We have some very exciting news to share with you at All Dressed Up
We are very lucky to have been featured in issue 51 of Complete Cardmaking Magazine, for those who have not heard of Complete Cardmaking Magazine it is the UK's first magazine dedicated to digital crafting, each issue comes with a jam packed CD ROM which features lots of digital elements including Digital Stamps & Papers. 
With this issue there is 9 digital stamps from All Dressed Up, 2 of which are totally exclusive to Complete Cardmaking, there is also 5 digital papers. 

Here is some of the fantastic cards featured made by some of the Dressy Girls...

This is from our very own cover girl Lyndsey . Lyndsey has used Little Bookworm which is one of the free images with the magazine, or she can be purchased here 

This next card is such a fun boys card from Stacey, It features the brilliant It's a Pirate Life which is one of the images from the magazine (the digital papers are also from the magazine) or the image can be purchased here 

This fab box card is so adorable and is made by Anne, This features one of the exclusive images along with digital papers which are also free with the magazine. 

This next card is bittersweet for us, it is a beautiful card made by our lovely Viv...whilst it is an amazing card it also is Viv's last day with us as a Dressy Girl :( Viv was one of our original Dressy Girls and has always been not only a brilliant Design Team member but also a great friend to all the team and she will be sorely missed by everyone and we all wish her the very best. 
Viv has used B Is for Bear which is such a cute baby card image, again this is another one that comes free with the magazine, or by clicking here 
Complete cardmaking can be purchased from 24th July from the following retailers- 
Moremags, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury & Hobbycraft
