All About the Love

Hi Magpies, Julie with you today and I’m all about the love this month, the love of a partner, the love for a child, and the ultimate love, a wedding!!! This month I chose to work with the collection, Life Emporium by Teresa Collins, which is a lovely neutral collection, with touches of pink, navy […]


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 […]


Small is beautiful

Small is beautiful and size really doesn’t matter when you’ve got a 6 x 6″ Notes & Things paper pad by Crate featuring scaled down versions of the larger 12 x 12″ papers in the stunning range. If like me you tend to scrap smaller format photos, the proportions of the decorative papers are a perfect complement to […]


Crate Paper – Notes and Things …

For the love of anchors

With the weather turning decidedly chillier and the countryside vistas beginning to look slightly autumnal I’m definitely enjoying prolonging summer through my scrapbooking. Ive been using Pink Paislee Solstice and Fancy Pants Nautical on my pages this month. This first page takes me right back to the beach. It was a really windy day, but […]

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 […]


Not My Norm ….

Hi, its Jackie here, with my first month layouts for Hey Little Magpie. So here goes! For this month I selected papers from different manufactures and a few embellishments.  I went for papers that I wouldn’t normally purchase (hence the title) and I’m so glad I did has they were lovely to work with. My […]


Hello Summer

It’s no secret that I adore almost all products produced by Simple Stories, but their “Good Day Sunshine” line might just be my favourite yet. Such a rich, bright and summery colour palette, combined with a gorgeous deep wood effect – I love it! So much so, that I just went ahead and ordered the […]


For the love of 6×6 paper pads
