Christmas come early

Hi there!

Thanks for popping in!

Well, the retreats are well underway already! It was very warm today, but the group persevered, and we had a packed but good day. There was something for everyone, I hope! Photos to follow…..

Anyway, tomorrow, whilst we crack on with the second day of, Maria is on TV at 12noon  and 4 pm with our new and improved Christmas round stamps. The artwork is so delightful, we have relaunched it in a smaller, neater format – perfect for smaller cards and batchmaking!

  1. I was loving the design team pieces and then got very excited when I saw that they are coming in Groovi as well, as I am not a stamper. They are gorgeous.
    Glad everyone enjoyed the retreat and maybe one day I will be able to attend. Have a good evening. Annette X

  2. Oh, they look so pretty. It would be nice to know how the beautyful project were made as I am not a stamper. Have a nice evening.

  3. Glad everything went so well today but we knew it would. Looking forward to my turn on Wednesday. I spent this ever-increasing on the law at the back of the Spa, looking at all the fabulous artwork. Clarity really does have the best design team. Hope to see folks at breakfast tomorrow,then watch Maria’s shows. xxx Maggie

  5. What a clever and imaginative design team you have Barbara. Samples are something to aspire to.
    Thank you Barbara for bringing us great products to work with.
    Yes it has been hot again today, no doubt the weather will break just as the school holidays start.
    Have fun tomorrow

  6. These look great and so pleased to see the smaller stencils. Just right. Our bags are packed and already to set off tomorrow to join in the fun on Wednesday. Looking forward to whatever you have in store for us. xx

  7. Looking forward to the shows over the next few days. Thought I was going to be able to sit on my hands but then I realised you have shrunk the designs so they aren’t the ones I already have !!!
    We have had a quick shower tonight so the air is a bit fresher & cooler. Hope it stays that way as the heat is so tiring.
    Looking forward to seeing the retreat photos.

  8. Oh WOW Barbara,
    New smaller stamps and stencils, and now all available in wonderful Groovi too. You really know how to spoil us xxxxxxx
    The art work from yourself and your design team is amazing. Could do with instruction sheets to accompany each one!! Absolutely stunning.
    Have fun at the retreat days
    Love & Hugs

  15. Hi Barbara
    Good to hear the retreat is going well and it sounds like everyone is having fun. The samples from the design team are fantastic, you do gave a clever bunch of people. Will have to record Maria, work gets in the way of crafting doesn’t it.
    Love Diane xxx

  16. Wow! What lovely designs from your fantastic design team Barbara. I think the smaller stamps will be very useful. Sooo looking forward to the end of the week for the ‘Grande Finale’ of the retreats! Meeting new people and of course seeing you and the lovely Paul again. Can’t wait! Than you Barbara for being so generous with your precious time. X

  17. Such lovely designs from everyone. I’m so sad to be missing the retreats this year but maybe next year if I can get the dates before the guests start booking for their summer holidays! I’m sure everyone is having fun and learning a lot. Enjoy xxx

  18. Thought I was going to get away with not buying anything more this month but these designs are so tempting. Love the smaller stencils. Do I get stamps (batch making) or Groovi (for pleasure)? Decisions, decisions!!! Will wait until I have watched the ODS before ordering.
    Glad the retreats are going well despite the heat.

  19. Hi Barb and team ,
