Daydreamer Week!

AC_Daydreamer_Logo450

Experience the enchanting designs and colors of Daydreamer, the newest collection from Dear Lizzy! Wishes come true with hand-drawn graphics that highlight the collection’s ethereal playfulness. Bikes, cameras, bows, florals, and polka dots are presented in hues of pink, mint, and yellow. Soft colors provide the backdrop for bold pops of coral, red, and blue.

This collection features 24 double-sided patterned papers, two paper pads, coordinating Thickers, stickers, and a beautifully designed set of acrylic stamps. Previous favorites, including pockets and inserts, die cut shapes, and adhesive badges are joined by new items: a convenient paper crimper and a nesting die set for quickly adding fun patterns on paper.

Hand cut a heart from the bottom right then paint a border around the heart using blue watercolors. Back the heart with white cardstock that has been embossed with the Daydreamer Embossing Folder (it's got cute little banners all across it – perfect for this celebratory occasion!). Tuck two photos under the heart and embellish with stickers, wood veneer shapes, a badge, button, enamel dots, a Thickers title, the date stamped on a label sticker, journaling written on a journaling card, and more as shown.

How to: Punch a 2" square from lots of patterned papers in the Daydreamer line and trim each square into a triangle. Place two photos on the middle (very slightly off-center) of a dark blue cardstock layout base then spiral the triangles around the photos. Stitch over the triangles to keep them in place. (Putting a plug in for my STITCHED class over at Studio Calico - where you'll learn 24 new hand and machine stitching tricks and techniques!) Stamp the date on the top photo. Place a title in a curve under the photos using an assortment of Thickers. Add a wood veneer camera, "3" chipboard number and "1/2" button, bike die cut, pinwheel sticker topped with a badge, and more, around the photos as shown. Drop white spray mist over the top right and bottom left corners. Journal along one of the stitched curves.
