Scrapstars continued

Yes this is definitely the retreat that keeps on giving, I still haven't come down from my recent retreat Scrapstars. You will have seen one of the pages we made under the guidance of the fabulous Emma, well here is another one. This page was based on the latest trend of memory jars, where you collect memorabilia and store it in a jar. We were to create this page and the memory jar element was a CD type case to store a memory in. I decided to use a past memory and call it dreams. My wedding day, because although I am no longer married it really was a day full of dreams.
I recently followed a thread on UKS where the question was do you record the bad and the good on scrapbook pages. My personal thought is if you can deal with it sensitively and you need to do it why not. I can't ignore the fact that I was married for 6 years, or that I just had the most fabulous wedding day. So here I am talking about the dreams I had on that day. I don't have any mementos from the day but I put some confetti into the little bottle and the CD case and I included a cake decoration I had of two wedding rings tied with a little bow. If i can find the same as I had on my cake I will add little bells.
Here is my page and because there is so much to look at I've added some detail shots.

Oh Kathy, this is just what I had envisioned when I designed the class. You have embraced the idea brilliantly and created a beautiful page. I LOVE that you used a past memory too:)

It's blumming fab! xx

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.
