Memories Documented Layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

Goodmorning lovelies,
It's been awhile since my last post and also since I was last creating but I am back again.... and this time with a wonderful mood board by the amazing Dusty Attic.
This mood board is a stunner as I love yellow & black to create with. For this layout I used a picture my aunt posted on Facebook of my grandfather and herself "OH" how I love to scrap old pictures especially if they are from my own family.

Memories Documented: 
Did you already play with us this month at the Dusty Attic blog? If not you must give it a go because you could win a $100 give voucher and I have to tell you it's worth it because Jennifer designed a bunch of new chipboard pieces lately and.....they all ROCK!

Here is the mood board: 
 What I love about this board is the saying and all the different patterns. For my layout I used different Maja Design papers and the NEW flower bundles from Prima and a bunch of Finnabair products and Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. 

Firstly I all gessod my chipboard pieces to later on inked them with Dusty Attic's acrylic paint those paints are amazing WOW. Lately I am a addict for paper straws hihihi they add so much to your work next to all the beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard pieces. 

I also stamp a text stamp on my corner swirly for a extra touch.....I did use a bunch of mixed media products to compliment my work!

Dare to Dream Layout for ***The Dusty Attic*** + Playing at Prima Marketing BAP

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I would like to share another layout created with some amazing chipboard pieces by "The Dusty Attic" which are by far my favorite chipboard there are in this industry. I just love that Indian Arrow so much..... This time I used the pretty "French Riviera"collection by Prima Marketing and a lovely picture of my aunt when she was just a little girl look at that phone....we can't imagine that now right? with all the moblie stuff nowadays......   

Dare to Dream: 
As you see here I placed the word "dream"on that arrow which I first decorated with some treat.....I cut of the s from the word dream because of my tittle Dare to Dream.....Don't you just love the bubbles you can do so much with them here I just colored them with pretty Dusty Attic acrylic paint and added some gems of the same collection. 

This is a very simple layout for me because I only sprayed some ink and stamped on it and that's it I didn't use any paste and other mixed media stuff here. Don't you just love how the burlap flowers compliment the chipboard pieces?  

I really enjoy using the text tabs & tags because you can tug them in anywhere you'd like like I did here next to my picture and underneath my flower cluster. The buckle is a little something extra I added to make it more vintage. 

With this layout I am entering this months Build-A-Page at the Prima Marketing blog for this layout I used the pretty French Rivera collection. All the flowers are Prima too plus most of the embellishments too....this is the sketch:

Just For You Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning dear friends, 
For today I'd like to show you a card that is a different style as you normally see from me. Without any distressing of the edges and with black outlining of my pretty papers. For this card I used the pretty "Vintage Spring Basics" collection by Maja Design. Last week I got my allotment dies and this time I used two of them on my card. 

Just For You: 
This was such a easy & fun card to make. Sorry for not keeping my promise to make a card with other papers then Maja Design but I am just so hooked lol.   
The flower centers are made with a large diamond gem which are so pretty to use if you want to add some shimmer onto your card. On my card I also sprayed some shimmer spray and and added some star dust stickles on my just for you phrase to make it more shiny. 
Cheery Lynn Design dies used:

You Shine {remember today} layout created for ***The Dusty Attic & Maja Design***

Goodmorning lovelies,
How nice of you to come by my I would like to show you what I created for the lovely Jennifer {owner of The Dusty Attic} her 40th birthday. The amazing Jen the design team coordinator  aka also her friend had such a wonderful idea of creating a 12x12 book for Jennifer. Were all the design team members would make a layout for her as a gift and then she would give it to her on a retreat on the 23rd of September. So we all made a layout with a picture of Jennifer on it and I have to tell you they all rock wow....she will be so surprised and I can't wait to see her face when she opens the gift....

Some ladies will be a little later in posting their work. Here is my layout:
 All using dusty attic goodies of course ;-)

You Shine {remember today}
 For this layout I of course used all Maja Design papers which is my all time favorite brand. This time I took out the lovely "Vintage Summer Basics" & one sheet of the "Vintage Autumn Basics" collection to create this layout with some lovely flowers by Petaloo en spray's by Lindy's Stamp Gang. For the chipboard I used a variety of rust paste, acrylic paint & embossing powders.

I used a lot of mixed media techniques on this layout and used products like tissue paper, ink, stamps, sprays, art stones, glass glitter on my layout. If you know me a little by now you know I really like to incorporate metal embellishments on my work and on this layout I used a whole bunch of those as you can see.

 I feel really special to be working/designing for three amazing crafting companies that I sometimes feel like I am dreaming. The products they offer are such a blessing to design with. I am planing on giving a class on how I make my layouts to a bunch of Dutch ladies in the near future of course using Maja Design papers, The Dusty Attic chipboard & Cheery Lynn Designs dies....I will let you know as soon as I know what date and then you will see it on my Facebook page.

 Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I hope you have a lovely Sunday I am off to work in a bit and on Monday I will be leaving for a week attending our son's school camp since it's his last yeah before he goes to high school.
