A La Mode ..........

I hope I find you well on this Sunday morning.  Ours is a wet one again and my plan to sand down and paint the front door the new colour we've chosen and change the brass fittings for silver ones has gone out of the window lol! so it looks like I'm going to have some crafty time on my hands around cooking Sunday lunch. 

Today's box card was made for a mix of 8 x 8, 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 papers from the Gilded Lily collection ... another gorgeous release from G45.  The card is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" and the front is raised on concertina sides to give the relief effect I was after. The front is decorated with the reverse side of Gilded Lily 12 x 12 and the pink arch cut from patterns and solids. The cut aparts are great for adding characters and making a scene and this collectors full of them.  I got carried away with flower cutting, love the lilies and dog roses.  For the sentiment I used an one of the phrases from the Her Majesty 12 x 12 paper and the Paris stamp to add another element before highlighting the arch with a little crystal Glamour Dust for a hint of sparkle. Est voila another sample for the TV shows next month is done :-)

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
