Magnolia Mini World Friends

Besides my internet not working for days, sorry I haven’t been around with other things, but I’ve been in another world!!! The Magnolia Mini World and I’ve been having so much fun!!! These are just so adorable and are so fun to use on many types of projects.

Our wonderful hostess Diana has chosen for the December Magnolia Highlites challenge to make some type of word frame or even a letter and decorate them with Magnolia Stamps, of course!!!  There are so many possibilities with this challenge, it was hard to decide on which one to do. I had a wood cut out of the word JOY that I had planned on using, but some of you might relate, I couldn’t find where I tucked it away!!!  I’m sure it will show up some day!!!

Now our Diana from Magnolia-licious is the distributor for the Minis here so you will need to keep watch on what she will be getting in. This is a sneak peek of what’s to come of just some of the Minis which will be available later.  But don’t hesitate on the many darling ones from the Merry Little Christmas 2010 collection that Diana has AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW!!!  Click HERE to go directly to them. These are going to sell out quickly!!!

I love the shapes that Magnolia has come up with for their dies. Diana has some great deals on these, so just click on the item and it will take you right there.

Colored images with Distress Inks and cut out the letters from a plaque I had out of chipboard and then added the Magnolia paper.  Decorated with some hardware, rhinestones, Stickles and white and Stardust gel pens.

Here are some closer looks at the images:

Thanks for stopping by and checking out these new minis that will be available soon!   Whether you have ordered the new Mini Merry Christmas collection or you use the regular sized beloved Tilda's and Edwin's, I hope you'll join the Magnolia-licious Design Team and create something for this challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites.   You know the generous Diana is offering a fabulous prize for one of the lucky entries too.

Enjoy every day!!!!

LOVE what you have come up with it, your coloring is STUNNING.
I placed my order for some of the minis already and am looking forward to getting them.
LOVE seeing your work.

Patti Jo, oooh you just blew me away with your framed project. I’m so glad you took separate close-up pictures of the mini Maggies because I couldn’t blow up the picture of entire frame big enough to see all the details. Fantabulous work! You must been having a ball colouring these minis.

Wow and wow again. This was well worth waiting for. A real winner.
What a lot of thought and effort you have put into this frame. I still need to keep looking at it as there is so much to see. Did you have to have a magnifying glass to do the tiny bird in the cage? Love Rufus. How sweet is he? Love how you used the Doo Hickeys with the flowers.
Love it all.
Hugs Maz

Patti Jo this is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. You are so clever, you have incorporated so many things "MAGNOLIA" it is definitely magnolia-licious. I was so glad to see you had done close up photos so people could see your amazing colouring. Your word frame is INCREDIBLE and haven't you made people wonder where did you get all those minis from (shhhh).
