A Card Challenge at Last

Its been a while since I went into my craft room, just to play. I have spent a couple of hours making little boxes to finish off one of my Scrapstars projects I need 36 in total. Its taken me 2 hours to make 18 so I'll continue that another day. I haven't made card that isn't for a request or a design tam for ages. Today I made one just because. I have a card idea in mind and I want a little bird to make it but I can't find what I have in mind. I do have the bird and branch punch from Stampin Up, so I thought I'd make a Robin using it.
The boxes I've been making were made using the Kraft cardstock from Papermania, so while I had it out I made my card. I love how it turned out. This week over on Winter Wonderland they want to see a Robin somewhere on the card, so this is perfect for that challenge.

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

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.
