Hi everyone, where has the summer hols gone.......................just wanted to share this layout with you as this is one of the few things I've been able to get around to doing as the time has just flown.

Just loved these photos of my son Jack and our dog Marley while we was walking on the costal path in Cornwall.

I felt the photos were brought to life by the paper, purchased from sugar and spice, as the photos themselves seemed very neutral due to the stone work on the mines.

Before I go on just check out these fab button stamps from sugar and spice, I only used one , but there are more designs in the pack with a lovely quote 'As Cute As a Button'.

I loved this layout for its simplicity of a few stamped buttons. Some layered felt, card flowers and a title brought the whole project together.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the hols.

Bye for now and happy crafting x

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!!

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


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…
