April remembered

I have finished my April pages for the Document 2010 project, as time goes on I'm getting more excited about this album. Who knows I may soon be keeping up with everybody else! I have almost completed May as well, I just need to pick up some more photos. Page four of April, once again was scrap lifted from this post on Shimelle Laine's blog. I use this top tip so often now. The photos on the page are also from t'internet. I googled the building I work in as its a listed building and picked two of my favourite pictures. I also used this weeks sketch over on Pencil Lines for page 1. I was trying to make sure the pages were all different but at the same time trying to keep a similarity throught the album. I'm using the same 'tattered square' on one page each month, I'm alkso using a pae from my calendar and the papers all have the month printed on them. Hopefully this will all work. Scroll to the bottom of my blog to see all of the pages so far in this project.

What lovely pages. I'm following this project too, and I agree - it's shaping up to be a fabulous album, and I'm sure we'll all look back at them with pleasure. It's the everyday details that we so often overlook, which are recorded here now.

I look forward to seeing your pages over the next few months.

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.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
