Dear Lizzy Ruffle Paper

Comments Off on Dear Lizzy Ruffle Paper Dear Lizzy Products, Scrapbook Pages 12x12

It was all a bit surreal and random when I started designing my own scrapbooking products. I think it went something like this…

American Crafts: “What are you up to lately?”

Me: Nothing really. Just finished a book.

American Crafts “We should collarborate on something.”

Me: “Yeah, that’d be cool.”

 and that was that. We jumped right in and I released my first line at the Winter 2009 CHA. Since then I have done 5 lines and I started on my 6th collection this past week. Balancing colors and patterns and finding new ideas for products is something that I enjoy doing at home when I scrapbook, so it’s a dream to get to do this at work designing products.

I’m excited to have this blog to share more of the details of my products and how to use them.
First up, one of my favorite products that I concepted and was so happy when it was able to be produced and manufactured is the ruffle paper. I still can’t get over it. I love it so much. A paper of ruffles? Who doesn’t?

I was inspired by fashion and home decor items and wasn’t sure if it could translate to paper but it did. The only hang up was the color. We wanted a more gradual ombre effect but since that couldn’t pan out we took what we could and happy with the outcome. It’s such a unique product and there’s nothing out there like it! There are so many ways to use it on craft projects, cards and scrapbooking layouts.

Here are some layouts that caught my eye of different ways to use the ruffle paper. 

1 Cut a stripe of ruffle paper and attach as a border under your patterned paper. Kelly Noel


2 Cut the ruffle paper into strips and attach to center of page. Tina Azmus

 


3 Another great way to use ruffle paper is as a base of your page. Use masks and spray mists to add your own unique design. Kelly Purkey

 


4 Use the ruffle paper as a frame to your layout. Wilna
