I wanted a simple look for this card so you can see how pretty flowers can look with Authentique's Anchoredpaper.
My next card was inspired from my passion of sushi. I am crazy for sushi and it inspired me to create this card. I love the flower pattern from the "Anchored"paper collection, which also can be used for an Asian theme.
For my last card, I wanted something fun and simple. These adorable Forget Me Nots are so cute and perfect for card making so I thought adding them to seaweed would be fun next to Mr. Crab.

Hello everyone, Stacy here with you today sharing my project that I created with the amazing Petaloo goodies and Authentique Anchored collection. When I opened the package and saw the flowers and that pattern paper, I knew I find to find something cool to alter. I was walking through the store and saw this wooden unfinished boat.....yep had to have it!!! I simply adore the way this turned out! Let's start out with what the finished project looks like first.
I have a few photos of different views as well since there is so much to see on this one.
To start this project I painted the boat white, then took my Walnut Stain distress ink and blending tool and inked areas of the boat. I used the Authentique Anchored collection and adhered it to the outsides and inside of the boat. Of course since there was the little ledge in the boat when I stood it up I thought a mini album would be the perfect addition to that ledge. On the bottom of the boat I had some netting in my stash and added that fisrt then it was time to have some Petaloo fun. I started by placing the flowers on first. For this I used Petaloo Darjeeling Petities (Teastaine) and Darjeeling Mini Mix (Teastaine & Dahlias). Once I had the flowers placed I added the glass jar of sand and then placed the Petaloo Sea Shells around the jar and flowers.
Now onto the mini album. We are taking a trip this Summer and this will be perfect for our beach photos!
The covers are created using chipboard that I covered with the Authentique Anchored collection. The papers and stickers from this line are simply amazing!! The binding of the album was done using the Cinch machine.
I used all of the same flowers on the mini album as I did on the boat itself. On the binding I added the fabulous Petaloo Fancy Trims in Taupe that really sets the album off.
The inside of the album I used the pattern paper as the pages.
