had a chance to develop photos yet, but this is going to be my very first "back to school" album for my daughter.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired! Make sure you stop by our Pinterest site and "follow" us!

Earth Friendly Friday: Find those old clothespins and get decorating!


Hey crafty friends...Guiseppa here!  I have really enjoyed finding different items to re purpose.  You can really reuse just about anything around the house...put your creative thinking cap on!  So, as I was digging around my house to see what kind of Earth friendly project I wanted to create, I ran into these clothespins.  I thought to myself...how about some cute refrigerator magnets.  I was sick of looking  at the ugly ones on the side of my refrigerator...ya know, the freebie ones you get in the mail advertising insurance...ugh.  Here's a look at what I did!




I covered one of the sides of the clothespin with patterned paper...the Lively Collection to be exact and decorated all of them making some cute rolled roses, Detail Stickers and twine.  Fun huh?







So, what are you waiting for...start digging in those cupboards and closets and let's see those Earth Friendly projects.  Share with us your creations on Authentique's Facebook Page.  Thanks for stopping by today! 

We also have a winner to announce from our "Peaceful" Giveaway earlier this week! 
First I just think it’s beautiful! But I really like how it’s not the typical winter line, its neutral and elegant I just love it!
Congrats! Please send an email to contests@authentiquepaper.com with your mailing info and "Peaceful Giveaway Winner" in the subject line!

Announcing "Peaceful"

After the long days of summer, winter months bring a calm and peace. To us, there is nothing better than cozying up by the fire after a long day playing in the snow. Our heavy-weight textured paper gives this collection a burlap fabric look and feel, highlighting the sophisticated and vintage-style designs we are best known for. The neutral color-tones deliver a soft, yet useable palette which set this collection apart from most winter-themes available. 


To see images of the Peaceful collection, please visit the products section of our website

A Carefree Mini album

I don't think I will ever tire of the beautiful Carefree Collection.
The colors are so on trend right now but are also very classic.
The "Details" cardstock stickers make projects come together so quickly and easily.
and I love adding little words from the "Elements" Stickers.

I had so much fun making this mini album.
The pages are chipboard and I die cut them using Sizzix dies and my cuttlebug.
I added some ribbon and canvas butterflies from Maya Road to finish off the album


Here's a look


and a closer look at some of the pages.







Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have enjoyed my little mini album!


Before we go today, we have a winner to announce from our blog hop last week with Basically Bare!

So much goodness first thing in the morning. What a great way to wake up every morning with my coffee & some eye candy on the Authenque blog. Really love, love, the owl mini album.

Basically Bare Blog Hop Day 2!

Authentique Paper and Basically Bare are teaming up again today to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Basically Bare products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Basically Bare blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************

Emily Lanham
I love the "Curiosity" collection! I just can't get enough of it! When I was trying to think of a project to make for the Basically Bare hop, I KNEW that I wanted to use Curiosity and my small banners from Basically Bare. So I came up with a little toilet paper roll mini album. My daughter starts pre-school next week so I thought this little album would be darling to store those first day of school photos in! 



As a teacher I know all too well how short summer is. I also know how exciting this time of year is. I love the smell of school supplies, a clean and shiny classroom, and planning for the start of another amazing year. For those very reasons, I love working with Curiosity.
For my first project, I created a little Congrats card for a lovely co-worker who received a teaching accolade. I really wanted to showcase the fantastic Basically Bare flower against all of the wonderful patterns of the Authentique Paper. I left the leaves plain, stamped the larger petal with yellow chalk ink, and lightly misted the smaller with some grey mist.
 My second project uses Basically Bare's mini album. I loved using all of the different textures and materials. I covered the kraft of the owl with Academic, misted the wings and eyes, then used grommets to attach the wings to the body. For the eyes, I drew the pupils and highlights.
Since I don't have a school-ager yet, I just found some fun photos from the past few months before our newest was born. I wanted to make a mini that my little girl could have. I loved adding the Details throughout the album.
I even broke out my stapler with this project. It was fun using school supplies on my crafty endeavors. 

Oh there goes that mouse again...
I just loved the whimsy of Basically Bare's clock set and owl. 
I used a piece from their flower set to create my little mousie friend.
All of the pieces are covered in papers from Authentique's "Lively" collection.


