A fun weekend had by all......

Perpetual Calendar kit altered by Sarah Sunshine :-) 
Evening everyone, I hope you're weeks going well.  I thought I'd share some of the pictures from our crafty retreat here in Kenilworth last weekend.  It was another great success, the hotel did us proud as they always do and we crafted our way through from Saturday morning till Sunday evening, and after a lot of snipping sticking painting and arranging made some gorgeous projects. 
Ladies, a huge thank you to you all for coming along and making the weekend great fun. 
Love everyone's take on their perpetual calendar kits
A very Happy !@£@!  Birthday Jackie

Before I head off for a glass of wine and some TV watching I thought I'd share one of Harrys graphite watercolour drawings with you.  I loved seeing it come to life and was right chuffed when he asked me to colour the sky :-)  
Well that's all for this eve folks.  Have a good one yourself and look forward to catching up with you again soon :-)

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
