Announcing: "Playful" by Authentique Paper

There is an abundant amount of information floating out there about the importance of playing, not only as a child, but as an adult too! One of our favorite quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson is: "It is a happy talent to know how to play." As an adult we often forget the importance of taking time to enjoy life and our beautiful surroundings! Our third reveal of 2015 pays homage to this very thing...being "playful!" We hope this collection will ignite your playful spirit within!

To continue the trend of showcasing the product lines in our booth at last month's industry trade show, below is a look at "Playful" on display.

Just as playtime should never be too complicated or overwhelming, this collection contains just the right amount of pattern paper and coordinating embellishments. Let's go on an adventure and see what "Playful" has to offer!

    Love soaring brings back memories of family playtime. A "staple " for all of us ( mom and siblings included) to have a kite in the trunk of our cars for the "Happenstance" Ice Cream/ Kite call ( mom would call and we would take a break from whatever we were doing ) :) We'd go fly kites down at Rose Bowl and then go to 31 Flavors for ice cream. We did this for years... continued with our own kids for awhile ...

  6. great color scheme for this collection
