Thanks for popping in. 3 hours in the dentist chair this morning. Just keeping your mouth wide open for 3 hours is bad enough, without all the drilling and cold water spray. I HATE the cold water spray. On sensitive teeth, it’s like torture. Now the drugs have worn off, I really don’t feel that great, so how about a quick step by step from the TV shows last Sunday, using one of those beautiful new Fresh Cut dies, inspired by Tina Cox?
Cut a sheet of our 7″x7″ Clarity Stencil Card into 4 equal 3.5″ quarters. Draw a pencil line diagonally from corner to corner. The die here is from the Happy Birthday Set, isn’t it? See how you position the edge of the die on the pencil lines?Cut the first one, then cut the next one opposite, like so:
One at a time…
If you get little whispers of card, as you can see here, that’s fine. We can trim them off afterwards.
Once you’ve done all 4 corners…
…you end up with a lovely mandala.
Trim the white cross, or you could even leave it in certain areas, if you kept it uniform. Up to you.
Very effective way to change a corner die into a mandala. And you can do this with every single one of those corners above – little AND large.
If you’re into our Fresh Cut dies, then you really ought to consider joining our brand new New Design Club for Dies. 12 instalments starting this month.
Each instalment includes a beautiful new 3″x3″ aperture die, together with a full colour, step by step double project brochure. The projects are created and written by Paul Church and myself.
I write a newsletter each month, too, with all the latest gossip and whatever I think you ought to know!
As a Clarity Club Member you also receive 10% discount on anything you buy from Clarity directly. So that’s worth having too, if you are shopping with us regularly. It’s a proper loyalty scheme; we deduct the 10% everytime you make a purchase with us.
The cost? It’s £10 per month. For the die, the tuition, the newsletter, exclusive member sales, the 10% discount, and free UK P&P. You can pay in monthly instalments, or pay for the year up front, and only pay for 11 months. Why not call the office tomorrow, (01732 868215) and join in time to start with the rest of us in January? New Year – New Club!
You can join online too, if you’re just joining the one club. Here’s the landing page on our website:
If you want add the Fresh Cuts Die Club to other existing clubs, then you should call the office, because they can streamline the clubs for you. 01732 868215
I just had a chat to Jeannine, to see how they are getting on with processing all the new subscriptions, and getting all the paperwork in place ready to stuff parcels and send out. They reckon next week they’ll be ready to send all the thousands of envelopes out. It has been a mammoth task! Please bear with us and be patient. There is so much to do!
One more thing I wanted to flag up. You know I always use the Gemini Machine, right? It really IS the best thing. If you are joining the Die club, you do need a die-cutting machine. If you want to invest in one, then join the club, wait till your club discounts are applied to your account, then come back and get 10% or 15% discount off the machine, plus postage paid (UK). That makes sense.
Anyway, gotta go. Feeling like I’ve done a few rounds with Cassius Clay.
