Mixed Up Saturday


Good Saturday Morning Ladies,

I hope that today finds you as well as can be, gentle hugs to those of you that are feeling under the weather xxx

Today I thought I'd share the latest IndigoBlu magazine with you all....

IndigoBlu Mixed-Media Special

Issue 8 

It's a lovely issue with some nice free gifts,  a lovely set of stamps with some matching dies and 2 nice stencils. 

The first feature shares some lovely projects that spotlight or highlight a specific area.  I like the clean and simple look.

Sarah Phelan has given some lovely inspiration for the free dies on this page 

I have made a masterboard before and really enjoyed it, so I will be definitely having a go at this  

A Masterclass on Mixed Media by Kay herself,  some of these projects are gorgeous,  I would love to sit and make one, be good to use up all the lace and bits that I have.  
Janet I can imagine you enjoying doing these as well.

These are all quick to make cards made using some of the gorgeous free papers that  come with the magazine 😍 

Some journal pages and scrapbook layouts in this feature.

We can't leave those pesky men folk out can we?!,  Katie has some fun Man cards.

How gorgeous are those papers!!! The quality is amazing too, there are 2 of each pattern so plenty to play with.

These lovely cards all feature the stencils, something we all have but often forget to use.  I love these cards. 

Just one of the stamps in the free set is the main focus of these cards, it just shows the versatility of the set.

Now I have ink sprays but just never remember to use them partly because of the mess, the thing is that I love the effect when I do use them.  

Teabag folding, paper weaving,  paper rolling, some origami flowers and a shirt fold I remember from way back when I first started crafting it was the go to for a man card  !!

If you like Kays style of crafting you'll love these projects that she has shared how to create, a little more time consuming but well worth the effort.

Finally these lovely clean and simple designs look great fun to make, great for any occasion too.

Now this magazine was £14.99 and in my opinion worth the money, the free gifts are really usable and there is so much inspiration inside the magazine.
What do you think?

I hope that you all have a lovely Saturday, 

Love & hugs to all,

    Lovely quote 💕 Thanks for the magazine review, I think with these lovely stamps, stencil and papers the price is right so might have to get this one. Hope your shopping went well today.

    Today I went to a Crafterama in Warwickshire. It was a nice one and not too big, bought a few things as you do, but not much this time 😉
