AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Down by the Sea(side)

Happy Friday! If you haven't already checked out Authentique's newest line Seaside, then you really must! The colors are beautiful (I LOVE that pop of red against the aqua and blues!!), and the patterns work well for tropical (coral and shells!) and non-tropical oceany-type images. I cannot wait to grab a minute and scrap away some of those wonderful beachy memories we made last year.

This is a super fun card that I cut using my Silhouette and their online store. I added some Core'dinations cardstock to create the mermaid. I purchased this cut so long ago, but was waiting for the right paper to show up. The Seaside Collection was the right paper!



I could resist creating a quick, fun layout using one of my favorite Seattle Instagram pictures! Those seagulls pop against the aquas. LOVE!
If you haven't checked out Seaside, check out this post on the Authentique Blog for some more pictures of the fun card. I even put together a really simple matching envelope! The link also has a complete product list.

Let's Do This (October Shop Your Stash Kit)

Some layouts are just too darn fun to not create. This one used the October Shop Your Stash kit that I had made, plus a fun sheet of Teresa Collins paper (no clue what line... I looked, but couldn't find it). I couldn't resist adding it to my layout.
I mean, if you HAVE to get older and get glasses, you might as well scrap about it, right?!?!?

PS... I'm hitting 400 posts (WHAT?!?!?!) on Friday. Check back in for a Giveaway! I'm going to celebrate! Pin It
