About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Sunday Scrapping

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/17/2009 03:51:00 PM
Its been a lazy day today. The weather here is windy with intermittent heavy showers, causing the girls to run inside squealing in high pitch voices!
I have got on with a large "thank you card" list, which I am so pleased I actually spared myself 1 hour to write. It is long overdue!

I really am the worst card making in the world. With this in mind I bought myself the latest issue of Card Trends. Curled up on the sofa today to have a flick through, and was completely inspired. Rushed of to my studio and.................................. I really cannot make cards!

I tried and here are my measly efforts. In fact they really are so poor that you are only seeing a glimpse LOL. Anyone have any helpful tips to turn me into a budding card maker?

I even work with a square piece of card so that I treat it like a mini scrapbook page, but still....nothing.

And the aftermath!

Pencil Lines goes live tonight. Here are some sneaks of my layout.

Pencil Lines is having a revamp, and I have been working hard behind the scenes with the help of Michelle. The new look site will be all ready for June 7th.

I am also giving my blog a facelift, so expect some changes this week!
Hope you are having a relaxing weekend.
Thanks for stopping by
Anna xx

    Your cards look fab, but I know what you mean! Someone said to me once you are either a card maker or a scrapbooker - I guess it's true (not that I have managed either for far too long!) xx

    Don't be so hard on yourself. That's the beauty of cardmaking--each is a unique work of art! Anything goes!
