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.

Grunge paper roses

The link below, is from's tutorial for these amazing roses. I have made a trial one out of newspaper, it came out really well. but, alas, the dog 'killed' it and so no photo's. must keep them safe from now onwards.  The Layout here has ready made roses on, but next time I hope to do it with my own.  This is photo of my grandmother whom I never knew, but I wanted to keep her memory alive as she was my dear Dad's mum. this LO was done with My Mind'seye, la paperie paper, cricut/SCAL swirly flourishes, lace and a doily of my own.
