Welcome to May Clarity crafters!
How many of you visited Barbara and the Clarity gang at the NEC last month? I bet you picked up loads of hints and tips from the demos didn't you? Isn't it great to see Barbara and Maria in action?
If you want to see Barbara and some of the Clarity design team in action, all under one roof, there are a few Clarity Open Days in the diary, so come along and check them out. All events are ticket only so make sure you get yours and we look forward to seeing you.
Just a reminder that Barbara is on our TV screens on Create and Craft between 09.00 and 11.00 on on Sunday 3rd May. As usual there will be a live chat on the Clarity facebook page with all the positve chat whilst Barbara is crafting away on the TV. Make sure you've got a cuppa ready and waiting so that you don't have to leave the sofa!
Here's the theme for our new challenge which will run throughout May:
(using Clarity stamps/stencils ONLY)
Time is always ticking and we're always watching the clock aren't we?. We have appointments, the school run, getting to work on time and hopefully craft time too!
We'd like you to use this challenge to explore the different ways of incorporating clocks into your artwork.
Please remember to read the rules to avoid your entry being disqualified.
You could win a £50 voucher if you are randomly selected as our winner at the end of the month and become our guest designer for the next challenge.
Good luck with the challenge!!
Here is a little bit of inspiration from the design team:
(Guest Designer - winner from challenge 25)
Hello, my name is Julie Smith and I am a 40 something youngster who has been crafting for the past 12 years, although I have always enjoyed making things, painting and generally getting messy since my childhood. I was never one to be helping my mum with the house stuff, I was always with my dad in his garage or shed making "stuff".
Nowadays I like nothing more than going for a long walk with my dog and spending the rest of my free time with my family or getting messy in my craft room.
I was so pleased to be chosen as the winner of March's challenge and was thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer. I hope you like my take on the clock challenge.
Here's Julie's guest designer card for the current challenge:
