4 x 6 Photo Love - December

The last of this year long project is to get 12 4 x 6 photos onto one layout, well I've been waiting for 12 months to see how this was possible. Very clever Shimelle! I have had these photos for so long, well since 1992. I have pondered and wondered how I was going to get them all into a layout without shrinking them down so you could no longer see the detail or without adding importance to those that remained larger. 
One day when we were in Washington DC we decided to walk from the hotel to the Capitol and visit all of the landmarks in between, when we go to the Washington Memorial and went up inside we could see everything from above, amazing! I managed to add in the aerial view from each side and then the close up photos of the landmarks that we then visited. Some of the pictures were not so good on the day So I had bought postcards, I have to admit this layout is a mixture of photos and postcards.
 You would think that stack of 12 photos on mounts would make a bulky, page bit it hasn't, I replace the original string g that attached the pictures to the page with embroidery thread and it made the whole thing much slimmer and lighter. The back of each photo has the journalling, well it will when I finish writing it!
I'm now looking forward to the next 12 month projects that will be featured on UK Scrappers and Two Peas in a Bucket.

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.
