My new favorite Collection...Gathering!

I am in LOVE with the newest release from Authentique!

The Gathering collection features aqua, orange and brown! 
totally Cool!
I mean seriously...
How amazing is this poppy paper!
 or these!

For my project today, I started with these wooden frames from Michael's...only $1.00

I first painted it with brown craft paint and then using a thin layer of modge podge, adhered the background.
I then sanded the edges, added some ink and it was ready to decorate!
I made these for my daughter and her friend...thinking they will love them!
 Thanks for stopping by the Authentique Blog today!
now run and pick up some Gathering and wooden frames!!

Free Bird Frenzy


It has been a Free Bird Frenzy around here! When we came up with the idea of the Free Bird Series, we knew we would be the first company to introduce 6x6 open-stock papers, and the response has proven that this was a great decision!

Traditionally, 6x6 papers have only been sold in paper bundles, or four 6x6 designs are put into quadrants on a 12x12 paper and sold as one sheet. Consumers love having the choice of whether or not they want to purchase one, two, three or even six or seven pieces of one paper design.

Created by Authentique Paper DT member Cristine Redmond

Since all of the designs in our Free Bird series are original designs, and instead of a 12x12 pattern simply being scaled down to 6x6, you truly do have a unique product created with the crafter in mind. The paper-crafting world has evolved into so much more than scrapbooking. There are altered artists, card-makers, home decor junkies, and even a new consumer who may not consider themselves to be particularly crafty, but they want to hand-make a gift or invitations to a celebration, baby or wedding shower, or house-warming party.

Created by Authentique Paper DT member Emily Lanham

The Free Bird Series was created with all of these different consumers in mind. We truly value the different styles and desires of each person, and the endless possibilities to create a hand-made project with Free Bird make this a universal product.

Created by Authentique Paper DT Specialist Charissa Miller

Just in case you haven't seen all 32 of the beautiful designs Tara and I created (I concept the lines, choose the colors, and spec out the designs and then Tara waves her magic wand and actually creates the papers in a fancy program), I'll include a few of the best-sellers, in no particular order below, and then you can always visit our website and view the entire series.

First, I'd like to introduce (or re-introduce) you to me and Tara - just so you can put a name with a face...

Sam

Tara

The Free Bird Series includes eight color schemes, each with four papers per scheme. All of the 6x6 papers are double sided (awesome pattern on the front, and coordinating solid on the back), as well as printed on our signature heavy-weight, textured cardstock! Oh, and they MSRP for only $0.35 - that's just a dime & a quarter - pocket change!

Just a little side note, and I know I may have said this before, but all of the papers are based off of this Fall's color and design trends - so get 'em while they're hot!

"Blush" FBS 103

"Comfort" FBS 107

"Delight" FBS 109

"Endless" FBS 114

"Fair-weather" FBS 117

"Fair-weather" FBS 120

"Familiar" FBS 121

"Poised" FBS 127

"Warmth" FBS 131

Did I happen to mention that we have nothing against 6x6 paper pads? In fact, we offer the Free Bird Series in "Nests" - there are four Nests total - each with two of the eight color schemes combined into one Nest. So, if you prefer, and we can't please everyone, but for those of you who aren't quite ready to set 6x6 papers free - go ahead, grab a Nest and enjoy it as well!


Moral of the story? The Free Bird Series is universal, and in my opinion, paper crafters of all skill-level can find quick & easy or more in-depth ways to use these super-rich papers! Why waste a whole 12x12 sheet of paper, or force yourself to buy a $6-8 paper pad when you may really only love or actually use a few of the designs. At $0.35 a pop, you can hoard the Free Bird Series paper and not even feel guilty!

Join the movement - indulge in the Free Bird Series, and never look back!


xoxoxo,
Sam

Have a Glowing Halloween!

Hello Authentique fans! It's Heather with a card set, just in time for a Glowing Halloween! 

Each of these cards used pieces from the Glowing line. I used quite a bit of the Glowing Foundations, Lace Spiderweb, Ledge, Black Gingham, and Orange Brocade. 
I cut four of the same sized pieces of two papers for the base of the patterned sections, then layered them with four similarly cut papers in a smaller size. I used my Cricut for all of the diecut pieces, but you could also use a Corner Chomper and achieve the same results. I then swapped the papers for each card.
To make a little more interest with the stamped sentiment, I also diecut the paper for the stamp using the Foundations paper. I used a chalk ink and a pen outline to give the sentiment a little grungier look. Each card uses various combination's of Twinery twine, buttons, and gems
 

There aren't too many more days before Halloween, but there is definitely enough time to make a few Glowing cards of your own!


