Good Morning Ladies,
As promised we have Michele's magazine review, a new feature that we will hopefully have every month, after this first one we will schedule the post so that all of the magazines are still available.
I would like to thank Michele for taking the time to write this review, at least she has a good excuse to go and buy them all now!! I actually remember you going to buy the first 'Diecutting' magazine Michele and you weren't over keen, I guess its improved since then though, it does have some good freebies though.
So here is Michele's review.......
Papercraft Inspirations-fee gift is a set of stamps, embossing folder plus a very small flower Die. In fact it's so small that I rejected about 3 issues in Tesco as I thought it was missing-ha ha!
Making Cards-different to the rest of the bunch. Great quality papers & pretty good stamps.
My favourite magazine-Simply Cards & Papercraft. The free gift is usually Dies/Stamps-this month it's a matching set plus some great digital downloads for anyone that doesn't want to stamp and colour in-like me...!!!!
Cardmaking & Papercraft- stamps, embossing folder & a few papers. Lovely set but not my taste.
Papercraft Essentials (my second favourite) with s great set of Dies & stamps.
Diecutting Essentials-got a subscription as a gift. The Dies look really useful and will work well with previous sets of Dies. This is turning into a favourite as I just love die cutting!
Quick Cards Made Easy-stamps with papers and sentiments as a free gift. Lovely but again, not my taste.
This is a card I have made with one of the free gifts-the nesting dolls from Simply Cards & Papercraft. I printed out 2 sets of the Dolls, cut them all out then diecut two in plain card. Made a pop up box card and covered the 3 flaps plus the long piece at the back.
Added the dolls to strips of a acetate, all at different heights.
I made one doll hinged by using a tiny brad and added a baby behind her!
This is the back panel & I've written on it as I'm using it for my crazy friends birthday card.
See you all again next month with my magazine review.
Thanks so much Michele, I am looking forward to next month's edition already.
Ladies if any of you have craft shopping to share with everyone please send me a photo, I have a couple already and would like to have a full post.
I bought some 'Foamiran' so I can have a go at making some flowers, watch this space for the results, thanks Val for inspiring me xxx
Hoping to get some videoing done today, plus I still need to make a challenge card!! oops!
Have a lovely day everyone,
Love and hugs
