A crafty day down on the farm

Graphic 45 Christmas Carol Workshop with Clare Charvill

I'd like to send thoughts and prayers to all who suffered in the atrocities in Paris on Friday night.  Such a beautiful city. Words can't describe how the families of those who lost their lives must be feeling right now.  It really makes you wonder whats coming next. 
Our class was great fun yesterday.  Ladies thanks for joining me, huge thanks to Isobel at Scotch Lodge Farm for arranging the dates and class and Patsie for keeping us fed and watered throughout the day.  Organisers and File folders all made up and almost decorated.  There was lots to cram into our day before Bev, who'd joined us all the way from Australia heads home on Tuesday.  Here's a few pics. Love Julies project altered in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' papers. 

The Event Organiser kit, and various combinations of the project sheet to alter the kit or to just make the albums are available over on our website along with the Lantern Kit that I know lots of you have been asking about.  Links to each option below:

Event Organiser Kit - the chipboard kit with album covers and spines ready to alter (papers Sold separately) 
Christmas Carol Event Organiser Project Sheet - Instructions and cutting guide for the full project including the organiser and file folder. 
File Folder and Organiser Project Sheet - includes supply list and full instructions to make the file folder and organiser 

Our new journaling mask is now in stock too.  Great to add lines to your journal pages and projects with pens or inks. I've used it in the organiser above with co ordinating stamps from the Christmas Carol collection. 

Well my lovelies, I've got to shake a tail feather or two about the house here before the boys return.  I'd hate them to think I've been doing absolutely nothing lol!!!  now there's a thought.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up with you again later in the week.

  2. Clare, I love your albums and I am patiently waiting for A Christmas Carol album tutorial video! I hope you are having a busy and fun filled November. It is very sad about the terrorism in France, Lebanon, and Egypt. It is hard to think about carrying on and not thinking of all the sadness. You and Graphic 45 brighten my days! Enjoy your family and art.

  3. Morning Clare, NOUS SOMMES PARIS ! My heart and prayers are with Paris, what a horrendous time.

    Your piccies of your workshop are brilliant, and well done to the girlie who had come from Australia to attend, safe return home.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
