Flamingo ‘tastic’

You’d have to be walking around with your eyes shut to not notice the current trend for all things Flamingo! From printed textiles and life sized flamingos for your garden, the world of scrapbooking has also been invaded by these stunning birds. And how apt that these beautiful pink creatures were brought to the scrapbooking […]

So diverse…

How diverse? So diverse – that’s how diverse the new ‘I am’ collection form Simple Stories is! Usually collections have a running colour or icon theme running through them and on initial glance I would have definitely thought the same for the ‘I am’ collection too… peaches, aqua and teal colours. But no, this collection […]

Adorkable… is this really a word?

Adorkable, yes you really did read this right, it really is a word! I had to google it when I saw it on one of the stunning On Trend chipboard pieces from MME. And to prove it, the dictionary definition is… ‘a person or object who is adorable and also a dork who is doing something that […]

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 […]

Small is beautiful

Small is beautiful and size really doesn’t matter when you’ve got a 6 x 6″ Notes & Things paper pad by Crate featuring scaled down versions of the larger 12 x 12″ papers in the stunning range. If like me you tend to scrap smaller format photos, the proportions of the decorative papers are a perfect complement to […]

Scrapbooking and typography love…

How time flies… Not only have you heard from most of my fellow Magpies, but four months today it’s Christmas Day! And even though there are some stunning Christmas themed collections appearing in the shop, I thought it was a little too early to be getting into the festive cheer and decided to play with […]
