Time for Fun with Altered Clocks

Mother Goose Altered Clock
Hi every one and happy Friday to you all

If you're this side of the pond you may recognise the clock above.  It's one of Robs fabulous MDF blanks that I decorated with the new Mother Goose paper collection by Graphic 45.  I love the bright colours in this colleciton and the images throughout the paper have a truly vintage feel to them.  I used 12 x 12 papers for this project and the inside of a matchbook book for the extra detail on the lid. 

Theres more info on my project and another fabulous altered clock by my teamie Nicola Battiliana made using the 12 days of Christmas collection over on the G45 blog today. Just click the link here to go over and take a look. 

Happy papercrafting everyone and have a great weekend :-) 


  1. Morning Clare, I have just seen these gorgeous clocks over on Graphic 45 Blog, I love, love, love, the way these clocks have been altered, the papers are stunning and complement, perfectly, the beautiful clocks. I'm really loving the cheery Mother Goose papers.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  2. This is soooo Mary Engelbreit and I love it. I just gotta get that paper!!

  3. How bizarre, im picking up one of these clocks on Thursday at the show in Manchester! I plan to use my luscious steampunk spells papers on it.

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
