Tomorrow (25th October, sometimes this posts late) !!! is the first of the NEW Creative Keepsakes Shows on QVC, and to say I'm nervous AND excited is an understatement !!!
So much thought has gone into this show and the products in it (all hand picked by myself and Sarah, one of the lovely buyers)
It's aimed at Scrapbookers, beginners and advanced, let's face it if we scrap, we like to see anything associated LOL but we're also going to concentrate on Card makers and mini album enthusiasts... didn't want to leave you guys out !! So to get your mojo going I've done a little video tutorial HERE
Then, next month Amy's doing one on the 25th November (I think that's the right date) So we hope we can encourage and inspire you and we would love your feedback.
I sent a newsletter out today to all out newsletter subscribers, I know I know, about time !!! but in usual fashion I completely forgot a very important message... so here goes....
As from 1ST NOVEMBER until 31ST MARCH we will be closing the shop at 4PM instead of 5PM, EXCEPTING SATURDAYS where we will stay open till 5PM, this is to aid my lovely mum, who helps me no end, and she doesn't like going home in the dark !!! and seeing as I'm away for 3 weeks in January and she'll be holding the fort it's the least I can do !! Apologies for any inconvenience
I have been teasing a bit lately, as we've had some rather yummy stash delivered, and I've now managed to get a little bit of it on the website... CHECK IT OUT HERE, but seriously there's loads more in the shop, including the NEW Making Memories Scorer/Trimmer... This is soooooo cool!!!
There's probably loads of other things I want to say, but my brains elsewhere this evening... SORRY !!!
Anyhoo's I will again, try and get picci's to post of all the show samples.

caught half the show when I got in from work and enjoyed it - really liked the tip about using a fork to tie bows - really clever - thanks for sharing

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's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


When it's a dress, of course !!!!
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…
