Well.... What do you think our Elf should be called, he's a wee bit cheeky and I have a feeling he's going to get up to lots of mischief...but, he NEEDS a name...

Here he is having a bath in our drawer of yummy buttons....if you look closely you can even see the bubbles !!!! At least he's clean :) :)
Myself and Nina managed to have a little play this what did we opt for ? Project Life of course!!! This time we made a couple of quick and I mean, QUICK cards, it's a no brainer for card making.

Then, while I had my mojo out I had a play with my favourite die at the mo....

I love the simplicity of this die, coupled with Heidi Swapp Color Shine, Sequins, Twine, Diamontes and a WOW stamp, it makes for a quick and easy card.

Fold your Kraft card stock in half, die cut 3 rows of hearts, splat some Color Shine, stamp the word Love, stick on some sequins and fill with a little Diamonte, tie 2 twine bows and adhere.
Just round one of the corners off front and back

Here's a little close up of the bows, I just popped a smaller one on top of the other and a little diamonte in the centre.
Now I can't wait to see what he with no name will get up to never know he may even get christened tomorrow.

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…
