Announcing: "Classique: Beauty" by Authentique Paper

Authentique Paper's "Classique" series has been one of the most sought after lines we have ever produced.  The simple color palette of black, white, cream and grey, accented by a single color, is classy and timeless. "Classique: Beauty" is the third installment of the series, preceded by Classique: Elegant & Classique: Pretty. The new kid on the block (Beauty) is already a fan favorite and a definite must-have!

A look at "Beauty" displayed in our trade show booth at the Craft & Hobby Association convention earlier this month.

The foundation of this collection is 12 double sided pattern papers, printed on our luxurious heavy-weight textured cardstock. Accompanying the beautiful patterns is a 6x12 cardstock die cut accent sheet, 12x12 cardstock sticker, mini alphabet and word stickers, and the highly sought after 3x4 Authentic Life pocket crafting cards.

Announcing: "Treasure" by Authentique Paper

Our first reveal of 2015, and we are pleased to introduce you to a collection you will be sure to "treasure" for years to come! Authentique Paper is known for providing high quality textured paper, and our four new collections (which we will reveal over the next few weeks) are printed on our coveted & luxurious textured cardstock!

 When creating collections such as Treasure, we take careful consideration so the papers can be used for holiday projects and beyond. The paper designs are not theme-specific, rather versatile and useable year-round. The cut apart Enhancements paper, cardstock accents and mini word stickers are Easter-themed, but pick up a few extra sheets of your favorite design and use for spring, feminine and other soft projects!

A look at "Treasure" in our booth at the Craft & Hobby Association trade show a few weeks ago. Treasure was a must-have for many buyers and store owners. It is even more beautiful in person, we can't wait for you to get your hands on this collection!

12x12 Paper Pad- TRE015
For those who prefer paper-only, we have created the 12x12 paper pad which includes 24 sheets of our heavy-weight textured pattern paper!

Our design team has created a few projects to give some ideas of how our papers and accents can be used to create a variety of crafty projects - home decor, scrapbooking, card making, to name a few.
