HAPPY NEW YEAR
Hello and Happy New Year! Kim here for a Tuesday with the Team post! First and foremost, how luck am I to work with such an amazing group of creative souls. I sometimes have to pinch myself!
My project today is actually one I worked on in November but did not get a chance to share. In December, my focus quickly went to cards, gift buying and a trip to Mexico. Now it’s time to get back into a creative routine and practice!
SIMPLE SCRAPBOOKING LAYOUT
My layout background was created with two sheets of patterned paper from the Delish 12” Paper Pad covered with the acetate bird sheet. The title and embellishments were cut from papers of the same collection, they add the slightest bit of colour to an otherwise pretty monotone colour scheme. I’ve added a few puffy stickers [also from Paper House Productions] to the lover right corner.
I used Tombow adhesives to keep everything down. I am a LOVER of the liquid Mono adhesive…so simple to use, never clogs for me and creates an awesome paper to paper bond! Great for the embellishments!WHAT’S TO COME
I look forward to another year with team CSM! Look for more wonderful Sketchy Challenges from Kerry Engel…here is January’s!
Connie Nichol will continue to share frugal tips and techniques, Cathy Allan will WOW us with her stamping magic, Allison Orthner will get you using your camera creatively, Karen Ellis will add some mixed media to your world and our guest designers will inspire you with project shares in the magazine and on our blog! I will continue to help out with social media, happily posting on Instagram, Facebook and on the blog!
A happy TEAM such as we have, can only exist with positive encouragement from the top! We are blessed to all be friends with the TWO lovelies who’s vision 11 years ago keeps growing strong! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Jackie and Katharina who allow us to grow creatively under their umbrella! You two ROCK!!!
