24th August 2018


Papercraft Magazines Designer of the Year 2018

It’s that time of year again where we look for the UK’s best papercrafters as part of our annual Papercraft Magazines Designer of the Year competition!

The four winners will win a spot on our Design Team, alongside a whole host of amazing craft goodies, including a money-can’t-buy experience day! So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to raid your craft stash and send us your fabulous projects!

Every entrant who signs up using the form below will receive a free digital copy of Die-Cutting Essentials 29, worth £9.99, and advice from last year’s winners!

The Criteria

We’re looking for four designers who can show a multitude of talents in their papercrafting, along with creativity and originality.

For your chance to win, you will need to submit two cards and one other papercraft project (this can be a scrapbook page, a mini book, or any other off-the page item but strictly no cards for the third entry), so that we can get a good idea of your creative range.

Entries must arrive no later than 7th December 2018.

How to enter

To register yourself as an entrant, please fill in your email address below. We’ll send you some top tips from previous winners, and as a bonus we’ll also send you a link to a free digital version of Die-Cutting Essentials magazine issue 29.

We promise we’ll always keep your data safe and will never share it with or sell it to other companies for marketing purposes. Our full privacy policy is available at

    Hi I am from the USA and I want to know if we are allowed to enter in your contest? I love your magazine I can't wait till the next issues come out. Unfortunately we're really live at in the United States we have to wait a month or two for your new issues. It's so sad😢. I just want to thank all of you that have put so much hard work in every issue of these amazing magazines.