I fell in love with these mustaches from Basically Bare!
I created a little wall hanging with the cardboard page of Oh So Mini Album.  I tore a little off a corner to expose the texture inside the page.
I used lots of Authentique Curiosity, the M is from the "Studious" patterned paper.

Basically Bare Blog Hop Day 1!

Authentique Paper and Basically Bare are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Basically Bare products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Basically Bare blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

********************

With back-to-school in mind, I wanted to create
 a couple of special teacher gifts.  
For the first project,
 CURIOUS OWL NOTEBOOK
I used portions of the Basically Bare Album. 
 On the front, clear cover I hand-stitched a few buttons
 to the bottom, outlining the shape. 
 I also machine stitched around the perimeter
so that the edge would be defined.

For the inner cover, I layered the cardboard sheet and felt scalloped sheet 
together and then embellished with an owl dressed in 
Curiosity patterned papers and stickers.  


  

Next, I took 8.5 x 11 copy paper and trimmed the
sheets down to a 5.5"W X 5.25"H; reserve the scraps.
Line up the papers with the top of the album and punched
holes.  Insert rings and tie on colorful ribbons.

I had one remaining piece of the album left: a canvas sheet.
I just had to use it!  


Take the scrap pieces of copy paper and cut in half
 so that they measure 3.25"H X 5.5"W.
Fold the canvas sheet around the paper to form a pocket;
machine stitch around the edges or glue in place.
Decorate the front as desired and then string
through a length of ribbon and tie at the top to 
create a useful hanger.  You may also attach a magnet
to the back so that it may be hung in that fashion.
********************




I really love the idea of making my embellishments my own.  I did a couple of different things to my Basically Bare Embellies.  I inked the edges, sprayed them with mists, used a texture spray and covered them with patterned paper.  I was able to create several different looks with these Embellies, but tie the whole thing in by using the Fresh and Carefree Collections.
********************

For both cards I used the pages from the mix and match mini album from Basically Bare. I love the chipboard elements! 

For the first card I used the little chipboard house on the acrylic front. 

For this second card I used a page from the mini album again, but I folded it as a file folder so you can put money or a gift card inside the folder.
The red leaves I punched out of stickers from the Lively collection and of course I used the chipboard flowers from Basically Bare.
********************

I made a family door hanger
 with some different Chipboard pieces from Basically Bare
and the Authentique Collection " Enchanted"

For the letter B..
I hand cut it our layering some patterned papers the make the inside to the B pop out.
some glitter glue to give it a finished look.


The Owl I wanted to mix the patterned papers.. adding the word stickers gave it a more
personal touch. I love the variety of stickers that just went so well with this project.


I hope you give it a try.. it was alot of fun to make.. and would make an awesome present.
********************
I made a birthday card paring the "Lively" collection with Basically Bare's dress shapes in felt & canvas.
(The sentiment on this card translates to: "Happy Birthday, my Beautiful Princess")
I customized the shapes with mists and stencils to make them coordinate with the papers, then added a little bit of trim to the 'princess' dress. 

********************
Be sure to check back every day this week for more project inspiration! We have an Authentique Prize Pack to give away to one of our lucky commenters (please leave unique comments!)

An Enchanted Halloween

Good Monday to you!
Shellye here with a couple of Enchanted papercrafting
ideas that will hopefully get you in the mood for Halloween.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again:  the beauty of
Authentique Paper is the durability and texture of the paper
and cardstock stickers.  When you have confidence in a paper
 like Authentique, you can set out to craft just about anything! 

First I'd like to share a trio of letters that I altered by
covering with various patterns of Enchanted, a couple
 of svg files (bats and spider's web),
 cardstock stickers and other fun embellishments.
I purchased the B-O-O wooden letters at Hobby Lobby and
painted the backs and sides with a black acrylic paint.
After tracing and cutting out the shapes from the
Enchanted patterned papers, I applied them to the letters
with a quick dry glue.

I crafted the little pointer sign by attaching Enchanted 
cardstock stickers to a bamboo skewer...just cut a backing
of the same size and apply to the back to hide the stick!
The chipboard pennants by Maya Road were also
painted black and then spelled out CREEPY with
sticker letters from last year's Glowing Collection.

