Graphic 45 Fussy Cutting Demos at the Great British Craft Festival

If you're planning a day out at the Great British Crft Show, Donnington Park, Castle Donnington in Derbyshire on Saturday 18th August 2012 why not come along an say hi.  I'll be on the Ali-Craft  stand and stepping into Mr Inks shoes for the day-) 

I've recently been dubbed the "Fussy Cutting Queen"  by many of my You Tube followers, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to get the scissors out and show you how easy it is to cut into the amazing Graphic 45 papers, and along with a few other techniques including ink brushing, ribbon inking, layering and glittering make the tag I made for CHA, Summer 2012 and a few others from my vintage Halloween tag collection using the new Happy Hauntings paper collection on sale on the stand. 

 For more info on the show and how to get there just click on the link below. 


  1. So wish I were able to come to Donnington - but I'm prebooked on a singing workshop that weekend... clashing hobbies!
    Hope you have a great time!

  4. I love your projects, but I struggle to hear you. I have a sound system so I know it is not me. I was trying so hard to listen to the Ladies Diary notebook, but could not hear you at all. Please check your audio because I love youe projects. Thanks, Lanna

Your projects are really lovely. Thank you for generously providing the videos and tutorials. PS Yes, your voice is muted, but I'm able to crank up my volume.

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
