Fab, right? I’m so impressed by the picot cutting. I’ll be honest with you, it’s not something I’ve tried before, but these have inspired me to give it a go!
Thank you!

Moving forward, onto our next homework… Here is download number #21

Click me!

Another lovely one! I like this idea of creating boxes, compartmentalising.

Filling them with whatever you fancy! The options are endless. Let’s see what you come up with 🙂

See you tomorrow for the Saturday Share…

Lotsa love, Grace xo

    You should definitely try picot cutting. It’s very mindful. I practiced on some scrap parchment first, following the instructions in the booklet and then watched a video and it didn’t take too long to be producing acceptable points. I made a bunch of snowflakes last year, that turned out really well. I ended up purchasing the A4 grids, which though they are a considered purchase as they say on Hochanda, are much easier to work with than having to constantly shift your work on the smaller grids.

    I will admit that I am a bit disappointed (although I understand why) that the poppets will not be available as Groovi. The stamps are gorgeous, but just a little too small for the 5×7 cards I usually make. Glad to see that printed poppets are going well. It would be great to be able to purchase sets of all the same image someday.

    The cards are really stunning this week. I’ve already been shopping today and suspect I might be buying another birthday treat before the day is over!! Sadly, I sat down at counted up what I have spent on Clarity products online in the last two years! That was not a good idea! However, on the positive side, I have plenty of good quality products to keep me going for a very long time! Hope you have a good weekend, Grace. Stay safe. Lots of love. Hxx

    Wow, just spotted my card for Groovi SHAC 20, I didn’t spot it first time I looked. Enjoyed working in the boxes to create the different areas of design. Picot cutting is so relaxing especially the crosses, they are a bit more forgiving if you don’t quite make the perfect V. Grace you will have to be brave & give it a go !! Need to start on the snowflakes, the ones I have seen look so delicate & pretty when completely snipped out. Now to get some more projects under way & finished as my pile of to do is growing quicker than I am crafting due to all the excellent online classes that have appeared during Covid.
    Now to continue watching the Birthday weekend shows on Hochanda – Happy 27th Birthday to everyone at Clarity – here’s to many more.

    Wow… what a fabulous collection of cards, I feel honored to have my card amongst them, thank you Grace.
    What a great weekend this is going to be, even if expensive!! I loved the poppets & am looking forward to seeing Josie’s new grid plates – just my cup of tea!
    Happy birthday to everyone at Clarity & have a great weekend xx

    Wonderful cards. makes me sad I can no longer ‘Groov’!! I’m really looking forward to new papers and birdie stamps on Sunday. I have pretty well all the other paper pads so it’d be rude not to get the new ones, wouldn’t it!! And I’m a sucker for anything with birds. I have several of the ones being sold already, but of course not the things with them and a few extra birds won’t matter!

    Thankyou for showing my card. I’ve a few downloads to catch up on as I was recovering from eye surgery but I’m fit and keen to catch up now. Happy 27th birthday to clarity. You will have lived with it since you were a wee babe. I have to admit I’ve given in to temptation with all the lovely new plates and parchment. Have to save up now for the floral alphabet and numbers lol x

    Happy 27th Brthday. I Have watched all the shows so far and spent lots. I see from the Clarity header there are many more ‘must haves’ in the pipe line which will inevitably leap into my basket. Going to be an expensive few days but worth it. Keeps me happy and well occupied.
    Beautiful cards as usual, such talent. Well done everyone.
    Stay safe 🍒

    Just spotted my card Grace, didn’t see it first time round think I’m going blind! Thank you for showing it again, there are some stunning cards and I love the picot snipping, very therapeutic noise and seeing the end result! You should give it a go! Hope you have a great weekend and stay safe as always xx

    Right….so it’s sleeves up to begin making Xmas cards….all thanks to the wonderful inspiring work you’ve featured above, along with the clever snowflakes and baubles recent Shack Shac your Mum treated us to. Methinks it’s going to be many days and nights burning the midnight oil to achieve my quota…but if I pull it off…what a fabulously original set of cards they will make for my nearest and dearest. For inspiration…just go all things Clarity, I reckon!
