June Inspiration With Debbie, Featuring Attic Charm

Hi everyone!  Debbie here with you today sharing three layouts created with the new Attic Charm paper collection, chipboard, and flowers.  I really enjoyed working with Attic Charm papers, beautiful colors and details.  My first inclination was to use vintage photos on my layouts, but I decided to show how versatile the collection is by using photos of the past and present.

 My first layout features the Generation paper and a vintage photo that belonged to  my grandmother.  Not sure who the people are in the picture, but I love it, as they look so happy.  I couldn't help but wonder what the occasion was.   I added some texture to the background paper with some masking, misting with the Imagine Ink Sky Mist and some random stamping with the Romantic Accents stamp.  I added additional texture with torn pieces of paper doilies, some of which I misted with the Sky Mist, gold microbeads and some 14 Karat embossing power.  The layers under the photo are from Calling Cards. 

I used two pieces of chipboard here, Treasured Floral Frame and Dangle Bird Ornament which I cut  apart. Both were embossed with a mixture of the Imagine Ink Snow, Mushroom and Breeze Embossing Powers, and  some Blue Ice Glitter. I also used the 14 Karat embossing power on the green leaves.  Love the shimmery look!

Lots of Blue Fern Flowers . . . Attic Charm Daisies, Attic Charm Glitter Roses, Courtship Blooms and Tranquil Lilies!  The small green Courtship Bloom I embossed with 14 Karat embossing powder.

My title is a new chipboard piece from the Attic Charm collection.  I embossed with a mixture of  Snow, Mushroom, 14 Karat and Breeze Embossing Powers along with a sprinkling of Blue Ice Glitter.  Love the aged look of it.

My next layout features the Sachet (side B)paper.    I added some random stamping with the Serendipity Medley and Romantic Textures stamps, along with some masking and paint splatters and inking on the background.   Layers  underneath the photo are from the Mercantile, Spring Posy and Calling Cards papers.

 The Floral Spray chipboard was embossed with Petal embossing power and the Bohemian Flowers with a mixture of Petal and Melon embossing powders.

I used the Attic Charm Daisies along with a green Tranquil Bloom and added in a few small Bohemian Flower chipboard pieces.  Tucked beneath the flowers I used the Chelsea Vine Chipboard embossed with Sage and Petal.

The title was embossed with a mixture of Nutmeg, Petal and  Mystic Plum embossing powders.

My final layout was created for the June Sketch Challenge.  
I used the Curio paper for the background and added some random masking, inking, paint splatters and stamping with the Bourbon Street and Romantic Accent stamps.   I used the  Calling Cards, Attic Key and Haberdashery papers for layers under my photo.  The photo is my dear friend's sweet daughter.  I edited it to give it a Vintage look.  Clusters of flowers include the new Attic Charm Daisies and Glitter Roses, along with some leaves embossed with 14 Karat Embossing powder.  I added two metal butterflies to each side of my photo embossed with Oatmeal, Breeze and Cotton Candy embossing powders.

I placed a portion of the Iron Signage chipboard underneath my photo which I embossed with a mixture of Mushroom, Oatmeal and Breeze Embossing powders.  To the left you can see a heart and key which I embossed with Oatmeal and Cotton Candy embossing powers.  Tucked beneath the Attic Charm Daisy is the Crackle Bits chipboard, embossed with Mushroom, Oatmeal, Breeze and Cotton Candy embossing power and beneath the Glitter Rose is a Blooming Foliage chipboard piece embossed with Verdant embossing powder. Torn pieces of lace were tucked in various places to give some added texture.

Here I've used the Leafy Rings chipboard embossed with the same mixture of embossing powers as the Crackle Bits.  I added some pink and blue micobeads on the chipboard as well as on the background paper.
