I love this circular Happy Birthday stamp from Sugar and Spice, they're just so happy! So I decided to use it as a centre for some bazzil flowers that I layered for fullness. Using some lovely papers from my stash and coordinating ribbons carried the colourscheme through. Using an embossed paper for the top section added some texture. With the yellow and green card I used a strip of the patterend paper along the ribbon which I think has given a really nice finish.

This format of patterend papers and ribbon delminiators isn't new, but it has a very modern and classy feel and is very easy to make your own.

Happy stamping, Ladies.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx

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…
