It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello there, have you got that Friday feeling :-)  I've been working away and listening to the radio today. Can you believe there are only 41 shopping days left until Christmas.   We have an 18th (Harry Baby's) and Ols' 23 to fit in before I can get into Christmas mode.  Have got a few pressies stashed away in secret places though.  Lets hope I can remember where when i go to find them lol!!  
We had a real fun workshop at Stoneleigh last weekend.  Ladies, thank you for joining me for a Christmas themed crafty day.  Was lovely to see you and your projects were fabulous.  Here's a few pics. 
 
 Sally even posed for a 'Mrs O' impression as she bought in the tea tray.  

Saturday night I headed over to meet up with Di and Toni, Mr & Mrs Tando Creative who were hosting a weekend Trade event a few miles away with the uber talented Andy Skinner and Michelle Webb.  Andy I hope you managed to find a secret space to escape to on Sunday lol!!!  Was great to meet you, Michelle, and everyone else I got to catch up with too.  Lovely evening and a great event.  Di thanks for asking me over. 
 
We only have 7 sleeps left until the last of my 2015 Graphic 45 Retreats next week at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth.  I'm getting excited and really looking forward to meeting up with everyone who's coming along. I've spent most of the week designing, measuring, cutting out, writing and filming a new Christmas Carol album, our Saturday/Sunday project and the new on line workshop.  If you fancy making  it the project sheet and on line workshop will be available on my web site from 23rd November.  Loving these Dickens themed papers.  We have two places available due to late cancellations.  If you'd like to come along for a really crafty two or three days, click the link below for more info and bookings. 


Tomorrow I'm back at Scotch Lodge Farm, Northampton for part 2 of our Event Organiser workshop.   I love this project, designed with a file folder on the left, storage space in the middle and a mini organiser on the right (top pic) it's just perfect for so many different events we plan for or want to remember.  There's been a slight delay in getting the Event Organiser onto the web site but it will be available from 23rd November along with the project sheet that goes with it and the lantern kit. 
There's still a couple of weeks left to leave a comment on this months giveaway post if you' d like to be in with a chance to win a lantern kit. Just click the link below and leave a comment.  

Have a great weekend. look forward to catching up again shortly and thanks for calling by :-) C

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
