Sneak Peak of Craftstamper April edition

A first for me! One of my bags is featured in the April edition of Craftstamper magazine. I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and left such lovely comments, they are really appreciated, especially as there are so many gorgeous crafty blogs to visit. It really does encourage me to continue crafting especially when having a mojo meltdown like I've had this week! 

This is a card send in a birthday swap. The little girl rubber stamp is from Kreativ Hobby and is stamped on smooth white card. The backing paper is from Prima botannicals or romantique not sure which.

This is a card I made a while ago and never blogged. It is a folded card and opens to reveal a diagonal pocket which has a bookmark similar to the front panel inside. The stamps are from artistic outpost.

Have a great weekend. I do hope the sun decides to come out sometime today LOL!

Happy Crafting xx

Many congratulations on your gorgeous bags project in CS Paula which I absolutely love and will have to have a go at doing.
It's so lovely when you get published which I remember well being a former contributor to CS.
Your cards here look absolutely gorgeous too.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Gorgeous bag but then they always are. You are my favourite "bag lady"! LOL! I remember the bag you made from a book. I tried to find it on your blog to have another look. Can you revisit that project at some time? Beautiful cards. Really like the little girl stamp you have used on the first card. TFS.
Regards Florence xx

You deserved to be a cover girl. I actually cancelled my subscription to CS but glad I was entitled to this issue so I could see your bags in print. Love them as much as the first time I say you alter bags on your Blog.
Gorgeous cards. That little girl is so precious and as for Flappers, I have a weak spot for this era.

Paula, congratulations on your brilliant bag tutorial in CS. I am so chuffed I guessed right lol!

These cards are both stunning, as you know, the way you do photo stamps just blows my mind but the other card is absolutely gorgeous too!(Whenever I try and do photo stamps they always turn into grainy blobs, wish I could come and visit you to watch you do it lol)
