  4. Hi Claire, What gorgeous projects, I absolutely love 'A Ladies Diary' papers, I have just made a 70th birthday card from them. I want to make projects from my Graphic 45 papers and I would love to join you at your fantastic class, but sadly I am in the North West, boohoo, if you are ever demo'ing nearer to me I will be there like a shot. Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. HI Claire. I have just discovered your work and I love it. Thank you for showing me how to use Graphic 45. I love their product, but find it a little busy and intimidating to use. It did not occur to me that I could cut out the graphics and use it that way.

    The corner rounder you used on your photo mats for the Wizard of Oz album, who is the manufacturer? I have looked all over the web for it to no avail.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Alisa, many thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. The punch I used was the tonic studios dual corner punch. I searched on the net and found it on Amazon. The Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper Tool-Stub/Deco Cut is the same.

      Happy crafting

  7. Hi Clare! Gorgeous projects ...wish I was close enough to come to a class of yours { but across the BIG Pond is a tad far away haha}.

Thank you for helping me see g45 in a whole new light! I did a travelogue album similiar to yours which I have posted on my blog I gave you full credit for all your awesome talent!

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
