  1. Absolutely darling, C! Love, love, love it. The pinky-peachy colors are gorgeous, aren't they. What a sweet book. I hope you do another online workshop again soon. I know you're enjoying your design team experience -- and we are enjoying your designs!! Hugs from across the pond! Ruth Ann :) xoxo

  2. Just watched your 'walk through' of your gorgeous Ladies Diary album. This is so beautiful. I only have one question and perhaps it could be as a tutorial - how is the album constructed, or rather, how are the pages attached to the album cover? Thank you so much for sharing your creation. Helen

  3. Morning Clare, Stunning project, I've just seen this fantastic album over on Graphic 45 Blog. Ladies Diary is a personal favourite of mine, so I love this album. Who am I kidding, I love every project of yours, Clare, you are my favourite designer.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  4. Hi Clare

    Also just watched you Ladies Diary video. Lovely album and the papers are gorgeous. Like Helen I'm also wondering how the album is constructed and if the pockets are a paper fold or individual pieces of paper stuck onto the background if that makes sense!

    You certainly have some lovely ideas!


  5. Beautiful album - I need to make one that is as beautiful so can't wait for a tutorial on the album construction. It seems it can be made from Kraft - have you already done a tutorial somewhere for this type of album.............hmmmm. If not, can't wait to get the update.

  6. such a pretty album Clare,love the fron cover. looking forward to August workshop in Bedworth, sorry can't make the August bank holiday one as the boys want to go away for a few days that weekend so I lose out, fingers crossed for the next one, I suppose I could send them on their own.....hmmmm better not.
    hugs x

  7. This is gorgeous!!! I love all the little touches you have incorporated to make it beautiful without having a "heavy" feel.

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-) 

As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.

The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
