Product Remix: Dear Lizzy – 5th & Frolic

We Are the Tooth Fairy (closeup)

Sometimes you run across a perfect scrapbooking line. Dear Lizzy’s 5th & Frolic is that line for me right now. It’s like a siren, constantly beckoning me into my scraproom, and I’ve been choosing to scrapbook those of my stories that 5th & Frolic will help me tell.

Are you loving this line, too?

But what about our other products that are just a little older and may not be exciting us quite as much?

Do we abandon them?

No! We mix them in!

Below are a bunch of products you might have. Look at all you can do with this product remix!

First is a sneak peek of a page I’m still completing for an upcoming video tutorial for Paperclipping Members…

  1. Dear Lizzy: Neapolitan
  2. My Mind’s Eye: Be Amazing and Be Happy brads
  3. October Afternoon: Alpha’s
  4. Amy Tangerine: Glitter Foam Thickers
  5. Heidi Swapp: Sugar Chic

Anything not numbered is 5th & Frolic.

  3. My Mind’s Eye: Be Amazing and Be Happy brads

I have a 3-part system for storing patterned paper and my main way to store and choose it is choose my by the mood of the patterns to help me tell my stories visually. I organize the rest of my scrapbooking supplies by design function or theme. But I also like to have periods, often related to a holiday or season, when I pull out some specific supplies I want to dive into for a while. In that case, I keep them in 1-3 piles on a table for quick access and easy remixing!

Right now, it’s my Dear Lizzy’s 5th & Frolic, along with some of my older lines I want to put a bigger dent into. You probably have some of these, too. Look how well they go together…

Product_Remix7
Project Life’s Clementine + Dear Lizzy’s 5th & Frolic – My camera decided to emphasize and exaggerate the subtle variations in the blue greens and pink reds. While they still look good together as pictured, in real life they’re very similar.

Product_Remix_DearLizzy3
If you still have Dear Lizzy’s Neapolitan line, you can mix them right in with your new 5th & Frolic. They go so well together you’ll forget which is which!

Product_Remix5
Pull out just the blues, greens, golds, and tans from your 5th & Frolic set to pair with My Mind’s Eye: Follow Your Heart, Be Amazing. Boy layouts!

Product_Remix6
Or keep the pinks, too, and put it all with some My Mind’s Eye: Follow Your Heart, Be Happy.

Product_Remix4
The leopard and zebra stripes might be a little too sassy for the sweet tree swing and jars of hearts by Dear Lizzy, but look at the rest of Heidi Swapp’s Sugar Chic papers! It looks as if Heidi and Liz chose their color palettes together!

Product_Remix9
Focus on the blue-green, golds, and tans to mix 5th & Frolic with My Mind’s Eye: Lost & Found, Sunshine.

Product_Remix8
Or use the pinks and tans with My Mind’s Eye: Lost & Found, Blush. I think that look so, so sweet!

Click here for a glimpse of a layout I made with these pinks, and see how it contrasts with the original line.

You probably have other supplies in your own stash, as well. And don’t forget your technique products.

What do you have that you can mix in with the 5th & Frolic pieces?

Not comfortable mixing and matching product lines and patterns? I have lots of videos on this subject in the membership, and this month I’m going to do a new tutorial for Paperclipping Members on how to mix patterns.

Motivated to start playing? Have fun with your own 5th & Frolic remix!

Shine On,
Love,-Noell

    Thanks for the reminder that older products can still be a great match for newer lines. I’m trying to focus on using what I already have this year and you’ve given me some wonderful ideas for mixing older supplies in with newer ones. I was hoping to really limit my purchases this year, but your CHA videos already have me working on a wishlist for some of the items you featured! Thanks as always for your great coverage and ideas (and I guess I’ll just try and stick to my budget!)

    Thanks for the great ideas. I also took a great class from Shimelle Lane on remixing patterned paper lines. It was amazing!

  • Betsy

  • Carmelle

I cannot believe how fast you are to have time to talk about the old and new products. That’s a really good idea. I wish I could follow ev erything like you do. Thanks!

    Love your samples here – can’t wait to see the new video. I have LOVED all the CHA videos too. Thank you for all you do!

  • Marie

    Remixing is so necessary for those of that refuse to purge those papers we bought and still love and will continue to add to our collections because that is what we do when designers ply us with more goodies! I hope you’ll share more videos like this. Thanks!
