Vintage Hollywood we come!

Helllooooooo there, is it Friday already?  WHOP WHOP!! I've completely lost track of the time this week beavering away on a few projects here, one of which is the new addition to my little collection of folio albums.  Altered in the 8 x 8 pad and patterns and solids from the Vintage Hollywood collection by G45 it captures all the fun of the movies in true glitzy style of Tinseltown. As I was crafting away the oranges, greens blues and golds reminded me of Clarice Cliff pottery......... love her designs.  
 There's definitely lot's to like about these gorgeous papers including some fabulous darker papers that create a great backdrop for the brigher ones;
For the cover of the album I decided to cut out the lovely starlet from the signature sheet and make her the star of the show, adding a little glitter and glossy accents to the flowers and border and them mounting her on an orange background........... I love that orange :-) 
We have a PDF Tutorial to go with the album and a video of the full album too - see links below.

I also added a video on an alternative way to put album covers together using our Black Masking Tape; 

Well that's all from me for this eve, it's nearly time to grab a coffee and settle down to watch my weekly fix of Graham Norton.  Have a fun weekend, thanks for calling by and  I look forward to sharing more projects with you over the next few days :-) C 


  1. Oh Clare this is lovely as usual, you do create beautiful things and I love the way you describe them. Your cold sounds like it is finally leaving you so hope you are back to norm soon and can have a restful weekend. Thank you for your talent and inspiration!

    1. H Judy, thanks for calling by. Great to hear you like the latest album. It was a fun one to make for sure. I think you're right on the cold front thank goodness!!!! Will be glad to see the back of it. Enjoy your weekend :-) C

  2. Hello Clare, you are a fountain of talent! Your black masking tape is a clean and dry alternative to edging an album or folio and the like. Thank you ever so much for sharing your knowledge and skill. Your tutorials are always mesmerising. Cheers, Adam.

  6. Hi Clare, Wow !!!! This is a fantastic album, I love the colourways in this collection, G45 are always 'spot on' with every collection. I'm off to watch your videos now. I've been having 'no internet access' problems this week, my hubby had to ring up Virgin this morning because I was getting withdrawal symptoms from my laptop haha. Thankfully and fingers crossed, it appears to be working now !!!!
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  7. Lovely album, the colours are so vibrant.

  8. Hi Clare
    Yet another theme of papers I want to sniff and stroke !
    You have such a calming style when showing how your albums are put together that nothing seems beyond our capabilities the way you describe them.
    You really do encourage us to have a go too!
    A great way to start a Sunday morning for me a lie in watching your tutorials in a nice quiet calm house !!
    Thanks again Clare
    Ps love the black tape, you were right a great must have to my stash!

  9. Hi Clare, Having just returned home from having lunch out with my OH I've been relaxing on the sofa watching your videos and I have to say your latest album is just fabulous. The Vintage Hollywood collection looks terrific so I'm guessing this is something else I'm going to have to add to my ever growing wish list. Do hope you are feeling better after your cold. Take care.

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
