Love This! First Layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

"For my give away press here"!

Goodmorning everyone. 
I am so excited to show you my first layout that I made for this wonderful design team.
Did you see this months gorgeous mood board? My layout was inspired by the colors in that very same board. I also really like the phrase that was used in it so I incorporated that in my layout as well. For my layout I used all Maja Design papers and Petaloo flowers but also some of the amazing acrylic paints that Dusty Attic offers...I am a hugh addict on the rust paste's by Finnabair so I used them on all my chipboard pieces on this layout. 

Love This: 
  To compliment the chipboard pieces I used here, I added some of the newer mechanicals metal embellishments mostly the hearts. The picture I used is on made back in 2010 during our vacation in Spain made by our son Kevin. Here I'll show you the mood board isn't it pretty.

Also I used some of the amazing stencils Dusty Attic has on this layout I used the Mini Heart Stencil and the Creative Script with the paste. I still feel like I am in seventh heaven being on this team. This is such a amazing mood board to be inspired by hopefully you are going to enter the challenge too.

I always print out my text on my computer on a piece of normal paper and later on I print it on the patterned piece of paper and then you can layer it on another paper like what I did here. Don't you just love the new tabs?

The Dusty Attic products used:
Mini Tabs #2 - DA1463
Mini Words #1 - DA0386
Creative Script Stencil - DA1494
Mini Heart Stencil - DA1472

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
 I want to wish you a wonderful & sunny weekend lots of love.....

Just Because Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

"For my give away press here"!

Goodmorning everyone, 
Do you ever think "what can do with my leftover scraps?" Well I do! Normally I always give my leftover scraps to my neighbor who always makes the most lovely cards with them. But since I am making more cards at the moment I kept some of the scraps this time and made this card. The card is made with two Maja Design collections called "Life in the Country" and the newest collection "Summertime" which is a real must have collection.

Just Because: 
I placed all the layers {all ripped pieces of leftovers} on top of each other and didn't stick it all together just jet then I cut out some cute little doilies and tucked them underneath the pieces to glue it all together afterwards. The flowers are all made with the newer collections as the ripped parts are the older collection don't they just look amazing together? 

I think this is the first time that I used just plain {white} card stock on my work! The doilies are cute out of it to make my card a little more "fresh"that was the intention. I just love making flowers centers out of metal or diamond gems because they give just enough of a sparkle not to much which I don't like.
