Grandma's Attic

Hi stampers!  Well, you just may be seeing a LOT of the new attic boutique DSP from the occasions mini....WHY you ask?  Well, because I accidentally bought two packs on my big SAB order.  Ugh!  I do that way too often.  And I thought I double checked it too....oh well.  Good thing it's pretty!  Just look:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Apothecary art
Paper:  Watercolor, poppy parade, soft suede, daffodil delight, attic boutique DSP
Ink:  staz-on, pear pizzazz, poppy parade, daffodil delight
Accessories:  Labels collection framelits, ribbon lace border punch, large pearls, pool party ruffled ribbons, dazzling details

This one is pretty straight forward. The one detail you probably can't see well is that I dotted each of the flowers with dazzling diamonds in the center.  I wasn't crazy about it but liked it better after I did the dazzling diamonds, added some pearls and some ribbon.  That kept it out of the reject pile:-)  It's kind of loud and bright but this one is growing on me!  And now for a funny story....

I can't see the name of this DSP without thinking of my granny.  She used to tell me the story of how once when she was a bad girl (she sassed her mom....we seem to have that in common, lol) her mom locked her in the attic!  I guess it was really dark and scary...I imagine it would be....the attic in HER house was creepy and I only was in there during the day and with people, ha!  And it had a teeeny tiny door...always thought that was odd.  Anyway, whatever it was that got her in trouble she said she made sure to never do again:-)  It's probably not all that funny to you all but it makes me giggle just thinking of her telling the story, she'd always laugh about it.  And I'm sure glad WE didn't have an attic growing up because I'm sure I deserved to be locked in it now and again, lol!

Happy stamping!


  1. Mindy, this color combo is absolutely gorgeous! Good thing you ordered two packs of that paper...because I can't wait to see what else you create with it! I had to chuckle at your story. My grandma had a similar story she shared with the grandkids to scare us in to being well-behaved. She had an attic and none of us wanted to end up there. Eeek! :)

  2. Such a beautiful card!! I love the colors and the paper. I can't wait to use mine...but I just keep looking at it! lol Thanks for the inspiration


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
