Anyone up for a bright summery project today?  Hello friends Nicole Wright here today sharing a detailed tutorial on this Painted Burlap Canvas.  You may have seen this in the current issue of the magazine.  I thought I would share a more detailed tutorial using Dylusions Paints.  These bright acrylic paints add a bold look to any project. Apply Ranger’s Dylusions Paint directly to Super Stock Card Stock using a sponge covering your paper.  I used a baby whip to smear around the Dylusions Paint.  Blot some Tangerine Dream randomly.  Then layer your stencil and using a sponge add Dylusions Paint Fresh Lime.  Repeat this using random colours and stencils for your all your floral die cuts. Yes, you can ink on Burlap with Dylusions Paints.  Add random colours of Dylusions Paints using a sponge.  Layer any stencil you want and use your sponge to ink through your stencil.  Move your…

She’s turning 8. It doesn’t surprise me. She acts 8. And I am excited to see what this year brings. But I just want to freeze time so that I never forget what 7 brought. That’s where mini books help. Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Srapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am celebrating her turning 8. So let’s do this.  I never over think mini books. In order to start, I make some decisions about the cover. That was easy for me – Stampin’ Up!’s Share What You Love Designer Series Paper with the polka dots catches my eye every time I create a fun project. A bit of machine sewing around the edges gives the cover that finished look I am looking for. If you are eyeing the beautiful butterfly and floral die cuts on the cover, these are from a new Stampin’ Up! product called…

Nicole Wright here today celebrating Canada’s 151st birthday!  I love Canada even more since today is also my husband’s birthday.  I always make sure he has a “CANADA DAY” theme card.  This year his card is extra special.  The paper used for the Maple Leaf and side red banners are 116 year old paper from his grandfather’s old book.  It’s ok, I have permission. I will be filming the HOW TO for this card with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine in a few days… while I am on vacation.  For now, check out this inspiration and get ready for this quick video. 1. I cut the Sizzix die cut Layered Leaf with the book page paper to create a Maple Leaf.    The side banners are cut with the same book page.  Each book page is inked with Ranger’s Distress Spray Ink Candied Apple.  To get that intensity I sprayed 2 times, drying…

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 Fall 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  Christy wrote a two-part feature article on using a variety of different types of mediums. The article was appropriately called Mad for Mediums as Christy rarely created a project without adding some kind of ooey gooey goodness! Here is one of the many projects that Christy designed featuring gesso. Gesso Resist Because gesso is a sealant, mediums will react differently on top of it then they will on paper. You can use this to your advantage by using it to create a soft resist. I call it a soft resist because it may retain a bit of…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart back on the blog today to share with you a fun art journal page. Summer has arrived and the inspiration for my project definitely came from all the bright colours that come with summer. The jumping off point for my project was the Small Patterns & Forever & Always collections from Wild Whisper Designs which combined with a variety of mediums and art journal from Ranger Ink, stencils from Stampers Anonymous, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, I was able to create my fun I Have an Entire Forest Art, Journal Page. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my page. For the background of my art journal pages, I put a base coat of White Gesso from Ranger Ink on the pages. With the gesso…

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 a Text Talk article and the layout that Christy designed especially for the feature. In the 2015 Summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, we did an entire featuring on the language of smartphone…or as we called it Text Talk. We featured layouts that included everything from hashtags to abbreviations to smartphone graphics and emojis. This was such a fun theme…looking back it makes me think that we should revisit this page call and see how we are inspired by our smartphones today! Here is the layout that Christy designed for this feature. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel -…
