My first design called Artsy Crafty, features my daughter Adriane and her very good friend making pottery ice cream cones. The light colours were a perfect fit for these goofy photos.
Don't you love that Ice Cream cone from my Silhouette? I used my sewing machine to create the cross hatch pattern in a contrasting colour of thread. The Artsy and Crafty fonts are also cut with my fabulous machine.
This line inspired me to use lots of Kraft cardstock, in addition to the title and cone in Artsy Crafty, I used it as a background for my little beach bum. I splattered white acrylic paint and layered in a few doilies and some distressed edges and ink.
The butterfly border is comes from a sheet of garland all sewn together! You just snip what you need.
I also used another doily, one of the tags on the kraft card to make this unique wedding card.
This line also has some great vellum..remember vellum? The cloud vellum in the this line was one of my favourite parts! I used my sewing machine to adhere it to the back ground after tearing the ling edge. The stitches replaced any adhesive I might have needed to use. I also loved splatering a rainbow of coloured watercolours on the white background. (I hope you come into Two Scrapbook Friends to see how this can be acheived on Wednesday, May 23th between 6 and 8 pm).
I was inspired to make this birthday card too.
I hope you will enjoy using Dear Lizzy as much as I did!
Until next time, keep doing what you love!
