Gorjuss Day!


Today is Gorjuss day.. SUGAR NELLIE  Gorjuss Day!! Yay!

As you can see from the Sugar Nellie blog.. [which looks all nice, new and jazzy with gorjuss-ness] they have managed to post out most of the pre-orders today.. and that with their No1 Sugar Slave Tracy from FUNKY KITS out of bounds!

Soooo.. we should be seeing alot of Gorjussness floating about soon *Ü*

I have been playing with the little cuties too.. and these are three tags that I wanted to label my baskets with their contents.



and right views 🙂tags02

The tags have been coloured with Copic pens, then stamped with Magnolia love letter and then a different shadow stamp each (Tulips are Hero Arts, Sun is unknown and flower is Laura Ashley)

I coloured the Gorjuss girls and cut them out, placed them on the tags and trimmed where needed.

The butterflies are totally covered in diamond glaze, you can’t really see it in the picture then they were 3D’d onto the flowers.

They were made for the baskets underneath my wall storage, and I think they look fab!

I’ve got a lot more ideas with these girls.. and can’t wait to see what you all come up with creating with them!


I am excited to tell you that I have become a SU! Momma!! yay!

I have signed up my first demo Sonia.. and I know she is going to do fabulously!

Julie has now become a Nanna [Oh, I just know she loves me saying that!..lol]

If you are interested in becoming a demo for Stampin Up! [you don’t have to do workshops, you could just join for the fab discounts!] then please contact me via EMAIL  and I’ll send you the details 🙂

And don’t forget you will receive 2 extra free sets of your choice if you join before Feb 28th. 


I wanted to give a big, huge thanks to all of you who send their thoughts, prayers and best wishes for my Mum’s recovery.. It means so very much!! Thank you!

The surgery was postponed until today, it took nearly 3 hours!

It went well.. She seems to be ok and now the recovery process begins!!

Again thanks for all your good wishes,

Have a fab evening,

Marlene xx
