Christina's Turn


Today is Christina's turn to show her project and her handmade embellishment!  You're going to love it and the tutorial is great!  I can't wait to give it a shot!  Here, take a look!

Here's what Christina had to say.

I had the opportunity this month to create a project using the beautiful pink/cream/gray line called "Uncommon".  It is from one of the newest paper companies - Authentique - that is headed up by someone you may recognize, Margie Romney-Aslett.  This paper line is a nice thick, lightly textured two-sided cardstock that feels somewhat like water color paper.  I used the paper called "Gifted" for the background, and "Distinct" for the matte.  The paper stamps is from paper called "Rare" and the doodl-ish gray heart border of words is a sizzix die cut from the back of the "Gifted" paper.  The pink strip behind the picture is from the "Foundations" set, which is two 12x12 papers connected together that are basically the solids of the line, though they have some faint print as well.  Come see the Authentique line for yourself - there are several varieties and they have great embellishments!  I'm sure you will fall in love with them all!

This layout is fantastic.  I love the colors, the flowers, the stamps! Thanks, Christina!  

Check back in tomorrow to see how Christina made those awesome flowers - you will be impressed and you'll totally want to grab your supplies and make a few yourself.

Have a great day!
