Recently I signed up to 'Ultimate Blogging Challenge', but as it started I thought to myself "This doesn't really apply to me as I crafter..". But after watching Emma Collins video and taking her advice, I realised that with a little tweaking it can apply. So here goes...I am starting a bit late (day 8...oops) but I am hoping to join in each day.
Today challenge was to write a review of a book/magazine...
What I always like in a magazine is a free gift, and with this issue there is a vintage style flower stamp.
The initial flick through in the shop I quite liked what I saw, so decided to buy it. It was priced at £4.50.
The magazine itself is professionally put together and very clear to follow. What I particularly liked was that there was plenty of step-by-step photographed instructions for the project inside (in which there was quite a few), and had clear 'Materials' listed for each project too. As a crafter you like to know what has been used so you can get the same look.
There are a few projects in this issue that I have never attempted before, and are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I would like to have a go as I do like the results.
I also like the section 'Over to You!', which invites readers to submit there work that follows themes with the magazine. There is also a very good website attached (http://www.craftstamper.com) with quite a large selection of resources.
For a magazine that I have overlooked in the past, I really enjoyed reading it and will definitely be adding this to the list of magazines I 'flick' through in the newsagent before deciding which to buy, and I can see myself buying some future issues.
I hope you enjoyed my first ever review, and let see what the Ultimate blogging challenge holds next.
