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.

Male Birthday card

A card I made for my son's birthday, He loves his coffee machine,  we bought him a coffee pod holder as a gift, so I thought I'd try and make a coffee themed card.
I downloaded a burlap background, printed it on white card, over-printed it with coffee slogans, cut out a clip-art image of a coffee cup, used my cuttlebug to cut out the 'happy birthday' tag with the shapeabilities die. inked in the wording and over wrote it with a glitter gel pen.
The embellishment was a strip of 'burlap' pp, with black ribbon and rik-rak.
