I am thrilled to celebrate two big events......Scraps Of Elegance Inaugural Reveal and being selected as Guest Designer for Feb. at Dusty Attic. Two great products to pair up and showcase. Oh, you know I had me some fun!
If you have come here from Lisa Novogrodski's blog. Welcome!
You may know Scraps of Darkness already~~
she is on the edgy and daring side and is always the "pushing the envelope" kit of diversity.
Now we would like to introduce you to her new sister---
"Scraps of Elegance" is the alter ego of her sister club.
Her style is more sweet and romantic ... a true classic beauty
Today is the reveal of our very first "Scraps of Elegance" kit!
We've carefully chosen these beautiful papers from Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings, Websters Pages Western Romance and Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection. We have also added some wonderful embellishments and unique vintage items for you to create something beautiful to compliment your most treasured photos.
You can see the full list of kit ingredients on our website.
This is an image I obtained from Magical Moonlight Free Images. So cute. The Dusty Attic name plates in the upper corner along with the Leafy Stem #3, DA0580 .
This was created using the wonderful sketch from Suepup, Charlotte Jenkins. Thanks, Charlotte, for your monthly inspiration.
The Dusty Attic name plate and Leafy Stem has been rubbed with some white Tim Holtz Picket Fence distressing stain and then a little Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink.
The butterflies are punches from Martha Stewart.
Vintage Style and Elegance
This was created using an image from Magical Moonlight Free Images.
The base layer is a piece of fabric adhered to some 12x12 cardboard with spray adhesive, then inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.
I chose a wonderful new Dusty Attic water fountain piece to use as art deco. These pieces will be released soon with proper names and product numbers so you can order them.
This is Escape Kitty's cat brother, StayBehindCat as he waits by the door eagerly waiting for Escape Kitty to return home from her Australian adventure. I actually think he is interested in any souvenirs that she may bring back for him , but he denies that; some exotic catnip mouse or maybe a new scratch post.
This was created using the wonderful sketch by Michelle Grant, at Dusty Attic. She has such a talent for design - thanks Michelle. The sketch features the soon-to-be released door frame, keyholes and mail box.
Shabby Winter Forrest
This is was a photo I took with my nieces a few weeks ago. The little darlings were sleeping over at my house and agreed to play dress up with me for some photos in our freshly fallen snow. I have wonderful vintage sled that was needed to be used as well.
I do not own the Tim Holtz pine tree die so I have to improvise. When ever I need a tree, I kick myself for being cheap and not just ordering one. I am left to haul out the cardboard and start a ripping. I have created a tree tutorial just in case there are others of you out there holding off on the Timmy tree die.
Here is a sneak peak of the Dusty Attic flower vine. Very pretty used here as a snow flower, chunked up with molding paste and then painted white and sprinkled with glitter

Wedding Day Butterflies
This is a photo of my step daughter at her wedding. She was a gorgeous bride, as all are. I was taken with her backside. The elegance of her dress and the shape of the dress line was so pretty so I followed her
for quite a while to get that shot. I do fear that I was very irritating to her since I did not tell her why I was stalking her backside. But I could sense in her eyes that she really wanted to yell, "enough with my bum already!"
I picked the new more intricate Dusty Attic Dress form design to go with this layout and added my wedding veil tulle and some lace. I also took my craft knife and cut the chandelier to make it more dimensional on the page.
The butterflies were cut from the patterned paper and coated with Crackle Glossy Accents.
Here is a close up of the dress. I dotted the neckline of the dress with liquid pearls.
Thanks for looking. Thanks for sharing our big day at Scraps Of Elegance as well as my big day for Guest Designer at Dusty Attic.
