How to Use Doilies on your Layouts

Hi there everyone!

It's Helen here again and today I'm going to be showing
you some ideas on how to incorporate doilies onto your 
layouts and where to buy them. Here are a few of my own
layouts where I have used various different types of doilies.








Quite a few manufacturers have doilies for sale now,
I have seen them available by Kaisercraft, Maya Road
& Cosmo Cricket, just to name a few...

Of course, if you are able to crochet then you 
can even have a go at making your own!

There are also Etsy shops where you can find them.  
My 2 favourites are here and here.

If you can't find doilies in the colour that you want 
don't despair!  Remember that you can always use mists
to recolour them to whatever colour you want, so if you
are not yet sure of what you are after then buying
some in neutral colours is a good idea as you 
can always custom-dye them to suit your project!

I hope you try them out on your pages soon...
Doilies are really trendy right now!!
