Well, as they say better late than never, it's taken quite a while to get here, but got here it has...SNAP! that is. Not quite sure what SNAP'S! all about ? ...Read on..... Are you a Scrapbooker, Card Maker, Project Lifer or Smasher ? If you answered yes to any of the above then this stash is for YOU :) :)  It's one of the simplest, stylish and easiest products that I've worked with. You literally put a project together in a SNAP! Here's a simple layout I did last took about 20 mins, and most of that was choosing the photos LOL !!

Next is a card and although it's been made using the Color Vibe Collection, you can see how easily it works for christmas. All I have to do now is go buy a gift card to slide in the front pocket.

I'm thinking on teaching some classes on this quick and simple style of crafting so if anyone's interested, just contact me.
Right I'm off for a play day (Yes I'll be using my SNAP!)  Have a great day Hugs Marion x…

This month for Fantastic Ribbons we had to incorporate sewing in our project....Well, I thought and thought and though and came up a project sewing with the Bakers Twine...BUT ALAS...I didn't have any...thats what I get for coming up with a design before I looked in my box of lushness. So I reverted to doing a favourite of mine....making flowers !!! I went for the simplest of designs and taking the gorgeous lace, I did a running stitch along the very bottom of the lace and gathered it up in a circle and placed it between the brad and paper flower that I'd previously coloured, I also run a length along the card stock, just so I had another excuse to use it. !!! Lace adds such a softness to your projects, I think it should be law that it's used on 90% of  everything you make :) :) 
So although it's a very simple design, it works for so many occasions Hugs Marion xx


Now, you know I love making flowers and sharing the makings with you. Well today is no exception :) :)  I've just done a video tutorial on this little flower of lushness.... It's so simple to with all my projects... hee hee !!! You can view it here....
