Hi friends- Eileen Hull here from sunny and warm Virginia! Yesterday it hit 70 degrees out and it seems I caught a touch of spring fever. I decided to make a thank you card in pretty pastels to celebrate spring. Using Dies to Make Stamps I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me happier than finding multiple ways to use my dies.  I decided to go through my Thinlits collection and create stamps from some of my favorite elements. I also used a frame shape from the Trinket Box die and was happy that it fit perfectly on the front of an A-2 card! Such a fun way to use your dies. My ColorBox Blends inks by were used to stamp the design – Blends are an applicator, inker, and re-inker all in one. They have ten times as much ink as a stamp pad. Blends are a Crafters…

Welcome to March…Pam Bray here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog creating a fun little mixed media tag. Time to start creating and what better way but to grab some Tim Holtz fabulous products to create with! I am sharing a tutorial on how easy the Ranger Distress Oxides are to use along with Sizzix Dies and Stampers Anonymous Stamps to “create” a mixed media tag!

Today I’m sharing my layout, inspired by our March Sketchy Challenge. Sketches are always a great place to start your creative process…it’s almost like oil for  the cogs of your creative brain.I like to flip and rotate sketches to see all the different ways I can play with it. As you see by my finished layout I opted to rotate counter clockwise. My large block became two photos to fill a similar space and my two small squares became a 4×6 photo with a small inset photo. Let your brain work with the spaces of the sketch but be open to mix it up! You’ll be amazed at how many ways one sketch can unfold differently on several layouts! Here are some of the supplies I pulled out to work with! I chose to play with the  Creative Memories Secret Garden collection including their paper and stickers. This collection is…

Hello and happy Tuesday! It is Jayme Loge here hoping all you Creative Scrapbookers are having a lovely morning with some signs of spring. Where I live, we’ve been buried under an endless ‘polar vortex’. While it has meant a lot of time indoors for scrapbooking I am totally craving some outdoor life! It was a good opportunity to tackle some of the photographs in my ‘to be scrapbooked’ folder. My usual process is to start with a photograph and find paper and embellishments to suit, but I had the lovely Wild Whisper Designs “Farmhouse”  paper pack that was just calling. I ended up choosing two pictures of my daughter, Avery, taken about 11 years apart! And both featured the great outdoors, so I could at least revel in the memory of it… I first scrapbooked the more recent picture. I like to wait until the school year is over…
