Since my original plan for this blog was to share my passion for scrapbooking, then maybe it’s time for me to post a layout. I was thrilled last week when I laid my eyes….and hands…on the gorgeous new collection by Margie Romney-Aslett called Authentique Paper. Gosh, these papers are lovely to work with, and I did a two-page display layout for my local store Scrap-A-Lot with the “Blissful” line…isn’t that the nicest name?
Honestly, these papers design themselves! Normally, I’m not a big fan of yellow, but Margie’s patterned papers in this palette are truly stunning. I kept the layout quite simple…which is a big accomplishment for me! hee hee!
|Cut out these flowers from the paper and added a black ribbon border…|
|The bird cage is also cut from the paper, and I placed a Prima black bling flourish behind.
The edges of the background papers are punched with a Martha Stewart border and corner punch.
|I inked all the edges with Color Box Charcoal Chalk Ink and added the black Twiddley Bitz chipboard accents…|
I wanted to create a layout to remind my children that they mean the world to me, and thus the title “I Love You” with the Tiny Alpha stickers. These collections come with the most adorable tiny alphas, die cuts, title tags and “Diction” stickers (those are the words I placed beside each photo to describe my kids…luckily I was in a good mood that day!).
And the BEST news is…there are two more lines: a pink collection called “Uncommon” and a blue collection called “Journey.” They are just as lovely as “Blissful.”

Hmmmmm…I feel another shopping trip coming on 🙂
