Weekender Offer and workshops

Altered shadow Box Paperartsy Style by Clare charvill
 Good morning and happy Sunday to you. .... well it was when I started writing this little post lol!!  
I'm a real late starter this morning after a busy day yesterday with Isobel and her lovely ladies at Scotch Lodge Farm.  We were making Once Upon a Springtime albums to go in the altered boxes we'd made a couple of weeks ago.  A really fun day crafting with pretty papers had by all. Lovely to see you ladies and thanks Isobel and Patsy for the hospitality. Pics below.  We agreed two new dates in October/November for another double project with some of the new released from Graphic 45 that will be showcased at CHA in July. 
If you love the Once Upon a Springtime Papers and would like to make the project too the kit and project sheet for the altered box and album are available over on our website 

 I'll be with Janet at Birds in the Barn on Friday and Saturday this week for a couple of Paperartsy style workshops.  We're getting inky altering my A4 Shadow boxes with stamps and stencils by JOFY, Lin Brown and Darcy.  If you fancy a crafty day and would like to come along and join in the fun call Janet direct on 01206 211099. You get a white gel pen, black fine marker and one of the two stencils we're using as part of the kit for the day too.  

Before I go I thought I'd give a quick mention to our three for two weekender offer on all our on line workshops and project sheets finished at 12 midnight tonight. Here's the link if you fancy a browse
Enjoy your Sunday, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again over the next couple of days.

  5. Just when I thought that I wasn't going to buy anymore G 45 papers until I had finished using up what I already have; you show us these wonderful albums made by the ladies, and I want them. The Once upon a Springtime papers look fabulous; but , aren't all of G 45 's ? Tidied my craft 'wardrobe' out yesterday so will have room for them now. Incidentally, my clothes are on the floor!! Off to put the washing out as it looks like a reasonable day today; makes a change from the hailstones and rain which we had yesterday. Take card Clare. Hugs xx Pauline A

  6. Clare, are you going to have an on line workshop for a Once Upon a Springtime album? I have been slowly purchasing your online workshops and have now told a niece that I would make three albums for her daughters! Mother Goose, Precious Memories, and Once Upon A Springtime! I love your albums. They and you are the best!

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
