Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook Line for American Crafts - How can you not LOVE this paper?

Whimsical.  Colorful. Versatile. 

Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook line for American Crafts is just delightful!  As you can see from the things I made for Paper Pals Design Team, this line can span seasons, convey many sentiments, and make a wonderful mini book or home decor item!

When I began to contemplate the perfect photos for these projects, I went directly to my "summer fun" photos.  Nothing quite worked for me.  Then I remembered my kids in the fall leaves! I love how the gold leaves in the photo work with the spunky colors of the in the paper.  And who would think to add lime green, turquoise, and magenta to "leaves" paper (Amy Tangerine - aka genius)! I love the look of this.  The papers, (both 12 x 12 and mini-papers) work so well together that I just layered and layered and layered to get this look!  The line also has sweet embellishments in the form of tags,paper clips, and stickers that really give this product line and your projects wonderful pop! Add some Diamond Glaze and glitter, and ribbon and you'll love what you come up with!

The 6 x 6 papers just spoke "mini book" to me!  You should stop into the store and take a look at the subject matter of my mini book and have a good laugh with me (and fellow PPDT member, Angela Lenssen (aka our photography for the family photo shoot last fall.  Consider this your own personal scavenger hunt!   

  And, last but not least, this line is perfect for cards of course.  You can use the sticker sheets and scraps, ribbon, Diamond Glaze, and glitter to create lovely, heartfelt sentiments to give to family or friends!
I hope you enjoy creating with this line....I loved it!

Pin It!
