So #Happy

Hey Magpies, Niki here having a play with the #Happy collection, designed by Allison Kreft for Websters Pages.  I haven’t used Websters Pages much in the past, but I really don’t know why as these papers are gorgeous!  The collection has a loose party theme but I have managed to come up with a number […]

2015 - Ida Rosberg

Mix and match Shine!

Hi! It’s time for me, Ida, again! Yay! My favorite collection from 2015 was Shine from Maggie Holmes! I always love everything she makes. Her designs and colors always matches my photos and my life perfectly! But every collection is a bit too small for me. I’ve already used up my absolute favorites (except for the […]

Love changes everything…

Of all of our emotions, love is by far the greatest emotion and ultimately changes everything! Be it the love of a partner, a child, a pet or indeed a hobby such as scrapbooking, the passion deep within from the loving of someone or something and we are smitten! ‘Head over heels’, ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’ […]

Hi there Ladies, Sheena here again. Today i’m sharing 3 layouts i’ve made using the Basic Grey range Type Set. It’s no secret that I am a long time fan of their papers but if I had  1 wish it would be that I would really like them to produce ephemera for all their ranges. […]

Tea Party

Hi Everyone! It’s Agnieszka here with my first post in 2016. I was wondering for a very long time what I can use this time. Because I really miss spring I decided to choose Basic Grey – Tea Party collection. It has very spring colors and beautiful flower design. I’ve made 3 very flowery cards. I don’t have […]

Welcome 2016 with Basic Grey Sunkissed & Typeset!

Welcome to 2016 Magpies! Let’s hope it’s a great year! I started the year using the new Basic Grey collections, Sunkissed and Typeset. These collections both led me to doing quite simple ad graphic LO’s. Sometimes I find a collection leads me to making pretty, layered LO’s but generally my style is graphic and simple. […]

Pocket Letter - Ida Rosberg

Pocket Letters!

Hi! For this blog post I wanted to try something different. Christmas is almost over and a new year is upon us. I never send any cards for new year.  But this year I really wanted to… I was thinking about sending late Christmas presents or inspiration for a new PL-year… or both! I’ve seen it […]

‘Hello Gorgeous’ – need I say more?

‘Hello Gorgeous’ is the super lush range by Heidi Swapp and if ever a name summed up a collection perfectly, first prize would have to go to this one! Although designed to be used in conjunction with the memory planners, I thought that they were way to pretty to be ‘shut away in a book’ […]

Christmas Wishes and Wish Season

I’ve so enjoyed using Pinkfresh Studio’s Christmas Wishes collection. The papers are magical and lend themselves to any type of Christmas or Winter layout or project. Having used a ton of product in last month’s Advent Calendar project, I still had an amazing amount left. Enough for a whole new project and another couple of […]