Card Supplies: 
AUTHENTIQUE patterned papers: Glowing-Foundations-Black Dot, Cream Solid & Solid Black, Lace Spiderweb, Ledge, Black Gingham, and Orange Brocade
Other Supplies: Basic Grey buttons, Inkadinkado stamp, Twinery twine, iRock gems, Colorbox Chalk Ink

A look inside the Authentique Paper craft room...

I thought it would be fun today to switch things up a bit and give you an up-close look at our brand new Authentique Paper studio craft room!

We started the company a few months ago (sometimes it feels like we've been in business forever, and then I realize that we are a tender new company and I am suddenly brought back to reality) and we are thrilled with our new office space. We found a great warehouse/office park close to home, and we were fortunate enough to be able to build-out our space to our satisfaction. We wanted an open environment, high ceilings (all the way to the rafters - exposed beams and duct work), concrete floors (painted a rich chocolate brown), a brand new *clean* bathroom (shower included!), work spaces for everyone (with room to grow - which we've already out-grown!), ample warehouse and storage space (yep, we've outgrown that space too)...more photos to come in another blog post.

(this is as you walk in the front door in the main office)

The latest edition to our space (or studio as it's been referred to, which makes it sound so artsy, I love it!) was a craft room where we could escape and actually play with our products. I'll be the first to admit that Monday was my first official creative experience in the craft room. It's simple...small...but cozy and functional. It's not totally complete, but it's useable, and quite honestly, I kind of love it! My interior design background cringes to even post these photos, but whatever...I figure half-way done is better than nothing! A step in the right direction...

(the lighting is not great, but these photos make it look way worse than it actually is)


(this shelf is not actually in the craft room, it's in my office)

I snuck away Monday morning - just me, our brand new Gathering Collection, and a box of orange soda (not to drink, but to transform into a Gathering-inspired masterpiece). Was I able to create a "masterpiece", not really - but what I did make, I think, is pretty darn cute. I left my cell phone and laptop on my desk - on the other side of the office-space, far enough away so I couldn't hear my phone ring or my email accost me as it usually does on a Monday morning. Bret and Melodee had NO idea where I was, and they didn't think to look in the craft room. Ha! Joke was on them! About 12:30pm, I appeared out of nowhere, parched and a tad-bit exhausted. Seriously, I have had no time in the past few months to sit down and actually make something...with our OWN products! I am so glad I put my own foot down and forced myself to exert some creative energy.
(this was my main project - simple, yet so fun!)

Our new "Gathering" Collection is one of my favorite's to-date. I love the rich blue/teal/brown/cream with the pop of orange. When I created the color palette, I instantly knew it would turn into a beautiful Collection. Butterflies. I was in heaven.

Since we print (everything in the U.S.A.) on a heavy-weight textured cardstock, the papers are a dream to touch, and the colors have a depth that is unique to Authentique Paper. You can literally hear the scissors cut through the paper - it's a sound that is rare in this industry these days. Give it a try, you'll see what I'm talking about!

Our die-cut elements are printed on super-heavy weight cardstock, and of course, we went the extra mile and printed on both sides, so, if you aren't in love with the word-phrase or image on the front, you can always flip it over and use the shape for layering in your project. There are so many possibilities with our die cuts, and best of all - they are affordable. Yep - all of our die cut elements and stickers retail for either $1 or $2 - everyone has a buck or two, and we know how to stretch that dollar farther than you can imagine!

Okay, back to the craft room...I've been asked by a couple of people to write a blog post, or series of posts, giving you all a virtual tour of our *studio, so today I thought the craft room would be a good place to start and then over the next few weeks I will snap some photos and share the story of how this all came to be. If I knew how to video-blog, or whatever it's called, I'd share a video, but I don't know how...so I'll do my best to learn, and maybe someday you can have an actual virtual tour of our fabulous office space. For today, a few photos of the craft room will have to do.

I'd love to see what you've created with Gathering - and if your LSS doesn't carry Gathering yet, please ask them to bring it in! I will let you in on a little Authentique insider-information - over the past week or so, we've sent samples of the new Collection to our current customers, and we are trying our best to continue to reach out to stores who don't carry our products yet.

Note to self: We are a new company, 5 months old...it doesn't happen overnight, keep calm and carry on - keep spreading the word and eventually all of our loyal customers and fans will have a place to find our products.

