And a project from Lesley:
“When I saw the doilies I couldn’t help but think of my Granny who taught me how to crochet”.
“I knew I wanted to do a layout about her. I used glimmer mist on the doilies to change the colour and then added a hat pin with a tag. The wooden flourish shapes are brilliant as embellishments and the words are perfect for titles. I have used UTTEE embossing powder on the heart and then stamped with a clear stamp. I have also used UTTEE on the white Kaisercraft flowers (coloured with glimmermist first and then stamped). The altered flowers have a glassy look to them and look fantastic. I found the tutorial for these here“.

And a delightfully seasonal Christmas Angel by Kerryn:
“The new Kaisercraft Crochet Doilies are gorgeous and easy to incorporate into any project. After creating my angel base from cardstock and covering it with punched strips of patterned paper I simply folded a doily over the top of the angel and used some strong glue to hold it in place.
Every angel needs a halo, right? I cut a circle from a transparency sheet and used pearl strips to form a circle on the top and on the bottom. Once again strong glue (just a little though!) is used to hold it on top of the angels head. By using the transparency sheet it looks almost as though the halo is floating on her head.
The wooden flourishes proved to be a fantastic shape for wings. A little touch of glitter to make them sparkle before attaching them to the back of the angel”.

And a cute layout from Leanne!
“Layering your embellishments over the doily enhances its ability to be a stand out feature on your layout. Here the doily becomes a little “cloud” for the hot air balloon to rest against. Its contrasting colour to the background patterned paper, draws the eye directly to it and then to the title. To make sure it doesn’t go anywhere, try attaching the doilies to your layout with machine stitching”.
