Studies show that many card makers first started their hobby by making Christmas cards. That’s great to hear and it’s always exciting to add new members to the crafting family! But you quickly realise that it’s hard to save money on Christmas Craft Supplies. Mainly because there are so many beautiful things to choose from.
If you are someone that is thinking about giving Christmas card making a try this year then read on my friend.

My exclusive project with instructions.
Pretty much all the answers to the above issues come via this magazine. Yes, it’s a big ask but it’s also very accurate.
I subscribe to the Readly App so don’t often buy ‘real’ magazines. However, I wanted to give a magazine kit a try.
There’s plenty to choose from but I was really drawn to Lisa Horton’s Premium Magazine.
Watch my video to see what’s inside.
The fear of the blank page is gone because along with the supplies included you have lots of projects and inspiration for the products at your fingertips right there in the magazine.
Designers look at trends and the latest innovations when they bring you products so you can be sure that your projects look fresh and new.
You will spend less on Christmas craft supplies because you have everything you need to make your projects in one kit. You will of course need your basic tool kit and a die-cutting machine if you wish to use the dies and embossing folder in this kit.
Want some REALLY good news? I paid £12.99 for my magazine but you can get it HALF PRICE at CraftStash using the code MAG50

I created this simple fun fold card using the kit.
|1. Trim thick white A4 card to 15 x 19cm||5. Colour the images as shown using Spectrum Noir Tri_blends in|
Gold Brown blend for the house and Dark Red Blend for the heart, candy canes and peppermints. I used a red gem for the door handle.
|2. Score along the long side at 7 cm to create the fold.||6. Glue the house as shown and add Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to the roof, chimney, icing strip, and windows. Sprinkle some glitter on before setting with a heat tool.||Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff|
|3. Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper for the front|
6cm x 14cm and 6.5cm x 14cm
Cut 1 piece of patterned paper for the inside 15cm x 11.6cm
|Add Glossy accents to the candy cane, heart and peppermints.||Glossy Accents|
|4. Die-cut the Ginger Bread House pieces from the same white card||Stamp greeting in black and cut 2 circles from the patterned paper used on the front. I used 1″ and 1.25″ circle punches.|
