Do you ever feel like you are aching to take a journey? Maybe a little trip to somewhere you’ve never been or even just a quick escape to the mall? Well today’s steal, Authentique Journey, might be just what you are looking for to take a journey in your card making, paper crafting or scrapbooking!

Today we are so excited to, once again, be featuring the talented designers of the Authentique Design Team. This time, however, there is a little twist that I gave them and actually invited them to participate in Monday Card Madness by using a card sketch that I provided for them.

I love how Natalie Dever interpreted the sketch by adding the ticket embellishment. Such a great interpretation of the sketch. :)

Misty Buck always pleases with everything she touches!

I love how Cristine Redmond distressed the edges of the papers and added the twine. I must say the quality of Authentique paper is perfect for adding the little bit of distressing.

Jeannie DeGruccio absolutely blew me away with her interpretation of the sketch. I love the stitched paper and the flower is perfection!

Now we can’t forget the amazing Emily Lanham that recently treated us to such incredible projects using the We R Memory Keepers Hardware. I think you’ll agree that her interpretation of the sketch is equally as amazing.

Lastly we are treated to another fantastic interpretation of the sketch by Heather Conklin. Once again the paper choices and layering is true perfection!

Thanks so much to the A-Team for playing along with today’s Monday Card Madness. Be sure to check out each of the designers own personal blogs by clicking on each of their names. Oodles of ideas and inspiration at your fingertips!

For those of you that are wondering what to do with your amazing cards, now that we are currently in between card swaps here at ScrapbookSteals, one of our fans, Lori Burton, brought to my attention an amazing opportunity that we card crafters can participate in. Many have heard the tragic news of a school shooting at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio. The students are not asking for anything other than cards. They would love a card  from anyone that would like to help participate in wallpapering the walls of their schools to help memorialize their friends and loved ones.

If you would like to create a card to help in their wish it can be sent to:

Chardon High School

Have a great day and be sure to check in tomorrow when we take a break from our How To’sday’s with an amazing treat from guest blogger Shaunte Wadley. Seriously. It will blow you away.
