Tammy Is A Craft Superstar!

If you read my 2015 review post, you will know that I’ve recently started working with Creativity Magazine (available here). It was a new magazine to me and I wanted to share it with you as 1) I’m really impressed with the projects and styling AND 2) my latest project for them involves Tammy and we all know the internet loves cats!


Now, it’s confession time. Remember in early 2015 when I talked about how much I loved Project Life and how I was going to document all the exciting things that happened over the year? Well life got busy and I completely failed after February. I had a list of events and memories to capture and no time to scrapbook them. It’s definitely a goal of mine to catch up on scrapbooking and have it as a ‘down time’ project just for me.

Anyway, for Creativity Magazine Issue 66, I tested out Do Crafts latest scrapbooking kits and shared my tips and tricks for fun layouts and how to use materials. Tammy is the star of the show and I think she looks the cutest ever. Our friend Martin took the photo years ago and it is amazing how her fluffy face has changed as she has gotten older.


The theme for the January issue is Geometric and I love that cushion project on the front! That reminds me, I have a cushion kit to try from the New Craft House which I must start and share with you soon!


Do you have any tips for me when I finally catch up on my scrapbooking? I have tons of supplies, I just need to get on with it really.



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!
