American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan

{Reported by: Mandy Starner}


 
 
Just when I thought that American Crafts could NEVER top their first Dear Lizzy designed by Elizabeth Kartchner release they went and blew my mind again. How DOES she do it? This collection, Neapolitan, that was (I am assuming) named for its sweet color palette is simply amazing. I am not even kidding! The colors and prints are perfect for spring but bright enough for summer projects as well. There are even enough non-girly prints for a project or two about a boy or the love of your life. And I never in a million years would have thought that somebody could make me want to purchase vellum...ever.again. But they did! Have you seen the vellum papers!?! Wowee!And the Flutertbys (pop-out banners) and the stamps! And...(I know, that's a lot of 'ands') I am honestly afraid of even bringing up the ruffled paper for fear of passing out from the cutness! 

What I Liked: 
- The colors and variety of patterns available.
-The printed vellum! I am certain that I NEED a few of each sheet for my hoard...ummm I mean paper stash...
-  How could you NOT love the cute little jar stamp and the wicked cool roller stamp?!?!

What I Didn't Like:
Not.a.thing.

I got some Dear Lizzy in a Studio Calico kit and I used it up first. I love the colors!

Jenny C. said...

Love it! and they way you put things together... it's a perfect combination. Nice colors, love the velum.

Monika Wright said...

I would probably use some and hoard others, but don't know why I do that. I made a Smash-style mini and the Dear Lizzy papers are my favorite part of the project!

connie said...

I too love the colors and those stamps!

Renee said...

I have been drooling over this since the CHA sneaks! Love all the soft colors and the great designs and patterns. Great trims and embellishments too. This is definitely hoardworthy!

Jennifer Smith-Sloane said...

I have been coveting this collection since it came out and I saw all the great things people were making with it. I have slowly acquired the 6x6 paper pad and now a few sheets of 12x12. Embellishments are next! I would love to have more! :)

Lisa Angela said...

OMG I must have this line! Love everything esp. the colors....I would make friendship and summer themed cards with this and hoarde the rest for myself!

Fifi said...

I've ordered a few things and I'm waiting for them to arrive, I love the colours and the jars and that cloud vellum paper is a real favourite

Judean Patten said...

Love your Sisters page, MK, so sweet! And I do love the way you used the velum, it looks super fresh :) Would love to see the ruffle paper in action--it's so cute I definitely want some, but would love to use it and not jusy hoard it!

Jingle said...

I like how your pages take this line in a different approach than most of what I have seen. It's refreshing! This is a fun line!

So pretty (I'm still hoarding a little of the first Dear Lizzy line, I could see that happening this time around as well!)

I laughed out loud when you mentioned never wanting to buy vellum again, and I agree that this particular vellum is gorgeous and such a fun addition to this collection! The colors are gorgeous, and OH MY, don't get me started on that roller stamp! I really LOVE what you created! Gorgeous projects! You can tell that you really had fun with what you had to work with! GREAT review!! :)

While I'm generally drawn to bright colors, I just love pieces of this Dear Lizzy line. The chevron and banner patterns are so trendy and cute, and the strawberries and ice cream patterns are calling my name! I love the Polaroid, cloud, and jar chipboard too. This collection is so sweet! (Just as I imagine Liz Kartchner must be.) Thanks for the chance to win!

Lisa P said...

Rebecca Ednie said...

I'd LOVE to put this in my stash. But I hope I'd use it instead of hoardin it! I live the jar stamp and the velum looks so cool over the printed papers.
