Hello Creative Scrapbookers, Kim here! It’s August already! Why do summers fly by so fast? I am off this week and looked forward to a little less routine and some daytime creativity! I have a few birthdays coming up, so I thought  I’d make a few cards! Today’s card adventure ended up being this whimsical llama twister! Here are a few photo shares of my process! Thanks for taking the time to check out my card, I’m off to make a few more!

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with another puppy layout…I guarantee more will follow as my new puppy Kona is my current photography muse! I wanted to do some doodling for this layout, it’s a fun layer to the kraft paper I used as my base page! I pounced some gesso through the Dylusions daisy stencil using a makeup sponge. Once the gesso was dry I doodled away using my Zebra CLiCKART pens. Doodling is a fun way to turn off your brain while being creative! I took a page out of my Dylusions journal to use under my photos and as a fun way to document some text: EAT, SLEEP, PLAY! The Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive was perfect for adhering the sequin flowers and my Olfa Knife and Ruler get pulled out throughout the scrapbooking process, I LOVE straight lines and sharp cuts!My PUPPY title was easily made by adding Deco…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick share of a recent layout inspired by the June 2022 Sketchy Challenge designed by Kerry Engel.This was a super quick layout to pull together, which was awesome when life is busy. Allowed me some creative head space as well as a sense of accomplishment when I add it to my album! I used a combination of Simply Stated Design papers and die cut embellishments and a few bits and pieces from my Ali Edwards stash. I just LOVE how easy it was to make these little embellishment clusters, there are so many lovely pieces to play with! My permanent tape runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L was my adhesive of choice to keep all my parts together! I look forward to working with our second June Sketchy Challenge, stay tuned! Hopefully you are enjoying the beautiful issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, if…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick summery card! This card was too cute not to bring into the blog to share! I grabbed some things from my Therm O Web and Ranger stash and paired them for a fun outcome! I inked up a chipboard wreath from Southern Ridge Trading Company and adhered it to my card blank using Media Ultra Thick Gel Medium. I’ve been enjoying the ease of Tonic Studios Craft Perfect pre-cut & scored cards, they come in a variety of sizes, mine was 6×6. Now for the fun! I inked up my Therm O Web Rina K. Designs stamps using Ranger Archival inks in a variety of colours and layered them on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock, this is a perfect weight card stock for cutting dies. After die cutting my images, I adhered them to the wreath with the Media Ultra Thick Gel…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! It has been a LONG time since we shared a WHERE YOU CREATE blog post! The pandemic took all of my routines and put them into tail spin, allowing very little motivation at the end of my days for many things on my [happy] to-do list! But here we are, back on the blog with a creative space to share! I call that a WIN!!! Back in 2015, we had the pleasure of sharing Ardel Doll’s creative space. In that blog post she talked about a future art room being in the works, guess what? It’s here and we are excited to share the details! Here’s what Ardel has to say! My previous craft space was shared on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Where You Create.   I noted that we hoped to build a room downstairs as I was outgrowing my space.  Never give up on a dream!…

Size does matter, sometimes! There are times I want to create smaller than a 12×12. Not because it’s easier, because it works different creative muscles. I pulled out my planner from Elizabeth Craft Designs and used the July 2021 Sketchy Challenge as a starting point.When I work in the planner, I am always aware of what will ‘split’ down the center. Sometimes I will let photos or ephemera flow across the center if it doesn’t cut in an awkward place, i.e. splitting a person in half would not be good! Trust your brain…it will know right from wrong! Thanks for checking into my post! If you haven’t joined our Sketchy Challenge on Facebook, we welcome you! ~Kim

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick layout share inspired by the September Sketchy Challenge! When I use a sketch, my first goal is to make it my own! I rarely follow it exactly. When you see my layout, you may think it looks nothing like the sketch, but let me show you how I was inspired! I also challenged myself to use LOTS of product on this layout. I usually don’t use a lot of stickers, labels and die cuts on my layouts, but it’s good to step out of your comfort zone to work your creative brain! Let me show you my process… Thanks for stopping by the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to check out my layout. I hope it makes you look at sketches a bit differently I see sketches as a stepping stone to creative fun! Have a wonderful day! Do you have the latest…

Hello CSM scrapbookers! Kim here! It feels like it’s been so long since I last shared a project…likely because it’s so darn HOT in Alberta, which means my craft room is crazy hot! I melt in heat, making it hard to spend time there lately! Despite the heat, some Picket Fence Studio dies found their way to my room and called me to play. Both sets are designed for slimline cards, but as I played with them, so many ideas have come to mind for future scrapbooking use! My card is simple and FUN. My background was created with a cheap set of watercolour paints and Ranger water color paper. I literally just painted wide random stripes onto watercolour paper and let it dry. Using the two largest rectangle dies I cut my striped paper and a dark grey/black cardstock to create my background. Using an ephemera pack from the…

Kim here today! Welcome to another Tuesday With The Team! I’m excited to share my project and technique, it’s a process that I find to be really satisfying and the results keep making me happy! I LOVE making mono prints using my Ranger Gel Plates and all sorts of acrylic paints. I can get lost in creative play for hours during this process and life stress just melts away. When I make my prints, I most often use plain computer paper, the finished page is thin, which I like! I take my favourites and scan them into my computer, this allows me to use them in so many ways. I will often print four to a page on a nice sturdy card stock, they are perfect for card bases! I store them all in a ziplock bag and pull them out often for card making and mixed media projects. For…
