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

Other Products: May Arts- twine; Canvas Corp- clothespin; Studio Calico- wood veneers

Glad to see you again today...at this rate, we'll be at 500 posts pretty quick LOL

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

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.
