Welcome to the August edition of Making Cards!
Summer has officially arrived and here at Making Cards we’re celebrating by not only bringing you amazing projects (as always!) but a Prizes For You Bonanza!
We’ve teamed up with some brilliant brands to offer you all the chance to win some fabulous prizes! Everyone is in with a chance so visit pages 28, 29 and 31 to find out more!
Our craft papers, I may be biased but they are the best aren’t they! This month we’ve included a set of beautifully illustrated childrens themed craft papers and something a little different - Zentangle colouring! There is a real hype around colouring for adults at the moment and I’ve seen some stunning results! Colouring is said to generate wellness and quietness, it stimulates creativity and the senses which can’t be bad!
By Request was this month suggested by Joanne Walter via Facebook. Joanne wanted a project using a flower loom maker and so we present to you Blooming brilliant, page 74, by new contributor Rebecca James. Welcome to our ever expanding team Rebecca! Elsewhere, our Make it Simple project is Fabulous for friends (page 54), Sarah has used a stamp set and pretty papers to create these three stunning cards. If you have any requests I’m always happy to hear them, you can get in touch using any of the details on the contacts page.
I just love our Cards for Kids project and cover card, Happy holiday. Faye Wynn-Jones’ creativity teamed with Tiddly Inks - what could be better! I also love Denise’s Lovely for ladies cards - the combination of Kaisercraft’s new Oh So Lovely collection teamed with Julie Nutting’s Doll Stamps for Prima work so well together. Lastly, Emma’s Designs with a difference card - wow, talk about summer wrapped up in a design!
