Jayme Loge here on this lovely Tuesday in April.  I’m going to confess right off the top that spring has never been my favourite season. It’s wet, and windy and muddy and grey. But this year, with our record breaking, never ending winter I am craving spring like never before.  Bring on the melt! Bring on the mud! Bring on the drab, dusty landscape! Bring on anything but snow for my eyes to see! As a scrapbooker, I can make these wishes come true. I escaped to my scrapbook area and dug out some favourite spring photos. Although it is too soon yet for gardening, it is one of the rituals that I love about the season. I come from a long line of gardeners, and remember many a spring day planting and hoeing and planning with my extended family. My grandparents had the most astounding gardens and I am…

This week, in our regular #RememberingChristy segment, we are looking back to the Fall 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Christy Riopel was an avid art journaler. We could literally fill pages and pages of our magazine with her beautiful work. In the fall 2015 issue, she contributed one of her art journal pages to a feature we did on ‘The Joy of Journaling’.  This design would later become a staple in Chirsty’s art journaling classes. It was the first design she introduced her students to and can probably be found in everyone’s art journal who was lucky enough to have taken one of Christy’s classes. Here is Christy’s design. I hope you are able to find some time today to art journal or find a little you time! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel…

Hey there everyone! Cathie Allan here today sharing with you one of my articles from the Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – Creating Faux Mini-Canvases. I know you are going to LOVE IT! Faux Mini-Canvases by Cathie Allan In this issue, we are going to create “faux mini-canvases.” This special combination of background colours and the way we apply the ink layer after layer will totally have you thinking that we worked on canvas. In reality, we have simply worked on Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock—the cardstock of my inking and rubber stamping dreams. We are using pigment ink—the most light-fast stamping medium there is—so you will be able to enjoy them for a long, long time. I invite you to use the techniques we are stepping out for you today on your favourite craft project—a card, a scrapbook page, a knock-out art journal page or any crafting project…

Hey crafty peeps… Nicole Wright here and I get to share this fun tutorial on  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Ranger with these delicious embossing powders from Wendy Vecchi.  I have to be honest, keeping the background stark white was really hard.  Especially when there are so many yummy Ranger products to create with.  However, I wanted to make these embossing powders POP with color. This is the perfect project to use up your scraps.  This scrap of Super Stock Cardstock is thick enough for the Emboss it Dabber and Potting Soil embossing powder. I die cut the Handwritten Journey “moments” embossed with the Potting Soil embossing powder.  Using the Magentic Platform helps this thinlit die from shifting.Apply Emboss it Dabber to the chipboard cut and apply each color of embossing powder.  Before you heat the embossing powder run your finger along the…
