The One with American Crafts Summer 2010 CHA Sneaks


Friday, July 16, 2010

It's no secret: American Crafts is my favorite scrapbooking supplier. I am quite biased after working there for 20 months. But it is what it is and I am so happy that I still have connections via the Contributing Design Team. Every day this week on the AC blog they've been showing sneak peaks of their newest lines and you'll have to excuse me while I wipe up the puddle of drool that's forming on my desk. I love it all that much.

The first line they revealed is Dear Lizzy: Enchanted. Elizabeth Kartchner (with the help of In-House Designers Richard and Clairice) created a beautiful and whimsical line. Things I can't wait to get my hands on:
The patterned paper

These plastic rose brads:

This new product called Bits:

And then there's the latest and greatest Halloween line: Boo! I love Halloween. I do I do I do.

These Thickers look especially fun!

The line revealed today is Dear Lizzy Christmas. It's retro, vintage, nostalgic... all those things that are super "in-style" right now.

There's just one more section to be shown tomorrow, a new Valentine line called Love. An inside source (ALISHA!) tells me, and I quote, "it's the best line EVER!!!!". I'll update this post with pics tomorrow.

Also American Crafts related, they showcased these three ads the other day and I'm just blown away. Clairice designed them. That girl is something else. I remember the book she made at the bookbinding workshop I did last year. It was stellar. I wish I had an ounce of her talent :)

I am so incorporating these designs into my pages.
Thanks American Crafts for being the cheese to my mac. The peanut butter to my jelly. The yin to my yang. All that jazz.
