Welcome to the  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.  Its Karan Gerber and I thought I would share a Christmas Card with you using some products from Heartfelt Creations My card is designed using the O Holy Night collection which was released last month. The mini poinsettias and leaves along with that delicate holly branch are from last year, but still one of my favorites go-to’s when doing Christmas Cards. So let’s get started. First, we will need to cut our papers, the card base is a 6×12 folded in half; the dark green is 5.75 x 5.75.  I like the border the white automatically creates, if you prefer to have the green go to the full 6×6, that would look lovely too. The red is 5.25 x 5.25 and the wood looking paper is cut from the reverse of the center of this one and measures 5×5. Using the Ornament Die set from Heartfelt;…

Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel. Christy’s designs are timeless. So many of her creations from way back when continue to inspire us today. This week we are looking back to the Winter 2014 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, in Christy’s regular Tool Junkie Article, Christy turned a variety of different products into stamps. In this layout, My Butterfly Girl, she turned a die cut created from a Sizzix die into a stamp. Check it out. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone! In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art Scholarship. To date – one scholarship has been given through The Boys & Girls Club of Calgary. This warms my heart knowing that Christy continues to spread gentle, caring and inspiring love through…

Happy Friday everyone! Jayme Loge here once again on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine playing with some fun products from Kaisercraft. I have lived in Alberta all of my life. In fact, my people have lived in Alberta for generations. I love traveling all over Canada and the rest of the world, but there is something about the sky here in Alberta that is home to me. I married a man from BC, and so we take frequent trips through the mountains to visit his family. I LOVE the mountains, and my eyes are delighted continually throughout our whole visit, every single time. But I noticed early on that a feeling of peace and contentedness settles over me every time we return home. There is just something about that sky! I take endless pictures of the sky. In storms. At sunrise or sunset. In every season. In the city or across a…

Hello everyone, Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Delish collection by Paper House Productions. I work in a school, and so I have fantastic summer holidays. I always make huge lists, and formulate big plans and then, as it happens when there is an abundance of time, the days disappear with the daylight hours. I have long since learned that scrapbooking is one of the casualties of diminishing time and large lists.  I mull ideas for pages when I’m weeding in my garden. I plan out photos and supplies I want to use while driving out to the lake. I spend an hour or two in air-conditioned scrapbook stores, adding to my stash. But when it comes down to sitting at my scrapbook table and actually scrapbooking, I can’t get there. I guess I am loathe to sacrifice any hours of sunshine to my…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The ‘Seas The Day’ Tri-fold Stamp by Art Impressions is meant to be used in an interactive card. I thought I’d challenge myself to see if I could use it another way.I ended up creating an adorable tag that I plan on using as an embellishment on a scrapbook page, but it could easily be hung on a gift or bottle of wine.My salty embellishment has a lot of depth and dimension and comes together very smoothly as the stamps and dies snuggle together nicely on a tag. To create the tag… Step 1. You’ll need 3 tags, Art C has some great vintage tags. On the first tag stamp the palm trees centering them towards the bottom. ColorBox ink by Clearsnap has yummy colors that look fabulous on the vintage tags. Stamping in brown coordinates nicely with…
