Twas the Night Before Christmas & September Workshop Dates

It's been a full on week of creativity here in our little old household, I've been on a real colourful journey through the Come Away with Me, An Eerie Tale and Twelve Days of Christmas collections and now have four crates worth of G45 gorgeousness all packed up and ready to take to Peterborough early doors on Saturday. I've had two crafty accidents this week.  I was stabbed on the cheek bone by the corner of a flying tray and then stood on the paper trimmer blade that had fallen on the floor.  That one was more painful than a paper cut. No accidents today thank goodness lol!! 

Join me, joining Nigel, Leone and Stephanie for the Graphic 45 Weekender shows on Create and Craft.  theres loads of fabulous products and offers and of course demos too. You can watch the programmes live via the link below and mail into the show while we're on air too.  Your mail could get read out on air and find its way into the cup of chance.  Winners drawn at the end of the show receive one of the demo cards signed by us all :-) 

The new collections arrived earlier in the week but I hadn't had a chance to look at them properly until today.  Ohhh my they're all gorgeously different but equally as beautiful.  I love all the colour ways, and the fact that they all work with other G45 collections too. 
We'll be using some of them in the workshops that are coming up too. Here's a list of where I am over the next month.  If you fancy coming along and joining me for a crafty day G45 style click the link to the shop and call for more info.

  3. Morning Clare, This project is, as always, fabulous !! I love the 'Twas the night before Christmas' tale, and I adore these papers, absolutely gorgeous.
    Let's hope you are accident free now.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  4. Hi Clare, Love your box. What a busy bee you've been this week, but you really must take more water with it which just might help to stop these crafty accidents. Am looking forward to your shows this weekend but annoyed that I won't be able to order anything as we're going away for 4 weeks and the posty won't be able to deliver in time. Still I can always record the shows and get the papers when I get back. Have an accident free weekend and fun with Nigel!! Hugs Pauline A xxx

  5. Will you have this Christmas box directions available for purchase anytime soon? We'll have to workout the exchange rate to dollars when/if you do. I've been hoarding last year's Christmas collection for the perfect project. And there it is!
    Thanks, Jess

  6. Hi Clare!
    I so wish I lived in England so I could take some of your classes! Everything you create is beyond lovely and I look forward to each and every one of your posts! Thank you!

  7. Clare's classes are always great fun and quite relaxed. Good luck with the shows over the weekend Clare. See you soon. Hope you don't have anymore accidents.

  8. Hi Clare , have just watched you for the first time with leonie on C and C , what a super show.
    Wonderful products and projects.
    Loved your demos and will now be on the lookout for more!
    I love graphic 45 and the Botanical tea papers have me in their grip!
    Great to see you and Leonie having fun as you craft!
    By the way , protective clothing when you are crafting may be the answer!!!

  9. Watched you on the "telly" yesterday on Create and Craft. I love all the things you do of course and as one fan said above I wish I could come to the UK and take your class as well!!! Have a great weekend, I didn't see any damage on your cheek so either you are a fast healer or concealer does a wonderful job!!!! Just kidding, take care.

  10. Hi Clare, watched all of your shows this weekend. Your samples; and the rest of the team are gorgeous. I loved the papers and your Eerie album is fabulous. What a great show. Just have the 7pm one to watch now. it's been one of the best weekenders .Well done. You must be exhausted. Hugs Pauline A xxx
