Love Squares

As we all know St Valentines day is round the corner and for me and my Hubby this is a very special day as its our wedding anniversary, I know, aren't we romantic! Anyway I thought I would be organized and make him a card for both occasions. Using the Fat n Funky Sugar and Stamps, I stamped and heat embossed the word love on over four squares. I always forget about heat embossing but when I do it I fall in love again! In the middle of the card, I have used the Cute as a Button Heart button stamp. I Poked the middle of the button holes out with a poky tool and tied some ribbon through to give the effect of a real button.
Take a closer look at the embossing - mmmmm nice!

Using small squares is a good way of using up scraps that you might have in your stash and can look really effective.
Love and Bugs

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…
