SADT October Kit... product from 'Amy Tangerine'

The SADT October kit could possibly be our favorite kit of the year!  We couldn't wait to work with the new 'Amy Tangerine' line from American Crafts... and all the fun goodies we found to go with it.  The fabric flowers are from Basic Grey, and the fun colored pre-sewn fabric strips we found at our local fabric store. 

'Amy Tangerine' really did a great job designing this line... creating fun papers to work with and using a unique color pallet (probably not anything I would typically choose!).  The choice of pattern patter; from flowers, to wood grain, and dots, creates texture on your pages and all together works great.  It just so happened that I decided to make this a golf layout... and then I found the coordinating sticker "A slice of the good life".  It was the perfect sticker to add, playing off of the word 'slice' as it relates to the game of golf.

I don't have a sewing machine YET (my birthday is coming up though!) and I love the look of fabric and stitching on scrapbook layouts, it just seems to really complete the page.  We found these great fabric strips at the local fabric store.  They come in a pack of about 12, and there were a few coordinating colors to choose from.  (We found them by the pre-cut quilting strips.)

Embellishment and alpha stickers are also 'Amy Tangerine' by American craft.  But if you already have fabric Thickers, use a marker to make stitch like marks for the same look.

The chevron pattern (zig-zag) is everywhere!  Cut along the pattern for a fun edge.

Can't wait for 'Amy Tangerine' to come out with her new line, it was so fun to work with this one.  (BTW... love her name too!)  I'll be sure to include this layout in our Design Center albums for the crop on Nov. 19 too!
