Project 12 - August

The colder weather is  making me feel like I should be making my Christmas cards, so for these colder evenings I've stamped out a few images and I'm having some big girl colouring sessions. I've promised myself that I will not buy any more Christmas papers, I have enough to make cards and pages for the next 5 years. I must Not give in! I went through my scrap box and there is enough in there to make at least a dozen cards. It is all going to be used before I cut into a new piece of paper. Come back later this week to see what I make.
As September grows nearer I have completed my August page for Project 12 over on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog. The weather is definitely growing colder but I refuse to put the heating on in the house just yet, I've just pulled out a cardigan for the time being. The sketch for August was a little bit different with only three photos on it. I wanted to record a lovely day I had recently with my friend in Tropical World, but it was difficult to choose only three pictures. I had some smaller pictures printed and hey presto My favourite pictures all fitted on.
Here is the sketch
and here is my page

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.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

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.
