Scrapbooking Mad

I've no idea what's got into me but I've been on a bit of a scrapbooking frenzy recently. It's maybe all the therapy I need at the moment to balance out the trauma of the leak. This page was inspired by sketch 118 on Pencil Lines. I love this website and have done a few pages inspired by the page maps. This was taken from a boat that we took to view Santorini from the sea. I used some chipboard flourishes that were painted with Adirondack Sailboat Dabber paint then edged with the lettuce colour and finally lightly brushed with white. I then used clear ultra thick embossing powder to add the shine.So far I've painted the bedroom a lovely soft apple colour, I swear the paint smells of apples. Everybody laughs when I say that but I swear it does.

I'm waiting for the electrician to have a look at adding all the extra sockets I need and Allied Carpets are coming to measure up on Saturday. Things are moving along it seems like ages since it happened although it is only 10 days. It will be well worth the wait I'm sure.

Here's another page this one is sketch number 116, it is one of my favourite pictures of me as a bride, I always laugh at the clothes airer behind me and considered photoshopping it out, but I decided to leave it in because it makes me laugh. Although I'm no longer married this was a perfect day so I still like to remember it.

I used Laura Ashley papers, stamped some flourishes and added a Sizzix flourish and sizzix letters for the title, then finished off with white opal liquid pearls.

More pages to follow.

Love these pages Kathy - you know how I love green and blues together and the liquid pearls look like the real thing, absolutely perfect.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
