You make me Smile - Mood board inspiration for the Dusty Attic Chipboard

Hey there Dusty Fans, welcome back to the blog for some more mood board inspiration. Mood boards are such a great way to get your creative juices flowing, sometimes I know exactly what I am going to create, other times I have got to think outside the box. This month I concentrated on the yellow, pink and grey/silver.

You make me Smile

I used some gorgeous Colour Blast paper for the background and you will find all the Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces I used below with link back to the store. I covered all my chipboard pieces with grey paint also from Dusty Attic and simply sponged it on it adds a bit of a grunge look. I cut down the Triangle panel a bit and added my photo on top of it with a piece of cardboard for dimension and placed it on my background paper. I then started playing around with my design by placing all the other chipboard pieces around my photo. I also made some flowers from white mulberry paper and dies and sprayed them with some Kaisercraft spray ink to match the colours of my layout. The leaves were die cut from white cardstock and simply coloured with some distress ink. Once I was happy with y design I stuck it all down with my trusty glue gun using lots of layering.

Breathe - layout created for Kaisercraft

PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: P2883 Pink Plaster | P2885 Ombre | P2889 Chalky | SK823 Sticker Book |
CT 977 Collectables |
Hello Kaiser Fans and welcome to my blog post. Today I would like to share with you the stunning Lily and Moss collection, love the colour combination, the prints on the papers, especially the marble effect on the Whirl paper as well as the gorgeous big leaves on the reverse of Ombre. The stamp set matching this collection is gorgeous as well, I did a few cards using these stamps which I will share with you some other time.
I used Ombre for my background paper and simply tore some Chalky paper to layer on top at the top and bottom of my background. After that I set out to cut some tiles from the Pink Plaster paper and combined with some tiles from the Collectables I layered them behind my photo. Next I started working on my design, adding both Collectables as well as images from the Sticker Book. It really is a stunning collection.

That is it for me today, happy crafting.
Until next time…

The Perfect Day - Layout created for The Dusty Attic Chipboard

A very Happy New Year to you all, I hope it is going to be a fabulous one and that you had a fantastic Christmas spend with family and friends. 

I was very lucky indeed to have been invited back for another term on this fabulous team so without further ado I would like to share with you a beach layout today seeing we are in the middle of Summer here in the Southern Hemisphere.


The Perfect Day

I simply love all the Dusty Attic Stencils, this birds stencil is no exception and I added it to my Colour Blast background paper with some crackle paste. While that was air drying I added some distress embossing powder to my fish net, sentiment and shells using two different colours. I started playing around with my design by arranging all my chipboard pieces around my photo. I then added some gorgeous 49 and Market flowers. Once I was happy with my design I glued it all down using my trusty hot glue gun. To finish it all off I added some burlap which I cut into squares and rolled so I could tuck them amongst my flowers with some string as well. Love how it makes the layout look rather rustic. Last but not least I added three of the page pebbles which I left in their original raw state.

Woo-Hoo - layout created for Kaisercraft

Hi there everyone and welcome to another blog post from me, Hetty here with you today. Birthdays are always a wonderful occasion to scrap and now it is even easier with the bright and bold new collection ‘Oh Happy Day’. Of course you could use it for any happy occasion, even just celebrating a fun filled day like I have done here, the options are endless.
PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: P2893 Fire Crackers | P2892 Time to Party | P2896 Wrapped Up |
SK822 Sticker Book | CT976 Collectables | CR 222 Curios |
This was such a fun and bright layout to make. Once I had chosen my photo I started working on my design. I always like to use photos that match the colour combination of the papers and embellishments I am working with. I cut a strip of paper from ‘Time to party’ folded it and used it diagonally behind my photo. I also ripped a piece from ‘Wrapped Up’ to add that touch of yellow and inserted it inside the previous piece I folded. Everything was adhered with dimensional tape. I then used a combination of collectables and images from the sticker book to create my design around my photo. I just concentrated on the fire cracker images with the exception of the balloons and gold sentiment. Love how happy and bright this layout turned out to be.

That is it for me today, happy crafting.
Until next time…

Beauty layout designed for Dusty Attic Chipboard

Good Morning Dusty Fans and welcome to my last blog post for 2019. Can you believe it is nearly Christmas? I don't know where this year has gone. Today I am sharing a layout created based on this month's stunning mood board and used lots of 49 and Market goodies as well as several gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces, I particularly love that chandelier and frame.

 I mainly picked the purple and aqua colours from the mood board with a touch of brown or in my case gold by simply adding some opal magic - violet to all my chosen chipboard pieces. When you add it to plain chipboard it really brings out the gold hues with a touch of violet, depending on the light. Once painted I set all my chipboard pieces aside to start working on my design by choosing my background paper and flowers, all of course from 49 and Market. I played around with my design for a while, sometimes this take longer then a while but this layout came together fairly quick. I added some white gesso to some of the flowers to soften the colours a bit and finished it by adding some artstones.

Be Kind - layout created for Kaisercraft

Good morning everyone, Hetty with you today. Welcome to the blog and thanks heaps for visiting. Today I am sharing a layout using Grand Bazaar, look at all those stunning colours, very warm and rich, just gorgeous!
PRODUCTS USED:
PAPERS: P2866 Folklore | P2868 Boho Paisley | P2870 Doorway
| P2872 Free Spirited | CR 221 Curios |

KC PRODUCTS: Corrugated Cardboard | Art Foam | Layered Rose Decorative Die |
Lots of fussy cutting on this layout, so much fun cutting out the Paisley images from the ‘Boho Paisley’ paper. I usually do all my fussy cutting while sitting and chatting with my family and or friends or even watching some tv, always trying to multi task lol. I used a lot of door images from the ‘Doorway’ paper to layer behind my photo and create a photo mat background, tucking some of them in among the layers of papers. All the fussy cut images were layered around my photo and design adhered with foam dots to create many layers and dimension. The flowers were cut from some blossom art foam with the layered rose die and arranged on top all the fussy cut images. A bit of corrugated cardboard and cheese clots was added behind my photo to create a bit more texture.
You will be able to find fully instructions for this layout here.
That is it for me today, happy crafting.
Until next time…
