Announcing two brilliant new sets of Thickers - in DuoTone Glitter and Foil!

Thickers_August2011_EC7

DuoTone Glitter Thickers

Whether you're addicted to glitter or just want to add some sparkle to your life, these new Thickers are perfect for every scrapbooker and cardmaker. With two tones of chunky glitter on each letter, there's no mistaking that these letters will bring extra WOW to any project. Both fonts come in silver and gold, just in time for the holidays — may your season be merry and, now, even brighter.

Foil Thickers

Beautiful colors of foil (four colors per font) and two font faces to choose from make these Thickers impossible to resist. Clean and crisp sans serif letters make an ideal go-to font, while the serif choice adds some whimsy to any project.

New Chap collection and a contest!

   MainBlogChap

 

Introducing a sophisticated and charming new collection from American Crafts called CHAP!

Chap Paper

With its warm colors and designs inspired by clothing fabric, the new Chap line has just enough pop to make it perfect for autumn projects. A subtle vignette effect adds depth to the patterned paper. And the small-to-medium patterns are just right for scrapbooking the boys in your life.

Chaps_Paper_EC

Paper

 

Epoxy Brads, Printed Variety Tabs, and Delights

Paper is just the beginning of the new Chap line. To add dimension try three of American Crafts newest creations: Epoxy Brads, with a metal rim, patterned interior, and glossy finish; Printed Variety Tabs, which turn a commonplace filing cabinet item into an uncommonly perfect addition to any project; and Paper Flowers, which allow any crafter to have whimsical, premade rosettes at her fingertips without the fuss.

TagsTabsFlowers

 

Foam and Printed Foil Thickers

Although those windy fall days may whip your hair into a mess, the Thickers in the Chap line will blow your socks off — in a good way. The foam letters, in a bold serif font, come in the complimentary colors of Corn and Surf. And check out the Printed Foil Letter Stickers. They seemingly jump off the page, with a 3-Dimensional design and classy foil print. These Thickers are in a league of their own.

Even More

In addition to these fun products, the Chap line will also include ribbons, buttons, cloth brads, journaling cards and more. Check out these great creative samples made using this cool new line...

Daydreams Tutorial by Melissa Mann

Melissa Mann is going to show us how to create this adorable candy box today, featuring Daydreams:

15

Candy Box by Melissa Mann

Supplies: Wishful Day Paper (35610) - Daydreams, Pleasant Day Paper(35609) Daydreams, Chestnut (58409) - Premium Ribbon, Chipper (78061) - Details, Printed Variety Tags (77263) - Bits, Friends (42228) - Remarks; Other: Gift box, candy, baker's twine

Melissa Mann

Step 1: Assemble your candy box.

1 

Step 2: Cut patterned paper to fit the sides and top of your box. I cut mine to 3" square.

2

Step 3: Adhere the paper to the sides of the box.

3

Step 4: Adhere a different patterned paper to the top and underside of the top of the box.

4

Step 5: Cut a piece of ribbon and adhere it to the bottom of the box.

5

Step 6: Cut 3" pieces of paper from the tearaway strip at the bottom of a patterned paper block and adhere them to the top rim of the box.

6

Step 7: Cut three strips of paper measured at 1.5 x 6" and fold them accordion style.

7

Step 8: Adhere each end of the folded piece to each other and create a circle.

8

Step 9: Punch out a piece of scrap cardstock and press the folded piece of paper down to create a circle then glue it in place.

9

Step 10: Gather a few embellishments. I picked out some Details, a piece of baker's twine, and a Bits tag.

10

Step 11: Thread your baker's twine through the tag then put a dot of glue down on the top of the box and stick the ends of the twine in it. Place your folded paper embellishment on top of this and adhere it with a strong adhesive.

11

Step 12: Punch out a circle of patterned paper and pick out a Detail. Glue down the circle on top of the folded paper embellishment and then adhere the Detail on top of that.

12
 13

Step 13: Open the box up and fill it with candy.

14

All finished!

15

More Daydreams projects are in the works for tomorrow!

Garden Café Tutorial by Jenny Chesnick

Jenny Chesnick is going to teach us how to make this adorable paper cuckoo clock today:

Cuckooclock

Cuckoo Clock by Jenny Chesnick

Supplies: Carnation Corner Paper (35538) - Garden Cafe, Clover Cantina Paper (35537) - Garden Cafe, Daisy's Diner Paper (35539) - Garden Cafe, Cafe Iris Paper (35541) - Garden Cafe, Plastic Buttons (85564) - Elements, Savor (42210) - Remarks, Delish (70073) - Flair, Blossom (71017) - Cardstock, White (58477) - Basics Ribbon Spools, Sunflower (58291) - Premium Ribbon, Dimensional Dots (61709) - This to That; Other supplies: Hot glue gun, Silhouette SD

Jenny

1

I started by cutting out four patterns of the clock itself. Two patterned papers and two cardstock. I then rough cut two sheets of chipboard to line between my patterned paper and cardstock. This just helps the clock be a bit sturdier.

