New Products - Die Cuts from The Dusty Attic

Not long before SENZ, I signed with a new supplier who design and create a range of absolutely amazing laser die-cut chipboard embellishments and projects. I ordered some stock and it arrived the day before I was due to set up everything at SENZ so I didn't get a chance to have a play and experiment with the new products. I didn't even get a chance to take photos as it was straight out of the courier box onto the display wall with barely a moment to spare.

I think these products are pretty amazing and so do a lot of other people around the world - you just need to read some of the rave reviews and look at some of the amazing creations using these products. So it wasn't really a surprise when I sold out of quite a few products over the weekend of SENZ. I just didn't expect them to go SO FAST - some items sold out the FIRST DAY!

After recovering and finally unpacking (interrupted by a family funeral and the flu), I placed another order to restock as well as get some new products which took my fancy and these all arrived this week. This time I have taken photos (so I can add the new products to the website) but I'm going to share them with you here first.

I've grouped them together, just to make it a little easier, but please bear in mind that the sizing in these photos is in reality very different. I've fitted the photos into a block and re-sized them all to fit inside these blocks, so you will need to check out the website for actual dimensions.

This is only a mere hint of the range that is available at The Dusty Attic. I will be placing regular orders with them, so if you spot something on their website that takes your fancy, let me know and I can order it. Remember our policy all pre-paid orders receive a discount off the listed website price.

I will come back and edit this post with links to all the products in my online shop but I couldn't wait I just had to share these with all my scrapping friends and family.

Fingers and toes crossed that I get a chance to experiment over the weekend, so I can post what the finished product looks like... watch this space!

Mixed Media Altered Tin

This was the Mixed Media Altered Tin I made for a swap on the Crafting Passionz Forum. The theme was "Underwater World" so I created a "Mini Mermaid Makeup" Kit.
The tin was a "Wild Bean Cafe" mint tin from BP.

Inside the tin - showing the mirror and the makeup and hair accessories inside the decorated tin.
2 x blushers with swivel lids; 3 x eye shadow palettes, lipstick, 3 x hair clips and makeup brushes.
