Good Things

 Hi how are you? we are prepping for the new school year which I have to say that I am very disappointed about, I have enjoyed these holidays and I really dont want to start that dirty word ''routine''. 

While I have a little inner conflict I will share the last of the Uniquely Creative Something Blue Collection.

Be Kind

 Good morning how are you? Myself enjoying the last of the holidays and enjoying the cooler weather which is really helping with the summer day vibes, what did you get up to for your Australia day?

Just sharing one of the last Mintay Let Celebrate papers nothing like using the last bits of a collection. I have to say I have been not to creative lately but its not a bad thing considering my little word for the year is Being ..... which I just realized that I didnt share with you.

Doing What Makes Me Happy with Dusty Attic

 Good morning how are you? Hopefully you are feeling relaxed and energized for the New Year, myself I am hoping to kick into creative overdrive and have the mojo flow. What are you creative goals this year?

Today I am sharing a multiple photo layout, this is one of my goals this year to use more photos on single layouts, considering for the last two weeks I have been trying to stuff all the layouts completed into albums and then realizing I still dont have enough !!!!


Dusty Attic Chipboard - Brick Wall Boarder, Spring Blooms #3,Doing what makes you happy title, 49& Market Vintage Artisty Wedgewood pattern paper and rub ons, Sequins

The one thing I love to do is just spray paint all my chipboard with a chalk primer/colour in white so its ready to go and the plus side is that when you spray you dont lose the etched details in your chipboard.

The Spring Blossom #3 set has more than enough peices to add into your diecuts or fussy cut papers to add details and clusters, on of the things I love to do is sprinkle them onto the page and where they land is where they get stuck, this stops you lining them up, because your eye/brain will naturally do it even when your trying not to...... this technique also works for sequins/rhinestones etc.

 Hi, hi, how are you? I find myself shuffling paper back and forward and not feeling it..... I want to use the collection, have enough to create a few layouts but I am not really feeling it, so the one thing I decided to do was just make a few layered layouts not stress about the photos and complete them when I am in a better head space.

That should work right? Maybe I am broken?

What a Lovely Day

 Good morning how are you? Back today with another layout using some of the last of the Mintay collections, I am determined this year to halve my photo stash and paper and use it till its all gone !!!

 I have to say I didnt really have alot of this collection to start with maybe this is why I hadnt really done a lot with it but pairing it with other cardstocks and papers has allowed me to get to use all the fussy cut elements out of it.

Hi hows everyone going? I have to say I am over the heat, over the hot weather over it all, but to stay cool I have been locked up in the house with the air con and playing with some papers. Some days are harder than others sometimes I just end up shuffling things back and forward. 

Sometimes I use a whole collection and it easy as. how about you?

 Hi, hi just popping in for a quick couple of shares, nothing really spectacular today these layouts are just to clear the bits and pieces so they dont end back on the shelves to be forgotten about I am really trying to clear papers and stream line my studio.
