Love My Tapes + Peaceful!

Yes, Thursday was a busy day!  
I'm so crazy about this little mini that I made up for the 
(Click the logo to go to Authentique Blog :)

For my mini album, I started with  Authentique's Peaceful and
layers of Lace Dies by Lifestyle Crafts.  Although Peaceful
 doesn't  have a hint of blue throughout the collection, I
 added a mix of blue Washi Tape #001 by Love My Tapes,
as well as a few felt snowflakes from my stash...I think
 that it turned out to be quite lovely!
 I created the banner by folding strips of the washi over a length of baker's twine
and then trimmed the ends with pinking sheers.
 I used a border of Washi Tape #383 (black/white chevron) on page 2 and
covered a chipboard bird (page 3) in the blue washi tape.
 A couple of fun pages using Peaceful!  If you love snow and have lots of snow 
to love, then you must have Peaceful...must :)

A little tab created with washi tape on page 6 and again,
borders of washi on page 7.
I love that mini albums are a canvas for special occasions
or events in your life!  I can just picture this one filled
with the first-snow-of-the-season photos!
Products Used:
Authentique: Festive- freeze, frost, cozy, chill and solitude papers;
 Details 12x12 stickers; Elements 12x8 stickers.
Love My Tapes: Washi Tape #001 and #383

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
