If you haven’t already heard about this site, then check it out. A Couple of my Layouts show the use of it. You could also cut it out if you wanted with Sure Cuts a Lot, but a lot of welding etc. I like the printed type to embellish my pages. Basically Wordle is a Java applet that lets you type a bunch of words in and make it a word jumble. Then you can choose the colours you want the text to be in to match your Layout. 

Hope you enjoy it and if you do, leave me a message and a link to your blog so that I can see what you have done with it! Please make sure you check out their “FAQ” for help.


Here is one of the wordles I have done.


Some More Layouts

Last week of the challenges on Club Scrap Camp and this is proving the most difficult for me! We have to follow ALSB instructions which is Assembly Line Scrapbooking. You are given a layout with cutting measurements etc and then you need to place your photos etc… Not my type of scrapbooking but I gave it a go..

My Birthday Card Shower!

Thank you. You are all a very clever bunch of ladies

Another Digi Layout

Ok, so I have gotten addicted to downloading all the beautiful free digital kits online!! So, while sitting in the lounge tonight, instead of tucked away in my scraproom, I did this one. Hope you like it.

Digi Scrapbooking

I keep trying to figure this thing out!! And I think I have finally got it. I did a couple of digi scrapbook LO’s, but I still do not see the value in it. Whilst there is no paper, no mess in your room, you can sit at your PC and do all this, whilst in the same room as family, you do not save any money as you still have to print it out, you still have to store it on your computer, you still need to pay someone to put together a Digi book for you and then the textures, feel etc is all gone when printed. It is flat. I am happy to stand corrected, but I think paper, inks, cutting, pasting and making a huge mess are more for me.











Card Challenge PSL – Club Scrap

I am taking part in another PSL – Camp. One of the challenges this week is to make cards. One of the other challenges which I will fail, is to make LO’s of before and after. I don’t like to do before and after. I like my pages in order of what happened, not 10 years before or 10 years later etc… I may manage one of the before and after with the kitchen remodel but I have to find the photos first ! The Princess title on the purple card was cut with Sure cuts a lot!
