July is our Birthday month and we will be celebrating 
That’s right ten years of business in the Scrapbooking community. We have so many loyal and wonderful customers who are really amazing and we count them as our friends. Not to mention our past and present out of this world Design Teams.
These ladies and gent are our backbone to bringing you their precious work twice each month to show us how they use the magical designs that Jen “the Boss” Hedger designs. 
I know I am not alone in saying that one of the reasons Jennifer has been in business for so long is that she is an amazing, giving, funny, wonderful human, who will bend over backwards (sometimes to her own sleep) to help people get their orders, kits, designs to them as fast as humanly possible. 
Also just to finish off I think people assume there is a massive warehouse somewhere in Perth full of machines and people and stock and packers and office staff, this could not be further from the truth, although I’m sure she would love it to be like this but alas it is a home business that cuts everything in house (instead of sending to mass produced China) that is ever so grateful to be amongst some inspirational other scrapbooking companies that you, our customers are keeping our hobby and memory keeping alive. 
1) a NEW RELEASE that is nearly ready to be revealed and then 
2) a GIVE – A – WAY

Hello Dusty fans and welcome back. 

Can you believe we are already into July?  Seriously the year is just flying by!
Winter and the perfect time to be indoors scrapping up a storm!

So – with a new month means a new mood board.

Here is July

Another beautiful one by the boss lady!

I love the colours in this.  Again another one that challenged me to step outside of my “safe zone”

Here is what I created.

I started with some stamping on the background and then built my paper layers.  I added some gesso to the Cosmic Swirl chipboard and laid my photo on top.

I then tucked under some of the pretty papers that I fussy cut out.

Once my flowers were on I added some more chipboard.  I tucked under the Doily No. 5 which I covered with some dark green ink.  I snipped it in half so I could add some to the left hand side cluster as well was the right hand side cluster.

On the right hand side cluster I tucked in the Holly Flourish no. 2 chipboard with I covered in green glitter and some red paint for the berries, along with the Foliage no. 2.

On both sides I added some Foliage no. 11 and finished off my page with the simple Laugh title which I mixed two embossing powder together.  I added some gold and green embossing powder.

To finish off  I added some wordpl@y for a pop of black.
