HUESday fun & a few announcements!

We know not all of our fans are on Facebook and we don't ever want you to miss out on the action on our Facebook page, so we thought it would be fun to share a post from Friday which was a total random act of color-matching!

Our owners, Bret and Samantha noticed about 5:30pm that their individual outfits were a perfect match to two of our collections released this summer. 

Do you know which collections they are holding up to show off their coordinating outfits? The photo doesn't show it, but Bret's shoes match too!

Also, if you frequently check out the homepage of our website or the products section, you may have noticed a couple of new collections pop up last week...

The first is a true denim & leather inspired collection called "Original" & the second is a fall/Thanksgiving collection titled "Thankful".

When you find the perfect pair of jeans, you want them in every color... the same applies to pretty paper! "Original" is an encore to our best-selling "Genuine" collection; we, along with our customers, wanted more! The denim-inspired feel is continued, and we've added in a hint of leather, yet this collection is centered around being "you...wonderful, unique, original you!" The papers and sticker embellishments are universal and akin to denim, a staple and compliment to any project. Original is set to be an October release, but we are shipping it to many stores who have requested to receive it ahead of schedule. You will love playing with this line, it just "feels" right - with our signature heavy-weight textured paper, the look of denim is highlighted beautifully!

"Thankful" was created as a response to overwhelming requests for Authentique Paper (that's us!) to release a Thanksgiving/fall collection...our holidays have been reported as some of the top selling collections in stores, so it seemed logical for us to create a line for this autumn season. Nostalgic colors and patterns will take you back to your childhood and remind you of family gatherings. This was a surprise collection, not shown at the Summer CHA show, this is the first official time we have shown it to anyone! Thankful arrived in our warehouse on Friday and is set to officially release in October, but we're happy to ship it early so you can get started on designing some fun fall decor or other creative projects!

For a full view of BOTH of these collections, be sure to check out the Products page on our website!

  12. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for remembering those of us who do not use Facebook. It is always a little depressing when I see great opportunities, giveaways and other fun stuff focused soley on Facebook followers leaving us others out of the loop.
