    I love doilies and use them a lot – in all sizes. I love to color them too, sometimes with mists and sometimes with ink. They are great for layering too, I like when small pieces of doilies are peeking out here and there. Several manufacturers are now selling doilies – in different colors and sizes. I do prefer the white ones though, they can be used on any project – white or colored by your own choice!

    What do you think of doilies? Do you use them and do you have a fav tip to share?

      I love using doilies. I have found some in different shapes and even some kraft colored ones. I like misting them, so I buy mostly white ones.

      I have found that I enjoy stamping on them lately.

      The craft ones look fab! Haven't tried them yet, I think I might need some 🙂

      I also love using doilies! I have them in lots of different sizes, mostly white, but also some kraft colored ones. I just recently got some fall colored ones that I am anxious to use. I have colored some in dark colors with mists, distressed them and used them on masculine LO's.

        I love using doilies!! I prefer the white ones. I use inks, paints and mist.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        Doilies add to anything. I use purchased ones but also die cut them. There are some beautiful dies out there.

        i do use them especially when I do romantic layouts…I haven't used them for a while. Thanks for the reminder.

          Love them! Have them in white so I can color them to my choosing. A couple of different sizes too. They're great peeking out at the edge of a layout, tucked for layering, or a few to make a design with.

            Oh yes I love to use doilies, whenever I'm at any $ Stores I always like to check the doily section so I have doilies in lots of sizes!

              Love dollies..have them in white and cut colored ones with my Cameo!

              #248411

              I have a whole folder in my Cameo just for doilies. I need to bust that out. They are great for altering with mists and inks for sure. 🙂

                I love them, myself, but I have a hard time incorporating them in a lot of my pages. Dunno why, I really should try using them more.

                  I absolutely LOVE doilies! They are so feminine and pretty. I'm especially attached to them because they bring back memories of my grandma. She crocheted hundreds of doilies and they were all so intricate and beautiful. I always think of her when I use them.

                  I keep a stock of white ones on hand, and like to mist them to colour them. I also have dies that I love for cutting out coloured ones. These are two of my favorites. They're both by Cheery Lynn.