Alright - I hope you all have a tremendous Tuesday - share the love and spread the word - Autumn is here and it's a perfect time to Gather with friends and family to create some unforgettable memories!

xoxoxo,
Sam

Blissful Organization Part One

Hello all! Today will be the first part of a two-part post. You'll have to wait until November 4th to see the second half, but for now you can enjoy the project I made using the Blissful collection. :)

This is the finished product! I have to admit, this is the first item of this kind that I've ever made. I probably could have done some things differently, but I'm pleased with the outcome. Now sit back and enjoy because I'm going to tell you how you can make something like this yourself!

1~ I started off with at 12 x 12 sheet of cork board, a piece of MDF cut to size, two sheets of metal (both 4.5 in x 9 in), some rubber cement, E-6000 adhesive and a piece of patterned paper from the Blissful collection.

2 ~ I cut the paper down to size and then covered the back side of the paper with rubber cement. While that was drying, I covered one side of each of the metal sheets. I let both of them dry and then put the metal on the paper so both of the rubber cemented sides were together.
3 ~ I folded up the sides of the paper and covered both sides that would come in contact with rubber cement, letting them dry, then pressing the sides down. This step was a little trickier. It was harder to get the shorter pieces of paper to stick to the metal. When I do this next time, I'll skip the cutting the paper to size bit and cut after I get the pieces glued down.

4 ~ I put the covered sheets aside to let them dry overnight. I applied the E-6000 to the MDF and the cork tile, put them together, then placed a heavy book on top to make sure the two stuck together well. Then I put those aside to dry overnight.

5 ~ The next day, I decided to make some felt flowers to embellish the finished bulletin board. Here is a quick how-to for anyone who wants to know how this is done. Cut four circles the same size and then one a bit smaller. Here, the bigger circles are two inches and the smaller one is 1.5 inches.

Fold one of the bigger circles in half...

Then fold it in half again...

Place some craft glue or hot glue at the tip (where I am pinching) and then secure it to the smallest circle. You're going to place the glued sections in quarters.

Sorry for the super blurry picture!

Once all four pieces are glued on, glue a button or other embellishment into the center of the flower.

6 ~ Now it's time to get back to the boards! I cut the cork board down to size with a serrated knife, because I had my husband pre-cut the MDF down to 10 in x 11 in to allow one inch on each side of the magnet board. Then I used the E-6000 to glue the metal sheets to the cork board.

7 ~ I used a staple gun to attach some ribbon to the back of the board so it could hang.

8 ~ I used a glue gun to add the embellishments. Add magnets and pins and VOILA! You're done! Here is the finished product again:

Thank you so much for stopping by! As I mentioned earlier, be sure to check back on November 4th for part two of this post! Also, if you want a chance to win this cute bulletin board, check out my blog, onescrappynovice.blogspot.com!

Fall Memories with Glowing and Glue Arts

This week on the Authentique Paper blog we will be sharing projects created using the Glowing Collection and Glue Arts adhesives.

Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.

Here is Brenda with today's Glowing project:


Every once in a blue moon, a halloween paper line comes along that I just cannot resist. I'm not usually a Halloween colors type of girl, but something about the richness of the colors and patterns of Glowing called out to me. Glowing is a must-have in my book.
























I wanted to use this layout for fall pictures because I don't have too many Halloween themed pictures since my daughter, who was 6 months at Halloween last year, pretty much refused to wear her costume long enough for me to snap many pictures. But I was able to take a few pictures of her acting super silly with a pumpkin.

















The Glue Glider Pro was perfect for adhering the papers together. I felt like I could properly control how much adhesive I used and where it went since I knew I wanted to stitch on this layout and didn't want to gummy up the machine's needle.
















I really loved the Glue Arts U Cut It dimensional foam adhesive because, again, I could control how much I used. I popped up the Glowing Icons and Tabloids to add a little depth to the layout.



I thought I might struggle with attaching the burlap to the layout, but Glue Arts came to the rescue again with their ExtremeTac Adhesive Squares. I simply pressed the burlap up to the Adhesive Squares and then adhered to the layout. There's no way that baby's coming off. 

Glue Arts and Authentique really are the perfect combinationa and I had so much fun playing around with both this week. Thanks so much for joining me today. 

Supplies Used:
Papers: Glowing
Diecuts: Glowing Icons, Tabloids, and Noteables
Word Stickers: Glowing Diction
Adhesive: Glue Arts
Brad and Burlap Trim: My Mind's Eye
Alphas: American Crafts

Trick or Treat with Glue Arts

This week on the Authentique Paper blog we will be sharing projects created using the Glowing Collection and Glue Arts adhesives.

Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.

Here is Misty with today's Glowing project:




I don't usually scrapbook many Halloween photos but I do always love the way they remind me of the fun we had. I still can't get over what a super duper cute Superman my baby made that year.
So, I got busy creating a page with these adorable pics, Authentique Paper's Glowing collection and Glue Arts brand adhesives.



I started by using my Glue Glider to run adhesive along the edges of my photo mat.



I then added glitter and watched the paper transform before my eyes. I loved the look of the glitter crusted edges.





Next, I used Glue Art's Raisen's to pop up the Trick or Treat title block on my page.





This was perfect because the ric-rac underneath didn't make the title bulge where the two overlapped.



Some more Raisen's for my hand cut banner.



I used the Glue Arts Mounting Squares to attach the rick-rack to my page and it held beautifully. Extreme tac just like the label states...I'm not worried about my trim shifting :)





Really, just a little piece of Heaven right here. :)



I loved the Glue Arts combopack of  Raisen's and U-Cut-It adhesive foam because I had the perfect dimensional adhesive choices all in one pack. I cut off a piece of the adhesive foam and used it to raise up my "Fright Night" label here.

I hope you enjoyed the tips I've shared here today and I know this year I'm going to make sure and scrap my Halloween pictures as soon as they're developed.

Happy Scrapping!
All paper elements used are from Authentique Paper's Glowing Collection

Trick or Treat Decor & Gathering!

This week on the Authentique Paper blog we will be sharing projects created using the Glowing Collection and Glue Arts adhesives.

Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.

Here is Jill with today's Glowing project:


Hello friends! Today I have a couple projects to share with you. The first of which uses the Glowing collection. I created a spooky piece of home decor using a paper mache hat I picked up at a craft store. I covered the hat in patterned paper and used the Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac to adhere.


To decorate the hat, I chose a tag from the Glowing Headlines and adhered it with U-Cut-It foam by Glue Arts. I also added a spooky spider, black glitter tulle, a spooky flower and a silver glitter floral spray.



Supplies:
Authentique Paper: (Glowing Patterned Paper - Orange Brocade, Black Script); Headline 2 Back
Glue Arts: Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac, U-Cut-It Foam
Pink Paislee glitter trim, Making Memories flower, paper mache hat, floral spray, black glitter tulle, spider

My second project for today uses the (just-hitting-retailers) "Gathering" collection. I am just in LOVE with the rich, warm colors that were perfect for these photos of my girls with their grandparents at the pumpkin patch.


I created a grid design and then placed several of the patterned papers in between and embellished with Icons die-cuts. 


I cut that gorgeous flower design from one of the patterned papers in the collection.


A couple of punched leaves from various patterned papers gave pops of gorgeous color to the layout.

 
Supplies:
Authentique Paper: (Gathering Patterned Paper: Grow, Harmony, Reminisce, Flourish, Together, Bloom); Icons; Classic Type; Tabloids; Expressions; Noteables; Headlines; Petite Type Square
Melissa Frances pearls, Maya Road stick pin, American Crafts chipboard alphabet, EK Success punch, Tattered Angels mist

Thanks for looking!

Halloween Banner

This week on the Authentique Paper blog we will be sharing projects created using the Glowing Collection and Glue Arts adhesives.

Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.

Here is Tifany with today's Glowing project:





Hi...it's Tifany of InkBlotsbyTRD!

Today I'd like to share with you a project I created using Authentique Paper's Glowing Collection with the help of some great adhesive products from Glue Arts.


I started out by cutting the base pieces for my banner from the Glowing Collection Foundations.
{Each piece started as a 4"x4" square, and then I trimmed it into a triangle.}


I used ExtremeTac Adhesive Squares to adhere the paper banner triangles to some canvas fabric (they definitely have an extreme hold...even on canvas!) and used my pinking shears to cut the canvas.


Each center letter is a sticker from the Glowing Classic Type and is adhered to a scalloped circle punched from the Luminous paper. This is all popped up on UCutIt.

I added some die cut embellishments from Glowing's Noteables, Icons, and Tabloids and some extra little sticker phrases from Diction. Some of the die cuts are adhered using Raisen's to add a bit of depth.


My grandma recently broke her ankle and had surgery and is stuck in rehab for a few weeks, so I plan to send this to her (along with my card from the current color challenge) to add a little Halloween flair to her room.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper (Glowing - Foundations, Luminous);

Extreme Paper Crafting

This week on the Authentique Paper blog we will be sharing projects created using the Glowing Collection and Glue Arts adhesives.

Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.

