6x6 Chipboard Book created using Authentique's Winter Season Collection
We selected an Authentique Collection as a feature in our January 2014 Kit Terrific Klub issue… The Authentique “Abroad” paper line. We love Authentique! When we had our store front, we participated in Authentique’s autoship program and looked forward to our new collection arriving each month. Over time, we accumulated a substantial stock of Authentique and as you might imagine, some items would sell quicker than others. One item in particular that we accumulated a lot of were the 6×6 paper pads that came with each collection package. These 6×6 paper pads offered all the papers in the collection, but in a mini version, the actual print design was a smaller scale. These are awesome little paper pads and I challenged Tiffany to make something with one that would entice others to also want to create with them…
The chipboard book shown above was her answer to my challenge! Still in progress with some additional embellishing, Tiffany used a paper pad from Authentique’s Season: Winter and started cutting and pasting! All papers in the pad coordinate making the piecework for this book as easy as can be… no mistakes, everything looks right with everything else! Adding a some photo mats and ribbon accents and you already have a perfect photo showcase for anything you want!
Inside pages are simple, clean and neat, additional embellishing can be done once a purpose for the book is decided.
Tiffany played on the winter theme of the paper and decided to add a newsprint snowman as well as some snowflakes to the book’s cover. Bound with three rings and adorned with coordinating hand-dyed ribbon, the book is a quick and simple way to make something wonderful!
Authentique has themed collections for many special occasions including weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Patriotic themes as well as the big ones like Christmas, Easter and Halloween. Cranking out these pretty, specially themed books is a great way to showcase these occasions. Hhhmmmm, I’m thinking some 6×6 chipboard book kits might be in order!
