Coming up later….

Hi there Thanks for popping in. It’s Pottery day today, so I am off to potter shortly! But I am also really excited about the new Filigree Stamps and Groovi plates that our Maria is showcasing this evening at 6pm. They are right up my street! So I did another little card this morning, using a painty scrap and the BEAUTY pair. Time to go to pottery now. I was thinking about spending the afternoon on the wheel for a…

Look it up on You Tube.

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! Still at work here. Trying to do some forward planning, although I seem to be burying myself in art and ideas here! So I thought I’d surface for half an hour and come chat to you! Yesterday, I blogged that Alcohol Ink piece with the Treescape stencil: and a couple of you asked me how I did it. I thought I’d send you to our Claritystamp YouTube Channel. It contains a substantial library of…

On the Buses..

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Late again, but what a great day we’ve had! On the buses!! At 8.30am we stepped out of our house. At 8.32am – bang on time – the bus to Churchill Square, Brighton came along. “2 returns to Brighton please,” says I. Driver: “How about a family day out for £10, and you can use all the buses in Brighton all day too?” Barrrrgin!!!!! Ten quid?? 5 squids each?? A one and a half…

One Day at a time

One Day at a time

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Late again! The days just seem to fly by at the moment. Is it me, or does time speed up as you get older? But inbetween skipping from one job to the other, this afternoon I took the time to sit in the garden and soak up a little sunshine – and it was lovely. Simply lovely. There’s nothing like a cup of tea and a five minute pause for thought in the garden……

E for Easy Groovi

E for Easy Groovi

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Wanted to share a very simple Groovi piece I made recently, using one of those fab new funky framers that Linda Williams has come up with, combined with one of my floral Groovi ABC plates – the E for Edelweiss. I opted for one of the tangles frames… Very simple to complete. No cutting involved at all; just some basic whitework and colouring in. Coloured in from behind with Pergaliner pencils, and blended with…

Wow. What a Clarity Birthday!

Wow. What a Clarity Birthday!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Haven’t drawn breathe all day. This is the first time I have had time to sit down and taken stock! What a day! It started with Leonie’s Clarity show, where her new stamps sold out in 12 minutes. Then the Fresh Cuts Weekend Wow with those wonderful new dies from our Mel blew the doors off. And finally, the Groovi floral numbers and the Groovi Floral ABC went crazy. Paul is doing the 8pm…

Have a look at these dies closely, really closely………… can you see how much snipability each design has? What do I mean by snipability? Treat your scissors like a pair of pruning shears and snip away at different areas and you will end up with something…

Let me introduce you…..

Hi everyone I hope you are well. Despite the up and down weather here in Kent, it has been another fun-filled day at Clarity Towers. With lots of meetings, lots of planning, both of which have proven to be very productive. As a result, there are lots of exciting projects on the horizon! (yes I know I am a tease!!) Anyway, this week as part of the “Monday Meet Up” feature, the guys in the office had a chat with…