Here is Jeannie with today's Glowing project:



Hello all you paper aficionados!
I really am excited to show you what my wild imagination has come up with today.
I am very grateful to Glue Arts for their part in this post.  Without certain products of theirs, this project could have been a disaster.

Here is what I started with for this project.
A bunch of Glowing scraps, polka dot fabric and a made up pattern piece(the white paper.)


The first step is to cut out a bunch of the pattern shapes from the scraps.


Using a machine, sew all pieces together using a 1/4" seam.


Here is what the pieces look like after they have been sewn together.  Note: all pieces are sewn, right sides together.


Those of you that sew, know that clipping curves can really help when creating curves, this picture shows you what clipping curves looks like.


After the seams are all clipped, turn the piece right side out.


Using my Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac adhesive, I attached some glowing paper to 1" chipboard circles. These will become a base on the inside and outside bottoms.


Take a strong thread, I use upholstery thread, and gather the bottom tightly to close.


Take one of the chipboard circles and place it inside the piece.  This is used to help shape the piece and gives a flat surface to put some weights(beans) on top of.


I have my beans wrapped in plastic, just to keep them intact.


On top of the beans, start putting the stuffing in the piece.  Stuff and gather until you are happy with the shape. Gather the top closed in the same manner as the bottom.


To conceal the gathered top, I created lot of different tops using scraps and Glue Arts Raisen's.


For some of the tops I gathered strips of paper.


I connected the strip with the Perma Tac.


Using the Raisen's, I inserted a twig in the opening and tightened the gather strip and adhered it to the top with the Raisen's. 


Some of the tops, I made loose Yo-Yo's to conceal the openings.
The Perma Tac was instrumental for these.  I adhered the fabric to a piece of plain white paper, before die cutting the fabric.


Perfect cuts, thank to the paper staying adhered to the fabric.  
Thank you GLUE ARTS!


Here are the Yo-Yo's adhered to the tops of these.


Lastly, I took some acorns and acorn tops and some scraps.


Using the Raisen's again, I adhered the paper to the acorn pieces.
I then gathered an finished these off in the same manner as the items above.


In case you couldn't guess what I was making, here they all are.
My pumpkins.


I win the mom of the year award for these.


My big kids could not believe they were made out of paper.


My little ones could not get over the cuteness because they are so small.


These make such an eye catching display.


To get an idea how small some of them are, here is my 4 year old, holding her 2 favorite pumpkin babies.


They could almost double as earrings...


 ...earrings?  Hmmm....do I dare??


Obviously, these will not be kept outside with the real pumpkins, the overnight moisture would destroy them.


But they sure do look good with the Real thing!

 

I decided to put them on a plate and display them like this.


One last peek.


 I wouldn't dare mix with fabric and paper unless the paper is Authentique Paper
 I am starting to think of all the possibilities of things I can make now that I know I can use Authentique Paper in many of the same ways I use fabric.
Be sure to keep visiting us here on the Authentique Paper Blog to see what all of on the Design Team come up with.
Thank you again to Glue Arts for allowing me to work with their awesome adhesives for this project.
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today's post.
Supplies:
Polka Dot Fabric
Twigs
Glue Gun
Cotton Balls

Too Cute To Spook

I was so excited to break into my Glowing collection to scrap a couple pictures of my hubby, girls and nephew from Halloween last year. This collection isn't over-the-top Halloween-y and can be used for non-spooky layouts/cards/projects.

Here is the layout I created:


A little tidbit of information...The paper on the circle background started off like this:


I didn't want my layout to be too orange, so I cut out a bunch of the diamonds from the paper and only used non-predominantly orange pieces. It was a bear to put together, but I am IN LOVE with the outcome. I used Glue Arts new Glue Glider Pro to secure all of the diamonds to the paper. It kind of turned out like a big moon in the middle of the page. I love the texture that cutting out the diamonds and spacing them apart adds to the page.

I used a lot of the Glowing line's extras to embellish this page.


I also pleated some natural ribbon (secured with Glue Arts adhesive squares - LOVE THEM!!) to add some dimension and texture to the layout. One trend that I've been hesitant to tackle is the whole pin craze. I happened to have some pins in my sewing box that went with the Halloween theme, so I popped some into the ribbon. Might not be the right way (is there a right way?!), but I like how they look. I used some of Glue Arts U Cut It dimensional adhesive to make the die cut images pop out over the pleated ribbon.


How cute are these little bats?! Since I thought the big circle looked like a moon, it would only be appropriate to put a couple bats around it. I used my Silhouette to cut them out.

