Scrapping Again

I wish I could go out and sit in the sun, but today I'm feeling pretty lousy. I'm back on the antibiotics for  stinking chest and ear infections.£18 for the prescriptions, my God! I already had today booked off work with the intention of giving my garden some TLC. Instead its going to be me that gets it.
I had a great weekend with my crafting buddy Julia, nothing new there. We had another of our girly scrapping weekends. We both had the Sarah's cards kit from May, using the Stella and Rose papers, just gorgeous. I have also been tidying my craft room, it's one of those 'Why did I start that job?' moments. I discovered a few projects I'd started at retreats and just hadn't got round to finishing them. So they came out and are not going away until I finished them. I also pulled out some kits I hadn't really liked  . That left me with plenty to do.
One of the kits that originally left me uninspired was the For the Record kit from April, this really didn't suit me. I've made two pages from it and I love both of them. I really need to look at my papers better. I was inspired by Shimelle Laine's 4 x 6 photo love classes over on Two peas in a bucket. In February the theme was two pictures on the page, here is my page :
Right a cup of tea, antibiotics and a nap for me next.

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.
