It's Raining Cats and Dogs :-)

Raining Cats and Dogs Photo Folio Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Morning Everyone, it's a chilly one here, the snow from the last couple of days has been rained away leaving a damp dull day hanging over us!!! but it's cozy warm and colourful here in the craft room.  I'm really excited to be sharing a new make with you today using papers and embellishments from the Raining Cats and Dogs Deluxe collectors Edition from Graphic 45.  I loved this paper collection when it was released a few years ago and love it as much, or maybe a little more second time around.  It's perfect to create pet themed projects, but if like me you only have a goldfish and no pet pictures to add into an album or folio you can easily create beautiful projects by using the B side of the papers.  The colours in this collection are just gorgeous. 
The Photo Folio measures 10 1/4" x 8 1/4", and has room to showcase twenty 6 x 4 photos plus additional space for more pics and memorabilia too.  Here's a pics of the pages

I'm off to do a bit of shopping, flick a duster around downstairs and then I think I'll be back in the craft room later.  My desk is covered in Fairie Dust papers - a new album is under construction whop whop.  Well, that's all from me today, thanks for calling by.  Happy crafting, have a fun day and let's catch up again soon :-)  Oh just a quick update, our January Giveaway will be launched on Jan 1st, so do call back then and leave a comment if you'd like to be in with a chance to win. 
Ta Ta for now :-) Cx


  1. Love your work as always Clare and this paper collection is one of my favorites!!!! Loved French Country too!! This is a nice photo album think I will get busy and get my supplies lined up!!! Do take care, we don't have snow and are extremely dry here, which is not good else we will have a horrific fire season this spring and summer. We are to get much needed rain in a week or so so I will be looking forward to that!! Love, love, love your work/projects, thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn't want to hide any of those lovely papers by covering them with photos though!
