Adventures Recorded

I was lucky enough during my late twenties and thirties to be able to travel a lot, it was during this time that I learnt how to use an SLR camera. The camera was a film one and until the films were developed you never knew if you'd got that perfect shot. I have spent quite a lot of time scanning these pictures so that I now have a digital version.
I have for a long time wanted to make a page that would include some of my favourite pictures all together, but there were so many it was difficult.
This year Heidi Swapp has released a new idea and product using file folders to make more interactive pages. I was a bit sceptical at first but it did inspire me to have a go at making my own. I'm really not sure about the file box, this one will go into my scrapbook as normal. As the front and back pages are not interactive, I will split a page protector along the side and bottom and sew it to the page. Here it is
the inside page
the double layout with the extra page in the middle, this has been machine stitched in the middle and then stuck together so it is a flap
two of these are mini books on this page, the first is a flip up book

the other side of the flap
and another mini book, I have to think of a way of holding this one together so it doesn't unfold each time you open the page.
inside the back cover
 and the outside back page
I have really enjoyed making this, its a great way of recording an event all on one page, or a large number of photos, this one has 46 photos on it.

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.
