Authentique Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album

Authentique Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album : Valentine’s Day Week on the Authentique Blog

Hello, Friends!  Don’t you just love Valentine’s Day?  I’m helping my Authentique Paper teammates celebrate this sweet holiday with this Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album.  It’s my inspiration piece for Valentine’s Day Week over on the Authentique Blog.  You’ll want to be sure to check the blog out today, Wednesday and Friday as we will have special Valentine’s Day treats for you!

Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album

Authentique Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album Reneabouquets Lacy Heart Shaker Frame by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

While cleaning out the Closet of Shame, I ran across this adorable 5″ x 4 1/4″ chipboard and canvas album from Maya Road.  I have no idea when or where I purchased it…or perhaps it was a gift.  But as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to pair it up with the Authentique Love Notes Collection.    First, I  wrapped the canvas cover with Pink Zebra Ribbon to serve as the closure. Next, I layered designer paper onto the canvas cover, leaving a 1/4″ margin all the way around the perimeter.  Then, I created a layered panel for my fussy cut focal image, added some velvet heart brads and a few teeny tiny embellishments.  Finally,  I heat embossed the Reneabouquets heart frame with Wow Vintage Pink Embossing Glitter and created the shaker element.

TIP:  When you can’t spread out, go up.  This small cover didn’t give me a lot of room for extra layers and images.  But I still created a sense of depth and dimension by adding chipboard and foam tape to the back of the elements.  Also, try fussy cutting the elements when you are creating a focal image for a small space.  The 3″ x 4″ image card looked awkward on this cover.  But once it was fussy cut, it fit perfectly.

Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album: The Spine Treatment

You wouldn’t think that this wide, bold ribbon would work with this itty bitty album, but it does!  I love the way it looks wrapped around the spine.  Tie a simple square knot at the top.  Then attach bangles with a looped safety pin.  Top with a cluster of flowers, and you are good to go!

Love Notes Itty Bitty Mini Album:  A Peek Inside

Because I have prepared a video tour for you, I won’t share a lot of details about the album here.  You can just look at the pictures and then go watch the video for tips and tricks.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use to help make your Valentine’s Day extra special!  If so I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.  You’ll find a linked supply list at the bottom of this post.

Wishing you all a sweet day filled with love…and maybe some chocolate!

I’m in Love…I’m All Shook Up Love Notes Shaker Box

Authentique Love Notes Shaker Box Reneabouquets Romance and Roses Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

I’m in Love…I’m All Shook Up Love Notes Shaker Box for Valentine’s Day

Hello, Friends?  Got Chocolate?  Well, we might find some tucked in side this Love Notes Shaker Box project!  I’ve used Authentique Paper’s darling Love Notes Collection with a Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board Chipboard Frame to create this shabby chic beauty.  It’s a match made in heaven!

Love Notes Shaker Box: The Shaker Frame

The box folio measures just 5″ x 5″ with 1″ spines.  So the Reneabouquets Romance and Roses Printed Beautiful Board Frame was the perfect size to turn into a shaker top.  Here’s how I did it:

  • First, trace around the outside of the beautiful board frame onto a piece of clear cardstock.
  • Next, cut the traced image out, cutting inside the traced line so that it will fit perfectly behind the frame.
  • Now repeat this step, tracing onto the Love Notes Two pattern.
  • Adhere the clear cardstock to the back of the frame with Dries Clear Adhesive.  Use a baby wipe or damp paper towel to clean up any spillover.
  • Now die cut a doily to fit behind the heart frame.  I used the middle doily from the Heartfelt Creations Rounded Window Frame Die.
  • Place the Love Notes heart on the box card cover.  Fill the center with the shaker mix.
  • Back the heart frame with 3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips.  Then align over the sequin mix and press in place.

Add a  little sparkle to the ribbons on the heart with Diamond Stickles. Then add pink flowers, Garden Rose Ribbon, a vintage button and White Iridescent Metallic String to finish off the cover.

Love Notes Shaker Box: A Peek Inside

The inside of a card is just as much fun to create as the outside.  Add a box pocket, fill it with goodies and decorate it with a sticker from the Love Notes Collection.  Then create a sweet little folio on the top half of the card and tie it shut with a bit of pretty pink ribbon.

Look how cute it is!

