Scrapbook Enabling: The New “Shimelle” Line for American Crafts!



She just posted it on her blog HERE. You can also see it on the American Crafts blog HERE and have a chance to win a Shimelle prize pack.

{Dear Scrapbook Santa – I know it’s only July but, well, you owe me for last Christmas still and I’d like to cash in that chip now. If you would please see that I win the Shimelle prize pack from the AC blog, I’d be willing to call it even. Hey, I may even let you off the hook for this coming Christmas. I want it THAT bad. All my love, Scrapbook Obsession. PS: If the camera tape dispenser is not in the prize pack, we’ll have to reconsider the terms of this agreement. xo }

Here is just a teaser but you have to look at both links above to see real and fake pictures of the whole line before I’ll allow you to make a decision on it. This is important, people!

Here’s a teaser:

My top 5 favorite things about the “Shimelle” line from American Crafts:

1. She made sure there were at least 3 of certain elements so you can easily follow the design principle of “the visual triangle”. I mean, who does that? Shimelle, that’s who.

2. The use of British-y words like “rubbish”, “clever”, and “lovely” where you can’t help yourself, you just say them with an English accent. Which I have perfected since I started faithfully watching “Ladies of London” on Bravo.

3. Typewriters and suitcases!

4. The lovely colors that are both bright and muted at the same time – shades of turquoise, orange, pink, red, and what looks to be a true white {which i always prefer over cream}.

5. The camera tape dispenser. I love cameras and it will sit on my desk next to my camera-shaped rubber stamps. So kee-yoot!!!

The only 5 pieces I *won’t* buy {because that is easier than itemizing what I WILL buy, i.e., every piece that is not on the list below:

1. Glitter Thickers. I love Shimelle, love Glitter Girl, love Thickers. But I don’t love glitter Thickers.

2. Acrylic stamps. I’m not allowed to buy those anymore, ESPECIALLY if they’re super cute like that.

3./4. Embossing folder and metal dies. I don’t have a machine to use them in.

5. Roller adhesive. I’m not allowed to buy any more adhesive either.

It ships to stores in mid-July 2014 so not much longer to wait! Hmmm … {looks around house, thinking about what she can sell in the meantime} … only a few more weeks, huh?

Okay, your turn! What do you love and not so much about Shimelle’s new scrapbooking line for American Crafts?

    I’m loving the wood veneers and all of the ephemera/die cut pieces look fun. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
