Hey Little Magpie Blog

A post about me and the things I love xox…………


Hi my lovely Magpie Friends, I hope that you are all having a wonderful February – this month I thought that I would base my layouts on things about me and what I love 🙂 I have used some of the fabulous Valentines collections that are in the shop at the minute – including Crate Paper Kiss Kiss and Pebbles We Go Together.  My post is very picture heavy this month so lets start…. This is my first layout. I used a selection of papers from the Kiss Kiss collection to layer behind the photo. I also used the chipboard pieces and some of the stickers from the sticker sheet. IMG_20150211_154810 I created two clusters with the same papers and flowers. IMG_20150211_154343 And finished off this layout with some flowers from my stash and some gems from the store. For my next layout I used papers from the ‘We Go Together’ collection and again from ‘Kiss-Kiss’ IMG_20150211_154551 I added chipboard and stickers from the Kiss-Kiss collection and dewdrops from the store. I finished off with enamel shapes and stickers from the We Go Together collection. For my next layout I used papers from Kiss-Kiss and a doily from the store. I used the chipboard pieces as embellishments from Kiss-Kiss, along with some flowers from the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection.

It created a really good effect – those are the pale pink flowers that you see on the background.IMG_20150211_154045ipp This is my fifth layout.  It ended up a lot more simple than my normal style but I really enjoyed making it.  I used papers and embellishments from the Kiss Kiss collection again and added some sequins to the background to add detail.
