Scrapology February Challenge

This month's challenge over on the Scrapology blog is one using lots of borders and punches. I have loads of borders lying around. I just either don't know what to do with them or don't want to use them. Enough of that, these things are bought to be used, this project was perfect to make me use some of them up. I had previously scrapped this photo but wasn't really happy with the page, it was just too pink. I still wanted to go with pink but really needed to tone it down. This was the sketch
and here is the page I made, I've got to say I'm so much happier with it and love the colours. Now I want to buy more borders, I really enjoyed this challenge.

Ooh it's lovely - I liked your original take on it - but this one is definitely my favourite of the two - I was also challenged by this sketch but once I'd 'got it' it was fun and quite easy to do - so much so I used it more than once. I didn't have a collection of borders however, but was quite happy to generate my own and was amazed how different my style looked as a result! Hope you're having a great day!

Hiya Kathy, what an absolutely beautiful page, such pretty border stickers and they match so well with your photo. The roses and journaling patch finish it off perfectly. Thank you for playing along with us, good luck.
warmest wishes

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.
