Howdy Peeps!!

Today I have a page to share created using 2 fantastic challenges, the first is the Dusty Attic Mood Board challenge and the second is the gorgeous sketch from The Scrapbook Store.

Both are AMAZING Challenges, with the total amazeballs prizes of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher or a $50 Shop Voucher from The Scrapbook Store for the winners of which ever challenge you choose to do!!

To enter simply use the Dusty Attic Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like.
The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation.
Once completed simply do your blog post and add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic BLOG.

To enter The Scrapbook Store sketch challenge simply create a page using the above sketch as inspiration and upload it to the correct folder in the GALLERY by midnight on the last day of February to be eligible for the prize.

So once I had combined both of these challenges into the one page this is how I interpreted them.


So from the Dusty Attic Mood Board I was inspired by the rich colours and the words Vibrant & Passion, while with the Scrapbook Store sketch I chose minimalize all aspects of the sketch and then added extras to make it my own. I am liking using flatter flowers on my pages lately so I pulled apart the roses and used only the bottom layer.

I double layered the ATC frames to focus the page on my photo. I simply love layering Dusty Attic chipboard and found it a must for the stars. I also created my own little moon from some of the chippy offcuts. My favourite chippys at the moment would be the mini seagulls, I love that I can give my pages a little sprinkling of them to fill little spaces on my page.

Hi Peeps!!

Just dropping in today to share my final page using Blue Fern Studios Sanctuary Collection. It is a lovely collection, one which is a must for any scrappers stash.


This is a photo of my son when he was 4 years old..he is totally adorable and I am slightly bias. For this page I got quiet scissor happy and did a lot of fussy cutting.

I layered my fussy cut pieces and added a few mini rose petals to compliment the page. I added some contrasting thread to frame my photo and give extra texture.

I covered and added some Blue Fern Studios Techno Rings for added interest and to help make it a little more boyish.

Hi all!!

Back again sharing another page using some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard. Most of my pages of late have had a brown toning to them and that is because I am making a wedding album as a gift and am trying to keeping my pages quiet neutral with splashes of colour, so once again this is brown, but has splashes of red, orange, yellow and gold.


For this page I have used the 2 smaller lighthouses from Lighthouse #2 as the main feature element to the page and on top I have placed a single cluster of flowers. I have then added the larger Lighthouse from the set to background sideways and have the top just peeping out the side. I wanted to try and use them for something other then a beachy type page.

I made the already small Old Wooden Fence even smaller by cutting the palings in half and then added added a string of  Mini Birds On A Wire to the top...they are super cute!

I love adding lots of texture to my pages so I added texture paste to most of the chippy pieces, I added lots of texture to the background and for added interest I added lots of contrasting assorted thread to help frame my photo. I have used the larger chipboard string frame but cut just one side and pulled it around to make the string frame smaller to suit the size I required.

I created quiet a washed background using multiple colours. I have used Dusty Colours Bisque, Gingernut, Sunshine, Sunburst Orange & Vintage Gold. I than added a sprinkling of bling and mini seagulls to finish the page.
