Yay! A scrapbook page

I made this page on Sunday, I just didn't get around to photographing it until this morning. I had a new washing machine delivered a couple of weeks ago but in order to get it into the garage in the right spot my brother and nephew came to move the old one. Actually my brother moved it and my nephew just gave him expert directions. I think he's going to end up working for a council somewhere! He claimed a couple of empty washing powder tubs and then did a bit of a forage in my craft room. He sat for ages with his Dad and between them they came up with this. It was great to see them discussing the whole process and making something together, usually his head is at a 45 degree and with his mouth open and a controller in his hands.
I used the instructions over at Sarah's cards, it was a 10 minute layout suggestion that really appealed to my busy days. I love it and will be saving this idea to use again.

On another note 'Project Top Secret' is done and sitting ready to transport to Craftwork Cards on Saturday morning. Yes I'm driving everything there, I just don't trust that it will travel very well with the Royal Mail!
The Big Idea Festival has started now so I'm hoping to keep up with everything and will post all my makes here for you. This is free and uses existing stash (if you want it to) so I'm sure you'll still be able to sign up if you want.

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

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.
