Authentique - Festive Collection

This is my favorite time of the year, I love the Christmas Season and of course I love the papers that go with it!!  I would like to share some projects I made using Authentiques Festive Collection.  I had such fun making these two layouts, I plan on using them with holiday photos this year!  For this fist layout I used a couple of Tim Holtz dies, the medium tag die and his new 3-D star die.  Then just some of the Festive paper and stickers.  I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to shade all the edges of my paper pieces.

For my second layout I used the Tim Holtz medium tag die, carved ornaments #2 and the noel insert die.  I also used one of the Picot Edge Circles die from Spellbinder.  In addition to the dies, I also used Studio Calico's Wood Veneer Snowflakes.  All of the paper and stickers were from the Festive Collection, minus the basic cardstock.

Now for the next project, I made a countdown calendar.  This project is something I will use for years to come.  I used the Dimensional Sign Board from Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts.  If you have never used Art Parts, I would really encourage you to do so, they are completely alterable.  You can paint, stain, stamp, cover with paper & fabric as well as many other mediums.  We have many styles to chose from at The Scrapbooking Studio.  I chose to cover mine with some scrapbook paper and stamp with Tim Holtz's Season's Silhouettes Stamp Set with a little walnut stain ink.  The hardware is Tim's Holtz and all the paper and stickers are from the Festive Collection.

For my final project, I made a simple card using the Festive Collection.  I accented with a Studio Calico Snowflake and some Glossy Accents on the "Wish" sticker.
These projects and many more will be on display at The Scrapbooking Studio.

Woodland Park

I just don't know where the time has gone, my daughter is officially 19 now.  I would like to share with you a quick card I made using the October Afternoon's Woodland Park Collection.  This line has a semi eclectic vintage feel to it, and it worked out great for Megan's birthday card. I also used some Maya Road Wood Veneers on the outside and inside of the card. A polaroid, heart and arrow is on the inside along with more cloud paper.  I just distress the edges a little and used some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink just a bit.

For The Record 2-Documented Part 2

I'd like to share the last two projects I finished using Echo Parks - For The Record 2 - Documented.  I started out with a plain paper mache box.  I painted it black, then covered with scrapbook paper.  I used Maya Road small wooden spools for the feet.  Of course it would not be complete without a little Tim Holtz.  I used a Cash Key, Pen Nib and Baubles.  I drilled a hole in the Pen Nib using the Tim Holtz Drill Punch (really easy to work with).

I made a small accordion folding album to fit inside the box.

I accented using Glossy Accents on the stickers to give a 3D effect.

Echo Park For The Record 2 - Documented

Hi, Bobbi here just wanting to share a couple of layouts I did with Echo Park For The Record 2 - Documented.  I loved the blues, greens and yellows in this collection.  This collection has a very vintage feel.  I used some Studio Calico Wood Veneers and Maya Road Trinket Pins as accents.  I also used a distressing tool and a bone folder on the edges of my paper to achieve that worn look, then followed up with some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the edges.  I will have 2 more projects to share in a couple of days :)
