Oh my heart

We’ve all been waiting with anticipation and the latest collection ‘Oh my heart’ by Paige Taylor Evans has just been previewed over on the Pink Paislee blog.

Personally I think it’s my favourite so far… it’s certainly made my heart say ‘oh my!’

Look at these totally adorable heart shaped charms – why is it that something so simple can literally melt my heart?

Even better, this is the collection that Paige will be using when she comes back to the UK to teach in March for Birds of a Feather! Lush, lush, lush!

Full of total cuteness in Paige’s signature style, I’m still in awe of the papers… especially the multi book cover one – can’t wait to find out its name!

And what about the ephemera?

Totally down my street, I simply love random – why shouldn’t you mix books, socks and the odd watch here and there?

Talking of random, look at the John Lennon glasses on the thickets sheet

I spy a birdie!

And I spy another birdie on the puffy stickers sheet!

I’m not normally a fan of puffy stickers as I tend to think the printed colours never quite match. But by the looks of these sneaks, the colours match spot on!

I’m intrigued to see the stickers from the stickers book for real…

Are they stripy or are they kraft coloured?

One thing is for certain – we aren’t going to have to wait much longer to see layout upon layout appear from the extremely talented Paige!

And even better, it only just over 50 days until Paige is here in person with this stunning collection ‘Oh my heart’.

Don’t delay in making your mind up – I think there is literally less than a handful of spaces left now on either day.

Why not take a look at what people thought of her workshop last November if you needed any more convincing!

See you in March!



And she’s back!

Whose back?

Paige Taylor Evans of course!


We were thrilled to hear that Paige had had such an amazing weekend with Birds of a Feather that she wanted to return – and better still before she returns to the US next year!

So as if by magic, we’ve only gone and done it again!


Paige is coming to The Village Hotel in Walsall, which is literally at junction 10 of the M6 to teach four amazing classes using her brand new, hot off the press collection, which is being launched at CHA in January.


It’s so new we aren’t even allowed a sneak preview, but I’m sure it will be as amazing as ‘Take Me Away’ and ‘Fancy Free’..

Sounds like fun?

What could be better than a day of crafting, laughter and ‘you’ time?

So if you want to be footloose and ‘fancy free’ and ‘taken away from it all’ then why not book onto our amazing workshop?

Spaces are definitely limited – we only went live last night and we’ve been inundated with bookings so far, so if it does sound ‘right up your street’ don’t delay in reserving your place – and if your still unsure whether to book or not, why not check out some of the comments that we received from our November ’16 workshop?

After all, birds of a feather flock together…

This time last week….

Time flies when you’re having fun and we certainly had a lot of that this time last weekend…

We can’t believe that it’s seven days ago that Birds of a Feather were in the throws of their second workshop over at Ansty Hall, with four stunning classes taught by the international designer Paige Taylor Evans.

Using her latest collection ‘Take me Away’ for Pink Paislee, Paige didn’t disappoint with her fabulous layouts, featuring her signature style!

Her first layout was ‘Too cute’


Using an adorable floral cut file, I think most of us had a ‘eureka’ moment when a simple technique was used to back the patterned papers to the cut file! If you’re not in the know, then you’ll have to wait until next time to discover what it is!

‘Awesome’ – need I say more was simply that!


Now I’m certainly one for having used many a patterned manufacturers strip, but seriously… this stunning ampersand is literally decorated with 20 different selvages!

Who would have thought of that?

Paige has the most beautiful handwriting – when we mentioned this, she replied that her husband Chris has said that her handwriting has changed three times since he’s been married to her! You can’t deny – she’s a scrapbooker through and through!

I ‘LOVE THIS’ too!


Big titles are so in at the moment, and those that are symmetrical in the number of their letters seem to aesthetically work so much better!

Cute huh? It’s so effective…

All too soon, it was time for Paige to teach the final layout of the weekend…

‘Sweet Life’ is the epitome of fancy cutting!


This class involved some serious cutting! Not for the faint hearted, it involved three fussy cut flowers and blooms from three separate papers! I’d have been having minor palpitations – not because of the detailed fussy cutting, but because of the fact that you had to cut into three entirely different papers!

Another stunning layout to finish off the most memorable of weekends!

To say we had a great time simply doesn’t do the weekend justice! IT WAS AMAZING and judging by the comments, it’s a sentiment that you all share too…

So on behalf of Birds of a Feather…
