Digital Crafting Essentials Magazine

I've been waiting excitedly for this magazine to come out... because Handmade Harbour is featured in its pages (and on the CD that comes with it!)!

It has to be said it isn't a cheap buy - but to be fair, you do get an awful lot for your money!  There are two free CDs that come with the magazine, and adding up how much it would cost for all the digis and papers included if you bought them in the usual way, it would come to well over £100.  So £9.99 starts to look much more appealing!

I have a BIG thank you to say to design team members Lynne and Laura, who each made some gorgeous cards for the magazine using Handmade Harbour digis and papers.

Creating for a magazine was over and above what was expected of them as design team members but they rose to the challenge with bags of enthusiasm and professionalism.  Working internationally has some difficulties when you have magazine deadlines to meet, but it all worked out really well.  Thank you so much, ladies!

Digital Crafting Essentials is in UK shops now - you'll find it in larger supermarkets and WHSmiths as well as many newsagents.  It's also available to order online here (and they do ship worldwide).

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with Digital Crafting Essentials and love what they've done with the images and cards we supplied them.  I'd love to do it all over again!

Well done Wendy, it's a great achievement and one you should be naturally proud of. Your images are lovely :)
Well done to the ladies on making such great cards :)

The magazine sounds great - I shall have to look out for it when I'm at the shops, especially as I've really just started to get into digital crafting

Picked this up today after reading your post earlier. I did have to think twice about parting with almost £10, but as you said the cover discs are really worth it even if you only use a few of the images. Your images and papers are great (but I have to say that, don't I!) and as I am a fan of Jellypark, it's lovely to have some cute images from them too....and the free software is really useful.
