Jade – Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

The American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic Collection is so much fun with modern patterns and colors, combined with softer pastels and flowers! There are journaling and patterned cards, phrase garlands, large tags, chipboard shapes, stitched ruffle strips, and even some thickers! I loved combining the different elements and textures for my layout – it certainly added lots of dimension!

Here is this week’s sketch.

And here is my layout:

Mid Week Mojo Jade #8

I love the fact that this collection allows you to create girl AND boy pages. The colors range from creams and pinks, to soft blues, greens and yellows, with the patterns being versatile too! I knew I wanted to use the ruffle strip on my layout somewhere – I just love the texture and it comes complete with the banner and buttons on it too! They have done all the thinking for you!

There are lots of fun elements in the chipboard pack – I used the heart, the arrow, the photo frame and the sentiment. The ‘life’ wording is actually one of many large tags in the collections, which I backed with some of the colored paper.

Lastly, I fussy cut the triangles from a sheet of the patterned paper, and added a line of stitching running through them, for some more interest and texture to the page.
