Kim here with a fun project share using the Stampers Anonymous Merry Misfits stamps! Oh, how I LOVE these little guys! They are PERFECT for Christmas tags! The Misfits just make me smile and take a little stress out of the chaos of Christmas! Along with the Misfit stamps, I also used Ranger’s Simon Hurley Classic Flannel stamp, Distress Oxide Inks and a Shifter stencil! These products ALL play so well together! Have fun adding tags to your Christmas gifts this season! Maybe you could wrap up a Creative Scrapbooker Magazine subscription! Now THAT would be a sweet gift to receive!

Hey, Kim here with a quick layout share! I created this simple layout last week using Simple Stories’ Hey Crafty Girl Collection. It’s a family photo taken from this past summer! The Hey Crafty Girl collection is a great mix of fun patterns and colours. From 12×12 papers, journal blocks, stickers, ephemera and chipboard pieces – this kit will provide hours of creative fun! Some additional supplies used on my layout include: Chameleon Fineliner pens for my journaling. A couple of adhesives from Glue Dots. Ranger Distress Oxide Ink was used to colour my wooden tag (that came off of some unknown product that we bought at some point).Studio Calico plastic heart & May Arts twine. Have you picked up the WINTER issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine? It will keep you inspired until the SPRING issue arrives!

Happy Tuesday! It’s me, Kim [instagram], back on the blog today with a scrapbooking layout inspired by Stampers Anonymous Pressed Foliage stamp set and our September Sketchy Challenge. Autumn is hands down my favourite time of the year. I love the colours, the crisp air and the cozy clothes that are all part of the season. However, as I sit here typing up my blog post, my world has been blanketed in frozen, white crystals of snow..NOT my favourite season! *sigh* At least I have documented the loveliness of autumn and can enjoy the memories through my photos. This season will bless my world again in 2020! My layout started as a simple white piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. This smooth, bright white, 130lb weight card stock is the PERFECT foundation for cards and layouts. Your inks will fall in love with this product! I randomly stamped different leaf…

Welcome autumn! The long days of summer are behind us, the temperatures are cooling, the colours are changing and the scent of pumpkin spice can be smelled from coffee cups  all around! These are all wonderful parts of the season, but for many it also means more time in our craft rooms or creative corners. It’s the perfect time to share a few WHERE YOU CREATE posts before the busy of the holidays is upon us! I was thrilled to see an email from Dorymar Perez find its way to my inbox. She designs for some of our favourite companies and has a lovely space to share. Let’s take a peek! “My name is Dorymar Perez, currently I design for two scrapbook companies; Simple Stories & Echo Park-Carta Bella and also for My creative Scrapbook Kit Club. In this room I spend many hours having fun and creating. I love…

Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp. I stamped it to the left side of a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. My sentiment was stamped separately and cut with a circle punch. I colored the image with my NEW Chameleon Fineliner Pens, I adore them! Like their big sisters, the Chameleon Pens, the Fineliners can provide tonal, colour transitions like magic! Think how beautiful your journals and planners can be! Here, however I have coloured my image using dots and lines – it is such a FUN way to colour smaller images! I’ve added a narrow strip of patterned paper to…

Good Morning Creative Scrapbookers! It’s a gorgeous day in Alberta, after some not so nice ones! I thought it would be nice to celebrate this beautiful morning with a creative space share from here, in our own stomping grounds! Today’s ‘Where You Create’ is from Paula Doran, in the lovely community of Sherwood Park. I’m a bit biased because Sherwood Park is my home as well! Paula is sharing a few photos of her beautiful space that has evolved after several years of water damage in her basement! She writes: “I have attached ‘Where I Create’ photos, although this is only about 1/4 of my crafting supplies! [LOL] The rest are in a storage room. I LOVE my space because, from 2010 – 2017 I did not have an area that was inspiring. We had water in our basement. Until we could repair and re-do our basement, I had a…

Hello everyone, Kim here today with a mixed media blog share! In the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, Connie Nichol, our frugal scrapbooker, has an article all about using vintage sewing patterns. This featured article shows lots of fun ways to incorporate patterns onto cards and layouts. I thought I would share how I used them in a project! I have done up a 2-page mixed media layout in my Prima Travelers Mixed Media Notebook. This fun  little notebook has various types of paper to work on; black & cream mixed media, kraft, cardstock and a heavy vellum. I have adhered some of the tissue paper pattern on the left side of my project and the packaging on the right side using Prima Soft Matte Gel. I choose to paint a thin layer of watered down Mint Impasto over the entire project to tone the red down and ‘push’…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! We have a treat for you today! The first Where You Create blog post in a long time! We had a busy end to 2018 and start to 2019! Not only are the winter months busy blog months with so many holidays, Creativation and give-aways but for many they are not months that allow for great indoor photos as it can be so dark! Our submissions of your creative spaces drop off in those months. We are back with a few ready to share and sure hope you take advantage of these brighter months to snap a few photos and send them to us! Today, let’s take a peek into Tammy Hawes lovely space, this bright room is well organized and would be the perfect place to create for hours at a time! Here’s what Tammy shared about her space: “I have been a scrapbooker for 20…

Hello! Kim here again with a simple Silly Goose Pocket Page layout to share. I have been tearing apart my scrapbooking space to make way for renovations [yet again!]. It’s scary what lurks in corners and drawers that you forget you ever had. I had a ton of stuff tucked into my little room that has now found temporary homes all over my house! I have purged some things and fell back in love with older product, it has been a process. During this process I found some old American Crafts 6×12 page protectors that were divided into 3-4×6 pockets. I figured I give a pocket page a try, something I haven’t really adopted for my style of projects. I have to admit, it was really fun and stress free!I used a sheet of paper from Heartfelt Creations’ Young at Heart collection and cut 3-4×6 pieces. I layered my photos…
