Do crafts Magazine

Hi Everyone
Due to the overwelming response to the Do Crafts Magazine if you would like to reserve a copy of this magazine on a regular basis you must put your name on our list. Recent issues have been sold out within a week of its release and this has led to dissappointment.
So we are asking you to phone, email or pop into the shop to reserve your copy. This book is packed full of ideas for card makers and scrapbookers alike and each month you will receive a free gift with every issue. Priced at only $4.99 this is a must for any crafter.

thanks a bunch
