We did it!
Take a look at our reader testers’ makes this month!
Diane Williams Q What an adorable pooch! Tell us about your lovely card.
I wanted to make a photo card that I could display all year round. So, I made a simple 6x6in easel card and matching drawer, then mounted the card on top. The calendar acts as the stopper for the easel. This card is a useful desk tidy and date reminder, as well as a wonderful memory of my old dog, Hugo.
Q What is your top tip for using photos in your makes?
A Don’t be afraid to add embellishments onto your photo, it adds interest! Sue Cass Q You’re one of our original Reader Testers, thank you for a decade worth of cards!
A I can’t believe we’re on issue 200! For this project, I made simple sliding pop-ups – super effective, and they fold flat for posting.
Q A picture paints a thousand words... A
It’s so easy to leave photos on our phones nowadays, so I make mini books for my family from special events and visits. My grandchildren get a birthday book full of photos as a reminder of their past year. Even from a young age they have loved looking through these books and treasure them.
Lore Green Q What was your inspiration for this project?
I loved the idea of doing mini scrapbook-style layouts for this project, and putting the photographs on the front of the card. It’s a great way to share memories and give someone a personal card that they can keep, or even add to a scrapbook of their own!
Q Tell us about your poppy card! A
I added an extra interactive element to the poppy card – a sequin shaker in front of the photograph! I used a Sheena Douglass stamp, which I fussy cut using a craft knife to get around the fine details.
