Midway reminder for Simply Magnolia - CAS or fully loaded

Hi everyone!
I'm here to remind you that you have almost a full week left to enter our current challenge over at 
CAS or Fully Loaded
so that pretty much covers all styles of creativity!

As you may know, I've recently become obsessed with the CAS style and just love doing them! Sooooo, you've got four for the price of one today, as I had some thank you cards to make in a hurry and CAS cards are perfect for when you're short of time!

Tildas are all coloured using distress inks, pearl pen detail, machine sewn edges
Papers are all Magnolia
thank you text stamps are by Stampin up

As you know our sponsor this fortnight is The Rubber Buggy 
with this prize up for grabs

Thanks for visiting my blog today, your comments mean so much!

The doohickey flower was one that I made at Magnolia Sweden, at their open day last October.

Anything Goes - Marvelous Magnolia DT

Hi! I hope this scheduled post goes live when it should, as I should be in Holland right now (pics to follow when I get home!)
This is my last creation as a Marvelous Magnolia design team member, I've loved every second and enjoyed seeing everyone's creations every week, so it's a sad farewell. I've decided not to reapply this time so I can concentrate on my other DT work and my commitment to running the Simply Magnolia challenge blog. I wish everyone entering the DT call the best of luck and hope whoever is picked enjoys their term on the team as much as I did.
So, with all that said, I'd better get on with telling you about the challenge......

'Anything Goes' with DT call 

Paper- Magnolia Red Rose Ornament 
Magnolia Summer buzz Tilda coloured with distress inks, finished with shabby white frantage
Magnolia postmark stamp
WOC flowers
Magnolia doohickeys - foliage, flag and vintage lace

Good luck everyone!

Travel/holiday @ Simply Magnolia

Hellooooo, thanks so much for popping by, this is my DT creation for
Simply Magnolia's current challenge


As I'm on holiday myself at the minute, I thought it appropriate to have a holiday/travel themed challenge. It doesn't even have to be a summer holiday that inspires you, it could be a winter holiday - another Christmas card opportunity lol! 
Anyway, I decided to go with a beach/tag style creation and loving these new Tildas at the moment:

I paper pieced Tildas scarf using Maja paper.

Magnolia Tilda with flags, coloured with distress inks with shabby blue frantage around edge
Whimsey postcard stamp
Magnolia doohickey flag
seam binding and string from stash

Our fantastic sponsor this fortnight is Crafty Ribbons 
with this great prize

Thanks for visiting me today, I'll be back tomorrow with my Marvelous Magnolia midway inspiration.

Deep Ocean DT - Something Sweet

Hi everyone, 
It's time to celebrate another new challenge over at
and this fortnight the theme is
'Something Sweet'
This instantly made me think of sweet treats to eat and the last time we visited a certain fast food restaurant we had chocolate muffins that came in these cute mini paper bags....needless to say I kept the bags thinking they would be fab to decorate and here is the end result....

Although the 'M' stands for the fast food restaurant, it also stands for Magnolia so instead of covering it I thought I would make a feature of it front and back.

Magnolia paper - Red Rose Ornament
Magnolia Doohickeys - Tilda lace die, swirl
Spellbinders beaded oval
Magnolia Tilda with big ice cream - coloured with distress inks, glossy accents on ice cream
WOC flowers
Prima resin frame
Pearls, cheesecloth, pom pom ribbon from stash

Our wonderful sponsor is the Ribbon Girl

with this fantastic prize:

Challenge I would like to enter: 
Tildas Town - Anything Goes

I really hope you can join us! Thanks for visiting my blog today, I'll be back tomorrow by scheduled post as I'll be on my hols in Holland by then..... yippee!
Have a lovely week
