April Giveaway and our Easter Eggstravaganza

Olde curiosity Shoppe Curio Cabinet Kit My Creative Spirit Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Ohhhh I see I'm skidding in with minutes to spare to launch the April Giveaway here on the old blog. It's been a funny old day..... ! After designing this fun kit and launching is as the Curio Cabinet at my retreat last weekend I thought it would make a great giveaway this month. I have a soft spot for this collection (Olde Curiosity Shoppe), it was the one I worked with on my first design team project for Graphic 45 back in the day. I've actually managed to finish my sample today too just in time to share a few pics with you before the witching hour strikes.

I used 1/2" and 1/4" black card punched circles to mount each of the pieces and added glossy accent and clear wink of stella to various elements to pick them out.  It's been a while since I've done some serious fussy cutting and as always I have a pile of things left over that didn't make the final cut lol!!!  in my less is more kind of a world. Hope you like .....?

  32. Clare- when I saw this, it reminded me of my grandmother's antique chifforobe, sans the drawers. This piece is so lovely and brought me back to a time in my life as a child. The chifforobe was always a mystery. You never knew what was in it. TFS. I'm in for the win! Blessings

I've gone back to your Ladies diary shaker diary and your current presentation boxes and albums. more times than I can count. One of my dreams is to make it to England and attend one of your retreats.

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 :-)

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…
