Today I’m excited to share a sneak peek of my newest Dear Lizzy collection: 5th & Frolic! It will premiere this July in Chicago at the Craft & Hobby Show.
It’s only natural that each line has a piece of me and where I am in my life. The last few years I’ve been drawn to and really focusing on our family and not just because I have 3 girls which requires me to do so. haha But I strive to get up every morning and not trudge through our routine but to enjoy it. Of course I have my bad days but like the sticker above I try to… find the extraordinary in our ordinary days. If you see my albums they are filled with pages about the everyday moments and not so much events. This line really captures that, yet it is versatile enough to work with many different themes.
It’s also interesting to see that I’ve slowly gone through all the seasons and it would be safe to say that this collection is inspired by touches of fall. A season that really encompasses family, gratitude and cozying up at home.
One of my favorite parts of the process is putting the patterned papers together. Yes, I am drawn to pretty patterns and colors but I try to choose them in a way that would work with boys or girls– go with blues or pinks and reds. Or like the page above use neutral with a pop of color.
It’s also quite fun to choose what elements to include… and for this line some of what you will see include arrows, burlap, clipboards, more polaroids, feathers, house plans, typewriters and a cute boy and girl fox. Because we all know that foxes are the new owl.
I can’t wait to share more of this collection! It’s one of my favorite so far… but I probably say that about every single one. haha
