It's me, Michelle, here! I'm the owner at A Million Memories (if you didn't know that). I've been dreading this blog post, but it's time. After much thought and consideration, my family and I have decided to close A Million Memories. My family life and priorities have changed so much in the past few years that I haven't been able to put my full attention into it anymore. My kids are getting older and we just don't want to miss any more time with them than we have already. It's been an amazing ride. If you don't know our story, here's a little skip down memory lane.
I still have a few more projects in progress, using this fabulous line, but wasn't ready to show them just yet. Thanks for stopping by.
Today Marie is going to provide us with a ton of inspiration for our scrapbook pages using the Dear Lizzy Neopolitan line from American Crafts.
For this page Marie cut up some of the elements from the Sunny Skip paper to create the block elements.
This week we are going to put the spot light on the new Dear Lizzy Neopolitan line from American Crafts. To start us off here are a few projects from Michelle Philippi.
The two projects below are wrappers for a box of bottle caps that she made for the daughters of a friend of hers.
Tip from Michelle: "I've got some vintage trim here topped off with some fun baker’s twine. I take big chunky trim and finish it off with baker's twine often - it's a favorite look of mine."
For the project below Michelle wrapped a gift in tissue paper and then covered it with White Rag Organza Flower trim, then added a cute tag featuring one of the jars from the Twinkling Lights pattern paper.
For this next project Michelle took a kraft coffee bag, covered it with some Dear Lizzy Neopolitan patterned paper from American Crafts and then embellished it with coordinating stickers and pretty bits and tied it off with some yummy gray satin ribbon.
If you didn't receive our email tonight, here's a quick run-down of the new Lily Bee products that we have in stock now. Here are a few of my personal favorites FIRST! I adore the Chevron stripes, the polka dots and the subtle floral patters. SO SO pretty and versatile!
Here's a run-down of the collections. The thing that I love about Lily Bee is that they are never too "Matchy-matchy" (if that makes any sense), but yet they always work perfectly together. They always have backsides that are a little less busy than the front-side, so I always end up using everything that I get from them. I personally don't get to scrapbook as often as I would like and this is one manufacturer that I always tend to reach for when I do have the chance to scrap.
You can click on each of the photos and it will take you to a link in the AMM store for each line. They are GORGEOUS and just take a look at some of the projects. They are fun, tell a story and just look so design easy!
BUTTERCUP IS SO PRETTY! The papers look pretty detailed, yet solid and easy to work with. You can again, click on the photo and it will take you to them in the AMM store so you can get a closer look.
OH GOSH ~ Isn't Double Dutch just the CUTEST?! I LOVE the red and blue in this (I'm always a sucker for red and blue).
