Hi there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a fun layout featuring the Fresh Fusion Cheerful Paper Pack and the brand new Alphabet Stamp Kit System from Creative Memories! I was so excited to hear that CM was launching the alphabet stamps as an alternative to ABC/123 Stickers! As much as I love the stickers, it never fails that I am missing a certain letter or number sticker just when I need it to complete a title! With the Alphabet Stamp Kit System, I’ll always have the letters I need…LOVE THAT! And, since I enjoy making cards as well, the letter stamps will come in so handy when I want to create the same sentiment on multiple cards! The Alphabet Stamp Kit System comes with everything you need to create titles and sentiments all packed in a cute little box. There are three sheets of stamps with upper and…

Jayme Loge here, with some Tuesday with the Team inspiration! Summer holiday time has arrived, but going anywhere significant does not look likely this year for my family. We may take a few day trips within our province, but that is the extent of what we feel like we can plan. Lucky for me, I was on a trip of a lifetime last summer and have many great memories that need scrapbooking. If this is as close as I get to some travel, then I acknowledge that this is not too shabby an option! I picked up a bunch of items from Echo Park Paper Co.’s Scenic Route line. They were perfect for scrapbooking photos from my trip to the UK last summer. These layouts cover less than 24 hours of our almost 3 week trip; I think I will need to pick up some more. It’s been a delight…

Hey everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I had so much fun putting this project together for you this month. I was completely inspired by the new Stampin’ Up! Game On stamp set. My family are ‘gamers’ so I knew that this stamp set was going to be a huge hit in my world. While none of us play chest anymore, I couldn’t help but create with the chest pieces first. It was very evident to me that the background of this card should resemble a game board. The Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelits has a one-inch square that brings this idea to life. We do play Yahtzee and Monopoly, and well, many games with dice. It could work for any age group. I often struggle with using black in my cards are a dominant colour but the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder made…
