Collection Spotlight: Documentary by Dear Lizzy/American Crafts

If you haven’t checked out the September kit – Hello Hell0 – you need to! Not only does it include Crate Paper’s Wonder and Basic Grey’s Barista, but also Dear Lizzy Documentary. Aren’t these patterned papers delightful?

Hello 5

I chose my favorite Documentary papers and made them the base for a layout about my little one.

Hello 1

I included Crate Paper Wonder embellishments and Pretty Little Studio labels, but I let the Documentary papers drive the design. My favorite part of the Documentary papers, though, is the selvedge. You know, that part you usually cut off because it has all the company information and barcode on it? Well, the Documentary papers had such cute designs on the back of the selvedge that I made them a special part of my layout. Note the green triangles (I just trimmed off the top half inch of the patterned paper instead of the selvedge) and the red dotted pattern behind my banner piece. It’s a great technique for stretching your papers and including more designs.

Hello 3 Hello 2
