Thanks for popping in!
HAPPY SUNDAY! Or should I say HAPPY GRAY SUNDAY?! Thank you so much for supporting us through our GRAY FRIDAY SALE. It’s the Sale of the Year here at Clarity, and it helps us massively to bridge the December lull into January.
And so it continues today, too. In case you were thinking about going back to the Clarity website, to see if there was anything else you might fancy, or want to build a stash up, we thought we’d not just say thank you, but DO Thank you.
If you spend £30 or over today, we will automatically add a lovely little Gift Tag stamp as a gift to you – by way of appreciation.
I did a little step by step, to show you how pretty it is, too…
I used one of those lovely little Bijou cards with envelopes and embedders, that Dave cuts out for us on the Windmill press.
- Stamp the tag using black archival ink.
- Fold, trim and cut the corners
- Use one of the lighter grey pencils from our Polychromos Set of 12 Essential pencils to create a drop shadow.
- Add the yellow centre.
- Use the light pink to add colour to the ribbon
- Add depth with a darker grey from the set
- Punch a hole, thread a string – and done.
- Make more !
You could add faux studs to the criss cross centres too, but I ran out of time. It’s been a pretty hectic week, a bit of a scramble.
So yeah. A little thank you, a little freebie gift, to lure you back in for another nibble!! Before the prices go back to normal tomorrow.
The TV shows went well, and I think the new format with the bell was fun. I just thought it would be livelier than trawling down the counter – especially with so many sale items ! If you watched, let me know what you thought. I have received very positive feedback so far, and think the bell and separate demo concept may have legs going forward. I was speaking to our dear friend Dean Wilson yesterday, who’s a total pro when it comes to shopping TV, and I told him about it, the ding ding bell, and the short snappy demo injections. He immediately called it Presentertainment. Brilliant response. He’s such a clever bloke.
Another thing I did yesterday, which took pretty much ALL day, was prepare this year’s Annual Treasure Hunt for December on our website. You know, we hide little characters all over the website, and then feed you daily clues to find the guys and their letter. Like a virtual Advent Calender. Then all the jumbled letters spell a special message. It’s something many enjoy, and it’s really harmless fun.
But boy oh boy! It takes some working out and thinking. And yesterday was the only day I had free to sort it out. So lots of rhyming and verses, and searching for good places to hide the little characters.
You’ll love it this year! We’ve had Elves, we’ve had Gnomes. This year, we’re inviting you to help us find – wait for it – our penguins!! They are sooooooo cute!! Linda Williams drew these little fellas! CLICK HERE for this little sampler set.
Actually, there’s a superb set of Penguins in the sale, including stamps and dies, which might interest you, if you like funky cute. CLICK HERE to investigate
That’s it for today, friends. I’m busy ticking boxes, and the Monday SHAC and what we’re doing in our Thursday Craftalong is next up! Never a dull moment…
Head on over to the sale if you fancy another bite of the pie and a free stamp ! I was blown away by the bargains when I was trawling through the website with my Penguin friends yesterday!
