DIY: Toile is Here!

November 11, 2013

Remember when I told you guys I was working on a holiday gift guide? Well I wasn’t kidding! It’s here!

If I could attach bells and drag this thing in on a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade float, I totally would. That’s how excited I am about Toile…not to mention, I really like parade floats.

In this magazine you’ll find tutorials, videos, printables, recipes, exclusive discounts and even a quick cameo from Mr. Damask Love! Be sure to click around and enjoy every page.

OH! And did I mention…there’s an exclusive stamp set designed by yours truly ? Very few sets are available though. This stamp set is pretty much the crafty equivalent to Tickle Me Elmo. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and we will not stand for any brawls over the last one!

Thanks for hanging in there with me while I worked behind the scenes to get this puppy published! It’s been pretty quiet here in DamaskLoveTown, but me thinks you’ll forgive that once you start flipping through Toile! For the rest of this week, I’ll let you hang out and enjoy the magazine, then starting next week, I’ll have some fun Toile-related posts that’ll keep the party goin. Cause that’s how we roll. We keep the party goin.

And if Pinteresting is you thing, go ahead and use this image to bookmark Toile. That way you can come on back to continue reading!

  21. This is incredible, Amber. What a labour of love! I adore what you said about the cobbler’s children; I was so surprised to read that you’re like me & are horrible at giving cards. It’s is really difficult to create content for a blog and many cards that are basic enough to reproduce, so thank you so much for the inspiration!

  35. Toilet it’s amazing, stylish, so creative and inspirational!!! I haven’t enough word to describe it. I wish to congratulate you for the incredible work you had made with this magazine.

    Thank so much for share it πŸ˜‰

  36. Hi Amber!

    I’ve been studying for an exam, and it’s the first moment Ive had to look at your magazine and it’s stunning!! I work full-time and am always amazed at what you do!! Do you have a bunch of little elves helping :-)The magazine is so inspirational, packed with lots of gorgeous pictures and wonderful ideas!I love the pointsetta and had to break down and buy one lol! You are such an enlaber Amber! Thanks for that!!! Us crafters have to stick together!

  37. Amber,
    I downloaded this the very first day you blogged about it, but hadn’t had the time to pop back in and tell you how truly wonderful it is! (I downloaded it in the early wee hours of the morning – that’s how much I wanted to see it!) Now that I have the time, I wanted to make sure to tell you. Thank you so much for sharing this work of art…and sweat…and tears…and apparently frustration. I sure hope we get to have a few follow up blog posts with the forced-removal projects as “bonus features”! πŸ˜‰
    I can only imagine how hard you worked at this; it could truly give many published magazines a run for their money! It’s certainly much better styled than some I’ve seen (but you have such impeccable style, I’m not surprised). πŸ™‚
    Thanks so much again for this gem! I hope you’re planning on publishing another one next year… But no pressure. πŸ˜‰
