suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

Tim Holtz paper

Today I receivd my package of Tim Holtz 'Idea-ology' Vintage shabby paper. I Absolutely LOVE this paper, there are 12 x 12 double sided, 6 x 6 , small 2 x2  and strips for border or ribbons included. there are 3 shades, pink, grey and blue, all fabulous vintage shabby looking.  I started on a birthday card today, I've never made cards, and I don't intend to, but his is just an 8.1/2 x 11 black cardstock with a few embellishments from this range on it. It's for a 21st birthday.  The paper is so wonderful it just begs to be ripped, torn, gunged and scrunched! but it still looks really pretty!!
