Shrinkie, dinkie, doo dah!

Hi girlie's, this little project I made to show you something that I love to do with my stamps. Oh and to let you in on a little class secret..... I love shrink plastic, you know, Shrinkies that you do with the kids but a crafters version. This is sold in sheets and can be stamped on with an alcohol based ink like Stazon. Now most people would be putting this in the oven, the normal way of shrinking it but here at in Sugar and Spice land we like things to be done NOW and we haven't got a oven too!
So we put them in a mug and heat with a heat gun. Make sure you keep moving the heat around and when the shrink plastic starts to bend, toss it like a pancake! It should shrink to 7 times smaller then how it started.

Ta dah!

How cute do the Fat n Funky look?!

Love and bugs

I always use a heat gun for my shrinky but never thought about putting them in a mug, good idea!

I love those little letter tiles, they're so fab. I think I'm going to have to give in on my stash diet and buy those stamps.

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…
