What a weekend

I have had a lovely long weekend, the promised snow has amounted to nothing in my neck of the woods. Well not completely we've had about 3 inches fall but it hasn't brought us to a grinding halt like it does normally. This year the council have kept all the main roads and some of the side roads clear. This has meant that I managed to go to my scrapbooking class in Leeds on Saturday and do all my normal jobs. So looking through my photos again, here is another layout I made. It was a rough  idea that I'd had to teach a scrapbook class but I've got so many more that I think I'll just publish it.

This long weekend has given me the chance to work on another page for a class I'll be teaching at the next Scrapstars retreat on 1st March.

For anybody who loves crafting with paper this is a fabulous get away, with great classes, excellent company and fun. I am so looking forward to a whole weekend of brilliant inspiration.
I have been waiting for my papers to arrive and spent Saturday evening transferring the idea form my head onto paper. I surprised myself at how easily it came together, now I just need photos and the title to bring it all togehter.

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.

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.
