AC Blog Hop!


Good morning! Welcome to stop number 4 on the American Crafts blog hop! Our challenge was to create a layout combining the new, summer 2011 collections.


Honestly, it was way more fun than challenging since AC collections combine so easily! Here's what I came up with for the blog hop challenge.



Supplies: 12x12 Cardstock Kraft (71464) - AC Cardstock, 12x12 Cardstock Cherry  (71026) - AC Cardstock, 12x12 Cardstock Peacock (71471) - AC Cardstock, Daisy's Diner Paper (35539) - Garden Cafe, Work In Progress Paper (35546) - Amy Tangerine, Is It Any Wonder Fabric Paper (35556) - Amy Tangerine, Wishing (42216) - Remarks, Good Times (42213) Remarks, Amy (42212) Remarks, Basic Chalkboard (42208)- Remarks, Spice (72016) - Delights, Spells (72015) - Delights, Elm Vanilla (53216) - Thickers, Nightfall (89409) - Ribbon, Garden Cafe (85564) - Elements, Nightfall (85561) - Elements, Baby Boy Mini Brads (85383) - Elements, Tropicals Mini Brads (85377) - Elements, Primaries (85375) - Elements, Dot Glue Runner (61721) - This to That

I love the fabric paper in the Amy Tangerine collection. Did you know that you can use a circle cutter on it to easily cut perfect circles?! I was afraid the small blade wouldn't cut through the fabric cleanly, but it did! I simply flipped the paper over (fabric-side down) and cut my little circle that you see here. Easy-peasy and a perfect circle accent!


I created my own little star accent to compliment the small Amy Tangerine star sticker. I simple punched a circle from the Work In Progress paper (blue) and added a star punched from Peacock cardstock, which matches the Amy Tangerine collection perfectly!

And aren't the little chalkboard labels, from the Night Fall collection, the bomb?! I do so love these. I added the letter "A" to this label using chalk. A white opaque pen would work great too.


I also wanted to mention that I swapped out the cute "Autumn" sticker on the gold Delights accent for the fun fabric heart sticker from the Amy Tangerine collection. I simply placed the "Autumn" sticker back on the carrier sheet to use later! 


Now for a giveaway! I have this super cute set of Halloween stamps from the Nightfall collection to give away compliments of American Crafts. If you'd like a chance to win these stamps simply leave a comment on this post, along with your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner.


Only one entry per person please. You have until Thursday, September 22nd at midnight EST to enter. I will randomly draw one winner and post their name here on Friday, September 23rd.

Next stop on the blog hop: Corrie Jones

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by all 20 designer's blogs and then go back to the AC blog post for a chance to win two entire lines!
