My Family

Hello! One of the things I love about my dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, the patterns work for ANYTHING…guys, girls, layout, card, new and funky, or old and vintage!
When I found this old photo of my husband and his siblings, I knew the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame would be perfect for matting the photo.
After inking and masking the edges of my base cardstock, I started with the Mega Tea Party Doily. I added lace touches to my first layer using Francesca. Wanting just a small dainty touch to the middle layer, I adhered Wedding Garter, leaving only a small portion of the edge sticking out. The last layer being the French Flair Classic Silver Stacker. For a little bit if fun, I added 5 portions from the Pennant Die. Resting near the title is the Small Dragonfly.
Anyone that knows me knows how I love to take my creations and dies outside the box! While playing with my dies this week, I created the larger brown flower using Stacker Flower #5 and a brown grocery bag! I was really pleased with how splendidly the paper was to manipulate! The center of the flower is from Build a Flower #1 Also, arriving on my doorstep was a wonderful package of scrap goodies wrapped in gorgeous hounds tooth tissue paper! I was as excited over the tissue paper as the goodies inside! I cut eight layers of the tissue paper using the smallest Sweet Williams die. Staggering the layers, I attached and fluffed! After adding foliage from Pair of Ferns, Flourish Leaf Strip, Stacker Flower #1 Leaf, and Small Leaves 2; I added flowers cut from the Flower Chain Border and a Medium Rose cut from vellum.
Other dies used: Heart Key, Two of Hearts
