Cloche Love

I just can't get enough of this Crate Paper Portrait collection. I have used it twice already. This being the third, plus I have plans for one more layout and maybe even a card. If you remember this, from on my desk, a few days ago, you would know why I am trying to use all of this collection before I start into the new stuff. I love Crate and can't wait to bust into my Random pack, but I really want to finish this one first. I know, but I am just trying to be economical.

This layout is simple enough. I inked a pattern background sheet and cut two other pieces down to fit the page. I also inked the edges of those. The little doilies are ones that I crocheted. I added buttons and cute little sticker sayings on top. I have been using those sticker sayings a lot lately.


Like right here. Those cute hearts are punched from adhesive backed cork. I punched a smaller heart, then punched the larger one around it.


Here, I used the larger heart on its own.


And here, is just a small ring tag layered with a small heart button. The month tab was punched from a larger calendar with the EK Success Tab punch.


I was house bound this weekend, due to tropical storm Lee, so I was able to get lots done. Stay tune this week for some more projects. Maybe even something from last weeks goodies.

This is gorgeous! I love all the details in your layout and your crochet doilies are fab! I could not exercise restraint because I dove into Crate's Farmhouse collection over the weekend - just the 6x6 pad, but still. Love all of the new collections! :)
