New American Crafts Products

August 12, 2008 Sarah Coggins

I rarely get new scrapbook products fresh off the press. Fact is, it’s new to me regardless and, well, I’m cheap thrifty. LOL I have a very hard time rationalizing paying full price for something I can get for 50% – 75% off in a few months. However, on Sunday while shopping at Archiver’s (with my coupons, of course!), I stumbled across the new products from American Crafts and a few found their way into my basket. Nope, I have no idea how they got there. 😉

I bought 2 of the 8.5×11 D-ring albums for the pages I’m scrapping of our childhoods (those were on my list); 2 packages of ribbons; a package of Email Everyday Details Stickers; and a package of rub-ons with IM sayings. The rub-ons are too cute. I especially love the one with a bird and conversation bubble stating “a little birdie told me.” 🙂 My only disappointment with the rub-ons is one set of “thanks” has a missing ‘k.’ I wonder where it ran off to. Hmm…

Finally, I got one of their new storage boxes of 12×12 patterned paper (Amplified) free with purchase. I like the design of the packaging – very easy to store and find the paper in my Crop In Style. Although, the little perforated portion on top took a bit of work to tear off. Worth the effort though and the papers are gorgeous. Each package contains 60 single sided patterned sheets.

I made this tropical thank you card using the new rub-ons & paper along with a few items from my stash:

Supplies: Die Cuts with a View card; American Crafts Go-G0 Amplified patterned paper & IM Phrases Everyday MiniMarks rub-ons; Making Memories vellum metal rimmed tag & snap; black stamp ink.

    Being "thrifty" myself, I completely understand your shopping habits...I'm the same way. But I have a serious weakness for AC! Love the purchases and the card!

    Wow, you got a lot of goodies! Our Archivers didn't have that much AC stuff yet, so there wasn't enough for me to buy to get the free paper pack.

    Cute card as well :) Enjoy your new toys :)

    I love AC products and I'm totally like you, I usually wait for the stuff to be on sale. Besides, we have to wait longer here in Canada to get the newer stuff unless we order from the U.S and then we pay even more in custom fees in a few words, I'm also very thrifty :)

    Thanks for sharing your finds. I am like you...I rarely buy something as soon as it comes out. Unless I have a REALLY good coupon! But I like those American Crafts rubons...I've been eyeing some of their newer ones...
