A Crafty Weekend in Cornwall

Hello my lovelies from an overcast but warm Cornish coastline.  I tootled down country on Friday, stopping off in Cheltenham to see Harry Bean for a catch up and lunch and after a bit of a hiccup and an unplanned trip home (!!!!!) headed down to Bodmin for last weekends workshop.  What a fab time we had.   Julie & Julie thank you both for setting up the unit for us and ladies thank you all so much for joining me for a fun weekend of crafty escapism. How time flies when you're having fun. Here's a few pics of everyone crafting away and our projects projects coming together.
Our projects, all available from my website were: 
  • Portrait of a Lady 11" Album and Case 
  • Midnight Masquerade 11" Album and Case 
  • Vintage Hollywood Event Organiser 
  • Botanicabella Album in a Box 

 Julie altered one of our Planner Kits in Alice in Wonderland fabric - it looked fab 
Glynne, Gail and Emma it was great to meet you and Diana you were a star.  We'll be arranging a workshop in the Torbay area over the next couple of months so if you' d like to come along and join me for a day of crafting in Devon keep an eye on the blog for more details. I'll also be arranging more crafty dates with Julie in Bodmin, so again keep calling by for details of those too. 
We're off to have a bit of lunch at Kynance Cove so I'd best shake a tail feather and get off the laptop lol.  Have a lovely day yourself, whatever you have planned and hope to catch up with you again over the next couple of days. 
I'll be back home and teaching this weekend at Scotch Lodge Farm, Northampton. Looking forward to seeing you if you re coming along :-) 


  1. Beautiful photos as always Clare!! Love all the projects the ladies worked on, so jealous wish I were attending also. Take care.

  2. Good evening Clare, Love your photographs. I know I say it every time - you can always tell that everyone has had a great time by their huge smiles and I have to say their projects look fab! I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that maybe one day we will see you again in our part of Yorkshire. Love the photo of Kynance Cove. Brought back a few memories from my childhood. We visited there on a school journey many moons ago! Thanks for sharing. 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
