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.

Vintage 'Me'

I took some old photo's of myself and printed them out, but my printer had almost run out of colour ink, the result was a little soft and a bit faded, this gave me the idea of doing a vintage style page with these pics.  I used all oddments from my stash for this, borders cut with Martha Stewart's edge punches and oddments of 'Papermania' lace.  The flowers were cut from oddments and punched out with Papermania's embossed flower punch. the small white paper flowers are from Thailand.
