AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Christmas in July

For today's post, I have a trio of fun Christmas Tags using our Jingle Collection. It was easy to create some wonderfully colorful and fun tags with a few of the 12x12" papers, some stamps, and ribbon ends that I had in my stash. 
The first of the tags that I had was this fun cocoa flavored tag. I paired a sweet little cup of cocoa stamp set from my stash with the wonderful papers from Jingle Three.
The wonderful marshmallows were just too adorable. The adorable Santa image is from the NEW Jingle Elements, die cuts that are pre-punched out for you!
Tags are a great way to use up some of those smaller elements that are just lying around in your stash. In this case, the star has been hanging out in my stash for over a year. Use up those fun little details on tags!
I couldn't resist pairing this wonderful image from the Elements sheet on this tag. The adorable Santa just looked perfect against the marshmallows of Jingle Three.
The second of the trio of tags focused on the wonderfully, vintage Santa from the Jingle Eight cut-apart sheet. The doily behind the Santa was from the reverse of Jingle One. I loved the peek-a-book look of the patterned paper behind the main image.
Again for this tag, I used little scraps of ribbons to create the attachment bows. Don't be afraid of using just small ribbons. By using a tiny attatcher or stapler, you can secure even the smallest of ribbon scraps.
For the last tag, I pulled out one of my absolute favorite Christmas stamp and die sets, Light Parade by Brandi Kincaid. I just love this image of the little girl (there is also a boy). I colored her to mimic one of my own little girls, and paired a non-traditionally Christmas rainbow ribbon scrap with the fun patterns of Jingle Two.
I really loved the little Christmas tree snowglobes from the Jingle Two paper, and the sentiment from the Elements die cut page. The colored image works perfectly with all of the papers.
I hope this inspires you to start your Christmas tag collection going! I cannot wait to add these to my Christmas tag stash, for those extra-special presents!

AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Happy 4th of July from Authentique!!

Happy 4th of July! All of us at Authentique Paper wish America a Happy Birthday. We wanted to wish all of our American friends a Happy 4th of July this week! Before you all go out to celebrate with picnics and fireworks, we have a few patriotic projects to share that have been crafted up with our favorite, patriotic collections!  Remember, as with all Authentique Paper products, we are always Made in the U.S.A.! 

I created a cute banner to go on my mantle for the 4th of July. I really liked the pairing of the stars in the blue paper from the Authentique Heroic Collection, paired with the fabulous red striped paper from the Authentique Freedom Collection. I created the rosettes using my Silhouette Cameo, then hot glued those to bases before adding the letters/sentiments. The stars were just stickers that I purchased just for this project from Hobby Lobby.
Supplies Used: Authentique Heroic Collection, Authentique Freedom Collection, burlap banners pieces, star stickers, Silhouette Cameo, hot glue, Lawn Fawn alpha dies, ribbon
