Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a little liquid gold inspired layout to share with you. My layout is inspired by my husband’s love for craft beer. I don’t like beer myself, but what I do enjoy is exploring these fabulous local businesses and the art and design that goes into their craft.As soon as I set eyes on these fabulous stamps from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection….I knew I had to have them for just this reason. Even just as the stamp alone, don’t they look fabulous?I created my layered background and then did a few simple mixed media steps in order to frame the area where my matted photo would be. A little blending and splattering, and let dry. Then I stamped the beer mug and beer bottle onto the layout itself in black ink. This ends up simply as a…

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. Here is a double page layout that Christy designed in the Fall of  2015. This layout was created for a blog challenge Christy was participating in. This layout makes me – Happy/Sad. So very, very happy that she loved working with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. So very, very happy that she created a layout expressing how she felt about her job with us. So very, very happy for this fabulous memory. And with this beautiful memory – a tear finds it way down my cheek. Forever missing you Christy. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Paper House Productions collection – Paradise Found Beach collection. Do you ever see a paper collection and instantly know that you have a picture that was made for that collection? That’s exactly what happened when I saw the Paper House Productions “Paradise Found” collection. I’ve had this photo of my daughter on a boat cruise in Californian for about 4 years – waiting for the perfect inspiration.  I also have to admit that I’m addicted to Paper House Productions large image patterned papers. I love the challenge of building a layout that ties into the image on the paper. My goal with this layout was to keep things soft and calm like my photo, to maintain that “magic hour” glow and to tie in my image with the background paper. Here’s how I went about it.…

Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. We must celebrate! Indeed we do! We have many things to celebrate including the carry over of the Celebrate You Thinlet Dies into the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. Since it’s introduction in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I have made too many projects to count with these thinlet dies. When I heard they would carry over I was over the moon!Today’s projects were created combining the Celebrate You Thinlet Dies as well as the sans serif sentiments of the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. I love mixing and matching different stamps and dies.To create the above card, you must first make the multi-colored background.  With your Aqua Painter, dip each colour into the refill ink one by one resulting in a multi-colored wash. I would recommend drying each colour with a Heat Tool…

Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel.  Christy’s art was and still is timeless. So many of her creations from way back when are still hot and trendy today. Here is a blog post from over 6 years ago that Christy created for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine about recycling and embossing pop cans! AWESOME! Upcycling Pop Cans to Make Embossed “Tin Panels” by Christy Riopel I was inspired by an old tin ceiling panels when I created this page. I love how they go with the vintage feel of the photo. To make the panels I cut the top and bottom off a pop can and down the side. I then took my Spellbinders embossing folder and embossed the metal from the can. I then painted it with gesso and let it dry. I sprayed it…
