A Love Potion While Thinking of You

Good Morning,

My daughter laughed at me when I started to make this card. She thought a paper doily on a card would look funny. After I showed her my "Love Potion" creation she stopped laughing and decided they were a neat embellishment to use.
Have you ever used a paper doily on your project? This was a first time (if I have used one before it was quite some time ago since these have been in my stash for at least a year) and I am still trying to figure out the best way to adhere them. I used a stick glue and it was all over my hands as I pressed down to get the creases out. Yuck! If you have tips, please let me know!

Martha Stewart paper ~ In Key and Heart pad
white, cream, and black card stock
pink doily
Mini Monsters cartridge ~ princess (p. 47) cut at 2 1/2" and cauldron (p. 67) cut at 1"
Martha Stewart heart punch
Spellbinders lacey circles
white and pink heart ribbon
red heart button

I used scraps for this card. I also have a box of die cuts that are collecting, so I decided it is time to use them. I am going to sort through them and try to incorporate a couple pieces each week. I used the tag for this card. I think it came from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I sure do like the design of the cut. I tried using a gel pen to add the white dots. I definitely need to practice with that pen, but I can see why so many people add faux stitching with it. It makes it "pop".

Exciting News...
I am pleased to be able to announce that I was selected to be a part of the Made Especially for You design Team. Our first challenge will begin Monday, February 6th. Looking forward to this opprotunity along with new challenges. Thanks Ashley!

Stay Creative,


  1. What a cute "potion" card! The other card is very elegant. Congrats on getting chosen for the design team.
    I use doilies occasionally on cards. I only put glue on the solid paper and I usually use my ATG. I let the lacy part of the doily remain loose.

  2. What an adorable card! Love the little love witch!!
    Congrats on the DT!! I know you will be awesome!!!

  3. What a great Valentine's Day card! Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon.

  6. Congrats on being chosen for the DT.. I have used the dollies but since you asked how people put them on, of course my mind with blank... Lol it's been a while since I used one, but I love the way they look... Your valentine card is so cute...

  7. Congrats Georgiana! Can't wait to see what you create there.
    I too would love some tips on adhering those doilies. I sure made a mess with mine. LOL
    Your cards are great. I love that love potion.

  8. Hee hee. So cute! I love that little witch (fairy?) cooking up some love potion for Valentine's Day. I never would have thought to use a doily either - but it totally works! Way to think outside the box! :)

  9. How adorable!!! I've used a paper doily once. I need to use them more. I really like you heart shaped one. Will hunt for some of these. Love the cute witch with the red heart. Love that heart paper and then the striped behind it. The sentiment is really cute. Love your other card, too. Congratulations on the new DT!! That awesome! Thank you so very much for playing with us at Paper Playtime!!!! :)

  14. What a cute card!!! Very fun way to use that witch- I never would have thought of it for a Valentines card- clever! :)Amy

  15. Both cards are great G! I love doilies. I've used them in scrapbooking, but I don't think on a card. I have a lot of scraps and lots of cutouts too, that I should try to use, but somehow they don't ever seem to fit the bill. I'll keep trying. Wow, congrats on the design team news! You're super woman!!--Pat

  16. Love the potion card she is just an adorable witch.

  17. Georgiana congratulations on being chosen for the design team you will be a wonderful addition. Thanks so much for linking up your adorable card to my challenge this week. Genius using the witch and the sentiment! There is a little zip glue pen has ball point tip think I would try that for the doily. Have used them yet but they are on my to do list. Karen

  18. Congratulations on your new DT position, Georgiana!! Both of these cards are so beautiful!! I love the adorable love potion card...the doily looks fabulous!! :)


  19. Both are great. Love the background paper you used on that second card.
    The first one is just adorable!! What a cute little "love potion" card. Love how you used the doily on there. I've never done that before and think yours looks great!
    Thanks for joining us at Belli Challenges.

  20. Congratulations on your new spot! How exciting for you!
    I love your sweet little card! The doily looks fabulous! I've only ever used a doily once, and only adhered the middle with a touch of glue.
    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I'm taking a break from the medical reviews this semester in order to do the other job (which I LOVE). As for the projects - I had a day between orientation and beginning the position and crafted like crazy to finish my projects!!
