Craft yourself a funky photo wallet

Safari Adventure Photo Wallet Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Good morning and a very happy Sunday to you.  It's all quiet here, kiddiwinks are still fast alseep so I thought I'd grab a coffee and do a bit of blogging.  Its been a fun week and now my laptop is back, up and running I've been on a roll with projects and videos. We've had happy mail arrive too all the way from Portland Oregon. 
Before I share todays' project with you I must send huge thanks to Diane, Charee, Aimee and all the team at Graphic 45 for packing up and sending the awesome amount of products that have just arrived all the way from Portland, Oregon.  I've shared them all in a video over on You Tube (link below) so you can see the fabulous range of goodies that we can craft with and will be sharing some crafty ideas on how to use some of them over the coming months too.  

Now for todays project.  I was having a mouch through some old projects, came across the Christmas themed photo wallet I made way back and thought I"d create an updated version using the Safari Adventure collection from G45.  I've added a wider side to give more room inside and had a load of fun snipping into these gorgeous papers - only after stroking them of course lol!!!  I'm loving the Tiger in the collection, and just had to use him on the front cover. Of course you could make the project in any papers - I'm just a G45 a holic lol!!!! - really I hear you saying..........!  Here's a few pics of the finished wallet and video links (down below) to the 2 videos if you fancy making one yourself.

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
