Announcing: "Tradition"...a brand new Christmas collection by Authentique Paper

Due to overwhelming requests, we are releasing two holiday collections in 2013. The "Tradition" collection is more of a general holiday line, whereas our Joyous collection is classic Christmas.  "Tradition" is a more paper-focused line with nine double-sided papers; however, we included an 8x12 sticker sheet, perfect for card-making, a 6x6 Bundle with 32 sheets, including distressed solids on the back, and a collection kit with a little bit (okay a lot!) of everything.

Eclectic, unique, unexpected, amazing, and refreshing are the words used most often to describe first reaction to this line. We are pleased to officially introduce you to this colorful holiday collection and hope you will enjoy creating with it!

  18. There's a lot you could do with this collection besides Christmas. That's the kind of thing I look for when I'm buying a paper pack...whether or not I'll get a lot of use out of it. My favorite papers are the ornaments and the stockings.
    I like that the 6x6 pad comes with distressed solids on the back, because everyone can use solids!
    The muted colors are a nice change of pace. I'm tired of bright colors and am ready to tone things down a bit.

  21. It's so warm and mellow.Gives me a nice cozy feeling.And I agree with Lu L-a lot of the papers are not holiday specific-so much you could do this with the collection. Fell in love with the snowman when I saw it on FB. Would love to hang some on my Christmas tree.

  34. What a wonderful collection!! I love all the geometric prints and the color combinations. It doesn't feel like the typical Christmas collection and yet it has those adorable papers with the trees and stockings. Chevrons, stripes and dots....oh my! I'm so glad you released it this early because I'm already planning my holiday cards and gifts. Those circle element stickers are fabulous!

  35. wow...I love this collection. Trendy yet Vintage at the same time. That is hard to do! Gorgeous!

  36. THANK you for letting those of us who do not have FB participate by commenting!!!

    Love this Tradition collection so much! I really love the blue-gray in these papers. The paler more subdued colors look so vintage and hearken back to a more elegant time in the past.....when houses had classy decorations, instead of plastic inflatable Santas and when people still dressed up for Christmas Dinner, instead of wore jeans. (Hey....don't take my jeans away from me!!!....) lol...

    Thank you for the chance to win!!
