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.
