American Crafts Scrapbooking Blog Hop

american crafts scrapbooking blog hop
american crafts scrapbooking blog hop
Hello there hoppers – today we’re hopping through the American Crafts design team blogs and we have all been set the same challenge: make a layout with something from each of the new lines: Amy Tangerine, Daydreams, Garden Cafe, Nightfall and Hollyday!

scrapbook page - american crafts Supplies include Sarah Script letter stickers in white (4133), Fancy glitter Thickers in strawberry (53111), Goodness Thickers in slate (53249), glitter edged buttons (85558), Elements buttons (85573), Savor Remarks stickers (42210), Rose’s Kitchen paper (35540), Joyful Day paper (35603), Fine Day paper (35606), Autumn Cider paper (35519), Yes Peas paper (35549), Wanderlust paper (35548), Cafe Iris paper (35541), all by American Crafts.

I love the birthday colour scheme that comes from a combination of the Amy and Garden papers, and the b-sides from Daydreams are the most versatile patterns ever – tiny stripes, polka dots and grids. Nightfall includes some very versatile cream patterns. Then I added stickers from Garden Cafe plus buttons from Daydreams and Hollyday. I love the glitter detail on the Christmas button pack. If you stopped by earlier today, you might see a resemblance – this is one example for this weekend’s scrapbook starting point. More striped-background wonderment!

There are plenty of chances to win American Crafts prizes throughout the blog hop today. Leave a comment on this post to enter the drawing for a pack of adorable Details embellishments. Hop through the designers’ blogs for additional chances to win then enter the big drawing at the AC Studio blog where someone will win two full collections of crafty goodness! Both the big AC giveaway and my giveaway are open until Wednesday the 21st of September 2011, 9am Pacific, which is 5pm here in the UK.

    Fantastic colours on this page!

  245. ruth Says:

    I have loved AC for a long time, but I must admit i was getting quite distracted by all the new lines that are out and about and a combo of Lizzy, you and Amy Tan have really turned my eyes back in the AC direction (of course thickers were ALWAYS on my shopping list…) thanks for such great layouts with AC, you are so amazing, Shimelle.
