Hello! Today I have a card featuring the new Build a Flower dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I started by cutting the base from Scalloped Rectangle Reflections Boutique. Adding a little texture, I used my favorite Diamonds & Starburst Embossing Plate. The Polynesian Sails Oval doily is the perfect delicate base for my image. Above the image hovers a dragonfly from the new Tiny Things with Wings….such cute little critters in this set!
 The larger flower was created using the new Build a Flower #3 set. The flower center, as well as the smaller burgundy flowers were cut from Build a Flower Embellishment #3. Daisies being my favorite flower, you are sure to see more from the Daisy Strip in the future! Foliage from Pair of Ferns, Wreath Strip, Rose Leaf Strip, and Small Leaves #2. Tucked in the flowers is the new Hugs sentiment atop Sentiment Frame #1.

Mini Doily Fun!

Hello! Don’t you just love the new dies from Cheery Lynn Designs?! The design team has shared some gorgeous inspiration with them this week!
  One if my favorite new additions is the Mini Doily line! I decided to have a little fun with them by using them to create the background for my layout! 
 I started by using the Lady Kate Edger to create the lacy edge around my background. I cut several of the Canadian Kaleidoscope Tiny Doily, Italian Flourish Tiny Doily, and Sophie’s Heart Mini doilies, staggering the shapes throughout the background, added texture and visual interest. The Mini Pearl Rectangle Reflections Mega Die created the prefect photo matte. The Classic French Flair Silver Stacker atop the Scalloped French Flair Stacker Nesting Die is ideal way to create your own journaling block.
Dies are a quick, fun way to dress up stickers! I added a jute bow around the canning jar, then adhered it with foam adhesive. Using Daisy Strip and Small Leaves 2, I added more texture, color, and dimension. I also added some little flowers from Build a Flower Embellishment #3.

Today & Everday of the Year

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  Today I have a layout I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using the Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!


I want to share with you how I added a bit of life and texture to my fence. First I cut the Victorian Picket Fence.
I added a bit of color by using pouncers and Ranger Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone.
Next, I added a touch of Ranger Distress Paint in Picket Fence color. The distress inks blend into the paint for a softer look.
After the paint dried, I followed up with a touch of Ranger Distress Paint in Clear Rock Candy for more distressing and texture.
Here is a close up of the result.
Dies used:

Lace Light Deco Border
