Hello everyone Karen Ellis on the blog today with a wood canvas I created featuring products by Dina Wakley for Ranger.

This wood canvas is mounted on my front door and is made with some strips of old pattern papers I found in my scrapbooking stash, some Dina Wakley for Ranger Media paints, scribble sticks and stencil. Supplies Used Ranger Products Used – Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint (Buff, Peacock, Turquoise) – Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks (Black, Red) – Collage Medium 12 x 12 Patterned Papers – Misc Manufacturers Dina Wakley Stencil (Spilled Hearts) – Crafter’s Workshop 16×20 Wood Canvas – Art Alternatives Chipboard sentiment (Love) – Reflections Paper Trimmer…

Hello everyone Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am now the mother of a fourteen-year-old girl. She is feisty and brilliant and amazing and she is going to do wonderful things in this world. She is evolving before my eyes and it is exciting to see her discover her strengths, make mistakes and make choices about whom she is going to be. It’s lovely, and completely unbalancing. Some days she changes faster than I can keep up with and then when I think I can stretch no further, she relaxes and cocoons herself in the safety of home. I take a break from this dance by looking back at old photos and remembering all the little details of who she is and where she has come from. It’s funny the traits that don’t change. Her hands-on approach is one of them. She loved wearing ‘twirly’…

Valentines Day is just around the corner and with two school aged young kids, we are in full swing. While many people aren’t fans of this special day, I am a true believer that any day that puts love and kindness at the forefront is a day worth having. For my family, it’s not focused on a romantic love but instead love to anyone and anything you care about. We make heart shaped pancakes with pink tinted milk, we wear pink or red clothing often speckled with hearts, and we make heart shaped cookies and pizza together for supper. We try to buy board games for the kids so that we can play together but I’ll be honest… the last few board games went quite literally topsy turvy when Mr. Jack Caines slid down the longest snake in the Snakes and Ladders game. It remains to be seen what our…
