Fall is here. I am not sure why but I love to feel the crisp air and see the harvest wreathes on the doors in our neighbourhood. Perhaps it represents some new beginnings or maybe it’s because there can never be too many pumpkins. It’s a time of year that I find refreshing. Like many families, we have a tradition to visit our local pumpkin patch for some photos sitting on haystacks surrounded by orange “balls” as my one year old exclaims this year! Today’s layout was inspired by Traci Reed Design’s (TRD) free digital cut file, Stacked Pumpkins. I’ve recently moved my Silhouette die cutting machine from under my desk to the top. This made it easy to download and have it cut out when inspiration hit. It couldn’t have been a more perfect fit for these photos. Using the digital patterned papers by Traci Reed called Hocus Pocus,…

We’re on to a new type of catalog – the color catalog. I recommend is using my “Peek-a-Hue” color charts. These are a free download – see the links below Why is creating a color catalog using your actual supplies important? There are a couple of reasons – Try as they might, it’s nearly impossible for the manufacturers to create labels on their products that show the “true” color on the ink, pen, marker, etc;. Cataloging the colors will give you that “true” color. Using each of your colors will give you an opportunity to discover what you have and what you need. You’re sure to find dried up products that can be tossed and replacements added to your shopping list. The process of cataloging your inks, pens, and markers is similar to the other products we’ve catalogued. Challenge Goals – Have quick, easy access to your inks, pencils, markers,…

Hello friends Karan Gerber here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Here in Ontario, the colours have taken over the trees and bright oranges, yellows and reds are all over our island. It sure is a beautiful site to see. My card is inspired by these beautiful fall colours and I wanted to show you how I created these gorgeous little flowers.To begin with, we will need to cut out some florals and leaves from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Florals 5. (large, medium small, 2 small as well as some leaves) I cut these out on watercolor paper from Canson. I am using watercolours from Elizabeth Craft Designs as well to colour the flowers. I used the waterbrush that comes with the set to colour using permanent yellow. I also coloured the leaves the Yellow Green shaping them with the Golf tool from Dress My Crafts allows me to…
