Too lazy

I have been very bad at blogging recently no excuses but it seems to be at the bottom of my to do list. I have a few more pages to post for the ATDML cybercrop, but I need to get round to printing the photos. I also have a few cards to share and another sugarcraft creation, so I have subject matter but no time to post about them.
Today I have a card I made for one of my friends who is leaving work, this is the one for everybody to sign. I cannot claim the idea as mine, unfortunately I can't give the credit to the inspiration. I saw it in a magazine a few weeks ago and liked its simplicity. Now some weeks later when I needed a leaving card and  made this one up I cannot find the magazine. I  have no idea whether it was a recent one or an old one that I flicked through and then passed on. It was a great way to use up some scraps that were kicking around.

That is really pretty. Simple and sweet. I love it. I like to use up my scraps too. Paper piecing is a good way to this. Thrifty crafting is the way to go! jenx

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.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
