Final Installment - for now

There was no blogging this weekend, it would have been rude with all that sun to sit inside and just watch it out of the window. I spent so much time chopping down 'dead' things, all killed of by the awful winter. It wasn't a bad thing as this year I had planned to try and thin things out a bit. I do a bit of crafting but its a big project inspired by the lovely wedding album I made at Scrapstars last weekend. It involves the lovely Tres Chic project kit for this month. It really is beautiful. Unfortunately I have to halt the flow becasue for thew next two weeks I'm working in London. Don't you just hate that!
Going back to Scrapstars, Caroline has started a Scrapstars blog so if you are free in September and want to make gorgeous projects like this, this and this go over here to book yourself a place and then go here to become a follower. Oh and if that's not enough keeping up to date there's a facebook thread (is that the right thing? I'm not a facebooker). If you are going think about a name badge, here is the one I made for last weekend, I love it so much I'll use this again. I just want to think of a way to get it to stand on its own.
This will be continued in September....

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.
