Welcome to our January issue! As always, our January issue offers up another helping of seasonal treats for everyone! I think our Christmas issues are my favourites to work on, although all the fake snow (sssh, don’t tell anyone it’s fake!) we use in the photoshoots does have a nasty habit of getting EVERYWHERE :) This issue has some stunning Winter inspiration for you to drool over, I know I did! The Masterclass projects created by Anna Karin are just amazing, the layering details plus that beautiful colour scheme makes these projects some of my favourites. I’m always keen to try out new things, and I must say I’ve never used slate as a substrate for an art project before. Jo Firth Young has now got me checking out slate coasters, placemats, you name it! I love how she used her slate, check it out on page 28. In this issue, we also have inspirational tutorials from Jenny Marples, Tania Ahmed and Helen Chilton (to name but 3), some stunning cards featuring the most gorgeous stamps from Tracey Hey, and some fabulous art from our talented readers in our Ready Set Stamp gallery. Lots for you all to experiment with! Have a wonderfully crafty month everyone!
