Friends Layout using Couture Creations Fantansia Premium Doily Die Collection

"Friends" are the best and I want to share with you a layout I did with my dear friend Sandy. Last year we traveled to Canada and Alaska together with our spouses and had the most marvelous time discovering and enjoying all of God's creation.
I thought the Fantasia Doily Dies would be perfect to give my layout that added dimension I so love on my projects. So I used both the Blossom and the Irish Dreams Doily Dies from Couture Creations. I cut one of each using my die cutting machine using a piece of the polka a dot pattern paper.

I used the Irish Dreams Doily Die as my title background piece.  Once I had my Irish Dreams die cut out I used my Handheld Essential to remove the small intricate pieces of the doily. I placed it on my pattern paper prior to adding my fussy cut flowers that I cut out with Couture Creations Precision Scissors.
I cut my Blossom Doily in half, using part of it to one side of my photo that I had placed on my page with Foam Tape.
The other half I used to place behind the owl I fussy cut out using my Precision Scissors. I added a bit of Glitz Glamour Red to the crown of the owl and also to all of the flower centers of my flowers that I had cut out and placed a few using the Foam Tape.
I hope you run right over, check out the Fantasia Collection, there are so many beautiful doily dies in the collection and make sure to go Couture Creations Blog, scroll through and be ready to be inspired. Also, think about becoming a follower of the blog. Hugs Pammejo

  1. Many thanks for showing us the layout. I have a couple of CC dies but find that some of them are not as easy to eject the paper from as spellbinders are. Can you give us all some tips. PS I have used baking paper, wiping with an anti static cloth. I cant find any wax paper where I live. Please help.

    1. Annamieke, I sent you a link and what Couture Creations says about using the Doily Dies. They are delicate collections of intricate designs. All doily dies will also include a piece of ejection foam, this helps to provide higher and more even pressure across each dies’ cutting surface, resulting in a cleaner cut and easily removable finished design. As you can see the dies come with ejection foam and they work perfectly when you use it. Here is a link to the other doily dies in the collection and they are gorgeous. I hope this gives you the confidence to use your Couture Creation dies by using ejection foam and not wax paper. Thank you for your comment. Pammejo
