A New Adventure

Hi Everybody,

Well here we are again and it looks as if summer is on its way out ... not that we have had much of one this year ... but as I write the rain is pouring down onto my craft room windows and it is going very dark.

The best place to be is at home where it's warm and dry.

Over the past month I have been really busy creating videos for YouTube.

I was asked by Practical Publishing if I would like to create regular videos featuring their magazines each month to show you what you can get with them as a free gift.

These magazines are available in newsagents, supermarkets and craft shops as well as from WHSmith.

You can also buy them or subscribe to one direct from Moremags and there is a vast selection of magazines to choose from covering all different subjects so there is sure to be one that covers your hobby.

My personal choice is Simply Cards and Papercrafts and I have subscribed to that one for years.

A subscription means that it is delivered to your door regular each month and before it is in the shops

At the moment they are offering to send you a free magazine and its gift for just £1.99 to cover the cost of the postage.

And if you click this link ... Craft Stash Offer it will take you to the page where you can add your email address.

They will then send you a code to enable you to get your copy of Papercraft Essentials

All the new videos are covering the free gifts that will be attached to future magazines and there are some really good gifts.

At present I am working on those that will be with Septembers issues and I try to give you even more ideas on what you can do with the gift

Pop over to my YouTube Channel and check them out. Maybe you bought one of their publications in August and want to see some ways to use the gifts that you got If you enjoy the videos then please give it the "Thumbs Up" that lets YouTube know that you enjoy this kind of video

I have also added them permanently to my blog and the link for them is in the right hand side bar and I will add more as the videos are completed.

Please continue to add your card makes and projects to the Card Making Gallery so that every one can see what you have done.

But please tell us something about how you made the card as one line tells visitors nothing.... And I cannot answer the questions as I don't know how you made it or what you used.

The Friday Freebie is going well and so if you would like to win one of them then don't forget to add your comment to the blog page and NOT on Facebook

It doesn't matter if you have won a card previously or even where you live .. I am happy to send the card to you anywhere at my expense.

You will need to come back the next morning to see if it is you as I have no way to contact you if you win

I cannot chase you up... and you only have 72 hours in which to claim it.

I have added a Winners Page for you to check for your name and also past winners. Any cards that are not claimed will be offered to someone else at a later date.

Flowers Ribbons and Pearls

Updates ...

YouTube followers continue to rise and I really appreciate all the comments

Please become a subscriber so that you will get notification whenever I add a new tutorial and as I add them each week usually on a Thurdsay

Thank you as always for your support with both the website and the blog and I'll see you again next month