A spider's web just looks prettier in glitter :)  You can
 download the free svg file here.  I also made a rosette,
 which gave a little more color to the heavily black color
scheme that I had going on in that area. For added texture,
 I decided  that my bat fellow needed a couple of black
 pom-poms on his front...fun!

And now for a quick and super-easy tutorial that will come
 in handy when deciding on those clever treats for school
 parties or your most favorite trick-or-treators!

ENCHANTED TREAT CARDS
Depending upon how many of these you'd like to make
and how wide you'd like them to be will decide how
many sheets of your favorite Enchanted paper that
you'll use.  I will give directions for making these in a
Hershey bar size :)

SUPPLIES FOR 4 CARDS:
-1-12x12 sheet Charmed Paper
-Free SVG file for the bats click here
-Spellbound Paper for bats and the back
side for stamping the image on
-Glowing Paper for 3.5" scalloped circle
-Glowing Hours Unity/Authentique Co-Branded Stamp
(you can find that stamp right here!)
-Black ink pad & acrylic block
-Enchanted Sticker Strip
-Buttons and baker's twine (optional)
-Paper trimmer & corner rounding punch

Cut paper into 3x12" strips

Score at 4.5"; fold and machine stitch or glue to form
the pocket.  Add bat to the top of the fold (as shown).
Attach sticker strip just under the bat.  Next, cut the 3.5"
scalloped shape in half and adhere just under the sticker strip.

Stamp image onto back of Spellbound paper.
Trim, corner round edges and attach to front with
foam dots it desired.


You could dress these treat cards up in so
many different and fun ways!  Cut them down a
bit and add a gift card before giving.

I hope that you'll give this project a try :)
Please leave a comment if you have any questions
and I'll get an answer to you as quickly as I can.
Don't just have a Halloween, have an
ENCHANTED HALLOWEEN!

Cards & candy time.....

It's Friday again, so you know what that means! We are ready to give you some recycling tips today!


I started thinking of what I could show you for today... I always like to be on the look out for for things to use for projects. I can use everything, but my family is not always like that! I have a cupboard full of things so I decided to use this...




Today I want to show what you can do with empty packaging.
For my cards, I used the packaging from my tissue tape.


 You have to take carefully the blister off because you will need it!
  

First, you take the outline of your blister and cut it out.
 Take the candy and put it in your blister, after that you place with glue or tape on the inside of your card and back it with paper. For the flowers I used a die this time.

I also made a card for the man of course.....


I'm using the elements stickers here from the "Carefree" collection and papers from the "Fresh" Collection. I love to use the different collections together. 


 Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to show us what you made with our collections on facebook! We love to see what you made!

Products Used: 
Fresh collection: elements and detail stickers
Lively collection: elements and detail stickers
Carefree Collection: element stickers

Earth Friendly Friday: Repurposing Existing Containers


I started my project looking for some kind of box, bag, or container to alter. Then, I looked for anything that I could use for embellishments. I found orange ribbon that had previously adorned a bottle, and I cut the zipper from its fabric to end up with both orange and black "ribbon".

Enchanted was perfect for this project! I really love the fantastic oranges, blacks and creams. Perfect for planning ahead for my grandmas birthday, which just happens to be Halloween.
 I gathered my materials. Both useful and decorative.
 
I started with this container. It's been kicking around my scrap area for three years. It's held pens, markers, wire, all kinds of stuff.
First thing to tackle... Get that sticker off the container. I used my adhesive remover and worked at removing it. It does take awhile, and I had to rip off the sticker, then rub off the paper leftovers, then wipe away the adhesive. Don't give up!
While this pumpkin is cute, it doesn't work with my plan... So, I inked the sticker so that I could cover it easily with my lovely Authentique paper in Haunted. Then I added a super neat diecut pumpkin (also Haunted) that I used 3L dimensional adhesives, and both Gray Flannel and GoldenGlitz inks to make it pop. Added a Maya Road Trinket Pin, and it's perfect!
Using dimensional adhesive is such a great way to make embellishments! I suggest that you try.
For the can itself, I measured the paper (in Glowing) so that it fit inside the can. I actually tried to have it fit the outside, but it was just shy. I didn't want to try to glue it down out and have the paper peel away, so I put it on the inside instead. I just used one Glue Dot to make the paper stay in place. When I returned the handle, it poked two additional holes to help position the paper.
Add the Details cardstock stickers, a Petaloo flower, my found ribbons, and a little gold wire, and voila! New gift packaging!
I challenge you to find something that you have floating around, and repurpose it into something beautiful. Happy Earth Friendly Friday! ~Heather

Authentique Products Used: Enchanted Collection: Glowing & Haunted papers, Details stickers

Authentique 3-D art!!

