Announcing: "Be(you)tiful" by Authentique Paper

You can't spell beautiful without "be you"...we thought it was better suited (and a little more creative) to name this collection "Be(you)tiful." The reminder to "be you" is something we all strive for on a daily basis. We are very excited to present this sunny, cheerful, warm and 'beautiful' collection!


The Be(you)tiful collection contains:

- 6 designer patterned papers, printed on our...you guessed it, signature heavy-weight cardstock,
- 12x12 "Details" sticker sheet, printed on our...custom made matte-finish cardstock adhesive,
- 12x12 "Statements" die-cut accent sheet - double-sided, heavy-weight textured cardstock,
- 6x6 pad, which we call a "bundle"...24 reduced-scale designs with distressed solids on the back,
- Collection kit which includes 12 papers, a Details sticker & a Statements die-cut accent sheet.


Take note of the names of the 12x12 papers in this collection...it's all about expressing yourself, pledging to be yourself, persevering through every situation, being majestic (we are all queens and kings of our own world), and finally, integrating the mantra to "be yourself" into every day life.

The patterns - flowing and wispy florals, a crest which signifies a commitment to being yourself, bees - yes, bees - one of the most fascinating and amazing creatures on the Earth, crowns so you are reminded how amazing and royal you truly are, typewriter keys, "beautiful" words repeated, etc...this collection is truly one we are proud of and if you can't tell, feel the subject/theme is so important!

Now for the paper designs up close and personal - they are even more stunning in person!

"Expressed" 12x12 paper - #BEY001
soft grey toned floral & beautiful words (express yourself!)

"Pledge" 12x12 paper - #BEY002
"be yourself" Ledger w/ crest & grey circle honeycomb

"Persevere" 12x12 paper - #BEY003
Multi color diagonal stripe & bees 

"Majestic" 12x12 paper - #BEY004
Framed crowns (hence, Majestic) & yellow mini dot 

"Abundant" 12x12 paper - #BEY005
Measuring tape & grapefruit geometric pattern 

"Integrate" 12x12 paper - #BEY006

Vintage typewriter keys & newsprint w/ honeycomb overlay


Moving right along to the 12x12 "Details" sticker sheet - Over 160 super-sticky, matte finish cardstock stickers - arguably the BEST quality on the market...the sentiments are absolutely amazing...


"Statements" die-cut accent sheet...textured cardstock so you can write reminders/tell a story of your quest to being YOU!

Remember - paper die-cut accents make it possible to be printed on both sides!

A favorite and often-hoarded item...the 6x6 "bundle"

...and as always, the Collection Kit...a bit of everything from the beautiful, woops...Be(you)tiful collection.

Now for some inspiring and uplifting projects created by Emily, our hard-working, upbeat and beautiful DT and Social Media coordinator...

  34. I love the colours that you have coordinated here, but my favourite part about this line is the message that you are trying to convey. So often, we scrap about the joy that others give to us. Sometimes, it's nice to be reminded that we also give joy to others just by ' being you'.

  37. I love how some of your collections are so subtle and soft and not "in your face" bright colors and patterns, which are okay for a few projects, but for the most part my papercrafting looks best when I use Authentique papers!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the muted colours as they are not too strong and don't compete with the focus of the layout or card. Would love to try them! Thanks for a chance!

  47. This is a funky fresh collection, it is great! I love a soft grey paper, especially with the cool vintage vibe and the cute bee accents. I love a grey yellow combo, too! I could see this being on several summer pages, but I think with the grey and yellows it could be great for a sunny winter day spread, too. I also would love to use the stickers for card making. Another super kit-- I just purchased my first Authentique kit today & I am hooked!
