I know. They're everywhere right now. But I can't help but love doilies. They're girly and sweet and a quick way to add curved lines and a vintage feel to a project.
This week, Pretty Little Studio kicked off a new weekly Inspiration Challenge on their blog, and as my first design team assignment, I had to create a project based on this photo:
Isn't it lovely? Ironically, I already had this one "pinned" on my Pinterest board for gift wrapping inspiration. But it didn't occur to me to turn it into a layout...until now.
I used patterned papers from the Apple Cider collection, and I mixed in some embellishments, including a flashcard, a train ticket calendar, number tag and notebook circle.
The different shapes and sizes reminded me of the different packages in the photo.
You can play along with the challenge this week for a chance to win a $5 coupon for the Pretty Little Studio store.
While we're on the topic of doilies, I realized I never posted this photo of a door hanger I created for the Epiphany Crafts booth at CHA:
Yep, you guessed it. Doily! Along with papers from Lily Bee and letter stickers from Echo Park. I'm also pretty addicted to the Epiphany Round 14s with the Charm Settings. Here's a closer look:
It's safe to say you'll be seeing more doilies from me in the near future. I think I'm going to need a 12-step program.
The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?
