Kick-start 2020 with issue 183 of Papercraft Essentials

The new year will soon be upon us and we can think of no better way to enter 2020 than with this The Next Chapter kit from issue 183!

With issue 183 you’ll receive our The Next Chapter mega card kit, made up of a 4-piece die set, 19-piece stamp set AND an A6 embossing folder. This collection is perfect to make book-themed cards and off-the-page projects for all the family.


Your Cut out & keep is filled with ideas to help you get started with this kit. Turn to page 46 to see Jeanne Jachna’s cards for men and women – plus see a fabulous shaker design! Nicky Gilburt demonstrates a selection of embossing techniques on page 50, while Laura Bradley designs fun bookmarks and gift card holders on page 52.

That’s not all, on page 54 you’ll see Claire Gladman’s cute cards for kids that the little bookworms in your life are sure to love.


If your new year’s resolution is to learn a new cardmaking technique, you won’t want to miss issue 183! Sarah Gray shows how to use your die stash to create masks on page 64, while Debbie Simpson ditches the acetate and makes shaker cards using tulle in our Beginner’s guide on page 30.


As well as all of this, issue 183 contains new releases from some of your favourite brands. Check out the new products from Lavinia Stamps, Paper Addicts, Ranger Simon Hurley Creates and Paper Nest Dolls to name a few! We’re also sharing a range of budget ideas plus the latest instalment of Chloe’s diary.

To find out more about what’s inside issue 183 click over to our Facebook and Instagram pages, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of issue 183 when it hits the shelves on the 2nd January. You can buy yours from or large supermarkets and WHSmith.

Happy papercrafting!
