How Cool - Check this out!

Today I bought the latest copy of Cardmaking in Easy Steps (Issue 8) and am delighted to say that once again some of my cards appear on the front cover.

My cards are the "Make a Wish" and the castle one. They are part of the "Make 15 cards from 1 kit" entry. This kit was really fun to design around as the elements were so cute and pretty - lovely colours and really cute designs.

I'm also including this set of cards I made from Kaisercraft's Check In Collection. A while ago, I  bought a kit from my local Kaisercraft outlet and it came with instructions for 5 cards (but no pictures); but by the time I came to make them, I had no idea what they looked like and so had to make up my own design using the instructions as a starting point. I'm sorry to say that the instructions weren't all that clear and you definitely would have needed the pictures of the cards to follow if you wanted to make them yourself away from the card class.

Anyway I'm happy with how they turned out. What a fun collection to use - quite vintage in style but with some modern colour combos.

I love it that these cards can quite easily be given to males or females - they're perfectly suited for both. I also just adore the richness of the purple used.

Anyway, bye for now.
