Be Still…

Be Still…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Busy day at work today. Such a good buzz at Clarity. So many creative minds buzzing and clicking and whirring! We’ve got a lot of loveliness in the pipeline, and there is so much goes into designing a new range of stamps, or a new collection of papers, or a bunch of new stencils. From the sketched drawings to the labels on the packaging. And since we do pretty much everything inhouse nowadays, that’s…

Time for Tea, Coffee, Cake and Crafting!

Time for Tea, Coffee, Cake and Crafting!

Hi everyone! Paul here, I hope you are all well. I am up at The Craft Store studios (aka Hochanda) getting all set to launch a brand new One Day Special at 6pm designed by the lovely Linda Williams – Time for Tea, Coffee & Cake in stamps! You may recall back in March we launched the Groovi version, and if I recall rightly it flew out the door. After the show, we had many requests for them to be…

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!

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…

A few of my favourite things…

A few of my favourite things…

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…
