Die-cutting Essentials 56 sneak peek – on sale soon!

If you’ve got Christmas on your mind, Die-cutting Essentials issue 56 is the magazine for you! The new issue is on sale next Thursday (September 5th) and it’s packed with festive ideas and inspiration.

The fab dies which come with this issue are courtesy of Helen Griffin’s Simply Made Crafts brand – and they’re stunning!

This is what your Festive Foliage dies look like…

With a massive 14 dies, it’s perfect for wreaths and swag-building, sentiments, florals and more – and don’t forget that the greenery will do all-occasion makes even after your festive decorations are down!

Female inspiration for the dies in the issue comes from Sue Hughes, who has done her usual neat and pretty job with the most festive of colour palettes.


For a more contemporary spin, Claire Rhodes-Brandon’s created her cards with a hint of pastel and some natural materials, including twine and hessian – which we absolutely love.


Elsewhere in this jam-packed issue, Crafter’s Companion has unleashed its Gemini Mandala dies, there are festive makes for him from Joanna Sheen and master the stunning bokeh-style die-cutting technique with Marie Jones – and a very helpful step by step.

Don’t forget to look out for issue 57 – it’s on sale on September 26th and comes with a fantastic EXCLUSIVE Memory Box panel die set that we are so excited about!

As always, please let me know what you’ve been crafting – we love to see all of your projects! Email me kirstie.mccrum@practicalpublishing.co.uk
