Design Team: Jennifer McCrae Week 9 Cycle 7

The Sweetest

You can say we are all smitten by American Craft paper & embellishment lines. See how Jennifer McCrae stepped outside her comfort zone to create something... sweet!

"My Little Girl"

Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you, though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.

You're beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.
-Tim McGraw

What can I say?!?  She’s my one and only <3

Another thing that’s sweet is the set of goodies that I used from American Crafts to make my current project!

Its called Crate Paper and I absolutely love it!  The colors are wonderful, it has a very ‘homey’ feel to it and there’s so much you can do with it.  The top of the frame is not tacked down since I still need to choose which picture I want to put in it...

I have yet to brave putting paper in my sewing machine; thankfully, I didn’t have to!  This is a sticker that came in one of their embellishment packs.  So cute!

See?!? I love this whole line, its seriously SWEET!

I totally stepped outside my comfort zone with this project...  I layered lots of papers with different colors/patterns and I used embellishments that I normally wouldn’t.  I also layered embellishments too; the rosette and ‘Sweetest’ chipboard are two separate pieces from two separate embellishment packs.  Overall, a very fun project!

What I Used:
American Crafts Products from the ‘Crate Paper’ Collection
Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry ink
Scotch ATG
Zip Dry paper glue
Foam Squares
Bead stem - found in floral deparment
Jolee’s stickers


Thank you Jen! We love that Jen embraced the line to create something different for her!
