I am so so soooo thrilled to be teaching this Workshop at the Winter CHA Show on Sunday January 29th! Authentique Paper's new Celebrate line is perfectly cheerful, with pops of red-orange and lovely teal. The textured matte finish of the paper and stickers are accented by a touch of sparkle from embellishments and spray inks that we'll be using in class. 

CHA Workshop 

January 29, 2011


CHA Trade Show, Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA

Room: 212

Difficulty: Intermediate
Supplies: Scissors or paper trimmer and liquid adhesive

Create a handmade mixed media scrapbook using the the Zutter Bind It All machine and the latest releases from Authentique Paper. We'll experiment with various ink products from Clearsnap, including Smooch Spritz, to create depth, shine, and pattern on the album pages in conjunction with Authentique Paper's richly textured paper lines. Inspire your customers with unique techniques and money saving ideas.

Instructor(s): Jennifer Priest
Sponsor(s): Authentique Paper LLC, Zutter, Xyron, Clearsnap, Want2Scrap, ilovetocreate.com, hydrangeahippo.etsy.com

The Workshop is sold out so we thought it would be fun to share a few sneak peeks of the inner pages with you on the Authentique Paper blog (and my blog too)–this is the only place you can see this book!! Here we go…

The 12×12 stickers for this collection are awesome!!! There is something for any occasion you might have to celebrate, and then some.

One of my favorite things about the collection, which we will discuss in class, is that the “red” can vary between red and coral, depending on the embellishments chosen. We use both red and coral in the class for a really festive look.

This paper also “plays well” with vintage elements, like doilies and dictionary paper. The pops of black and grey play off the colors for a masculine effect.

And finally, the Collection lends itself nicely to the addition of a little navy, which we'll add with spray ink and unique trims in the class.

I hope you enjoyed the peek into the book we'll be creating at the show this weekend. If you were unable to join us, be sure to stop by the booth to say “hello” and follow us on Facebook!
