American Crafts embellishments

I had a lot of fun working with some American Crafts embellishments for this review. The Items I’ve tried out are:

City Park ‘Slide’ Delights
Dear Lizzie Mementos ‘Charming’
City Park Printed Tags
Dear Lizzie ‘Enchanted’ Rose Brads
Dear Lizzie ‘Hyacinth’ Details

Remarks ‘Gazeebo’ Dimensional Stickers
The City Park line is equally as fun and funky and full of uplifting colour. Prices range from £3.00 to £6.00, or $4.00 to $7.00 in the US.

If I had to describe these products in one word, it would be ‘fun’! You can’t help but smile when working with the bright, colourful product that we’ve come to associate with the AC brand. The Dear Lizzie line is probably one of their most popular, and it’s easy to see why. The embellishments are still typically American Crafts, but they have an interesting and unique feminine twist. I managed to combine product from all the embellishment packs from different collections on my pages and they still looked as though they were made to go together. This leads me to think that you could probably buy a few new embellishment packs to liven up your older AC collections and get away with it :) You’ve gotta love an excuse to buy new embellies, right?

In addition to the fun designs, the embellishments are well made. Things that were meant to stick did, nothing fell apart and everything was well finished.

The cost is reasonable for what you’re getting, although we get a bit of a worse deal (as with everything imported) outside the US.

They are well suited to a multitude of papercrafts, and there are many product lines to choose from, so there’s bound to be something to suit you and your project.

I loved the products, and found the continuation of style and the fact that you can tell it’s designed by AC a positive factor. I can see objectively, however, that this might put some people off in terms of being ‘samey’, and not all that different to previous releases. I can’t think of anything else negative about them :)
