During my Crazy Bird phase I altered another one of my 'Box It 'kits in blue and then made 20 matching note cards to go inside. This time I joined the base to the spine and added a black card section to hold the 6' x 4' note cards and envelopes in place inside.  
Such a fun project to make, and so many things you can do with a little bit of ink. I've always had a fascination for inks. Mum was a draftswoman and I remember watching and talking to her for hours while she worked. She had a box of the most gorgeous coloured ink bottles that was kept under a sideboard. They fascinated me, as they has droppers and squeezy rubber bobbles on the lids; so easy to squeeze the ink out - which I think I did all over the carpet. I got into trouble for that ...... along with many other mischievous things I 'm sure. Sarah if you're reading this roller skates and skipping elastic sprung into my mind as I was typing this!!!  Funny what you remember from when you were very small isn't it.  Anyway I digress ...............  here are the cards.

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