Hello eveyone, Angie Blom here with some Authentique Art..
just using some of the papers from the Carefree and Festive Collection.

Now wouldn't this be an amazing gift to make..
or some home decor for your own home.

Using the Spellbinders die Anemone Flower Topper,
with Carefree Papers...
these flowers came together easily..
Just perfect for this and any of the Authentique collections.
You will need a thick paper for this to hold up.
It is a good think Authentique's quality of paper is perfect.


I started off with a 6x12 canvas.. layered it with some mod podge and place my background paper.
Using "jovial" paper. lightly painting on some color with some Claudine Hellmuth paints.. these are more transparent paints so you still get to see the background papers.



I added the flowers, the stems were papers from the Festive collection.. "believe" paper
then using the sentiment and decorative stickers to finish it off. With a final coat of mod podge.  


Hope you give this a try.. I am just loving gow 3-D art looks..
adds a different touch to the
walls in your home.

 have a wonderful day
hugs,
Angie
xoxo

Let's Give A Warm Welcome...

We know a lot of you have been asking and waiting patiently, but we have opted to not do an open design team call this fall. However, that does not mean that you won't see an open call in the future! 

We met so many great people at CHA last month, that place was crawling with talent! After seeing the work of JJ Sobey, we have decided to officially add her to our pool of talented designers that make up our Design Team. 

Let's give her a warm welcome! 
My name is JJ Sobey.  I live in Montreal with my husband, our 2 kids, and 3(!) cats. I speak two languages.  I am an unabashed geek and caffeine freak. I have been scrapping for about 6 years, and my kids are the main subjects (though not the only subject) of my work. I have a bit of a scrappy split-personality, as I like to change up my style a little depending on the subject - but there's always ink involved.  Mixed media is my new vice of choice.  Besides Scrapbooking – some of my other addictions are Starbucks, Sushi and loud rock music. But not all at the same time - Peppermint Latte and Spicy Scallops just don't mix. (Green Day is, of course, perfect with either.)

If you haven't seen her work, here are just a few projects that we wanted to share...



Please stop by and visit JJ's blog HERE and show her some love! We are very happy to have her as an addition to our team! 

If you were hoping for a dt call announcement from us, we encourage you to keep checking back and continue to post your wonderful creations on our Facebook page! We love seeing your work and the overwhelming support that we get from our great fans!

The Scrappy Gourmet

If you visit our blog frequently, you will notice that we love to feature those who love our product. We love our retailers and fans so much, that doing a little blog feature is our way of saying "Thanks for the support."  We really do appreciate each and every one of you. Without you, we would not be who we are today. So thank you!

Today we are featuring  a really fun kit company, The Scrappy Gourmet. We ran across their website and saw some darling projects made with our "Glory" and "Blissful" collections, too cute not to share! 


Show your patriotism and your love for the red, white and blue
with Darla Weber's "Celebrate Freedom" mini album. Built on a 4x8 chipboard album and using the "Glory" paper collection, "Celebrate Freedom" has 14 inner pages plus a pocket page. Please visit our gallery under Darla Weber Designs to view all images of this kit.


Here's a delightful little mini album and layout combo kit to celebrate what or who makes you happy. The "Cheerful Girl" 2-page layout comes with all stitching completed to make assembly quick and easy. Pages in the "You Are My Happiness" mini album are precut to eliminate tracing, cutting and sanding! Please visit our gallery under Julie Dittmer Designs to view all images of this kit.  


Make sure you stop by The Scrappy Gourmet's website and pick up these great kits! You can also visit their blog and let them know we sent you over to say hello!
