Hi friends! I have something I'd like to share with you today. I was introduced to a new manufacturer called "Authentique" a couple months ago and it quickly became one of my favorites. Not only do they have beautiful paper lines that double sided and printed on heavy weight cardstock; each of their lines boast rich colors and fabulous, usable patterns as well. Initially this is what captured my attention. Upon further investigation I learned a bit more about the company and that is when my true love affair for Authentique began. The companies philosophy is about being genuine is the only way to live. They celebrate the individual creative spirit, family, preserving memories and many other philosophies that resonate deep with in me. In all of my years in the paper crafting industry I have never seen a company takes my "hobby" to the next level and promote the deeper reason of why I craft. With that being said, if you haven't already become acquainted with Authentique I'd like to share them with you now.
I recently created two layouts using this line. It is pink, girlie and has a vintage flair; three things I love wrapped into one feminine line. I made this layout titled "Love so sublime" using Uncommon. I recently visited one of my favorite vintage stores in old town Elk Grove called "the red door" and wanted to create a layout about this unique little place I discovered. For this layout I fussy cut the doilies out of "original" and the rose cluster out of "Unique" to add softness to the layout design.
Here is an example of one of the die cut sheets called "Icon" and a few of the papers I used on these layouts.
Aren't they all lovely???? If you haven't had the opportunity to work with these papers yet I'd encourage you to get your hands on some. If you live in the Bay Area, stop by my friend Sarah's store "Our Paper Place". She has all of the newest lines in stock including the alpha's and die cut sheets. Hurry and get yours, she sells out of this stuff QUICK!
Thanks for coming by and reading about my new heart throb. lol Be sure to come back soon, I have another layout to share that I made using Authentiques line "Splendid" and a cute little Halloween candy jar using "Glowing". See ya soon.
