I bought my first ever issue of Vogue magazine recently. I was thumbing through a Christmas issue in the local library and thoroughly enjoyed all it's sumptuous colours and bling... as you would imagine in a festive issue of such a mag!
But whilst flicking through the pages, I starting to be inspired by it's content for use on my scrapbooking pages and other art and fabric projects... BUT, probably not in the way you might think.
My inspiration came from the fact that ANYTHING GOES! That's right, it's a point of fact that any celebrity can be photographed in a paper bag and all his/her followers rush out to buy said paper bag, or an off-the-shelf copy!!!!
If I sound cynical, then yes I am... or should I say I WAS! BUT I no longer tut and say "good grief" under my breath when I see stick insect models with "designed" hair that just looks like they have come through a hedge backwards with pale, drawn, sunken eyes (intentionally painted that way) and pouting, moody lips in a pose that looks akin to needing the toilet!
My Photograph... an Ode to the Handbag "shot" mag page!!! And yes, it's a new handbag and a COMPLETE departure from my normal Black, or Brown utilitarian... will go with anything... usual choice! LOL Do I look moody enough do you reckon?
No, no, no... I rejoice nowadays in the thought that if it's ok to put a blurred picture of a product, such as a tiny clutch bag, on an ill looking model in some Carribean backdrop in the pages of Vogue, then frankly whatever I want to create by way of scrapbooking, art or any other creation is just dandy!

Hello all! A day late... sorry but I had Flu! Thank you to Eileen and Sally for their comments on the last post!
So... I have a FREEBIE CardMaking Kit for you! The link below will take you to a page on the new ICanCraftNow.com website. There you will find a tutorial, a video tutorial and the link to the download itself.
This is the Card... and there is a more simple version for complete beginners too.
As you can see from the second photograph there is also a pretty insert too.
The card is a Birthday Card or a Mother's Day card (still to come this year in the States I believe), both options are in the kit.
The Card is designed from the Pink Damask Collection (the 12 papers kit preview below - which is available on the site, along with an envelope and tag kit to match the card).
Below is a card I have made using some of the papers from the kit... yep, they're blue/green! So a very versatile kit as it's not all pink!
However, there is also a Blue Damask Collection on it's way soon, first part of which is a scrapbooking page and card kit with papers, word art and embellishments.
CLICK HERE to take you to the freebie Hybrid CardMaking Kit... and yes there will be more freebies on their way!
Oh... and a PS... last Thursday I was taking part in an Aston Martin Drive Experience - a voucher my hubby bought me for my birthday last year...
Yes... that IS me driving... with a lovely crash helmet on! LOL I have no idea what speed I managed to get the V12 up to, but I would say over the ton on occasion! (100mph) mere walking pace for such a car!

Well it's been fun and games at my house!... I have finally managed to edit the videos from the Stitch and Craft show, but only because I have borrowed someone else's machine to do it! (see end)
So below is that video of the Stitch and Craft Show and underneath that is another video! That one is about How to Make Layered Flowers by ripping paper. Quite a useful technique... especially if you have forgotten your scissors! LOL The flowers can be used for scrapbooking pages and for cards, both of which I show you in the "How To" Video.
I hope you enjoy them!
As I mentioned above I, and my computer shop owning friend have spent hours trying to figure out why not one, but two video editing suites won't work on my laptop after it's new hard drive!! I am determined to conquer... not giving up on this one!
