About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.


  1. Hi Nancy! This is absolutely gorgeous! I love it.

    Just got my computer back from the shop. I had to get off of Pinterest. Virus! I just don’t have luck with those websites! Hope you and yours are well. xxoo

  2. What a very intersting book. I have never seen anything like this. A great way to look back at fabrics. It looks lovely. I don’t sew, but on cold days like this I so enjoy playing with my Valentines and dreaming of the garden flowers that are soon to come! We sure need days like this!

  3. Your Parisian Fabric Collage Book is very Lacilicious and beautiful. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts…

    • Beautiful Nancy! Happy Sunday to you too!! Nice and sunny here in the 50’s!
      When we had our dogs and cats years ago- our black cat Blackjack used to sleep with our Great Dane Berta. They were best of friends, all lived long and happy lives! XO Linda

  4. This is such a precious book Nancy!


  5. Everything you make is exquisite! xxx


  6. Oh Miss Nancy this is a dream.
    So gorgeous lace and fabric.
    Awesome design.

  7. Thoroughly charming and heart tugging projects. I have a collection of lace nannies I am now inspired to use. Just lovely.

  8. This is the most beautful book Nancy-all those wonderful images and laces…mmmm

  9. I’m now following you on Networked Blogs and you’re my first post.
    I have such a hard time making myself find others blogs, read them and comment.
    This will make it easier:)

    What I want to say is that it is always so evident to me how much time you put into your pieces of art. You have such a wonderful gift.
    My gift? Getting from one end of my Crack House (studio) to the other without breaking my neck.

    Question: Under your “Follow Me” at the top of your blog, how did you get those itty bitty whatevers for like fb, pinterest, RSS, Twitter??

    Have a most fabulous day, Jan

  10. So very beautiful, Nancy…you have such a wonderful sense of how to put just the perfect elements together to create something stunning…I love your style, my friend!

    Wishing you the most wonderful day…


  11. Dear Nancy, your fabric book is FABULOUS in every way. The images and the laces are superb. Congratulations on your wonderful artwork.

  12. Dear Nancy,
    I just adore your French fabric book. So very beautiful.Stay warm and cozy and have a great week.

  13. Absolutely love this book, Nancy! Your gorgeous accents, especially the burlap, beautiful!

  14. I am so excited about your generous offer! And have signed up! Your creativity is so inspiring and I have been scrolling through the rest of your blog. With all the vintage trims I have collected (ok… I’m obsessed with them!), I am thrilled to find a way to incorporate them into some lovely pieces of work! Thanks bunches!!

  15. Hello Dear Nancy this is just a Parisian dream book.
    I love all of that eyelet lace and you have chosen some special images for this project too putting it all together so superbly.
    It is adorable and it has your special touch as usual!

    I am so thrilled that you loved your hearts Nancy and the fact that you can add them to your collection makes it special for me too.
    I think we must be in a bit of respite and recovery mode here at present after the fire trauma
    but I will certainly be rallying for your 14 Hearts projects which you have so very generously offered to us all.

    Thanks for everything and for your friendship too – that’s special!
    Hugs to you,

  16. What an adorable Parisian lacebook in your very unique and special style.
    I love all of the eyelet lace and those beautiful French girls!
    You are a continuing inspiration to us Nancy!

    I am so pleased that you love your hearts so very much and am honoured that you can add them to your collection of hearts too.

    We are in respite and recovery I think at present from the fire trauma but I will be rallying myself to be included in your 14 Hearts projects that you have so generously offered to us all.

    Thank you dear friend for that and for your special friendship of hearts,
    Warm hugs,

  17. thanks for stopping by my blog. love this book especially the pin gold pin.

  18. What a wonderfule little fabric book. Beautiful work from you yet again! Hope you’re having a great day Nancy.

  19. Nancy.
    I adore your sweet book. I’d like to participate in the party. Do you make your own creations and just share? I put the button on my blog. I get so many wonderful ideas every time I visit. The shadow box project you did a couple posts back is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. I picked up some really cool boxes at a flee market. I think they held drafting tools or instruments, they are thin & velvet lined. I thought they would hold a nice assemblage. Hope you have a great day!

  20. I always enjoy seeing your fabric books. They make me smile :)

  21. Hi Nancy,
    As always, your book is such a beautiful artwork. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog recently. Am slowly getting back into creating and blogging again.
    Hope this year is treating you and family with much kindness.

    Gorgeous fabric book Nancy. Great minds think alike! LOL

    Posting your link for your valentine event! FUN!!!!!
    Hugs Lynn

  23. Oh my, as usual you create such treasures my dear! I LOVE the lace and images, :)


  24. Oh Nancy – this is just gorgeou! I love how your images come out so clearly on the fabric. Do you print direct onto the fabric or use some transfer technique? Looking forward to your tutorials in February – wouldn’t miss them.

  25. Oh how pretty is that. I love all the colors and the laces! Just Stunning. Your making my wheels spin with ideas!

    Thanks for sharing!
    God bless….Brooke

  26. hi nancy,
    the drawers are the center section of a big cutting table i purchased at jo-anns several years ago. the other side has a door and a couple of shelves. i traded my cutting table with my mom and i think i got the better end of the deal. lots of storage and big cutting space.

  27. Your Parisian Fabric Book looks fantastic, Nancy! Love the images you’ve used!

    Have a lovely day!

  28. So beautiful! Hope you are having a lovely week. Tammy

  29. What a beauty dear Nancy, I love you used scripture stamps on all the pages, -it looks wonderfully old, and so perfect with the gorgeous old laces and fabrics!
    Hugs to you dear friend!

  30. The addition of text makes your images extra lovely … what a gorgeous creation…
    I am VERY excited about your upcoming Heart event…you are a doll!!!
    Stay warm!
    we finally got our first dusting of snow here in the Wash DC area with the promise of a little more tomorrow evening … baby it’s cold outside

  31. Breathtaking!! I love the frothy layers of lace mixed with the beautiful images and your wonderful details. Stay cozy sweet friend! xxoo Heidi

  32. So pretty….

  33. how amazing that you have the same laces that I have been collecting and saving to try my first fabric book. (I am on the other side of the world).
    Hopefully my attempt will look as good as your beautiful book – I will be one happy little duck if it does as yet I haven’t tried printing or transferring to fabric.
