CHA Winter 2014: American Crafts (Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, and DIY shop)

American Crafts now includes Pink Paislee, Pebbles, Crate Paper and more! They’ve become absolutely huge and had a large section on the show floor with all their latest and greatest – as well as their signature designers. Today I want to share with you my favorite offerings that will be sold under the actual “American Crafts” brand.

First up, let’s talk Amy Tangerine’s new “Plus One” line.

My favorite item from this line is this sticker roll of little tags. Something about the packaging + cute tags = I will need this.

Amy is one to know her trends – and she’s hit it spot on with these super thin washi tapes. Love the patterns + colors.

Other favorites include the wood mounted stamps, the sketchy alphas, and the wafer dies and embossing folder.

The bright colors and handwriting in this line remind me a bit of Highline (from Basic Grey), but I think that the way Amy’s line is done I will find many of the embellishments and accessories quite useful for my style. This is something I so admire about her lines – that she really has an eye for what is useful.

Looking for Amy’s line? Twelve of the pieces are already available at the Two Peas shop – you can check them out here! The full line will be shipping to stores everywhere quite soon.

So speaking of useful, check this out.

American Crafts released a binder specifically for storing thickers. They have 6×12 page protectors, divided 12×12, and also a 6×12 binder with “Thickers” embossed on the front. This seems like such a cool idea – I just know the way I work I’d end up either never using my thickers or never putting them back if I stored mine this way. However I’m sure many people will love using this!

Speaking of love – let’s check out the Dear Lizzy line next!

Filled with hearts, soft colors, and plenty of florals this will be the line for spring, baby, or just any time you want to do some lovely crafting!

LOVE the album (above), and seeing these wood die cuts too (below).

For the love of thickers and sweet embellishments!

I’ve got to have these buttons…

and the stamps.

So much to love here – and I feel like with both of these designer lines American Crafts has done a fantastic job of creating products that can be mixed and matched easily with other lines, brands, and made to fit your own crafting style.

Last but not least – AC has a “DIY shop” line that gathers a lot of neutrals, basics, and surfaces into one nice collection.

AC_2 (4)

I mention this here because I really think having a source for basics, mini albums, and other such supplies is key. I can’t think of anyone else who has a line quite like this at the moment – and I’m glad to see it.

American Crafts anticipates shipping all of these lines to stores very soon – within the next few weeks hopefully! Now I just have to wait…
