The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Advertise your shop in our new Directory.

The June issue of Creative Crafting will see the launch of our new Crafters Directory. Times are hard and all of our businesses need as much promotion as they can get. We will be adding this new section complete with clickable links that should hhopefully bring lots of new customers to your shops and websites.
We hope that you love reading our magazine as much as we love to create it for you, it does however, take lots of time to produce and has costs that I am currently covering myself. In order to keep it going we will be asking a small charge for advertising in the directory.
Please support us so that we can continue to bring you our colourful issues and hopefully one day we will be able to print hard copies.

Advertising starts at just £2. For more information and to book your slot please visit our website Creative-Crafting.

if you would like us to email you an example page complete with links, please email us at thecrystallady@creative-crafting.com.

Thank you for your continuing support.
