Issue 135 on sale now!

It’s summer. British summer anyway, where days of grey and random bursts of rain are as promised as all-day tanning sessions and barbecues. But if you’re craving consistency, look no further than PaperCrafter – we had one of our most successful issues ever last month, but our first thought was how can we do better? Which led to us following up our wildly popular free gift from last issue (so many fairies, so many unicorns in our inbox – thank you!) with another doozy, a 45-piece neverending card kit. Which led to our newfound folding expert Amelia Bolton delivering 18 different techniques to add to your crafting portfolio. Which led to our marvellous under the sea papers, our somehow-even-better-than-last-issue Craft Me Quick! double bill (we never realised cacti could be so cute) and our foray into the world of slow crafting, which yielded immensely positive results. Read on for even more details of the bounties to be found in issue 135, and as always, let us know what you think!

Issue 135 on sale now!

1. Neverending Card Kit + 9 Celebration Stamps

Our gift game has been on fire lately, and we’re utterly determined to keep that up. This neverending card kit consists of eight cards, eight papers, and over 30 die-cut motifs – there’s over 45 pieces here. Plus, there’s also a bonus stamp set that you can use again and again. But as always – we’re just excited to see what you do with it!

2. Free Wedding Digi Stamps

It’s peak wedding season, and to celebrate this, we’ve got our glue-soaked mitts on Helen Fitzjohn’s bespoke digi stamp collection. Pairing a regal understated base with a whimsical bride and groom works absolute wonders here – and she’s even thrown in sentiments too. Make someone’s happy day even happier!

3. Under The Sea Paper Collection

You know we love our free papers here at PaperCrafter, but our ultimate goal is to make sure that you love them. And we think we’ve kept up our usual standards with this issue’s bundle of papery goodness. Seahorse, jellyfish, blue whales and mermaids – we could go on, or you could pick up the mag, head to p45 and have a gander over Corinne Bradd’s crafty suggestions. Just remember to bring a towel!

4. Interview: Doris Wai

Doris Wai is many things: an inspiring businesswoman, devoted mother and wife, and a supremely talented letterer – and in being so, her story most likely has something for anyone. She chats about the multicultural brilliance of Toronto and what it was like to grow up there, further details on where she sees her businesses heading in the future, and blesses our backpage with a tear-jerking ode to her little mini-me, Melody.

5. Bumper Giveaways


You know it’s a good giveaway when we’re all struggling to choose which prize we would like to win from the bunch (theoretically – we’re not allowed to enter of course!). Crafter’s Companion is offering up two bundles of its Signature Nautical range (both worth £160 each), there’s the chance to attend The Festival of Quilts (Europe’s leading patchwork and quilting event) and you could win a paper bonanza courtesy of Hunkydory. And that’s not even all the prizes…

6. 900 Digi Stamps

Turns out we’re not quite done with digi stamps, as we have details of where and how you can access our collection of 900. Flick to p77 for further details on this digi stamp overload!
