Moving Round the Board

I had such fun yesterday on the Cybercrop, loads of techniques to use, two of them featured glimmer mists. Oh my God! what a mess I made. The projects were beautiful but the cleaning up took ages. Today I look like I have been stealing Willy Wonka's meal replacement bubble gum. Rememeber the girl who ate the bubble gum that tasted of food, she ended up swelling up and going purple. Well I'm going blue from the fingertips up! Here we are moving round the Monopoly board, the second project was Angel Islington taught by Angie . This classes technique was to hand cut frames, yes HAND CUT. I bought a cricut so that I didn't have to hand cut anymore, but entering into the spirit of the crop I did it and was so pleased with the results here is the page.

I have to run to Asda now to collect my photos for the classes I completed yesterday. They were fabulous projects and need some photos before they are uploaded to claim my points for the cars team. Beep! Beep! Come back tommorrow for the next page, it feels good to be scrapbooking again!

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.
