(American Crafts Dear Lizzy)

Yet another first day of school layout from last year! Looking back a year and a bit later, Addie Blue looks so young, but I remember how grown up and big she felt that day, in her cute outfit and that big back pack.

I was so excited to find all of the new Dear Lizzy by American Crafts product at my LSS a few weeks ago! It was the first time I'd seen them in person. I LIKED them when I saw them online, but LOVED them in person! 

Here I used some of the floral Dear Lizzy patterned paper, tags, the sequin trim, and cut out several blocks from one of the multi-patterned sheets. I used the small blocks up in the bows, for a folded accent beside  the title, and behind the title to make a journalling pocket. 

I stuffed ruffled tissue fringe under the cream cardstock. Love the delicate texture of this trim. I used that fab Dear Lizzy sequin trim to tie a bow under the title, and then pulled some individual sequins from the trim to sprinkled around and under the photo.

Lots more bows up top! And a Dear Lizzy tag tucked in there, too. The turquoise measuring tape is trimmed from a sheet of Dear Lizzy patterned paper, and tucked in with a turquoise grosgrain bow.

The title is American Crafts glitter Thickers, and is embellished with a Dear Lizzy gold sequin bow. All placed on one of those cute Dear Lizzy tags!

Journalling is tucked behind the title block, on a scallop-punched tag with a paper tab cut from Dear Lizzy paper. 

Close up of the gold sequins, and a little peek at the pink tissue trim.
