February Giveaway

It's been a few days since my last post so I thought I'd grab a coffee and take a few minutes to send you all crafty hugs and apologies if I haven t got to reply to your comments. It's been a hectic time behind the scenes but now we're all ready to head off to Daisy's Jewels and Crafts tomorrow for a romantic themed Graphic 45 workshop and then to the Holiday Inn next Friday for our February weekend Crafters Retreat.  With a choice of four projects to create, raffle, lucky dip and a pub quiz style eve on Saturday night it's going to be a fun weekend.  We still have a couple of places left if you fancy coming along.  Here's a quick peek at the projects: 
Option 1 
In Botanicabella or Steampunk Debutante collections
Option 2 
Altered perpetual Calendar and Mon Amour Post Bound album  

I thought it would be fun to give away one of our perpetual calendar kits this month.  It's a really fun kit to make with loads of scope to get seriously creative with your stamps paints and papers. My samples above were altered in PaperArtsy paints and stamps all available from our shop.  If you'd like to be in with a chance to win the Calendar Kit just leave a comment below before midnight on 29th February (leap year this year) and our winner will be announced here on 1st March.

Harry's just rang for a lift home from the dentist so need to go dash.  Poor H has had root canal treatment this morning and is feeling really down in the dumps and in need of some papering from Mum.  

Have a great weekend and thanks for calling by.  See you tomorrow if you're coming along to my workshop at Daisy's and good luck if you're entering this months giveaway.

  1. Wow! This calender is so cool! I would love to have a go at making one! Thank you for the chance - I have never tried anything like this! I hope your son is ok, bless him. I had to have root canal work a few years ago so I know how he feels. Pampering from Mum will make him feel so much better! xxx

  7. I absolutely love this perpetual calendar, I have a rather bulky pattern I have made as gifts, but this is sleek and beautiful! I also love that you have many styles, like me! Depending on my mood and who I am making for, i go from cute, to funky, to fancy so I seemed to like everything I saw on your pages!

I just need time and a moment to sit down and be inspired again and again and again! Thank you so very much for creating beautiful pieces and inspiring us all! Karna

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. 

Tag 1
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…
