Happy Easter

French Country Egg Stand 

Hi Every one 


I'd like to wish you all a very Happy Easter, thank you for following my blog over the past year or so and to share this pretty egg stand I picked up from Rob (AKA Mr MDF) at the Hobbycraft show a couple of weeks ago. Here's the link to his web site. 

I took the blank stand, painted it with red Kaisercraft acrylic paint and then when dry inked all edges with walnut stain distress ink to give the piece an aged look. 


Then I took papers from the new 6 x 6 Patterns and Solids pad, the 12 x 12 Montage paper for the sides, the chicken border from the 12 x 12 Bon Apetit paper, a sticker strip and a large chip board piece and transformed it into this really pretty egg stand that's now in my kitchen.

Just for decoration I painted the eggs white and then crackled using the IndigoBlu crackle glaze stamp.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the celebrations :-) C

  7. Morning Clare, WOW, this is stunning, stunning, stunning, these papers were meant for this project, so uplifting, I love it, but then again I love everything you do ha ha.
    Have a lovely Easter, I was at Church Services for most of the day yesterday, I'm exhausted this week, after all the preparations and services at Church this week, but yesterday seeing the Church in all it's splendour, was well worth all the cleaning involved, it looked magnificent.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

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
