How to use our Construction Tape on your 3D projects

Top of the morning to you and a very Happy St Patricks Day 
 hope you're weeks going well and you've achieved all you set out to so far!!!  I'm not sure I have. 
I did manage to sit down yesterday and film a short video on how to construct a 3D project using our range of black construction tape.  I've been talking about doing one for a while and can tick it off the to do list. 
I altered one of my tag boxes in a couple of papers from A Ladies Diary collection by Graphic 45.  If you're G45aholics you'll know that this collection was out a few years ago and was huge sought after. It's been re released this year as a Deluxe Collectors Edition with digitally enhanced papers, some new designs, chipboard pieces and stickers.  I picked a couple of papers to alter my project in.  
and here's the video on how to use the tape, assemble and alter a 3D project. The tape is perfect to assemble flippy floppy lids too. If you get in a mess with glue and paint you'll love it :-) 
Our Construction tape and tag boxes are available to order from our website at
I'm off to wait for the UPS man, pack up kits and work on another Ambassador project for Graphic 45. Enjoy your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to sharing our weekly winner and new theme for our Scrapbooking Party with you tomorrow so do call back :-) C


  1. I watched your new videos this morning Clare and was fascinated to see you use the black tape to put everything together. As I said I want to try it on a mini album using it between the spine and front and back covers!!! I love the G45 papers a Lady's Diary too, in fact I ordered the new packet I have decided I could probably open my own store with all that I have, lol and am sure I am not alone!! Have a great day and thank you for sharing your wonderful tips, etc.

  3. The tape looks great Clare, I must give it a go. I normally use construction strips a la Jim Hankins and paint. Thanks for this.

  4. Marvelous video. It has given me a strong need to do one of your creative projects. Thank you for the clear instructions on using the wonderful black tape, I really need some for myself and my future products. Beautiful work Claire

  5. Very awesome post, It is outstaring blog. anyone read more online books please visit here

  6. I agree with you Clare, as well, I have used Graphic 45 papers for a long time and I hate deciding what side to use. I really hate cutting into the signature piece to use the back of it!! It's almost painful, lol. Beautiful papers to me sure and thank you again for your videos!!
    Luv, Luv, Luv,

  7. Hi Clare, I'm loving seeing your projects here, they are beautiful. I'm off to watch the video now. I'm the same as Judy above, I have Graphic 45 papers that I take out and 'stroke', I almost don't want to give the cards away for Birthdays etc, so I have decided that I will scrapbook with them so I can keep them to 'look at' I know that sounds selfish, but I love them haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. I love it Patricia!! Yep it's hard to part with them!!

  8. I so enjoy your instructional videos! You are always so inviting and unpretentious...very comfortable to invite into my viewing life. Thanks for all your tips. I'm positive I can do such a project myself. Thanks!

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
