Different Project Life spreads

 Week 34 – Almost a normal Project Life spread My first spread for this month is almost as my “normal” spreads. The only difference is the photo pocket page on the right side. I adore the small vellum and gold leaves from Studio Calico, and they are perfect for autumn. I matched the green and […]


Glittery thickers…

I’ve re-found my love of glittery thickers! With so much choice these days for alphas for your layouts, from manufacturers stickers to specialist die-cuuting machines, I for one have been less inclined to reach for my thickers stash and use them for titles on my layouts. In turn, I seem to design each layout overlooking that […]

My friends will not be surprised to learn that I was drawn to this range in the shop because of it’s wonderful autumn colour palette as it’s so very me. This […]

It’s also the time in the craft shopping calendar when all the new holiday releases are hitting […]


My Mind’s Eye – Jubilee – Tangerine

    I love the way My Mind’s Eye put their collections together . It makes scrapbooking effortless and yet still allows room for creative interpretation. The Jubilee – Tangerine range had just enough orange to conjure up images of Autumn pumpkins to me so it seemed apt for October’s Blog post. It’s amazing how far […]


Colour schemes

When it comes to inspiration for a page, sometimes things just seem to fall into place and other times a little jumping point is required. If I need a little push in the right direction, I often use a colour scheme to help me on my way. I have a colours board on Pinterest where […]


You had me at hello.

This month I’ve been trying out the Maggie Holmes Project Life kit. It’s no secret that I love the Crate Paper collections, especially the Maggie Holmes lines, but I’d never tried her Becky Higgins Project Life kit before. I decided to order the ‘Sampler’ kit from Hey Little Magpie, such great value at £3.75 and give […]
