  2. It’s Heeeeerrreeee….. but is it a Trick?

    October 25, 2014 by Boo


    Scarily fabulous New Collection out Today

    Hey Folks,

    Who remembers that old scary movie Poltergeist?  I went to see it at the movies when it first came out and I don’t mind admitting I’ve never been able to enter the kitchen without a little trepidation since, especially if those dining chairs are not quite how I remember leaving them the night before. KWIM? Did you ever watch a scary movie that left a little residue fear in you for a long time after? Jaws was my first real fear factor movie. I’m not even kidding that I do not ever swim in the sea….. just in case….. and I’m 52 now hahahaha.

    I am soooooo not good with horror movies though and Poltergeist was one of those movies that really REALLY scared me. I’d love to know what your most frightening movie was. Let me know in the comments.

    Meanwhile, let me introduce you to something just as scary but this time, in a great way. My brand new collection ‘Howling Woman’ is now available at the Studio and believe me, it is jam packed to the hilt with gorgeous spookiness that will be perfect for any sort of Halloween look you might be after.  I really went to town, well, the woods, for this collection so I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.


    A Closer Look




    This collection really is filled to the witches brim with brews and potions and all manner of scary spices that you will wish Halloween lasted for more then one night. Even our unique Howling Woman is a hand painted piece of artwork that will help make your Halloween layouts really stand out amongst the crowd. Want something a little less frightening? We’ve added a gorgeous artsy witches head for you to dress up your pages with too.

    Some Inspiration from me




    We’ll be back next week with a ton of fantastic Blossoms Inspiration for you too

    Did you guess where the inspiration came for its title? I’ll bet not because unless you’re a die-hard Cure fan like me you would have missed the connection. I’m such a tease lol. I love the Cure and the Howling woman is from a Cure song called ‘The Walk’ (thats no joke considering my current habit of walking lol). If you’ve a mind to you can watch the video HERE. Robert actually wrote the song about his romance with wife Mary. They were 15 years old at the time. Yup, they are still married (darn it hehe).

  3. Is that a wolf at my door?

    October 24, 2014 by Boo


    What the Font Friday and some Howling Goodies

    Well folks,

    That dastardly dark and troublesome night is drawing ever closer. Tonight on the way home I’m sure I saw a shadow lurking in the trees and somewhere off in the distance a lone wolf (or it may have been a dog) howled at the night sky. I don’t mind admitting I was fairly spooked and while I’m not up to running just yet, a swift jog may well be on the cards sooner then planned. Good job I had my trusty red hood and cape with me as it was proper chilly out there tonight……

    How about some spooky fonts to get the spirit floating (hehe, i’m getting good at this)

    Coming on Friday


    Can you guess where the inspiration came for the title of this Halloween collection??

    Hey Folks,

    So today I spent a large part of it sorting through the last of those pesky packing boxes. Well, I say sorting through. I got as far as box one and got distracted as I found some of Jess’s old Lego stuff. One thing led to another and before I knew it the day was done and so was this…….


    Guess what I’ll be having my tea from today??? ;)


    So my WOW for you today is this….. Don’t open old packing boxes if you have other important stuff to do, like work


    That’s all for today folks

    Hope your day was productive.

    Until next time, take care

    In Store from Today

    Hey Folks,

    How are you all today?  First I must say a huge thank you to everyone who sent well wishes for both Jay and myself last week as we both tried to recover from nasty colds. We really appreciated your kind words and concern and I’m sure it’s why we both feel so much on the mend so Thank YOU.

    I am so happy to be able to share with you our latest new collection Dawn Walker. As the name implies this collection was indeed inspired by my walks. We’ve been so blessed to discover a whole world of wooded walks and gorgeous paths alongside old canals and rivers dating back to Cromwells time and there is no better time to enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of a walk then at Dawn.

    I hope you’ll enjoy using it to create and keep beautiful memories of your own.

  7. What the Font Friday and Super Deal

    October 17, 2014 by Boo


    What the Font Friday

    Hey Folks,

    I’ve been hibernating a while since coming down with a major cold. I blame Jay entirely for it. All that running around for his 50th Birthday Bash was hard work. Even I felt exhausted watching it all LOL…. Really though, we have both been under the weather lately. A result of the change in temperatures or something else we don’t know but it kinda took us by surprise and knocked us both for six. So…… while we are recovering, slowly but surely, I am taking things a little easier here too. I know you guys will understand.

