Keep off the grass ..............


Its all happenin' down here in Brixham, boats in, fish everywhere and the seagulls are having a ball.  Shame they can't do it quietly lol!!!  I'd forgotten how fascinating it is being by the water.  Our little cottage had a balcony that looks out over the harbour, Marina and Fish Market.  Amazing views. 
Yesterday we walked out to one of the last seawater swimming pools in the country. It closed at the end of the season last week but what an amazing place.  

While we've been uploading our holiday pics I found this file folder I'd made a few weeks ago.  I'd made the dimensional plaque of flowers and decided to frame it under acetate on the front of the folder to protect it.  All the flowers are stamped with JOFY stamps and coloured using distress inks and water.  I love the soft effects you get using this technique.  Just got to finish the dividers for the inside .........! 


I'm loving all these relaxing mornings, no early morning taxi runs.........  Enjoy your day what ever you get up to, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again later int he week :-)

What a week!

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…
