One week later

It's a week since I last posted, that doesn't mean I haven't done anything, it means the light I need to photograph my efforts has been rubbish. Last weekend My friend Julia and I had a mini retreat in my kitchen. I love these weekends, we order a kit and then go searching for pages or challenges that catch our attention and away we go. This month we ordered the October kit from Sarah's Cards, it was yummy.We are both attending their retreat  in November so playing with this kit has made us doubly excited about the event.
I came across two peas in a bucket's free monthly workshops, I love free, so I've signed up, these will be perfect for our little get togethers. I also came across this page by Nichol Magouirk, I loved it. This is where we started with this lovely layout design and the gorgeous kit and I had just the right photo's for it. Here's my page
I just love it, you know when you make a page and just keep going back to look at it. It makes me smile. I liked the layout so much I made another one of my nephews. I was amazed how it looked with different papers, it's exactly the same layout. 
It had the desired effect, Robin is really happy with it because its got more than one photo on it, and I'm happy because I got to do more than stick the pictures onto a background paper. Job done!


I'm always amazed what scrappers and card makers create. They are lovely

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.