This is a close-up of the details on the page. I had some bat and ghost brads collecting dust that I thought would be cute in the center of the flowers. I'm really happy with the way this layout turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Glowing Banner

Around the world and back again

It's been a crazy week around the Authentique Paper office - shipping out the Free Bird series AND our brand new Collection, Gathering, finishing a re-model of our office expansion, designing some beautiful new lines for the Winter CHA show, the list goes on and on...

Before I get too far into my babbling, we told you we may have something up our sleeve in addition to the Northridge Media "Glowing" give-away. First, thank you all so much for finding us on Facebook and becoming a fan of Authentique Paper. 48 winners were chosen by Northridge, so we thought we'd round up - cap it off at 50 and give away two more "Glowing" prize packs! So, two random winners were chosen this morning:

Congratulations: Lisa Rodriguez and Nancy Beardsley Benham!!!


Please email info@authentiquepaper.com, subject line: "Two more Glowing winners!" along with your mailing address, and we'll send you Glowing kit!

In other news: I (Sam) am going to hog this blog post and share a few highlights from my trip to the Netherlands last week. I had the opportunity to participate in the Fairytale Event put on by the amazing Truike Bron, owner of the cutest, boutique paper craft store, Paper & Pictures. I was lucky enough to spend time with some of the most friendly, welcoming women I have ever met...and to top it all off, the event was held in a castle!

The Castle

Cordine & Liane (Fairytale Event participants)

We held a V.I.P. class taught by Jolan Muers - this was honestly one of the coolest classes I have personally seen using our Journey Collection. Because of the high quality, heavy weight and texture of our paper, Jolan was able to create gift boxes, using paper only! It was a great technique - thank you so much Jolan! (Check out more pics on the Authentique Paper Facebook page.)

Jolan Muers

The talented Trisha Ladouceur taught a class using "Gathering" - and wow - was it spectacular! Trisha is able to use her skills to create projects using Authentique Paper products - creativity plays a part when working with our products because we are specifically a paper company - we don't currently offer brads, ribbon, flowers, etc., but our products are always affordable (either $1 or $2 - except paper pads) and our super heavy-weight papers and die-cuts are ALL double sided! This offers versatility and endless ways to add dimension to your projects by layering and using a product as simple as pop-dots! Thank you Trisha - Team Authentique as well as your class participants all adore your work!

Trisha Ladouceur

I will admit - prior to the event, Trisha and I snuck away on a whirlwind day-trip to Paris...the day started well before the sun came up, and didn't end until the wee hours of the morning. No one will believe us when we say we spent 22 hours in Paris and saw it all, but I assure you, we did! What an adventure!

(Trisha & Sam in Paris)

After the three day event, Truike of Paper & Pictures treated us to a day in Amsterdam to cap off our trip and show us the sites and sounds of this historic city. Thank you Truike for a memorable week full of laughs, crafts and most of all wonderful memories!

Industry friends in Amsterdam


I guess I should wrap up this way-too-long blog post, but I want to extend my thanks to our loyal Authentique Paper friends, retailers and fans. We appreciate your business and value the time and energy spent, no matter your place in the paper crafting world - each of us add value and breathe life into this wonderful industry. I wish you all a fabulous weekend!

xoxo,

For my project I used the new Gathering line from Authentique Paper.

The colors of this line are gorgeous, and the beautiful textured papers make any project special.


I altered a clear paint can to create this "Choose To Be Happy" container.


Inside the container are round tags which can be used to write down some reasons to be happy.

You can write your own and pull them out as a reminder when you need a little pick me up...or you can pass out the tags around the Thanksgiving table and have every person write down one reason they are happy or thankful.


There are so many reasons to be happy.

What makes YOU happy?

Trick or Treat with Glowing!

Hello Authentique fans, it's Heather with today's post. When I was looking at the Glowing line, I knew that I really wanted to scrap some cute Halloween photos. My little girl has been making pirate noises, "Arrrrghs," for a few weeks, so I asked if she wanted to be a pirate. She was super excited about this, and true to my upbringing, I made her costume from pieces that we already had around the house. Getting her ready made for the perfect photos, and I knew that Authentique's papers would be perfect for the pictures.

