Perpetual Calendar Kit My Creative Spirit Paperartsy
Perpetual Calendar Kit by My Creative Spirit
Happy Sunday to you all.  Classes have started again this week with a fun day at my lovely friend Jane's on Thursday.  We made three cards using Paperartsy stamps and paints and had loads of fun practicing a variety of techniques with inks and paints.  Thank you Jane for organising our day.  Look forward to the next one :-) 
Yesterday I headed down to Birds in the Barn, Marks Tey with a new kit for us all to get crafty with.  Karen, Rachel, Natalie, Tracey, Michelle, Ann and Pam had a ball choosing their colours and altering their perpetual calendars.  Another painty fun day had by all. In Janets' absence Karen laid on a fabulous spread for us for lunch, spoilt us with her amazing cakes in the afternoon and and kept us topped up with tea and coffee as we crafted away the day. Thank you Karen. Pam if you're reading this could you mail me your address ( so I can send you your numbers 1,2,3 and 0 and Janet we all wish you a speedy recovery after your op on Wednesday.  You'll be running around on that new knee in no time :-)  
My new perpetual calendar kit will be available from our website in a couple of weeks. 
From left to right, Natalie, Rachel, Ann, Karen, Tracey and Michelle (Pam had headed off home) 
We're off to grab a few supplies from the Asda so I'll wish you all the best and head off with H.  Enjoy the rest of your day and look afraid to catching up again in the week :-) C My perpetual calendar kit will be available in a couple of weeks.

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
