Holiday Inspiration with Authentique!

All week long we are playing with Authentique papers! How awesome is that?

We are so excited for this week and trust me when I say our papers are a match made in heaven!  But seeing is believing, right? So make sure you stick around all week long for some inpsiration and a giveaway of course!

Make sure you check out the Authentique BLOG for more ideas and a giveaway  AND their complete lines of gorgeous papers HERE. Today we are using the Seasons Autumn and the Tradition lines.


Before we give you all the goods 😉 PLEASE check out both companies on Pinterest and follow them for endless inspiration!

Authentique Paper-

First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I think is is the beautiful rich colors that are all around!  Core and Authentique are such a great pairing becuse of the beautful textures and colors that both companies have.  For today I made a fall layout with the new collection from Authentique and I paired it up with some Core Amour and Core Impressions Jillibean Soup.  The colors really mixed well and the texture it provided just made the layout!


Paper, die cut stickers, tag and title- Authentique Seasons: Autumn

 Next how about a mini album all about Tradition from Ava Gavloski. SO MANY amazing details on this gorgeous project!
Authentique is one of my favorite pattern paper companies.  They have quality weight paper with a vintage feel to their pattern’s and color tones.

Add some Clearsnap ink for the edges of the pages and this album has a great look.  Heat set the May Arts ribbon and the album has a vintage  feel.

You can see the beauty of the Core’dinations inner core with each page being embossed and sanded.  The Authentique pattern papers match perfectly with Core’dinations cardstock.
