Oh Joy!

Oh Joy!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How about taking a closer look at one of the projects from Sunday’s TV show, using the Nursery Rhyme ABC Stamps? It’s a real simple one, but a great technique if you haveinvested in the Victorian letters or the 12 Days of Christmas numbers. Pick a Designer Paper to stamp on. Here we are using Amazonia. Let’s not waste it either…cut out the middle with a nested square Fresh Cut die. Then we can…

What’s the Story, Jackanory?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Jackanory. Who remembers Jackanory? I LOVED it!! I would wait patiently, legs crossed, in front of the TV every afternoon after school, and wait for the story.

How times have changed. Back then, an adult – mostly a…

That’s why we stock…

It’s using our Clarity Heart Backdrop Stamp, the large one. First combo-trick. Let’s use Artistry Ink pads for this one. We carry a good selection of the colours; I think they work brilliantly dry AND wet….

With Love & Best Wishes

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Spinning plates here. So many things in the pipeline, so many ideas moving through and taking shape – so many things to consider, remember, factor in.

How our little Clarity Crew manages to pull this off week on week, month on month, year on year, is quite astounding. It ain’t easy, I know that for…
