At last today we have a decent bit of light, so I('ve been snapping away at my layouts. Hopefully this sunshine will keep the predicted snow away, I've used up all my snow days so am hoping that I can get to work tomorrow. This layout is the one I taught at Scrapstars.  I knew I wanted to do a travel themed page, then Caroline challenged me to make it interactive, Oh my! I picked several choices of paper and this was my first choice, it's Wayfarer by Bazzil.  and judging by the OOOHs when the ladies opened their packages I was on to a winner.I showed everybody the page and the pulled out the interactive part and there was just the right amount of Oooh's that made me happy. I was a bit worried as there is a lot of precise cutting to do, but everybody managed perfectly.
We managed to mostly finish it in the allotted 2 hours, but it was lovely to see everybody move into the cropping room and carry on with the page. Every body's page looked very different but the only difference was the holiday photos on them. I loved teaching this class and it seems that the ladies all really liked it. Here it is with the four photos:
And when you pull the cord another four photos appear and the journaling shows at the top of the page.

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.
