5 Projects Using... Dovecraft Perfectly Pink!

Hi all!

Here are 5 projects using the Dovecraft 'Perfectly Pink' collection from Trimcraft. There's a bit of everything here! There are instructions on how to make them below each picture. 


  1. Add gesso across the centre of a 12x12" sheet of pink cardstock
  2. Once dry, use the packaging technique to smoosh pink spray ink across the gessoed area. 
  3. Take a pack of wooden frames and back each one with patterned paper.
  4. Arrange across the layout and stick down when you are happy with the arrangement.
  5. Print your photo and mount. Cut a doily in half and stick one half behind the photo and the other to the left of the page. Add pegs to the photo and stick down.
  6. Finish with accordion flowers, a title and other embellishments in each frame.


  1. Cut 4 inches off the bottom of a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper. Mount onto a 12x12" sheet of contrasting paper.
  2. Cut a doily in half and stick one bit on the top left and one on the bottom right of the page.
  3. Stick a length of ribbon across the top and bottom over the centre paper.
  4. Fussy cut several flowers from floral paper. Stick some over the doilies.
  5. Print your photo and mount several times onto patterned paper. Add a doily behind and stick to the layout. Add more fussy cut flowers. 
  6. Finish with a title, gems and buttons.



  1. Cut 2 hearts from acetate. Stick together with 3D foam tape around most of the edge. 
  2. Through the gap, add sequins. Seal the gap.
  3. Cut a heart the same size from patterned paper and cut an aperture in the middle. Stick on top of the shaker element.
  4. Die cut a large tag and cover with patterned paper.
  5. Stick the shaker element on top.
  6. Decorate with paper flowers.



  1. Cut rectangles the same size as a  die cutphoto frame, from acetate. Stick a photo frame to one of the acetate pieces. Add 3D foam around each edge and the inside joins in the photo frame.
  2. Add sequins into each compartment. Add the other piece of acetate to the back.
  3. Cover a card blank with patterned paper.
  4. Stick the shaker element in the centre.
  5. Embellish.

  1. Stamp a large sentiment in black ink on a card blank.
  2. Fussy cut flowers from patterned paper. 
  3. Stick the flowers on the card, around the sentiment and so they are overlapping each other and the edge of the card.
  4. Leave to dry and add a couple of small embellishments. 

Thanks for stopping by!
