Hi There!

Today I would love to share with you some new releases from 49 and Market and Dusty Attic.

49 and Market released a new summer paper collection called "Sand and Sea".
This collection is fresh, breezy and so pretty. The colour combinations are fantastic
not only to treasure your summer fun by the sea but also for everyday life.

The other release from 49 and Market are these cute paper flowers. They come in 12 colours:
you really can't chose which one you want to buy so better have them all :-)
"Floral Mixology" are the flowers I am using in my layouts and I simply adore them!
Check them all -------> HERE


Another super amazing release I want to share is from Dusty Attic company!

Remember {Dusty Attic}

Hi There!

I am sharing another layout this month created for Dusty Attic company.
This time I based my layout on the colour palette from April's moodboard.
I hope this layout will inspire you so you can join us in this month's challenge.


Dusty in Colour" Hot Chocolate"

Check out my photo-story :-)

I loved the idea using Page Pebbles on the paper rosette.

It's my second time using one of the Mini Words like that - 
shaping it around a circle (in this case The Skeleton Clock Face chippy).

One of the stamps I used comes from 49 and Market company.
The stamp set is designed by talented Gabrielle Pollacco.

The perforated mesh chippy is a must! It gives an amazing texture to your project.

If you play along with us this month you have chance to win a $100
Gift Voucher to the Dusty Attic website. All you have to do is create 
a project inspired from the moodboard above and submit your project:

Dream Passionately {Dusty Attic} & {49 and Market}

Hi There!

Today I want to share with you a layout that I created with yummy Dusty Attic 
products mixed with 49 and Market goodies. I was inspired to create a "blueish" 
kind of layout because of the photos of my daughter. I also loved creating this layout 
because I used one of my latest clear stamps together with Dusty Attic chipboard.

Products I used:


I treated the number plate as usual with a layer of gesso. After that I distressed by 
using ink pads (colours matching the bird cage pattern).Then I used two eyelets - 
I didn't use eyelets for ages so I was happy to grab my Crop-a-Dile and make it useful :-).
The word "Cherish" is part of my latest stamp set and is perfect match/size for 
the number plate chippie. I love how this embellishment turned out!

In case you are interested here are my stamps available at 49 and Market:

The "Wildflower" chipboard is amazing! I honesty was keeping that particular package 
for a "special occasion" layout. However, I couldn't keep it anymore and I had to use it.
I treated with gesso and white paint. Once all was dry I used Pearl drops (yellow and blue) 
to fill in the flourish. I could paint them the colours I needed but then I wouldn't achieve 
the 3D effect. 

For the mini bird cage I used Dusty in Colour "Sunshine" .
As for the "Dream Passionately" word phrase I used Dusty in Colour:
"Denim" and "Faded Denim". The word "dream" was distressed with "Sunshine" colour.

The word "laugh" was painted (after gesso treatment) with "Faded Denim"
paint and then distressed with "Sunshine" one. The same goes for the 
Elegant Swirls.

And here are two more close-up photos for you.



Thank you so much for visiting today!

have a creative day!
