    Simply Cards and Papercraft - Issue 148

    As a subscriber i was lucky enough to get my issue nice and early and when it dropped in the door i was super excited to see the freebie gift, an Altenew stamp and die set! I then read the magazine and found out online this was an accident, the gift should have been something different as this freebie gift was due to me next months gift but came out early, i certainly didnt mind as i love the Altenew goodies!

    I couldn't wait to get started and experiment with the stamp and die set but only had a spare half hour in the day and limited supplies to hand so i created a couple of simple cards. The die quality is fantastic, nice crisp cuts and the stamps work beautifully with them. I love the idea of layering up the stamps and if i had more time and more stamp colours to hand i'd have got stuck in and experimented but that will have to wait until i've finished my commission orders now!

    Another great issue of SC&P too, some lovely project ideas well worth picking up a copy.

    Gorjuss Cards

    I've been working with my Santoro Gorjuss paper and die cut pack again today creating some small cards. I do love the beautiful images in the collection. I've teamed up some of the die cut images with sentiments found in my craft stash and mounted them onto small cards from the Gorjuss collection.

    Have you worked with the Santoro Gorjuss range? Which girl is your favourite?

  3. Hello everyone,

    I recently invested in some Tattered Lace dies and was inspired instantly to get creating. I chose to use the Elephant die first and made some simple cards using up my crafty stash. You can see a couple of the cards i made here in video clips on You Tube.

    Short demo one is using the Elephant die & craft stash.

    Short demo two is using the Elephant die negative & craft stash

    Please do let me know what you think,

    Love & glitter Kerri

    Hello everyone! 

    I finally got hold of some Tattered Lace dies and i am super impressed. The detail in the dies is fantastic and the cut is beautifully crisp. 

    I chose to use the stag first, as you can see i found lots of uses for it! It made beautiful negatives in my blue background paper & i chose to layer up the stag in the centre image by cutting several stags in the same colour and layering with foam pads. I snipped off the antlers though as one set looked right. I even die cut the stag in green and snipped off the antlers to use as botanical swirls to go with my red flower. 

    I do hope you like my first creation with Tattered Lace dies. 

    Love & glitter, Kerri x 

  5. UHello everyone, 

    I had another demo on Sunday 6th March at The Range in Exeter demonstrating Docrafts new releases. I had some great new ranges to work with including Country Life and Geometric Mocha as well as a selection of new mini dies.

    I started the day with a selection of Country life demos, customers loved the new range especially those with country style kitchens who wanted to have a go at turning my sample notice board into a country life style one. (I showed them the current Docrafts Creativity magazine that has a great Country Life board memo board in it for anyone looking for inspiration) The range also lends itself well to cardmaking and papercrafts. My favourite item from the range has to be the chicken wire acetate, i loved using this!

    Another range i showcased at the demo was the Geometric Mocha. I great modern feel range that really lends itself well to home interior projects as well as papercraft gifts, cards and scrapbooking. I'm loving scrapbooking with the new spiral bound books and the mini dies work especially well with them. 

    I had a great day at the demo, i hope those who came along did too. I made lots more samples which i will share with you over the coming week. I'll be at Buy & Save in Wellington demonstrating on Saturday and in The Range, Taunton Sunday so do please pop along and say hi!
