Christmas cards

A couple of Christmas Cards from leftovers today, recently I made a few projects for Craftwork Cards, it gave me such a buzz to see them on their stand at the Extravaganza in Harrogate last weekend. I can't post photos because in my excitement to get them to Sue I forgot to take any. I had quite a few bits of odds and sods laying around that I didn't have the heart to throw away. I've used a few of the Joy papers up on this card, everything is from Craftwork Cards except the Sugar Nellie stamp, unfortunately the photo doesn't show the lovely shimmer on the papers, right lets attack the rest of the bits.
Here's another one I made with some scraps from the other paper collection, Candy Cane. The stamp is a Magnolia that I got as part of my goody bag from the breakfast workshop I did at the Harrogate show.

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.
