American Crafts | Dear Lizzy Happy Place

Versatility - it's what I love about a good scrapbook collection. Good colors, a variety of icons that are just the right amount "themey" and a few good embellishments is what I found in Dear Lizzy's Happy Place Collection. Here are few things I've made with it lately.
Layered cards for the season. The suede mini tassels are one of my favorite embellishments this season. And I've never met a gold paperclip flamingo I didn't love.

Proof of how much I love texture and color. I wanted to create texture with a tropical feel. Rows and rows of pretty little squares frame out the photo and scream "Caribbean."

Glitter dipped die cuts are a quick and easy way to give a card some pop factor. I cut the star with my Silhouette and popped it up with foam for dimension.

Who doesn't love a glittery wand and envelopes full of confetti? These were created for my niece's birthday party and they were a hit!

Lining up rows of the watercolored die cut titles from the collection are an easy way to create a bold layout. Layers of the pretty papers and die cuts add to the tropical feel of the photo and story.

A departure from all the vacation layouts, here I used the Happy Collection to make an everyday page about the little people in my life and being a Mom. Using the same watercolored word die cut pack, I customized this one with a light pink color wash. I love that the pack of die cut words comes both pre-printed and plain on watercolor paper so that I can use it in a variety of ways!
