Thank you for being my Rainbow

Hello Everyone,

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend. I've made a quick project this weekend, a tag from the Tim Holtz Alterations collection using some of the my Magnolia stamps from the Sweet Rainbow Collection. You could use this for a bookmark without the bulky flowers but I made it for a friend to send to brighten their day. I love love love the The Rainbow with Clouds stamp and text they always make me smile everytime I use them. The text reads
"Thank you for being my Rainbow on a Cloudy Day".

Sentiment - Good Thoughts - Tim Holtz Collection 
it reads - "Life is not about waitng for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain".

I have tucked the Magnolia Scallop tag in behind the sentiment & written a little note to my friend.
I've used Copics and lots of sparkly stickles
(The photos came out a little brighter than they are IRL, the winter days are not my favourite for photographing my projects. )

TOMIC Challenge 12 - Magnolia Ink Birthday

Hello Magnolia Lovers,


Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Today is the start of a new challenge over at TOMIC. This week we have a very special celebration, we are celebrating the birthday of Magnolia Ink Magazine. The theme of Challenge 12 - Recycling as Magnolia use recycled paper for the magazine.

There will be a very special prize from Magnolia to celebrate. Hope you will join us & don't forget to stop by the other Design Team members to see all their amazing creations.

I used a breakfast cereal box, the cardboard weight is perfect for my tissue box. I love the finished result and I will definately recyle more often.

Meet Nurse Tilda Magnolia's newest collection - Winner Takes it All
I have also used Magnolia Paper from their Sweet Rainbow Collection

Magnolia Doohickey Cutting Dies, Rose Leaf, Vintage Flowers & Leaves & Heart Swirl

The flowers are from both Magnolia & Wild Orchid Crafts.

For my tissue box I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers here.
My Cricut came in very handy to cut out my tissue box. I find working with imperial fractions a bit tricky, so I converted the fractions to decimal and loaded the dimensions, cutting them with a program called SCAL, making it so much easier.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations this week.

TOMIC Challenge 10 - Masking

Happy Monday Everyone,

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Thanks for dropping by. There's another challenge on over on  TOMIC  Wow, Challenge 10 already, where has the time gone - This week we are asking for MASKING. I hope you will join in, if you need some help, Camilla has made a step by step tutorial for you and don't forget Magnolia Sweden will send a lucky Maggie lover a surprise package selected by random.

 I know I need lots of practice, I normally cut my images out then pop them up on foam tape for dimension. I inked up some old favourites from the Bon Voyage Collection. I love to shop as most girls do, so I couldn't resist these adorable stamps.
