Christmas in July


The Dear Lizzy Christmas line turned out very merry. Featuring a vintage and nostalgic feel, this line focuses on the hand-made Christmas traditions of home. Which resembles how we celebrate Christmas in our family. It has a classic color palette with a few cool touches added for good measure. Designs include popcorn garlands, wintry wonderlands and poinsettias.
This is just a peek. I love one of the stickers that includes an old car with a tree tied to the top. My dad loved our family tradition of picking out the perfect fresh cut Christmas tree every year. Collin and I still continue that tradition today.




The Dear Lizzy Christmas collection features unique products such as Mementos metal embellishments, Delights paper flowers, metal rose brads, mini pearl brads, Mixtape decorative tape and Bits tags, and favorites like patterned paper, foam and glitter Thickers, assorted brads, glitter buttons, specialty ribbon, clear stamps, Details, Minimarks rub-ons and Remarks stickers.
There's even a complete Christmas Card Kit that includes 40 cards and envelopes and coordinating card embellishments.
Hope you're humming Jingle Bells by the end of this post... and feeling Christmas-ey in July.

Dear Collin said...

This is awesome, by around June my wife starts saying, "It's almost Christmas!!!!!" If scrapbook products were baseball cards, this line would be my Kirby Puckett rookie card.

Baird Family said...

Excited for the card kit! Thanks so much!
p.s. Who's Kirby Puckett?

LOVE the paper and the stamps A LOT!!! Because you mentioned your christmas tree tradition I just have to show you my tree from this last year. Its so Po-dunk, hill-billy, alaskan that I think you and C. may find it amusing! --- http://kipp-n-ducky.blogspot.com/2009/12/christmas-decor-and-my-awesome-tree.html

Merry Christmas in July!!! I love it! I hang out with a group of gals on a chistmas preparations board where we celebrate "Rudolf Day" on the 25th of each month. It is a day to do a few things through out the year to prepare for Christmas so when it arrives, it is WAY less hurried and stressful. My husband is used to it now and I think secretly looks forward to the occasional new recipe I try out for the holiday season. On the 25th, there are no complaints about my holiday music lol. Can't wait to get my hands on this line for our holiday scrapping 2010!!! I {heart} the glittery holly!!!

reminds me of Christmases gone by....love the colors, the embellies and the nostsalgia of my young life and the family Christmases. Thank you for designing the line to invoke just that feeling.

Natalie Winterstein said...

Love it! Christmas goodies are my FAVORITE to craft and collect! ;)

Kirby Puckett! He used to play for the Minnesota Twins (baseball), went crazy and passed away a couple years ago, I believe?

Jen Fox said...

HA! I was actually singing "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" by the time I got to your last sentence!

Love the collection, and will definitely get some in the shop... I don't think I'll ever get enough of the penant banners! Congrats on another fabulous reveal... Can't wait for your posts from and after CHA!

LOVE IT!!!! Classic Christmas feel with some modern update to it...which is what I love with you. This just makes my season bright...teehee. I can't wait! Even though Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, the event I look forward to ALL year is the day after Thanksgiving at the Xmas Tree Farm. I LOVE IT! Your line totally reminds me of my mom (with the poinsettias) and getting our fresh tree (favorite family tradition that makes my girls and I squeel with delight). Thank you for more Dear Lizzy + AC!

Judy said...

Love your new Christmas line....was just wondering if you have ever thought about doing your awesome products in digital.
Here in Aus (where I live) a lot of local scrapbooking stores have closed down and it is getting harder to buy quality paper scrapping items.

Genny V said...

Camilla said...

I've had Christmas on the brain lately too (maybe it's the 100 degree heat), and this line couldn't be more perfect! I love the vintage feel, and it's just so classic and festive. You've done it again! :)

Stacey said...

I love it! I also wanted to thank you for some fun t-shirt ruffle inspiration from one of your previous posts. I covered some stains with some ruffles on my daughter's shirt. :) http://stacey-scraps.blogspot.com/2010/07/ruffled-t-shirt.html Thanks!!
