Websters Pages & Dusty Attic!

Although I usually tend to do 12x12 layouts, I've been in a bit of an altering mood lately.  I found these cute tissue box covers at my local dolar store and thought it would be fun to make some box covers for my girls rooms.  Meagan is going with a beach theme in her room so I used the Websters Pages Yacht Club collection  papers and embellishments (Sparklers) and some Dusty Attic chippies (Sea Shells and Baroque Corner flourishes and Anchor)  Here is a before shot of the tissue box....
The 12x12 patterned paper is almost a perfect fit for the 3 long sides of the box, you just need to trim one side edge, and cut out 2 smaller rectangles of paper for the two sides.  I added machine stitching to all the sides before attaching in the paper.  I attached the paper by slightly watering down some white wood glue and pasting on the sides.  I then simply decorated with the Dusty Attic Chipboard and a variety of gems and pearls and a bit of fish netting from my local Michaels store.  Here is the reverse side and a few more close-ups...


While I had out the Yacht club papers I thought I'd do a Thank-you card combining this collection with the Western Romance collection.  The frame is an ornate frame from Dusty Attic....

I've got a really fun project to share in a few days using a bunch of the newest Dusty Attic pieces along with Websters Pages goodies....so excited to share this one with you!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Gabrielle,
I've found an online shop which is advertised by your works. I think that's not right! See here: http://www.lablanche.eu/blog/2011/11/17/traumhafter-hintergrund-fur-ihre-fotos-gorgeous-background-for-your-photos/
