Back to Scrap

I've had this double page layout, sitting around for a week. Roll on the lighter days so that I can photograph and upload my pages a bit quicker. I can get the cards but the pages need the light. Over on two peas in a bucket, they are running four free monthly classes, each one focusing on a different subject. Jen Gallacher is encouraging us to 'stretch the sketch'. Each month a new sketch is published and we are encouraged to us it a the inspiration for our page. This is the sketch for February

 Here is my page, I didn't change the sketch too much, I actually liked it the way it was. 
I am really enjoying making double page layouts at the moment, there are some really great sketches out there and you all know I love my sketches for scrapbooking.
I used the June 2009 kit from Sarah's Cards, its embarrassing how many of these beautiful kits I have but am not using. Go here to see the kits that are for sale and some are on sale. I have realised how many papers are just not getting used, this year I am trying not to buy any new papers, but if I do it will be a kit and once the kit is started, I will use it until everything is gone. Watch out for more of the Linnie Bell from Pebbles collection coming to a blog near you soon.

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.
