Thankful for You {Cheery Lynn Die Cuts!!}

  I was so happy to be asked to be a guest of Cheery Lynn's Designs for the month of September, I've been admiring their beautiful die cut designs for some time now so I was thrilled to find out I could use them with my Revolution die cutting machine!
 
For my first project this month I thought I would do a layout using a variety of the dies. They have such amazing 'build your own' flower dies which allow you to make one large, full, frilly bloom or if you break them up like I did, you can make a few blooms in different sizes. 
 
I basically went with a large, medium and small floral design using the Shasta Daisy B-310 die cut.  I used 1 large + 2 medium to make a large bloom, 2 medium + 1 Small to make the medium bloom and 3 small cuts to make the small bloom.  I used some green chalk ink to tint the centers of the blooms to give them a slight color depth and finished it by adding a soft yellow gem to the center. I also used one of the Lace Corner Deco B - B162 pieces to give a lacey accent around my flower cluster. and a piece of the gorgeous Fanciful Flourish B-117 to finish the cluster.
 
For my other floral cluster I used a design technique that is a favourite of mine to use and that is to softly ink the area around the cluster and add a mask with some texture paste.  Here I used a script mask.  This helps draw focus into the main embellishments on the page and draw the eye into the photo. 
 
Another die that I'm crazy about is the Ivy Corner Flourish B315.  This die cut is awesome for frame and underscoring.  Here I used it to frame the floral patterned paper that I layered onto the page and also used it to underscore the title.
 
Another beautiful die that I just knew I had to have was the Window A FRM-141, it just adds such a light, airy, summery design to a page!  I added a lace 'curtain' to the design by adding the Anastasia Border B-136 along the top edge of the window panes.  I also used the lace edge along the bottom of the photo and peeking out from the pulled back paper edge at the top of the page.
 
I also used another one of the Lace Corner Deco B-162 die cuts to create a corner/border design to go all around the edges of the layout.  I simply adhered the corners onto the background paper and then used a white Signo Unibal gel pen to draw a doodled line to link them up.
 
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
The patterned papers I used were from K& Company.
 
I hope you all enjoyed my project for today!  And I look forward to sharing more fun projects with you in the upcoming weeks!

I am convinced that's it I'm done dwelling I need a die cutting machine! I have a circuit and a sillouette but they don't have these great designs! Is there a machine out there that uses pretty much any die like Spellbinders, Cherry Lynn etc...? Your page is gorgeous it just sold me :) Now have to find hubby's credit card :)
