ScrapBooking with Authentique

Whenever I see and touch Authentique's Paper Ranges I think of Joan River's FASHION POLICE: " Gotta Have it? or Make it Stop?" and WE SIMPLY GOTTA HAVE AUTHENTIQUE!  Their sheer quality and absolutely versatility of design inspire me to want to use this product again and again.

I have used the Authentique Strong range below as well as the Ribbons and Rosettes, George and Serenade Cricut cartridges to Scrap this layout of my Precious younger son.  I hope that you find some creative time in your busy lives to Scrap photos of your loved ones, those that make the world a better place to be.

With the off-cuts, I scrapped these two Quick and Easy Cards, just in time for Fathers Day!

One Sketch 2 WAYS!

With the busy lifestyles that most of us lead, we often find it difficult to squeeze in a slice of creative time in between all the other responsibilities that a day brings.  At times like this I love to re-use my favourite page maps or sketches with different papers and embellishments, thereby creating a new scrapbook page with the same satisfying result!

In 'Picture Perfect'  I have used Kaisercraft Paper creating a feminine and elegantly styled layout.
In 'Country Living' I have used Fancypants Designs to create a more outdoorsy page.  Note the use of sucker sticks to create the illusion of a picket fence.

Cardmaking with Doodlebug Designs - Take Note Range

 Well say "it has been a while" is the plain truth.

This past year has seen the Graduation of my Younger Son from High School and my Eldest Son from University, we have celebrated our New Home and we have mourned the passing of a Loved One and time like a thief in the night has robbed me of the opportunity of sharing my creativity with all of you. 


2013 is a new year and at the risk of sounding positively optimistic, has the fresh scent of New Ideas, Creative Spirit and Doodlebug Designs!



Their "Take Note" range inspired the "stationary collector" in me and I had great fun using giant sized paper clips and mini bulldog clips from my stash.

Hope you have just as much "FUN" as I did and don't forget to use your Cuttlebug Folders to Emboss the front of your cards for added subtle texture and dimension.
