Happy New Year!
Hi Everyone! It's Lisa here and this is my first post as a design team girl with CottageCutz! I'm excited to share my first project with you.

This is a layout I created with a photo of my oldest daughter.

I used the CottageCutz TeaTime Doily  under the large snowflake.

My very favorite leaf die is the CottageCutz Leafy Foliage. I cut this die in white cardstock and layered them on my page.

Everyone knows I love to make my own flowers. On this project I used the gorgeous CottageCutz Zinnia, layered to create my flowers.
The die makes perforations in the paper. For my larger flowers I bent the paper on the perforated lines and inked them with distress ink. For my small centers I snipped the perforations to the edge of the flower so I would have a "fluffier" look.
I hope you enjoyed my project and leave here feeling inspired!
Here is a look at the beautiful dies I used.
