Remember Me?

I can't believe how long it is since I posted, no reason apart from a very busy period in my life. Since my last post I have changed jobs, unfortunately it wasn't a smooth transition with my old employers playing a bit of a dirty game. It's all sorted now and I am settling into my new job.
I then went on a weekend trip to Glasgow to meet up with an old friend, and to celebrate her daughter's engagement. She hasn't changed a bit and I am planning to visit again soon.
I've also been to the Scrapstars retreat. This was the best one ever. I was asked to teach two classes so I had my thinking cap on to come up with some ideas. I have a lot of projects to show so there should be no shortage of posts over the coming weeks.
This was the first class I taught, an interactive travel themed page. It was based on a waterfall card. I just up sized it and rotated it. It holds 7 photos perfect for those times you want a lot of photos on one 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.
