  • You can craft magazine

    I bought this mag yesterday, bcoz I felt the need too! It is great for card makers, or maybe for card makers who are just starting off. Well at least this issue was geared towards the card maker. It had loads of stuff free.....

    ribbon
    buckles
    cards in two different sizes
    mini pegs
    felt shapes
    cut out greetings, alphabet and shapes
    springtime paper
    envelope template
    other templates inside the mag

    Inside the mag there were loads of ideas and details of how to make cards using the stuff provided. It cost £7.99, so not too bad. I've no intention of getting into card making, but since i have the stuff looks like my family members will be getting some home made cards for their birthdays! whick will be cheaper than the usual couple of quid I spend in clintons!!!

    I'm going to keep the mini pegs tho for something else, I need to come up with something to use those for in my paintings..or something!

    So i think for what I got it was quite good value for money...the ideas inside have given me an idea for a project..so watch this space...lol!

    Gosh, it sounds rather expensive £7.99!?!
    I think I'd prefer to spend ot on craft supplies so I can make more stuff to sell... I suppose you got quite a lot free.... then again its not really free, as they would be included in the price and thats why its so expensive...
    Oh well, I might get it, but probably not reguarly!

          Yo Can Craft Magazine

          £7.99 is expensive for a magazine, but this isn’t just a magazine, it’s a great quality craft kit. It contains loads of projects with a modern slant. You don’t have to go out and buy additional supplies; everything you need is in the kit (apart from the basic glue and scissors). I’ve just subscribed to You Can Craft as you get a free Fiskars punch set in a case worth £29, and each issue works out at around £5.55, when you consider what you get, this is a great offer.

          The thing I love about this mag is it’s not full of adverts, which most other magazines are. It’s printed on far better quality paper, so it will keep well on the shelf; it contains ALL of the templates used to create each project. The paper you get with it isn’t printed on magazine paper as with some of the other publications; it’s double sided light card stock the same quality as you’d buy from the craft shop. I just love reading through, and making a card straight away, have everything in the kit, card, templates, embellishments, letters, ribbons etc. I’d recommend it, especially on subscription, but only if you love making cards, as this tends to be the main focus.

          It’s the best magazine I’ve read.

                    You can Craft Mag

                    I can't believe you actually Googled me.

                    Apologies if my review seemed biased, but I was honestly so impressed and excited about finding a magazine that exceeded my expectations and suited my needs. This was a honest review that I thought other crafters would appreciate reading before they decided to pay the whopping £7.99.

                    P.S. I don't work for this magazine….or any other…..although I have to say it would be fantastic to play craft all day AND get paid for it! Great site, my first blogg!
