Hello everyone, Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a fun process video creating a Travellers Notebook featuring a variety of products by  Prima  Marketing. Travellers Notebooks are trending and I can see why.  These compact notebooks can be used for a variety of applications.  You can create a bullet journal, use them for writing, note-taking, sketching, mixed media, take them to crafty classes to name a few uses.  Using Eileen Hull’s Journal Scoreboard die is perfect to fit the inserts or add pages.  This journal just returned from Spain and I filled it with inspiration.

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m back on the blog today to share with you a fun Disney themed scrapbook layout. Spring Break has just finished here in parts of BC and with Spring Break, that usually means there is at least someone going on a trip to Disneyland, which has inspired me to scrapbook some of the photos from my own Disneyland trip back in August of 2010. The jumping off point for my project was the Say Cheese 4 collection from Simple Stories which I combined with some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and ink from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this fun Believe Double Page Scrapbook Layout. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my scrapbook layout. When creating my layout, I love to mix the different patterned papers together out of the 6×8…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick and easy scrapbook layout about my recent foray into yoga.  Yoga is not something I’d ever done before, but I’m always open to trying new things.  I wasn’t sure I’d like it but I did.   Especially the Aromatherapy Deep Stretch and Relaxation class!  In order to scrapbook this I snapped a picture of my new yoga mat and a screenshot of yoga appointments during my trial week.   The screenshot was originally a very vibrant grass green so I adjusted the hue to purple in Photoshop Elements so that it would match my yoga mat and background paper.  Super easy to do and made the whole scrapbooking process much easier and gentle on the eyes. I started with a beautiful piece of paper from the FabScraps Serenity line.  The double-sided patterned papers from this line have soft muted colours and patterns featuring botanicals,…

Hi friends…Noreen Smith from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here! Have you ever been so excited about something that you just couldn’t wait to get it? That you had to have it – NOW? That’s the way I felt about the new Explorer Collection and the Camouflage Paper Pack! When these new products launched earlier this week I ordered them right away, but knew they wouldn’t be here for a week or so. Thank goodness both collections are available as Digital Art Kits! I purchased them online, downloaded them, and within minutes was using them to create digital layouts. Since I’m a Boy Mom who lives close to the Rocky Mountains and has a cabin in the woods, these papers and embellishments seemed to be made just to highlight our family photos! The outdoorsy patterns, rustic colors, and camping, fishing, and hiking imagery will be perfect to document any kind of masculine photos and…

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!

Repeat with Picked Raspberry and again with Crackled Pistachio to create background paper. Remember to dry between applications. Die cut prepared cardstock using one of the dies from Sizzix Mixed Media #5 Die Set. Adhere pattern paper to the top of chipboard. Adhere prepared background to top of prepared chipboard. Stamp…
