Only three more sleeps ...........!

Hi everyone, are you ready for the big day? With only three more sleeps to go I'm finally in the swing of festive season.  Oli's turned the grand old age of 24, Harry's home from Uni and I've been decorating and doing an early spring clean before putting up the tree and decorations. Now the house is twinkling, and we're all ready for Santa to come down the chimney, well the wood burner flu actually lol!!! on Saturday eve.  
Today I'm sharing 2016 Christmas album, also on the Graphic 45 blog with a gorgeous card by Nico so do go take a look.  It was the fifth of the projects made from the St Nicholas collection I designed for us to make at November's Graphic 45 Retreat.  Packed full of detail there are four interactive pages and pull out mats, pockets and tags and lots of room for your festive photos.  The album can be made in or out of it's box cover. Here's a few more pics and the video of the full album too. There's also a PDF Tutorial to go with it is you'd like to make it yourself. 

Here's the link to the tutorial:  St Nicholas Album PDF Tutorial 

Ohhh look at the time, I'm Harry's alarm clock this morning so have to go wake him up, he's got a date on the golf course lol!!! I'm hoping to squeeze one more post in before the 25th but if things don't go to plan I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C

  6. Lovely as always Clare. I must admit I have not touched the St. Nicholas papers, just admiring them from afar!!! I will work with them in the coming months and have a project ready for the next Christmas season!! I am ready for Christmas but just want to do a bit of a dust and clean today. It is pouring rain and will do so for the next 3 days and then we are to have snow on Sunday, Christmas Day. I may be eating Christmas dinner by myself if that happens!! Merry Christmas Clare, thank you for all of your inspiration and friendship to me. Happy New Years!!!
    Love,

  7. Good evening Clare and can I say how much I love your latest project. Just fabulous. Like Judy in Arizona, I too have yet to use any of my St. Nicholas papers - in fact this year I have been using G45's A Christmas Carol, which was a sheer joy to use. I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you for all the wonderful projects you have shared with us and your amazing inspiration. Reading your blog and making some of your projects has been so enjoyable and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in 2017. I wish you, your family and all your regular blog fans the best possible Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year. Take care and have a great time.

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…
