A Cybercrop Project and Blog Candy

What about this for a new take on an advent calendar? Without chocolate I'm afraid. This was my favourite project but it took most of the day on Saturday to make. The whole thing was made from chipboard, including the frame. It took a few attempts to get it right but I'm very happy with the result.

Craftwork Cards is offering some blog candy, all you have to do is leave a comment on their blog saying what your favourite product is and why you can't live without it. The winning post will be drawn on Monday 23rd, the fabulous prize is a bundle of their fantastic new products. Believe me it will be well worth it. They are launching a new blog soon. it just has to go through its final testing. It will feature a Design Team (look out for a familiar face or two), new ideas, card challenges, new products and much more. We're all very excited to see it launched. Why not go over and become a follower, that way you'll be notified of any new posts.

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.
