Have you noticed that doilies are everywhere at the moment?  Doilies? Those crochet things your Nana used to have everywhere?  Well, you know how the world of design lives to make everything old new again....the Doily is back.

And I must say, I rather like them!

Stampin' Up!  is of course completely on board with this trend, as you can see by the Flirtatious Product Suite.  Suite - as in, a whole range of co-ordinating stuff.  Stamps, DSP, Big Shot Dies and FABRIC.

I haven't used my fabric yet, but I'm thinking of making something like this when I do:


Here are a few cards and a 6 x 6 scrap page I have made....I am really enjoying this trend and love the new in-colours with it!

Again, I've got some photos that are well lit, others not so much because I'd already put them on my display board before I photographed them!  D'oh!

6 x 6 inch scrapbook page
Paper:  Flirtatious Speciality DSP (the pink laser cut), Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Simple Letters Alphabet, Perfect Penants die, 1 3/4" circle punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Basic Rhinestones

As you can see, I made most of these with the same colours and DSP.  I love that you can stretch out the laser cut doily speciality DSP by cutting out the pieces.  Hmm, looks like Pool Party is quickly becoming a firm favourite of mine too!  It looks good with pink, yellow, Island Indigo, Chocolate Chip, White, Red, Black...
