February Top Five #3 -Doily Days

As part of my year of INSPIRATION, each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month.

Mama came out to scrap with me for a couple of days in early February. As y'all know, I've been enjoying using doilies on cards and layouts lately, so I mentioned to Mama that we should use a doily on all our layouts because it's FUN . . . and I have amassed quite a stash recently.

We had a great time creating a bunch of layouts and used a doily on almost every one!


So, of course, I had to use several doilies on the layout about our crop together, which we started calling "doily days."


I printed a filmstrip of photos showcasing some of our layouts along with a photo of me & Mama in my craft room.


The problem with these doilies is that there are 75 in a package. That's a lot of doily in one color, but I've found that sharing them is a fantastic way to keep the stash in check . . . and reserve room to add more colors! Have you used any doilies lately? If you could only choose one, which color doily would you pick for your crafting?

I have not used any doilies lately but think they would look great in a mini album or too! :) Love your "doily day" with your Mama and your layouts!

Well, you've probably already guessed that I'd be singing the praises of the doily! Such a great way to ground other elements on the page. I only have white and one red heart shaped one I'm saving for just the right occasion

I use doilies occasionally, but not very often. Thus, my collection is still plentiful!

I don't have any, but these look great on your pages. You could always use up some on a cakestand?

If I could only choose one - it would be white - because I could paint or spray or stain it to any color... and white is all I have. Doilies don't seem to be all that popular around here and I've only been able to find one style at the Dollar Stores.

I love that photo of you and your mom. I have quite a few styles of white doilies and use them for entertaining more often that in scrapbooking. I have a few red and pink ones in my scrapbook stash, but I don't think I've ever used one.

These are all great! My new scrapbooking goal is at least one layout a week. I organized my 2014 photos the other night and will jump in to them soon.

I have used a few recently, but can only get them in white here...I tint them with ink pads! Xx

Great layout! I've been using doilies, but I spray the White ones with mist to change up the colours.
