American Crafts City Park and a Give-away!









{Reported by Ashley Harris}





As I was walking the aisles at CHA this last summer, there were many lines that were fun. Just plain fun. However, when I saw City Park by American Crafts, I jumped up and down, squealed and did a cartwheel. Well, I did in my head and in my heart as there were far too many people to witness this in real life. What I was getting to before all the jumping was that this line is FABULOUS!! Let me tell you how it is.

What I liked:
-I love love love the embossed paper! FAB!!
- The glitter that is on some of the sheets are sealed and so they don't shed glitter! WOOO HOOO!!
- They have these lovely packages of cards that have a sentiment on them or they are just plain that you can "dress up". WORD.

What I didn't like:
-The only thing I could think of was the journaling stickers. I would like them to have more of a cardstock sticker weight than the thin flimsy feel they have.


What I made:


Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP White; Everything else American Crafts City Park



Supplies: Card: American Crafts Journaling Card; Stickers: American Crafts



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP White; Patterned Paper: American Crafts City Park; Stamps: Technique Tuesday Thanks for Everything; Ink: Close To My Heart; Rhinestones: KaiserCraft; Glitter: Stickles by Ranger


Where and How Much:
Product: City Park line
Manufacturer: American Crafts
MSRP:$.099-$9.99
Available Online: Scrapbook.com, *TwoPeasInABucket.com



Bottom line I think it is just a great happy line. It makes me want to smile. Makes me want to go to the park and do cartwheels with my kids. Sigh...

I loved this line right from seeing it at CHA, although I do agree it would be wonderful if the stickers had a bit more weight to them, especially as i usually fluff the backs and raise them up on 3d foam
