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!
When I finally decided that I was going to make a mini album for my project this week, I just knew it would come together beautifully! Authentique Paper + Petaloo products are a match made in Heaven! They are always so easy to match the colors up perfectly!
With my project, I really wanted to show off one of our newest products, the Paper-Crafting Assortment kit! It is a new item with the "Lovely
" collection, but since it's been such a big hit, it will also be available in upcoming collections. It's the perfect kit for any type of paper-crafting and is full of product to make several projects! I especially LOVE the die cuts!
Every time I start a project, I always lay out my supplies so I don't have to go on a hunt for them in my craft room. It's always good to have everything the coordinates at hand, even if you don't use it. One batch of supplies that you will always find on my desk when I start a project are my inks from Imagine Crafts
. I absolutely love their Fireworks sprays (especially when using flowers and ribbons that I want to color) and the little dew drops are perfect for distressing our papers, stickers, & die cuts.
When I start my mini albums, I make sure that I pick an album that will fit the die cuts & embellishments that I am using. I am pretty attached to the Tiny Tabs album from Basically Bare
. It is a great little size and makes a nice coffee table book. I always tinker around with the placement of items on my albums before I glue them down, but the cover is the real eye catcher, so I try to make it a little more over the top than the inside pages.
Of coarse none of my albums wouldn't be complete without ribbons from May Arts
& flowers from Petaloo! I love Petaloo flowers because they come in all sizes, the smaller ones are perfect for this size album. They are a nice simple embellishment that add a lot of dazzle to projects.
Here's a peek at the rest of my album including some of the inside pages:
