All about the ribbons!

Evening everyone!

Paul here.

Barbara is at her Mum & Dads and is struggling to get a signal
 so I am taking over the blog.

Yesterday, Barbara gave you a sneaky peek of all the brand new Parchment colours being launched by Rosie tomorrow on Hochanda together with the brand new Perga Brads!

Also, on the shows are some of my favourite
 stamps and Groovi Plates......

Ribbon Words

Brand new and by popular demand,
we have

Happy Birthday in stamp form

followed by

then we have

and finally

We then have the same in Groovi

Available as a bundle or individually

So why are the Ribbon Words one of my favourites?

I love fact that the main word is big.
It can be the main focus of the card 
or you can use it on it's own. 

Then, you have all the smaller words.
Perfect for working with the main sentiment
and perfect for working alone.

For example, on the Happy Birthday set,
you can just use the smaller words to say

Best Wishes on your Special Day
Celebrate Your Special Day

Lets have a look at some artwork from the design team
(apologies for not being able to name check - I couldn't find the names)

So, I hope you can tune in tomorrow and see what Rosie has in store for you.

If you check out the Groovi & Clarity Worldwide 
Facebook pages, the design team are teasing everyone
with some sneaky peeks!

Happy crafting!

  7. Hi Paul
    Thank you for doing the blog, it's ages since we've seen you on here, I hope you are ok. I've got the thank you stamp already and it's brilliant for making batch thank you cards as it works as the focal element, says what it means and you don't have to add much else if you don't want to. Like all Clarity stamps it's a dream to add colour to as well. Beautiful work from the design team.
    Love Diane xxx

  11. Fab samples, got the Groovi plates and must say they are often my 'go to' plates when need a quick is or male theme card. Am currently watching Rosie (12pm show) to see the plates/brads have just sold out - not surprisingly - have been very naughty and just treated myself to them and the gorgeous new parchment collection....shhh don't tell the OH! lol! Xx
