Authentiqe Renew Layouts

Hello bloggers!  BRRR!  It's cold out there today!  Let's warm up with some Spring layouts with Authentique's Renew line from The Scrapbooking Studio!

Both layouts have interactive flaps to enable more photos on each layout.  These two layouts combined can hold a minimum of 13 photos!  The interactive flaps were made by punching each layer with the Lucky 8  Classic Wreath punch.  The top layer was punched with both switches in the "on" position on two corners only.  The remaining corners were punched with only the outside punch switch on.  The 2 layer pocket on the lower edge of the layout on the left was also made with the Lucky 8 punch.

A detail shot of the wood veneer medallion, painted white and layered onto the outside flap with a flower made from Spellbinder's Rose Creations Dies.  The flower centers are pearl stamens from my stash colored with Addirondack alcohol ink in butterscotch. 
 And...there was some leftover glitter ribbon from last month's projects and it was a perfect match for this line!

The second layout was oriented to open on the right side of the page.  Hinges decked out with bling from my stash were add to this flap, along with a piece from Titles and Phrases for the title and a partially hidden journal block.  The title piece was accented with flowers made from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies, a pearl pin, Queen & Co. twine and Diamond Stickles.

 The interactive parts...the double layer photo mat was fussy-cut around the yellow flowers and accented with some bling in some of the flower centers.

This is a closer look at the bitty blossoms accenting the title.

  1. So, as a new scrapbooker, how would these interactive flaps work in a scrapbook? Obviously you couldn't put these in a sheet-protecter-page-thingy....so how would you put these in a scrapbook??

    I love the interactive pages a lot but have only seen them in chipboard books and smaller in size...


  2. Great question, Miss B! These pages actually can be placed into page protectors! The top flaps are not placed inside the protector, only the base page. The side flap layout is a little trickier. If you have top-loading page protectors, the top opening could be sealed. Then a side opening could be cut into the page protector, slide the base page into the protector, allowing the side flaps to remain outside.

    Thanks for your question! Be Inspired! Julie
