Hi everyone! It’s Nat here, scheduled a little later in the month this time round for a very special reason. The projects I’m sharing today made up part of my wedding gift to my brother and my lovely new sister-in-law for their big day on the 17th of July (the day after I usually post […]

Finding favorites!

Hi! I’m a hoarder when it comes to good scrapbooking products! But it’s been a while since I fell so much in love with a specific product that I felt the urge to hoard! The glitter gold dots from Jen Hadfield must be the latest… Studio Calico is good at producing products with hoarding potential! […]

It all begins with cardstock!

I doubt that many layouts begin without either cardstock or some form of patterned paper? And whilst Sarah and Lianne are busy away at CHA sourcing gorgeous new lines for us to drool over, there is so much yummy stash already in the shop it sometimes gets overlooked, even by the true die-hard magpies amongst […]

Totally Random (and chipboard!)

Round in circles with MME Jubilee!

Hey Little Magpies! Welcome to July. I can not believe we are halfway through 2015 already. This month I chose a really bright and cheerful range from My Minds Eye, Jubilee. The best news is, the whole line is in The Sale so it’s all at least 50% off! I ordered a selection of papers, some […]

Flutterby

  Niki here, all in a flutter over the Fancy Pants ‘Flutter’ collection. I thought the colours were very ‘me’ when I looked at this collection online but when it arrived I absolutely loved it. It is pretty without being overly girly and the designs are really lovely and aren’t themed at all, which works […]

Bold backgrounds and big titles…

Often one to shy away from bold backgrounds and big titles, upon opening the ephemera pack from the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection, which features an abundance of the most stunning acetate or vellum big titles, bold background were simply a must! ‘Happy Day’ started with the bold background paper from the Brighton Pier collection by […]
