Here is a tag inspired by this month's Mini word!


Here is the February Mini Challenge board:

and to see gorgeous inspiration from the More Than Words DT.
Remember that in order to participate, you have to share your project
on the More Than Words FB page right HERE by the end of the month.

Of course the word LUCK made me think of St Patrick's Day
so I added a clover-like leaf and lots of green on my tag.


The word LUCKY was a sticker I've had in my stash for a long time.


I like how the little red heart pops out.


Thank you for dropping by!

Hope you will play along with us at More Than Words!

WITH ALL MY HEART layout
(Dusty Attic DT)


Hi everyone!
As Valentine's Day is soon approaching, 
I thought that I would create for you a valentine-inspired layout 
with lots of 'lovey dovey' chippies from The Dusty Attic.


For the title of my page, I chose the impact title 'With All My Heart'
which I treated with dark teal embossing powder and then dabbed 
with Dusty in Colour Oceania and Capri.


The focal chipboard piece on my layout is this gorgeous Entangled Heart
that I have been saving for a while to use on the perfect project.
I absolutely adore all the engraved designs which when treating with
embossing powders really show up so very nicely.


I layered my composition with a couple pieces of the Heart Attack Border #1, 
the beautiful Creative Script as well as a few Flutterbies #3 and Heart Arrows #2.


We took this selfie a couple years back while waiting for a concert to start.
I absolutely love how happy we look... and are! :)


Now, let's take a look at all the Dusty Attic products used:

ALWAYS & FOREVER Layout
(More Than Words DT - February Main Challenge)


I am so happy to be finally sharing with you my layout
for the More Than Words February main challenge reveal.

I absolutely love how it turned out!


Here is the February challenge board from More Than Words.

Word Inspiration - ALWAYS
Creative Challenge - QUOTE

You can find all you need to know about this challenge and the fabulous prizes
up for grabs as well as inspiration from the very talented MTW DT right HERE.

This month's word inspired me to create a layout of my boyfriend and I.
Love is by far my favorite scrapbooking theme and I hope to ALWAYS
have happy pictures of us like this to create with.


For the creative challenge I used a QUOTE from one of my favorite
books by Khalil Gibran, The Prophet. These beautiful words 
are definitely what Yves and I strive for in our relationship.


I started my layout with a base of Scrapberry's patterned paper.
I thought it was just the perfect amount of pretty for this page.


I looked through my stash and took out all the accents that would match,
going a bit crazy with some orange, peach and yellow.


I added some paint splatters here and there to bring the different colours together.


Will you play along with us this month?  I can't wait to see!!

SWEETNESS Layout
(Dusty Attic DT - January Mood Board & Sketch 4)


It's time for me to share with you
my 2nd DT project for The Dusty Attic!


I was inspired by this truly gorgeous mood board from The Dusty Attic:


I also based my layout design on this beautiful sketch designed 
by the fabulous Jen Hedger, also owner of Dusty Attic.
Jen has created a sketch for each week of the year!


As you can see, I was mostly inspired by the colour palette in the mood board.

I chose the word Sweetness from the Word Pack #20 which is so fitting
for this layout of my darling furbaby whose name is Sugar.


I thought it would be really cute to add a couple Skeleton Fish Bones, mini and regular size.
I also lined up some pieces of the Heart Attack Border #1 covered with embossing powder.


On the background, you can see some stenciling using the Squared stencil 
which I used with acrylic paint over some blue misting.


I really love using arrows on my pages and the new Tribal Arrows in the Dusty Attic collection are absolutely fabulous. I covered this one from the Set #2 as well as the Heart Arrows #2 with light aqua embossing powder. I did the same to the Fans #2 which I used as flowers. I really love them!


Finally, I painted over the Wordplay #4 and the Page Pebbles #3 with beige acrylic paint and then filled in the letters with a fine tip black marker. And in case you were wondering, the cute little cat badges are from Cuts2luv.


Don't you agree that Sugar is sweetness galore?!

Now, let's take a look at the Dusty Attic products used.
