Hambly Screen Prints









(Reported by Shelley Haganman)



Hambly is one of my all time favorite companies so when I was asked to review their new transparency overlays, rub ons, and paper....I was thrilled! I really love working with clear products like acrylic and transparencies so the whole Hambly line is totally for me! I love the interesting themes that they screen print right onto transparencies as well as paper. This company is always so "hip" and in tune with the current trends if not setting them thanks to their designer Allison Kreft Abad! I was so excited to receive some of their newest release from CHA 2011 Summer called "Camera Collection"! Be still my heart....seriously.....I have a real affinity for cameras. I collect them, I use them as a photographer, and I LOVE to scrapbook with anything shaped or themed with cameras. This truly was a dream come true!

First off you must know that these products are on printed on quality paper and transparency. You will be very happy with the ease of use of these products as well. The rub ons are incredible and I consider them the best rub ons I have ever used! It doesn't hurt that the designs are so dang cute too! I find all the items that I reviewed to be of very high quality, easy to use, and simply fabulous. Prices seem reasonable to me considering the quality of work and the uniqueness of the product!

What I liked: Well it's HAMBLY....I loved it all! The transparencies were definitely my favorite but I really loved the screen printed paper as well. I appreciated the gorgeous metallic paper Hambly uses to screen print their work. I also really love the bright and very cool colors they screen print onto transparency! VERY COOL colors like hot pink, lime green, orange, turquoise. My favorite thing about these products were the themes.....cameras and banners. And let's not forget about their amazing Washi tape and rub ons!! Oh my goodness....this stuff is incredible!

What I didn't like: Honestly.....nothing!

What I made:

This is a little mini album I made creating "pockets" with the transparencies and the washi tape! I also used the washi tape to secure and edge photos.
This pocket page was made using two pieces of 6x6 transparency and sealing three sides with Washi tape! Now you can place your 4x6 photos inside the pocket!

     (Hambly "Banners" transparency and paper, Washi tape, American Crafts number and brad, vintage buttons and broach pin, Maya Road rhinestone button)


This is a layout I made using Hambly transparency on top and paper under the transparency in different colors. I also created "flowers" using washi tape and created a frame for my photo with pleated washi tape.

I don't have any Hambly transparencies, but I do have some others and can't wait to try out the pocket idea using the washi tape...genius!

Angela Nebinger said...

I only have used the clearly heavy overlay for a mini book cover and the woodgrain overlay (also in a mini book) my wish list for them is HUGE.. I really really want to dive in and check out more of their goodies. Longing to try their tapes!! Thanks for a chance to win a prize pack!!

Wow, I love the transparencies! i have never used Hambly since it is not that easy to get in Germany. Love it!

I love both of your projects. I have been enamored with using the Hambly transparencies in mini-albums after seeing Ali Edwards use them so beautifully in her December Daily projects.

Linh C. said...

I've used Hambly products before. I have several transparencies that I can use to make your projects! Yay for using up what I already have!

Tracey said...

You made such BEAUTIFUL projects with these products!!!

I follow Hambly's blog, and they show the neatest tutorials sometimes. Did you know that if you use a little nail polish remover on their transparencies, you can transfer the images from them onto paper? Creates a really cool effect.

Erica Hettwer said...

I love Hambly! I especially love little mini books made with their transparancies! They make the greatest pages either embellished or just left as is.

Renee VanEpps said...

OH my goodness, your little album is GORGEOUS!!! Seriously!!! What a beautiful family you have!! Really like the pockets for pics and the washi tapes you put along the sides of your pics. I've never used Hambly, BUT I have about 50 of their products on my wish list!! Was hooked when they started using so many colors.. I suppose if I actually BUY some one of these days I will become obsessed LOL ;) Thanks for the chance 2 win!

Jody said...

Aren't Hambly transparencies so fun to play with! They make such terrific mini album pages, and their rub0ns go on smooth as butter. But my favorite thing about Hambly is that their paper smells like vanilla!
