Authentique Confection Sweet Treats Tutorial

 

Authentique Confection Sweet Treats Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Have you seen the darling new Authentique Confection Collection?  Oh  my goodness!  Is it ever cute!  Today I’m sharing a TRIO of Authentique Confection Creations with you as well as a shaker box tutorial.  Lots of photos and info ahead, so grab a snack and a cuppa and let’s get started!

Authentique Confection Double Waterfall Mini Album with Shaker Box Cover

How sweet is this little 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ double waterfall mini album?  I’ve used an Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Treasures Die (Brillante Rondelle) for the shaker box, then surround it with hot pink buttons that look like candies, Little Birdie Vivid Palette Posies, novelty buttons and pink gingham ribbon.  This would be such a cute way to document a birthday party, wouldn’t it?

The spine is wrapped with satin ribbon.  I’ve hot glued a couple more buttons to the tails, just for fun.

Double Waterfall Mini Album with Shaker Box Cover:  A Peek Inside

Inside, you will find mirror image waterfalls, each measuring 4 1/2″ square.  Confetti style grosgrain ribbon serves as a closure.

TIP: Use scraps of Spectrum Tickled Pink Cardstock  to create little 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4 folios. Top these with images from the collection.

Line the inside with 3″ x 4″ panels of designer paper.

The waterfall will hold sixteen 4″ x 4″ photos.

TIP: Score a 1/2″ flap on the side of a cut apart image.  Adhere behind the designer paper liner to add a fun interactive element to your album.

Double Waterfall Mini Album with Shaker Box Cover: How to Make the Waterfalls

There is no binding system for this album, which makes it very quick and easy to assemble.  Here’s how:

  • First, cut (10) 4 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ panels of Authentique Spectrum Tickled Pink Cardstock.
  • Next, score a 1/2″ flap on the left hand side of each panel.
  • Fold and burnish along the scored line.
  • Now, center and adhere the first flap on the far left hand side of the album base.
  • Then, flip the page open.  Line the folded edge of the next panel up with the bottom edge of the first.  Repeat this until you have added 5 panels to each side.  Keep  everything straight and centered!

The 5th flap (the one on the bottom) will be a little too long.  No worries!  Simple fold the edge back 1 1/2″ .  Now you have a fun double pocket feature on each side of the album!  Line the base page with designer paper.  Then adhere just the sides of that 1 1/2″ flap to the album base to form a pocket on the top.  Then adhere just the top and bottom edge of the waterfall panel to the album base to form a little tag pocket.

Tuck 3″ x 4″ photo mounts and decorated tags into this double pocket feature.

Authentique Confection Project #2:  Gift Card Wallet

The next project is an adorable gift card wallet.  This measures 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ with a 1/2″ spine.  You can make this with one sheet of Hot Fudge Cardstock:

  • First, place the long side of one sheet of Hot Fudge Cardstock against the rail of your scoring tool.
  • Make the first score line at 4 1/2″.
  • Score again at 5″.  This forms the 1/2″ spine.
  • Now score a final time at 9 1/2″.
  • The 1 1/2″ flap becomes the pocket.

Mat the donut image on a scrap of Tickled Pink Cardstock.  Adhere just 3 sides to form a little tag pocket.

Create a couple of cute folios to tuck into the larger pocket.

Use scraps of designer paper to create an inner pocket to hold gift cards, or small sweet treats.

Authentique Confection Project #3: Loaded Envelope with Shaker Frame

Loaded envelopes are so much fun to create!  Adding a shaker frame really makes it feel like a party is about to happen.  For this project, I combined both Authentique Party and Authentique Confection with the Eileen Hull Mailable Frame Die.  Since I share this in the tutorial video below, I won’t go into a lot of detail here.  But i will share the photos.

I had loads of fun creating little goodies to tuck inside this envelope!

This G45 Large Ivory Tag is covered on both sides.  The magnetic folio on the reverse side is a great place to write a little note.

These mixed media tags are made with G45 Square Ivory Laser Cut Tags (retired) and Distress Oxide Inks in  Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio.  Each tag is covered on the back side as well.

Here’s the Eileen Hull Mailable Frame Die again…this time serving as an envelope with a window opening.

And it wouldn’t be a Kathy by Design creation without a little tea, honey stick and vintage silver plate spoon, would it?  I’ve also covered individually wrapped Biscoff Cookies with designer paper.

If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you already know how much I love embellishments.  I first found The Funkie Junkie Boutique because of the wide array of beautiful and affordable metalsembellishments, flowers, ribbons, laces, and buttons that Linda carries in her shop.  If you haven’t checked them out, you really need to!  The photo above shows just a sampling of embellishments that I felt worked well with this Alice Mixed Media Etcetera Tag.

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags with Authentique Romance

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I thought I’d pop in very quickly and share these romantic Valentine Shaker Tags with you today.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s always good to have a little love inspiration on board.

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Paper Photo 01

The romance collection is just perfectly “mushy” for Valentine’s Day.   The base of each tag is  Graphic 45 Regular Kraft Tag.  Just die cut the liners with the G45 Regular Tag die, then add the decorative layers.  Since these come together so quickly,  I thought it would be fun to make a little set of romantic tags….and then I thought…”Why not add a shaker?”  So I did!

Each little shaker pouch is stitched onto a square white doily.  I sew almost all the way around the pouch, fill it with sequins, then put it back on the sewing machine to finish stitching.  It’s the easiest way I’ve found to make a shaker element.  I also die cut a wreath from gold metallic paper.  The image is from the Romance Components Sheet.  Top this off with a Geranium Pink Taffeta Bow and some sweet Little Birdie Flowers.

Flip the tag over to find a ribbon tied sweet surprise.

#G45Tag Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags

Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags #G45Tag

Hello Friends!  Tick tock, tick tock!  Do you hear that sound?  It’s the minutes until Christmas “goes live.”  I created these sweet Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags to share with you today.  I think I can just slip these beauties in under the wire for the #G45Tag Challenge this month.

Last week, I shared some cutie patootie Christmas Magic Tags with you.  So I thought I would give equal time to the elegant styling of The Twelve Days of Christmas with these tags.

Once again, I’ve used G45 Alpha Banner Tags for my base.  These are the Kraft Alpha Banner Tags.

The Graphic 45 Staples Regular Tag and Gears Die makes short work of creating these pretty tags.  Just die cut the base layer, add a border strip from the collection, a small doily, Tag and Pocket, chipboard or sticker and a ribbon adorned mini candy cane.  Easy Peasy!

I think these would make great stocking stuffers.

Or great place cards at your holiday table!

Tags are a great way to use up scraps.  You could even hang these on the tree.

So that’s all for me today!  I just thought you’d like to see these and maybe find inspiration for your own last minute crafting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’m off to bake some cookies!

Cheerio,

kathy
