Hi friends! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com to share an idea for using your scrapbook supplies to create a simple but lovely “Farmhouse Chic” décor piece! When I saw the new Homestead Collection from Creative Memories, I immediately noticed how much it reflects the ongoing “Farmhouse Chic” trend in home design and started to think about ways I could incorporate some parts of the collection into décor pieces for my own home. The Homestead Paper Pack is full of lovely botanical, plaid and textured papers that seem right at home in a cozy farmhouse, the coordinating Variety Mat Pack is full of wonderful sayings and quotes, and the intricate Laser-Cut Embellishments are thick and sturdy, and perfect for using on crafting projects! I have a little shelf in our powder room that I like to display seasonal and holiday décor on, so I wanted to create a homey little accent piece…

Spring is in the air! And so is the feeling of spring cleaning. In the craft room, I have been in a “bash my stash” mood in order to help unclutter and organize. I love being able to use up full packages of embellishments or finishing off a roll of washi. It’s such a great feeling! So, when I received my free Sale-a-Bration packs of the Oh So Ombree 6×6 patterned paper I wanted to figure out a way to use it rather than leave it on my shelf collecting dust. It always helps when you love the product that you are trying to “bash”. The ombre style in this paper package allows me to use die cuts to create fast and gorgeous projects. I began with the blue ombre paper and paired it with the Stampin’ Up! Many Layered Blossoms die. The colours are gorgeous and really help this…

DRUM ROLL PLEASE Hello, Easter, and Hello to this gorgeous layout designed by Laura Whitaker, from Trent Lakes, Ontario.

If you are like me and find watching embossing powder change to liquid as it heats up oddly satisfying, this is the technique for you! To create this card first cut out a base from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White Cardstock. I used an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle die.  On a second piece of white cardstock, emboss the brick wall using a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder. Once embossed cut out the brickwall using a slightly small stitched rectangle die from the same  Elizabeth Craft Designs die set.  Adhere the brick wall in the center of the larger stitched rectangle using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Squares. Set aside. Next, on a piece of white cardstock, lay a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stencil down. Apply Ranger Simon Hurley Create ink with a Mini Blending Tool. Lift up the stencil and gently spread the ink filling in the white spots.…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Jayme here with some scrapbook pages I just couldn’t wait to create once I saw the ‘Simple Vintage Coastal’ line from Simple Stories. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them! I love the soft colours and the shabby feel to the patterns- perfect for my kinda messy style! I chose these papers because of the variety of colours and patterns that suit both tropical beach experiences and holidays like mine- on the Emerald Isle. It was not a hot destination, but we spent a lot of time traveling along the Irish coastline. The blues, greens and neutrals worked perfectly for my oceanside photos. First up, I’ll share a page of a less than flattering photo of myself. I’ll own it. Our stop at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge heritage site was not one that I chose. But democracy won and I was outvoted. Over…

Just another fabulous way to showcase so many amazing projects that our followers have shared with us throughout the past 15 years! DRUM ROLL PLEASE There are so many things I love about this layout designed by Cathryn Ledger from Edmonton, Alberta. The cute little birdie cut file looks awesome with all the different pieces of patterned paper showing through. They have a quilted baby bird feel that I love! The soft background with the doilies and the addition of twine flowers with brad centers all work wonderfully together.