2

Next I sandwiched the chipboard between one piece of cardstock and one piece of patterned paper. Then put the cardstock toward the back of the clock so the pretty patterned paper shines bright.

3

Next I cut a strip of two pieces of chipboard at 12x2, scored and folded in at 1”, 7” and trimmed off the excess to create one side. The other side I left the ends a bit longer at 3”, so cut and score at 3”, 9”. You should end up with 6” on the long side and 3” on the short side.

4

Using my hot glue gun I attached the end of the short side and covered the chipboard with paper.

5

Next I trimmed down a piece of cardstock into approximately 4x2 and 2x2 strips and folded them half. I attached them to either side of the center of the clock. (As shown) this is going to give you something for your clock to attach to. I repeated this on both sides.

6

Using my hot glue gun again I attached the cardstock flaps to the base of the clock and repeated again on the top piece. This creates your 3D clock.

7.
8

Once your clock is built it’s time for the fun part of dressing it up of course! The pattern I used came with some fun items for the front of my clock. I used these parts along with the awesome embellishments from Garden Café to finish up my project!

Cuckooclock

One of my favorite parts of the clock is the “hands” I took inspiration from the stick set and cut my own knife and spoon to use as the hands. I used lots of this to that dots on the clock to keep it very dimensional and interesting.

Stay tuned for more awesome Garden Cafe projects tomorrow!

3) I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was in elementary school - I even sketched my own collections. But I didn't learn how to sew until I began sewing on paper!
4) I taught myself how to ride my bike without training wheels at age five and no parents around. I can be very driven. :)
5) I am a Starbucks addict. Iced, Venti, 3-pump vanilla, nonfat, light-ice latte, please.

And this is Amy's scrap space:

Cutie Pie Notebook by Rahel Menig

Supplies: Falling For You Fabric Paper (35559) - Amy Tangerine, Is It Any Wonder Fabric Paper (35556) - Amy Tangerine, Yes Peas Paper (35549) - Amy Tangerine, Geyser (71641) - Cardstock, Happy Day Paper (35600) - Day Dreams, Petuna's Pastries Paper (35532) Garden Cafe, Rose's Kitchen Paper (35540) - Garden Cafe, Love Struck (59151) - Stamps

Rahel created a YouTube video so you can see exactly how she put together her fabulous mini album:

Here are five fun facts about Rahel:

1) I have a spider and not-attached hair phobie ;)
2) If you're looking for the queen of smilies and 'heee's', well, this girl has to be it... My blog often looks like this: :D :D :D heeeeheeeeee :D 
3) I am a jeans girl by heart, but don't own many and usually wear my 'at the moment favorite' til they go kaputt!
4) Don't know if that's a girl's problem in general, but I have the hardest of times to decide between two things. If I have an option and have to pick one, I usually get frustrated cause I just can't decide...
5) I have a soft spot for road trips. Last September Adrian and I drove all the way around the USA. We were 29 days on the road and put 10,645 miles behind us. Adrian likes to say 'we took the long way home' how true, how true.

And here's a looksy at Rahel's scrap space:

Here are five fun facts about Shimelle:

1) Discovered scrapbooking while rehearsing a play about three sisters who keep a family scrapbook that seems to only contain sad news.
2) Taught ballet classes at the YMCA to help pay for college.
3) Loves to travel, but hates boats. Or more accurately, hates that she gets seasick in about twenty-two seconds.
4) Lives just a few steps off the Prime Meridian and has to cross it pretty much every day, so technically she lives in the eastern hemisphere but gets her groceries in the western hemisphere.
5) Collects old copies of Through the Looking Glass whenever she visits somewhere new (or her local antique market).

Spotlight on Jamie Harper

Today were spotlighting Jamie Harper!

