A Gift for a Lovely Lady {Dusty Attic & 49 & Market}

Hi all! Today I have a page I made as a gift for my beautiful friend Jennifer Hedger, owner of Dusty Attic Chipboard.  I've been on her design team for many many years now and have enjoyed being on this team so much.  This is a no stress, wonderful design team, an absolute pleasure to be on.  And this is due in no small part because of this lovely lady at the helm of the company.  She is so genuine and sweet.  It was my pleasure to make this page as a special gift to her.

I used some beautiful papers from 49 & Market....remember the flower fairy papers I used for that layout I did of my daughter when she was a baby?  Well Janene Meyerowitz has designed another lovely collection called Heirloom Botanicals (just LOVE the little mushroom cut out sheet she created) ....So for this page I used some of the Heirloom Botanical papers as well as a sheet of paper from Vintage Artistry (also from 49 & Market).  The blossoms and Prills are all from 49 & Market as well.  And of course all the chipboard is Dusty Attic Designs.

For the mushroom design, I cut out the image from the 6x6 cut out sheet, then I cut out the tops of the mushrooms from another image and attached with foam pop dots to give a 3D effect to my embellishments.

Love this title, cuz it's so true!  I just tinted the DA chipboard piece with green ink and added some Gloss to the word 'life' and 'friends'. The quote is one of my new stamp designs (also available at The Scrapbook Diaries or 49 & Market)

I did a bit of stamping with my new Hibiscus Stamp from The Scrapbook Diaries I used one of the quotes as a central quote and used the other scripted quote as a background design.  I used the floral design as a background image behind the photo area.

As I mentioned all the chipboard is Dusty Attic, for this page I used
~ Small Trellis
~ Mini Branches
~ View Finders
~ Lace Border #4
~ Life is Better with Friends Title chippie

You can order Dusty Attic chipboard directly from the Dusty Attic Website in Australia or there are many retailers in North America that now carry Dusty Attic product, The Scrapbook Diaries has an extensive list of Dusty Attic product.

All the girls on the design team got together and made an album (co-ordinated by the sweet Jen Burns) as a gift from the design team, each page in our own style. Hope she loves it! xo

Gabi, I love your work and you have been my favorite designer since I first saw your work and I make sure that I pin your layouts for future referance.This layout is absolutely stunning, but then again so is all your art.
Seeing something so beautiful inspires me to take some time to create something beautiful.

Love your layout! You are right, the little mushrooms are adorable! I usually gravitate to girly colors, but these colors are striking! I was very excited to get your email. I have missed seeing your beautiful videos on You tube.

Gabrielle your page is gorgeous. You have inspired my dusty attic collection of chippies, just need to find time to scrap with them!! But Jennifer should know that you inspired many of us, long ago, to fall in love with dusty attic ( during the time when Natasha was one of the only ones who seemed to have a great selection here in the US!!!
Thanks for posting!

What a lovely gift. I am sure she will be thrilled. The sentiment is perfect. I have been given one of your Dusty Attic kits by a crafty friend here in the UK. I was thrilled to receive it and am making the most of putting it together, enjoying every step.
