October in it to win it Giveaway and Whats new on the blog this month


Happy 1st October to you all.  
I'm back in the Midlands after the workshop up in Stockton with Tom and Sue at the weekend, and by special request from Harry my small this morning I've been in the kitchen making him a lemon cake to come home to.  I haven't done that for such a long time I can't wait for him to come through the door and cut into it.  I used to bake all the time but as other things have come along it's been quite a while since I made a tasty bake.  Maybe I'll have a piece too :-) 

Behind the scenes I've been beavering away on a new photograph album/memory book from the bright and vibrant Typography papers by Graphic 45.  There's a link below to the video of the album.  

To go with it there's a new on line workshop that will go live on 9th October,  tab top embellishment pack and written instructions if you prefer to work from those.  All all available in our  blog shop.    I'm working on a Mother Goose album that will be along soon too. 

We've got another giveaway this month, an 8 x 8 Typography paper pad and Regular Tag album.  To be in it to win it just leave a comment on this post. The winner will be randomly selected and announced here on the blog on Saturday 26th October - my birthday whooo hoo!!!! :-) 



Happy blogging everyone and look forward to hearing from you :-)

  2. Morning Clare, WOW !! your Typography album looks fabulous and Thank You for the 'in it to win it' giveaway, my fingers are crossed !!
    I bet Harry will be scoffing your lemon cake very soon. Personally, I am 'caked out' ha ha, we had a fundraiser at Church last Sunday, and I had said I would make a coffee cake, so I had to practice all last week with various recipes, my hubby's workmates were thrilled to bits, as he kept taking the cakes into work for them to test, and they loved it. Sunday's 'High Tea' went really well, but ohhhhhhhh, my 'system' is not used to so much cake, hence the phrase 'I'm all 'caked' out' ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  40. Thank you so much for sharing your craft and talent with us. I love your style and manner of crafting. I really like this new Typography album you've done. I hadn't really considered buying this line at this time, I have so much waiting in the wings to do, with papers I already own, but I'm reconsidering after seeing the close ups of the paper and the cut-aparts. *sigh*

    I just wanted to say that I LOVED todays shows and was thrilled to hear my email read out during the second of your shows. I was the sad lady from South Yorkshire who sometimes has to buy two of everything! (lol) Even though I wasn't lucky enough to win one of your fabulous cards I shall be keeping everything crossed that I might have more luck with your give-away. Thanks again for two wonderfully inspiring shows - you rock!