Jamie Harper

AC garden cafe you're my sm

You're My by Jamie Harper

Supplies: Rose's Kitchen Paper (35540) - Garden Cafe, Petunia's Pastries Paper (35532) - Garden Cafe, Poppy's Pub Paper (35542) - Garden Cafe, Delish (70073) - Flair, Decorative Tags (77256) - Bits, Medium Jewel Brads (85565) - Elements, Meringue (42211) - Remarks, Sweet (53090) - Thickers, Dots Permanent (61721) - This To That, 3D foam dots (61709) - This To That

Here are five fun facts about Jamie:

1) I like to scrapbook when no one is around because then I am free to dance and sing at the top of my lungs (and I do not sing well).
2) I am a photographer.
3) I am a scrapbook hoarder (I will even save scraps that are .5x6).
4) I am a neat freak, even if I am using the same supplies for three layouts after each one I will clean up and then start the second. I can't seem to focus when there is a mess. I think the mess monster takes my creative mojo, so I always start fresh. Maybe that is why my scrapbook style is clean hmmmmmm.
5) I am a very fast scrapbooker. I think the reason why is that I never hum and ha over a layout, I just go and do it, not moving things around the page, no second guessing. If I end up not liking something that I have already done I just cover it, or make it work in a new way. Some of my best layouts have come from mistakes.

And this is a peak at Jamie's scrapping area:

Mini Layouts and Cards

Congratulations to the winner of the Page Kits, Samantha T:

Screen Shot 2011-07-31 at 8.31.18 PM Screen Shot 2011-07-31 at 8.31.23 PM Screen Shot 2011-07-31 at 8.31.28 PMThanks for all of your comments - they're always fun to read and get to know you better!

Maggie Holmes and Melanie Louette finish up the week with a mini layout, card, and album:

Maggie says, "It was fun creating projects with a 'mini' theme this month! I found that the layout and card came together so quickly because there was less space to work with! It is also a fun way to display a single photo that is smaller in size!

MaggieSupplies: Easy Peasy Paper (35382) - Peachy Keen, Easy As Pie Paper (35393) - Peachy Keen, Cool Cat Paper (35389) - Peachy Keen, Dreamy Violet Paper (35251) - Dear Lizzy Enchanted, Thing of Beauty Paper (35370) - Peachy Keen, Super Swell (42193) - Remarks, Twist (72008) - Delights, Swing (72003) - Delights, Dear Lizzy Enchanted Mini Pearl Brads (85519) - Elements, Pastels Medium Jewel Brads (85286) - Elements, Charcoal (6113) - Memory Markers

I cut one flower out of the Dear Lizzy die cut paper and I love how intricate and detailed it looks! The sticker became the perfect title for my page and gave me a great jumping off point for my journaling, that I wrote around the edges of the page to finish it off.

Next up is my card and again I love how quickly it came together. I took the button off of the pinwheel embellishment and added the sticker to the center of it. Then I punched some small butterflies and added some bling with the tiny rhinestones. 

_DSC9837 I’m thinking that I will keep doing some of these “mini” pages from now on and mix them right into my regular albums in between the larger 12x12 pages. It’s a fun way to change it up!!

MelanieMelanie 2 Cedar River Trail Paper (35359) - Campy Trails, Elk Creek Trail Paper (35354) - Campy Trails, Appleton Cove Paper (35348) - Campy Trails, Timberline Resort Paper (35357) - Campy Trails, Deer Creek Paper (35349) - Campy Trails, 4x6 Cards (64009) – JustWrite, Hike (42190) – Remarks, Meadow Mediterranean (53165) – Thickers, Squirrel (77250) – Patchems, Decorative Tags (85534) – Bits, Path (42189) – Remarks, Pine Borders (53167) – Thickers, Hannah & Henry (42541) – Remarks, Hot Dog (89397) – Ribbon, Pastel White (62585) - Gel Pen, .05 Black (62321) - Precision Pen, Tent (59141) - Clear Stamps, Chestnut (27140) - Zing!, Chestnut (59512) - Pigment Ink, Small Acrylic Block (59011) - Acrylic Blocks, Zap! Heat Tool (90502) - Zing!, Adhesive Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That

Melanie shares, "My son recently went to his first weeklong Cub Scout camp and I wanted to make him a little souvenir about his experiences - he had an amazing time! He has a small shelf above his bunk bed where he keeps his ‘treasures’ so a mini album was a good solution for that small space. To make the album, I cut recycled chipboard into 3x3” squares, stamped the front and back cover with the woodgrain stamp, and then embossed it with Chestnut Zing! to give it a rustic feel. I cropped and printed out my photos to the same 3x3” size, added the paper and embellishments (which could not have been more perfect for the theme!) and then just punched a hole through the corners. This little album was a blast to make and my son adores it."

Today marks the last day with projects from our 2010-2011 Contributing Design Team! We wish them the best and have enjoyed all of their talent! Next week we'll be starting with fresh new faces and projects from our 2011-2012 Contributing Design Team!
