Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Very busy here, gearing up for the Detling Exhibition in Maidstone this weekend. Not sure how many visitors we can expect on Saturday ! What, with the FA Cup final AND the Royal Wedding, I’d say the footfall may be a lot better on Sunday !!! Paul is demming Groovi and parchment, and I shall be demming stamps and stencils at the show. Becca is running a FREE Groovi Make & Take, and there…

Hang on! said the Chameleon, I just need to change…

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Maria is doing a super job over on Hochanda today, with our brand new Chameleons, Frogs and Gecko. What a fabulous collection of both stamps and Groovi Plates, illustrated by our Melanie. My personal faves are the frogs. I know they’re a bit niche, not the usual butterfly or fairy. But hey!! We have to dare to be different! And when you see the art samples which our ever clever Clarity crew have rustled…

One of those ones which instantly goes into the Hall of Fame Scraps of All Time! I have been sitting on it for ages, wondering how to tackle it. I mean, you can see what I see, right? The thing about scraps like this is…

When Parchment met a Fresh Cut Die…

Hi there. Happy Sunday to you! Thought I’d try something out which has been bouncing around in my head all week….a parchment overlay using one of our new Fresh Cut dies. Let’s see what I came up with, shall we? I’m going with the Queen Anne’s Lace die. Love this one, don’t we Mel ?!? I want. to see if I can cut a delicate die out of parchment. And I may as well add the outer cutting edge with…

The Statue of Liberty has had a new splash of Colour!

The Statue of Liberty has had a new splash of Colour!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. I got cracking this morning, on my LLOTTA (Long List Of Things To Accomplish). Whilst zipping around, I decided to spend the time expanding my mind listening to a new book. Now you may think this is a bizarre choice, but I went with James Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty”. He was the former FBI Chief, whom Trump fired. Well, when we were in San Francisco a few weeks ago, it was all over…

Once in a Blue Moon…

Hi there. Thanks for dropping in. Thursday’s blog is always blue, so here goes: a simple little step by step which I did quickly on telly last weekend, using the Gelpress Petite with ink. Once in a blue moon, the demo on live TV comes out better than the one I have prepped. As was the case on Sunday with this one! Woohoo! A much better alternative to the opposite situation, when the piece you’re doing live goes Pete Tong!…

40 Years ago

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Wednesday’s blog, Mindful Wednesday, when we look at our crafty lives, don’t we? Do you think about the past much? I don’t really. Probably because the present is so full, I haven’t got time to spend reminiscing. And whilst I don’t regret the past, nor wish to shut the door on it, there were some dark times which I am glad are just that – IN THE PAST. After all, the whole point of…
