Today on our blog we welcome Marjolaine Walker who has some beautiful Bible journaling pages to show you! Hello creative friends, I’m so pleased to be here today sharing my journey into bible journaling! I first took notice of people colouring in their bibles a little over a year ago. I loved the idea at the time but was not ready to commit to it just yet. I have a habit of jumping into new things and then abandoning them which ends up being a waste of money and time. To be sure that I would be committed to this new adventure, I started doodling in a bible that I already owned, slowly getting braver as I experimented on each page. After a long while I purchased a wide margin bible and dove right in. There’s a certain style of bible journaling that I absolutely love. It’s where…

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today with a card I made for a special friend who is going through a difficult time battling breast cancer. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I would share this card with Canadian Scrapbooker readers. I pulled out my Close To My Heart watercolour supplies and pink cardstock and got busy! Did you know CTMH has all these wonderful products for you to indulge your inner artist? First I used a couple of the pink watercolours to paint the 3 heart balloons. After this dried, I outlined the balloons with a black permanent fine-tipped marker and also drew balloon string words. I wanted to add more pink colour to the plain white background so I brushed some wet watercolour pinks onto a piece of plastic and then pressed the card face down into it to pick up the paints. I like…

Creating Watercolour Effects with Spectrum Aqua markers distributing by Canuck Crafts by Christy Riopel I love this quick layout that I put together. I used Spectrum Aqua Markers and Watercolour Cardstock, Clearsnap SurfaceZ Ink, Magenta stamps and Stencils. Using the Magenta stencil draw lines inside the openings of the stencil. Spray with water and lift off the stencil. This works so well because the Spectrum Aquas are a waterbased marker. I also used the markers on the edges of my photo matte I added these beautiful Magenta flower stamps using a permanent ink like Clearsnap SurfaceZ ink so that I can spray water over the top after I have coloured them in. It’s amazing how a little water can turn these markers into works of art. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
Sometimes it takes perspective to really make you think about your world in a different way. In May of this year, I was given news of a close friend’s health diagnosis. A diagnosis that nobody wants to hear. She then set out on a courageous journey. She was to fight as hard as she possibly could, despite the fact that it seemed impossible. And also, she was to spread as much joy and kindness to all the land near and far. She built a bucket list and crossed them off her list. But this bucket list wasn’t “go to France” or items like that. It was items such as “knit 30 newborn hats for the hospital”. She did random acts of kindness, she hugged everyone she met and she gave thanks. Let me repeat. She gave thanks. She continues to breathe those words and write those letters. She is battling…
