Magazine Review – Craft Stamper (Oct 11)

26 Sep

Here we have another Magazine Review for you, kindly done by Emma Galloway, from the Sparkly Fairy.

1.  What is your name, your business name and what do you make?

My name is Emma (The Sparkly Fairy), I am a blogger ( and a maker of hand-crafted cards and jewellery. You can find me on Facebook (

2.       Which magazine do you buy/subscribe to?

Craft Stamper        (Website:

3.  How much is it and how often does it come out?

It is a monthly magazine and costs £4.25. 

4.  Which issue are you going to review?

October 2011

5.  Does it have a free gift, if so what is it and have you made/used it?

The regular free gift is a rubber stamp. I haven’t used it as yet but have added it to my past collection of Craft Stamper stamps to use in the future.

6.   Why do/did you buy it?

I subscribe to this magazine as it is the only UK dedicated stamping magazine on the market.

7.  What are your favourite regular features?

There are a number of regular features I enjoy such as ‘Over To You’ which features work from other readers and ‘Blog of the Month’. There is always a good giveaway page too.

8.  Tell us about some of the articles?

The articles in this issue cover a broad spectrum. This time the focus is on stamping on fabric .

Tactile Textile – stamping on fabric with Stazon ink by Liesbeth Fidder

Hocus Pocus a gothic altered art project by Penny Nuttall with a Halloween feel.

Sur La Table – how to stamp and create table linen by Rachel Jackson

9. Is there anything you don’t like about the magazine?

There is nothing I dislike about this magazine – it has a good mix of projects, technique and inspiration. Its projects are of a high quality and aimed at the serious stamper!

10.  Have you ever been featured in the mag, or thought about sending something in, if so tell us about it?


11.  Would you recommend the magazine and why?

Yes, but only if you are interested in rubber stamping, it is a niche publication but an excellent one!

12.  What would you rate it out of 10, with 10 being excellent and 1 being Very Poor?
