BOO! by Patricia Roebuck

"This scary little card started with the “boo!” sticker. It had to have a ghost with it. For an interesting background, I cut out the spiderweb from the cardstock base, backed it with the Molasses Cookies Paper, then cut another smaller spiderweb from the Candy Corn Paper to layer on top. I added a few splatters of mist across the card to finish."

American-Crafts-AnnouncementWe are so excited to share our latest news with you today! American Crafts has partnered with Becky Higgins to manufacture, sell, and distribute Project Life brand products to retailers, bringing this popular scrapbooking method to more people in more places. 

  ProjectLife_EyeCandyIn case you aren’t familiar with Project Life, it’s a popular back-to-basics approach to memory keeping that Becky Higgins created to simplify the process, allowing you to complete more pages in less time. Project Life’s core offering consists of 12x12 D-Ring Albums, a Core Kit filled with designer journaling cards, and big packs of Photo Pocket Pages. If you want to expand past the core system with decorative touches, more products are available for just that.

Becky will continue to oversee the design, development, and marketing of all Project Life products, as well as independently operate her website and blog. Project Life products will still be available direct-to-consumer online as they have been since 2009, and with this new partnership, the products will also be available in scrapbooking stores near you!

Soho Garden Guest Designer: Cathy Pascual

A big round of applause for the winner of the Soho Garden line, Kelly Oblak (please email me at acstudioblog@gmail.com to claim your prize!):

Picture 1

6a00d8357de06869e20167685cbc7c970b-500wi

The Guest Designer for Soho Garden Week is Cathy Pascual!

Cathyavataretsy
Short bio: Cathy, designer and owner of Catshy Crafts, is a crafter at heart, memory keeper for life, and lover of handmade and DIY. Through her hand-crafted goods, photography, and paper and digital scrapbooking, she loves to celebrate the everyday and the special days of her life. She lives in a 1959 red rambler in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her indie game developer husband, two darling daughters, and calico cat.

How did you get started scrapbooking? I have always held on to bits of paper and ephemera, torn out magazine pages, and journaled from a young age. But it wasn't until I got married that I started taking photos more seriously. When I had kids, I became a full-blown scrapbooker, buying my first supplies from Lisa Bearnson on QVC!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? I love the patterned paper from American Crafts! It is graphic and colorful and so versatile.

Zaralovesart_CPascualWEB
ZARA LOVES ART by Cathy Pascual

I created my pinwheel flowers using a scoring tool and the centers of each flower were made by layering scalloped shapes I punched from the AC textured cardstock and then hand-sewed with a button. To keep the photos grouped and anchored together, I added two ribbons across the bottom as well as added bits of color around the edges.

Supplies: Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, West Broadway Paper (35839) - Soho Garden, High Line Park Paper (35831) - Soho Garden, Lafayette Paper (35833) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Stickers (42273) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Red (42269) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Teal (42270) - Remarks, Soho Garden Ribbon Card (84929) - Ribbon

Tinylittledancer_CPascual2WEB
HELLO TINY DANVER by Cathy Pascual

I loved the black and white floral paper and wanted to use it as my background paper so I tried to bring the flowers to life by layering with the dimensional flowers and sticker. I also used this space on my page to add atitle so all the focus is in the center of the layout along with the photos. To anchor my photos I used photo corners and fabric strips.

Supplies: High Line Park Paper (35831) - Soho Garden, Lafayette Paper (35833) - Soho Garden , Tribeca Paper (35836) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Cardstock Stickers (42273) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Teal (42270) - Remarks,  Gramercy Park Paper (35829) - Soho Garden, Grande Street Paper (35830) - Soho Garden, Bellerose (85609) - Flower Shoppe Molded Paper Flowers, Soho Garden Fabric Stickers Bleeker Street (42272) - Remarks, Soho Garden Layered Embellishments (85606) - Details,  Soho Garden Layered Chipboard Stickers (42271) - Remarks

Youaretearific_CPascualWEB
YOU ARE TEA-RIFIC by Cathy Pascual

I loved the packaging that the ribbon came in so I decided to make a card by layering the back with cardstock and adding another teacup dimensional sticker on top. I then layered on green cardstock which opens up as well so there is lots of room to write inside.

