Snappy Birthday

Well, this week Autumn has well set in... wind and rain... yuk!! And of course the birthday season has kicked in ... :) Both my kiddos birthdays are in September and so here's a cute card for the little man in my life!

I used scribble sentiments which can be found here... I also used the little letter stickers we stock from my little shoebox. Combining both gives you alittle more texture and a cute sentiment 'Snappy Birthday' :D

I covered a card with patterned paper and a strip of green cardstock and satin ribbon. I hand cut that sweet, long croc from some of our kaiser paper and mounted on 3d foam. To enhance his spots and nostrils I blobbed on glossy accents to give an epoxy finish, you could sprinke with alittle glitter too while wet if you fancied a glitzy croc!

So for those of you who have birthdays in September... Happy Birthday!

Love, Polly!

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…
