Scrapbook Class Reveal

A few weeks ago I posted a sneaky peek of a scrapbook class that I would be teaching at the Craft Box. Well I taught the class last week, I have shown friends in small groups how to make pages and I am a trainer by profession, so the teaching bit wasn't a problem. What did make me nervous was whether the ladies would like the page. This was the prototype that I came up with

 as it was a full day class I needed to create two pages and I also wanted to use different techniques. The first page had an interactive element and I worried it may have been a little bit too advanced. I shouldn't have worried, there were 8 ladies all of different levels but everybody made lovely pages. I'm always surprised at how different everybodys work looks even though they use the same papers. So here is the page again but in the papers the class used. I loved them and the colours were just perfect. I know there isn't a title I have just placed these photos to show the pages, this is my job for today to find the right pictures.
the interactive part shows when the tab at the top of the photo is pulled, this did get an OOOh from the ladies when I showed them.
it shows two more photos or journalling what ever you want.
I have another class scheduled on 21st OCtober, so if you fancy coming along, ring the Craft Box and book your place, all 8 of my ladies rebooked and with a maximum of 12 places you will need to be quick.

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.
