Some of the crafting magazines I design for give their readers a big package of gorgeous craft materials with each issue. The designers work with the same kit, creating projects to inspire creativity and fill the magazine with colourful ideas. I love to open a new kit and see what treats are included. The picture shows a cross stitched flower project in the middle of being stitched (on my rather untidy table). The flowers were made into cards with ribbons, beads, sparkly sequins and paper embellishments - such a crafty way to spend the day.
