Sarah's Cards Sketch Challenge

The trimmings are all down, OMG what a mess that made, so I've cleaned it all up and can settle into making more cards and catching up with the soaps. Why I didn't discover this sooner I don't know, for the last 6 months I have had a subscription to Sarah's Cards monthly scrapbook kits. They are the most fabulous kits and always chock full of lovely papers and embellies. I love it when that pizza box arrives on my desk every month. Over the Christmas period I found their blog and discovered their monthly sketch challenge. This is my entry for the December challenge. I'm very happy that all of the Christmas photos for this year have been scrapped, only three days into the new year as well. I got the kids to write their wish list on the page for their journaling, so that we can save their writing. I have no idea where the paper came from, it was discovered in my recent clear out, but I thought it was perfect with Santa sitting in the corner with a wish list.

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

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.
