Announcing: "Remembrance" ...a Petite Collection by Authentique Paper

As nature intended, the beauty of life eventually passes. It is a deeply held honor to pay tribute and regard to loved ones who have left us. "Remembrance" is a Petite Collection with deep colors, elegant patterns, and sentiments of sympathy, thoughtfulness, and good memories. These variables, all combined, help to create just the right emotion. When the need arises to create a sympathy card for a loved one, or to preserve the precious memories of a life lost, our "Remembrance" collection will assist your worthy efforts. 


This year we introduced our "Petite Collections" which consist of three double sided papers, an "Enhancements" cut-apart paper, one sticker sheet, a 6x6 bundle and collection kit. *There's also a brand new sticker sheet - keep reading to see what it is!

A close-up view of "Remembrance" on display. 

Deep plum/wine, cheerful green, elegant gray-tones and cream are the staple colors in our "Remembrance" line. Classy, elegant, respectful and beautiful all at the same time.

Here's a look at the 12x12 textured papers (we are known for our signature heavy-weight cardstock)...we think the balance of patterns, color and scale in this collection are remarkable!

Remembrance paper #2 front (above) and back side (below)



Remembrance paper #3 front (above) and back side (below)


"Enhancements" cut-apart paper - ideal for mini albums, card making and so much more! Be sure to take note of the three different patterns on the back side of this paper - the different designs match up to the front side of the paper.



A coordinating sticker sheet and 24 piece bundle with coordinating solids round out this "petite collection". Reduced scale designs with solid color papers on the back of the 6x6 bundle sheets offer a nice variety for all of the smaller scale projects you want to create.


The "Components" 6x12 stickers are a brand new edition to the Authentique Paper line up...still printed on our custom matte-finish stickers, they offer variety to the petite collections and new shapes and sizes, as well as washi tape-inspired strips! 



Collection kit featuring 6 double sided papers, an Enhancements cut-apart, 6x12 Components sticker and a bonus Petite Type alphabet...MSRP $9.99


We love how our design team uses their creativity when creating projects - below is a project created by Loes for her daughter - not sympathy-related, rather intended to show her daughter how deeply loved she truly is.

Inside Loes made an envelope and wrote a letter to her daughter - this will surely be a keepsake for many years to come.
Project by Design Team Member Loes de Groot

Every crafter should have a stash of cards...for every occasion, not just the fun, light-hearted moments, but for the times when a friend, loved one, neighbor or acquaintance needs a note of sympathy or a lift in their day...we have all lost someone special, and the anniversary of the day the loved one was lost never skips a year...why not create a card to let someone know you are thinking of them?
