A little "Thrilling" without the Thrill!

Did you know that Halloween isn't celebrated world-wide? We heard a lot of international crafters at CHA tell us that they loved the collection, but they didn't celebrate Halloween in their country and wouldn't have a use for it. We know that you CAN indeed find use for this fabulous collection, even if you don't celebrate Halloween! Authentique products are versatile and designed for crafters all around to be able to create with. 

 We took to our talented design team and gave them the challenge of creating some non-Halloween "Thrilling" projects to share today. 

Loes de Groot
Loes is from the Netherlands, so this challenge was easy for her! She created this stunning layout adding lace, flowers, & pearls giving "Thrilling" a more shabby chic look. At first glance you would never know this was created with a Halloween themed paper collection! 


Audrey Pettit
Audrey created this darling fall themed tag & card set. The leaves and kraft colored die cuts & trims tie in perfectly with the papers she chose for these projects.


 Eva Dobilas
Eva also went with the Autumn theme by creating these adorable pumpkin shaped cards with the addition of some general themed sentiments. 



Heather Conklin
Heather took this challenge to the next level and created some gift packaging! The extra colors that she pulled in with the ribbons work perfectly with the paper! 



John Petersen
John created this layout with photos from a trip to a local restaurant. He even incorporated some of the typical Halloween papers & stickers for this non-Halloween themed layout!



Now that you have a few ideas for some non-Halloween themed projects with "Thrilling," we would like to give you a chance to create! Simply leave a comment sharing what non-Halloween themed project you would create with our "Thrilling" collection and we will pick a lucky winner that will be announced in our winner-round up this month!

  26. I know exactly what I'd do with this collection. I'd make a New Year's Eve layout!
    You just have to look for creative ways to make these papers and embellishments work for you!
    I'd do a little fussy-cutting on "Frenzy" to get some hexagons. You could cover up the Halloween images on the ledger paper ("Moonlit") with paper or embellishments. The chevron paper ("Forewarn") is a must, and I see a couple of journaling boxes I could easily use with a few changes.
    There are some stickers on the "Details" sheet that would be great to use, and also some of those tiny word stickers on "Elements".
    I'd build my layout on a piece of "Foundations".
    Add some bright colors to all of that black and white, and you can ring in the new year with style!

  27. My grandpa has a shirt almost the exact same plaid as the "Halloween" plaid paper in this collection! I would use that and the chevrons to make a layout about my grandpa :)

  30. I have a lot of men and boys in my family for whom I make greeting cards and also scrapbook pages about. This paper would work great for doing both of things.

  32. I make Thanksgiving cards each year and like to use orange patterned paper for leaf cutouts. The Thrilling collection has some lovely papers with the perfect colors and prints for this!
