Today’s Clarity Show on Create and Craft

I watched Barbara’s shows today and want to say that C and C waste a lot of her time. They do not need to keep stopping to show the item numbers as most items sell out anyway.


why can’t they just run the numbers across the bottom of the screen during the shows once they have shown you them at the beginning. It was 34 minutes into the first hour before Barbara started her first demo.

Then they moved onto other stuff that had nothing to do with Clarity, sticky pads and ribbon. Most of us know about such things.


maybe I am being a bit harsh on C and C but Barbara is usually left dashing to finish something or has to not finish it because they have run out of time.

Alphatags O and P

Here are the tags
I made for July We are now on to the final stretch towards our Alphatags


I have done O for Ornithology using one of the downloads from Chocolate Baroque designed by the brilliant  Lesley Wharton

P is for Pretty Poppies using a CB Poppy stamp which I stamped onto vellum andadded to a tag stamped with a Clarity poppy stamp.




My June Alphatags- L M and N

These are the tags I made for the Chocolate Baroque Guild Alphatag Swap.

L uses a  stamp from Lace Fragments by CB and a Club Stamp- Lily of the Valley- from Claritystamp on a DI background . THe flowers of the Lily of the Valley were coloured with a white pen.

M uses PanPastels dabbed over versamrk stamped Mask Images from CB. The pastels were blended once they had dried. The two main masks were heat embossed  the perple using gold Ep and Pink using Silver Ep and then glazed using clear EP.

N uses another Claritystamp- again on a background made using Panpastels.

L is for Lace, Lavender and Lily of the Valley

M is for Masquerade

N is for Nature’s Beauty
