As promised last week, I am sharing some cards I made using “Make Special Cards” magazine, issue #10. The MSR is $16.99 but sometimes they are on sale at the craft stores. This was my first magazine kit I purchased and I’ve been so impressed with everything you get for a very reasonable cost. This issue comes with a full 5×7 stamp set containing 25 stamp elements along with 30 A4 sheets of pattern paper, over 100 push-out-die-cuts, 9 card blanks in 3 colors, 9 envelopes and52 pages of pictures, samples and instructions. I think that’s a lot for $16.99. I don’t think you could buy the stamp set alone for $16.99 so coupled with all the other goodies, it’s a very good deal.
Here is the magazine cover.
I made many, many cards from this issue and here are some of them.
This card I made special for my new Granddaughter Genevieve.
This is the free stamp set included with the magazine. Lots of possibilities, for sure.This next batch of cads I turned into Mother’s Day cards for donation. I think I made a total of about 30 cards. I did add a few extra embellishments such as baker’s twine, ribbon and a few die cuts and the card bases but everything came from the kit. These cards were so quick and easy to make.
Next week I’ll showcase another magazine kit and cards. Be sure to check out the magazine section of your favorite craft store or Barnes & Noble book store. There you will find lots of paper crafting magazines as well as ones for all other sorts of crafts/hobbies such as knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilling….
Till next week,
