My second post this month (just got in) LOL ... For the Jones Design Team is again using the lovely Graphic 45 T'was the Night Before Christmas collection.

This time I'm making little baubles, as taught to me years ago by the lovely Paula Brown.


They're so quick and simple to make, so get the kids involved and you can fill a tree in no time.

You can use any size circle punch, my fav is the 1.75" , so go ahead and punch out loads of circles

On a scoreboard score down the centre, do this on all the circles

Using DST adhere the halves together

Keep going all the way round, but before you finish pop a bit of Glossy down one of the joins and add some folded twine

Finish off by adding more circles

And hang with I just have to make a few more to add to my 'tree'

Happy bauble making

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!!

I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx

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…
