A to Z!

A to Z Embellishments Fall 2012 

Good morning! Another special offering from CardMaker out this month:  I got this beautiful special issue in the mail last week and it is super-sized packed full of techniques, embellishments, design elements and trends from A to Z!  112 projects on a whopping 148 detailed, full color  pages. I got a LOT of ideas from this issue as well as seeing some products I was not familiar with (honeycomb paper?!) and now really look forward to trying them out!

So fun seeing lots of "my peeps" in there, plus terrific designs from the editors of CardMaker themselves!  I have three cards in this issue:  C for Chevron, D for Doily, and P for Punches!) My favorite submission is this card using Spellbinders Edgeabilities to create the chevron. See the magazine for step by step instructions.  Greeting is from my Arranged with Love set.

Unfortunately I do not have an extra copy of this issue (and I am sooo keeping the one I have!), but it is one you will want to keep in your crafting arsenal! I love how they went from A to Z with naming all the different ways to dress up your cards, highlighting the classic tried and true ones and as well as ones we forget about or very inventive new things I hadn't seen before!

You can order this product (or download a digital version immdediately) from Annie's by clicking of the A to Z issue above. (and you'll see more pictures of projects featured inside at that link) Enjoy!