And you’ll be voted “Best Valentine Ever” when you present this array of Valentine treats!  Dress a tea bag up inside a cute little wallet.  Wrap a cookie pack with designer paper and add a sticker.  Make a mini card, add a honey stick and a vintage silver plate spoon for extra fun.  And it just wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a bit of chocolate!  Yum!

Peacock Paisley Shaker Card: Creating the Shaker Element

Bright yellow Delightful Daisy blossoms adorn this  5″ x 7″ top fold shaker card.

TIP: Navy ribbon and buttons anchor all the light colors in this card design.  Contrasting light and dark shades makes a card pop!

To make this card:

  • Mat a panel of the green daisy border print on slightly larger panels of navy cardstock, white cardstock, and navy designer paper.
  • Next, die cut the Intricate Swirls Frame.  Use a craft knife and a ruler to cut out the center portion of the frame.
  • Now adhere clear cardstock cut to fit to the back of the frame.
  • Next, back the solid sides of the frame with 3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips to form a shaker box.
  • Then fill the center of the daisy border print with a mix of sequins, pearls, buttons and beads.
  • Carefully align the frame over the panel and press to adhere.
Peacock Paisley Shaker Card: Delightful Daisies

Here’s how to create these cheery blossoms:

  • First stamp several sets of the Delightful Daisies onto Deluxe Cardstock with Sap Green Archival Ink.  Heat Emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Next, stamp the Delightful Daisy Leaves with Olive Archival Ink and heat emboss.
  • Now, stamp a large leaf cluster from the Leafy Accents with Olive Ink and heat emboss.
  • On a non-stick craft sheet or other non-porous surface, swipe the following Distress Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed.
  • Now, spritz the ink until little beads or droplets form.
  • Swipe the stamped and embossed daisies through the inky puddles.  Heat Dry.  The embossed areas will pop back through the ink as you dry them.
  • Next, die cut with the matching Delightful Daisies Die.  Then shape the layers with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.
  • For the leaves, follow the same procedure, but use Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  Shape the leaf cluster  with the 3D Leafy Accents Shaping Mold.
  • Fill the centers with Czech Beads and set aside to dry.
  • Arrange as seen in the photo.
Peacock Paisley Shaker Card: Finishing Details

Cut a tag from the paper collection and adhere to the side of the card.  Top with a daisy, leaf and bow.  Type the phrase on paper and adhere to the tag.

Peacock Paisley Shaker Card: A Peek Inside

Add pockets to the inside of the card and fill with lovely little treats.  Die cut the doily from the Rounded Window Frame Die.  Fold in half and adhere to form a little chocolate pocket.

A simple bookmark and a card front fill one pocket.

Wrap a tea bag and a cookie  up in designer paper to add extra sweetness to the card.  Add a vintage silver plate teaspoon to turn a card into a gift!

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card

Ciao Bella Time for Home Winter Blues Shaker Card Reneabouquets snowflake frame by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a Ciao Bella Time for Home  Shaker Card that is sure to chase away your winter blues!  The image inside the shaker frame reminds me so much of the home I grew up in.  Our house was situated in exactly the same spot as the one pictured here.    Living in Vermont, the streetlights came on around 3:30 in the afternoon during the winter months. The snow would glow with soft blue shades as the winter darkness closed in. And climbing that long icy hill in the dreary month of January was no picnic!  But there would be a hot cuppa, and a still-warm slice of Mom’s homemade bread waiting for me.  That promise of warmth and comfort kept me putting my feet one in front of the other as I trudged along past mammoth sized snowbanks, surrounded by the solitude that only winter provides.

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card: The Details

I’ve adorned this 5 1/2″ square card with lovely triple loop bow tied from grey plaid Really Reasonable Ribbon.  White Iridescent Metallic String adds a subtle shimmer to the bow cluster as well.   Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves , flowers, pearls and a lovely snowflake frame add winter beauty to the card design.

TIP:  Adhere the shaker frame on the diagonal to create this pleasing diamond shape.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card is very simply lined with more of the beautiful papers from this collection.  I created a small tea bag pocket and tucked in a fussy cut tag from the collection to complete the card design.

I have warm memories of my childhood home, but I must confess to you, I’m awfully glad to have married a Southern boy!  I find our North Carolina winters a LOT easier to endure than the ones from my childhood!

I hope I shared a some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Stay cozy!

Cheerio,

kathy
