New Magenta Products!!

Magenta has a new release!! They always make the most fun chipboard shapes, shapes you don't see elsewhere! Been to Paris lately, or how about New York! Yep they have AWESOME chipboard sets in those themes and more! You really have to check out their new catalogue! And if you can't find these products at your local store, ask them to get it in!

Click HERE to go see the new catalogue. Once you are there, just click on the blue title and you can download the catalogue. Let me know what you think too!

My favourite paper is that grey sheet; Peace. It is beautiful on both sides, but that grey is awesome!! I used it on a Paris layout and on a snow layout! Grey is one of my FAV colours right now and it can be hard to find beautiful grey pattern papers. Well this one is awesome!

Here are 2 of my layouts so far: (both using that grey paper, Peace)

See!! isn't it great! Goes so well with my son's snow suite. Imagine that grey paper on a card with yellow!!! oh I need to make a card now! lol
Below you can see that same grey paper, and 2 other new papers; the purple and pink; Tranquility and Hope. They are so beautiful! And the chipboard shapes I was talking about. Both Eiffel Tower shapes and the word Paris came on the sheet. The little alphabet I used for 'Dreaming of' is Magenta and so are the flower shapes. Magenta has so many great chipboard shapes, you really do need to check them out! The little letters are great, I just use felts to colour them to any colour I need!

The Paris photos I found from a free site, there was no credit to who took the photos, please let me know if it was you so I may give you credit for your beautiful photos.

enjoy your Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

Sewing Paper

Did some serious sewing on this layout. My sewing machine sees more paper than cloth, lol. I mainly used Echo Park on this. LOVE this line, okay I love all their lines!!! lol
I did this a few days ago, actually haven't done anything scrappy since this. Been playing lego with the boys. I resorted it all by colour and now we are rebuilding some of the sets they have. Mostly they have Star Wars sets. And Mega Blocks pirates sets. There are a few creator sets mixed in there too, like city streets, vehicles and I think a space set too. My boys are big collectors of lego and my hubby built a great place for them to play - and me too. lol
Rainy yucky day here, perfect for lego building.
Enjoy your day!

Socker Boppers

Here is a double page layout I did using Basic Grey mainly.

This was Danny's 8th birthday party. Instead of giving out goodie bags, we found these and gave them out instead. The kids loved them! Even Granny got in on the fun. My kids still have theirs and every now and then they bring them out to play again. Good fun and you really can't get hurt. Well I am sure you can, but so far nothing serious has happened. lol

I am happy to report Zuki is back to normal, her foot has healed really well and she is not chewing on it at all. The cone is off, came off after 3 days, and I think she is very happy! lol
Hubby signed her up for a training class. So far she and he have gone to one. He came home with some great ideas for us to work on with her and I just got an email with some homework. Some of the ideas I really like and can see working. I really look forward to a dog that listens well, plays fetch and loves camping/water play! Right now she is still a puppy, but learning quite well.

Tonight is my Mother's Day Father's Day class. Here is what we are making:

I am looking forward to it, shall be fun!
Have a great Tuesday!
Hope the sun is shining where you are!
