Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with Heartfelt Creations. I love growing Calla Lilies and every year I have several blooming in my yard so of course I was instantly drawn to this Heartfelt Creations collection. Once I start making flowers I end up making a bouquet’s worth. They are addictive and so rewarding. The Heartfelt Creations, Calla Lily collection is made up of papers, stamps and dies that coordinate for easy, beautiful floral creativity. I did a little research on the colors of Calla lilies – to help me with my card making. According to the Proflowers website: White symbolizes purity and innocence. Yellow symbolizes gratitude. Pink symbolizes appreciation and romance. Purple symbolizes royalty and admiration. Black symbolizes elegance and mystery. Red symbolizes beauty and courage. ….Good info to know when you’re making cards! Here’s how I created my flowers: Using the…

I just don’t even know what to say. The world took a one-eighty and I am okay one day and not okay the next. Mental wellness is high on the priority list. For me, that means using scrapbooking as a tool to stay positive. Using words to keep some control in a society where I have no control. When I create, I can find happiness. And right now, it’s more important than ever. Today I am sharing the words and the page that I documented to help me move through my feelings. “We made it to April. We are more than two weeks in. It still feels unbelievable. It still feels scary. But we keep trying to focus on the good. There’s so much good. And the sun will come out again.       My anxieties and worries are slowly reducing every day. There are still financial worries but largely…

Hi friends! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here, sharing a layout based on the March 2020 Sketchy Challenge sketch! Each month I look forward to seeing and using Kerry Engelle’s FREE sketch, and this month I’m using the new Spring Medley Collection from Creative Memories to create my layout based on it. It is a beautiful collection with soft blue, aqua and green accented with navy, gray and beige, and I love that there is a Designer Paper Pack with beautiful patterns AND a Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack that are so versatile! The collection also features sweet stickers, beautiful mat cards, fun paper pockets & embellishments, and a beautiful new Spring Leaf Border Maker Cartridge – all of which work together to document so many different occasions and themes!
