Cornwall Papercraft Show.......March 2017

Handmade A5 Notebooks Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Morning everyone,  another week is nearly over and the weekend is just around the corner.  I'm looking forward to spending a few days by the sea in Cornwall and seeing everyone coming along to the Cornwall Papercraft Show tomorrow at Lanhydrock Hotel, Bodmin.  It's always a fab show, great stands and a wide variety of goodies to tempt you :-) Free parking too.  Doors open at 10am and close at 4pm.  
Julie's helping me out on our stand (thank you Julie:-) while I run our make and takes.  This year we're making mini stitched notebooks. If you're a G45er Ephemera cards fit perfectly on the front cover.   If you're planing on coming along, why not join come along and join me.  Book on arrival to ensure you get a place.  They always go like hot cakes.  the books above have been altered in papers from Cafe Parisian, Portrait of a Lady and Botanical Tea collections by Graphic 45. I love the Creole Lady on the centre book.  
If you fancy making these little books yourself twin packs of covers and spines are available from our website - click here 
And here's how to assemble them

My plan was to head off to Cornwall yesterday, but Oli went and picked up Harry bean from Uni yesterday so I had to hold off, have a hug with them both when they got in, catch up on all the goings on  and am just about to jump in the car any time now.  Annie here I come lol! 
Enjoy your day, and weekend and look forward to sharing some pics from the show with you over the next few days.

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