Supplies: Orchard Street Paper (35828) - Soho Garden, High Line Park Paper (35831) - Soho Garden, Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Cardstock Stickers (42273) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Green (42270) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Red (42269) - Remarks, Soho Garden Layered Embellishments (85606) - Details, Soho Garden Ribbon Card (84929) - Ribbon 

Youaremysunshine_CPascualWEB
YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE by Cathy Pascual

I wanted most of the focus to be on the enlarged photo so I followed the natural line of my daughter's line of sight and made a beautiful bouquet of flowers in the corner to house my title and journaling. I noticed that my daughter had a "bow" motif going on - on her shirt, in her hair, even a bow/ribbon on her balloon so I repeated that motif in my embellishments - the grosgrain ribbon and the embellishment on the top reminds me of a bow.

Supplies: Orchard Street Paper (35828) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Cardstock Stickers (42273) - Remarks, Soho Garden Alpha Stickers Green (42270) - Remarks, Bellerose (85609) -  Flower Shoppe Molded Paper Flowers, Soho Garden Fabric Stickers Bleeker Street (42272) - Remarks, Soho Garden Layered Embellishments (85606) - Details, Soho Garden Layered Chipboard Stickers (42271) - Remarks, Soho Garden Ribbon Card (84929) -  Ribbon, Garden District (59164) - Stamps, Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, Black (62600) - Stamp Marker

Lifeisgood_CPascualWEB
LIFE IS GOOD by Cathy Pascual

Repeating the flower motif, I used lots of different types of flowers: pinwheel flower, floral paper, stamped paper, and the flower tag.

Supplies: Gramercy Park Paper (35829) - Soho Garden, Orchard Street Paper (35828) - Soho Garden, Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Decorative Layered Tags (85607) - Bits, Soho Garden Ribbon Card (84929) - Ribbon

EMBROIDERY HOOP ART & FLOWERS by Cathy Pascual

For my Etsy shop, Catshy Crafts, I make embroidery hoop art using felt and linen. When I recently saw a tutorial on how to use paper in an embroidery hoop I knew I had to try it! These embroidery hoops are not only decorative (they are meant to be displayed as a grouping along with the flowers) but can be functional as well. The ribbon is not totally glued down to the paper so that the photo may be taken out and a new one put in. I could also put a sweet note or journaling card in the "note to self" hoop art.

Supplies: Orchard Street Paper (35828) - Soho Garden, Nolita Paper (35835) - Soho Garden, Greenwich Village Paper (35838) - Soho Garden, Canal Street Paper (35837) - Soho Garden, Soho Garden Cardstock Stickers (42273) - Remarks, Soho Garden Ribbon Card (84929) - Ribbon, Soho Garden Flower Shoppe Molded Paper Flowers (85609) - Bellerose, Soho Garden Layered Chipboard Stickers (42271) - Remarks

Ready Set Go Guest Designer: Nicole Nowosad

A big congrats to the winner of the Ready Set Go collection, Cassandra Darwin, (please email us atacstudioblog@gmail.com to claim your prize!):

The talented Nicole Nowosad is the Guest Designer for Ready Set Go week!

Nicole headshot
Short bio: I am a 30-something, proud Canadian living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When I am not working full time for the Canadian government, you can find me cheering from the sidelines at my two boys' (10 & 7) soccer games or playing dress up with our 3 year old princess. If I had to describe my scrapping style, I would say it is eclectic. My favorite go-to supply is patterned paper – I love to cut it up, punch it out, and try new things/different ways to work it! I love lots of colour and a little sparkle can’t hurt either!

How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking after a home party many, many moons ago! I didn’t get serious about it until I found the internet and then I could not be stopped - I was completely hooked and haven’t looked back since.

What is your favorite American Crafts product? Just one? Hmm, I can’t choose just one so, patterned paper and Thickers!

Be Yourself_72dpi
BE YOURSELF by Nicole Nowosad

Designer note: Create a whimsical page border with scraps of patterned paper by running your scissors along the edge of the paper and zipping it along quickly. This creates a fun, wavelike effect perfect to add when you don’t have a border punch handy.

Leahf_amyt_tags_475
ALTERED TAGS by Leah Farquharson

Supplies: Think Good Thoughts Paper (35766) - Ready Set Go, Black (71082) - Cardstock, Denim (59502) - Pigment Ink, Ready Set Go Value Ribbon Pack (89428) - Premium Ribbon, Kringle & Co Value Ribbon Pack (89430) - Premium Ribbon, Neutrals Medium Brads (85396) - Elements, Field House Paper Leaves (85592) - House, Stitched Vellum (85593) - Details, Hey There (59224) - Stamps, Baxter Brown/Blue Letter Stickers (42254) - Remarks, Cute Overload (42253) - Remarks, Sure Thing (42255) - Remarks, Delighted Accents & Phrases (42252) - Remarks, Ready Set Go Printed Cardstock Shapes (85589) - Bits; Craft supplies: manila tags, watercolors, sewing machine, thread

Leah

For the chevron painted background, start by creating the zig zags in green.
Leahf_chevrontag

Alternate several other colors in between.

