Scrapping Angels

I can't believe that a week ago I was at the Scrapping Angels retreat at Wyboston Lakes. I was there as a day delegate and although it was a long day I loved it, I really liked all of the projects I made and I'll post them here over the next few days. One of the classes was to make a mini album out of an old book, this was a long class but we used the gorgeous papers from Prima. Lots of bling and flowers were added after we had stitched the pages together. This class was taught by Tracie Hudson, I have no idea where she gets her inspiration from but she definitely passed it on to me by the bucket load. I was lucky enough to get a book with a turquoise colour which suited the project perfectly, when I opened it up there were pictures inside the front and back covers so I adapted it a little bit to keep the pictures in. Here is the book we made, I can't begin to tell you how beautiful it is in real life.

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.
