Portrait of a Lady Album - My Creative Spirit

Morning my lovelies, how are you?.  Good I hope on this wet and chilly Monday morning (well it is here) It's been a busy couple of weeks here, we took the shop off to the Craft Show at the Motor Cycle Museum last weekend.  It's the first time we've had a stand there and had a great time demoing our products and meeting lots of peeps too.  Huge thanks to Sarah & Cathy for all their help and support in setting up and running the stand, what a great team :-) and thanks to everyone who called by the stand too.  We'll be back at the show on Saturday 6th September.

This weekend I was out teaching a Graphic 45 workshop with Wendy (Daisy's Jewels and Crafts) and the lovely ladies and gent who came along too.  We crafted my Curio Cabinet into shape using a variety of Graphic 45 collections and had a whole load of fun along the way.  Here's a few pics of them coming together - can you spot the Tropical Travelogue papers David had in his stash.......

Thank you Wendy for arranging the event and to everyone who came along too.  Look forward to seeing you all again at the next one. 

New Product 

If you love the Portrait of a Lady collection you may be interested in making my latest album from the collection. This papers in this collection are just gorgeous to craft with and give you a truly vintage feel to your projects. The album combines the 12 x 12 papers, patterns and solids, ephemera cards and other elements, is full of interactive pages, places for your photos photos and journaling too. I love the colours in this collection and really enjoyed designing the album.  The PDF Tutorial is now available on the website.  
I'm off to catch up on all that came in over the weekend so will sign off for now.  Have a great rest of your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again later in the week :-) Cx

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
