Amy Tangerine Plus One 11

When our pals at American Crafts asked if we wanted to get crafty with the new Amy Tangerine Plus One collection, we couldn’t say “Yes!” fast enough. Those of you who follow us on Instagram also got pretty excited when we shared a photo of this box full of goodies.

Love the #AmyTangerine Plus One collection especially that skinny #washitape

Amy Tangerine’s Plus One is the top selling collection from American Crafts winter line, and it has already sold out of most stores. Luckily on March 24 HSN is going to have five discounted bundles of Amy Tangerine’s Plus One collection. We hear prices will start at just under $20, and bundles will include a basic kit, an embellishment kit, an embroidery kit and a stamping kit. Also the sold out Plus One Project Life Mini Kit will be available at a discounted price (read more here about why we love Project Life).

Instagram-Friendly Project Life Kit

Projectlife Just Add Color Hsn 18

We’ve become a little obsessed with Project Life, and I know we’ve shared quite a few posts lately (in fact we have a Project Life giveaway ending soon so hurry and go enter), but we didn’t want any of you to miss out on the new, Instagram-friendly Project Life kits that are coming to HSN next week.

New Square Project Life Layouts on HSN via #ProjectLife

We love Instagram, and have been craving Project Life Plastic Pages to accommodate square photos. The new “Just Add Color” Project Life kit features 2×2 and 4×4-sized photo pocket pages and cards. This kit will be exclusive to HSN and a great deal — it will be released September 17th and is expected to sell out very quickly.

We had a sneak peak and are excited to share a few layouts I created with the kit and photos from Rockwell’s baby blessing. We did the blessing in July at my husband’s hometown of beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming, so the bold, star graphic, 2×2 card in the kit was perfect for my page.

Our Family’s Project Life + Giveaway!

How To Use Project Life Scrapbook 8

As Aimée explained yesterday, we are just smitten with the simplicity of using Project Life to capture our memories. Today I’m sharing a few pages from my family’s Project Life album.

How to Use Project Life at

I thought you might like a peek at the pages I made about baby Rockwell’s birth. You know what they say about how you take tons of pictures of your first born and as you have more kids they’re lucky if you even remember to get out the camera? Well in this era of camera phones, having enough pictures is NO problem. Exactly WHAT to do with all those pictures or even getting those pictures onto paper, is another story! The fact that I already have hard-copy prints of Rockwell actually in an album is certainly a record for our family.

Tour of American Crafts


So we’ve mentioned our trip to the SNAP conference and the fabulous floral arranging workshop, but we’ve also been meaning to share photos from the super-cool tour of American Crafts warehouse that we got to take before SNAP started. So here we go…

American Crafts Sign and Lobby

It is funny that being bloggers now, Aimée and I are totally used to each other snapping photos and Instagramming while we talk/shop/whatever. But since my friend Grant was giving us a personal tour of the American Crafts offices, Aimée and I discussed ahead of time that we should really downplay the photo taking. Of course we wanted a few pics to share with you all, but we agreed that Aimée would take a few discreet snapshots here and there and that’s it. Once we got inside, though, that play-it-cool plan went out the window. It was inspiration overload, I started snapping pics and couldn’t stop!

American Crafts Warehouse

Inside the American Crafts warehouse… looks just like a warehouse, right? But wait, it gets better… they had a little mock-up shop. Grant said it is where they bring in buyers from big retailers and show them how the product lineup would look on store shelves. Aimée and I were in heaven!
