A BRAND NEW CLARITY CLUB is BORN

Hello there.
Thanks for dropping in!
Let me brighten this otherwise gloomy looking Friday 
with some pretty good news.


Last Friday, we talked about the New Designs Club, 
where it started and how it has grown over the years.
Thousands of you enjoy this monthly dose of Clarity stamp-art.

Well, today marks a new milestone.
It occurred to me that stencil work is so very different to the art of stamping. Stencils are very diverse, and lend themselves to  
so many other new applications. Whilst stamps and stencils certainly live alongside each other, I think it’s time to explore stencil art more fully.

So another lightbulb moment, and while the Clarity Team sighed, “here she goes again”
and Wanda - she who runs the club - just stared at me blankly,



I pressed on undeterred.

I am very proud and pleased to present the
NEW DESIGNS STENCIL CLUB


Just like the New Design Stamp Club,


each month, we will design a new stencil, 
exclusively for Stencil Club Members. 
This will be mailed, together with a fab full-colour 
step-by-step pictures tutorial sheet.

The same Club perks apply:
10% discount on all Clarity purchases
1/2 price members only sales
Free Stencil and Tutorials Storage Folder 
(the large one!)
So now we have not one but two Educational clubs; 
one for stamps and one for stencils. 
They are independent of one another, 
but compliment each other, too. 



Stencil Club cost? 
£58 for the whole year. Same as the Stamp Club.
BUT...
If you are already a member of the Stamp Club, 
and you decide you want to join the Stencil Club too,
 then you will pay just 
£40 
to become a 
CLARITY GOLD MEMBER
And there’s an added bonus for GOLD MEMBERS:
Free P&P on all orders all year round 
(UK mainland only, orders over £10)
If you order from us once a month, then that savings alone just about paid for the Stencil Club.

The first Stencil Club instalment will be in JUNE.

To join, you can

a) go to our website. 
(To secure the special price, you will need to log on as a member)

b) phone Jan at the office on 01732 868215.
(Office hours Mon-Fri 8am-5pm)


And don’t worry about the two clubs not being in sync 
Wanda is doing a fine job.
Seriously folks, let us do the worrying!
YOU just enjoy the journey!


To those of you who aren’t in the club yet,
but think maybe NOW is the time,

you can also do so via the website.

 join the stamp club
join the stencil club 
or join both together


much love,

  2. Done it! You have done it again, Barbara. It has been incredible to watch how Clarity has grown and developed since I first met you at the Wollaton workshop last year and was persuaded to buy the Gelli plate. You are certainly cooking on gas, full throttle. Long may it continue! xxx Maggie

  6. Fantastic news! The ND Stamp Club is amazing and I'm sure the ND Stencil Club will be too. You can count me in. Just think of all the money I'll save with free P&P. I'll be spending it on Clarity goodies instead! Thank you. Xxx

  9. I love the idea of the stencil club Barbara, but not sure that I can afford to belong to both and I have only just joined the stamp club, but this is definitely one for the future. x

  15. Awesome. I too shall be Going for Gold as soon as I luft my carcass outta this bed. Brilliant idea Barbara - yet again!! Xxxx

  16. What fantastic news. I will be joining later once I have got up! I also have an idea - what about a Clarity badge for club members? Is it feasible? Is it possible? I would certainly buy one if they were available and I am sure a lot of other members would too.

    I realise you would not be able to make them inhouse (unless they were made of shrink plastic. Lol) and would have to outsource them. The cost might be prohibitive.

    Love,
    Rosalind x

  18. You rock, cool idea. Can't wait for June,

  19. Good Morning Barb - I love the ideas - especially the Gold option - as free P&P will be worth its weight in 'GOLD' (pardon the pun) I agree with one of the comments above about a special members badge(s) - one for each of the options - that will be handy to wear to shows when shopping!!! and I would proudly wear mine at the workshops - I have tried to do the upgrade link but it will not work for me - am on a macbook air? can you check it out as it may just be my end!! Barb I really do wonder where you get your light bulb moments but you keep em coming girl!
    Love Kimx

  20. Morning Barbara that sounds wonderful I think I may be joining! I like having the clubs staggered as my stamp one is Christmas and May will be birthday so it will work fine for me. Thank you to the lovely Wanda for sorting us all out, I hope she gets a pay rise! Hope you manage to get some time to relax over the busy weekend. Your lightbulb needs to keep going ping! Love Diane xxx

  25. Hi Barbara. Yet another great idea : ) By the way, I love the ostriches, they always make me smile. Have a great weekend. Take care.

  26. Hi Barb,
    Fantastic idea and I've already signed up! Love my stencils! Fantastic to have free p&p all of the time too!!! Just wished I hadn't ordered my wheelie and chessboard stencils yesterday! Pleased the stencil club starts June as my NDC is October so that spreads out the cost as I couldn't afford both together. Thanks Barb, love Alison xxx

    ReplyDelete

What a great idea Barbara, my son came in from uni yesterday and picked up one of my new Clarity Stencils and said "mmmm 350 micron, I have to say I am impressed mum" I told him he should be Barbara only does good quality, and I am sure that is what your new Stencil Club will be, good luck with it Barbara, and thanks for such a wonderful idea xxx
