I'm actually happy that I was able to go through my stash of supplies to finish the book. My creation is based loosely on the instructions we were sent home with. I was able to "make it my own".
I made a flower for the cover using crepe paper in black and yellow. I then added a mini rose in the center from My Moments. The trinket pin is from Maya Road. I added some gems from Hero Arts.
I used paper lace under the sentiment on the left page and Hero Arts gems on both pages. All the photo mats were cut using Sizzix Framelits scalloped squares.
I just used some scrap cardstock I had laying around for all the mats. I ran the flower on the left through my crimper.
All the sentiments and images were diecuts that came in the kit with all the beautiful papers. I used Hero Arts flowers on the left page and added some vintage buttons. One of the neat things about Authentique is that there is a quote on the bottom of their cardstock. I used the quote above from Leo Tolstoy on my page.
I used my EK Success binding edge punch on a scrap for the page on the right. I also used some Tim Holtz trim below the photo mat and added some Hero Arts gems.
I'm so glad I took this class! I did load a video to YouTube if you'd like to check it out.
