Crafty Creations with Bohemian Bazaar and great ideas for cards

It was a busy bank holiday weekend crafting with Ali, Ian and everone that came along to the Ali Craft retreat.  We had loads of fun getting messy in Alis Altered art workshop and of course fussy cutting Graphic 45 papers in mine.  It was great to see every one again too.  

I'm sure you've all got some fabulous holiday pictures taken over the summer, so I thought I'd share this bright and cheery layout I put together using all the colourful papers from the Bohemian Bazaar collection and one of my favourite pics of my little darlings. 

Bohemian Bazaar Card - Graphic 45 
There's some creative card ideas with this and two other G45 collections over on their blog today! These cards are great for any occasion and so beautiful! Romy has got creative with a fabulous Bird Song card, Arlene's made a splendid Steampunk Spells Card and I used more of the bright and cheery Bohemian Bazaar paper for my card.  

Catch up again soon with some more crafty goodness. xC 


  1. lovely layout Clare, such vibrant papers, is the class still on at Daisy Jewels, nothing on facebook and no contact with what to bring on the day

  2. Hi Clare, love the photo of you and the boys...oh and the papers are fab too.....hope you are Jo. X

  3. Hi Clare, So glad the retreat went well, I know it would have been fantastic.
    These projects are fabulous, I am loving the cheery citrus colours of the Bohemian Bazaar paper pads.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Gorgeous LO Clare. I bought quite a few of these papers last month. Although they are bright and a touch gordy I think they are just what you need at this time of year and perfect for Scrapbooking with, I get fed up sometimes of using dark Steampunky papers and need a bright alternative.

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
