Dusty Attic & Websters Pages! A Match made in Heaven!

I just love that this week Websters Pages & Dusty Attic is doing a product collaberation in which both design teams get to work with both companies products together!   I was sent this beautiful 12x12 Display Frame a while back from Dusty Attic and finally got the chance to use it!  I decided to make a Shabby-Chic wall hanging for on of my daughters bedroom.  I used a combination of Websters Pages Western Romance, Postcards from Paris and Lifes Portrait Collections, along with a number of their beautiful trims and embellishments (DesignerThreads/Heart Doily, Silhouettes/Cameo, WP/Unity Stamp Set/Beauty).  And from Dusty Attic I used the 12x12 Display Frame and about another 10 pieces of their beautiful laser cuts including the new Cameo Sliders (behind the cameo), Corset, 2 of the new Rose Stems, a Lamp Post #4, Baroque corners, Wrought Iron Fence, and a Wrought Iron Trim Set (along the top of the design).  Here are some close-up shots of each of the sections on this home decor piece...
The Rosebud I simply painted white and used a pink and light green chalk ink on the edges to give it some subtle color. 

I just LOVE these new Dusty Attic Cameo Sliders!!  It's like they were specially made for the Websters Pages Silhouettes!  They fit perfectly! 

For the Corset chippie, I painted the whole thing with white paint, then inked it lightly with some pink chalk ink.  Then I stamped the piece with a lace stamp (I used a strip stamp from an old Prima Frame stamp set for this).  And then finally added some glitter with a bit of Stickles (Stardust).
TIP:  I wanted to keep the pinks very soft on this project so I slightly changed the look of the Websters Pages Cameo by dabbing some Colorbox White Chalk ink over the edges of the Cameo piece...
This week the design teams of both Websters Pages and Dusty Attic will be posting their projects at a special thread in their forums.  I've seen most of the projects and let me say, they are spectacular!  You can view the projects made by the Dusty Attic design team girls throughout the week at this link DUSTY ATTIC FORUM ...and you can see the projects of the girls from the Websters Pages design team girls at this link WEBSTERS PAGES FORUM.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a peek, and thanks so much for your kind comments, your feedback means a lot to me!  (Please note:  I am often asked where you all can find the Dusty Attic Products, I have listed a number of great retailers for this product that are happy to ship worldwide!  You can find them in the right hand column of my blog....I got a note from a number of them recently that they have just recieved new product and are fully stocked....but my advice is hurry, because I understand they sell out quickly!  ...Many of them  (such as http://www.staytruetogod.com/ ) will take orders too if they don't have the items you were looking for in stock!

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!

Focus on SnowFall!! Bo Bunny's New Release!! & New Dusty Attic!!

I just love the beautiful color combination in Bo Bunny's new Snowfall collection. The rich aqua/teal blues and the warm brown tones are so pretty together!  And the embellishments that compliment this collection are again, over the top beautiful! (Check out the pretty Trinkets for Snowfall!)  I had seen this collection online before I recieved my design team package but I was just blown away when I saw this gorgeous collection in real life!  Just covered in glittery goodness!  And the nice kind of glitter that doesn't come off all over everything :)

I also added a bit of the new goodies from Dusty Attic to this page!  The large corner flourish #1 DA0628 and the Lacing Tash DA0631.  I simply painted them with a chocolate brown craft paint and then added some texture with a bit of Aqua and Platinum color Stickles (glitter glue).  To see all the the awesome new releases for Dusty Attic you can find the HERE.  Here are some close-ups of this page I made of my youngest daughter.
Check out the Trinkets that go with this collection (on the lace-up piece and on the snowflakes)... 

TIP:  I added some older Prima Hydrangia's I had in my stash to this layout and used the Bo Bunny brads as centers.  I also added a pearl strand to finish the design.  A great glue for adding things like pearl strands is the Tombow Liquid Adhesive (the green & white bottle).  It has a fine tip on one end.  Just apply the glue to your project in the design you want the pearl strand to follow.  Then allow it to dry a little so it becomes tacky.  Now you can apply your pearl strand and it will stay in place as you apply it.  You can even re-adjust a little as you go.  The glue will become more permanent as you leave it to dry.

If you haven't picked up your supply of this beautiful new collection, go check it out for yourself, you will be delighted to see how even more dazzling this collection is in real life!  Thanks for having a peek!

An Art Journal! Websters Pages & Dusty Attic

I have been wanting to try making an art journal for a long time now and I finally gave it a go!  For me, Websters Pages and Dusty Attic are two companies that just go so well together!  So I used the Dusty Attic Arched Window Set DA#0569 and one of their title chippies (Art) DA0386 along with Websters Pages Western Romance Papers, WP Ribbon, WP Stamps (Beauty stamped on frame) and WP Postcards (birds).

I got my journal book at a local dollar store and other than the above items I added a bit of simple kitchen cheesecloth and some pearl strands.  I treated the DA frame with some cream color paint, brown chalk ink, some script/flourish stamping and finally coated it all with some Tim Holtz Rock Candy (crackle finish). Here are a few close-up pic's of the book.... 

Now I have somewhere to keep page ideas I come up with, little hand drawn sketches or even notes for my design team work.  My daughter saw this one and now wants me to make her one too....so you may see some more of these books pop up on my blog :)  ....Keep an eye out, hint hint, Dusty Attic and Websters Pages will be teaming up and sharing projects from their DT's in a few weeks time!
