My Little Paper Doll Book

My Little paper Doll Book Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Hello there and happy Sunday to you.  I'm sharing my latest make here on my blog and You Tube channel today.  The latest Penny's Paper Doll Family collection by G45 took me back to when I was small and fun filled days cutting out the paper dolls that came in the Twinkle comic - my regular weekly read ........ shout if you remember it too:-) 
This relatively quick and easy little book to make as a great gift or stocking filler for any little person who loved to dress up paper dolls.   the book has two pockets, magnetic dolls that can be mounted on the pocket fronts and lots of outfits to dress them up in and colour too. 
 There's enough paper in the pads (I used sheets from the 12 x 12 and the large patterns and solids pad) to make a few of these little books too. If you'd love to make one yourself I've put together a PDF Tutorial to go with the project available from my website via this link
 If you'd like to see the full project just click on the video below. 
Our October Giveaway will launch on Wednesday so do call back then and leave a comment to take part. 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again soon.

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
