Good Morning Magnolia....


I am back, finally!  After our house move I have been without a craft room for several weeks and I feel like my right arm has been cut off.  The electrician came to install some new lights for me but found a wasp nest in the loft so after a quick call to the pest controller all was good and the decorators moved out on Thursday.  Now I need to empty the boxes and move in (quite a few boxes as you can imagine!).

So this month I am highlighting the beautiful Magnolia Lane Suite.  Here is what we made.

These papers are absolutely gorgeous, they will not disappoint.

Here are some other bits and pieces we made throughout the day.

Thank you for dropping by, I will be back soon with a craft room update!

Happy Stampin!

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop - Fancy Folds...

Good afternoon and thank you for joining me today, you may have hopped over from the amazing Deb Naylor or starting your journey here.  Either way, we have some amazing projects to share with you today.

The theme for this month's hop is Fancy Folds.

There are literally hundreds of different fancy fold cards and they evolve over time and have a re-birth from time to time too as we forget about them and then suddenly they reappear.

This hop was good timing for me as I recently hosted an all day event with fellow demonstrator Laura Mackie with the theme 'Fancy Folds'.

Here are a few of the folds that we made on the day.

This is called a Dutch Fold.

 A wiper card, can you see that little birdy popping up!?

Mmmm not sure what this one is called but it is a 3d freestanding card which has an easel card built in!

Each of the attendees received the beautiful Laser Cut Bird Ballad Cards & Tin (they are gorgeous!)

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today and I am now going to pass you on to Laura who I am sure has something beautiful to share with you.

Don't forget to leave a comment, we really appreciate your feedback!

Happy Stampin'

Let's Sail Away...

I am dropping in today just to say hi and to apologise for my absence over the last few weeks.  I am in the process of preparing to move home, most of my craft products are packed as they will be the first to go and wow is it stressful!!!  I said never again six years ago but here we are again!

Anyhow I want to share with you today a project that we made at a recent class. 

It is using the amazing Come Sail Away Suite.

We made this hanging home d├ęcor piece incorporating the brilliant Hand-Lettered Prose Dies.

I also made this alternative using the A Good Man Stamp sets (love these stamps)!

I like to put on a display of items at these events and here are just a few.

 I hope you like what I have to show you today and I will be back towards the end of the month with a few more bits to share with you.  Normal service to be resumed in August!!!

Happy Stampin'

Ink.Stamp.Share June Blog Hop - 3D...

 Good afternoon and thank you for joining our June Hop.  This month we have been tasked with making a 3D project.  I love making 3d projects as it always amazes me how we can make such amazing things from flat pieces of card!

I have something a little special for you today.  It is called a Tower Explosion Box.  I have wanted to make one of these for ages but never seemed to get around to it but I have made it as a display piece for my Sail Away Fun Day class which is actually happening as we speak!

Here is the box...

It looks like a normal gift box, albeit rather large, but wait, when you take off the lid...

There's another box, but wait...

And wait...there's more...

I won't lie, this is a labour of love, lots of head scratching and cardstock/DSP but I think it is worth it.  I wanted to show off the DSP so I haven't over decorated the box but you could go wild and decorate all sides if you wanted to.

I have seen a fair few of these doing the rounds recently so I just searched Tower Explosion Box on You Tube and adjusted the measurements accordingly to create the size I wanted.  Maybe one day I will write my own tutorial using my measurements, but for now....I am going to pass you on to Linda Handford who I am sure has something amazing to share with you today!

Happy Stampin'
