American Crafts Blog Hop


Welcome to the American Crafts Blog Hop!! If you're interested in participating to receive the prize {two FULL lines of your choice!}, be sure to stop by the American Crafts blog to take a peek at the rules!

The design team girls were given a challenge to create a layout using all of the current lines released by American Crafts this summer!

It was a little bit of a challenge, but in the end, I really like the layout I came up with! This is a quick photo that I snapped of our niece when we were celebrating my hubby's grandmother's birthday in August! I thought her smile was just so infectious - and her eyes are just beautiful.

{Supplies: 12x12 Cardstock Kraft (71464) - AC Cardstock, Lavendar Grill Paper (35535) - Garden Cafe, Petunia's Pastries Paper (35532) - Garden Cafe, Clover Cantina Paper (35537) - Garden Cafe, Daisy's Diner Paper (35539) - Garden Cafe, Cafe Iris Paper (35541) - Garden Cafe, Babbo Natale Paper (35493) - Holly Jolly, Variety Buttons (85559) - Holly Jolly Elements, Basic (42208) - Nightfall Remarks, Halloween (42204) - Nightfall Remarks Books, Good Times (42213) - Amy Tangerine Remarks Books, Love Struck (59151) - Amy Tangerine Stamps, Slate Goodness (53249) - Thickers, Plastic Buttons (85573) - Daydreams Elements, Smile (42227) - Daydreams Remarks Books, Medium Jewel Brads (85565) - Garden Cafe Elements, Mousse (78057) - Garden Cafe Details, Trifle (78056) - Garden Cafe Details, Meringue (42211) - Garden Cafe Remarks, Delish - 1" (70073) - Garden Cafe Flair, Peachy Keen Plastic Rose Brads (85539) - Elements, Cherry (59520) - Pigment Ink, Clear (27170) - Zing! Embossing Powder}

I'm also offering up a small giveaway here on my blog:
A set of the Love Struck stamps from the Amy Tangerine line! I used the frame to layer underneath my little cluster of goodies beside my title... Comments for my giveaway will stay open until Tuesday evening - and I'll draw and post a winner on Wednesday!

Next stop, my sweet friend Leslie Ashe! Enjoy the Hop and have a wonderful weekend!
