It’s Groovi in the SHAC!

Hey hey! Grace & Stuart here.

I hope this finds you all happy, safe and well?

Firstly, here’s the newest download to get your teeth into! Yet another fabulous design for you to emulate, or simply be inspired by. It honestly doesn’t matter if it looks NOTHING like the original. That is not the point. It’s about inspiration. They’re impressive either way.

In my mind it’s like homework… and it’s the same large handful of you that are making Groovi SHAC cards every week. I know what names to expect (mostly). You always get your homework in on time, and this blog is like marking. Except; homework sucks. And crafting is fun 😉 And I’m not a teacher hahaha! Could you imagine?

So, on to your next assignment! Groovi SHAC #012

Simply click here, or the image above, to download!

All for fun. Another lovely one. For a lovely bunch.

I’m on holiday/vacation a couple of hours north of NYC at the moment (woop woop!) and so I have asked Stuart to help me out and pick his favourite Groovi SHAC cards of the week. Of course, he kindly agreed. That’s Stuart. Lovely guy! And I know he has good taste, so… Thank you, Stu!

Here are his favourites!

Jackie Couling
Jane Garwood
Julie Campbell
Katharine Peace
Lyn Buckell
Lynne Bishop

Well, many thanks to Grace for always putting a spotlight on all these cracking designs. And, as Grace said earlier, it doesn’t matter if it’s not an exact replica of the original. As you can see above, some of you guys are being ‘inspired’ rather than doing a direct copy. And both are great ways to learn. I’m a firm believer that imitation is the best way to learn creativity. There’s nothing new under the sun, after all, so copy to your heart’s content, and, sure enough, you’ll begin having your own ideas, being creative under your own strength, and being confident to adapt or be original where necessary. And that’s the sign you’re really having fun – when you feel free enough to go ‘off-piste’! But you’ve gotta start somewhere, right? So we’re very glad you to provide the SHAC downloads, and we’re delighted to see them being used every week. Great stuff!

Lotsa love, Grace & Stuart!

    Thanks Grace and Stuart, I was inspired this week and sent mine off to my PTC swap partner for March, we did agree for me to wait to send the PTC while COVID19 was causing postal problems but it went off this week. Now we’re starting again! Lovely download this week too but I might have to improvise again ! Hope you had a good holiday Grace and you’ve got a week off our doodling our Stuart – bet you’ve still got to work though LOL ! Have a good weekend both of you. X x
