A crafty weekend at the Birds in the Barn Summerfest

I travelled further east than I've ever been on Friday night, to be up bright and early on Saturday morn and join Janet and here team at the Marks Tey Hotel for two days of crafting at the Birds in the Barn Summerfest 2014.  I was invited to run two classes over Saturday and Sunday and boy did we have some fun. 

Saturday took us By the Sea in true Graphic 45 style making my little book in a box
and in our Sunday class we got the paint out, altered our Candy Box Crafts handbags and made a mini album to go inside them
It was lovely to meet everyone who came along, catch up with friends, make new ones and of course have a great time crafting the weekend away.  Huge thanks to everyone for coming along to my classes and to the lovely Janet and wonderful team of ladies for all your help over the two days, and for putting on such a fabulous event :-)  p.s. Loved the egg sandwiches Lyn, thank you:-) 

After my weekend away it's back to the drawing board today, I'm working on two new on line workshops this week with the Come Away with Me and Eerie Tale collections.  Enjoy whatever you get up to yourself and look forward to catching up again later in the week.

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
