Happy Friday ahead of what I hope will be a lovely weekend for you all. I don't think the weather is going to be as amazing as last weekend .. .. but at least it looks dry on the forecast which is something.
It is still all weddings and magazine work here .. .. lots of excited brides at the moment hoping that the sunshine is going to last for them.
Whilst out walking with Mum yesterday I noticed that Issue 19 of Make Special Cards has made it to the supermarket shelves .. .. so I can now share some of my favourite makes from that lovely commission.
The idea of this magazine is that you can make lots of different projects using the stamps, papers and toppers and sentiments that are provided. I got to work with the squirrels in the collection whilst the other designer, Hazel France, worked with some scrummy peacocks.
There are a mixture of simple and more difficult projects in the magazine and I love to think that perhaps a "newbie" crafter will pick up a copy "just to have a play" and end up getting hooked on an exciting, enjoyable and very addictive new hobby. I can remember only too well being that "newbie" and just one purchase changed my life completely .. .. so much so that paper crafting in its many forms has now consumed my world (and home) completely!!
Anyway here are my favourite makes this time round:
These two cards are from a stamping commission .. .. I love the tree design paper on the first one sooo much .. .. I would buy a pack of it if I could! The colours are just gorgeous!
along with a little gift box .. .. that uses that paper again LOL!!!
Next up are some "quick makes" using some of the toppers and sentiments that are provided
and finally a couple of card fold makes .. .. .. one using a topper and the other is stamped
.. .. .. and after picture overload that is me for today.
I will catch you again over the weekend. Have fun until then!
