You Tube Tuesday is Back! All about Groovi Plate Mates.


Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.

Grace and Mark are both winging it back to the States today, 
 after a wonderful Christmas family break. 
So. 
There are three things I MUST do:

Be GRATEFUL for the super time we spent together (tick)
ACCEPT that they live where they do, and are happy (tick)
GET BUSY - SEEK DISTRACTION.

So here we go...
YOUTUBE TUESDAY!!
You know we already have an extensive Youtube Channel with over 15,500 subscribers and an extensive video library, right?

Well, we had to park it, because Jim and I got caught up in the Groovi avalanche. But now things have calmed down (not really, but we have a better handle on it now, and there are more of us),
we are firing it up again - Youtube that is.

So today there is an intro Youtube, showcasing all the various Groovi Plate Mates. Many of you asked about this, about which went with what, so Rosie and I decided to clarify. Or at least try to!









There will be lots of regular Youtube videos coming your way during the coming weeks and months; they will cover everything at Clarity, from Groovi and Pergamano Parchment Art to Stamping and Mixed Media. 
Oh, and another thing: we will be coming to you in English, German and even French!

I have called in the cavalry too, so other members of the Clarity Team will be helping. 

It’s a building game, it will develop gradually and grow as we do. 
Tuesdays will be the day we attach a 20% discount to whatever we are showcasing. This sale will run from Tuesday to Tuesday, and is in ADDITION to your Club membership.

For example, today, Rosie and I are just talking about all the Groovi Plate Mates in the Collection. 
So there’s 20% off all Groovi Plate Mates:

I hope you enjoy this way of demonstrating and entertaining! 

Love & Hugs,

  6. Thank you for this fun video explaining how the different sized Plate Mates work Barbara, but I do have a question. I have not got into Groovi yet but have thought about joining the Groovi Club. If I do and want to use other plates besides just the monthly issued one, will the Groovi Go plates fit into the Groovi Club Plate Mate. It would be great if someone could let me know. x

  7. Sorry Barbara, I meant to say I hope Mark and Grace have good journeys back to The States, and so pleased that you all had a great Christmas together...lots of happy memories to store up for when you feel a bit sad, and you are right, keeping busy is the best medicine. x

  10. Hi Barb,
    Great video although worrying that I've got them all!! You and Rosie looked as though you were having a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing the next ones. Great offer as well . I think you're wise to try and find distractions to take your mind off Grace and Mark. Console yourself that you've had a lovely time with them over the Christmas period and that it won't be that long until you see them again. I know that they'll be missing you too. Love and hugs Alison xxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Thank you for your good wishes yesterday. Well, I finished off the card I started yesterday and am really pleased with it and also got another one traced out and began some whitework on it so am quite chuffed ( only another 6 to do!!) I'm working on the theory that if I get them traced out, if I don't finish them before I go into hospital, I can work on them in there. At least that will keep me occupied! Sending love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

    2. Well done Alison, doing better than me as I haven't got back into the craft room yet. Groovi will be just right to take into hospital, hours will pass without you noticing. XX

  11. After watching the new video I am determined that I am going to do more Groovi with my ladies at the hospice. It’s so calming.

  12. Thank you for the great offer, I have ordered two plate mates. I enjoyed watching the video and it’s good to be able to go back and watch any time. Hold on to your hats folks, they are giving out storm warnings on the radio xx

  13. Barbara, thanks once again for all you do for us Groovi Gals, love the idea of video demo's, I do record all your TV appearances but obviously from time to time have to use the delete button, so you tube is an excellent idea.
    Regards the " kids " going home I understand exactly where your coming from, always miss mine after they leave and mine are in England.
    So big hugs to you and I'm looking forward to another brilliant Grooving year.
    I do love it, thanks to you and the team for everything xx

  14. Thank you, I really enjoyed watching that. You and Rosie did a good job of explaining the different Plate Mates and I've discovered that there is a 2nd border plate that I don't have (thought I had them all) so I'll be hopping over to the website to take advantage of the 20% off. Looking forward to future videos. You've definitely convinced me that I need to lift the lid on my Groovi storage box and get Grooving again. Love and hugs, Jeanette xx

  18. It's always hard when our children go back to their homes, like you I try to keep busy. Clarity help me with that. Watched the Utube video, brilliant, full of fun. Didn't realise that I still have a few plate mates to get. I'm sure that will be remedied very soon. Hope Grace and Mark have good journeys back and no delays. Hugs to you Barbara.xxx

  19. Hi bloggy friends, Hope you've all had a good day. Wet, cold and windy here today. So looking forward to all the new Utube videos on the way. Didn't realise that I'd missed some plate mates either. Love and hugs to all Pam xxx

  20. Sounds lovely, I have lots of groovi items. I would be interested in what to do stencils. I've just bought a few of the clarity ones for backgrounds. Many thanks if you read this. Xx

  21. You clearly had fun making that video, and I'm looking forward to many more. Mum and I share our crafting stash, starting out with stamps and then venturing into stencils. We had resisted Groovi for several months, until you finally hooked us with the New Design Club baby plates. We have added a few of the bigger plates to our collection, but predominantly have the A6 baby plates ... and only one plate mate between us! That is, until Santa brought me the Groovi Go! system. I had thought that the NDC Celtic Knot extra plate might have been the right size to act as a spacer in the Groovi Go! plate mate, but unfortunately it's just too big. Any plans to bring out any more spacers for Groovi Go!? Please pretty please!!

    2. Thanks, Barbara - I'd like to be able to use the NDC baby plates in the Groovi-Go plate mate, but it'll need a spacer. I'm spatially challenged (rubbish at estimating measurements!) so, when I remembered the little plate that had been sent out with the corner elements for the NDC Celtic Knot, I thought it would work, but it doesn't. I know you have a couple of spacers available on the website for Groovi Go!, but there are some much more interesting designs in the larger spacers! Now here's an idea - what would be really wonderful is a mini piercing grid spacer plate, just something so we could dip our toes into the piercing/picot cutting side of Groovi without being overfaced! How useful would that be - piercing on the go!? (There I go, asking for the moon when you've already given me the stars!!)xx

  23. Hi Barbara
    I hope Grace and Mark arrive home safe and sound, sending you a big hug because I know how much you miss them. How good though to have you tube Tuesday to concentrate on instead and very exciting for us too. What a great offer too, thank you that's very generous. I will watch in the morning, I'm just off to bed now.
    Love Diane xxx

  24. Hello Barb, I hope Grace and Mark had a safe journey back to the US, and I bet you are looking forward to their next visit, or perhaps yours? Whoohoo, YouTube is back, looking forward to it with all the inspiration, and off the watch it now before I start back at work later. Take care all. Bx
