Announcing: "Glistening"... by Authentique Paper

The official release of our "Glistening" collection is finally here! 

The colors can be used year round and we always offer a versatile alternative on the backs of our themed papers... just in case you are lucky enough to live in a place where Old Man Winter cannot find you!




This incredibly artistic winter-themed collection was inspired by the “sugar plum lady” featured on the “Sparkle” paper. Her beauty was intriguing...chilly, yet warm and inviting at the same time. Four of the six papers within this line feature a side design for amazing borders. 

Six double sided patterned papers, cut apart "Enhancements" paper, distressed solid, 12x12 sticker, 6x12 die cut paper accents, 6x6 bundle and collection kit make up this beautiful, heart warming collection. We are so pleased to formally introduce "Glistening"...

  10. Oh, it so nice to see a collection with soft blues - most winter collections are Christmas themed, with reds and green. And they are not traditional colors here. Blue on the other hand is. And the whole collection reminds me of first morning in the New Year when you wake up late and look from the window and see fresh snow and fresh world.

  16. I once read that when scrapping snow pictures, try using browns. If you look at Shellye's layout, you'll see why. Beautiful!!
    I get a little chilly even looking at the colors in this collection. Hope we get a good amount of snow this winter so I can use this collection to scrap my pictures!
