Happy Dreams are Special Layout for ***The Dusty Attic*** & ***49 and Market + Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi sweeties, 
Today I am back with another layout, this time it's pretty in pink ;-) and I used some of the amazing shimmer & shine - Blush Jardin flowers on my layout. 
I really love to combine the pretty collections by 49 and Market this time I combined the "Vintage Artistry" Botanical sheet and the "Heirloom Botanicals" Sanctuary & Harmony sheets. I also used the cut out sheet from the "Flower Fairies"collection for the leaves I added in the flower clusters.
This layout is based on the Dusty Attic mood board/sketch for the month February so naturally I added a bunch of chipboard pieces. Oh wow and those stitch chippies are "STUNNING"I think I found my new love....

Happy Dreams are Special: 
Firstly I sprayed some Lindy's sprays on the back ground sheet before I stamped with a square pattern stamp, then I cut of the bottom and top of the "Vintage Artistry" Botanical sheet and punched it with my notebook edge punch and placed it on top a pink sheet from the "Heirloom Botanicals" collection. Then I took out Gabi's square stitch stamp set and stamped around the edges of lighter paper sheet.

I told you above that this layout was based on the mood board / sketch at The Dusty Attic site just take a look at this prettiness.....gorgeous right???

Most of the chipboard pieces are treated with rust paste and mica powder but some of them I just embossed but all where primed with gesso first. That cute little baby girl the granddaughter of a friend of mine. I used a couple of the clocks from the cut out sheet { heirloom botanicals } which a look so amazing on any layout.

The flowers I used are such a delight to work with and really a high quality you can also cut them apart and used them separately on your work {I know it's hard to cute or part such beauty} 
I also added some rub-ons to my work to accent the matting of my pictures and dark background stamp.

49 and Market products used:
Vintage Artistry collection: Botanical Press 
Heirloom Botanicals collection: Sanctuary & Harmony
Flower Fairies collection: Cut Out Sheet
49 and Market Flowers: Shimmer & Shine - Blush Jardin, Rustic Collection - Piontsettia Canvas Blooms. 

With this layout I will be entering this months challenge at "Lindy's Stamp Gang" I really like this months mood board so soft and sweet. And that totally fits my layout using those cute baby girl pictures.

"You and Me Together" layout for ***49 and Market*** + Playing at More Than Words

        Hi lovelies, 
Oh boy am I in love with these new beautiful flowers not to mention these papers are a delight to work with I feel really blessed to be on this design team. 
For this layout I used two collections the “Flower Fairies” In the Garden sheet for the upper part of my layout and the “Vintage Artistry” Tattered sheet for the lower part. 
Our handsome son just turned 12 on February 7th and this photo I used is very precious to me because he had a rough start in life. On this photo he is just 3 weeks old and he has a huge hematoma the size of half a tennis-ball on this head. 
That is why I am so happy that he is so healthy now…

You an Me Together: 
What is so great about the flower vines is that they are really flexible as you see on my layout. 
I bend the top part to the right side and the lower part to the left side and added my picture on top of that. The left part I bending up and down next to my picture. 
I really love how realistic the bubble stamps by Gabrielle are and I really like them on this layout because my hubby and son are in the shower.

I added a whole bunch of Dusty Attic chipboard pieces on my layout as well, especially a lot of texts and words. I treated my chipboard pieces with ink and embossing powder. I really love dragonflies and on my layout I showcased a couple of them from the “Flower Fairies” collection. On the super pretty flowers I added some glass glitter and lots of shimmer and white spays.

I also added some metal pieces and some cute “Minnie Peals” prills inside the frame pieces. I left some of the chipboard word strips just without coloring them and only colored the edges a little. On my layout I used some stencils by Dusty Attic too.

49 and Market products used:
Vintage Artistry collection: Tattered 
Flower Fairies collection: In de Garden & Cut Out Sheet
49 and Market Flowers: Sage Bouquet, Sage Blossoms, Alabaster Garden Vine & Alabaster Blooms 

With this layout I will be entering this months challenge at "More Than Words" I really like this months challenge and got really inspired by it while making this layout. I have never used a Ampersand on my layout before only in chipboard text like I did on this layout. But the word "Together" I use it all the time so that was easy for me to use again hihihi. All the ladies on the "More Than Words"design team did an amazing job on this challenge and it is really inspiring to use the Ampersand more often........

