All Natural Layout

   **500th POST GIVEAWAY**
This is post #496...be sure that you are a follower of my blog
as I will be giving away a GRAND PRIZE on the 500th post!
---------------------------------------------------------------
For all of you masculinely-challenged-layout- folks out there
(and I'm in that category...it's a huge challenge for me!) I have a layout featuring
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER'S
Natural Collection
I love that the colors and patterns are masculine, rich and
vibrant; it was the perfect palette for one of my oldest son's Senior photos!



I went with one of the more muted papers for the background and then layered on color with 
various mats, journal card and stickers.  Wooden embellishments like veneers and clothespins
 compliment the masculine style.
I'm drawn to arrows, pointers and stars for guys' layouts, so I fashioned a couple of chevron arrows
 from the Daydream paper.  Here is a pretty easy way to cut several pieces while keeping the 
sides even at the same time.
Fold paper in half, but don't crease too much.

Cut off the end and then cut following pieces at an angle; try to keep the widths about the same as you cut.

Easy, right?!?  You could make a complete background in no time!
Thanks for stopping by the Authentique Paper blog!

Authentique Paper Products: Natural Collection- Native Paper; Beaming Paper; Daydream Paper; Enhancements Paper; Elements Stickers; Thrilling Collection- Element Stickers

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…
