Happy All Hallows Eve


Happy Halloween everyone.  Its all dark here and Trick or Treaters are calling by in their fabulous costumes.  Hope you have a great eve if you're off out yourself. 
I had a great weekend teaching down at Scotch Lodge Farm, Earls Barton.  Ladies thank you for coming along and thank you Isobel for inviting me.  It was such a hectic weekend I clean forgot to take any pics at all on Sunday but here's a few of the ladies crafting and cutting into the really beautiful Off the the Races Papers taken on Saturday. 

I'm just prepping demos for my shows on Hochanda on Wednesday at 6 and 9pm and thought I'd share one of the finished samples with you.

hope to see you out the telly box 
 I've taken one of my large This N' That box kits and blinged it up Finabar style.  I've not made anything like this before so was really pleased with how the overall box looked when I'd finished. All the sides and lid pieces started off as white card and after assembling the box using my black construction tape I started to alter the box as follows: 
Step One was to add texture paste to the white card side and lid pieces through a couple of masks. Step 2 was to paint all the masked card in Antarctic chalk acrylic by PaperArtsy and once dry stick in place on the box.  Step 3 was to position and stick all the elements to the lid.  Step 4 was to mix the two mica powders with water and spray all the pieces. Step 5 was to add the glass glitter. Step 6 was to paint and add the metal knob to the lid and Step 7 was to paint the wooden feet and stick them to the bottom corners of the box. Hope you like :-)

  5. Interesting to hear that Halloween trick or treating isn't just an American tradition. I obviously need some more educating on the subject. Beautiful card!

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
