American Crafts Dear Lizzie Fifth & Frolic Layout

will be debuting in all JoAnn's stores on March 17th!

The line, designed by the incredibly talented Elizabeth Kartchner
features crisp blues, pinks, greens, yellows and airy neutrals with hints of gold.  

I've been a huge fan of Fifth & Frolic ever since I first laid eyes on it, and I'm a huge fan of all the Dear Lizzy lines from American Crafts.  They are always soft and lovely, with beautiful images and embellishments.  

I was sent some of the beautiful papers in this line, and some of the embellishments. It is an honor to be able to review this line and help promote it's release.


This background paper is my favorite of the collection.  I love the colors, the pattern, everything.  It's happy and bold, yet soft.  Can something be bold and soft?  It's beautiful.

The "3" card was cut from a piece of patterned paper, and aren't those brads to die for?
I love that the brad pack has such a great variety of metal and fabric brads in a variety of colors.
The feathers are from a dimensional sticker pack.  There are three sets of feathers in the pack, and they come with the rhinestones and twine already attached!

These cute little hearts were punched from a sheet of POW Glitter paper.  I love this paper because it's got brilliant sparkle, but if you feel it, it's perfectly smooth, and the glitter doesn't come off!
American Crafts is brilliant :)

Here's my favorite brad of the pack.  Isn't it darling?
A lot of the thin border pieces on this layout are from the bar code strip of the patterned paper.
American Crafts and their sister companies always put a pattern on the reverse side of the bar code strip that you can use.
Didn't I already say the word brilliant?  I'll say it again- Brilliant!!

 And aren't the little banner pieces too cute?
I'd love to take credit for creating them and stitching on them, but believe it or not they come this way!
They are called Flutterbys and are from the sheet below.  They come punched, you just gently tug and pop the strand out, and they're connected by the string.
Love love these.
