Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop

Posted on | Thursday, March 15, 2012 | 60 Comments

Welcome to the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop!  We have much inspiration to share with you today!  Oh and of course... some fabulous prizes!
Simply Renee manufactures quality products that help you customize your organizational needs.  You may be familiar with their Clip it Up products.  You can view Simply Renee’s complete product line on their website.  They are having an amazing sale right now!  
For this blog hop, Simply Renee has teamed up with The Dusty Attic, an Australian owned and operated laser cutting business that designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments.  You can view some of these wonderful products as well as beautiful projects by fellow crafters on the Dusty Attic Ning site.  As you hop along with us today, you will see inspirational projects made by some of the talented Dusty Girls!  Here is the project I created for you using Dusty Attic chipboard embellishments.
Here below is the project that we were asked to create for the "Simply Renee" featured Manufacturer.  Simply Renee make those absolutely fantastic one or two tiered clip it up storage solutions (pictured below).  I keep mine empty but when I am working on something I will use it to organise the products I will be chosing from for that particular assignment.  Our delightful little American princess, not to mention that she is extremely talented, Natasha Narango-Aguire once wrote that her children loved to clip everything back up for her when she was done working, and that alone sold me ;)  And you know what, they really do ;) ;)

I have created a double door 12 x 12 inch frame, using the 8 x 8 inch box frame for the inside.  It represents the view from my home studio, which is the front garden.

Then on the outside French Doors I have placed photos of my work spaces etc.

I have used the newly released Door Handle Plates DA#0681 and the Fancy Letterbox #2 DA#0608 which are my favorites for the moment, amongst the following list of gorgeous Dusty Attic products:-

Corner Scrolls (large and small) DA#
Ornate Gates (medium) DA#0188
ATC Frame - chipboard (altered) DA#0663
Shadow Box Insert 8 x 8 DA#0512
Birdbath  2pk(small and large)  DA#0395

The Dusty Attic have some special storage products of their very own, being the above photographed mini Spritz Bottles DA#0610.  They are such a cute size and just perfect for covering one larger piece of chipboard.  I have squeezed some paint in firstly then topped up with water.

I would suggest that you give them a wash with detergent once empty and spray the nozzles clear with same.
What prizes are we giving away today?
Simply Renee is giving away a Clip it Up Base Unit, an Upper Tier and Zip Bags!
(Product Not Included)
The Dusty Attic is also giving away a prize pack filled with gorgeous chipboard elements and a few surprise goodies!  
So what do you need to do for a chance to win?

A winner will be chosen on March 22, 2012 and will be announced on both the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic blogs.

They are giving away one of these...
 (Product not included.  All-In-One accessories awarded may differ from those shown.)

About Me - Concise Biography

My photo
My work history is varied and diverse. From the high profile studios of NWS Channel 9, to the exciting aviation industry, I have a resume' with an extensive list of skills and experience. I reside in sunny Australia. The main purpose of this blog was that it was started out of necessity but has grown into something I enjoy. “To Do What You Love, and Feel That It Matters, What Could Be More Fun?”. I believe this particular industry promotes self esteem in many, whilst being part of a Design Team helps businesses and friends but most of all I love all the fantastic messages that one can give to another through this avenue. It assists me in my endeavour to leave the world a better place… (and as Barbie would say at the beauty pageant "and I wish for world peace";) Hoping that you find some inspiration from my work!
