Jennifer Hedger, Owner, Designer - Dusty Attic, WA

"Hi, I’m Jennifer, the Owner, Creative Director and Designer of The Dusty Attic, a laser cut chipboard company.
I established Dusty Attic in 2009 after discovering a love of designing new products and a willingness to share them initially wth family and friends. This later grew to a much larger audience and I now ship my products to over 20 different countries.

I feel very blessed to have an amazing Design Team who share my love of chipboard and regularly inspire me with their amazing and unique pieces of artwork.
My love of paper crafts started long before my company and I have been involved in the scrapbooking and paper craft industry for over 20 years. I have been very lucky to able to teach scrapbooking and off the page projects in many parts of our beautiful country and also have been a part of some amazing retreats overseas.

I am so very thankful for all the opportunities that this industry has provided me but more importantly I value all the wonderful friendships I have made along the way.

Personally, I am married to a very supportive husband and have two teenage children who continue to amaze me with their individuality and love for life. I feel very blessed that I am able to join you on this cruise and share my love of scrapbooking.




You will need to bring along a normal basic scrapbooking tool kit.  Similar to what you would bring to any retreat.

Items to definitely include:

  • craft matt – needs only to be a small A4 mat but something to use with your craft knife.
  • messy mat - blending mate
  • blending tool and replacement foams
  • craft knife
  • small scissors (blades to be no longer than 4″)
  • edge distressor
  • adhesives….lots of them  (include tape runners/adhesive tape and glues for embellishments)  Gel medium works a treat for most embellishments.

Optional Extra’s  (not necessary but certainly helps if you have them

  • mini mister
  • apron
  • baby wipes (to clean up your area and hands) – no taps in the conference room to wash hands.

You will be given kits for each class so its not necessary to bring along other scrapbooking products unless you have something specific in mind you want to work on whilst away.

Closer to the sailing date I will give you photograph requirements which you can either bring from home or cut up white card stock to relevant sizes so you can use on layouts and replace with a real photo when you have a suitable one.


Here is a list from Jen of basic supplies you will need to bring with you for the classes. Also please allow 5kgs in your luggage for you class kits that you will be taking home. 😅
- Paper trimmer
- Craft Matt (working area)
- Messy Matt (painting area)
