We look at what’s inside issue 182 of Papercraft Essentials

Issue 182 of Papercraft Essentials is on sale on Thursday 5th December and we’re leaving 2019 with a bang! This issue you’ll receive our Celebrations Card Kit which is perfect for special occasions.

With our Celebrations Card Kit you’ll receive 30 numbers, 4 papers, 14 toppers and 28 die-cut and foiled sentiments. That’s not all! We’re also providing acetate, sequins, 3D foam pads AND 4 pre-cut aperture card blanks so you can create extra-special designs.


Our Design Team has done an amazing job with this kit. Turn to page 45 to see Jo Boland create a set of celebratory designs for women. The pre-cut aperture card blanks included with the kit make it so simple to create stylish shaker cards! On page 50, Kirsty Maluga showcases her cards for men. Helping you to design for graduations, birthdays and much more.

If that’s not enough, issue 182 also includes giftwrap ideas using your kit! Laura Bradley shares how to make gift bags and boxes, plus a pretty rosette and anniversary frame. Don’t miss her projects on page 54.


As well as this, we have lots of new techniques to learn, so you can go into 2019 confident in your cardmaking ability. Turn to page 31 to see Ingrid Vichova’s Beginner’s guide to metallic stamping. Or try out Marie Jones’s skill-building guide to foiled die-cutting! Both are beautiful techniques that will really make your designs pop. And if you just can’t wait to try them, have a go a Marie’s bonus card here.


As well as all of this, issue 182 includes new releases from Anna Marie Designs, Phill Martin, Hunkydory and Creative Expressions. There’s also our usual range of budget ideas from stretching your stamps to upcycling your  old book stash – you won’t want to miss this!
