Valentine's Day Blog Hop with American Crafts


Hello and welcome to the American Crafts Valentine's Day blog hop!

Here is our line-up for today in case you have just stumbled upon my blog. You'll want to start from the beginning of the hop at American Crafts following the links as you go along so that you don't miss anything! There are so many gorgeous projects to see and there just might be some surprises along the way.

American Crafts
***Becky Williams*** you are here!

♥♥

For the hop today I've created two projects using the new "XOXO" collection. 


This card was quick and easy using premade diecuts. I am an admitted twine hoarder so I love that many of the new lines from American Crafts include twine! I've used some here on this card.


Isn't this such a cute collection? I really like the mix of colors and patterns and the cute embellishments. I used two of the types of ribbon (white hearts on red and white swirly on black) that come with the "XOXO" collection. The white alpha stickers are from the Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic line. 


I used foam adhesive to pop up some of the embellishments. 


Do you love American Crafts as much as I do? If you do, leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose one winner (U.S. residents only, please) to receive an assortment of fun things from American Crafts. In your comment please tell me what your favorite AC collection of all time is and make sure that you include your email so that I can contact you if you win. I will choose a winner on Saturday night and post here on Monday. 

Thanks for joining in the American Crafts Valentine's Day hop today. Head on over to the American Crafts blog to finish up the hop and earn your chance at the GRAND PRIZE giveaway!

Have a very happy Valentine's Day.

My favorite collection of all time - not sure but it might be either the new Amy Tangerine or the new Dear Lizzy - they both have amazing color palettes.

These are so cute! Look at that black ribbon with the swirls. I don't use much ribbon but I might need that!

Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic is my very favorite - I am using it in an album on my recent all girls trip to Vegas! Her new Lucky Charm looks delicious too though and it might be a new fave!

Desiree B said...

Love your card. It looks so fresh and clean. I would have to say my favorite AC line to date has been Dear Lizzy Neopolitan.

Elin Larsson said...

Great card and layout! Soo lovely both. Fab sketches!

Anne Fisher said...

Such cute projects - love the bright colors of your card and layout. Favorite AC collection of all time? That's tough - I think I'll have to go with Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook for now. Love all the bright and watercolory patterns, but I love the Dear Lizzy lines and Amy's new line too!

Cute card and page, Becky! Love the patterns and aqua/red/pink combo of XOXO...and I hear 'ya - I'm a twine lover too!
Favorite AC collection? Wow. I guess it'd have to be one of the Amy Tan collections. I bought the collection pack of Ready, Set, Go just recently - I love all those papers. (And that doesn't even include all the fabulous lines from the rest of the AC familiy - Crate, SC, Pebbles...so much to love!)
