Thanks for stopping by on this glorious, Groovi Saturday!
You may have seen on Facebook and the Clarity website that we have today launched a week of all things Groovi!
If you spend £40 or more on Groovi products, you will receive this brand new Christmas Tree Groovi Plate
So to start the week off with the celebration of all things Groovi, I thought I would show you some things to do with frames.
One of the many great things about our Groovi system is the interchangeability of the plates – how you can mix and match and swap them about, just like a big box of Lego
(other building blocks are available!)
Below I have traced out the 4 different “wreath” style designs – Doves, Deer, and the new Santa and Stocking.
They work perfectly as stand alone frames.
As you can see below, I have taken the Stocking design and for ease, I have cut it out. This then allows me to position it within any of the 4 designs – if I was making this as a card, then I could worked directly on the same layer of parchment.
But actually, I really like the cut out double parchment effect!
Ok, so lets go a step further.
When is a frame not a frame?
When it is a background!
So, let’s use our Groovi Plate Mate,
to add a couple of words to our design – don’t forget this is just like stamping and masking, but without the inky mess!
Once we have decided what we want to say,
place the parchment over the design,
Now let’s trace out the stars just as they have been designed to work, remembering not to go through the boxes!
Now its time to freestyle – move your parchment around and fill in the empty spaces – but not the boxes !!!
When you have filled it all in – add your letters – making sure that you work from right to left so that when you flip it over it says “Happy Birthday” and not “yppaH yadhtriB”
Then finish it off with a nice Frame;
after all that is what today’s blog is really all about
– Pick a frame, any frame!
So I have taken the Nested Squares and gone around the outside to bring it all together.
Who’d have thought that the starry starry background here was the wreath that comes with Santa!
Be sure to pop in tomorrow.
I spent a very enjoyable few hours preparing the blog, playing
with the brand new tree
which comes totally free
when you part with 40!
And yes, it will be available to buy.
love & hugs,
