As soon as the Authentique "Grace" collection arrived in the mail, I could not wait to get started on my projects. The flower pattern immediately reminded me of this picture of me as a little girl, beaming with pride in my big girl bed! I added embellishment using lace tape, an envelope adorned with patterned paper, twine, crochet flowers, and buttons. The salmon and brown are Core Color cardstock found at Scrapdoodles. All remaining cardstock is Bazzill, also sold at the store.
The envelope includes a journal block easily accessible via the button tab. I also added buttons to the center of each crochet flower using glue dots.
For my second layout, I used the cardstock stickers from this collection to create various "titles" that allow your eye to travel around the page. I love these pictures of my little ones as babies. They just seemed perfect for the titles "mommy's girl and mommy's boy." I again used lace tape, buttons from my stash, and foam squares to raise various elements of the page.
For this journal block, I covered the envelope Cheryl mailed my buttons and twine in and embellished with a cardstock sticker from the Grace collection. The envelope was a small mailing envelope, I believe in using all scraps and materials!
My last project is a card I quickly created using a cardstock sticker, leftover twine, and buttons. I love the vintage feel this collection added to this card.
I hope these layouts provide you with some inspiration! Stop by the store to see these layouts in person, they will be arriving in the next few days!
