Inspired by Wilna…

I’m sure most of us have scrapbooking idols? I certainly have a few including Wilna Furstenberg. Her style, for those of you not familiar with it, is very much inspired by art journaling. Wilna uses patterned paper sparingly, but tends to use plenty of embellishments along with striking cut files, usually in white or black card […]

Chasing Dreams with Maggie Holmes

Hey there Magpies, Niki here with you today, super excited to be working with the new Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection, Chasing Dreams. I didn’t buy every paper in the collection, I mostly went for the ones with fussy cutting potential and believe me, I really went for the fussy cutting, so much so that […]

Embellishing with Freckled Fawn

Freckled Fawn are a great place to start if you usually buy your embellishments as part of a collection and want […]

Round & round with Illustrated Faith!

Hey Magpies, welcome to February! This month I am using Illustrated Faith again, mainly the You Are Loved collection. I decided to focus on circles this month, to try and snap me out of my grid obsession and it worked! I felt my grid LO’s were getting very samey and boring but a grid is my go-to […]

This year I started my project Life again. I had one year break because it was very stressful to me.  Sometimes […]

December Daily 2016

For the last 3 years I always start my December Daily but never finish any of them. Usually after 3-4 days I gave up because I didn’t have enough time or patience to document every single day. This year I decided to try again to make one to keep all of our Christmas memories. Now when we […]
