Very girly post

Hi Everyone!!!! It’s Agnieszka here with another post for you. Because I recently produce Christmas cards in massive scale I wanted to relax a little bit and I make something totally not in Christmas spirit . I’d like to remind you of  some older collection from Crate Paper. I fall in love with this papers […]


DIY Christmas from Simple Stories

Good morning everyone! It’s Nat here back to share another round of Christmas cards in the run up to December. It’s never too late to get your Christmas card groove on, in fact I tend to get much more “in the zone” come November thanks to Christmas being around you everywhere you look –  beautifully […]


Mixing It Up with Crate Paper and Gossamer Blue Collections

These two collections – Crate Paper’s Open Book from Maggie Holmes and the new Gossamer Blue Collection On My Desk and Gramercy Road leapt out at me when they appeared in Hey Little Magpie’s shop The colours from both mixed well so I decided to base this month’s projects on  a mixture from all three.

What a treat! If you haven’t checked them out yet be sure to follow the link and take […]


Week in the Life

  When I first started scrapbooking back in 2006 I came across a scrapbooker who really inspired me with her scrapbooking style, it was Ali Edwards. I love taking part in her projects, like her ‘December Daily‘ (a 25 day project leading up to Christmas Day) and her ‘Week in the Life’. The idea behind Ali’s ‘Week […]

Bright & cheerful LO’s with a kit

So this month I decided to try working with a kit. I’m a bit useless at this so it was a bit of a personal challenge for me! And, I don’t have a picture of what I used before I started either I’m sorry.  I didn’t really know what I would want to use for my kit, […]

A whole collection in a tiny package…

Hello. My name is Niki and I am a paper-aholic. There, I admitted it. I can’t bare to miss out on a single pattern and therefore usually HAVE to buy every paper in a collection, usually in the form of a collection pack or paper stack. But sometimes the collection packs aren’t available and I […]
