Project 12 - June

I'm just completing this page in the nick of time, actually its been finished a week I just haven't got around to posting it. The June sketch for Project 12 over on Scrapbook and Cards Today looked like this
I love these sketches and some of them I've used a couple of time, I know I am going to use all of them a number of times. They are helping me work my way through the holiday photos I have accumulated over the last 20 years. Also they have been a great help to the dilemma of my brothers scrap book where he likes a lot of photos to look at.
I recently took part in the Scrap Whispers blog hop challenge and made a kit from my existing stash, this sketch gave me the ideal opportunity to use the kit and here is my page
I have plenty left from the kit so I think a few cards will finish the supplies. I think making kits is also the method I'm going to use to do something with my stash mountain. I often craft better with limited supplies, so if I pack up my own kits I should work better. Oh and save money because I will no longer need a monthly kit to inspire me. Result!
I've still got quite a few pf the Spellbinders/Candi projects to post, even though everybody is on their way back from CHA. I am excited to see what news the Craftwork Cards team come back with.

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.
