Fruit Salad Collection .... another blog hop from us DT Members

Fruit Salad Collection Blog Hop

Hello Magnolia Lovers!

A very welcome to our new Magnolia Design Team Blog Hop. The design team is proud to present you the beautiful stamps from the latest Fruit Salad Collection.

This blog hop is sponsored by Magnolia Rubber Stamps Sweden  and of course you have the chance to win one gorgeous price from Magnolia Rubber Stamps on every single blog you leave a comment!!! So be sure to hop on every blog and leave some love!

The blog hop runs until 23. April!! The DT will announce the winners on 24. April in the evening on their blogs.
And now let’s start the fun blog hop!!! If you came from Debbie you’re on the right track! If you just happened on my blog, please from here CLICK HERE   to start at the beginning.

It was great fun creating this card for a friend of colleague who is leaving my team tomorrow.

I have used this stamp from the wonderful collection and coloured her with distress inks - Dusty Concord of course :)

I have used another stamp from Magnolia as a base for this gorgeous girl. I have used a blackboard sort of note on top to write my friend's name on it

Heart tag die is also from Magnolia and I have used purple ribbon to give it more dimension.

Can you spot the leaves in this picture? They are something I formed from extra light clay which is easy to use if you have proper moulds for it. And to finish this project off, I have used the glass beads to give it that extra look.

Hope you like my project xxx


Now it’s time to hop over to my very inspiring DT friend Camilla S  ! The blog Hop runs until 23. April!

Winding your way down on Baker Street

Hi everybody hope you had a good start to your weekend with lots of sunshine....can't wait for Summer to return and for my travels to start!

London was one of the first places I travelled to so it's a place I love.

Today I have used a Scrapiniec frame for my project, made of out laser cut wood They have different items which are absolutely adorable and enhance your project to perfection.

I have also used the Magnolia Little Collection 2013 rubber stamps which worked so well with my theme. They have been coloured in with prisma pencils, copics and also distress ink for the background.

With regard to the dies I have used the Magnolia doohickey dies from Volume 18 - absolute cuteness!

I have used Maja Design - Coffee in the Arbour for this frame. Even those small signs 'Take a Break' and ' Join me for a Coffee' are from that collection.

I have used the papers on the background of the frame as well.

I thought since we're in London, Baker Street cannot be left out.

Hope you like today's project and I wish you all a nice week ahead

Love, Claire xxx

Magnolia Blog Hop - the SunBeam Collection

Hi everyone, and a big welcome to the

CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at

Erika's blog.


And if you want to hop a bit here and there,

here is the whole blog hop list:


For my first blog hop I have done a shabby chic shadow box which also lights up.

I have used Tilda with Little Bunny, Tilda with Little Chickens, surrounded by the cutest bunnies, hedgehogs, chicks, bumblebees and butterflies.

 Image has been coloured with distress inks and I have added in lots of flowers plus the chandelier garland from Magnolia which I absolutely love here's a link if you need to buy some Magnolia Pink Gardland


The dies are also by Magnolia - for this project I used the Old Swedish Lace border from the Bon Voyage collection and the  Lovely Fence from the Cozy Family Autumn collection both from 2010.

Papers are also by Magnolia, named Sweet Rainbow which go very well with this collection since there is a matching bumblebee

 The box is a wooden one which I have distressed with chalk paint and wooden butterflies are what I have had in my stash for quite sometime.

Hope my project inspires some of you to create something similar!



Now it is time to hop over to my DT friend Maria Irene !


The Blog Hop will end this Sunday, March the 18th.

And remember you will have a chance to

win a secret prize from Magnolia

Happy Women's Day and Tilda from the Sunbeam Collection

Hi everyone hope you're having a fantastic day wherever you are. I am currently stuck at home with a broken foot and a wobbly right one. Thank God I can work from home as otherwise I'd go nuts in here.

Wanted to wish you all a Happy Women's Day and hope you're in a better able condition than I am haha.

So here is Tilda with Foxy for you from the Magnolia SunBeam Collection. Something I did last week as at the moment am not able to reach my craft room.

I have coloured it with Distress Inks on Langton Paper.

The sentiments are also from the same Magnolia collection. The signage die is from Magnolia as well. Love my dies.

Paper is from Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics. I just love this paper. Their collections are to die for. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Butterfly and feather dies are also from Magnolia. A doiley is always used on my projects and lace and ribbon too :)

I am participating with this card in the Maja Design March Mood Board competition ending 22nd March.

Fingers crossed

Lots of love, Claire
