Issue 744 hits the shelves on this Thursday (22nd February) and we thought we’d keep you going until then with this issue’s bonus digital downloads…

This month’s amazing free Altenew layering die set is perfect for floral-themed all-occasion makes, and we’ve falled head over heels in love with it – it’s the ideal floral addition to your craft stash, whether you’re making cards for loved ones, female friends or all-occasion makes.


If this amazing die set wasn’t enough for you, we thought we’d treat you to a selection of bonus downloads to complement the dies – and so we’ve got 10 digital sentiments, 36 toppers, 5 digital papers and 20 colour swatches two to help you recreate some of the inspiration from the magazine.

As always SCP’s amazing Design Team were on hand to share their inspiration using the free gifts, from technique-filled cards to fabulously floral off-the-page projects – they covered it all!


On this card, Ingrid Vichova combines the free layering die with the colour swatch downloads – to help her add depth and extra dimension to her card through colour.
