Also, I'll have kits available for this FABULUOUS Mini Album featured below.  These will be limited and if you'd like one, you can purchase one right here!  Kit comes with everything you'll need to create the album including full color step by step instructions.  $45 and if you want it shipped $50 

I'm so excited to be sharing my work with you here on the Authentique Blog!  One of my favorite lines by Authentique is the Fabulous line.  It features my favorite colors and the sayings and images are just so on point!  For my Mother who is fabulous and sassy this is the perfect line to celebrate her! I've made a Chunky Mini Album by Pinecone Press, which is 6x6.  I've used all the beautiful papers from the line along with lots of ribbons and some wood embellishments from SA Crafters.
This Cover utilizes the Fabulous Cut out cards paper, elements from the Sticker Sheet, Hand Dyed Ribbon, Wood Glasses from SA Crafters and Flowers and a Crown Charm from my stash.  The Sticker sheets Authentique puts with every collection and really has everything you need to embellish you project!  With Words, tags, sayings, and photos, the Sticker Sheet with every collection is a MUST.  I always use a lot of pop foam as well to make my pages POP!  

 The Album I'm using from Pinecone Press is a Chunky 6x6 Album.  It has a few ways you can put it together which makes it very versatile, and shows off the Fabulous papers wonderfully!  I've cut each of my papers to fit the pull outs on each page of the album.  These have a 6x6 base and a 5x5 Fold out.

Authentiques Papers don't need to much to stand out, but using your leftover strips like I did here on the right, just gives the album that much more interest!  I also use a lot of ribbons, buttons and twine to embellish this darling album.

The photos above show the flap closed and then opened. The left of the album features a pocket to put all those leftover cut out cards from the paper line.  The Wood Hand on the right is also from SA Crafters.  

These pages show off more elements from the Sticker Sheet.  On the left I've made the tags on the sticker sheet into a banner using twine.  The right features a card from the cut out sheet.
The Authentique Fabulous Line is one of my all time favorites and fits the season perfectly!  For any woman you want to celebrate, lift up and inspire, this is your paper line.  I know so many FABULOUS women in my life that are getting something for Mothers Day made with this darling line.  Thanks for taking time to look through my Fabulous Mini Album!  Celebrate the strong wonderful women in your life with something handmade from the Fabulous line!  Daniela Costa
