Money wallets

Well, it's not long to go now, one more sleep then the big day is with us!!  I bet most of us have been frantically trying to do all the things we need to to prepare for tomorrow recently and one of the things I've been busy making are money wallets.  The teenagers I give presents to all tend to want money as their gift these days so I make a special little wallet envelope to present their money in as I think it just adds a little extra something and they are really quick and easy to make!

You can adapt the wallets for both christmas and birthday and as I've had both this month here are photos of two I've made.  The first is for christmas - I've used Luxe patterned papers, an American crafts topper and the happy stamp from the scribble flowers set which I've stamped in perfect medium ink then heat embossed using tinsel embossing powder.

The second is a birthday wallet I made for a birthday gift.  I used the number and part of greeting stamps from the happy birthday with a cherry on top set.

To make all you need is a piece of cardstock or heavy weight patterned paper cut to 6.5" width and 8" length.  You then need to fold and score (I use a bone folder to get my edges nice and sharp) at 3", 3.5" (this piece makes the wallet) and at 1.5".  Secure the wallet section with two pieces of DST and decorate as you please.  I usually put a blank square on the back of the wallet to write my greeting.

I hope everyone has a lovely christmas and I'll see you all in the new year!

love and hugs to all, Nic xo

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 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…
