A Frameless Beauty

A Frameless Beauty

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in. Sorry I am so late. Very long day at work today. Loads going on, lots of planning and designing and talking and general activity. Blimming good day actually. I love my team, I really do. Clarity is full of creative, kind individuals.

So here’s a little Youtube that Simon and I filmed together just before he and Becca went off on their honeymoon. I hope you enjoy it. It’s a lovey dovey stencil, perfect for that young happy couple – and perfect for Valentines too. Spreading the love….

Now I must dash, because Paul is on the HOCHANDA TV channel, doing a Super Saver One Day Special with our brand new 12” x 12” Designer Paper pads. Well, 2 of them! Northern Lights and Indian Summer.

Did you see the beautiful scrapbook page Paul made on the 6pm show, with pics from our wedding? Made me cry. Always have been one for tears. I shall never forget this moment at the wedding, when my lad Mark told me (and the rest of the wedding party) that his old mum was the one. “It’s always been you Mum. You’re the one.” Gulp.

Love & Hugs,

  1. Awww what a lovely thing to say to his Mum. I loved the scrap book layout that Paul did with your photos. I am looking forward to doing a scrap book page (or two…or three) with my papers when they arrive. 4 of each design means I can cut one up for cards, two for a double page spread and one left to stroke! Keep up the great work Paul and will be watching Maria tomorrow with the new stamps. XX

  2. Evening bloggy firends, hope everyone has had a good Tuesday. My recorder is set to record Maria tomorrow, please leave a set of stamps for me. XX

  3. Busy day eh? That means more fab stuff has been thought up and planned… Can’t wait… Bring it on.
    Paul is a star… He is so calm and collected in his approach. And his scrapbook page of your special day was perfect. But then the day was perfect wasn’t it…. Beyond perfect actually!
    I love that stencil… It completes the set really well. And it will be getting used in making some of the stationery for Amy’s wedding in July. I am so glad I bought the die too as she’s asked me to make thank you cards now too!
    Have a lovely evening.
    Love and hugs xxx

  7. Hi Barb, thank you for the youtube, much appreciated. It’s added to my long list of ones to watch! Way behind, but I’ll get there…!!!
    I had Paul on telly at 6pm but wasn’t able to focus on it, so I’ll watch my recording later, which I’m sure I’ll enjoy.
    Hope you’re taking some time out for yourself during your long days!

  8. Paul came up trumps again today, humour as well as skill. I have ordered the two 12 x 12 pads, hope we get the other 2 soon. So many ideas running around in my head.
    Not in to scrapbooking but liked what Paul did with your photos, beautiful.
    Have a good evening.

  9. Love the small paper, love the big paper. Really enjoyed your YouTube. I’m going to try it both ways. Glad you had a good day.

  10. Paul was brilliant, as usual. Love the new size of paper pads and they will go on to the wish list. Have a good evening and enjoy pottery tomorrow. Hugs. Annette. X

  11. Just watched the YouTube for today. Wow! Liked the embossed look of the first one and the second was so colourful, we need lots of colour to brighten up the crafting world at the moment. Xx

  12. Hi Barbara
    Oh blow I forgot Paul was on tonight, I will catch him tomorrow though. I’m sure these paper pads are flying. The photo is lovely, what a wonderful thing for mark to say, I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I’m off to watch the you tube now.
    Love Diane xxx

  13. Hi Barb, still have to watch the shows with Paul, love what Mark said to you, how touching for a Mum. Off to watch your video now. Take care all. Bx

  14. That brought a tear to my eye too, and I’m not his mum! Will have to watch the YouTube later, as I’m running a bit late today. You must all be spinning with all the extra shows you’re taking on. How about doing some “Clean and Simple” or “Speed crafting” cards and makes for those of us with busy lives – might make your show prep a little quicker too? x

  15. Sharing this stuff makes your daily blog a joy to read….rough with the smooth…..thanks Barbara. You too are a joy. #keeppushing
