American Crafts, Amy Tangerine Sketchbook | Monday Card Madness #82

It’s that time of year where the shoes come off and the flip flops reign. That feeling of complete footy freedom is exactly the feeling that today’s steal, the American Crafts, Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Collection instills on my crafty heart. Whimsical, fun, slightly 70s and fancy free! Makes me wanna throw on my long boho chic dress and go running with my flip flops through fields of flowers as if I had not a care in the world. Or I could use the papers to pretend that life were always that simple. Seems like a good trade for me! :)

What is simple however, is how easily the Sketchbook collection made putting together the cards for this week’s Monday Card Madness.

I love the embellishments in this collection. I kind of think that I have an embellishment addiction. Seems like I say the same thing every week, but it’s true! Embellishments make me happy. Don’t you just love how the 3D floral embellishments and the satin brads really finish off these cards?

The worst part about making these cards was find the other pack of really cute embellies buried on my desk after I’d cleaned up! :)

Guess I’ll have to put this collection to work making a layout about my biggie girlies or even myself! Such a let loose, uninhibited collection!

Now I think it may be time to host another cards swap here at ScrapbookSteals. What do you say? Post here and give me a thumbs up if you’d like to play and if there is enough interest, we’ll get the ball rolling.

Check in tomorrow for another awesome manufacturer blog posting, Wednesday for the beginning of our Turquoise gem series of Mid Week Mojo and this month’s amazing guest sketcher, Friday for a pretty swell guest blogger as well as Friday night for our online crop to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day (details coming soon)!

Yup. It’s a fun week for sure!

Take care and scrap happy! <3

American Crafts Amy Tangerine | Monday Card Madness #67

I am so beyond excited about today’s steal, the Amy Tangerine Collection by American Crafts. This collection is the perfect combination of colors and designs, whimsy and fun and the add on option of mixed tape? Well, it’s a must!

I had so much fun creating cards for today’s sketch. I wanted to focus my design this week on the mixed tape. I love mixed tape and the different designs made for a perfect embellishment border down the side of my card.

I then switched things up a little bit and added some strips of the fabric paper. Soooooooo cute!

I seriously couldn’t help myself since it’s such an amazing collection to use, and made two more cards not following any sort of sketch at all.

I’m so excited that a few more people have expressed interest in this quarter’s card swap. It’s not too late! We’d love to see your creations and make this current swap a huge success.

American Crafts Amy Tangerine Thickers | Monday Card Madness #63

Ahhhhh Thickers. I love that word. I love the visual it brings of rainbow and sparkles, fonts and textures. In short, I love Thickers and my guess is that you do too! And if you haven’t yet seen the designs in today’s steal, the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Thickers collection then you are in for a treat. The designs, the faux stitching, the fonts, the different mediums mixed with the variety of colors, well, it makes me go weak in the knees!

I kept this week’s sketch pretty basic because I wanted to keep the focus of the design on the block for the Thickers.

Don’t you agree that the Amy Tangerine Thickers, totally make these cards?

Don’t forget your challenge of sending out joy! I know it makes me so happy when I receive some good old-fashioned, handmade, snail mail. It’s such a great way to brighten someones day and put your creations to use as well!
