A Gilded Lily Workshop

It's a wet old morning here in England, quite a blessing after an uber hot one on Saturday.  I was down  with the lovely Janet and ladies at Birds in the Barn, for a Graphic 45 workshop.  We snipped, stuck and crafted albums and pencil cases using the beautiful Gilded Lily papers by Graphic 45 and laughed all day.  We started off making our albums  and the ladies got quite competitive about who was going to finish theirs first.  With lots of laughs along the way it was Wendy who stuck the last piece of paper into hers just before the 2 o clock deadline.  Then it was onto pencil cases.  More hilarity as Janet showed us how well her lid slid into her case.  Thank you ladies for such a fun day.  Enjoy using your projects.
Loved the matching crockery Janet had picked up for the shop from a local Charity shop and Karens cake was just amazing.  She really is the Mary Berry of Marks Tey.  
Here s a few pics form our lovely day. 
Wendy left with a couple more of my products to alter too :-) 
Enjoy making them Wendy.  
I"ll be back in the shop in September.  Will share the date with you once we've sorted it.  
No gardening for me today and definitely no need to do any watering so I"m going to start prepping some samples for the G45 shows I"m on in August and get a couple of outstanding projects finished too.  Enjoy your Monday and catch up again soon

  3. Just beautiful Clare. I wish we had you here in the States, West Coast, for classes. I just love everything you do and have purchased many of your tutorials along with following all your Let's Make....series on You Tube. I asked about this project on FB and wanted to know what Pencil Box/Album you used for this one. You told me either one. Can you tell me, Pretty please, which one is the closest to the project above. I so love these blues. Tina in California

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…
