Craft room unveiling

Here it is at last, my craft room is 99% finished. The door needs rehanging, the radiator fitting and the last piece of beading for the floor under my desk needs nailing in. I am so pleased with it and since Friday when it became functional I have hardly left it. I was going to do some housework today before I go back to work tomorrow and because I haven't been using the rest of the house it only took me half an hour to run the hoover round and shift the dust about. I'm going to my scrapbooking class at the Craft Box tonight but I don't want to leave my room, I always enjoy these classes as it's a good crowd.


How wonderful to have such a fantastic craft room, very tidy and a place for everything. I converted a bedroom last summer and it's wonderful just to leave your current project out and close the door. Heaven. Good luck with trying to keep it tidy, it only lasts a short while.

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.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

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.
