Some Reading For The Weekend

Can you believe? It is the weekend already so I have some reading to catch up on. First up there is the new issue of the new Bookazine Digital Crafting Essentials Vol 1

Lots of digital inspiration in this one, with some great free bits and bobs on the free CD-ROMS including some super cute Christmas Digi-Stamps from Saturated Canary. I was lucky enough to get to play with these and they are fun to colour. I haven’t done any colouring for a while so it was nice to get a little practice in. I’ve also got an article with tips for taking photos for your blog and some Silhouette Cameo and Sizzix eclips makes too. 

Next up is the latest issue of Creative Cardmaking, Issue 60

What do you think about Iris Folding? Is it a technique you have used before? Are you a regular Iris Folder? It is a technique I’ve not used much myself, well, never used if I am honest but I’ve got an article in this month’s issue of Creative Cardmaking with my first ever Iris Folding and templates I designed myself. So if I can do it, it can’t be that difficult! It was fun actually, I like the fact that you can use colour to build the picture. If you want to see my first ever attempt at Iris Folding then check out this month’s issue of Creative Cardmaking.

Final reading to catch up on is this month’s issue of Complete Cardmaking, Issue 46

There are lots of yum digital freebies in the cover CD-ROM with this issue including some papers designed by me. Hope you like them!

Right, well, better go get a cup of tea for all this reading!

Catch you later artinators.

    Saw your Iris folding…I haven't done this for years so you might just have prompted me to have another go.

    The Digital Crafting Essentials looks interesting – must keep an eye out for it.

    Enjoy your reading and have a lovely Sunday.
