Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

Well over the last few months I have been very lucky in adding some new friends to the blogs I follow. Some of the ladies are trying out for a spot on the Cheery Lyn Design Team. So I thought why not I will give it a go seeing as I have a few of the Doily Dies. I thought Doily Dies were all that Cheery Lyn Designs made, little did I know that there are lots more, so go on over to and check them all out.
This is a box that I covered with some paper and then I have used a Martha Stewart around the page punch. To get the Lattice look I have used  A2 Frame Die in Lattice FRM 115,cut it out twice and joined it together. Then I have used Doily Die English Tea Party DL101 and on top of that is the Doily Die Italian Flourish DL103,that I have cut 3 times and joined them together folded them over to get the Doily to look like a flower. The Butterflies are from Exotic Butterfly small set of 3- DL113 and then I have used the Small Angel Wing-Two Layer Die Butterflies DL132A as the white background.
I don't have any of the flowers so I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Carnation Creations S5-049 to make the 2 sizes of the flowers and the leaves then added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the ends of all the flowers. The vine in the background is made with Spellbinders Borderabilities On The Vine Border S7-017.
And of course I have added the gorgeous Doily Dies Hearts from Heart to Heart DL106

 I have added Italian Flourish DL103 cut in half on three sides of the box.
I just love using the Doily Dies on Cards and Scrapbooking as well and now I have my Vagabond to cut them with it's so easy and effective, especially the small pieces that gets cut out of the dies.
I have 18 Cheery Lyn Dies now and I am looking at adding more to my collection.
I really enjoyed making this little box and I am thinking of making a few more for pressie's.
Cheers Shelley