I used the Grunge Orange Dot paper, but turned it so that the spiders seemed to be crawling across the paper. I also like how this weighed the bottom of the layout down.
Since Isla has just learned how to say "Trick or Treat", I had to use the back of Headline 2. I also used a lot of the Noteables, Tabloids and Icons to add more interest.
The Diction words made for easy journaling, and the Petite Type Square were perfect for the subtitle.
I also used just a little bit of Glossy Accents to make one of the Icons glow!
*****
When my layout was done, I couldn't resist continuing to play with the Glowing papers. I decided to make a fun Halloween treat! I had a few of these tubes from the $1 rack at my nearest scrapbook store. I've been wanting to play with them for awhile now. I used some black cardstock for the tag, then layered my Authentique papers in Orange Brocade and Lace Spiderweb. 
A few of the diecuts made for the perfect decoration to the tag, and a ribbon that I saved from some packaging was the perfect final touch.
 I even added an Icon to the top of the tube!
I hope that these projects inspire you to create your own Halloween fun using Glowing!
*****
Layout Supplies:
AUTHENTIQUE "Glowing" patterned papers: Orange Grunge Dot
AUTHENTIQUE "Glowing" die cuts & stickers: Glowing-Headline 2 (back), Noteables, Icons, Tabloids, Petite Type Square, Diction
Other Supplies: Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock, Glossy Accents, pen

Tag Supplies: 
AUTHENTIQUE "Glowing" patterned papers: Orange Brocade, Lace Spiderweb
AUTHENTIQUE "Glowing" die cuts: Icons, Noteables
Other Supplies: Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock, ribbon, Signo pen, tube, M&M's, Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper

"Glowing" Toilet Paper Roll Album

Hello again! It's Emily here for my 2nd post this week! This time I have a little treat for you all!!! Now some of you saw an album that I posted on the facebook page and asked how I made it... well... now you will know how to make your own album out of recycled toilet paper rolls! A few people have even asked me "where's the toilet paper rolls?" That's why these make such great gifts... no one will ever know what they are made of and when they find out, they will be surprised!

Here's the little album that I made for today using Authentique's "Glowing" line.

And here's a little step by step on how you can make one for yourself (start saving those tp rolls now! These are addicting to make!)
First, gather up some supplies. Like I said, I used the Glowing line of paper, and I find that for these, 6x6 is the best to use since the patterns are smaller. You will need at least 4 empty toilet paper rolls, acrylic paint (if you want to paint yours), paint brushes or sponges, embellishments, ribbons, binding rings, and some coordinating cardstock.

Now take your toilet paper rolls and make them flat. You can use your hands, but I find it easier to use a bone folder to crease the edges. Once you've done that, you can paint your rolls.

Cut at least 12 pieces of patterned paper, mine are 3.75 x 2 inches, but you might want to measure your rolls first, sometimes they are different in size. For the mats I cut them at 4 x 2.25 inches. After they were cut, I inked the edges of my patterned paper.

Glue your patterned paper to your cardstock mats.

This step is optional, but I like to stitch the ends of my toilet paper rolls once they are dry, just so the little inserts have a little stopper when you stick them in the sides.

Punch 2 holes and add 2 little binding rings.

Add ribbons to your binding rings and then glue down your mats to the album base. Also, use the 4 extras to stick into the little side pockets for hidden photos our journaling.

Now for the fun part... time to embellish!!! If you have any of the matching Authentique Excerpts or Notables, these are great to add throughout the album!

And that's it! Simple, right? I can't wait to see all of the toilet paper roll albums that you all come up with! Make sure you share them with us on the facebook page!

Here are some other samples of toilet paper roll albums that I've made with other Authentique papers. The possibilities are endless with these!


Products Used on "Glowing" album:
Authentique: 6x6 Glowing bundle, Glowing Noteables, Excerpts, Tabloids
May Arts Ribbon
Lime Twist Twine
Reminisce Roses

A Blushing Mini

Jennifer Priest here with a fun mini album to show for my first post here on the Authentique Paper blog. I am honored to be working with Authentique Paper as an AUTH-orized educator as well as Design Team Specialist! I have several upcoming classes featuring Authentique Paper, including my "Haunts & Whooligans" Album class this month, at stores in Southern California as well as online at My Creative Classroom. You can read more about me and my classes HERE.





I just received the new Free Bird 6x6 Paper Line and as soon as I saw the "Blush" themed papers I knew they would make the sweetest mini book. There are four 6x6 designs in this theme and that is just enough paper to make this sweet mini using a die and mat board from Sizzix.



I cut 5 of the sheets using the die--each time you cut you will create a spine, a page, and a frame. I then painted the white boards with Sandstone paint.




Then I folded up the ends of some 4"x 8" tags to make them fit the 6.5" x 4.25" dimensions of the mini album, stapling the folded-up flap to the tag to make a pocket.





