A Fab workshop at Crafting Times

Happy Monday morning to you, hope you enjoyed your weekend.  I was down with Nina and her ladies yesterday at Its Crafting Times for a By the Sea style workshop.  It was lovely to see everyone again and new ladies too.  Thanks for a great day all.  I took loads of photo s during the day to share this morning but for some strange reason the phone has blank Jpeg files on it!!!  Not sure what happened there but will see if Nina has some and post them later.   
I picked up the whole collection of Heritage Titanic papers too.  I'd seen them a couple of years ago at Ally Pally,  didn't buy them and have spent the last couple of years searching for them on the net.   I was at Nina s a few weeks ago and came across them completely by accident while browsing through a black album full of the complete Heritage paper and ephemera collections designed by Sally Elve Butler.  They're absolutely gorgeous.  Now I have more papers to stroke and look at lol! 

Titanic Paper and Ephemera Collection
The pic (top) is one of the projects we're making at our retreat this weekend.  We're  altering the A5 box and drawer, adding a divider and trinket tray and then making the album and note book to go in the two sections.  I've mainly been cutting out all the chipboard pieces for the packs with the help of the boys which has been a great help. There's loads of them.    
it's time to get up, cut some more chipboard and head off to a friends to make flowers :-)  so enjoy your day, thanks for calling by and catch up again soon:-) C

  7. What a darling box, C. As always! Guess what. I was able to obtain the Titanic collection too! A real treasure -- especially since it's coming from the UK to me here in the US. :) Thanks for sharing your workshops with us all. What an opportunity for those who live in the area!! I'm glad we're able to "participate" via tutorials. That's fabulous!! Hugs to you, Ruth Ann xoxo

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…
