Shine on- in Stores Now!

I’m so excited to share my brand new collection with you! It’s called “Shine On.” This is my 15th collection with American Crafts - can you believe it? It’s been such a fun journey to create this set of products and I know using them will bring a bright smile to anyone’s face. This collection features muted tones (mint green, soft mauve, darkened lavender) and bright gold accents. It’s a beautiful combination of craft-room staples and unique stand-out pieces. Soft botanicals, cute woodland creatures, and geometric patterns all make appearances in Shine On. You can find this collection at your local scrapbook store or here online. There are so many amazing items in this collection– you should check out the whole thing or watch the video where I cover each individual item. For this post, I'm highlighting 3 amazing products that you should be sure not to miss!

Keep on Shining

1. We have a beautiful set of 8 unique washi tapes with a variety of widths and textures. There are some fun patterns, a glitter tape, and more standard sized tapes. There’s a thicker one with a black and white camera pattern, perfect for pages or spreads with pictures. And there’s a cute sparkly thin gold roll that will accent anything you stick it to and the best part is that the glitter will not rub off!

2. As always, I’ve included a beautiful little sticker book. There are 419 individual stickers. Many of them have clear backing and will fit into any paper project. Some of them are hard to see on camera and even in person because they are actually printed in white. The collection also includes some beautiful die cuts. They come in matte, gold, and craft styles. They feature hand-lettering in white and gold colors.

3. One of my favorite *new* items from the collection is this golden stencil ruler. There are a ton of shapes you can trace, it’s great for creating short, perfectly straight lines and you can even create a cute little scalloped pattern with the other side of the ruler. 

So, what’s your favorite part of the collection? Be sure to let me know in the comments and give this video a thumbs up. Thanks as always for watching. Hope you feel inspired to keep the creative juices flowing and I cannot wait to see what you create with Shine On! Keep shining friends!

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

Hello! I am Violeta Scrap and I am delighted to show you again my scrap projects so you can have some inspiration.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

I have made some layouts with the pictures of my friend’s wedding. I met her thanks to scrapbooking. I have made this layout with the pictures of the beginning of the wedding and the invitation of the event as the main element of decoration.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

For this Project I have used the new Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On” because its colors are very beautiful and they combine perfectly with the wedding pictures. I have used a white basic cardstock as the base of the Project.  I have glued over a stripe of the paper “Planted” of the new collection “Shine On” in brown colors combining with the colors of the invitation.

For the title, I have combined a white alphabet, a Golden alphabet and a Brown alphabet in different sizes and materials.

As main element decorating the layout I have used the envelope and the invitation of the wedding. Plus, I have added some blue hearts of the new Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On”.

Violeta's Beautiful Layout

It is a very simple Project that you can make with few materials. You can combine the different papers from the Amy Tangerine’s collection “Shine On”.I am sure that you can make this Project with pictures of a very special day. And with Amy’s papers the result is amazing.

Zinia's Confetti Layout

Zinia's Confetti Layout 1

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and I have another paper-focused design to share with you. This is an extremely easy page to recreate and it’s perfect if you want to use up scraps.

Zinia's Confetti Layout 3

My starting point for this layout was a color palette. I realized that many of my pages look similar cause I tend to either use one collection at a time or gravitate towards the same color combinations. That’s why I decided to step outside my comfort zone and work with a very unusual(atleast for my standard) color palette.

Zinia's Confetti Layout 6

I basically mixed some reds, pinks and oranges with green and teals patterns. To achieve that color combination, I pulled papers from various collections by Amy. Although the collections look completely different from one another, the products work together effortlessly.

Zinia's Confetti Layout 4

So after I pulled my pattern papers, I punched a bunch of circles in two different sizes. I arranged those circles on my page pretty much randomly. I only tried to keep them denser in the middle and spread them around as we move to the edges. I call this, the confetti design!

Zinia's Confetti Layout 5

To make my confetti area even more dense, I added a few tiny splatters to fiil any big gaps between my circles. The embellishing part was slightly challenging because of the unusual color palette. I had to focus on pieces that were either monochromatic or didn’t include any extra colors.

Zinia's Confetti Layout 2

I must say that having limited options because of the colors, made it much easier to commit and finish off the page very quickly instead of trying out every single piece of ephemera in my stash.

So this is the page for today, I really hope you enjoyed it and you will pull out your circle punches to create your own take on this confetti design.

Until next time, happy crafting.

Zinia's Watercolor Flowers

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’m back on the blog with another colorful layout using a combination of Amy’s collections.

Zinia's Watercolor Flowers 1

For this page I wanted to mostly focus on embellishments and build a colorful nature scene. I really wanted to use the adorable bird stickers from the Sunshine & Good Times collection sticker book so I decided to paint some flowers and leave on my background.

Zinia's Watercolor Flowers 3

For that I used the Vicki Boutin watercolor tubes, mixing them together to create my own special colors. In some cases, I cheated a little and added a few drops of Jane Davenport Inkredicle inks to make sure I achieve the desired shade.

To embellish the layout, I used a mix of Hustle & Heart and Sunshine & Good Stuff products. I wanted to document my favorite photo of my childhood and the colors didn’t fully match with one single collection.

Zinia's Watercolor Flowers 5

I also found the opportunity to use some pieces that I loved but couldn’t find the perfect project to use them on. For example, I really love the succulent images however I don’t document things that match that theme. Building a whimsical scene like this is definitely a great way to use up all the adorable images that you don’t know how to use.

Zinia's Watercolor Flowers 6


I also used bottle of nuvo drops to add tiny yellow dots around the page and fill the empty spots. This way my floral painting looks much more interesting and complicated.

I really hope you enjoyed this page and you got inspired to create something beautiful with your favorite supplies. Until next time, happy crafting!

Keep on Shining! Announcing my next AC collection!

As you know, I love getting the chance to let my creative light shine and I am guessing you enjoy doing the same. That's why I’m so pleased to reveal my Shine On Collection with American Crafts. The collection is full of bright, inspiring products that will give you a little extra sunshine in your crafting!

Keep on Shining

Inspired by natural textures, some designs in the collection might remind you of warm feelings of home - wood, plants and of course florals. Hopefully, you will all be delighted to see the same Amy Tangerine look and feel paired with these unique textures and highlighted with gold foil.

Of course, let's not forget the stickers! From minimalist lettering, to faux suede bows, to bright and shiny gold botanicals— there are tons and tons of vibrant, beautiful options that will help any spread or project shoot for the stars!

Keep on Shining

My favorite piece from the collection is probably the gold metallic ruler with stencils pictured below. There are so many ways to use it and it looks incredibly cute with all my other supplies. The scalloped edges work well for drawing a pattern in your scrapbook or bullet journal. The measurement side is excellent for drawing clean lines and edges. And of course, the stencils are a great way to create little illustrations throughout your projects without having to overthink whether or not it will look good or proportional.

Keep On Shining

Be sure to keep a look out for these products in stores near the end of July. Let me know if you spot them somewhere early! What are you most excited to use from the Shine On collection? Be sure to tell me in the comments below!
