Card time

For me this time of year doesnt mean xmas preparation it means LOTS OF BIRTHDAYS, lots of my friends are celebrating their birthdays this month, which means lots of cards to make!!

I recently bought a lovely set of stamps from SUGAR AND SPICE called SCRIBBLE SENTIMENTS so I thought I would make a card using these.

I started off by layering 3 pieces of card stock and sticking this onto a card blank. Then I handcut a cake shape from a piece of patterned paper and attached this to the front of the card. You could do this with pre made embellishments or your own hand cut shapes.

I wanted a simple stamped message on the front so I used the 'With' and 'Love' stamps and on the inside I used the 'Happy' and 'Birthday' stamps.

This card is so quick and easy to make and can be adapted to suit any occasion.

Hope you like

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!!

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…
