Crafts Beautiful August 2013 Issue

Happy Sunday folks!
 
We have a mix of sun/rain at the moment - boo! But at least it is warm.
 
So, as I can't get out into the garden I thought I would pop on, say hello and show you a peep at some of my makes in the current issue of Crafts Beautiful.
 
 
The project is 7 Ways With...Weaving. I chose seven different mediums to use on the cards, these included washi tape, fabric, paper, card, ribbon, stamping your own paper and Decopatch papers.
 
Here's a peek at some of the cards...
 
Stamped papers

Card strips

Decopatch papers

Fabric strips
 
Also in this issue, you get a free mini book - 'Quick & Easy Cards'. I also have a couple of makes in that too...
 

 
You may recognise the scooter card, I did a version of it a while ago in a previous post. There is a lovely card at the end of the mini book called 'baby notes'; it mentions my name as the designer. I just want to say, I didn't design this sweet little card.
 
 You also get another freebie, a Crafter's Companion CD. I'm not a fan of Crafter's Companion, but for fans, this CD is great and the freebie book is also packed with makes using the CD.
 
As usual, this issue is jam packed with all sorts of wonderful projects, hints, tips, inspiration and giveaways. There is a really good subscriber offer*, you get a Tonic Studios Pick of the Bunch Stamp & Punch Set worth £27.99. Don't forget, if you are an existing subscriber, you can renew your existing subscription to get this fantastic set.
 
There is also a new subscriber competition - all readers who subscribe will be entered into a competition to win a Cricut Cuttlebug worth £59.99! What are you waiting for?
