August Giveaway Winner and free Notebook holder instruction sheet

Morning everyone, I know I'm a day late announcing the winner of our August giveaway but my feet haven't really touched the ground since I got home late Sunday eve.  Monday was spent prepping for the Create and Craft shows yesterday.  You never really know how many demo's are going to fit into the shows so I always prep far more than I need and it takes an age....  Yesterday was taken up driving down to Peterborough for 2pm and then prepping the set and setting up demos in the Studio. Thank you Karen and Sandra for your lovely samples, they looked fab on the set.  Got home about 10pm last night and headed off to bed :-)  Loved the shows with Nigel and Dean and see lots of you bought the two gorgeous collections.  Enjoy crafting with them when they arrive. If you fancy making the notebook holder from the earlier show here's the link to download the instruction sheet.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the craft show at Lanhydrock, joined in my make and takes. Karen and Ruth thank you for inviting me to your shops down in Cornwall last week and ladies, thank you to you all for coming along and joining me for two great days crafting with the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers.  I'm back down in Cornwall next week at Scrapbook Magic on Friday 11th September running a Craft Maid class and then back at Lanhydrock Papercraft Show on 19th March 2016 and with Karen at Total Papercraft on the 25th March.  Will share more class dates with you later in the week.

  3. Loved your show on C&C Clare ... they are never long enough for me. I would love to attend one of your workshops but I don't drive far now. Your notebook holder has given me an ever needed idea for a couple of little christmas prezzies. It will also spur me on to use some of my ever increasing and carefully sorted G45 bit box !! Thank you, a wonderful gift, wish someone would make me one I never get round to it...lol. Irene x

  4. Beautiful Miss Clare!!!! As always!!!! I have made one already and will be making more for Christmas gifts!! Keep your inspiration coming, we love you.

  5. Many thanks for the instructions Clare. I did record the show but this is a bonus. I think I shall use the Rare Oddities papers when they arrive (after the bottle!).

    Do you ever do workshops in Scotland?

    Take care


  6. Morning Clare, Firstly, congratulations to Cheryl, enjoy your goodies.
    Lovely piccies today, all these lovely peeps enjoying workshops etc with you, lucky girlies.
    Thank you so much for the tutorial, I have just downloaded it, will have to have a read and try and catch up on your show recordings. I wish I could afford the new collections they are gorgeous, sadly we are having financial problems at the moment and I'm having to sell lots of my crafting stash, but I can still make your fabulous Notebook Holder with the Graphic 45 collections that I already have.
    Enjoy your day, hopefully you can get a bit of 'me' time in your busy schedule.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  7. Sounds like the C&C shows were great. Have them recorded but not found time to watch yet. Have to make the effort now though. Especially looking forward to the note book holder.
    Have a good couple of days and take care

  8. Good afternoon Clare, Apologies but have been absent without leave due to ill-health (again) and sadly missed your live C&C shows. However, thanks to the wonders of "Sky" I have you "on tap" (and tape - lol) so will be watching at some future date. Congratulations to Cheryl and Clare thank you for your continued inspiration. Take care
