Love love love these laser cut acrylic words from Color Cast Designs. The ‘hello’ is just over an inch wide so are perfect for project life layouts ^__^

These laser cuts are great quality, and including manufacturing and delivery (USA to the UK) I got them in just over two weeks. I cannot recommend this company high enough.


project life core kits


Added another two core kits to my collection; Maggie Holmes Open Book and Everday.

The Maggie Holmes Open Book core kit is beautiful, with detailing that highlights the designs from the Open Book collection.

DSCN1014I ordered the Everyday core kit on a whim… I was concerned before it arrived that I’d bought something I may not use, but when it arrived I discovered that it is an absolutely beautiful kit, the pictures online do not do this kit justice at all.

My only disappointment is the new style of packaging for the core kits, the cardboard is quite flimsy and having to pull the plastic tray each time I wish to use the cards instead of having a lid to lift is annoying.



First order is from Hey Little Magpie… which includes some goodies from the new Crate Paper wonder collection. I love the self inking ‘hello’ stamp… I adore the word hello ^__^



Second is my order from Scrapbook.com… I think I may have gone a little overboard ^__^

Got some papers from the new Barista collection from BasicGrey, the yellow, grey and black colour scheme is so beautiful. Also got some more goodies from the Color Ways collection (Noir) from Paper House Productions, the papers I got in my last Scrapbook.com order are so beautiful and great quality^^

There’s a little more colour in my orders this week… and lots of gold. Love the Heidi Swapp project life kits and got them for under $10 each^^

my sanctuary



Although I still have to decorate (my apartment is a new build) I have been working on getting my art room organized… my own little sanctuary, complete with a vintage Olivetti typewriter (called Ducky as its duck egg blue^^ )

I’m building up an apothecary style, lots of bottles, jars and baskets, both wicker and wire… and skulls and skeletons of course^__^


I have two of my paintings above my desk (my favorites) and two of the photos I took in the Catacombs under Paris.


I love my wire letter rack, although instead of letters it holds my new supplies ready to be sorted ^__^
