A Mini Story

Hello all,

Its my turn again, and this time I have made a little mini book. I wanted to put together a little snap shot of my recent Take that concert. I have done 12 x 12 LOs but I wanted something that I could leave on show for people to have a nose through.


The theme of the show was the circus, so I wanted papers that were bright and colourful to reflect the fun of the clowns (which the boys dressed up as). I used American craft papers, a range is available in store.

I used the word part of the scribble flower stamps and the scrolls from the wedding invite stamps.

I covered each part of the accordian book with the patterned papers and added my photos. I stamped words onto pieces of cardstock and added them to the pages as embellishments.

I also stamped onto a button and onto ribbon and added these to a tag, this tag can be used for journalling or more photos.

I hope you like my little book.

Here are a few more pics x 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…
