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 […]

Hello Gorgeous

            This collection from My Minds Eye was released a little while ago, and is not one of their brand new collections, so it may have escaped your notice if you (like me) tend to gravitate towards the “what’s new” section of the Hey Little Magpie shop! However, it’s well […]

Woodgrain, aqua, pink and gold.

Do you have favourite colour combinations which you keep coming back to? I definitely do. I love woodgrain and aqua (including teal and turquoise) mixed with a touch of pink and gold. In fact swap the pink for red and that’s another go to for me, or replace those with black and white. Oh, how lovely […]

Gold is still on trend…

I’m sure that many of us would have thought that by now, gold in the world of scrapbooking would have long gone? It hasn’t and gold is still very much on trend, much to my delight! Whether it’s the magpies in us (no pun intended!) that migrate to the beautiful lustre of gold or whether […]

She Blooms by Illustrated Faith

Hey Magpies, Niki here, back with the She Blooms Collection by Illustrated Faith, a collection I originally totally overlooked simply becuase it was by Illustrated Faith.
