Come and see us at The Handmade Fair Ragley Hall

Helloooo there everyone, how's you're week going?  It's been sun sun sun here which made for a great Bank Holiday.  Thank you to everyone who called our stand at the Motor Cycle Museum Craft Fair on Saturday, it was lovely to see you all. Harry thanks for all your help - what a team :-) 
Harry Charvill with My Creative Spirit
He's coming back for more this weekend and joining me for three days, in a tent, in a field on our stand at The Handmade Fair, Ragley Hall.  
The lounge looks like we've just moved in, with an ever growing mountain of boxes, crates, racking and shelving. Tomorrow it's all moving out, into the van as Oli and I head off to Ragley to set up stall. They are good to their mum don't you think.  !!!!!  
I'm really excited to be involved in the Fair and have everything crossed that the weather stays warm and sunny for us all until Sunday eve.
There's been a lot of new traffic calling by the blog over the last week or so, so if you're new here here's a bit of blurb about me......................
I stitched my way through the 70s, 
knitted my way through the 80s, 
sugar crafted and taught through the 90s, 
raised a family through the 00s, 
found papercraft in the 10s 
and in 2013 pulled all my skills together 
and set up my own papercraft business

These days I enjoy life surrounded by beautiful papers, chipboard and MDF,  and spend my time designing unique craft kits, projects and tutorials for you to decorate and create your own beautiful keepsakes, taking inspiration from the paper collections by Graphic 45.  
If you're coming along to the fair, do call by and see us in the shopping village, stand SV20, we'd love to see you. We'll have a selection of kits from my unique range, a selection of Graphic 45 collections, basic crafting tools and my Monthly kits too. 
Here's a peek of some of the samples:

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
