Want2Scrap A Retro Mini?

Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap are teaming up this week to bring you
 tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap products!

 After you check out the projects on the Authentique Paper blog 
(and leave a comment so that you're eligible for the prize drawing!) 
be sure to head on over to the Want2Scrap blog to find out what the talented members of
 their Design Team have in store for you today!

 This was my first experience working withWANT 2 SCRAPproducts and wow, did I have fun!
I received the "Retro Album" and had a tough time deciding on whether to do a traditional album,
 a banner or home decor.  In the end, I was really wanting to use the "Renew Collection"
by Authentique Paper as I hadn't had the chance to play with all of the cute file folders and punch-outs...
I thought these would best represented in an album.  

 The "Retro Album" comes with five different panels of various shaped corrugated chipboard.
One side is flat and the other side has the fun ridges.  In prepping the album, I inked around the edges of the flat sides with Memento's Tuxedo Black.  On the corrugated sides, I used Color Shine Black Velvet Spritz.  To the fancy ends (flat side only) I painted the areas with a white PITT pen by Faber-Castell.

 To the front cover, I layered a Renew patterned paper with one of the file folders and then 
embellished with a puzzle piece and flowers from Petaloo. Wanting to hide the area where the 
white pen marking met the corrugated board, I added a strip of gingham ribbon and then topped with Mother of Pearl Rhinestones by Want2Scrap.  The sweet little paper bow is from the Etsy
Shop of Curtsey Boutique.

The next two pages feature Authentique's new Hampton Art Stamps and the beautiful flourish of adhesive pearls by Want2Scrap.  I stitched the file folder together so that tags could be tucked inside.

 As you may can tell, I switched the pages around so that two flat sides would be together, 
as well as two corrugated sides...I thought it added even more interest :)  
Again, I used the different punch-out elements for the majority of my embellishments...
when you layer them together with foam you have a whole new look!

I removed the original centers from the Petaloo flowers and added the large  
Mother of Pearl Rhinestones instead.  The Tear Drop Pearls look perfect as the
 center for the punched butterfly!

That's the end of my "Retro Album"...I hope you have the chance to try some of the wonderful  
Want2Scrap products and see how well they work together with Authentique Paper!

Again, to enter your name into the prize-pack-giveway from Authentique, just head over to

I have family and friends in and around the Moore, Oklahoma area and I pray especially
for their community today as they continue to search for loved ones and begin clean-up efforts.
In 1999, one day after the other horrific Moore tornado, De Kalb was hit by an EF3 tornado
that damaged the high school, elementary school and historical buildings of downtown.  
As it was 14 years ago, we are on watch for a severe outbreak of storms today.
We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers...there are never too many!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
