Simply Renee and Dusty Attic - Blog Hop

Welcome to the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop!  We have much inspiration to share with you today!  Oh and of course... some fabulous prizes!

Simply Renee manufactures quality products that help you customize your organizational needs.  You may be familiar with their Clip it Up products.  You can view Simply Renee’s complete product line on their website.  They are having an amazing sale right now!  

For this blog hop, Simply Renee has teamed up with The Dusty Attic, an Australian owned and operated laser cutting business that designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments.  You can view some of these wonderful products as well as beautiful projects by fellow crafters on the Dusty Attic Ning site.  As you hop along with us today, you will see inspirational projects made by some of the talented Dusty Girls!  Here is the project I created for you using Dusty Attic chipboard embellishments.

This is my space... snippets of where I create.  It's a work in progress, I am continually adding and changing, moving to different rooms and back again, but I think I have it all just about perfect now {well it will be once my hubby installs my wall mounted Clip It Up's}!

And some closeups of Dusty goodies!

The new Scroll #8 and a snippet of one of the Nameplate #5.

The Scroll #8 was painted with white paint and then inked with Chiffon and Peridot Mix'd Media Ink, sprayed with Smooch Spritz and then Embossed.

The Nameplate was painted white and then coated with Fairy Dusty Glitter using some Allison Ellis Hot Set Glue as the adhesive.

The newest products to Dusty Attic... Dusty in Bloom!  Yep... Dusty are stocking their very own flowers, stunning aren't they!  They'll be available for order for retailers very soon.

And some more snippets:

I was inspired to cut up and tuck in the nameplates by one of Belinda Spencer's layouts... such a cute idea!!
