Card-making-magazines are an excellent resource for learning new things.
They will inspire you to try out the ideas within their pages, and give you information on outlets for supplies.
Are you stuck for new ideas?
Do you need some inspiration?
Has your Mo Jo gone walk about?
Would you like to learn new techniques?
Then why not think about magazines to help you in that search and there are magazines on many hobbies and crafts that are sure to interest you whether you are a seasoned crafter or new
I wait patiently each month for my card-making-magazine to come through the letterbox, and then it's cup of coffee, feet up time while I browse the pages to my hearts content.
Whenever I am short of simple ideas they get my imagination going again and spur me on to try new things.
There are new products coming on to the market everyday and the information on the pages helps me to decide if I want to try that one out for my self.
I love the "freebies" I get with it. There maybe some card blanks, with the envelopes. A selection of stamps for you to create with. Dies for you to try and they are not poor quality either
A sample of ribbon, gemstones and other sparkly bits. Maybe some cardboard tags and sometimes a sheet of sentiments too.
Always more than enough to produce a dozen or so cards.
Most companies will offer subscriptions and many give away another free gift as an incentive when you sign up.
You will get substantial savings, and you will know that your copy is reserved especially for you, and delivered to your door.
But take your time. Look at lots of publications before you decide which one is right for you.
Look at what they offer. Do you like the ideas? Is the information what you are looking for? Most subscriptions are for a year.
And a year is a long time if you get it wrong!
For a selection of magazines on many hobbies try MoreMags and they will ship to many parts of the world. Check them out for yourself and see if it is what you want
Try the library for a selection of magazines to look at, before you make your final choice. Browse them to see if you like the content and the style of cards the magazine covers.
