(Dusty Attic DT - February Mood Board)

It's time to reveal my project designed for the February Dusty Attic mood board!

This is the beautiful February mood board:

 I really loved the warm feel of this image and the colour palette.
I went in search of a photo to scrap and found a beautiful sunset shot
in my pictures taken a while back and thought it would be perfect.

The word Magnificent from the Word Pack #13 was very fitting to the concept.

I used the Decorative Frame #5 and cut it in 2 pieces to slip underneath the photo.
I painted it with a mixture of Dusty in Colour Mountain Meadow and Capri.

In this cluster, you see the pretty Bridal Veil blooms that I matched with some lacey flowers from my stash. I slipped in some Foliage #18 colored with Dusty in Colour Soot, a gorgeous Cuts2luv badge and then sprinkled lots of sequins from Dress My Craft.

Given the theme of my layout, I just add to use this piece of the Wordplay #7 set.
You can also see a nice textured design on my background created with the Sparkle stencil.

I love to use quotes on my pages and I had this one as a sticker that I felt helped express my sentiment inspired by the February board image and this stunning sunset photo.

Take a look at all The Dusty Attic products that I used on my project:

Word Pack #13 - DA1269

(More Than Words DT - February Mini Challenge)

February is almost over and so it's time for another Mini Challenge from More Than Words!

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

Here is the February Mini Challenge board:
 Click HERE to find out all you need to know about the Mini Challenge
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!

(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:

With All My Heart - DA1564
Wordplay #4 - DA1647
Entangled Heart - DA1416
Heart Attack Border #1 - DA1205
Heart Arrows #2 - DA1026
Creative Script - DA2201
Flutterbies #3 - DA0766
Dusty in Colour
Oceania - DA0912
Capri - DA0915

Make sure to share with us your Dusty Attic creations

(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!!
