Little Darlings!!

I don't think I've ever made a pink baby card, so rather than going out and spending a fortune on something special I challenged myself to make one for friends that have just had their first baby.  
For this truly vintage looking card I used pink papers from the 12 x 12 Little Darlings collection along with cut aparts and cut out images mounted on an 8 x 8 kraft card.

  6. Morning Clare, I love, love, love, this baby girl card, it is stunning. I keep having to make baby boy cards and always use the Little Darlings papers, they are so stunning, I need someone to have a little girl, or maybe I will make a girlie one to keep for myself, that sounds a brilliant idea ha ha !!
    Lots of love from Patricia.
    PS Clare, don't even think of going out to buy a card ha ha !! xx

  10. Such a pretty card Claire - I just love it! Like so many others having finally tracked down the Little Darlings collection I had to get two sets, one to use and YES! you guessed it, one to leave in a draw and take out every now and then and stroke lovingly!

    By the by, I stopped by the Graphic 45 blog earlier today and came across the wonderful news! Many MANY congratulations on being chosen for the 2013 Design Team - so well deserved!!

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
