Thanks for popping in.
It’s so sunny out there, we really ought to make the most of it.
But I wanted to share the latest with you.
When we were in France, the Groovi experts,
aka Maria and Sylvia,
mentioned that we really should have some concentric shapes
for framing. I wholeheartedly agreed with them,
because I had also noticed that it’s all very lovely
embossing the fab Groovi Designs on A5 parchment,
but then what?
The Borders and Edgers are great, but require a bit of eye-balling, and wouldn’t it be so much easier if we had a ready made frame, which we could simply put in place in which to then create our designs?
Jim has been busily constructing and preparing these for us:
Far enough apart that you can add detail in between two sizes.
Then we decided that this might work well too…
that this fine netting would make a superb background,
and Mel’s carp fish were a must make!
Finally, to round off the new Groovi Wave of plates and ideas,
we made these two exceedingly useful extension borders:
One has the months of the year, numbers 0-9 and Dates,
the other sports The Whole Family.
These ones are particularly cool.
The font is very delicate and has a lovely modern flourish.
So you can write any birthday,
anniversary or special date for any member of the family!
It works beautifully with the little ABC on the Bunting border too.
So that’s it.
Now we’ve got the shapes and apertures down,
we can go back to the Groovi more intricate designs.
These were all loaded onto our Clarity website this morning.
Will they be on TV tomorrow? No.
But I will have some beautiful snowflakes to show you !
They just take so long to make! Worth it though.
Must go and pack the car and skedaddle up to Peterborough.
I’m on my own there this weekend.
Dave is busy making these new plates!
Oh, and building a machine room for the next 3 laser machines which are arriving next week!!!!
love and hugs,
