Announcing: "Thrilling"... by Authentique Paper

We have remained true to naming our collections around emotion based words and “Thrilling” is a perfect example, since Halloween night is just that! The "Thrilling" collection received instant recognition when displayed at the CHA-S show and we are THRILLED to reveal it to you today!  

When we crated this collection, we used traditional colors in a variety of shades and tones  to achieve a rich, nostalgic look and feel. Cream, white, orange, black and grey combine beautifully to highlight the patterns in this collection. There is depth to every design and we take pride in paying attention to the little details!

"Thrilling" displayed at the trade show in Las Vegas in mid-July. We heard time after time how Authentique's Thrilling collection is BY FAR the best Halloween line available this year! 

One thing worth mentioning is when we create a holiday-specific theme, no matter if you celebrate the holiday or not, you will find the patterns on the back sides of our paper are always generic and useable for any occasion. Even if you don't celebrate Halloween, we are confident you will want to have these designs in your paper stash!

"Moonlit" 12x12 paper - THR001
Antique white ledger with trick-or-treater silhouette & multi color vertical lace stripe

"Frenzy" 12x12 paper - THR002
Mixed icon honeycomb quilt & word search reduced scale text

"Superstition" 12x12 paper - THR003
Mini pumpkins & intricate skull damask

"Antidote" 12x12 paper - THR004
Bats in spiderweb & multi color plaid

"Forewarn" 12x12 paper - THR005
Antique white apothecary labels & black chevron

"Mystic" 12x12 paper - THR006
Vintage Halloween greetings & cream/orange dot

"Foundations" 12x12 paper - THR011
Black scratch distressed solid & black/grey mini dot

Scroll back up and re-read the names of each 12x12 patterned paper...don't you love how the name of the paper foreshadows the design of the pattern!?!? Again, it's the little things which all combine to make this collection so much fun!

"Details" 12x12 sticker - THR007

Take an extra moment to really examine the amazing design and expressions found on this year’s sticker sheets (above and below). Our die-cutting technology is world class and each individual sticker a work of art.

"Elements" 12x8 sticker - THR008

Authentique fans often comment on the quotes placed on the "header" of our 12x12 papers and the bonus tag on the inside of our 6x6 bundles...these quotes further link the name of the collection and emotion associated with each theme.  You'll have to get your hands on the 6x6 bundle to see the surprise tag inside!

"Bundle" 6x6 paper pad

The "Thrilling" collection kit (below) is loaded with 2 of each patterned paper, a distressed solid and both sticker sheets! This is a grab and go item you can purchase to ensure you don't miss out on the entire collection! Item # THR010

And now for some inspiration! Once again, our design team has created masterpieces to share with you and spark your creativity!

  25. Such an amazing post. I kept doing as instructed and looking "further" into all the details and am more amazed than before. I have to say Authentique really is my #1 Top Fave! This collection has me with jaw dropped. Love "Frenzy" and Multi-colored Plaid. Really, really love the "Forewarn" Apothecary Tags. The Block Letter S-P-O-O-K-Y is terrific! Designers have done a FABULOUS job of showcasing this collection and truly got me into the Halloween Creative Spirit.
    Hope it counts if I have had the badge for a few weeks now as my FB Profile Pic....LOL! I just had a feeling I was going to LOVE this one!

  26. "Forewarn" 12x12 paper - THR005 is my favorite of the papers and the Stickers are to DIE for :) Halloween is my favorite time of the year and I am looking for paper now to get started. My mother in law (who passed away on Feb. 15th 2013) needs a new Halloween page in her book since I gave it away to a man friend of hers in the nursing home where she was on Hospice. I also need to do a section of my book with Halloween and my Dog! I'll be taking pictures of the kids this year and want to put them on these pages! Thanks! Shared on FB, Tweeted, and going to be doing a new wall board with just your paper on it starting with this Halloween one that is perfect! Thank you for doing the giveaway!
