Bureau and Pocket Album Artisan Style

Good afternoon everyone.  I've got a few minutes to spare before heading off to pick son No 2 up from a hard day at college being creative so thought I"d grab a cup of tea and share my latest project with you. 
The Bureau and Pocket Album is our weekend project I'm teaching at Daisy's Jewels and Crafts over 30th and 31st May.  I started with the base kit yesterday, and have altered the bureau and finished the pocket album in just over 24 hours, with a sleep and time off in between so am hopeful we'll get everything finished in the two craft days.  I've used papers from the Artisan Style collection by Graphic 45.  I love the colour combinations and making the pocket album was fun working the different colour ways together.  I couldn't go too mad with the pages as the album has to slide into the shelf under the top section and above the cabinet, so kept them simple ... ish!"  Here's a few more pictures.......... 

I think there are a couple of places left if you fancy a crafty weekend in the Coventry area.  Call Wendy on 07779 110813 for more info and bookings.
For those of you who'd love to make the project but can't make the weekend, kits and the project sheet for the Bureau will be available on our website from 3rd June. 
Well my mug is empty, its just gone 4 so I've got to love you and leave you and head off to Leamington.  Thanks for calling by, enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and look forward to catching up again 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
