Some handy resource sites

Have you ever had scrappers block? Well, it is a common problem. There is nothing wrong with drawing some inspiration from other peoples work. Scraplifting is not a dirty word. Most scrappers will be honoured that you are wanting to utilise their page and make it your own. Whether you copy it verbatim or draw from elements, the only rule with scraplifting is that you give mention when mention is due. Don't pass it off as your own, it is just not the scrapping way!!!

I have included a lovely link to a site with pages to colour in, something to keep the wee-ones busy. I have used some of the images to create paper piecing items for scapbooking too!

Over the years I have found some handy sites to find either inspiration or resources. I have listed some of my favourite below:

Becky Fleck Page Maps
A new sketch page every month and tons of archive items!

Filled with pictures to print out, catagorised by theme.
Cardmaking inspiration

UK Scrappers
Scrappers heaven forum!

I hope you find these links useful!! I would love to hear from you, let me know you are visiting by becoming a follwer!!

Until the next time!
Yours in punches and glue!

Hello! Hello

This blog page has been a long time coming!! It is through a series of bizarre events that I have ended up finally doing a blog page. It is my intention to add inspiration to those who are keen to get craft and I will post my latest creative adventures, which include scrapbooking, cardmaking, photography and any thing else that includes paint, glue and glitter!! I will be posting all sorts of things to do, to make and ideas to keep little fingers busy. I have found that a fabulous way of keeping my children busy during the 9 week summer vacation in Dubai, is by using the stuff I would normally throw away, to make all kinds of fun things like puppets, trinket boxes and frames.

Here's to happy crafting!!
