Lovely Day can be summed up in one word, “lovely”! This collection combines beautiful everyday patterns and a color palette of blues, yellows and pinks. If I had to pick one favorite embellishment, it would be hands down the puffy stickers. The whimsical characters and icons are perfect for telling stories.
This design is grounded by the large heart die cut filled with color. Each heart is backed with a pattern from the collection and filled with coordinating colored puffy stickers. Using a flag sticker from Lovely Day in the upper right corner just under the photo calls the attention to the star of the layout!
The words are important and here they take center stage in one of the hearts. A title chipboard icon from Lovely Day was used just above the journaling.
Using puffy stickers in contained spaces and making little monochromatic hearts is a great way to create an interesting frame for a special photo!

Hiya! Jamie here and one of my favorite places in the world is Palm Springs! I got to spend my 30th birthday there and it was an amazing and relaxing visit.
When I opened up my American Crafts box and saw Amy Tangerine’s On a Whim collection I instantly knew it would be perfect to document this trip. I’m pretty sure Amy must have got her inspiration from a visit there!
I created this mini 4x4 sized to fit into a binder from We ‘R Memory Keepers. It’s a pretty photo heavy mini with embellishments scattered in. For the title page I used two page protectors. On the first, I adhered this oh-so-awesome puffy camera and used transparent letter stickers to spell out my title. This flips up and the second is a pool side photo that I mounted on patterned paper. Then I added two palm tree stickers directly to the top of the page protector.
I only wrote a paragraph of journaling and included it on the second spread. I hand wrote the date in white ink and decorated the lines of that patterned paper with washi tape.
I like adding little elements outside of the page protectors. In this case, I included two embellishments to the rings. One is the donut puffy and the other is a swan I cut from patterned paper. They were completely perfect! You can kind of make out in the photo that there was a swan and donut floatie in the pool.
I added die cuts and stickers directly to the photos or page protectors. Since my photos were so large it was the best way to do it. I also backed all of the photos with patterned paper. I like that you can see just a tiny bit behind each one.
The last page protector holds some ephemera—a map of the hotel we stayed at. I couldn’t not use this awesome Saguaro cactus die cut to dress up this page!

Happy New Year my crafty friends! I’m so thrilled to be helping you usher in a new year of crafty goodness by sharing such a phenomenal new collection with you today! The On a Whim collection by Amy Tangerine is one of the most fun and colorful collections I’ve had the opportunity to work with and I think I’m in love!
This collection makes me want to take an island vacation immediately, but until I can make that happen I was happy to use all the candy colored supplies to document a beach vacation we took over the Thanksgiving holiday last year.
After 2 years living in North Carolina we finally made a trek out to the Outer Banks with some neighborhood friends and their family. It was a beautiful trip with gorgeous weather and I managed to get some soft sunset photos of my boys on the beach. Those pinks and blues and the green of my husband’s jacket all came together perfectly with the rich colors of the collection. I’ve also decided that I NEED about 50 more of those USA stickers for future layouts!
Some of my other favorite products from the collection are these very sturdy watercolor hang tags with gold foil designs. These are truly magnificent used as is, as I have done here, or manipulated with any kind of coloring tool, like markers, watercolor or inks. I’m planning to have a lot of fun with these!
I hope you’re as excited about this new collection as I am. Amy Tangerine and American Crafts have done it again, thank goodness. I hope they never stop bringing us all the fun and all the colors!
