Totally Pawsome layout created for Dusty attic October Moodboard

Hello Friends, welcome back to another layout share. Today I am sharing my take on this months gorgeous Moodboard, such stunning earthy colours. I love playing along with all the moodboards as all the hard work is done for you, deciding on the colour combo.

Totally Pawsome

I started this layout by adding black gesso to the Heart Attack Stencil. Once dry I added my photo to the middle of the stencil and worked on my design from there. The leafy Garland was painted with some Dusty in Colour Forrest and layered below my photo. I knew exactly what title to use for this layout and all I did was painted it in some metallique paint and alsoplaced it below my photo on top of the Leafy Garland. Next I started working on my flowers which are made from Foamiran. I made several different sizes using a combination of stamens and beads and arranged my around my photo. The couple of cat chippies were covered in distress embossing powder and lightly smeared with some gold wax to highlight and give it some grunge. The little paw prints were also covered in distress embossing powder in a different colour. Finally I added the little leaf stems which were just painted with some olive Dusty in colour paint and tucked them among my flowers. Finally and added the little cats in between the flowers also on both the left and right sides of my photo.

The best thing about Memories is.......layout created for The Dusty Attic

Hey there everyone and welcome back to the blog. Today I would like to share with you a layout created solely using Dusty Attic Chippies and Stencil. The only other product I used was a few 49 and Market flowers, paints and embossing powders.

The Best Thing about Memories is making them.

Once I picked all my Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces I went about layering them all together to create a frame for my photo. Once I was happy with my design I glued it all together and covered it in a layer of black Gesso combined with some texture sand as I wanted to give it a bit of grunge.
Once this was dry I sprayed it with a couple of different ink sprays and waxes. For my background I used some black cardstock and added the Sunburst Stencil and some heavy white gesso. I than placed my chipboard frame on top of that, covered the frame on top of the photo, the sentiment and the stars with silver embossing powder and added a couple of 49 and Market flowers.

Product list:

So there you have it, a little different for me but I like how it turned out.
Until next time

My Heart Smiles with you - layout created for Dusty Attic September Moodboard

Hi there Dusty Fans and welcome to the blog. Today I would like to share with you my version of this months gorgeous moodboard. I just love the gorgeous dark and moody colours in this palette.

As you can see I have used lots of gorgeous Dusty Chippie to design my layout and added some pretty 49 and Market Flowers and Laser Cuts, the cute photo just topped it all off.

I used both pieces in the Floral Frame Set #3 but cut apart the larger piece. I then added some metallique paint and wax. The title was embossed in some glitter embossing powder. 

Thanks so much for dropping in.

Until next time.....

Picture Perfect layout created for 49 and Market

Hi there 49 and Market fans, thanks heaps for dropping in once again. I am very excited to share with you my latest layout, “Picture Perfect”. This layout uses mainly the gorgeous papers and laser cut shapes from the Vintage Remnants Collection.

"Picture Perfect" by Hetty Hall

I started by randomly stamping images from the ‘Rations Stamp Set’ and embossing it with white embossing powder. Next I started on my design using the Laser Cut Shapes from Frame Set No 03, layering them with dimensional tape. The Laser Cut Shapes make it so easy to embellish, they just pop out of their sheets, too easy, love it!

Black Gesso was added to my flowers, little by little drying the layers in between so they don’t stick together. Once completely dry I randomly rubbed on some gold wax and for a finishing touch I added just a tiny bit of metallique paint to give it a touch of colour.
I added my flowers as well as my photo with a piece of burlap to my layout and finished it off by adding some die cut leaves, twine and prills.

Technique Tuesday - Shaker tags created for Kaisercraft

Hello and welcome back to the blog, it is Hetty with you today sharing my very first Technique Tuesday blog post.
Today I would like to share with you some shaker tags using the cute Peppermint Kisses collection.
Products Used:
Papers: Peppermint Kisses Collection: PP1075 Paper Pad|CT969 Collectables|
KC Products: Permanent Black Kaiser Ink|Kaiser Christmas Sentiment Stamps|Kaiser pocket pages or album inserts|Kaiser Die Cut Machine|Kaiser White Cardstock|
Other: Fuse Tool|Punch Tool|Tag Dies|Eyelets|Glitter|Thread|Washi Tape|
Start by die cutting to large tags from your white cardstock.
Next cut large tag from chosen printed paper from the paper pad and lay the smaller tag in the middle of the big one as seen in photo below.
You should now have something like this:
Glue the two white tags back to back (I like to use two to for sturdiness) add the ‘from – to’ sentiment to the back of the white tag.
Glue the printed front onto the front of the white tag and you now should have something like this:
Next grab your pocket page or album insert and add your large tag on the top. Add some washi tape to hold it in place.
Run your fuse tool along the sides and the bottom of the tag but not the top sides just yet as you need to insert your tag first.
Trim closely to the seam but leave a big gap at the top. You should now have something looking like this:
Insert your tag and add other embellishments like glitter and whatever else you would like to add to your shaker tag.
Now add the die back on top and line it up so you can finish the top edges.
Trim off excess plastic. Punch a whole through the top, add an eyelet and some ribbon or thread. Embellish the outside with your favourite pieces from the collectables range.
That is it, you are done. I hope you liked this tutorial. These tags are so fun to make and the best part is they are reusable. Write on the back with a permanent marker and it wipes off again easily with some methylated spirits or something similar.
I made a special display box so I could store my cards, gift cards and tags. Such a cute range, perfect for kids and kids at heart.
That is it for me today – Happy Crafting!
Until next time…..
