Hi everyone - Marelle back with more fabulous DT inspiration.
Take a look at this gorgeous layout from the lovely Jo.
This month I was lucky enough to have a gorgeous scripty title "Believe" in my package from Molossi along with a very intricately cut flourish frame.  I have used both of these pieces on my layout for this month featuring my daughter.

The photos I pinched from my daughter's IPOD whilst doing a backup recently and she does a much better job than I do of photo editing :)  I simply painted the chipboard with white acrylic paint and added an adhesive gem to the dot on top of the "I".  The papers I have used are from Echo Park and Kaisercraft and the quote is onto a Bella transparency.  Flowers are from and Bo Bunny, the spotty paper was cut on the Pazzle into a shape and inked around the edges with black ink.  Some florist wire twirled around a pencil gives the added pieces to the floral cluster.
I have hidden journaling under the larger of the photographs with a little washi tape down the side and a metal corner to make sliding it from under the photograph easier.

I absolutely adore this title - it is a great size to make a statement but not overwhelm the layout - similiarly, the frame was small enough to highlight a wallet size photograph and still have it be the smaller of the two photographs featured - I look forward to playing with others in the Molossi range.
This is beautiful Jo!
As more gorgeous DT creations come to hand I will keep you updated

Hi everyone, I am back with an amazing layout by the talented Leanne Nankervis!  I have known Leanne through scrapbooking (in real life) now for some years - her style is amazing - especially her fussy cutting, vintage layouts - I am in awe of these!
This is what she had to say about this gorgeous layout featuring Molossi products:

I created this layout using the awesome Molossi large doily chipboard frame as a feature on my page. Seeing I was using Graphic 45 Steampunk papers the Molossi cogs went perfect with this range of papers. I did lots of layering and fussy cutting in this layout and embellished it with metal hardware, chipboard and flowers.
The Molossi Large Doily Frame  I painted in Ranger metallic copper paint dabber.
Molossi Products: - Small Roses- Large Chipboard Doily- Steampunk Cogs

More inspiration from our Fabulous DT

Just look at this gorgeous Dusty Attic altered Caddy that Narelle has altered.
This is the raw Dusty Attic caddy "the before" photo:
Take a look at the "after photo"

This is what Narelle has to say about creating this gorgeous caddy.
This month I altered the Dusty Attic Tool Caddy.  I'm going to use it to store all my adhesives as its the perfect size for my Helmar glue bottles etc, but as I was altering it I kept thinking of ideas for Christmas presents.... doing it up for a teen girl filled with hair styling products and tools, a desk caddy for a special teacher, a caddy for beside the phone to store pens and paper etc.... so many uses!

I assembled the caddy, using some Helmar tacky craft glue to ensure it all stayed together-  then painted it with several coats of paints.   I randomly swiped brown ink over it and wiped it back off to give it an aged look, and ran the brown ink around all the edges and handles.  I used a floral stamp with rust and green ink to add some colour.  I covered the two ends with floral paper, using x-press it double sided tape then dry brushed paint over the top to tone it in with the rest of the caddy and added some brown ink to the edges.

Once everything was dry I decorated the front using gorgeous Manor house flowers- Wishes "Peace"  and Wild Rose Mix which I adhered using Helmar 450 glue and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.  I also added some Dusty Attic Dusty Rose leaves.

Another share from the gorgeous Cathi!
Just take a look at this amazing layout !  I spy some Molossi chippy there (hexagon),and how about that amazing Molossi butterfly - Cathi covered it in stamping with white embossing powder and inked it - it just shows how versatile Molossi chipboard is . Heavenly..


Take a look at these gorgeous cards by Cathi using Molossi chipboard. This is how Cathi created the first card! 
"I used Molossi's Small Dress Form #1. It is so intricately cut out I couldn't cover up the chipboard in thick paint so I used gorgeous chalk ink for great coverage and color! I added a quick sentiment some coordinated cut out pieces and paper from Tilda Summer Blues and some gorgeous velvet ribbon in my stash! Simple and elegant, I just love the touch Molossi chipboard adds!
My second card also features the Tilda papers, this one reminds me of a china plate setting. I added a small key from the chipboard Door Handles and Keys set, a doily and some more ribbon and twine. Simple and elegant with a fun French greeting!
Molossi chipboard can be used in so many types of paper crafting, like my recent canvas, cards, layouts and more!

-Take a piece of scrapbook card & cut your card 12" x 6"
-Score your card width ways (top to bottom) at 2,4, 8 & 10"
-Using a craft trimmer or craft knife & ruler, cut your card length ways twice from the 2" fold to the 10 fold (it is not critical on how wide the top & bottom sections are, you can use whichever measurements you like to give different effects - I have used a 2" width top & bottom to keep it all even)
-Flip the middle section the out the opposite way to the top and bottom, fold your card up and using a bone scorer (or similar) make sure your creases are crisp then add your embellishments, don't forget to leave a space to write your message!

I am sure you will agree Heather has certainly "wowed" us once again with her attention to detail and her amazing colour combinations!
I will be back with even more DT inspiration very soon

Hi everyone, Marelle here.
 Hope you are all doing well - what fabulous crafty weather we are having in Victoria!  Winds of 142km per hour - "I don't think we are in Kansas anymore Toto"!!
 One of our amazing DT has been taking advantage of the cold wintery conditions, you will be amazed at what she has created!!
Narelle has done an amazing job of these cute Dusty Attic birdhouses.  Here is how she went about creating them.  I know once you see them you will want to start creating decorated birdhouses from Dusty Attic - we would love to see your creations!
"These Dusty Attic birdhouses were so much fun to play with and you could decorate them to suit any theme! "

For the first one I inked the pieces with brown ink, concentrating the ink on the outer edges. I covered the roof with a single piece of woodgrain paper and used a fence and bird sticker to decorate around the bottom of the house, and added some ManorHouse roses.

For the purple house I assembled the house first then painted it mauve, followed with a coat of lilac paint.  Whilst the paint was still wet I heated it with a heat gun (getting up quite close) so that the paint bubbled and gave a weathered appearance).  I die-cut scalloped shapes from woodgrain paper to create the tiled roof, before adding molossi rainbow sticky bling and Manorhouse flowers.

For the final house I wanted to create a Christmas feel (imagine how cute these would look hanging on a Christmas tree?!).  For this one I covered each of the pieces in patterened paper, cut them out with a craft knife and then glued the piece together using Helmar tacky craft glue before adding the Manorhouse"Extravagent' bling trim, Molossi Silver bling and  Manorhouse flowers."
