As we move closer to Mother’s Day and longer into this pandemic, I am starting to miss the physical connections I have with other humans. Mother’s Day will especially be hard as I traditionally celebrate so many beautiful women in my life in person. What I wouldn’t do right now for some hugs with my own mother, my ‘person’. For now, I will be building that love bigger and bigger until we embrace it again. “If flowers were hugs, I’d send you thousand.” Those words from the Abstract Impressions stamp set by Stampin’ Up! spoke to me. They seemed to be exactly what I wanted to say. And not just to my mother but to so many of my family and friends. Typically, I am not a big hugger but after this pandemic, you can be certain that I’ll turn into a regular “hug-o-monster”. Look out world because I’ll be…

Art  Impressions stamps capture real life for so many women. The confident ladies strutting their stuff in the Girlfriends Make the Best Accessories stamp reminds me of me and my friends when we go for lunch. I wanted to make the ladies a bit glitzy so I used the paper piecing technique on their sunglasses and purses. A little glitter goes a long way! I also tried something different for me, I applied Ranger Tim Holtz Oxide inks onto foiled Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates paper. It turned out really well. The inked and foiled background looks like a Vegas night sky. Here’s how I created this look: 1. Stamp the Art Impressions Girlfriend stamp on watercolor paper and fussy-cut the ladies. 2. Stamp the Ranger Oxide Inks on a non-porous surface and add water, using a paintbrush paint your stamped image 3. Stamp the image a second…

Hello everyone, Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. In this time of isolation, it is challenging to get together with loved ones. Sending a handmade card to your mother or mother figure is the perfect way to show your love and gratitude. Here is a simple watercolor tulip card you can make in minutes. SUPPLIES: watercolor paper, Kelly Creates Aqua Brush pens or similar water-based brush pens, Black Fineliner or sentiment stamp, water, paintbrush or water brush, ribbon, cardstock. Brush the watercolor ink onto your card to form the tulip in 3 parts: centre, left, and right. Add as many tulips as you like. I did three.

Add a second color to the…

Hi Creative Scrapbooker Fans, Pam Bray here today sharing my Enjoy the Journey…Rule the World Mixed Media Tag. Most of us are on some type of lockdown because of the COVID -19 Virus and are looking to areas of help others or doing self-help like creating and expressing yourself through art. I created an easy tag by using products in my stash that you might also have in yours. I also included a few new ones that are easily available or that you might incorporate a product you have in your stash. I began by running a piece of mat board through my Xyron Creative Station Light using permanent adhesive. Apply Barn Door and Wild Honey Distress Ink on craft mat; mist with water and dab 5×8″ white card stock through inks. Dry. Adhere to prepared paper to the top of the adhesive mat board. Die cut the tag from…

Hi everyone! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here. I hope that you are staying home and staying safe during this time. Many of us are passing the time being creative with paper crafting and memory-keeping projects: I’ve been working my way through vacation photos from our trip to sunny Southern California last year which I have waaaay too many of, and I’m happy to be sharing a layout today that features a new product from Creative Memories that has helped me get more photos onto my vacation scrapbook pages! Peekaboo Pockets are photo-safe transparent scrapbook pockets that can be adhered to your scrapbook page or protector with their self-adhesive strip and are the perfect way to add more memories and memorabilia! Although Creative Memories has offered Peekaboo Pockets in the standard 4” x 6” size for a while, I was so excited to see that they are now offering them in 5”…
