Sweet lollipop (flowers that is)

I thought I would try a new-to-me challenge site this month - Candy Shoppe Designs. Why? Because they're super funky! And the prize is a kit from The Magpie Club, and you know how I'm loving them (see the post below :-)

So all you had to do for this challenge is use lollipop flowers on your creation. Easy peasy right? Here's what I did:

I cracked open some ye olde Sassafras Lass and some water-colours and went to town! Cut a bizzillion circles to make into bright colourful lollipop flowers and relied on some favourites like typewritten journalling and washi tape. I just had fun :-)

I'm still experimenting with my new sewing machine, and I haven't got everything right yet, so hence, it sometimes skips a beat. But I think I've got that problem figured out now.

Ok - I better go now. The Studio Calico reveal is about to happen any moment and I'm now a subscriber. Yay! :-)


  1. So bright and fun - love it!!
    My fav bits:
    The random hole punching
    the water colours
    the little bird and of course,
    the lollipop flowers!!!

  2. Oh my word! What a happy page! :) I actually love it when my sewing machine does those skipped stitches every now & then! It makes me remember to applaud the imperfection... (so not natural for me generally....)
    the little beads in the birds wake are a sweet touch too- and those lollipops are yummy!!!

  3. oh this is so magical, so cheery and happy! Love it lots. LOVE the lollipop flowers. and oh my that birdy trail!

  4. So very much fun and bright and colorful! Those lollipop flowers are amazing, and I can see how you had to cut out a ton of them! Well worth the effort in my opinion though, they add so very much to this design!
    I also went back and edited my post so thank you for reminding me! I hope it was ok to link back to your fabulous creation? (If not, please let me know?) Sorry that I missed it!

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous!!
