Craftalong – one and all!

Craftalong – one and all!

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. As promised, here’s a date to put in your diary for the next

CLARITY CRAFTALONG : Wednesday 14th July 7pm

What are we using? Well, I read all your suggestions and requests, as to which of the latest Floral LinoCut Stampsets we should use:

The Alliums, the Teasels or the Poppies…

I was wrong in assuming that you would all want to go with the poppies. Your preferences were very evenly distributed between all three sets!

So. This is my conclusion. Pick ANY of them, pick whichever ones you fancy – and I will rustle up a techniques and tricks Craftalong where you can use ANY one of them ! That way, whether you have just one of the sets or all three of them – you can join in. Leave the Craftalong Content to me xxx

I’ll post the ingredients list next week, when I figure out what we’re doing together! I will definitely be including the trick with the arty backdrop colours! If you haven’t already got the following, I highly recommend that you add these square backdrop stamps to your wishlist:

The Square Backdrop stamps. CLICK HERE

We will use Distress Oxide ink pads on this plate to build an arty, abstract landscape background for the Linocut stamps. Oh yes!! I’ve just had a really good idea!! Yep. That sounds like a solid plan.

Fancy joining me on 14th July? We’ll post more info next week.

There’s a lot to be said for hanging out together, crafting together. Even though we cannot meet up in halls, we can still have a super time together, making the most of FREE YouTube sessions and FREE Facebook Live sessions. Our time will come again, when we can gather together, and craft alongside each other. But for now, it is what it is. And actually, it can be what we make it.

Stay safe,

Love always

  1. I’d love to join in but it takes nearly three to four weeks for me to receive my orders in Spain but I can watch xx

  2. Will be joining you with my Poppy set. Looking forward to the session. So kind of you to organise something everyone can do according to their preferred stamp set. You rock.
    Tried doing a straight line as per Grace’s blog but I think I will have to get new specs – ha ha!!! – wonky doesn’t begin to describe my effort.
    Stay safe.

  3. I have decided to order the Poppies but I would like the Landscape backdrop to go with it but I can only find it with Distressed. Do I have to buy them on their own ?

  4. I ordered the Alium set yesterday using my gift from posting early after the last craftalong so will be all ready for the 14th. Looking forward to it. Thank you Barbara.

  5. Won’t be able to join you live as I have a bowls match and can’t let the others down but have already ordered the stamps and will craft along the following day

  6. I would love to craft along and even got the back drop stamps but as my dog decided to bite another dog and I had to pay £550 out in one go with was my saved money for craft stuff I will have to miss out for a while I can buy anything. Barbara your new stamps are amazing x Anja

  7. Love to join you at that craft a long evening Barbara!
    Don’t have any of these materials and last time it took months to arrive here. So I will watch and all the tips and tricks you are telling us.
    Have a great Sunday evening and see you tomorrow in the Shac.
    Lots of love,Trijntje Huppel

  8. That’s a lovely idea,I’ve ordered the teasles as already have other poppies and alloys (they are clarity think they are alliums might be dandelion clocks now I think of it. Have the backgrounds too so will be sorted looking forward to it

  9. Already ordered. Looking forward to another craftalong. If I get left behind I can catch up with replay, no stress.
    Raining here but no thunder.
    Have a good evening. See you in the SHAC. xx

  10. We won’t be joining in on the eveni8ng session -can’t manage to craft by the evening – but will catch up very soon after as we’ve sent for the linocut stamps and already have the squares. We’re looking forward to playing with them all.

  11. Really looking forward to this Craftalong Barbara. The new stamps look amazing, and the background stamps are a game changer! Thank you so much for doing these sessions, it’s like having a one to one tutorial with the bonus of being able to chat with the rest of the Clarity community at the same time!

  12. Hi Barb,
    Ordered the full set of stamps direct from Clarity and already have the background stamps, so will be all set. Will wait for it on you tube though probably. Love and hugs, Alisonxxx

  13. Hello Barb, sounds like a solid plan then, will pop it in the diary, and try make sure nothing gets in the way. Now just to decide which stamp set to order. Wishful thinking for all 3. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx

  14. I will put the date in my diary – already ordered the allium stamp so should be all set. Thank Barbara for keeping us focused and busy x

  15. Look forward to the craftalong. Just wanted to say thank you for my prize, your book about stamping, which arrived in my parcel on Saturday.
    I think I will be ready for some chilled out crafting by 14th, work being done on our house and it will be messy and dusty but the end result is what I need to keep in mind.
    Love the new Lino cut designs!

  16. Hello Barbara ,
    As you know I rarely comment. However I had such fun at the last Craftalong that I had to say “ thank you” and that I’ve made a note on my Calendar of the next one.
    Chatted to Diane and Maureen via WhatsApp at the last one. Have placed my Order.
    Many thanks
    Love Myra

  17. I’ll have to join in after the event I’m afraid, but my open day order arrived today and the square backdrops were in it, along with a few other bits! Mustn’t order anything else until my office come craft room is installed and the boxes are unpacked! Not long now x

  18. Just catching up with posts from the last few days – very excited for this. My allium stamps are on their way so I’ll be good and ready!
