Making small Roses

Another incredibly busy week and I am really looking forward to this coming weekend as I am attending a CM mega party and get to crop and create for a few hours this Saturday!! Its also good to see what other wonderful products there are to play with out there.

My tip for this week is a simple one for all the scrapbookers out there! BACKUP! Yes thats right time to save a copy of all those memorable moments onto disk or the good old brick. I had a heart stopping moment the other night when I started up my main computer and it flashed blank for ages and didnt look like i was going to start up properly. Talk about panic! so I am in the process of save save save and if you havent done it for a while now is the time.

I didnt add a sketch Wednesday but would like to draw your attention to many of the fantastic online challenge sites around that you can take part in. My favourites at the moment are Just add Ink, Freshly Made Sketches and  Friday Mashup. They are all great sites and its lovely to see how welcoming the site members are as they leave lovely comments on your cards!

And finally another freat find on the internet and guess what??? yep its all about flowers LOL

296: Product Review

It has been a huge week!! I had to take time otherwise spent on the blog and invest it into my job. I never said bloggin daily was going to be easy LOL but I am here now! A shocking thing happened after a workshop yesterday! My friggin Big Shot handle snapped off!! It was bent after a good workout at work when some of the kiddies tried to sandwich something incorrectly and had been fine of late then started making this terrible sound before TWAANNG!!! Have been in contact with the company to see if I can purchase the said part that buckled under pressure so fingers crossed. I had gotten to the point where I had been using it every time I scrapped. Has anyone else had this happen? I was a bit lost today when I sat down to make some cards :(

I have been getting into using the punches as well. I am growing fonder of punched pieces. It the past I felt that punch art was really daggy but with all of the great punch styles coming out its looking much more classy. With Easter around the corner I felt it would be a great time to share a clip from one of my favourite utube channels. I plan on mashing this up with the kids at work so that the Big EB has somewhere to put the eggs !! :)

Inking and embossing

I have a few crafters workshop stencils aboutt he place but you could also use and of the "reliefs"left over after you have sent a cartridge through your bigshot to create you own original look. I am going to attempt the inking technique for my scrapbook page this week.

What's on the Web
Well anything that this wonderfully creative lady does is fantastic and along with my love of flowers this is a how to must that I just had to share with you all.
