Dusty Attic February Mood board

What a gorgeous pallet combination of colors and words that  make this months mood board challenge at   Dusty Attic
 I just love the warmth that comes from this pallet.

I have been wanting to use the corrugate card so I decided to use it and paint it white, I have seen this card stock used in so many male grungy creations and wanted to use it with the added soft femine touch, I love the result. 

  The prize of a $100 Dusty Attic chipboard pack is an awesome prize and makes it well worth playing along. Pop over to the blog and have a go.
I have listed the products I have used below for your convenience :

Monarch Butterflies
Live Beautifully word pack
Ornate Corners #13
Mini Birdcage #2

Thanks for looking and I really hope to see you playing along with the challenges, they are so easy and very relaxed.

My Creative space makeover

My hubby has just finished giving my scrap room a make over for me, although I did help a bit he worked hard to create this space for me, all the furniture pieces where pine and we painted them

I was given this next cupboard from a gorgeous friend of mine and knew the minute I was given it what I would do with it, A coat of white paint, wallpaper the drawer fronts and then add crystal door knobs,  I was so happy with my end result.

I am loving my new space and feeling very inspired to get creative, so heres hoping to a very creative 2015 for me :) Thanks for stopping xxx

My layout is very simple but I think the amazing depth in the colors of this Mood board where strong enough to compensate the simplicity of the layout.

I have listed for you the Dusty Attic products I have used to create this layout :

Mini Birds On A wire
Mini Bird Cage #2
Word Tags #1
Swirly Vine #4 Small

A Dusty gift for a special lady

I have been wanting to create a layout for my Mother in law, who is my biggest fan, she loves my creations and is always so full of praise and encouragement for me, I really appreciate her support and hope she liked her gift. I have helped her along and she is now the creator of some amazing cards and of course she just loves to overload them with her favorite Dusty Attic chipboard.

I used a fair bit of chipboard on this one as there were just so many pieces that suited the layout.

I have listed the Dusty Attic pieces I have used below :

Birdcage #6
Mini Birdcage #2
Mini ABC #2
Mini Number set
Mini Words #1
Leafy Scroll
Clock Faces and Hands ( I only used the hands)
Flutterbies #3

     I scrapped this layout last week as I was really wanting to use this photo of my Grand Daughter Shontay, even though you cant see her face, we had a great time with the camera this particular day, she grabbed this hat of mine and was dancing around on the grass having such a magical time.  Of course I was off like a rocket to grab the camera.

I love the birds on the wire Chipboard and just felt it would suit the look and feel of this layout added with some other whimsical pieces and a title it came together really well.

I painted all my chipboard pieces white, lightly sanded them to give them the shabby look and painted the birds using liquid pearls, they are light but added just a bit of color.

Dusty Attic pieces used are :

Birds on a wire : DA0708 
Precious :  DA0035

Cigar Box

I made this Cigar box quite awhile ago but due to magazine publication I couldn't share it with you, however it was in the magazine last month so I thought I might share with you now as I really loved this little box. I actually put a bottle of perfume in it and gave it to my Mother in law, she is my greatest supporter and its always great to share my creations with her as I just know she will cherish them forever.

I painted the box white and decorated it with some gorgeous Prima papers, then added Some Dusty Attic chipboard. I painted my nest white to suit my shabby theme and placed a bird in the nest. I also added a floral cluster, some bling and a handle to the top as well.

Dusty Attic Products used

Birds on a branch #3
Mini Butterflies #2
Teeny Tiny ABC Set