Laehf_chevrontag2

Splatter a few specks of black.

Leahf_chevrontag3

After the watercolors dry, stamp hearts using the Hey There stamps set and some denim colored ink. Cut five strips of ribbon and attach them in the middle of the tag. Mount the die cut piece on top with foam dots, and embellish.

Leahf_chevrontag4

For the Hello tag, dab some light green watercolor on the right side of the tag in the middle. Splatter with red paint.

Leahf_hello_tag_watercolor

Allow the paint to dry a bit and stamp the Hello word from the Hey There stamp set. Cut out a word bubble from the Think Good Thoughts paper and stamp part of the Hello word on the edge. Mount on dimensional adhesive and attach to tag, layering the color wheel die cut, heart, ribbon, and ampersand. Attach the man/woman to the corner and the real life sticker to the top.
Leahf_hello_tag

For the Autumn tag, create a "sunset" look on the background of the tag by blending two different colors of orange and yellow paint. Allow to dry.

Leahf_autumn_watercolor

Stitch the blue banner sticker on the left side and attach transparent letter stickers on the bottom. Layer a tree that you've die cut from cardstock along with ribbon, leaves, hearts, and a camera sticker.

_eahf_autumn_tag

Leahf_amyt_tags_475

Quick, easy, fun, unique, and beautiful tags made in a snap!

5th & Frolic Guest Designer: Cassandra Cyr

Congrats to the winner of the 5th & Frolic line, Lindsay Lord Doucet:

6a00d8357de06869e2016768538903970b-500wi

I'm excited to introduce the 5th & Frolic Guest Designer, Cassandra Cyr:

That's Me, Cassie!

Short bio: Hi, my name is Cassandra Cyr and I'm thrilled to be guest designing for American Crafts! I live in CT with my 2 year old son, Charlie, and my husband, Robb. I work full time as a Scientist and my husband is a Photographer, which coincides beautifully with my love of scrapbooking! When I'm not papercrafting I like to cook and catch up on TV shows (I love Breaking Bad, the Big Bang Theory, and Dexter!).

How did you get started scrapbooking? I first started scrapbooking 5 years ago when my husband and I were engaged; I wanted a way to document our relationship together that incorporated all of our funny stories and scrapbooking fit the bill!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? Thickers, of course!

Simply Enchanting

Love That Bow Tie
LOVE THAT BOW TIE by Cassandra Cyr

2 PEAS(E) IN A POD by Cassandra Cyr

I love the "Little Moments Lane" paper, each polaroid frame is a perfect home to a little embellishment cluster! In case you are wondering about the title of this layout, my son's Great Grandpa's last name is Pease, so I thought the play on words for the title was just perfect :)

Ombre Butterfly Wreath
BUTTERFLY WREATH by Cassandra Cyr

Inspiration piece

1) Gather all your supplies and let’s get started!

2) Fold a 12 x 12” sheet of cardstock in half and hand cut a heart; this will be your base.

3) Trim several different papers (I used 10 for my heart) at 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1” wide. Then trim in both short and long pieces.

Dream1

4) Start adding the paper strips to your heart. It’s just like a puzzle - they can either fit or overlap. You have to play with them to get the look you want.

Dream2
Dream3

5) Now turn your heart over and trim excess pieces off the edge very slowly for a clean, smooth heart.

Dream4

6) Add the “dream” phrase banner to the center – cut the tiny bow off of the right side and set it aside to use in a later step.

7) While on the back side, adhere the scallop Flutterbys to the edge of your heart.

Dream6

8) Add the “keep it simple” clipboard die cut to the right side using dimensional adhesive.

9) Place two heart stickers and the little bow you cut over the clipboard then add a mini green flower sticker to the center of the tiny bows on the left and right. Dream7

10) Set two word stickers anywhere on your heart, along with a couple of heart stickers Dream8
Dream9

11) Add black cardstock to a piece of pre-cut 12” foam board, adhere a 12” square piece of chicken wire to the cardstock and board by simply twisting the edges of the wire around the backside of your board. It will make it flush and smooth (no need to glue, this will not move). Add wire to top to hang or use an easel to display.

Dream

That's all there is to it! Thanks for stopping by!
