"Lets Make" Series 4 - A ribbon bound mini album


My "lets Make" series 4 is now on my You Tube channel and takes you through how to make a ribbon bound mini album from card.  I used this technique to make the album in my on the board walk mini album in a chest for my featured artist slot on Graphic 45 's blog on Monday 19th December.

Happy crafting everyone :-) C


  1. Hi there,
    Have been watching your videos for a few weeks and thought it would be nice of me (finally!!) to write you a comment and thank you for your great videos. I've learnt (learned??) so much and love all your techniques. Watching you make these mini albums helps me so much as I really don't 'get it' when I read tutorials. So please keep up the great work and again, thank you so much for taking the time to make these wonderful videos.

  2. Hi Claire

    BUT!!! you are not going to beleive this! I just watched your YouTube Video and couldnt beleive it when you said your Sons were called Oliver and Harry!! So are mine!

    My eldest is Oliver (27) he has a mild form of Autism and Harry is 17 and is a VERY mad golfer:)

    Please dont tell me they are Oliver William and Harry Jack because they would be just too strange.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  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 IndigoBlu

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 se
