Simply Homemade Magazine

Our Design Team member Helen had three of her cards featured in Simply Cards magazine last month and one of them also appeared on the cover of the magazine!

She made three cards using our 'Silhouette Romance' Irresistible Images which you can find here on the website.  There's a great range of these image packs to choose from - all pre-coloured and cut square although you can die cut them into different shapes if you want to.  They are great for quick cards or if you're making cards in bulk.  You can see the whole range here on the website.

Here are the cards:

As well as the image panels, Helen also used a selection of LC Designs Dinkies sentiments - you can find the full range here.

And in keeping with the romantic theme; Helen also created this super make:

Irresistible Images - Roses
With our Irresistible Images pack 'Roses' see the pack here  WOW! isn't this just gorgeous, clean and simple, perfect for a wedding, get well, mum or birthday etc...  we love it!
Competition Time

If you would like to win yourself one of our Irresistible Images packs to make cards like these then just leave us a comment, based on romance - who would be your perfect dinner date? mmm., can think of a few nice candidates, don't get us started, Cap'n Ross Poldark anyone? 
We will pick 2 lucky winners next Tuesday 02 Feb, good luck!

And here is our lucky winner from last weeks' competition 

Jane Willis who said: Wonderful papers and the cards show the versatility of them beautifully. My favourite is the blue dandelion clock card, for the purely personal reason that dandelion clocks are among my absolute favourite images, Jane
