Mollie Makes.....

Gosh it's midweek already where does the time go,I've been baby and dog sitting again this week so I haven't got a lot done. On Saturday I went to Hobbycraft to pick up some paints and saw a magazine I'd never seen before. The front cover drew me to pick it up,I flicked through and wow I was sold,I don't buy craft magazines very often but this little beauty Mollie Makes is an absolutely must have if you love vintage,handmade,making,thrifting and shabby chic,you also get a gift with each issue. It's not a papercrafting magazine but the photos and articles are so inspiring that I will bring some of the ideas onto cards and scrapbook pages. It hasn't left my side since I bought it,lol,I've subsribed to it now so I don't miss a copy.
Here's the front cover that made me pick it up:



This month's cover gift was a smartphone cover,this is what I did with mine, I changed the front of it by adding a flower and heart rather than the bird. I still used the felt supplied but cut out the flower using Marianne 'English Rose'die. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and looking forward to next month's which is a felt flower kit.



This magazine will also be available next month in U.S., Ausralia and the rest of Europe next month so my international friends won't miss out.
