The Real Santa

Hi everyone, just got back from a lovely fresh walk, the sun is shining and the snow has gone, wonderful. Its hard to believe that christmas and the new year was only a few weeks ago.
One good thing to came out of all that snow, I was home alot and I actually managed to do some layouts...........yey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On this layout I made a wreath embelishment by punching out some holly leaves and layering them up around a circle that I had also punched out.
By adding some red stones and a bow (this I made from some ribbon I salvaged from a cracker), I was pleased with the outcome that I had made from scraps.

The title on the page I used some felt alphabets, these I love for the different texture, and of course the santa was stamped with my favorite alphabet stamps from sugar and spice, Fat and Funky Alpha.
I hope your all enjoying your sunny sunday. Happy crafting Px

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…
