For the love of organization!



Hello! I am Nina and for anyone lucky enough to live near enough to visit the Sugar and Spice shop you will probably already know me. For those who don't I am a eclectic bug who loves random things in life. I have been paper crafting for 9 years now and have an ever changing style. My first project I want to share with you is an extension of my love of organization, can anything be better then stash organization?!
So does your ribbon box look like this?

Such hard work when you are starting a project and you cant even see your supplies. I thought I would put to use all the random jars I had been collecting for years and sort my ribbon into colours. This way when I know I need say, a black ribbon, I can grab my jar and have a good look. Once I was organized I couldn't resist making some cute labels with my Alphabet Clear Stamps and some scraps of paper and card stock.
How yummy do they all look?!! I am now going to do this with my buttons and bling too!

Hope you enjoyed my little project. Hugs and bugs, Nina x

SHARING THE LOVE...

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
