Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

One of my favourite things is truly a scrapbook layout about anything CANADIAN!  I sincerely have a soft spot for this beautiful country I call home. Over the next few weeks I will be highlighting some layouts our design team created about their hometowns! I LOVE THEM ALL (Yep the layouts and the wonderful girls on my team)!

Meet Kim Gowdy


Kim has been apart of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine almost since the beginning! She was most definitely our biggest cheerleader from day 1 and over the years has become an important part of our online presence, design team and editorial planning.  THANK YOU Kim!

Here is Kim’s take on our page call “My Hometown”


SUPPLIES: Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock, FabScraps patterned paper, Sizzix dies and Big Shot die Cutting machine, Stampin’ Up! buttons, Clearsnap ink, May Arts twine, Xyron Create-A-Sticker adhesive.

To create this layout Kim used some gorgeous barnwood like paper from FabScraps Beachcomber Collection.

This incredibly fun die from Sizzix called Townscape

And she stuck all those difficult to glue down parts using the Xyron Create-A-Sticker!


I would love to see a layout about your Hometown!

Share it with me for a chance to be published on our blog or in an upcoming issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  Send your submissions directly to me Jackie@canadianscrapbooker.ca
