November 30th !!! Where has the year gone


Evening everyone, I hope I find you well.  Its been a really miserable few days, rain and wind making it feel like winter is on its way.  Late this year for us so mustn't complain :-) 
I was out and about at the weekend with the crafty ladies at Daisy s Jewels and Crafts.  We had a really lovely Graphic 45 workshop altering small boxes and making little albums to go in them.  Thank you Wendy for inviting me along and ladies huge thanks for joining me.  Here's a few pics. 





Whats New:
This seasons Christmas album is now available in on line workshop and project sheet format.  Heres the link to the video for the album if you'd like to see it all the way through. 

Our lantern kit is now available on line too.  It makes a lovely Christmas centre piece or decoration for you mantle and can be decorated with real or hand made festive flowers or garlands. 
Christmas Carol Lantern Kit My Creative Spirit Graphic 45
Apparently the Christmas Carol 8 x 8 and 6 x 6 pads have been discontinued.  We have a few 6 x 6 ones left from the retreat if you're wanting to craft with the collection, or just want to stock up on Festive coloured papers for cards. 

With one more demo day and workshop at Sirstampalot on 12th & 13th December booked for this year I'm on a mission to update the blog with the dates and details of where I'll be next year.  The year has flown by once again and tomorrow can you believe its December 1st!!!  25 days till Christmas.  Whop Whop :-)  

Tonight is the last eve to leave a comment on this months giveaway post.  The winner will be announced here tomorrow so if you'd like to leave a last minute comment click the link below.  There's a lantern kit up for grabs. 

EEEK it's 8pm and time for Eastenders......... got to dash.  Have a great rest of your day/eve and look forward to catching up with you tomorrow or later in the week.  Thanks for calling by :-)

  6. Good evening Clare, from a somewhat damp and blustery South Yorkshire! As always love your photographs and everyone's altered boxes look just fab! I'm keeping my fingers (and everything else for that matter) well and truly crossed for the November draw. Take care.

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 :-)

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…
