If you need anything from this newest collection it’s the wood veneer numbers and shapes! Love them so. And the 12×12 paper pack, clothes pins and the Project Life kit and and… Seriously everything makes my hoarding heart happy.
All Dear Lizzy products are 40% off still… and they stocked some of the Fine & Dandy collection and Happy Place which have some cute stuff!

This new collection is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I have to admit that when I saw the Saturday collection for the first time I thought it seemed like a city/travel/getaway/weekend themed collection. But when I begin to work with it, oh well, the ideas started to flow in so many directions. It really is such a versatile collection!
As you can see here, I used the Saturday collection to create a birthday layout for my little niece. I chose a soft color palette of white, mint, pink and a pop of black to go with the theme of the layout. So cute! I love how numbers are repeated thought the collection on papers, stickers and embellishments. And they are just the perfect icon for this spread, aren’t they? 😉
Today I am thrilled to share some sneak peeks and close looks at the newest Dear Lizzy collection- Saturday! I love the colors and the crisp patterns. Happy Place had such a vacation vibe. I imagined it as if you were on vacation with your girlfriends to Palm Springs. This has a city vibe mixed through out! Before I meet with designers for each collection I come up with a story to help everyone get on the same page and illustrate it better. For Saturday, I imagined a girl who lives in Brooklyn, New York. She loves exploring the city, stashing away memorabilia from her day in a junk journal, Meg Ryan movies (which you will find a couple quotes here and there), mixing patterns, painting during her kids nap time, capturing and creating memories of her everyday! There’s a fun mix of icons to work with for a wide variety of projects. There’s also lots of numbers used in creative ways on paper and products. Including wood veneer numbers, chipboard number tags and cardstock number accents in the Bits. The puffy stickers are one of my favorites as well as the beaded strings!!! I’ll share more through out the week! Can’t wait to see how you create with it! xoxo Lizzy

As we were running out the door to a little spring break sunshine I put together an art kit, like I have loved to do in the past. Here and here too.
I snagged that striped canvas bag at Forever 21 for 7 bucks yesterday and it was perfect to hold all the goodies and my instax share. We’ll have some down time at the beach house while we eat and listen to conference on Sunday so I’m glad I remembered. I also put my selphy printer and all this stuff pictures in a bigger tote bag. I realized I forgot my album so I’m excited to pick something up when we get there.
Also I posted this breezy blue desk scene on Instagram… When in doubt, add mint. Always. The End.
It is not a secret that I LOVE to make mini albums of my little adventures around the world, or even about the little things in life. But, lately, I realized that not only I enjoy to look back at the photos, or to rediscover the story through the album, but also to bring back all the memories with gathered memorabilia along the way.
The bright transparency from the new Happy Place line, gave me the idea to make a little cute envelope out of it. This is perfect to keep some tickets, business cards or even extra photos from my last summer vacation. It was super easy to make and I love the fun look of it. Let’s take a look on the steps to make this:
1. Pick the width of the envelope and trim the paper down. I find that 4×6 or 4×5 it is a good size for most minis and it is normally big enough to fit the usual memorabilia. So, I cut the 12×12 transparency into a 12×4 stripe. You can use an envelope template to serve you as a guide as well.
2. Fold the paper to create the pocket of the length you desire, and stitch the sides. Remember to leave a couple of inches on top in order to create a folded lid.
3. Now you have the basic structure completed. The tricky part is to choose how you want to close the envelope. In my case, I punched a couple of tiny holes to add two eyelets (one on the lid and one on the pocket) with a one-inch circle paper around. Then, I used a gold string that came with the Dear Lizzy tassels to tie the envelope shut.
4. As I final touch, I attached a couple of fun tassels from the Happy Place collection.
And done! Now go and grab some memorabilia and add this to your planner, a layout, a mini album, or even to your project life album (you can always punch two holes on a side or at the bottom to add it to a ring album). Let’s bring those memories alive! 🙂 –Olatz
