Some Exciting News


Hello everyone, I am so pleased to tell you all that I am now a full member of the Magnolia Design Team. I have been designing for the YouTube channel for two years, but I am now on the team, and HERE is my Magnolia Blog.

Here is a card I made for my friend that has recently had a baby, and I thought that it was rather apt for my first post there!
Hugs,

Happy Birthday


Good morning everyone, hope that you have ahd a lovely weekend. Here in the UK it is half term, already!! It only seems two minutes ago since they went back to school!!

One of my friends at work is 40 at the end of the month, and here is the card that I have made for her using Tilda with a Big Poppy. There is a list of products at the end of the post to go straight to the item in the shop.


I have also used the recently released, limited edition doohickey cake die, again a link is at the end of the post.


Tilda has been coloured in with my distress reinkers to match the new papers from Maja Design, just when I think that I have my favourite design they come out with another stunning collection!!


Here is a close up of the cake, I have used a hot glue gun to assemble the cake, and kept it so that the icing looks a bit 3D. I have used several of the sheets from the monochromes.


This gorgeous Sakura Branch die is now back in stock, again see the end of the post for a link.


The 40 has been cut out of some of the monochrome Maja Design paper, that matches the celebration collection perfectly, with a Roxstamps Arabic Numbers.


Here is an arty shot of my card...

Give Love with Tiddly Inks


Morning everyone, how are you all? I'm still on Jury Duty, and I must admit I am finding it extremely interesting, if any of you have done Jury Duty you will know how much sitting around there actually is, but the time in court makes up for that. But, I am finding it extremely hard going mentally. I have always wanted to be picked for it, and it has comeat a good time in my life for me too.

There is a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks and our theme is Give Love, pop over and have a look at the gorgeous inspiration the girls have made over there.


It's a relatively CAS card for me, but I didn't think that this card needed anything else added to it. I kept the Gummiapan frame die on while I distress the image, to create the frame effect. I have also used the Gummiapan splats stamp.


 I have cut out a number 3 using the RFoxstamps die, these are a lovely size and they cut beautifully, I used a coordinating paper from the Maja Designs Celebration Monochromes collection. You can also see a close up here of the splat die.


This is a die from a previous Doohickey Magazine, volume 18 is due to be shipped imminently, click HERE to order yours

Magnolia Wedding Card


Good morning everyone, Becky here with you on this cold Monday morning. I hope that those of you in the UK don't have too much disruption from the snow. You might remember that two weeks ago that I said I was on Jury Duty, and I have managed to land myself on a case that is expected to run 8-10 weeks, so no nights, lates or weekends for me for a while, yay!!!

For today's card I have used some of the new goodies from the You're Invited collection from Magnolia, and some older Maja Design papers, which are currently on sale :)


I have used my Distress Reinkers to colour this lovely couple in, white takes a lot of effort to look not that much different. If I'm honest I never thought that I woulld use this typewriter, until I used it-I love it, and I know that I will use it a lot more!!


Here it is in close up, it is so intricate, I have forced the keys out so that they stand slightly proud.


Some of these flowers are from my stash, the ones that I have used from the shop are at the end of the post.


Here is an arty shot of the card, you can sort of see the keys on the typewriter. The sheet in the typewriter is part of the die.


Thank you for popping by,

Hugs,

Becky xx

Live, Love and Laugh


Morning everyone, I hope that you have all had a lovely time the last few weeks, I had a quiet time, but it's been lovely to have been off work with my babies. I'm hopefully in for a bit of fun these next two weeks too, I've got jury duty!

Today's card is something totally different for me, but it is something that I have been toying with doing for a while so I hope that you like it...


I told Suha that I was planning on doing something different, and that I hoped what I had in my head would come out OK, it's not quite what I had pictured, but I really do like how it has turned out.


The focal point is LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH from Gummiapan, and I have used the HEN'S NET stamp also from Gummiapan to distress the edges.


Tucked behind the sentiment layer is a HEN'S NEST DIE, from Gummiapan.


PINE CONES aren't just for Christmas, they also look lovely on flower arrangements, there is also my favourite CURL FLOWERS, CHERRY BLOSSOM, VINTAGE WHITE FLOWERS and PAPER FLOWERS. There is also COUNTRY LEAVES doohickey dies, you don't thinkk that I would make a card without using a Magnolia product do you, lol??!


I have used papers from Maja Designs Denim & Friends, I have used both sides of HEARTBREAKER, one side of BLAZER and also from Shades of Denim the solid colours of DARK BLUE and AQUAMARINE.

Thank you for stopping by,

Hugs,

Becky xx

There is 5% off the goodies that I have used just quote code Y88594C4F2OEG it's valid throughout December too, and not all of them are Christmas items.



I have coloured Tilda with Star with my distress reinkers, and added lots if sparkle with glamour dust and stickles.


I have used a nested stitched oval to cut Tilda out, all of the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain ink.


These are Doohickey mistletoe dies, and I have used small pearls for the berries.


I love these snowflakes, from Gummiapan and think they look lovely with a pearl and some stickles on too.

Christening Card


Morning everyone, Becky here with you today with a card I have made for my friends baby's christening.


I have used the super cute Chubby Baby Feet and coloured them in with my distress inks and I have used one of the nested stitched ovals dies from Gummiapan.


Here's a close up of those super cute feet...


And my usual flowers, I don't think that I have made a card for ages without a white curled rose, and I have added a dash of darker pink with three vivid fuchsia paper flowers.


I have used both sides of Enjoying The Fragrance from Maja Designs Sofiero collection.

Thank you for popping by,

Hugs,

Becky xx
