Altered art by the Twinlets

Ladies Diary Picture Frame by Sian and Aime
Had a lovely eve last night with Andys Twins, Sian and Amie.  They wanted to decorate a picture friend for their cousin who's getting married later this month and had asked if I'd help them decorate it.  Siany had been onto the G45 blog done her research and found some inspiration from some Ladies Diary projects and wondered if I had the papers. ?????  Of course I said, new pads haven't long arrived in our DT Box, so we took the frame apart, raided my stash and this is what they made.  Gorgeous isn't it. xx 

 Have a great Wednesday everyone :-) 


  1. Morning Clare, Wow, this frame is absolutely gorgeous, the 'twinlets' have done a fantastic job with this.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia, we had a full twin set here last night. I must stop calling them twinlets as they re 20 lol. They did a fantastic job. I was really impressed with Sians research too. They had agreed and knew exactly what collection they wanted to use and what they wanted the frame to look like. All I had to do was get the stuff out for them. Two more G45ers in the making :-) X C

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
