a fabulously crafty weekend

evening everyone, hope you've enjoyed your day.  I had all my fingers and toes crossed this morning as 8 o'clock approached that the builders wouldn't return for another week of drilling next door. Oli was just home from his first night shift and needed to have a good sleep.  Luckily they didn't.........  so Oli got to sleep while I worked. 
I've been unpacking my bags from the weekend too.  What a great time we had at Daisy's Jewels and Crafts.  Huge thanks Wendy & Jeff for your fabulous hospitality once again, and mahusive thanks, Pat, Leslie, Angie, Hillary, Michelle, Jane, Jenny, Sharon and David for making the weekend the funniest I've had in a long time.  Hillary if you're reading this have you watched the Peter Kay Car Share episode yet!!!!.  
In between all the banter, cake, more cake and the Eurovision Song Contest we constructed, painted, snipped and stuck our projects into shape. Here's a few pics  

and here's some of the finished event organisers 
altered by Leslie in Enchanted Forest and Voyage Beneath the Sea papers
altered by Hilary in Enchanted Forest papers
altered by David in Rare Oddities papers
Loved it and look forward to seeing you all again on 9th July.  We're making one of my drop front box and album kits and altering it in your choice of papers. The sample below has been altered in papers from the Enchanted Forest collection.  If you'd like to come along and join me for the day contact Wendy on 07779 110813 for more info and bookings.  

Well that's all from me for this eve my loverlies. Times ticking on and I need to get some beauty sleep lol!!! Thanks for calling by, have a great rest of your week and look forward to catching up again shortly :-) C


  1. Such lovely work, it looked like a fabulous and funny weekend! x

  2. Morning Clare, I'm so glad that Oli managed to have a sleep after his first night shift. You must have been panicked in case the builders were back and making a racket again, thankfully Oli was spared that, let's hope it continues peaceful !!
    Wow !!! lovely piccies of your weekend workshop, and these finished 'works of Art' are truly stunning, and lovely to see a man joining you all too. I love his choice of papers for his projects too. Everyone looking very happy, I bet they all had a fabulous time making these stunning projects in these truly gorgeous papers !!

    A note to say thank you for running such a wonderful weekend - thank you

    Love seeing my creation in your blog - very very flattered - thank you. This morning involves finishing off the books - I have been fussy cutting last night (get me with my crafting terms)

    I am checking my diary for your next workshop at Daisy's - it's a great place to craft and Wendy was such a good host, with nothing too much trouble and a great cuppa whenever you needed one

    Again - thank you


  5. Good Morning Clare, I do so enjoy seeing your photos after each workshop. Everyone always looks happy and are able to take away such fond memories of meeting new people and having something that they created (with your wonderful inspiration of course) to take home and cherish forever. Congratulations to all those who took part; your work looks amazing. Take care Clare.
    Magaret A.

  6. looks like you had a fun weekend, Clare's workshops are always great. Sorry I missed it but I was busy sunning myself in Arran. Back to reality now.

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
