My post for the Jones Design Team for November is rather late....Yes, I did say November, you see I had to wait for the fabulous Captued Moments Right Now Cards from Kaisercraft....but the wait was worth it....they're gorgeous and so versatile !!!!
The thing I love about Kaisercraft is their packs are sold in 6" x 4" or 3" x 4", just fab if you run out of one size, you don't have to buy a mixed pack and can get just the size you need.
Project Life or should I say Pocket Scrapbookng.....doesn't have to be flat and it doesn't have to take hours, you can knock up a layout in no time with a page protector, a few cards and a few embellies. The tip I want to give you in this one, is DONT worry if your photo is wider than the pocket, just look for a place to cut it and you can split it between pockets. All you have to do is take two cards and pop a bit of washi on the back to hold them together.
Next, flip them over and adhere your photo on the cards, making sure you're not going to cut through people.
Flip back over and cut between the cards 
Why not use one of the cards to make a pocket, just cut a third off and punch a half circle in the top and adhere round the sides leaving the top open. Pop a photo on and insert, this is great for when you want to do a bit of secret journalling.
Next just add a few embellies and don't forget to use the Kaisercraft Collectables die cut shapes, these are great little additions.

It doesn't have to be loads, in fact this is very 'light' for me .... But it works.
So if you feel the urge over the holidays you can get the cards HERE along with lots of other Pocket Scrapbooking stash and create till your heart's content.
Have a Fabbi Christmas everyone and THANK YOU for all your support in 2014, it truly is appreciated. See you in 2015 with LOTS more inspo...

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…
