Budget tip: Action My Hobby Card magazine
Yesterday I went to Action again to browse through the craft supplies. Suddenly my eye fell on a stack of hobby magazines... Never seen it before at Action. The magazines turned out to be different “My Hobby Card” packages. Each package contained a magazine with which you can make cards and a bonus. I didn't know this magazine before, but was curious so I bought two packages. In this article my experiences and a few cards I made yesterday.

And then I start with the price, of course it is not a “Budget tip” for nothing. Each package with a card making magazine and an extra sheet cost only €0.99. The normal price according to the cover of the magazine is €5.95. Please note: these are older editions. I opted for a winter and summer edition, which included an extra deco supplement.
With just the magazine you can make 30 different cards. The magazine contains instructions on how to make each card, various sheets with images for the cards, backgrounds, patterns for the 3D cards and vellum paper (transparent paper). The instructions also include what else you need, such as a blank card, ribbons and buttons.
My first cards I made
Yesterday when I got home I immediately started making various cards. It was quite difficult to choose which one first :-).
My experience with My Hobby Card from Action
I think the enormous choice of different cards is very positive. These are really very different cards, think of different occasions to send cards, but the designs are also always different, some cards are modern, others are old-fashioned. Something for everyone. The cards are also easy to make. Without explanation it actually speaks for itself.
A major disadvantage for me was that nothing was punched, so I had to cut out or cut each shape myself. That takes a lot of time and yes, convenience serves people. And because it was quite thin paper, the paper sometimes tore.
Only 99 cents for 30 cards to make... I think it's a really great purchase! I will definitely be making more cards soon :-).
What do you think of these hobby magazines?
