My creativity has been struck by Moonstruck!

Hello Everyone and welcome to my November blog post.  This month I have stepped away from autumnal stash, despite it feeling a very autumnal day today, and have been playing with some possibly more Valentines papers.  Yes! I have totally bypassed Christmas and looking in to next year! The collection I will be using this […]

I’m smitten…

This month I’ve have the total pleasure of designing with the new range ‘Love Always’ by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and honestly, I’m smitten! I’ve seen some of my fellow DT use their ranges and loved what’s been created, but have never used one of their ranges myself – I for one will not be looking […]

My first layout ‘Dog gone crazy’ is using a snapchat photo that my youngest daughter loves to […]

In my ‘Heart’ a Collection by Simple Stories

Hi Magpies, Niki here today with the Simple Stories Heart collection. I love these little mini collections from Simple Stories, I believe they simply have papers and a few stickers, no embellishments as in the usual collections but I’m a paper girl and am also drowning in other embellishments anyway so this was good for […]

Happy Little Moments

Hi magpies, Julie back with you today sharing 4 layouts I’ve done using the new collections from Elle’s Studio & Websters Pages.   First up I worked with Elle’s Studio ‘Little Moments’, I’ve always loved Elle’s Studio collections, the soft colour palette, the abundance of labels & the added ephemera of wood veneer & cork, […]

I’ve got a Crush on You

Hi Magpies, Niki here, back today with the lovely We R Memory Keepers Crush collection. ‘Crush’ is a Valentines collection but seemed to hit the stores later than other Valentine themed collections so have perhaps been slightly overlooked.
