just a peek at... Enchanted


We couldn't quite contain ourselves and wait until the craft and hobby show to show you the two new Dear Lizzy + American Crafts lines. This first one was such a fun project to work on, with designers Richard & Clarice... Enchanted!
It's beautifully sophisticated with whimsical florals, lace cut papers, and eclectic key & teacup embellishments. I love some of the new products including plastic rose brads, pretty decorative tape, metal embellishments, fabric brads, ticket journaling cards & of course rub-ons and thickers.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the charming elements from Enchanted.





One of my favorite parts while designing the line was reworking old adages and giving them a twist. Like the stamp above says, "The best thing in life is love" or "Stop and frolic in the roses." I'll show more of that tomorrow.

It's been a thrill designing projects and pages with it for cha. Let me know what you think... I hope you like it!

I love the collection. I especially like the metal embellies and the stamp set. That metal tea cup with the pink flowers is adorable as is are the tags and the keys and...you get the picture.

I saw the sneak peak at the AC blog site and flipped out! I left a comment and thinking back...I'm SO embarrassed cause I sound like a total freakazoid nutjob. I adore your work...and you! Enchanted is COMPLETELY WONDERFUL! And, I love you and AC so much. Thank you!!!!! I feel it's such a reflection of you...classic charm and love, vibrant, and whimsical. Sorry for such mushy-ness. But, I loved your spring line and this is just such BLISS for me. You have combined so many loves of mine. And, I can't wait to use it for my sister's prego and baby shower albums. You are so wonderful! Keep the design lines coming please!!!!!!! Do you know when this will be released for sale? Hope you're feeling great...Miss Prego! Have a wonderful week.

I think it's gorgeous! I've been an AC fan for a long time but when they added you to the mix it was pure genius. I've loved the spring line and it's become one of my favorite collections ever and this one is just as beautiful. I even got a Dear Lizzy layout picked up for pub in Scrapbook Trends :) You're releasing TWO collections? Be still my beating heart. I can't wait to see the rest ♥

Julie Campbell said...

Ohhh! I saw these the other day and fell head over heals in love! I wish I could snatch the entire collection TODAY! Great job! It's perfect!

RiNNE said...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKK!! I am in LOVE!!! Wonderful job!

I have a question.... any plans to make a 'boy-ish' line soon? I'd love to see your take on it. I'm a girly girl who just happens to have a son. :)

Scrapamum said...

OMG I LOVE all of it! I can't wait to get my paws on this line!!!

Michelle said...

Love this so much-it reminds me of liberty fabric and those rosebud brads are bee-utiful!

DeAnna said...

Oh! It's so pretty! It's a shame I have two very boyish boys ;D They like cars and dirt and it's so hard to use roses on pages for them! I did manage to get flowers and butterflies into my latest page though :D Maybe I just have to do more pages for ME!!

I love it already, at first I thought by peek that the first photo might be the only preview. I am in love with the floral paper and all those gorgeous metal accents! I'm sure I'll be bringing home an armful of products once it hits the shelf just like I did with the first Dear Lizzy line.

wowschow said...

So excited for your new line!! So I have a semi-random question... Do you have a wide format printer that you use to print your typeing and/or digital elements before adding everything else...or what do you do? I am trying to figure out what to do myself...
