Focusing on stickers and chipboards

Hello Everyone in 2015!!! Today in my post I’d like to show you how easy and fast you can create whatever you want using stickers and chipboards. For my first 2 projects I choose fantastic and very versatile Sycamore Lane collection by Elle’s Studio. As a background I used my favorite American Crafts – Amy […]


Love is all we need … and Crate Paper’s Kiss Kiss !

Crate Paper is having a purple patch ( or should I say pink patch ) at the moment . Every collection gets better than the last and long may that continue. I’m a sucker for a celebration and Valentine’s Day is no exception so their Kiss Kiss collection was a gift. I’ve never shirked from […]


Love is in the air – Kiss Kiss

Hi everyone! It’s Nat here bringing you some brand new card ideas for 2015! With Christmas well and truly behind us I always find January a bit of a slow month to get back in the creative groove – the weather is dull, there’s not much exciting happening in the diary, and I’m usually trying […]


New beginnings and a little bit of love.

Hello 2015 and hello to a new Project Life album. At the beginning of my project life albums I like to make an opening spread, which basically fills in those pockets behind what will become the left half of Week 1’s double page spread. I always include the year, the dates this album will cover (I use two […]


Mixed Bag

Loud and Proud

Hi everyone and welcome to my November post, hope everyone is recovering from all the Halloween sweets and have been able to scrub the fake blood off your faces!  I decided for this months post I was going to tackle LOUD and PROUD papers and see what I could do with them.  I went through […]


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 […]


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 […]
