A Fabulously Crafty Weekend had by all

Morning everyone, what a fabulous two days of crafting we had here over the weekend in Kenilworth.  Thank you ladies for joining me and making the weekend such a great success.  Thanks also to the staff at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth for their support and service. 
By 10ish Friday eve the room was ready, kits boxed up with badges and event tags, shop out and we were ready to role.  Thank you Sarah, Karen, Jashree, Jane and Fran for all your help setting up. 
and then it was ready steady craft on Saturday..............................  lot's of happy smiley faces as everyone's projects came together.........

Kathy late night crafting .............cheers everyone ..........

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday, the hottest of the year so far so I swung past the castle just around the corner from the hotel and took a few pics across the meadow before the start of day 2.  
Day two always fly past too quickly and before we knew it our fabulous weekend had come to an end.......   
My plan this week is to have a chilled day today to unwind and recharge my batteries and then get all of the projects we made over the weekend, and the new kits up and live on the website, so if you fancy making any of them yourself they will appear in the Alter Me Kits and PDF Tutorial sections of the website shortly.  
If you'd like to join me at my next retreat in November click here for more info and bookings. 
I'm off to do my Mum la Taxi duty now so I'll have to love you and leave you.  Thanks you ladies once again for the best weekend and look forward to catching up with you all again shortly. 


  1. Afternoon Clare, Wow !! Wow !! Wow !! these projects are looking fabulous, and the ladies are having 'the' best time, especially Kathy who was making the most of her time, Cheers Kathy !!

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