I recently got my hands on some new templates -- the chevrons and geometric feel of the shapes are perfect for the modern feel of the "Blush" paper. I laid the templates over the painted pages and sprayed them with Smooch Spritz in Cashmere.





On the black pages and black tags, I used the Mini Frag Flower template to create a flower using the Sandstone paint with a foam brush. These are all of the pieces I used to create the album. I used a little paint on the edges of everything for a shabby look. It's my cheater way of distressing ;) I then followed the instructions on the die package to create the album, using my tags as pages as well.





Then I set to decorating the pages and cover.




On the cover, I sprayed a white paper flower with Smooch Spritz in Cashmere and added it to the cover with a few strips of paper, an adhesive doily diecut, buttons and sticker letters. I spritzed some white floral leaves with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil and added them under the flower. I also created the 3D roses using wool felt and a Sizzix die. I then threaded several ribbons around the spine and tied them in a bow.



I inserted several tags into each of the tag pockets I made, adding ribbons to the pages.


After all was set, I spritzed the entire book with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil, at a distance of 18" to get a fine mist. This helps pull the colors together and give the book an aged feel.







It's now ready for some gorgeous black and white photos!!


Supplies:
  • Paper, Stickers - Authentique Papers
  • Dies, - ScoreBoards XL Die, Flowers 3-D Die, and Little Sizzles Mat Board Pack by Sizzix
  • Ink - Smooch Spritz in Cashmere and Silver Foil by Clearsnap, ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in Blackbird and Grey Whale

To Be "FWEE"

These Free Bird Papers are from the Endless and Fair-Weather collections. You can purchase them in individual sheets or in a "nest". I love using architectural trace paper on my layouts (eh em, if you haven't noticed :)) so I punched out a bunch of stars and adhered them randomly on my layout. I taped some trace to a piece of cardstock and ran it through my printer. Oh and I wanted to let you know that the Free Bird papers go like a dream through my Dymo labeler. I just cut a strip of orange from the back of an Endless print and typed out (squoze) "Jonah you are". I then lightly sanded over the letters to make them pop.

Date tag is from the Journey Tabloids
These are the Journey Classic Type letters. I LOVE them!!!

Elegant Free Bird Card

Today's card is made from all the patterns and papers from the Free Bird series called BLUSH.


I have mentioned before how to utilize both side of Authentique Papers and want to remind you that the Free Bird series, is a breeze to separate the 2 side from each other.


All my layered strips are just 1 ply of the paper.


One again I have a final product that almost looks like I made it with fabric.


The BLUSH from the Free Bird series was a perfect compliment to the chandelier in the Authentique Paper set called Glowing Hours.


The phrase "Today is your day" is a NOTEABLE from the UNCOMMON line.

This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today's card.

Supplies used:
Cardstock : White & Black - American Crafts
Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper - Blush
Stamp: Itty Bitty Unity Stamp
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Rhinestone Flower: Prima
Rhinestones: Rhinestone Hues

Misc: Ribbon, trim & thread.

You've Been Boo'ed!

Have you heard about the fun Halloween neighborhood activity, "Booing" your friends?

You can go to beenbooed.com to read all about it, but basically it's a fun way to surprise your neighbors with an anonymous little treat during October.

I am beginning to prepare little treat bags for this fun activity (and other upcoming Halloween activities), and I wanted to make some out of the adorable Glowing line from Authentique.

Start with a 12" x 5" strip of double sided paper (I used the Black Gingham/Orange Brocade piece). Fold it so that the bottom portion falls about 3/4" from the top of the back side.


Punch the edges with the border punch of your choice. Then adhere down the left and right sides to form a pocket.

Begin decorating the front. I cut a 1" strip of the Newsprint paper, notched the ends, and accordian folded to create a dimensional banner. 
 Crumple it, distress the edges, and add brown ink with a dauber to age it. Then run a strip of adhesive along the back to stick it down to the pocket.

 Cut out a spiderweb from the Lace Spiderweb paper, and distress the edges. (Tip: I just use the open edge of a pair of scissors to distress quickly!)


Add dimension and sparkle to the web by applying a bit of Stickles! 

Add on a strip from the Tabloids diecuts under the banner, a piece of twine wrapped around the card, tiny clothespins, and another diecut from the Noteables collection. 
 A stick pin and a tag die cut, embellished with a few Diction stickers complete the embellishments.
 Punch two holes to string ribbon & lace through and simply knot the trimming. Fill with candy and hang on a lucky recipient's door! :)



I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and that this helps you whip up a fun few surprises for your fellow spooks this month!
