Die-cutting Essentials 24 Cover Gift Inspiration

Die-cutting Essentials issue 24 hit the shelves on Thursday 18th May and came with a 6-in-1 Mix & Matt nesting die set!  My copy from Practical Publishing arrived without the dies and I was told that I would have to wait up to 28 days for a replacement.  I ordered another copy from Cutting Edge Crafts and it arrived yesterday.  Typical I receive my dies from Practical Publishing. 




Here are just some ideas on how you can combine these:

April 2017 Magazine Freebies

So this month I am a little late.  Loads have been happening on the home front and I have just not had the time to settle in front of my PC.
So first up is:


PAPERCRAFT ESSENTIALS 145, out from 6th April, it comes with this fantastic free Safari Friends embossing folder and stamp set.


There are some lovely samples by Christine Smith to give you some amazing inspiration inside the mag and also on their blog post.

 

They also have some safari-themed background papers so click here to downloads yours free now.


I have stamped tonnes of the little images and coloured them.  They are such great fun, but I have not yet made a card but will post one shortly.

















Here is my card using just one of the stamps.  I used Spectrum Moir pens to create the rainbow paper to ensure it matched my unicorn perfectly.  I am working on the inside of the card at the moment and will share that here shortly.
