Hope - Dusty Attic & More Than Words

Well, I haven't been crafting much lately but with a rainy weekend... I had the itch to create. I went looking for some inspiration and found a stunning The Dusty Attic Mood board and a very fitting theme for Covid from the More Than Words Challenge - both for June.

Here are the images of the mood color board and the inspirational theme of windows/door (and the word hello to be portrayed). I chose to go more heavily on the middle softer colors of the Dusty Attic mood board. I also chose the window theme and named the layout hope... representing all the people that have only been able see and wave hello to their loved ones through a window during this Covid pandemic. My hope is that that they will soon be able to say hello in person with open arms for much needed hugs (especially the elderly).

Here is a close-up of the embellishments to compliment the pretty Blue Fern "bird waltz" papers: Dusty Attic small scrolls and a mini word chipboard, Prima resin and flowers/butterfly, Green Tara "bling" and dollar store doilies. The little girl peeking out the window is an image from Pion Design and I used Helmar adhesives on everything. This is kinda a tribute to most of the fantastic manufacturer design teams I have served on at one point in the last two decades!

Thanks for taking a peek at my "hope" project today. Stay safe and hopeful everyone!

Sparkle All the Way - Blue Fern

I couldn't resist making one more layout with the gorgeous Christmas Cheer collection before breaking out the Valentine's projects. The papers are just too fun to work with!

I embellished with beautiful Blue Fern white blooms, Sparkle collection chipboard (title and snowflakes), and even tucked some flower charms from the Radiance collection for a chilly feel.

I painted all of the chipboard white and then applied glaze and quickly sprinkled a bit of diamond dust, to add sparkle.

Thanks for visiting the blog today to check out my project!

Holly Jolly Layout - Blue Fern

Before packing up the holiday crafting, I am sharing a layout created with the beautiful Blue Fern Christmas Cheer collection. I love the timeless look of these papers!

I used the Holly Days Flourish and Fa La La Border chipboard pieces, along pretty white blooms, to frame a vintage stock photo.

I kept the design and inking of the chipboard simple to let the pretty paper design shine. Everything except for a paper doily is gorgeous Blue Fern product.

I hope you enjoyed my project today!
