Hey crafty peeps… Nicole here and I get to share this fun tutorial on  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Hey crafty peeps… Nicole here and I get to share this fun tutorial on  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Ranger with all these vibrant Mini Archival Inks and stretch beyond Jet Black. This tutorial is an experiment for me and I love the results the Mini Archival Inks create.  These crisp colors provide a detailed stamped image allowing versatility even when watercoloring.The Mini Archival Inks are just the right size for adding ink in select areas of the rubber stamps.  Allowing me to ink and build each stamped image.  Each ink is easily cleaned off the Archival Cleaner. Dry your stamp with some paper towel then add more color to the leaves and petals cleaning between. The new Tonic Stamp Platform was the perfect tool to…

Creating a stained glass effect using stamps, ink, dies and tissue paper is definitely one of my all time favourite techniques that Christy taught us through out the years. Christy Riopel taught this technique in one of her first shows that we filmed over at Shaw TV in Calgary. After the show I went home and created TONS of stained glass embellishments for my projects. The technique is so easy and fool proof. Here is the project that we featured on our  web show. *Be sure to visit Creative Scrapbooker Magazine on YouTube for hundreds of how to videos. Do you have a bunch of intricate dies that you are afraid to use? This stained glass technique is PERFECT for any intricate die! All you need are some dies, some black cardstock, stamps, ink,  tissue paper and the magic of a gel medium. Basic Instructions 1. Stamp randomly on some…

If I had a choice of where to live in the entire world it would definitely be somewhere near the sea. There is just something about salty air, the song of the waves and the sweet smell of adventure. There is a cruise line somewhere whose tag line advertisement is “The Sea is Calling”…gets me everytime!  LOL!  BoBunny has a collection of scrapbooking supplies called Down By the Sea. I love the colours of this line and all the fun embellishments that have  a fishy, salty theme, especially the mermaids! LOVE IT! Tracy Mclennon has taken the BoBunny Down By The Sea collection and used it to design her take on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine monthly sketch challenge.

Hi everyone.  Karen Ellis here.   Today is my day on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you something that I’ve been working on.This weekend my mind, like so many of us, was on Hurricane Irma and the disaster she left  in her wake in the Caribbean and the state of Florida.  As a survivor of a natural disaster myself (lost my home in a F4 tornado), I know what it is like to lose everything (including friends and neighbours) and what it means to rebuild.  I know you all will join me in wishing the survivors the very best, a fast recovery and a quick rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Irma. While watching the news coverage, I took to my studio and opened to an unfinished page in my art journal and created this layout I’m sharing with you today.  I enjoy going to my journal when…

Hello Friends and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today. My name is Karan Gerber and I am thrilled to be here with you today sharing my first post. School for many started back this past week and with that, I am reminded that fall is right around the corner. What I most love about fall is the cooler temps; harvest season and the bright bold colors of the gorgeous Sunflower. Did you know that Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity? This is one reason it makes them one of my favorite flowers to create with the long list of stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. So let’s get on with the “You are my Sunshine” Card I created for my first post here. I used the papers, stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. The card base measures 7.5 x 5.5 on black cardstock. I cut one piece from…

Christy Riopel instantly fell in love with Izinks from Clearsnap. I remember they day Clearsnap sent them to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team to play with – a few of us were like “What the heck do you do with these?” I for one am a die hard collector of all things scrapbooking pretty so I instantly knew where they were going to be displayed in my craft room but had no idea how to use them. Giggle Giggle. Not Christy. The first few projects she created with the Izinks were gorgeous, after that the projects were beyond beautiful. What are Izinks? First off, they are stored in the cutest little bottles! Izinks are acrylic based pigment ink. The ink is opaque and will not produce a patine effect. They are acid free and are mostly used for srapbooking and hobby crafts. Of course they come in a wide…
