Claire Murphy – Documenting December flip through

Hi everyone, it’s Claire here with an update on my December Documented.

I can’t quite believe that I have managed to finish my December Daily!  Every year I start and usually end up finishing it between July-December the following year so this is definitely an improvement.

I can honestly say that the reason I managed to get it completed within the month of December (well slightly into January if I’m being honest) is due to the foundation work that I put in before December started. This was partly down to the amazingly awesome cut files from Pretty My Page. I would have completed a whole album with just cut files if I could have done!!

I hope you like these snapshots of some my completed pages using the cut files. I used the “numbered Mugs” for some of the daily numbers. I even made one into a pocket by adhering them back to back around the edges.

There are so many different techniques to try with cut files and I think I used most of them in my album. I backed with paper, I backed with acetate and I even adhered to acetate to make a clear page too like this one using the “6×8 Diagonal Stars”.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
