Cybercrop And Allsorts Challenges

It's off and running the Cybercrop over on the Studio Challenges Blog began at 8am. I'm loving the sketches so far, but that's always my favourite way of getting started with a page. It takes me longer to sort out the papers then a couple of hours to make the page, its almost a full time job! This is one of the great things about this crop I've got until the 4th September to upload everything, perfect! I can take my time and get the housework done as well.. The 12 o'clock challenge was to make a card using one of the Cosmo Cricket lines of paper, I've used the Cogsmo range. I've also made a little gift card 3X3 for the challenge over on the allsorts challenge blog. Their challenge is to make a 3x3 miniature, so while I had the papers out for the Cybercrop I made a matching gift tag.
Here is the tag for allsorts.
and here is the card for the Cybercrop. Ellephantastic also have a challenge for male projects, right up my street as I have so many male cards to  make for work so I'm entering my card into that challenge.
 Also go over to Anna's blog she's celebrating 200 sketches on Pencil lines with a great giveaway. I'd love a copy of this book.

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies
Florist wiresflorist paper tapepaper flowers - they need to have a 'tail' on them, I used these card stock to make leaveseither a leaf punch or die to cut leaves, I used these distress ink Cut as many leaves as you think you will need and ink …


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.
