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!

Happy Crafting friends!
