American Crafts Amy Tangerine Collection and a give away!














{Reported by Ashley Harris}














Firstly, I love Amy Tan.  I love her style and I love her work.    Secondly, I love American Crafts.  Put the two together and crazy amazing things happen.  When American Crafts announced this collaboration I was ecstatic.   I knew it was going to be hip, unique and absolutely love-able.  They did not disappoint!  Come join me for this fun lovely eye candy!


What I liked:
-The colors are fantastic.  They pop and are just divine to look at.
-The patterns are hip and so fun to work with!
-Embellishments are great.  I actually liked working with the stickers and I am not a sticker person at all.  These were great!


What I didn't like:
-There is only one, but it, for me, is a doozy.  The adhesive backed fabric paper.  Love the patterns, HATE the lack of tackiness on this.   I mean really, a post-it note has more tack to it.   So that is my only complaint.


What I made:


Size:  4x6  Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Kraft;  All other supplies American Crafts Amy Tangerine line



Size:  4x6   Supplies:  Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics Kraft; Rhinestone: Kaisercraft; Staples: Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz for Advantus:  All other products: American Crafts Amy Tangerine line






Size:  12x12  Supplies: Pen:  Zig by Kuratake; All other supplies American Crafts Amy Tangerine Line


Where and How Much?
Product:  Amy Tangerine Line
Manufacturer:  American Crafts
MSRP: $0.79-$8.99

Bottom Line:  This is a wonderful collection that I had a hard time cutting into because I just loved it so much.  I guess I will just need to add to my stash!  

What do you think?  Are you in love or are you  just "okay" with it?  Leave a comment by midnight EST on Tuesday to be entered to win a prize pack from American Crafts!

Wow, wow, wow!! Like you, I just love the clean, hip graphics in this collection! Too bad about the fabric paper...what were they thinking??? Of course, if the prints are as cool as what I've seen so far, I wouldn't mind spraying on adhesive if I had to!

kimberly said...

I'm in LOVE with this new line--it fits my style perfectly (but it's good to know the real world deets about the stickiness of the fabric paper). I'm hoping my local scrapping shop still has some of the line in stock. Thanks for a chance to win it!

Patty said...

I think for me my favorite part of her line is all the little bits and pieces. The papers are nice, don't get me wrong. BUT at this time in my scrapping days I am really digging good embellishments and I just love hers:)

c.darwin said...

Love everything I've seen so far, especially the vintage typewriters. Was excited about the fabric paper too. Thanks for the great review!

Faye Marie said...

In Love... i don't know how anyone could be just okay with this stuff! I love it all. I feel like I want to buy multiple pieces of each design cause they are so great!!! Cant wait to get my hands on all the goodies!!!!!!!!!!!
