Announcing: "Abroad"... by Authentique Paper

Bonjour! We have been anxiously awaiting the announcement of our "Abroad" collection...grab the suitcase you secretly keep packed in the back of your closet and get ready for the journey of a lifetime! Universal in appeal, our "Abroad" collection will surely find a place in your adventurous heart!


After numerous requests from consumers and retail store owners alike, we have expanded many of our 2014 collections to include 12 pattern papers with a coordinating distressed solid on the back. Standard "solid" cardstock is a dime a dozen, but finding the perfect color match is nearly impossible...unless it comes straight from the source! To keep things interesting, each "solid" in this collection is actually a subtle map pattern...We are sure you will be pleased with the addition of "solids" to the Authentique Paper line up!

We trimmed our design- tree and created coordinating embellishments in only the best-selling shapes and sizes. Stamp Blocks, Circles & Scallops and Titles & Phrases are offered as complimentary pre-cut paper accents, in addition to the ever-popular 12x12 Details and 12x8 Elements stickers! 

Okay, here we go...the in depth reveal!
