Petallo and Xyron Blog Hop Week

Hi peeps 
If you've visited the G45 blog this week you'll know we have a fall themed blog hop running. We all received some of the fabulous products from  Petallo and Xyron in our last DT boxes and have been beavering away on Fall themed home decor projects using flowers, adhesives and Graphic 45 papers.  Click the links above to go over to Petallo and Xron web sites and then just click the blog link to see the projects that have been showcased so far this week.  There's one more day of crafty creativeness tomorrow too. 

My project is an altered MDF chocolate basket from Pink Tulip Creations decorated with papers from Happy Hauntings collection (2012 release) by Graphic 45.  The flowers are from the Darjeeling collection and these and the leaves are all by Petallo.  The project is held together with Xyron adhesives although you can't see them they are doing a great job holing everything together. There are more pics and supply list for my chocolate basket over on the blogs linked above. 

To celebrate this week Graphic 45 are giving away some amazing prizes this week to celebrate this blog hop.

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
