Pretty & Pretty Pink Posh

I had a lot of fun pairing up 
Pink Peonies, Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins
with the "Classique: Pretty" Collection by

For both of my cards I chose to use the Authentic Life Cards
as my starting points:
For this card, I drew a large S onto the card and then stitched on the 
Pink Peonies sequins with a needle and thread.  I love to hand-sew, so this little project
was very soothing for me.  You can also add the little seed beads to the
 centers of the sequins while stitching.

I layered two of the stickers together from the Details Sticker Sheet and added 'girl' using
 the letters from the same sticker sheet.  Two black flowers from Petaloo and this card is done!

When working with something like sequins, I look for an area that can easily be
 highlighted with them.  On this journal card, I followed the lacy border design.
 I adhered the Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins with a micro adhesive dot and
then added a small adhesive pearl to the center of each.

Finally, I layered the three stickers together with foam adhesive and added
 a lace bow at the top.
A stick pin by Maya Road completes the card.

I love making pretty, feminine cards...they're even more fun to
dress up with sequins and pearls!

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…
