Introducing the Craft Maid ...........

Morning everyone, it's a right wet one here but no thunder storms yet, or did I sleep through them lol!!  Its been a funny old week here, I've been doing things I should t be doing and not doing the things I need to be doing for my retreat next weekend, but on a positive I have managed to alter my latest product to be added to my Alter Me' range of craft kits.  
After years of crafting in next to no space, papers everywhere, no space for the paper trimmer and hours wasted trying to find stuff I"m sure was just there when i saw it last, I found I wasn't alone when talking to other paper crafters. I've looked at many products on the market but couldn't find one that did everything I wanted, or in the right size so I decided to design my own that tidy's everything up off the table, takes up half the room of one 12 x 12 pad and gives us more space to craft and think ........ and here it is............. introducing 'The Craft Maid'

You can stand your papers up by size, flick through them without having them all over the place, store your crafty tools and find them when you need them The drawer is really useful to store the pieces you've cut out and want to save to use later.  I"m sure there are many other uses for it but mines all ready and waiting for the latest papers from Graphic 45 papers to arrive so I can get organised and more importantly get crafting :-) 
My finished sample has been altered in truly vintage papers from the Playtimes Past collection by Graphic 45.  A pad I was keeping for a rainy day :-) Today was that day.

  2. This is genius!!! Forgive my dumb question, but is the preorder for a kit or a tutorial? I would just like to purchase a tutorial if that will be available. Thanks!

  3. This is perfect Clare and looks like it would do the job for us all!!! What a great mind you have!!!
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Oh Clare, Once again you've created a project that is beautiful, useful, and, most importantly, fun to do....even on a rainy day! My fingers are itching to get started! Thank you for sharing your inspiration and creativity with all of us!

  5. Hi Clare, Wow !!! this is really useful and fabulous, and I'm really loving the paper collection you have used.
    I hope you managed to get all the things done you need to, I have been baking yet again as it is our Rose Queen crowning tomorrow at Church and we always have a buffet lunch afterwards, so I have made a chocolate cake (it's like 'death by chocolate' hahaha). Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. This looks great Cl;are. really useful for an untidy crafter like me!!

  7. Beautiful way to Organize. I am at the end of a lengthy home renovations, and it is the two things I miss, Paper Crafting and Organization.

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
