Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



coordinating AC cardstock colors

As you know, we have offered 3×4 and 4×6 Textured Cardstock packs for all of our already-existing Project Life editions. If you’re not sure why they’re awesome, check out this blog post. Some are sold out and some are still in stock. We do not have plans to make more of any of those, especially with so many more editions coming. If you have your eye on Textured Cards for Cherry, Turquoise, Amber, Cobalt, or Clementine Edition … pick them up while you can. You can see what’s left on our Products page.

Since we are not offering Textured Cardstock packs for all the newly-released editions, I wanted to share with you a guide for specific American Crafts cardstock colors that go with each edition. As for actually purchasing the cardstock, their direct online store is here or their store finder is here.

And yes – we are offering the little boxes of coordinating cardstock to go with each of our coming-in-May editions (including Mini Kits) that we just introduced at CHA.

We even have cardstock colors hand-selected from American Crafts’ stock for our 3 Childhood Mini Kits!

    First off congrats on all that is going on with Project Life. This is the only way I scrapbook.. and its given me the confidence to back track and get caught up from years back.. having two young children. I am awaiting my seafoam edition due to arrive today..So excited.. I am even more excited to get my hands on a couple editions in May to get caught up from years past.. SO excited
    I have a question. When do you expect the seafoam diiders? I thought they were going to show up last weekend? Any ideas?

    Thanks for all you do .

    FANTASTIC! Thank you!!!! I will be picking these up as soon as I find someplace to pick them up! :) I JUST ordered the Mayfield Edition!

  3. Christy Harris says:

    I followed the link to the American Crafts store because I would like to pick up one sheet of each of the cardstock colors for the Seafoam Edition and each of the Childhood Editions but their store only sells what I am assuming is a pack of each color for $12.50. I just want one sheet of each! Two Peas in a Bucket doesn’t even have all of these colors available, does anyone know of another site that carries AC cardstock by the sheet? Please help!

  4. Devanie says:

    This site: http://www.awdml.com has AC Cardstock by the sheet, but I prefer Bazzill so am trying to match.

    I’m trying to match Seafoam to Bazzill. I was trying to use their Matchmaker tool to no avail :)

    • Heather Tierney says:

      The site Devanie linked above is the only place I could find most of the colors by the sheet. Very surprised none of the bigger online stores have it.

    I would love to have the coordinating AC Cardstock Colors or Stampin Up Cardstock for the Clementine Core Kit.

  8. Krista says:

    it’s funny you just posted this… right before this post went up i took a couple cards from my baby for him kit in to hobby lobby to match up a few sheets of cardstock! i’m working away on my two boys baby books (now 3 years old (twins)) and i’m having so much fun putting them together.

  9. Liz says:

    Is there any chance AC digitals will be offering these in sets? I feel like I need paper behind the template, but the patterns in the kit seem so busy. I would love to get the digital solids with the core kits.

    I’m new to digi and am loving it! Jessica Sprague’s class was perfection and I am ready to go!

  10. Carolyn says:

    Wouldn’t happen to have the AC colors for the Clementine Edition would you? The papers for the Clementine Editions do not even show up in a search on Amazon. TIA

  11. Kate says:

    Any chance the AC colors will be listed for the other editions, such as Amber?

  12. Sonja Akins says:

    Yes please, Becky, list the AC colors for the first five editions, too, OK? I’m still working with those (yeah, I bought all five of them – lots of backlog to catch up on!), so knowing the AC partner-papers would be a big help. Especially since I have lots of AC cardstock in my stash already, too!

  13. Heather says:

    I wish there were the solid matching cardstocks available in digital. I agree with previous poster that I like to have a coordinating solid as my backdrop and use the patterned papers in smaller 3 x 4 openings. Would love to see digital “paper packs” for each edition – especially baby editions.

  14. Pat says:

    I would love to know what Stampin Up colors match, for stamping on PL cards!

  15. Bev Mascara says:

    Great and thank you

  16. Maleficent says:

    Coordinating colors for Amber would be awesome. Especially since I just ordered the Amber not realizing the card stock was never going to go back on sale on Amazon.

  17. Jeanette says:

    The Clementine Edition Card Stock is out of stock. Will that be re-stocked? If not would you mind listing the matching cardstock colors for that kit. Thank you very much.

  18. Barbara Wiley says:

    I would love to buy the turquoise cardstock. Please email me .

  19. Kim says:

    Could you pease list the coording cardstock for the new editions: Cinnamon, Honey, Wedding, Blush, etc.? Thanks!

  20. Birgit Willand says:

    If you are using a digital kit, you can make your own digital matching cardstock by using the eye dropper tool on the swatches above or on any of the cards in the kit that you want. You then use the paint bucket to color a new layer just above your Background layer. If you grab the gray cardstock tile at http://www.scrappincop.com/2009/10/cu-ok-textured-cardstock-styles-for.html you can use it in the texturizer in the Texture filter to give that layer a cardstock texture. Voila! Matching cardstock. I, of course, am looking for matching real paper.
