Some Weekend Reading – Digital Crafting Essentials, Simply Cards & Papercraft, Creative Cardmaking and Papercraft Essentials

Ok, so I confess, I’ve dropped a bit behind with my magazine shout outs, so some of these mags have been out for a few weeks now so you might need to move fast if you haven’t got them already and you want them.

The first shout out is for Simply Cards and Papercraft 121 which has been out since the beginning of March, I know, my bad!

I was super excited when I realised that the purple card on the front was actually mine LOL! I can be a bit slow sometimes and I thought ‘that looks familiar!’ Oh bless. I’ve been making patterns with the lovely Waltzingmouse stamps.

Then there is Digital Crafting Essentials vol 2

I’ve been making some digital papers and stamps again and you will find them on the free CDs with the magazine. Hope you like them.

Next up it is Creative Cardmaking 65

and some cute Easter makes using paper and die cuts to make cute bunnies and chicks.

Last but not least there is the new issue of Papercraft Essentials, issue 105, and this one came out only last week so I’m back up-to-date – phew!

You get some lovely Core’dinations card with this one so have fun with it!

Ok, so lots of weekend reading, yay for the weekend!

Have a fun Friday.



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.
