Finally using a paper doily...!

These seem to be everywhere on the blogosphere lately... paper doilies used on cards, layouts, projects.  I picked some up over a month ago at Michaels and brought them with me to the weekend retreat a couple of weeks ago.

I am doing my best to buy with intention, so here's my intent... to use them!  lol

So on my first card, I pulled out the Wings Level 2 Paper Pack and the January SOTM Find Your Style for the butterfly and Tea Time for the sentiment.  {The white lace ribbon is from Walmart.} 

Using the same card layout, I made a second card.  I used B&T paper from the Sweetheart and Miracle Level 2 paper packs.  The tea pot and cup is from Tea Time and the sentiment from a must-have set called Card Chatter - Birthday.

So, with me being me, I only used 1 doily so far -- I cut the one I used in half.  Why can't I just use it up???  I guess that comes from growing up with very little.  I learned how to stretch stuff for as long as I could.  And that's a really hard habit to break!  ;)


Which takes me to another topic...  after I move, I am planning to do a huge scrapbooking garage sale in my new crafty space.  There will be a bunch of tables set up, and I'm hoping that my sidelines and my upline will join me.  I'll spill the details once I have it all figured out.  It will likely be in May.   :)


Happy creating!  :)
