a crafty weekend at Sirstampalot


I'm just home after two fabulously crafty days at Sirstampalot, Peterborough with Janice, Andy and lots of lovely ladies and gents.  Thank you so much everyone for coming along to our demo day yesterday.  We had quite a crowd and lots of fun.  I hope everyone left feeling inspired to cut into their papers and not stash them away to be stroked :-) 
Today we constructed tag boxes and altered a few of the large tags to go inside them using papers from the Time to Flourish collection by Graphic 45.  Here's some pictures of them all.  I love them ladies :-)

  3. Morning Clare, Fabulous, fabulous piccies of these gorgeous creations, and the ladies full of concentration and then emerging with their 'works of Art', stunning samples too.
    I recorded the last episode of Poldark, but I'm not wanting to watch it because it is the 'last' one for a year, and reputed to be really upsetting, I have really enjoyed watching these and I was overjoyed to see that they are doing a second series.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia. lovely to hear form you and hope your eyes are much improved. I thought the episode was done really well and managed to get right to the end without too many tears but know It would definitely tug at your heartstrings if you watched it. I've really enjoyed reliving what I remember watching with mum in the 70's and was really pleased to hear they'll be another series. Take care and look forward to catching up again soon xx

  10. I agree with 'Homebird', it would be great if you could come up to the NE to do a weekender or workshop . I did attend one of yours held in Stockton !!! a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it when you showed us how to make a small album, but it was my very first attempt at one and would love to try some of your other more complicated projects . I do follow your blog and videos but it's not the same as having you there in person. Thanks for sharing your photos with us. Hugs Pauline A xx

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…
