Ruffles


Thanks so much sharing in my excitement for the Dear Lizzy + American Crafts line. This page shows the fabulous ruffle ribbon! Wouldn't it be so cute on a bag or even a T-shirt? The background paper is filled with little hearts that I drew & the polka dot paper is adhesive backed fabric. The thickers are a glitter typewriter font that also comes in a seafoam green and brown. LOVE them-totally versatile and easy to use. Jefra took the photos and some other fun ones I'll share soon.
The journaling says: I sort of love when Quincey takes my hand and walks me around the house usually looking for her blankey or her sippy or to the kitchen for a little snack. I sort of love when Avery licks my cheek like a little puppy... it's actually really gross but makes me laugh every time. I sort of love something sweet to eat after every meal.. and I'm not picky. I sort of hate listening to voice messages and delete them before they're done. I sort of wish I could live somewhere warm all year round. I sort of hate the snow and don't think I would miss it. I sort of love when I fall asleep on the couch during a movie and Collin carries me to bed. I sort of am afraid of the thunder and you will never find me watching a scary movie. ever.

My sweet niece, Taimi, received her baby blessing last Sunday. She is so beautiful. It's quite neat to watch my little sister become a mother. I am so proud of her and love watching her and Chris take care of Taimi & take on the transforming role as parents.
(Taimi is my great grandmother's name. My great grandmother is Finnish. )

We all braved the cold for a quick photo by Collin... including Camille, me, Quincey, Ashley, Taimi, Cynthia (my mom). This is also the same day that I tripped on the ice in my heels. From now on I am wearing moon boots to church. I swear I thought my rib was broken the last few days but I'm better now. Happy Friday!!

Oh man, I am freaking out about all your products on your LO! They are sooo awesome! I can't wait to find some! Glad you are feeling better after you slipped. I slipped in public for the very first time a couple weeks ago, right on my butt! Embarrasing : )

I SORT OF--NO <I REALLY LOVE the journaling on your layout--especially the part about getting carried to bed and the lick is pretty funny

Lora Oliver said...

I am so excited about the new line and left a message enthusiastically thanking AC for working with you. You have a beautiful family, thank you for sharing their smiles with us all and I hope that you are okay after your fall.

Heathyr said...

Is that flower ruffle seriously part of your line?! If so, that stuff is going to go like hot cakes off the shelves. I am going to buy 60 of them- that's how many projects I can envision using them with.

Also, totally agree with what julie said above! I have google reader, of course, but I always go to your site and leave it up to listen to the music. I can't tell you how many artists and great songs I have found through you! iTunes must love me.

Michelle Clement said...

Oh, my. Be still, my heart - that ruffle ribbon is to die form, and so is your cute page. :) Lovely!

Keshka said...

Anna Vollmer said...

beautiful products, can't wait to get my hands on some when my scrapbook budget allows (my husband is on the job hunt).
I just wanted to know if you had any photo editing tips. I love the color you get in your photos (especially the one with your sister and her family) do you have any go-to actions or techniques?

Krista Nash said...

Whoa! I am in trouble when those become available for purchase. Move to CA. The weather is perfect. :)

Mindy said...

I seriously cannot wait for this to hit the shelves!! I don't know what I am more excited for.. The Office or this. ;)
I should really consider sneaking into to CHA just to see it sooner..
LOVE IT!

Kimberly said...

How do you pronounce her name, Taimi?

Scrapamum said...

Thank so much for sharing the details of this LO. It is gorgeous!
Ouch on the fall. I did the same thing last year as I was going in to my cousins funeral and I was 7 months pregnant. I feel your pain.

Renee Zwirek said...

Beautiful LO! Beautiful You!
When does your line arrive in stores (or online)? I can't wait!
Taimi is adorable. God bless your family. I'm sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you didn't break any ribs...how's your beathing? Being a chiropractor, I CRING when I hear about a fall. Take care of yourself & feel better! :)

Amber Zimmerman said...
