Product Spotlight *AC DIY2*

The American Crafts DIY2 collection is a kraft based collection with blacks, and whites, and best of all pops of gold sparkle throughout.  How can you go wrong with that?  This week I have some great inspiration pieces to share with you.

Lisa one of our resident card queens used the dictionary paper as a fun layer on this beautiful card.  And see that sweet gold sparkly heart?  It's also part of the collection.

I laid out all the items I had from the collection and decided to make a tag mini album.

I really wanted to create a project that would incorporate all the "paper" elements in one. I decided to use the most recent so event I had photos from.  Earlier that week the hubs and I had date night at the Jet's hockey game.  I had snapped a few photos and thought it would be a cute little mini album.  I often think of a mini as having to be to commemorate some special occasion or event, when really it's simply a collection of photos possessing the same theme.
In my mini I've used the 12x12 burlap, the dictionary paper, the black dot burlap, the kraft tags with gold glitter, the gold foil dots on black cardstock, and a few other co-ordinating American Crafts products.

Orange, also joined in on the fun and created this cute layout using several of the DIY pieces together.
I just love how she used the gold sequin ribbon to create that big bold title.  Her multiple layers give her lo some real depth.

So many different way to use this collection, on it's own or as embellishment pieces for you project.  Once thing is for certain a little bit of kraft, mixed with a dash of sparkle add a little flash to any project.

You can check out all of the American Crafts DIY2 Collection right here in the Paper Issues shop.

Happy crafting friends!
