Sort it out Woman! BOGOF!

Sort it out Woman! BOGOF!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Been blitzing my artroom today. What a mess! A real shambles actually. Honestly, I have never been great at filing. When I come back from a show or a demo day, I just dump all the craft gear, and dash off to the next job, saying I’ll come back to it later – as I skip off into the distance… Thing is, if you keep doing that, you end up with this: After a…

Daisy Daisy, give me your answer do!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Been clearing up from Friday’s Facebook LIVE Moment of Clarity, when we put those cool Lino-cut stamps through their paces. Did you join us? We’ve decided to have another stampy Craftalong session with them on Wednesday, June 2nd at 7pm. So that will give you plenty of time to order them if you haven’t already got them. I’ll let you know ahead of time what else you’ll need to join in, which ink pads…

Lino cuts – A cut above.

Lino cuts – A cut above.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Did you join in yesterday evening on the Moment of Clarity Craftalong? We took a second look at those wonderful butterflies by Cherry Green. Stamping on parchment certainly is lovely. The properties of parchment – the stretching, the whitework, the erasing of colour, the perforating – all these things contribute to a real arty experience. I find it very creative and relaxing. And the result of that stamped black lineart on parchment always seems…

Beautiful Butterfly Wreath

Beautiful Butterfly Wreath

Hi there Thanks for popping in. We thought we’d do something special this week for our Offer of the week. The Butterfly Wreath was the first Groovi Plate we designed – and it is still our most popular plate. In fact, Paul used the plate in the Groovi Tuesday SHAC for weeks when we launched that Facebook Live Craftalong. Lots of you asked us whether we could turn the design into stamps. Answer: Yep! So here we have it. The…

WIGIG on Aisle 7!

WIGIG on Aisle 7!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. What can WIGIG stand for, they wonder…well, please allow me to elaborate. A couple of weeks ago, we – the Clarity Crew – were having one of our weekly Zoom meetings, and Tom mentioned that we have got quite a few overruns of stamps and stencils etc. Then Leanne added that there are other very useful things where we have just a handful, but we ought to consider discontinuing them, to free up space…

Trees and Flowers

Trees and Flowers

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Monday’s blog is Trees & Flowers, right? So let’s take a look at a rather special tree. This design is called “The Happy Couple” I drew this tree for our Wedding Invitation, as a paper cut, and we actually laser cut all our invites. Then, several crafter-friends mentioned that it would make a nice die – no sooner said than done! And that is how our Clarity Fresh Cut Dies were born: out of…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Was filing away my stencils and having a general sort out the other day. Came across this lovely one: Dandelions, by Mel. I love this one. There’s something just so charming and simple and arty. I must have loved it from the very start – because it’s been made into a die, a stampset… AND a pair of Groovi plates!! We used these designs in a Craftalong on HOCHANDA too. Who joined in? The…

Time to reflect…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Have been keeping busy and staying with my hands this week. When the head starts to wander down paths it really ought not to, I find an arty crafty session always redirects my thinking. My stinking thinking!! How about a simple step by step today, highlighting those excellent new Reflection Landscape masks which I talked about in the SHAC Shac yesterday. We have been working on these for a while now, and the result…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Happy International Women’s Day !! Thoroughly enjoyed creating our tall flowers, with the lovely leggy stems in the SHAC Shac today! Did you join in?

Really easy way to make a greeting card, isn’t it x It occurred to me while we were turning the stems into words, that we do have a…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Went to the office today for a design meeting with Lovely Lucy and Lisa. Great session. I love working with two such creative, switched on, easy going women. Nothing is too much trouble, and they always see what I see. We are definitely cut from the same cloth when it comes to design! It was Mel’s work we were getting to grips with. Always such magnificent and original art. More will be revealed. And…
