Magnolia- licious Closing out Sale

Today I am sharing with you some news regarding the store, it is a sad news but will turn into good news as well. After a deep thinking and long hesitation, I have finally decided with sadness to close down Magnolia-licious. I have to put my family first as well as my other business which is my major job.
It has been a wonderful journey, where I met many crafters who became friends and close friends. I learned all about the crafting and card making which I also discovered that I do like crafting and colouring which I intend to continue crafting when time allows and promise to share with you all when I can.
However, an unexpected event Swedish House Crafts from UK has jumped in the right time and decided to keep it open in North America. The store is run by Suha Hazboun since 2016 in UK and has been growing internationally since. I have known her for more than 2 years now. I can say, from experience, working with her is a pleasure. She’s very professional and her store is known for delivering a great customer service. You will be in safe hands!
Suha will be your major contact but the store will be run by someone else located in USA. Suha has been planning to open in the US for a while and now looking for a Store Manager within USA. Apply via her website if you are interested. This is your chance to run Magnolia-licious in USA for Suha once she takes over. She and I are in the arrangement of the transition process but will keep you updated.
I will be having a major sale to move inventory that I have in the store. Everything will be on sale for 50% off. This sale will run until the end of July or until inventory is gone! I hope you can take advantage of this opportunity. The coupon code to use will be called BIGDEALS
I would like to personally thank all of you and your amazing commitment to the store. Of course, Suha suggested and I take her suggestion into consideration. All European customers who want to grab a bargain, please choose “Check Money Order” at checkout. This option will reserve your order but you do not pay me until I send you a separate invoice. Shipping will be a flat rate $7 to your home via Suha. The shipping date will between 1 and 10 August with no delay. I will pack all orders and ship to Suha and she will send your orders within 1-3 working days depending on the size of your pack. If you are in a hurry, just complete your order and I will ship you as soon as possible.
In regard to DooHickey Kits and Vintage Boxes not shipped yet. These will be sent out as soon as I get them. If Suha takes over prior to them being shipped, she will make sure everyone receives the kits. Cheers, Shawn
I would like to once again thank all of you for supporting the store. It has been a great experience.

Cheers, Shawn

This is your chance to get some great deals! Don't miss out! I will do my best to get all the packages out over the coming weeks depending on the volume of orders. The sale will run for the month of July or until inventory is sold out!

Triple Gift box with sweet Rose Tilda !!

If you are looking for our Current challenge click HERE
Good morning my dear friends,  I'm here to share my inspirational 
project with you for 

It's Suzi here and I've made a cute gift box courtesy of a love lady I follow
on Youtube who shares her tutorials freely and with love.

I inked up sweet Rose Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection 2019

She has been coloured with Distress re-inkers and
I cut her down just using her face and the rose so I could add her
to the belly band closure for the gift box. 

My papers are from and are House of Roses 
and they are one of my all time favourites from Lemoncraft.

The gift box opens to reveal 3 sections to hold whatever you choose to put into them
In my case I made some handmade embellishments for the pockets. The picture below
shows you my makes. I die cut some hearts and decorated them, I die cut some
pretty bows and flowers and of course they all co-ordinate with each other.

Below shows you how the box in more detail, all you need to do is add your
gifts, put the belly band back on to keep it closed and hey presto you have
a fabulous creation to gift to someone special in your life.

I do hope you will pop over and join us this month for the chance
to win a $20.00 gift certificate to use in the Magnolia-licious Store.

The theme is "Lace or Bling"

In the meantime thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope
you enjoyed your stay and do please come back and see us soon.

Selfie Tilda

Good day!!  I'm super excited to be sharing this little beauty today!! 

Here is Selfie Tilda from the Hugs and Kisses collection, who I've framed in a chipboard piece from Laserowe Love "Oval Floral Frames" and they come in a set of 2.  With this chipboard, I added Diamond stickles over the whole frame.  You should see it in real life.  It's soooo sparkly and pretty!!  

Since Tilda is holding a phone, I thought I would try to make a cell phone look like it's texting with someone.  I'm still on the fence about how it turned out but the idea was fun.  LOL!!

I've used some shabby seam binding again in 2 places, added some pins and OH!!  The stitched heart chipboard covered with stickles is also from Laserowe Love.  I must say I think this might be one of my recent favorites!

Well thanks so much for stopping by
and have a great week!!

Hey There!!

Good day!!!  This week I've decided to pair up a Polkadoodles image with these gorgeous LemonCraft papers "Grow Old With Me".  They are very vintage feeling and just stunning!!!   In the lower left you can see a super cute Laserowe Love chipboard fence, which I've colored brown with my copics and added a few flowers.  There is also a yellow pearl headed berry there as well as 2 more in my main bouquet.

I colored the image "Ruby - Hey There" with my Prismacolor's and listed the combo's below.  Not a color combination I use often so it was fun to play!

I punched 2 layers of this amazing Magnolia umbrella doohickey and layered a couple of Laserowe Love butterflies.  I colored both of the with my copics but stickled the top peach colored one and popped on a pearl center.  Again I've used a seam binding bow, which I can't seem to get enough of.  The store has quite a selection of colors so there's something for everyone!

Don't forget about our challenge this month of BLING or LACE!
I hope you can join us!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!
