NEW GROOVI BORDER MATE - Away with the Cellotape !!!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.

Here we are, getting all revved up for the Clarity Open Days 
here in Crowborough on Friday and Saturday,

And it’s no good. 
There is something brand new 
we’ve been holding back for the coming weekend.
It can’t wait. Have to show you now.

I have been moaning about having to cellotape our
Groovi Borders to the Groovi Plate Mate since Day 1.
Well no. 
Day 2 actually, when I had to pick all the bits of cellotape 
off the Plate Mate after Day 1.

NOW THERE IS A SOLUTION.
Ready?
Introducing...

The new Border Plate Mate, 
designed by our Jim.





Blimming beautiful!!
Obviously, the numbers & flourishes border comes out, 
so you have a slot large enough to take all your other borders.


Not only is it a perfect holder for all the borders we’ve been designing and you’ve been collecting for the past year;
It also provides the most delightful ABC and Numbers
upper case and lower case.
See the ornate box at the bottom of the border?


this is just the right size for housing initials or monograms:
next to each other,


or entwined.


And the flourishes on the numbers border really are excellent 
for decorating and illuminating.


There are four Groovi swirls.


So if you are coming to Crowborough, 
you know what is waiting for you.
And if you’re not, then 
to order yours today!

So happy to report that we no longer have to cellotape 
the borders to the Plate Mate. 
Now they have their very own home.

Have we spilled all the beans and burst the Crowborough bubble ?
Are you kidding ??? 
Wait till you see the borders Tina has designed !!!

Love & hugs,
Barb

  15. Hello my lovely friends, I'm Zebedeeing as I write this, WHEEEEE!! Thank goodness for my Clarity Cushions! I have got myself back on track today, with bad memories safely and firmly locked away again. Finding that little bit of joy each day is how I've always got through...and WOW! what a joy today!!! I knew some sort of holder for the borders would be so useful, but I never imagined anything as brilliant as this.
    By the way, Billy Elliot was wonderful. It's actually something that my hubby would have enjoyed, being an ex-miner. So I've done the next best thing for him..and ordered the musical on DVD!!
    I hope you've all had a good day. Love and Hugs to you all xxx

Hope you are coping with your pain Sheila and that you feel a little better. Great news Phobe is doing well Donna, oh the awful cone things, they hate them don't they.

  25. Love this ! I reckon that's the reason (sub consciously) that I haven't used the borders a lot. I really have more than enough - but can you have enough - to do more designs than I'll ever dream about but hey ho!

  28. Hi Barb,
    Wow, I'm so pleased that you have brought this out.mi have to say attaching the borders with tape was the only thing I didn't like about Groovi and now it's sorted - thank you. Really loving the font on the alphabet. I've placed my order already and I think there must be a few of us doing the same cos the website was a little slow! Don't know if you read my comment yesterday as I was late but I was asking if you are doing a cover for the light panel? I thought I'd heard you say it but I could've been dreaming!

    1. Hi to all my lovely blog friends,
      Hope you've all had a good day. It's been a nice day here and at the moment it's beautiful. My sister has just texted me from Switzerland to say it's pouring down there. In fact it was so nice this afternoon, that I sat outside and made a Groovi card using the music plates and really enjoyed doing it. Not finished yet but well on the way. I've put my order in for the border plate mate, just couldn't resist! My problem is, I have no willpower ( or money!!). Sheila, hope you've had a good day. Donna give Phoebe a big cuddle from me. Anne & Pam thinking of you both, Brenda hope you've had a good day. Love and hugs to each and everyone of you, Alison xxx

  30. Hi Barbara, love it, at the top of my next order list. Thanks for sharing it with us. Boy is it made a whole lot harder for me when it's open day /retreat time. It's good you all have the choice and ability to go to something if you want to at some point in your life at the least. To even just go out, have people you love and who love you. I just wish that sometimes I could be allowed a bit of that in life. Don't squander what you have and what opportunities you get allowed the choice of in life. Have fun and pay attention to the good, whatever that may be. Love Brenda xx

But you certainly do have people who love you. I fully realise that it's not the same as having a physical presence. Just reading your words each day is enough for us to know how lovable you are, and it was impossible for me, and so many others, not to care about you very quickly.
      We will all be at the campfire later, I'm sure, to share in your birthday. Lots of love and huge birthday hugs xxx

Since the CFS/ME - it has been impossible for me to do a lot of things - but I realise that I can still do a lot more than you are able to.

