Review: Simply Cardmaking & Papercraft - Issue 119

Soooo, another review that is unfortunately late due to Christmas/birthday etc.  However, this now sees me all caught up - with the reviews at least, I still have lots of projects to share with you.

This month's issue is a lovely non-Christmas issue and comes with a free scoring board, with templates for cards and envelopes.  As always, the first project feature in the magazine is some ideas of how to use your freebie with step-by-step instructions to make different card types, envelopes and rosettes.

For The Boys was an interesting read.  I always struggle with boy cards, especially as they get older, and this project has some great ideas, some of which I will definitely be attempting to recreate.  They are lovely and bright.

Plant A Garden has some great card ideas for gardeners and those who love nature.  I may steal one of these ideas for my Gramps, but I have until October for his birthday, so something else may catch my eye before then.  I do have a craft fair coming up, so I could try out some of these ideas for cards for then.

Other projects include:
  • Guide to digital crafting - using digi stamps and digi papers
  • Feature on Woodware's Judith Brewer and cards using woodware products
  • Waste Not, Want Not claims to raid the local charity shops for materials
  • A Bit of Feminine Flair has cards made using Dreamees stamp sets available from Create & Craft
  • the results of Card Designer of the Year 2013
  • freebie digistamps from Charline Fabry
  • six different ways of using chevrons, including some great masculine valentines cards
  • more valentines cards in Send a Little Love
  • Craft with Leann uses Crafter's Companion products to make girly cards

Giveaways this issue include:
  • Berisfords ribbons
  • A Card A Day book
  • The Crafter's Workshop stencil
  • Hunkdory Bouquet Wishes set
  • Cosmic Shimmer Glue
  • bumper Hunkydory goody bag
The next issue is out on 30th January and comes with a free paper stack and stamp set.

Happy Crafting!
