A couple of cards

I had a great day on Saturday at the Papercraft Extravaganza in Harrogate, it all started with a breakfast workshop. I chose to do the Copics and Magnolia one, I was hoping to pick up some techniques. Unfortunately there was very little tuition but what was fantastic was the goody bag. The workshop was £11 but the goody bag included 7 Copics pens at a value of £1.99 each and a magnolia stamp, how good was that? I was thrilled, this is the card we made. I was absolutely shattered when I got back. I'm now counting the days to pay day but at least I've got plenty of purchases to occupy my time until then.

I've also made this card for one of our sales team that is leaving this week, I've used two Cricut cartridges to get the image. I welded all the letters and the car together using the Design Studio software, it's great and makes lining everything up so much easier.

Great cards Kathy, the leaving one is so original.

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.
