Craft Creations Magazine Issue 10 - Summer

Some pretty flower designs to make up into cards which are sure to be well received along with two lovely bright designs which are very suitable for sending to children.
Different ribbons and beads are used to make the main support for the flowers in this bouquet. The cross stitched flowers are worked onto Aida Plus fabric as it has a special backing to prevent it from fraying when you cut it.
This appealing design is made by tracing the shapes and cutting them out to make up the picture. You can use white card and colour with pencils or why not try cutting it out from pieces of coloured card.
This fun card is made using real balloons for a colourful effect or, try making a pastel version for a new baby card.
An easily stitched bookmark of a little bookworm complete with glasses and engrossed in reading his book, a great keepsake which will also come in handy for any reader.
Heather Shute has an ingenious way of using pips from all types of citrus fruit. The pips are painted to resemble the colouring on real birds and stuck onto the cards after painting a little scene for them to fit into.
The first half of our beautiful shadow alphabet. Stitched onto off-cuts from net curtains, the stitches are worked onto the back of the fabric and the fine net allows the colour to show through.
This shaker card should appeal to any football fans in the family, you can change the colours to suit their favourite team. Use any football rubber stamp or drawing, it does not need to be exactly like ours.
This glass painting is suitable for beginners as the lines are simple. Painted onto acetate sheet, you will only need two colours and an outliner for this picture.
A Fimo design with step by step instructions. The mermaid is sitting on a rock on a sandpaper beach decorated with tiny shells, these are very easy to collect from most beaches on your summer holidays.
The idea of using 'nylons' to make brooches came about during the last war. These days the range of colours has increased making it much easier to get bright colours into the design. Monica Watkins has used the same method to make pretty flowers and butterflies to go onto her cards.
Anita Light has come up with a great way of using out of date catalogues instead of just throwing them into the bin. Cut out the shape using a template and simply fold and tie to make pretty paper butterflies to decorate your greetings cards.
A striking design worked in white on a dark blue background to give a strong contrast, made from paper flower shapes with fringe flower centres.
The paper yachts sailing along on their painted sea are so reminiscent of lovely summer days spent by the sea. If you cannot paint, other ways of making the sea which work just as well, are described in the article.
Cut a stencil using a sharp craft knife and colour the card behind using chalks to achieve the pretty pastel colours in this design.
A pretty stitched bookmark made in just two colours. Worked in diamond eye stitch with a little back stitching. Can be sent as a card and used as a bookmark after the occasion.
Astrid Kenyon has a very refreshing way of writing, she encourages you to have a go at a craft which has often been portrayed as being difficult. She brushes aside all the myths and just shows you how to get on with it in a very straightforward easy way.
The roses trail gently over the hanging basket looking almost real in this ribbon design which is worked onto a fabric background.
