This change in season feels like one of the most dramatic, summer to autumn is so sudden compared to any other. However, it’s also a very exciting one – the fi rst mention of Christmas at MC HQ and everyone is buzzing – quite an achievement to keep this up mind you, seeing as this was back in June! The reason for this is because this is when we start to design your free stamps! Yes, amidst the sunny days we were putting together The Christmas Cat, just for you! You won’t find this exclusive design anywhere else! Contributor Faye has created a wonderful selection of cards for you to make using the set teamed with the Colourful Christmas Craft Paper Collection – a beautiful range of jazzy patterns. Your other Collection is just as colourful – Ready for Christmas is arty, sophisticated and also contains beautiful patterns with gorgeous toppers. I love a good pattern!
Elsewhere in this magazine we take it back to basics as we start to explore 'how to..' (in this case create a rainbow background), check out the latest launch from Crafter’s Companion, ogle over beautiful cards for you to recreate from Lavinia Stamps, Lili of the Valley, Whimsy Stamps and many more of your favourite brands!
We also look at eco-friendly glitter, and find out more about how this is produced and why it is important we adopt small changes in our crafting habits, we also catch up with Kate Crane to find out what she’s up to this month!
