"Authentique" "Uncommon" - "Remember you are special"

A while back I oredered three different collections made by Authentique Paper from 
the online store Stop and Scrap which only happen to be my very favourite spot to shop for scrappy supplies!!
 I will just give you the tip that if you want to shop there do use the code on my sidebar PAPERGLUE to get 12% off your order  which normally will be more than you get from the newsletter they send out. Just  a tip....

Now for my layout, I actually have several to share but am waiting to get better photos of them.

I did quite a bit of fussy cutting here. Those roses are so pretty.  I made a fan fold rosette from the striped paper, I love watching the effect made by the stripes on the rosettes.

As you know by now I am in love with "Imaginarium Designs" chipboard .
They have a beautiful selection of shapes and sizes for all kinds of projects. The 'tinies' are great for cards or as an accent, and the larger pieces make for great focal points on a layout.
Here I have used the flourish and the small frame that accentuates my quote.

The letters for the title are by Prima Marketing and are textile covered. 
They are my go to letter stickers at the moment. 
The fence-chipboard is by the Polish manufacturer Scrapinec.

I cut out the large round background and glued it to my base after distressing it. 
To stress the feminine nature of the layout I added some lace all around the edge. 
The lace was made by "October Afternoon".

 I painted the flourish with some dimensional paint or snow paint.
I pressed the little frame onto my white stamp pad to colour it and I like the effect I got.

These are the chipboard pieces I have been using from ID:

I like to cut this swirl in two and use  just half of it.

The tiny frames will add interest to any scrapbook project!!

Ok enough from me. 
Thanks for dropping by. (Any comments you feel like leaving are very welcome.)

Keep safe!
