Announcing "Hope"


We are pleased to announce our “Hope” collection in an elegant color palette suited to the splendor of the Easter holiday. The emotion of this holiday is deeper than sometimes portrayed in craft projects, so we felt the nostalgic, beautiful, yet light-hearted designs paired with the name "Hope" appropriately captured the essence of the holiday. On a lighter note, everyone takes photos in their new Easter outfits and the nostalgic designs in this line are so sweet and vintage. 

The "Hope" collection is printed on our EXCLUSIVE custom-milled textured paper, reminiscent of a basket-weave look and feel...unique to Authentique Paper!

Below we've highlighted a few of the paper designs and shared a few thoughts on how we see them being used...

{We instantly think "Beatrix Potter" when admiring this adorable bunnies paper}

{Mini bows are a great background for more than just Easter, it could also be used for baby projects and cards!} 

 {This paper screams nostalgia and could be used in so many different ways!}

 {We love the elegance of these decorative eggs - this paper would be gorgeous when used in a home decor setting}

{A classic plaid with beige, cream and soft blue is always classic and versatile}

{Our BRAND NEW 12x12 "Statements" sticker was created in a bit of a larger format, we so often see people use the larger stickers in projects, so we thought instead of having just one or two, why not offer over a dozen unique shapes with designs and backgrounds ideal for journaling. These stickers will make a statement, whether used on their own, or personalized in a project.}

Included in this line:

  • 12 paper designs - There are two options for this collection - 6 papers with detailed designs on both sides AND a 12 papers with the design on the front and a coordinating solid on the back (we heard such positive feedback from having distressed solids on the back of our Lovely papers, we decided to offer a limited quantity of papers in the format for this line.) 
  • 12x12 Statements sticker (printed on our custom-made matte-finish which allows for better color matching to the papers, which you can't achieve with the glossy finish...and they ink beautifully)
  • 12x8 Elements sticker - Petite alpha stickers, our very popular diction mini word stickers, a great value, with over 500 stickers for only $3.00!
  • BRAND NEW 8x8 bundle - 24 sheets, reduced designs with a coordinating solid on the back...perfect for the altered artist or mini album specialist!
  • 6x6 bundle - For those of you not quite ready to transition to 8x8, the 6x6 paper pad is still available!
  • Collection kit - 12 papers, a 12x12 Details sticker (only available in the kit), and a 12x8 Elements sticker. 

To view the full "Hope" collection, please visit our website...as you can see, the patterns are well-rounded and useful for all age ranges and projects.

  4. Of all the products I saw at CHA this was the one I fell in love with. I have anticipated it ever since you gave us a peek the week of CHA. I have Pinned it too. The soft pastels and adorable graphics are so pretty to me. As you said it has that Beatrix Potter feel to it. I think this DP would be wonderful not just for Easter but also to celebrate Spring.

  30. When our first grandson was born I bought a Beatrix Potter book to read to him and now I sometimes just open it to look at the beautiful illustrations. I just love her work and you are right this collection speaks to her. It is absolutely wonderful and I'm definitely going to have to purchase it. The Hope project is gorgeous, too, and hopefully I'll be the winner.
