This is a little homage to the two wonderful ladies who have helped me no end, getting ready for the Handmade Fair.....i couldn't have done it without you guys ....Thank you Paula and Suzanne,

I started off with this gorgeous little Maya Road Calendar stand......but did I use it for a calendar ... NO... to me, it's a mini album, actually everything in my life is a mini album....I love them.

It's fab as it has such a sturdy acrylic base and thick chipboard pages, that it takes Heidi Swapp Colour Shine just perfect.

I know you can't see it clearly here, but the mica is just beautiful.

I've done every other page, using the fab PaperArtsy collage background technique, as shown to us by the wonderful Leandra. I could happily teach this technique forever as no two ever come out the same !!!

I may just do another class in out for the Sugar and Spice newsletter.




And yes, of course it will be on display at the show :) :)

Thanks for posting this great project. I bought one of these maya Road acrylic calendars a long while back and haven't done anything with it. Mine didn't come with any cards... ~Terry

Mine didn't come with any cards, so,I was surprised to see your project had cards to alter. Anyway, I've had it for a long while so think it's time I did something with it. Thanks for posting as I had forgotten I had this LOL ~Terry

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…
