Another Scrapstars Page Finished

I tidied my craft room for three hours, and could finally see the counter top. As a reward I allowed myself to finish another of the pages I started at the Scrapstars retreat last weekend. I am a huge fan of Emma Trout's work and have attended 4 classes taught by her now. I am always amazed that she 'sees' things in papers that I completely miss until she points them out. Last weekend we made two gorgeous pages, this one was designed to teach us how to use glimmer mists and painting. I need practice with the mists so that I don't get the spots, I did get a few on this page, but far less than normal. We then cut out the elements from Webster's Pages papers, All about me. I'm really loving Websters Pages at the moment and these classes have inspired me to look at them in a different way.

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.
