Two for the price of One

Two cards today, because they are both for challenges and on a theme. Craftwork Cards have a great challenge on, you have until the 22nd January to enter with a card featuring their card candy. Here is my entry, as I'm part of the Design Team I'm not eligible for the prize, but I am eligible for the fun! The prize is a Card Candy Store, I know this is fabulous because I've got one. These little doodies are so useful, I use them most often a the centre for flowers. go have a look at their blog to see some of the great entries so far.

This next card also features card candy, but was made for the Allsorts Saturday challenge, this hasn't photographed that well. The embossed circles look much nicer IRL. It was sitting on my counter for a couple of days because something was missing, but then while I was making the above card it came to me. Silver card candy to look like rivets. Done (in true Gordon Ramsey style)!

Hi Kathy

A brilliant card.

I know what you mean - sometimes they can sit around for ages just waiting for the "finishing touch".

I love all the gorgeous backing papers.

Great use of Emma's sketch.

Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx

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.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

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.
