A Jones Crafts DT Project in true vintage style

hellllooo there, I hope you're feeling fine and dandy this morning.  I'm skidding in at the last minute with my Jones Crafts design team project this month.  If you're a real G45 fan I'm sure you'll have seen this recently released and truly vintage Times Nouveau Deluxe Collectors Edition.  It takes you back to the roaring twenties, with revamped papers, new chipboard tags and sticker selection all in one pack.  Thanks Darren for the kit and of course Sandra for posting it out :-)  
My project is a notelet box with three cards and matching envelopes.  I used a red green and black theme and was spoilt for choice with all the fabulous papers to chose from.  The box is made from card and has magnetic closures to hold the lid firmly closed.  The cards are quite simple in their design so they can be used for any occasion.  Hope you like :-) 

and here's what comes in this Deluxe Collectors Edition.  These papers will also work well with other G45 papas you may have in your stash :-) 
That's all from me for today so I hope you have a good day, and look forward to catching up again with you soon :-)

  7. Good evening Clare, I'm loving your latest project and having seen it have been asking myself why didn't I know about this new G45 collection? I guess I'm going to have to pay closer attention in the future. Thanks for sharing this and as always am looking forward to your next project. Take care.

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
