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.

Easter Weekend

As this weekend, true to English weather patterns, we have had cold and rain, So instead of going out and doing the usual weekend/holiday stuff I stayed in, watched a few movies and then, as usual, my craft room beckoned and so after a bit of a clear out and tidy up, I decided to give my storage pots a 'shabby chic' makeover.  
I used some vintage pp and 'laced' the edges with Martha Stewart's doily lace edge punch, added some home-made paper flowers, some lace and ribbon/twine trim. I got this idea from Pinterest ! some fabulous talented people pin the most extraordinary things and I am always inspired by their talents.
