Very green post

And I’m not talking about the color but about the newest Jillibean Soup collection which calls Mushroom Medley. Why green? Because it’s all about outdoor adventure with all the animals, clouds and wooden elements. But even so it is very versatile as I am going to show you in my first layout. [You stole my heart] […]

Hi Magpies, Niki here today with the Simple Stories Heart collection.

Basic Grey Hillside

Basic Grey’s latest releases for 2016 came with the bitter-sweet news that they were going to be their last releases for papercrafting. I was especially sad to hear this as I just loved their Christmas release in 2015 – the style of it was really up my street. Happily, however, among the new collections was […]

Looking back for inspiration.

Hello! This month I thought I’d take a look back at some favourite layouts of mine and use them for inspiration to make new ones.
