It's That Time!!!!!

Hi everyone, middle of October and I've just realised it's getting closer, dare I say it ................Christmas!!!!!! Don't panic there is still loads of time for shopping and getting organised but if you are in to making christmas cards and haven't started, well this is just a gentle reminder.
I've made a decision to try and use all my scraps of christmas papers this year on all my cards, so with that in mind I have bought a lovely set if Christmas stamps.

The stamp set I've have used for these projects is called Tis The season and are designed by the wonderful Marion Emberson from Sugar and Spice, the set includes messages, snowflake, christmas trees and much more.

In the card above I've used one of the messages and the christmas trees from the set, after stamping the trees I masked them and then by re-stamping with the same stamp, I built a forest of christmas trees.

A small piece of paper, ribbon and the all important glamour dust, my first completed christmas card.

And heres my second. With one set of stamps and scrap pieces of paper different designs are endless.
And don't forget your tags too.............

Hope this hasn't panicked you all too much.

Bye for now and happy crafting Px

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…
