Thanks for popping in. Well today’s the day. Back in the old Create & Craft building all day. Early start, late finish. So nothing new there!

Since it will be the first time I’ve been on this TV channel since 2015, let’s rewind the clock and shout about our Award winning, all singing all dancing Groovi Starter Kit.
Did you know that we launched the Groovi system on Create & Craft on 7th June 2015? Yep. We’ve come full circle here! Except that we’ve evolved and grown so much! The Groovi System has gone from strength to strength – and today’s Starter Kit is a much improved (Mark III) Starter Kit!
As we’ve improved the Groovi range, together with traditional parching experts Linda Williams, Tina Cox and Josie Davidson, we have not only introduced beautiful designs, new ideas and clever innovations; we’ve also kept going back to the Starter Kit and adding to it!
Remember when we purchased Pergamano in January 2017? Never in a million years did we see that coming either, but what a game changer. So yes. We may be showcasing the Groovi Starter Kit, but 6 years of tireless designing, teaching, working, innovating and developing now underpin it.
Also, just to celebrate, we will be giving away a free Butterfly Wreath plate with every Starter Kit too. Because it was one of the very first plates we ever designed! And it’s still one of our best!
In addition to the Groovi Starter Kit, I will be showcasing some of my favourite designs from Tina Cox.
Then during the Crafting with Clarity show at 6.45pm, I shall be slipping into a comfy pair of slippers and playing with the amazing Clever Corners – a pure Clarity Classic! In fact, these were the very first stamps I ever showcased on Create & Craft. I’ll never forget. It was a Thursday morning show in the month of May. I think it was 2007. Martin Parker was the presenter. They say you always remember the first time!
So I thought I’d take them back on the same channel all those years later! Just to prove that they are still every bit as good as they were then! In fact, just like the Groovi Starter Kit, they are vastly improved! Unmounted, sharper crisper fineline art, and far more corners to the pound. Yep. 15 years on, and they are less expensive than they were then! You can’t say that about many things, now can you?!
The simple Special Day Sentiments Stamp Set is also on the show. Always was a firm favourite among cardmakers. Still perfect for so many occasions.
We are always forging ahead, designing new new new. But some of our best designs are older designs. So when you’re going on what is ostensibly a channel full of brand new viewers who have probably never even heard of Clarity or Barbara Gray, then we really do need to put our best frock on, get the best crockery out and serve the best of the best Clarity Classics.
So I hope you can join me on Friday for some fun, laughter and crafting!
