{ Doily obsession }

Have you used a doily on your project lately? I have! I love them and they are everywhere. When I was in Croatia I saw these adorable doilies on Etsy.com form The Chip Chop Shop. My mom said she would make them for me!!!! Remember, she made me these flowers.

Here is my growing collection of doilies: Prima Marketing product packaging, Maya Road stamps and Doilie Transparency, Martha Stewart, Wilton, and adorable white doilies that my mom gave me.

Betsy Veldman had this awesome tutorial on how to stamp your own doilies using Papertrey Ink stamps. How fun is that!!! When I got home from my trip, I looked around my stamp collection to see how I can make something similar.
This is what I came up with...see the video. 

 Look around your own stash to see what you can use. If you don't have a circle stamp you can draw a circle any size and start from there.

 Here is a layout I created for a challenge at My Scrapbook Nook. I added my own stamped doilies. Photos are from our trip to the Arboretum this Spring.

I used My Mind's Eye and Cosmo Cricket patterned paper, Prima flowers, October Afternoon stickers, Jenni Bowlin butterfly, Elle's Studio tag.

Let me know if you have any questions. Link me to any doilies that are out there.


  1. That is a great way to make a doily by using stamps. Never thought of that! I use doilies quite a bit also and my mom crochets and made me flowers too. I am not sure I can bring myself to put Mom's doily on a LO or card;0) Even though I know it would porbaly look great...Thanks for the tutorial and great LO!
