Holidays are coming!

There’s no hiding now – in the words of the Coca-Cola ad – Holidays are coming! October is usually the time of year when my Christmas crafting really gets ramped up in preparation for the craziness of December. It’s also the time in the craft shopping calendar when all the new holiday releases are hitting […]


You had me at hello.

This month I’ve been trying out the Maggie Holmes Project Life kit. It’s no secret that I love the Crate Paper collections, especially the Maggie Holmes lines, but I’d never tried her Becky Higgins Project Life kit before. I decided to order the ‘Sampler’ kit from Hey Little Magpie, such great value at £3.75 and give […]


Using spots and stripes!

So this month I decided to use some spots & stripes and hopefully give you guys some ideas for using spotty and stripey paper. I do love a good striped paper but they can be a bit hard to use can’t they! So first up I have a LO I did a little while ago using […]


A Love Story…

My hubby and I have recently been on a long weekend away without our children. Most of the time we are so focused on them that we forget about each other, so our recent break from them gave us new focus and made us realise that time to ourselves is important. While we were away […]


Vellum & Silver & Gold

Hi again! It’s me, Ida, here with a monthly Project Life post. This post could be called “Use 12*12 papers for Project Life” or “Mix & Match” (just as my previous post). Because for these three spreads I chose to use 3 different 12*12 papers and matched them with bits and pieces from different brands and […]

Inspired by Notes & Things

  You know that feeling you get when you see a new scrapbook collection and know that you have to get your hands on it? Well that was me and the new collection by Crate Paper ‘Notes & Things’. The colours, the sweet embellishments and the gorgeous papers all ‘spoke’ to me, they inspired me to […]


Extra Large Wedding Photos!

Hi everyone, it’s Rachel here again and this time I’m using extra large photos and the absolutely awesome new line from Crate Paper, Notes & Things. I just adore this line, the subtle colours, the touches of gold and all the embellishments are just lush! If anything is out of stock in the shop and you really need it, […]


Oh so Dreamy…

Good morning and happy Thursday to you, albeit a little wet and chilly for an August summers day. It’s Niki here with my first Creative Team projects for Hey Little Magpie and I chose to work with the Heidi Swapp collection ‘Dreamy’. I really love the mix of pinks, blues/turquoises, kraft and yellow, which is […]


New mask, old stash.

Hello, this is Louise with my first post for the new Hey Little Magpie blog. I have taken a break from scrapping for a few months due to a busy schedule, and when I went to browse the store to choose what I wanted to work with, my mojo was a little overwhelmed with all […]
