Magnolia-licious the Design Team for 2019




Good morning my dears, I am so thrilled to be among the 
New and returning Design Team for


My journey with Magnolia-licious started in January 2013 
when the lovely Miss Diana Crick (previous owner)
invited me join the then amazing Design Team. This had been a
dream come true for me and I jumped at the chance to work
with some very very talented ladies.

Here is my 1st ever DT card for Magnolia-licious Feb challenge 2013



Here is the latest card for Magnolia-licious Jan 2019


I thought the Journey had ended when Miss Diana decided to retire
and close the business, but there was a Knight in shining armour called
Shawn Mills who came to the rescue and bought the store in 2016 which was to become
a family run affair.  Miss Candy Reid Mills (Shawn's Mum) asked 4 of us
to stay on as DT members.  After a few months I was asked If I would like to take the
DT coordinator position.   I was thrilled to say Yes and stayed
with Shawn until 2018, I took a break from crafting  for a while but was 
over the moon when Shawn asked me if I was ready to come back in August last year. 

So Continues the Journey!!!!

There is a fabulous post over at Magnolia-licious introducing the new
Design Team and I must say these girls are going to blow your socks off
with their Talent and Amazing creations.  I am so so thrilled to be part of
this journey with the Mills Family!!!

Good morning my dear friends,  It's Suzi Mac here and I would like  to share 
my Inspirational DT card using our products available over at

which comprises 3 sweet Tildas - Creating Tilda - Paperish Tilda and Painting Tilda
along with 2 sweet Sentiments - a large frame border stamp - paint brush stamp - 
Palette stamp, pencil stamp and heart needles stamp.

I have used Painting Tilda and coloured her with Promarkers and Derwent soft pencils.



I've also incorporated some Foamiran Flowers using white foamiran I used my
oil based pastels to add the pink tint to them.  The Die used to cut
the flowers and leaves out is from Whimsy and is the Peony die set.

these are called Vintage Summer basics and are still available in the store.
