Mini Album and Drawer Combo

Just a quick post this morning before we head off down to Porthlevan for a wander across the beach and a hot chocolate afterwards to warm us up.  I thought I'd share the finished project for the workshop I'm running on June 1st.  Roy (Mr Candy Box Crafts) has designed the MDF blank to hold up to five mini albums, and drawers to hold keepsakes and 6 x 4 photos in.  If you're not able to make the workshop, but are interested in the kit for the project, please mail me at  For more info on the workshop and booking details  click here.

This was Porthlevan last month during the storms that hit the UK coastline.  The town took such a battering.     

Happy Mothers Day to you all, I hope you're pampered today and look forward to catching up with you again tomorrow :-) 


  1. Morning Clare, Happy Mothering Sunday to you, and all Mums out there xx
    OMG, this is stunning, I won't be able to attend the workshop for this, but I would love to make this, so I will mail you. I had sent you an email the other day to the emails address on this Blog ie, now I'm assuming that you no longer have that address, so I will forward my email to you at the address in this post, hope that is OK ??

  7. Good evening Clare and do hope that you are enjoying Mothering Sunday. I just love your latest project and whilst I too would dearly love the opportunity to try this one unfortunately I still have your fabulous Art Deco Handbag to tackle. Me thinks I shall have to add this latest project to my ever-growing wish list! Thank you for sharing this with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.

    PS: For some reason Google Friend Connect is not allowing me to sign on and so I am having to use the eblogger Sign On button at the top of your blog. The consequence of this is that my sign in name (camelot67) and photo no longer appear when I wish to leave a comment and what is worse I am being listed as Anonymous! How rude! Take care x

  8. PPS: It's me again - looks like my comments were a little hasty because there I am for all to see!

  9. This is really cute Clare!! Wow what a video showing your storm surge! I always hate to see anything destroyed and we have no control over weather, water, etc. Hope there wasn't too much damage. I am tired after my 3 day scrapbooking retreat even though I don't scrapbook that much! I am more in to altered art, cards, etc. Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day and that you really enjoyed your weekend!! Talk to you soon!

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
