Claireabellemakes In Handmade Magazine

It’s been a great couple of months for press for Claireabellemakes. I’m so grateful to all the publications that get in touch – it’s still so exciting to see my work in print!

This month I was featured in Handmade Magazine which is one of Australia’s most popular craft titles. Yay! Oh and my face was on the front cover eek!Handmade-Magazine-Australia

It wasn’t until I received my copy last week that I realised I had a two page spread all about Claireabellemakes. The team at Handmade were so lovely and asked me lots about my inspirations and creative journey. Handmade-Magazine-Australia-Claireabellemakes-Feature

One of the pictures they used in the feature is a little hint about an upcoming blog post….let’s just say Cambridge is in bloom!Handmade-Magazine-Australia-Claireabellemakes

Thanks for letting me share today! I also wanted to update with you guys on new products. Despite my intention to release something every month this year, May has been crazy busy with a lot of behind the scenes freelance work and it hasn’t quite happened. BUUUUT, I have restocked some wall art pieces and June has some exciting new releases to come. Watch this space!



Recent Press For Claireabellemakes

You guys, December is whizzing by! Since January, I’ve made a point of reflecting on my business month to note achievements and productivity. I can’t wait to look back on it at the end of the year.

One of the things I am so grateful for (as well as support from you!) is press features. It is still pretty surreal for me to see my face or projects in print and the excitement never wears off.

First up is Simply Crochet issue 39. I am so pleased to have a double page article all about Claireabellemakes. I talk about my business organisation, current favourite crafts and when G helps with my projects.Simple-Crochet-Magazine-Issue-39


Simply Crochet are currently offering 3 issues for £5 which is an absolute bargain. The magazine has been a favourite of mine for a while now and I remember getting issue 1 when it launched!

Back in September I was approached by Creativity Magazine (by Do Crafts) and I’m so pleased they included me in their Blog of the month feature. Do-Crafts-Creativity-Issue-64-Claireabellemakes Claireabellemakes-Creativity-Magazine

Keep an eye out for issue 66 of Creativity Magazine where I have some scrapbooking projects to share. I hope to work with them more in the future and to grow my craft writing profile in 2016, so watch this space!

Cambridge Edition Magazine Features

I’ve been lucky enough to have some lovely local press lately. As you have probably gathered, Cambridge is a huge part of my brand for Clairebellemakes, so it has been great to be recognised in my home city!

Here’s a little look at my magazine features for Cambridge Edition in the April and May 2015 issues. Can we firstly just appreciate the awesome covers?!


The April magazine saw a mention from Ruthie Collins in her Art Insider column. A little plug for my positivity postcards too!


The May magazine included a two page feature about my blog and why I like to create. You can read the feature online here.

Finally, I was really chuffed to be interviewed by blogger and designer maker Sally Makes Art. I love the questions Sally asked me! You can read the interview over on her blog here.

Thanks for letting me share today!
