Smitten With Top Dog Dies

Friday is the day!
It's the day that I will be sharing my newest creations made with

Today is also the day that Authentique Paper is introducing the Smitten Collection,
which goes perfectly with the dies that I chose to use for this project.
I first cut the album pages from a white chipboard using the Heart Mini Album Die.
Now the fun part:  using the Heart Mini Album Finisher Dies, I was able to quickly
dress the pages in the sweet patterned papers from Smitten.  
The set also includes the adorable scalloped heart shape, which is perfect for layering
and creating a mat for your page. The center doily shape is from the 
Sophie A2 Mat Die Set...I've used this numerous times all it!

Authentique Paper always, always has the cutest stickers to go along with their collections.
Here I tied on a couple of buttons from My Favorite Things...I love buttons!

These cute corrugated silhouettes came from The Curtsey Boutique at Etsy (see link at sidebar).
Could anything be more perfect for an album of love!?!

The glitter butterfly and heart are also from Curtsey Boutique!

This album was very, very quick to complete with the help of these amazing dies!
Each set can be purchased directly from 
Top Dog Dies

Have a grand weekend!

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!)
