Michele's Magazine Review
Here’s this months roundup of crafty magazines.
Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine has some lovely Art Deco toppers which you could use for a variety of occasions.
Simply Cards & Papercraft has a gorgeous set of stamps & Dies from Altenew plus some matching downloads to use with the Dies if you’re not confident about Stamping,
Making Cards has a great set of stamps plus great quality papers. Two themes on the papers-Easter & general/wine glasses to coordinate with the stamps. Lots of possibilities with this set of stamps.
Papercraft Inspirations has a lovely set of heart stamps & Dies free this month. The free papers are all “weather related “ and there’s some lovely cards to copy.
That all for another month.
Thank you Michele for another fantastic review, Congratulations on getting your cards published in a magazine, you are becoming quite the Celebrity Card maker!!! I am so pleased for you, your cards are amazing and totally deserve a spot in a magazine!
I will confess that I just couldn't resist the magazine with Altenew Dies etc, they look so fantastic, I can't wait to play with them.
Brenda shared her shopping with us this week, oh Brenda I think I might just have to get the Vintage Embossing Folder and Paper pad, they are so pretty!!
The first photo is what Brenda bought from Oyster Crafts, some Foam for making flowers and a simple die to die cut them with, I can't wait to see how you get on Brenda, Sue and I spent an afternoon playing with the same foam but we didn't really get much success, I was using my best gun though, which may have been to hot, the successful ones I've seen on YouTube use an Iron, hold the foam on for a few seconds and shape!
I do love that template you have bought too.
Brenda's second photo shows the lovely paper pads and Embossing Folder from Crafter's Companion, they are so pretty, your cards are going to be amazing!!
Thank you so much for sharing your shopping my lovely .
Karen Couldn't resist these new Stamps a new and Dies from John Lockwood after seeing them on Hochanda, Karen isn't a member though so bought hers from Ang Duck (Ducksdoodahs).
I didn't see the show that they were featured in Karen but I will go and have a look, I look forward to seeing what you make with them. Thank you so much for sharing your shopping with us.
Danielle needed a New Baby card in the week but didn't have a Stamp or day that would work, so she had a quick browse on Pinterest and a a couple hours later she had made this!! I think it's a brilliant idea! Just a piece of blue card, a couple of doilies and some ribbon! Such a a lovely card.
Thank you so much Danielle for allowing me to share your card.
Well that's all for today, will you be buying any of Michele's featured magazines??, I am hoping that there will be someone selling Sara Davies paper pads at the Craft show today, there aren't very many exhibitors but the ones that are going usually have a good range of products. So fingers crossed !!
It will be nice to get out of the house and away from the box mountain!
I have pretty much fitted most of my unit together, it just needs to be moved into position and then the doors can be attached, I finished assembling them yesterday. To get it into its position is going to be like one of those little puzzles with a free square, where you have to move all the other bits around to get everything in the right order, it's going to be chaos for an hour or two, well maybe three!
I will be taking plenty of photos so you can see how I decide to organise it.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
