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.
