It’s the Friday before Halloween! Are your ghouls and goblins ready? Isn’t it wonderful when Halloween falls on the weekend? Less stress and so much more fun for everyone! This week we are taking WHERE YOU CREATE to the Netherlands! I love when our international friends share with us! Let’s all THANK Margo for letting us into her creative space! “Dank u voor ons te laten in uw creatieve ruimte”! Through the magic of an online translator…I hope we got that right…I think Margo’s English is much better than my Dutch! Hi I am Margo Feijen; I live in the small village of Nederweert in the Netherlands. Five years ago I started making cards and scrapbooks. Now; five years later I have my own scraproom. The room…I painted in pink and black with a wooden floor. I now have everything clear and I get so much joy from scrapbooking. Pease see my blog  …

Hello! It’s Kim here on the blog today! Just wanted to share a Halloween themed layout with you using some of my “new” favourite products! I was recently introduced to Magenta’s Nuance powders and I think I just may be developing a crush on them! I used them on this layout to create the background. I first applied a thin layer of Gesso to my Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock. This “primes” the page making it less porous, which in turn allows for longer working time with some products! I spritzed the paper with water in the areas I want to apply colour, then tap some Nuance powders on the area and spritz with more water. Sometimes I would jiggle the page to move the colour, sometimes move it with a heat gun and sometimes dap it with paper towel to soften the colour. In other words…JUST PLAY! I layered the FabScraps’…

Here we are…October 16th! Did everyone survive the Thanksgiving long weekend? Hopefully the weekend was spent with family and friends; sharing laughs and good food! I think I have enough turkey in my system now to hold me until Christmas, which sadly will be here before we know it! Today, Roxanne Morley Anderson is sharing pictures of her wonderful storage units…she definitely has a place for everything! Hi Kim! Here are a few detail shots of my craft studio. My Pax cupboard from IKEA holds a ton of my supplies. My wood stamps are displayed in a rotating cupboard that I “snagged” from an upscale shop that closed down. I added all the shelves. It’s wonderful to be able to see all your stamps and markers! I keep all my sprays in an altered kid’s shelf. It was blue, red and yellow before I covered it with Graphic 45 steampunk…

Here we are…October! The seasons have most definitely changed. Though it saddens me that winter follows so quickly, I adore this time of year…the colours, the crispness of the air, cozy sweaters and scarves; not to mention Thanksgiving and Halloween! Embrace this awesome month and spend some time creating! This week we are in Candace Bernier’s craft room. A gorgeous space in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan! I love your magazine; every time I see it in the drugstore I grab a copy!  I hosted a wedding shower a while back and cleaned my scrapbook room from top to bottom; invariably a guest would want to see it. We built our house several years ago. I was lucky enough to be able to customize a room to suit my scrapbooking and painting needs.  My favourite part is the two big windows; which let in so much natural light. The wall unit was custom built,…
