Flowers galore…

I don’t think there is a better way to describe the stunning new In Bloom collection by My Minds Eye than to say it features flowers galore… It’s such a stunning collection, featuring an abundance of blossoms and blooms, with an emphasis on oversized flower heads, evocative of botanical prints. In fact, some of the […]

Inspired by Wilna…

I’m sure most of us have scrapbooking idols? I certainly have a few including Wilna Furstenberg. Her style, for those of you not familiar with it, is very much inspired by art journaling. Wilna uses patterned paper sparingly, but tends to use plenty of embellishments along with striking cut files, usually in white or black card […]
