It's a Be(you)tiful Day!

If you don't have our "Be(you)tiful" collection in your hands yet, you are missing out! This collection has been associated with Summer (which is sadly coming to an end soon), but it is not a summer specific collection at all. This is a great year-round paper collection that can be used in everyday papercrafting & home decor type projects. 

"Be(you)tiful" was a HUGE hit at the Create-n-Connect (CHA) trade show last week. Here are a few projects on display at the show. 

Our design team does such a great job showcasing our collections. The versatility is amazing and we love that our team is always on their toes thinking of new creative possibilities to share with our fans & retailers.  

Here are a few projects from our design team created with "Be(you)tiful" 
Card & Altered project by Andrea Budjack

Card  by Audrey Pettit

Altered Clipboard by Loes de Groot

Layout by Shellye McDaniel

In case you missed it, we also have a few tutorials posted throughout the blog. Our Design Team does a great job not only creating projects, but sharing with you how to re-create them for yourself. 

Click below the photos for the link back to the original tutorial.



We also wanted to showcase a few of our fans that have posted projects on our Facebook page! Don't think for one minute that we let any creativity go unnoticed! We love our fans and strongly encourage you all to share your work with us! 

We simply adore this Birthday Card by Marcia Dehn-Nix! The "Abundant" number/ruler paper is the perfect backdrop for birthday & baby cards! 


Cathy Harper created this "Be(you)tiful" layout, we love the extra splash of teal that she was able to incorporate! Our collections are very versatile so you can add in some of those extra embellishments & trinkets that you otherwise might not know what to do with. 

Looking for more "Be(you)tiful" projects? Don't forget to join us on Pinterest! Our boards are categorized by collection and are a great source to see projects created with Authentiue Paper!

  4. Be(you)tiful makes me think of my beautiful neices. I have an awesome picture of them together and would definitely use it to create a page about them. Being a boy mom it would be a welcome break from the blues and greens and rough and tumble! :)

  8. I just printed some photos of a field of goldenrod that I took in the Spring. Whoever knew that such an allergy-producer could be so beautiful? Anyway, I think the photos could look awesome with this collection!

  14. I think it is perfect to create a mixed media canvas . Perhaps with a picture. I thought about this becuase the colours are not to bold. It will mix super with paint and texturez!

  24. I LOVE this! I'd use this to make a memory book for my son and his FIRST real girlfriend for Christmas.