    10. Thanks everyone, and thanks for all the special words (I don't deserve them), and early birthday wishes. For some reason I seem to (what I call)get inside people, get inside their hearts, and it makes people care and want to go that extra mile for me. It happens with people I've had helping me. I don't know why, I'm nothing special, but it's nice that some human beings have felt/feel that way about me even though it's just for a short time xx

      Sheila, you've got an excuse, sorry, REASON for treating yourself to new Clarity products most weeks!!! ;-) Maybe you should sell your services to all those with partners who don't understand the need to buy all this stash we have!!! Hope it's not too hard for you to get through until your hospital appointment xx

      Pam , I'm thinking about you xx And Anne and her daughter too xx

      I didn't even notice Maria was on hochanda or new plates comming out I will look and let you know gilly what I think I've just bought the new boarder plate I bought a couple of clarity stamp sets off crafters companion on Friday as they had 40% off ends tonight .
      I know I'm been foolish at present as I'm struggling so much with pain in all of my bones my left hand is so swollen my finger bones hurt my little pinky is all out of shape and my hand is delved in as my wrist is swollen too my GP says he cannot up my new meds without the consultant giving him permission and he dosent want to give me a steroid injection as it will mask the symptoms because he is a new consultant on the NHS he needs to see my symptoms I know 3 weeks is not long so grit and bear it till then .
      My GP says it's a very debilitating illness if worse comes to worse I can give away my clarity craft because I have many other illnesses your not just battling one oh dear I think I better go to sleep or I will have you all in tears night tomorrow is another day hugs xxx

      Delete
    10. oh Sheila, please don't get yourself so down and be thinking you'll never craft again. Yes, it's a very debilitating illness, BUT there are good treatments which can keep it in check, for a lot of the time anyway. You've not started that journey yet. Please think positively, and wait and see what the consultant says and offers you, and how that works. You already know you can feel a lot better than this, look how well your steroid injection helped. If that's the only thing that helps your rheumatoid arthritis, you'll be allowed them again. The consultant needs to assess you at your worst so they can work out the best course of action for you. It's the only way it can be done I'm afraid. You must be suffering bad, it's an awful pain to have. Try to count down the days. Every day, or part of day you get through is another step towards your end goal, of finally getting the help you need with it. Take care, and please do something nice today, even if it is just sharing remembering some good memories with Tom, or watching a move or something that you really enjoy. And keep unloading to us as much as you need to xx

  45. This looks like a really good idea & a fabulous design - love the font. I think I'll need to treat myself to this. I have another dose of chemo tomorrow so unfortunately won't make the Open Days as usually in a 'fog' for about a week. But I have booked onto one of the Retreats as should be all finished by then. Soooo looking forward to it!

  46. Oh wow! So very pleased that I am coming to Crowborough this weekend. What a beautiful font for those letters and numbers. I'm so pleased that you've made a border plate as I just couldn't get on with the celotape option.I was only saying to someone the other week that you must surely be developing something for the borders. Hope you've got lots of them in stock. Thanks for letting the cat out of the bag. love and hugs, Jeanette xx

  47. These look lovely and Mr and me have collected quite a few border plates so this would be ideal.

    We have tickets for Friday, however my StepDad (85 years young) has suddenly had to go into hospital today and we're not sure how long he'll be there. My Mum has to be cared for so not sure if we'll be able to make it.....

    I do hope we can as both looked forward to this trip (all the way from Spalding, Lincs) for quite a while now........fingers crossed not a long stay for Harry and nothing seriously wrong.

    1. Thanks Pam, he was supposed to come out today, however, he went all wobbly when time to leave so they have kept him in again.

      We are really disappointed that we can't be there tomorrow, but, Mum and H have to come first - suppose there will always be another day we can come xx

  50. Hello Barbara
    Oh you are spoiling us, what a fabulous invention ( thanks Jim). I must investigate this further. What a shame, my brother in law was so taken with his birthday card ( torn paper hills, moon and boy with birds stamp) he asked me how I had done it, then looked on the website for the things he might have to have. I've been kind and I've offered to order a few things whilst they are away so they should be here when they get home so I might just have to add a couple of little things to the order for me - well it would be rude not to wouldn't it!! Thank you for sharing Barbara
    Sending hugs
    Love Diane xxx

  56. Just catching up! Love this plate, the alphabet is so pretty. Any resolve I had to be frugal at the open day has just gone up in smoke!
