Moonlight Shadows Tag


Welcome everyone!


I was inspired to create a romantic tag with this awesome moorish window.

 I used only a few colours and completed this depiction of a moonlit night

 with a cutting die, a moon sticker and some dried nature materials.

Fall in coffee - Moodboard inspiration for Dusty Attic


Welcome creative friends!

Our monthly Moodboard is an absolutely wonderful inspiration, 

I'm a big fan of monochrome color themes,
 it has so much harmony and peacefulness for me.



I was inspired  to try something new again.

I wanted to bring more life into the flat picture,

 so I decided to hang a simple awning over the photo.



Used two straws, a border cutting die for front edge and matching paper.

Together with an outcast from silicone mould (Katy Sue Designs)

as a bottom border,

  a wonderful ambience in vintage style.

Forget love, fall in COFFEE ;-)

In ancient or modern times, it has always been a fine thing
 to sit down with a friend in a street café and chat about all the world and his wife.

to give the layout a suitable aroma
 I worked with fresh coffee powder and beans 😄


used Dusty Attic chipboards and stencil

Summer Dreams for Dusty Attic


Welcome creative friends!


Kerstin here, to share a new inspiration layout

with Dusty Attic chipboards.

I was inspired to create a romantic and dreamy layout in monochrome colour scheme

Love  to work with few colours, so the photo is more in focus, it radiates calmness and harmony.


I used an amazing background paper from a 13arts  collection 'Dreamland'.

Suitable to this natural theme I found at Dusty Attic

 a lot of matching chipboards like wildflowers, leaves and grasses. 

Foliage, Flowers & Branches
