Issue 205 of Simply Cards & Papercraft goes on sale next week

22nd May 2020

The shiny issue 205 of Simply Cards & Papercraft is on sale from the 28th May, and what an issue we have for you! Packed with inspiration using the fabulously fun Totally Tropical dies, stamps and embossing folder set.

The Totally Tropical set is the perfect way to escape, and dream of tropical holidays, as well as being ideal for sending cards and makes to loved ones to celebrate their birthdays during this troubling time – with sentiments such as ‘With Love on your birthday’, and ‘Let’s celebrate’.

This issue we have a plethora of inspiration using this must-have set – first up we’ve got all-occasion creations from Sue Hughes, who has created a bright and wonderful collection of cards. For something a little different this issue, we asked Nicky Gilburt to focus on demonstrating how to get more from the impressive embossing folder – where she focuses on upping the skill level to create cards to challenge you!


Issue 205 also comes with a handy set of downloads to help you recreate certain projects in the magazine, head to our Downloads section now to get yours! If you love lettering and creating dimensional makes, then this issue’s templates are just the ticket. Amongst others, you’ll find a handy pop-up box card template to recreate this fabulous card from Sue Hughes…

AND if that wasn’t enough, we asked the amazing Mel Jess to combine both sets to create a fabulous range of gift ideas, keepsakes and more – themed around tropical holidays! Let’s be honest, we’re not sure any of us will make it abroad this year… but we can dream!

What’s more, we’ve teamed up with our sister magazine Creative Stamping – and our Totally Tropical stamp set, co-ordinates perfectly with the Tropical Treetops stamp set with issue 85 of Creative Stamping – the World’s best-selling stamping magazine – it doesn’t hit the shops until the 11th June, but we’ve got a sneak peek of the stamp set here for you!

Our diary is from industry expert Tracy Evans, who is not only is a long-serving member of our Design Team, but also a designer and demonstrator for AALL & Create – she talks to us about her work with the fabulously brand as well as showcasing one or two of her brand-new stamp releases.

We also have new products from Crafter’s Companion, who we’ve even teamed up with to offer you a 20% discount – find out more on pages 36-38 of the magazine, and claim your discount off the amazing Cascading Sentiment stamps & dies shown here.

As always, we have an industry-leading interview, this issue’s is with Sam Calcott from Mixed-Up Craft, and the brains behind CraftStash‘s brand-new product range, Made To Surprise

Her brand-new range focuses on putting the fun back into crafting and we’ve fallen head over heels for it – and before we forget, we have an 10% discount on her products over at CraftStash!

  • I subscribed for a trial of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine after picking up an issue in WH Smiths as I was just starting out with card-making. I have now received Issue 205 as my second trial subscription mag. Will definitely continue with the subscription. I am enjoying both the mags and the inspirations for cardmaking immensely. Thank you.