    I did promise you some pics of the do but when I came to download them from my phone I was shocked to find I had taken hardly any. I must have been so busy hostessing I just forgot. Here’s a few anyway.

    Jay 50th

    Jay awaiting our guests. Hog Roast Chefs. Jays Birthday Cake.

    Jays Aunt and Mum. Jays Cousin, Brother and Cousins son. Jays bestie mate and Wife. And finally, Jay and his Uncle Mike.

    We had around 30 guests in all including my eldest son Danny with his wife and kids. Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously and the Hog Roast was a huge success. Danny said it was an EPIC party lol. Jay said it was the perfect way to end his year long 50th Birthday celebrations. I was just glad it all went so well and no one broke my treadmill…. hahahaha.

    and a special treat for today

    Just click the image to grab it


    Hey Boo,

    What day is it today?

    Why it’s………




    October 14 celebrates that wonderful sweet dish that concludes a meal, it is National Dessert Day.

    Desserts can be from a list of many things including cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, candy, fruit and etc..

    Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex souffles and multi-layered cakes.  The available ingredients affect the range of desserts that can be made in each region.  The very first desserts required minimal effort or preparation since ancient cultures were more focused on the nutrition in foods in order to survive.  Now, in modern day culture, there are many more options available in desserts.  Ice Cream went from a shaved ice substance with an added flavouring to the dairy based, sweet treat, that today’s children crave.

    Enjoy one of the following “tried and true” dessert recipes and have a Happy National Dessert Day!








    Within our research, we were unable to find the creator of National Dessert Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.

    as found HERE

    That’s all for today folks

    We’ll be back tomorrow with a catch up of Jay’s 50th in Boo’s WOW Wednesday

    Meanwhile don’t forget to check out OSB 23 while it’s still at its discount price HERE


    and remember to grab that awesome goodie while it’s available HERE

    See ya tomorrow

    I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful craft by Lia Griffith at Handcraft for Life. So much so that it almost became an obsession. Not only did I spend hours upon hours trying to perfect my skill at creating these adorable paper flowers with some serious disasters along the way, lol. I also found myself compelled to create a new collection based on them which I absolutely loved doing.

    First, lets take a look at Lias fantastic tutorial.

    You can read more about it HERE



    I didn’t have any metallic paper myself so I printed out my own Signature papers from the new collection. Here was my little effort lol

  10. What the Font and Store Update

    October 10, 2014 by Boo


    Oh dear!

    Digital Scrapbooking Server has CRASHED

    Yes folks,

    I’m afraid it’s true. The gremlins got the better of the Studio server and brought it down in one mighty swoop. We are working very hard to get it back up and running for you…..


    Oooopppppsssss eeerrrrr….. wrong image


    and we expect to have it fixed at some point today


    or maybe later???


    as soon as our fabulous admin team work out what’s wrong


    Unfortunately this does mean that our planned release for this weekend may be delayed a tad. Don’t worry, as soon as things are back to rights we will let you know so you can go grab your fab new Booland Collection.

    Sneaky Peek

    And because I am a bit of a tease ( I know, it’s a serious fault I need to address) here is a little sneaky peek at what you have to look forward to.



    Let’s enjoy some fab FONTS and since we are having a big Birthday Bash tomorrow I thought these would fit the bill perfectly….


    Here are the links

    1. Janda Stylish Script \\ 2. Coneria Script  \\ 3. Chapaza \\ 4. Bebas Neue \\ 5. Kunstler \\ 6. FT Rosecube \\ 7. Little Lord Fontleroy \\ 8.Grand Hotel \\  9. Qumpelllka 

    If you’re not sure how to download them to your computer, here is a good tutorial on installing fonts for Windows + Macs! If you use any of these, send me a picture! I’d love to see them in your party decor (or stationery…around-the-house projects…your party layouts…the possibilities are endless!) :)

    That’s all for today folks

    Wish us luck getting the Studio server fixed soon



    and we’ll see you all real soon
