Sharing some new projects....

Voyage Beneath the Sea Altered boxes and Photo Frames by My Creative Spirit Graphic 45
Altered This N' That Boxes and Photo Frame set 
Hello my crafty friends.  I can't believe it's been a week since I grabbed a coffee and sat down to blog. I've tried to take some time out to catch up on myself, create a couple of new projects for Graphic 45 to be shared next month, tidy up the web site stock, do the accounts and a whole host of other things that all of a sudden needed to be done. Sometimes I wish there was more than one of me so I could get everything done in a normal working day - but sadly there isn't lol. 
The warm weather has bought visitors.  Next door is being rewired and the lovely workmen have had the radio blaring and all doors and windows open.  Mine have been shut tight as I've tried to work. There have been some feathered comings and goings in the front garden for a week or and now much to my horror we have a nest, eggs and perky birds taking turns to sit in our lovely ceanothus bush right outside the front window.  
Much as I'd like to get out and trim back the hedge next to it I'm thinking I might set off a scene from the Birds ......  so trimming has to wait for at least a month for the pesky birds to have their family and get gone.  Harry says I'm too nice and should just rid.   
Anyway, I've finally uploaded three new project sheets onto the web site.  The first is for the 6 x 6 Enchanted Forest Album, a lovely little album decorated in jewel coloured papers. 
The second is the Event Organiser, File Folder and Organiser altered in the sea coloured papers from the Voyage Beneath the Sea collection by ....... guess who Graphic 45 :-)  

and the third is the file folder and organiser from this set as a separate project sheet. 
All are available in the project section of our website.  

Full kits for everything you need to make the whole project are also available on the website - just click here.

  3. I love your work Clare, so inspirational!
    All the best

  4. Hi Clare. Fabulous new projects, and all your samples are, as always, stunning !!
    I am so glad you are leaving your pruning until Mum, Dad, and Babies have 'fled the nest' I think that part of nature is fascinating. We have a nest in our large shrub which grows up the side of the pergola in the corner of our back garden, and I have had to keep my cat away while the Mr & Mrs Blackbird have been rearing their young, Lizzie (my cat) went to jump the fence behind the pergola a few weeks ago and the racket Mr & Mrs were making at each side of the fence, both with beaks full of worms to feed their young, so have kept Lizzie going round the front instead, now they have moved their fledglings to a lower nest, so Lizzie now has her back garden back, that is until they 'mate' again later in the year haha. I love this part of nature, it fascinates me.
    Enjoy the rest of your evening.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Good evening Clare. We too have birds nesting in our gardens but our problem at the moment are marauding Magpies, Sparrow Hawks and, for the first time ever, huge Crows! I know they have to feed their young but I’ll be blowed if they get any of our little ones. Whenever they come anywhere near our gardens my OH and I are like screaming banshees - making as much noise as possible. God knows what the neighbours must think! Anyhoo….I love your latest projects - thank you so much for sharing. Take care
    Margaret A.

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
