Oh Dear!

 What has happened to my posts lately? I haven't done any, its not that I haven't done anything, its just that most of them have to be kept under warps for a little while. One thing I have done is make up some pages ready for photos. I have been inspired by Shimelle's 'starting points' and rather than do nothing while I wait for photos to come along for me to scrap, if I've got a base ready the page will come together quickly. Here are a few I have ready.
all of them made from papers left over from retreat projects or my scrap box.
Speaking of retreats, its only one week to the Scrapstars retreat. This is certainly a highlight in my social calendar. Lots of scrapbooking taught by lovely teachers. Catching up with other crafters and sharing ideas. What's not to get excited about. I'm also very excited as I'll be teaching the first class on the Friday night.
Tonight I have packed all the my bag with all the equipment I need to take and made sure I have a new blade in my trimmer. Only 7 sleeps to go!

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.
