Review - Cardmaking & Papercraft

Sooo, a quick review for you today (sorry Game of Thrones seemed more pressing last night than writing a review, so I decided to make it quick).

This is the latest issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft, which I believe hit the shops last week with a free embossing folder and stamp set,, featuring a cute bear on the stamp and daisies on the embossing folder.  I love both of these, but as I haven't spent much time making cards (which I intend at least to remedy) I haven't had chance to try them out.

As always, the first project in the magazine is ideas for using your freebie.  This time around, they are all cards, but I really like some of the ideas and may  be casing them.  I think that the stamp is also the perfect size for making tags.

Other projects this issue include:
  • shop front cards
  • 10 ideas with bare basics
  • die-cut flower display
  • 6 ways with one stamp
  • ideas with Graphic 45's Couture Collection
  • Parisian-style creations
  • quilled peacock card
  • ribbon effect cards from Leoni Pujol
  • wedding stationary using the new LOTV wedding stamps
  • decoupage gifts, including coat hangers, trinket bowls and scented drawer sachets
  • shading in greyscale
  • upcycled cupcake cases

Giveaways this issue include:
  • £1000 of Crafter's Companion goodies
  • Stampin' Up! goodies
  • goodies from The Printable Craft Shop
  • Docrafts natural goodies
  • Craft Asylum goodies
  • Woodware goodies

The next issue is out on 15th May and comes with some free vintage sewing charms.

Happy Crafting!