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today I hope you like my layout and are inspired by it to use your 49 and Market goodies as well have a wonderful and creative rest of the week.

With Love 10 Minute Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning everyone, 
Today I am here to share a simple & easy 10 minute card with you that I made for Cheery Lynn Designs. I only used two colors pink and black to make this card which are great colors to combine. I cut out the XL-2 Square Scalloped in two different sizes and layered pink square just a little smaller on top of that and lifted it with foam tape.

With Love: 
Then I cut out the cute flowers times two and used seven of them on my middle part of my card {the lower part}. In the centers of those flowers I added a flat back crystal gem in pink and a black silk ribbon just above the flowers. After that I cut out the word love from the Bohemian collection in black and in pink and layered them on to of each other and slightly moved the pink one to the left and also inked the edges of the pink one. Then I used the little word "with" as a rub on to the L of the word love to complete my card.

"Love Eternally" First 12x12 Layout for ***49 and Market*** & ***The Dusty Attic***

Goodmorning lovelies,
I am so excited to show you my first layout for the magnificent 49 and Market design team using the gorgeous "Heirloom Botanicals"collection. Oh I am so blessed to work for this wonderful manufacturer my fussy cutting heart is all glowing again hihi. For this layout I used a picture of my cousin her daughter who got married last November doesn't they look cute? 

Love Eternally:     
It's been ages since I fussy cut my papers and this collection lends itself to do that very much, like all the 49 and market papers do. For this layout I used the "Conservatory"sheet of which I cut out the middle part so I only use the corner drawings with the branches then I moved it around and tilted it 90 degrees because I liked the branches to go upward & downward on my layout. Then I used the "Faded Blooms"sheet to go underneath the other sheet.

On my background sheet I stamped with the pretty "Crackle Texture Set" designed by Gabrielle Pollacco and then I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to compliment the crackle paste I used. Then I stamped some of the butterflies from another stamp set By Gabi called "Butterflies are Free" on the "Oasis" sheet and cut them out to add more butterflies to my layout.
For matting my picture I used the backside of the cut out middle part of the "Conservatory" sheet & the "Oasis sheet. On the bottom of my picture I added some threads in two shades and layered a chipboard key lock by The Dusty Attic on the left corner on top of the thread.

All the chipboard pieces I used are by The Dusty Attic and I think they really compliment the pretty papers, blooms & stamps by 49 and Market. The Vintage Shades blue & sage blossoms I painted with The Dusty Attic acrylic paints to make them look more like the colors of the papers and because I painted the chipboards with that color too. The pearl corner piece was also painted with the rust paste by Finnabair and then I added some blue spots and gems.

49 and Market products used:
Heirloom Botanicals collection: Conservatory, Oasis, Faded Blooms & Heirloom Cut Outs
Vintage Shades Flowers: Cerise Bouquet, Cerise Blossoms, Sage Blossoms & Blue Blossoms
Stamps: Gabi's Butterflies are Free Set and Gabi's Crackle Texture Set

Other products used:
The Dusty Attic Chipboard:
Tickets, Doodads #4, Best Friends, Mini Words #2, Key to my Heart and Elegant Pearls

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today....Have fun and enjoy your day!

Dream Big Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning lovelies. 
Do you also love all the new releases as much as I do?? For my card today I used the pretty "Dreamweaver"die which is amazing on it's own. I wanted to make my card a little Spring like because I miss the warmer weather.  It's so cold here in The Netherlands brrr. For my card I used some Maja Design papers and some mixed media products. 

Dream Big: 
The feathers on the Dreamweaver die I cut out times two so it looks like it moves a little. In the centers of the flowers I added some cream colored prills after I stuck two layers of the flowers together. I also added some flat back pearls on the Dreamweaver.

I also cut out the Dreamweaver two times and cut out the middle and layered them on top of each other to give it more depth and then I used foam tape to lift it a little.
