Pale & pastel prettiness

Hey Magpies! It’s October already, how did that happen! This month I decided to do some pale & pastel LO’s.

Loads of colour with Bella Blvd.

Hey Magpies! Welcome to May. This month (and next month too), I picked the fab new collection from Bella Blvd, Make your Mark. I LOVE this collection.

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 […]


Finding a Happy Place with Dear Lizzy!

Hey Magpies, Rachel here and it’s welcome to July from me! Hope this means the start of summer here in the UK. June was a bit of a washout here in the west of England, I have my fingers crossed that June will be fabulous and sunny. I decided to use the Dear Lizzy, Happy Place […]
