Pulling a Cracker

Well i'm hoping that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to the New Year? I hadnt had much time for crafting over Christmas, but had to make this little cracker, i made some to put some little presents in, I used some spotty cardstock and set of stamps that Marion has designed. Onto the cardstock i stamped the little trees randomly, to create an outline, that i then coloured in and used some glitter for the baubbles on the trees.

I stamped out the sentiment and mounted it onto some red card, stuck that on and then finished off the ends with some ribbon (after putting anything into the cracker!)

Well, i wish you all a wonderful and happy New Year, and will see you back here in the New Year with my design for next month, so till then Bye x

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.

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…
