Out and About

My goodness September all ready ladies
Today I'm sharing a layout, using the lovely
This one can get a bit messy, so have some wipes at hand

First I cut out, one of each Petite doily, place them randomly over my base cardstock, and gave them a spritz, then removed, them to show the masked doily, don't throug the Doilies away, let them dry.
when dry randomly place, over your base cardstock, using them as a stencil, wipe any type of texture paste over the doilies,
(add some Glitz'n and glamour, glitter or just about anything to add that bit of sparkle)

Now to make our petite doily flowers, again choose four or five different dioly dies, and cut out 3 of each, use the turbo glue pen, to dot a small amount of glue, to the centre of each set of die cuts, and layer them, place aside to let glue dry. Once dry, spritz with water and scrunch each layer in to the centre, repeat this on all your sets, allow to dry a little, the gently open up your flowers.

Close up of flowers

Here I've added a favourite, from the Everyday Essentals collection; Strawbery leaf, on the leaves I dotted some Glitz'in Glamour Gold

 simply cut serval Petite Doilies in half and clued them behind my matted photo

And we're done, once you add a title, and any other bits and pieces, you may wish to add

Perfectly Petite Card

Welcome to September.
Today we're having a look at the new
today I've made a simple, but elegant.

Here we go

First off all I started with a pieces of pattern paper from the Hearts Ease 12x12 Pad,  
cut it about 1 1/2" smaller then the front of your card,
 then using the Couture Creation Corner Punch, round the two corners a the card opening, round the corners on the card also, adhere to your card front with the Turbo Glue Pen, splitting the pattern paper to the top and bottom, choose another pattern paper to fill the gap.
Now cut 2 of the Perfectly Petite Doily SO LACE , and cut them in half, place the halves along the top and bottom of the added stip in the centre of your card.
(to cover the joins, simple tape some ribbon over them)
 On to make our card centre, from the Perfectly Petite doily, I cut one Ebony Doily ,and 3 GRAMOUR & GRACE Doily, from this die cut, I have cut out the flower centres, these will layered together, spritz and bent inward, to form the flower, which I have glued on to the centre of doily
Finsihed flower, here I added the Butterfly Flourish 1, from Secrect Gardens collection, I used the small two way glue pen around the outer edge of   doily, and sprinkled a little glitter, for that touch of sprakle, to this project
 All done
