Thank you!

Well, i'm back from Ally... :) It was fab this time round. And even though we had a smaller stand, I really loved this time... not that I didn't like last time... this time I think I saw lots more peeps than last and it wasn't so hot!

Anyhoo, I have gotten into the colour navy in a big way. I made this little card for my design team project this time using kaiser paper, glitteratti gems, felt flowers and of course Sugar and Spice stamps :D I used the wedding set... which seems rather random... but I love the little star in this set.

I stamped a small strip of graph paper with the teenie weenie star stamp using a momento ink called 'paris dusk' (a gorgeous navy blue) it really goes with alot of the papers right now, especially the mamma bushka range by kaiser which i've used here. I then layered two felt flowers from our new felties pack and joined together with a fabric covered brad. The patterned paper actually has tiny buttons printed on it but I covered them with the fairly flat glitteratti gems. I used alot but there are so many on the sheet that I didn't feel like I was being really friviolous ;)

Inside I made alittle matt to match the card front and then stamped 'thank you' from the same set onto it. In the set the stamp comes as one continious line, I chopped mine into two but you could keep it whole and ink up one side and stamp the 'thank' first and then clean well, ink up the 'you' and stamp to get the same effect.

This little project is especially dedicated to Marion and Jayne as a little 'thank-you' for a fabby weekend away...!
Hope you liked it :)

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!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


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…
