What do retro Christmas and bitchy woman have in common, you ask, why Authentique Paper of course! Two of my favoritest paper lines at the moment are Retro Christmas and Fabulous and they are brand spankin' new at Alpha Stamps! I couldn't resist making sample art with both pads as they are heavy on mid century kitsch and feature lively vintage color pallets.
First up is a Sweet Retro Christmas Cabinet to make you wish Christmas would get here quicker! Yikes! Forget I said that... we haven't even celebrated Halloween yet! Anyway, here's a look at the cabinet...
Opening the right hand door reveals a red tree festooned with snow and snowmen!
I used a pair of craft scissors to cut the "branches" on back of the tree off so it would fit better in the cabinet.
The left hand door opens to show off a pretty candy jar decoration...
I really love the plaid paper from the Retro Christmas pad... it adds a touch of coziness to the mix.
I'm still pondering adding an image to the back of the cabinet as it looks so bare, but, will anyone see the back of the cabinet when it's being displayed? What would you suggest?
Moving on to bitchy women, lol... Using the kitschy Fabulous paper pad I made a Bitch Book Box filled with ATCs.
This project came together super fast using the easily glued together ATC Sized Faux Book Box. I used some book page images from a copy of Looking Glass Book Box Collage Sheet Part 1 that didn't get used on a previous project so it looks like a real little book. The red glasses the blonde is wearing are cut out of the glasses paper in the Fabulous 12x12 Paper Pad. They fit her perfectly!
The title down the spine (and the bitchy quote on the front!) lets you know right away what this book is all about!
Inside I used three different prints from the Fabulous paper pad and a quote from Bitchy Words Collage Sheet that says "Let's get drunk and judge people" I'm still looking for the perfect image to add to that open space above the quote...
