Oh Joy

… yes that’s what I said when I heard that Pinkfresh Studio had released their new Christmas collection , co-incidentally called OH JOY ! It’s no secret that I love their designs so it seemed fitting that this would be my last post for the Hey Little Magpie design team – moving on to  a […]

Pinkfresh Studio – Indigo Hills

Another cracking collection from Pinkfresh Studios which catches the current vibe for the water-coloured look spot on. Lovely washed out hues of pastel shades along with sultry greys. The perfect combination. Many of the patterned papers can be used straight up as back drops to which you can add your own colour swooshes and paint […]

Yes Please to My Mind’s Eye

You can’t go wrong with the bold colour palette of black, gold and cream in My Mind’s Eye latest range Yes, Please. Whilst the theme of the range is aimed towards celebration and parties, you can use it for virtually any theme you like , as I’ve done here. I’m in love with the 6″ x […]

Sunshine and Happiness

Sunshine and Happiness from Simple Stories passed me by on its first appearance on the Hey Little Magpie website – but I don’t know why . I blame the fact that our early summer here in the UK was anything but sunshine and happiness so I wasn’t feeling the  bright sunny colours – but boy am I […]

Sunny Days

In the absence of a British summer , I felt the need to inject some sunshine into my pages . So what better choice than the Sunny Days collection from Elle’s Studio. If we can’t have the real thing then let’s make our pages shine instead ! Having said that I chose this photo for my first […]

Little Moments from Elle’s Studio

The gentle pastel colours in Little Moments from Elle’s Studio  lend themselves to some sweet colourful layouts to welcome in Spring.       They look perfect set against white card stock with just a small and simple cluster of labels and die-cuts – perfect if time is limited and when isn’t it ?! The cut […]

Basic Grey – Urban Luxe

When Basic Grey announced that they would no longer be producing products for scrapbooking, it felt like losing an old friend. They’ve always pushed boundaries and been adventurous and often surprised me with some of their more strident and eclectic collections and the scrapbooking world has been all the happier as a result. Well I […]

Loving Pink

Of all the colours in the rainbow , I reckon pink has to be one of the most symbolic in terms of girls but as I’ve got two boys , I’m not averse to using it on male layouts too as these show. It had to be hearts for Valentine’s month. This first layout was […]

Fancy Pants Design – Happy Place

Fancy Pants Design’s collection – Happy Place – is just that ! A happy collection of lovely Spring like colours which are perfect for banishing the Winter blues.       I don’t often use pastels but I’m a new convert. These photos suited the colours perfectly . I love the die cut alpha sheets […]
