Yes, Christmas already! It's only September, but all the mags are preparing you for Christmas with great cardmaking and countdown ideas. Cross Stitch Crazy November Issue 169 is out now with this great idea for Christmas countdown blocks, each side with a different colourful pattern I designed for you to cross stitch. It comes complete with a guide to the stitching, and I think is a great way to get in the festive mood, and make something to keep on display through the festive period.
Also out this month is the Make Christmas Cards Special Magazine from the makers of Cardmaking and Papercraft. It's packed full of ideas for cards and gifts to make for Christmas, including a double sided embossing board and acrylic stamps to match the papers, tags, toppers and greetings, all designed by myself and Adam Pescott. There are also loads of ideas for decopage and templates included. It is available to order here.
There are 4 themed sets with the mag, winter blooms, homespun, frosty days and cute festive fun!
