Mini Me Class

I had a day off work yesterday, a bit embarrasing when I've only been back for three weeks. I had the worst cold over the weekend, I coughed that much I pulled a muscle in my stomach. Not too good eight weeks after abdominal surgery. A few Brufen and some bed rest I'm a lot better to day and back to work I go. Last night when I'd started to pick up I made a page based on Sarah's Cards mini me class. I got the sewing machine out and stitched on a layout. I always admire machine stitching on cards and layouts but it always seemed such a faff to get the machine out. I had some repairs to do on some clothes, so killed two birds with one stone. Sarah's Cards do the most fabulous, value for money scrapbook kits and I look forward to receiving mine each month.
I'm catching up with the scrapbook pages for my brother and his boys. I've been tackling the job from both ends, scrapping recent pages as he gives me the photos and working on the older ones in between and when I'm inspired. The boys are pretty much done it's my brother that needs pages now. Then I can do mine.

Looks fab Kathy, glad it gave you something to do on your day off! I agree with you about machine stitching, I am newly converted and yes it is a bit of a faff but sooooo worth it :)

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.
