Altered Gift Caddy s by Nicky

ABC Primer Altered Gift Caddy by Nicky 
Happy Tuesday to you.  Is it a back to work kind of a day or a just getting on with the jobs one.  Mines a bit of both here :-)
A little while ago one of my lovely customers, Nicky bought a couple of gift caddy kits from me and turned them into fabulous home made lemonade kits for her children to give to their teachers at the end of term.  Altered in papers from the ABC Primer collection she really did make the perfect gifts.  they really were the perfect gifts for the summer break.  Before wrapping them up Nicky added a homemade lemonade kit made up from a small kilner jar of caster sugar, a wooden lemon reamer, an old fashioned school milk bottle, four lemons and a recipe card. Boys I hope you enjoyed giving them to your teachers. 

Our gift caddy are really versatile and with Christmas coming up would make perfect hampers.  Here's the link to them over in the shop 
Well its onwards and upwards for me, off to the post office and then back to create another project before tea time lol!!! Heres hoping ...... enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to catching up again and announcing our August giveaway later in the 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.

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
