It's a Winter Wonderland

Morning, how's your week going?  Ours started with a weird weather phenomenon as Hurricane Ophelia bought sands in from the Sahara, turning the sun and sky orange.  Very eerie.........  
I'm sharing my finished Advent Calendar and a new kit with you today.  It has an oval diorama in the centre that you can build up and alter in so many different ways and two sets of twelve boxes for treats.  As you know I'm a paper girl and altered my sample in papers from the gorgeous Winter Wonderland collection by Graphic 45.  I love the blend of the Christmas colours with the brown in this paper line, and all the imagery you can cut out.   As we do I cut out far more than I ended up using.  Here's a few more pics If you'd like to make your own Advent Calendar, kits are available via the link below.  Advent Calendar Kit  Black Construction Tape 
Our Birthday Bonanza is in full swing over on the website.  If you'd like to pick up a bargain or two and save 20% off your shopping ent…

Seasons Album Set and Stand

Afternoon everyone, I hope you've enjoyed your weekend. I'm excited to be able to share the finished Seasons Album Set with you as promised.  The project took me on a colourful journey through the year as I worked on each of the albums, with birds singing, warm flowers blooming, leaves falling on pumpkins and all the chill that winter brings.  I loved how the designs of the patterned papers and the solids work together to give a really vintage blend of gorgeousness.   Take a peek at the video below to see the full project. 

If you've fallen in love with this paper collection and fancy making the album set yourself I've put together a PDF Tutorial and On Line Workshop for the project.  The stand, with it's handy drawer has been designed to hold my Shadow Box sized albums plus a little extra room for four full albums to sit in.  I altered my sample in two 12 x 12 Autumn and one 12 x 12 Autumn Collective sheets from the Seasons collection (my favourite time of the year …

October Giveaway 2017

Happy Wednesday to you all.  I've been a busy beaver in my new room, and have sneak peeks of two new projects to share with you. Whop Whop!!!! They are two of the project choices at my November Retreats in Norwich and Kenilworth.   The first is a Seasons album set and stand.  Altered in papers from the new 'Seasons' collection by Graphic 45 it's a great way to capture a year of your favourite memories or maybe seasons from different years past.  I got out my teeny weeny scissors and cut out the gorgeous floral wreaths for the front of each album while watching TV, and loved how they popped off the page from their black backgrounds. Here's a closer view of the album covers:  In true Clareeeeee style each page in the album is all about your photos and journaling, with the papers complimenting them with a seasonal feel. There's lots of room for you to add your own  embellishments from your stash too.  There's a PDF tutorial, On Line workshop (yes I've got the…

My Little Paper Doll Book

Hello there and happy Sunday to you.  I'm sharing my latest make here on my blog and You Tube channel today.  The latest Penny's Paper Doll Family collection by G45 took me back to when I was small and fun filled days cutting out the paper dolls that came in the Twinkle comic - my regular weekly read ........ shout if you remember it too:-) 
This relatively quick and easy little book to make as a great gift or stocking filler for any little person who loved to dress up paper dolls.   the book has two pockets, magnetic dolls that can be mounted on the pocket fronts and lots of outfits to dress them up in and colour too.  There's enough paper in the pads (I used sheets from the 12 x 12 and the large patterns and solids pad) to make a few of these little books too. If you'd love to make one yourself I've put together a PDF Tutorial to go with the project available from my website via this link
