Announcing: "Smitten"... by Authentique Paper

If you love love as much as we love love, you will absolutely fall in love with our "Smitten" collection!

Although the winter holidays are still a few weeks away, as a manufacturing company, we release collections well in advance of the actual holiday, to give everyone the opportunity to prepare and create handmade projects to enjoy throughout the season (of love).  


The "Smitten" collection is classic Authentique Paper design...vintage with a modern twist. A mix of nostalgic elements, icons and contemporary patterns create a look to suit many people's artistic style. 

This collection includes:

6 two sided patterned papers
1 coordinating distressed solid paper
pre cut cardstock paper accents
custom matte finish cardstock stickers
6x6 paper bundle
complete collection kit 

We always put time & careful thought into naming our collections and paper designs. Notice how the papers are named - elements and feelings related to all things love. We are elated to present our Valentine/Love theme for 2014: Smitten

"connection" 12x12 paper - Item # SMI001
vintage keys & heart lockets / chocolate stripe

"fusion" 12x12 paper - Item # SMI002

"components" die cut cardstock paper accents - Item # SMI015
Since the Components are cardstock paper, we were able to print on both sides, giving you the option to layer pieces and create 3D embellishments!

Adorable phrases, sentiments, love notes and more - 60 super-sticky pieces!

"collection kit" - Item # SMI014

  13. oh my doodles! I am smitten with "SMITTEN" lol! I adore Valentines day since it is all about love (no presents required, just love) I love hearts too! I love the mixture of paper patterns, vintage (like keys & hearts and cupid & damask), country (like gingham and the wood grains) ,then modern (love words and hearts) and sorta old world (cursive) quite a mixture for all tastes. Thanks for bringing us great collections to create with! ♥♥♥

  17. I just arrived in USA and discovered scrap booking. I love it!!
    And I love Authentique paper. Their quality is simply amazing. I used one of your collections "Strong" to make an album for my father, yours were the only collection that had decent masculine patterns. Now this "Smitten" collection is just gorgeous. Its lovely without being overly sugary. Love it! I really wish I can win it!

  27. Very pretty!. I can see myself using this for things other than "love" theme.. I adore pink and I love ti when a manufacture comes out with a pink line that can be used for more than Valentine's Day and love theme. I have some Taylor Swift "RED" tour concert pics that would make this line rock!! I have worked with Authentique int he past for a design team and find it is a wonderful manufacturer to showcase!
