A busy few days......

Happy Monday, I know I've been a bit quiet on here lately but it's been a busy old week behind the scenes.  Two fabulous workshops last weekend. Back to Peterborough mid week to do the promo filming for Graphic 45 at Create and Craft TV ahead of the US launch of their channel towards the end of the year, and then two great workshops this weekend.   I could do with a few 48 hour days to catch up on all that needs to get done before the end of the month lol!!!!

Saturdays workshop was with Nina at her fabulous shop Crafting Times in Shepreth.  Huge thanks Nina for your hospitality and ladies, thanks for coming along.  It was a great day and lways lovely to see you all.  Here s everyone getting crafty Christmas style with the very festive 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' papers by Graphic 45.  

Sunday I headed off to see Wendy, Jeff and all the ladies at Daisys, Jewels and Crafts in Bedworth for another altered art workshop.  Our project for the day was a Writing Desk altered with Couture Papers, one of my G45 DT projects from earlier this year.  It was lovely to see some of the ladies free styling and following their own style with the pretty Botanical Tea papers too. 
I managed to catch Hillary sitting down.  She usually liked to be caught running through the photos lol!!! 
Who are those cuties peeping around the corner :-) 

After a really enjoyable weekend with everyone It's back to the deadline list for me, fingers crossed I catch up with everything !!  Have a great day , thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up later in the week with some vintage G45 projects, and another Christmas one too :-) C

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
