No, well head there to see some awesome projects featuring these vintage beauties!
Today we’re featuring another three projects from our Design Team.
The first, from Leanne:
“Sugar Rush” layout by Leanne Allinson
Nothing shouts out to me as being more feminine than lace and pearls. So why not use it for that exact purpose! A girly layout! I have combined the La Di Da patterned paper collection with Kaiser’s new Pearl Brads and Lace.
To create a similar look on your page, try pleating a grosgrain ribbon (white) and machine stitch down the middle of its length. Cover the stitching with a pearl strip, but leave a space on the ribbon wide enough for the pearl brad, mounted with a small flower, to push through. Layer the ribbon over a strip of lace and simply adhere to your layout. Very easy, yet quite effective for a girly page!

Mini Album – Kerryn Lawson
“I used the lace to create my own background for my album cover. I laid a strip of lace over the cardstock (making sure to cover the rest of the cardstock with scrap paper) and sprayed with Maya Mist. I moved the lace and scrap paper and repeated until the front and back covers were completely covered. The inside of the album is pretty simple with lace featuring throughout”.
