I am sooooo in the mood for a cocktail somewhere by the sea! LOLOLOL!  So that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. Kerry Engel’s layout is the next best thing! Bright colours, yummy food, and one of my all-time favourite Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp sets. If you don’t have the Cocktails Blueprint stamp set – you need to get it.  Kerry also used a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Layering Stencil to create the design in the background. It makes the layout look like it’s sparkling! LOVE IT! Off I go to dream of a drink by the sea! Giggle Giggle! Have a wonderful week everyone!

Let’s just cut to the chase – 2020 WAS NUTS! Never in a million years did I ever imagine living through a pandemic. It was and still is super surreal. Life-changing. Lesson learning. Thought-provoking. Self-awareness. Are just a few words that come to mind when I reflect on 2020. I can’t stress enough how important it is to document your stories. Your photos. Your words. Your battles. Your victories. Your day to day during life with COVID.  Not sure where to start? The last few issues of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine are a great place to find inspiration to document this moment in time. Here we have galleries of stories, photos, and moments that you shared with us AND you will find even more ideas in the Spring 2021 issue! Here is one of my favourite projects you will find in the Winter 2020 issue designed by Kerry Engel. Her layout…

Hey! Kim here with a quick layout share using the December Sketchy Challenge as my inspiration.   This is a sketch that took me awhile to warm up to. It wasn’t until I started to rotate it and look at photos that I got a feel for how it might work for me. I challenge you to work through a sketch that you don’t love, you may just be surprised with how much you like the end result! My layout uses the most basic of supplies. I almost always have Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock somewhere on my layout! I LOVE the weight, smoothness and the beautiful, bright white of this cardstock.  I used two types of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; White Permanent and Ultra permanent [I always find I need a stronger grip when I adhere anything to the textured side of Bazzil cardstock – used here as the…

Hi! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with a post-Thanksgiving Layout featuring the ThankFULL Theme Pack from Creative Memories! I know I’ve said it before, but I love Theme Packs: they’ve got plenty of supplies to create a few thematic layouts, but not so many that you have leftovers like you would from a full collection. They are available for lots of different themes and occasions, and the price point can’t be beat – just $12.00 (CA) for four sheets of double sided paper, one sheet of coordinating cardstock plus sticker embellishments! ThankFULL was one of the first Theme Packs Creative Memories introduced last fall, but it’s still one of my favorites with its slightly non-traditional colour scheme, cute stickers and great cut-apart sheet! I used photos from last Thanksgiving for this pretty layout, choosing one 6” x 4” and printing two other landscape photos in 4” x 3” size. I…

Hello! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share some ideas, tips and tricks for using simple tools to create a fun, custom layout! We scrapbookers and papercrafters love, love, love our tools and are always excited to try out the latest and greatest, but it can be very satisfying to get back to basics and create with simple tools like stencils or templates, scissors and pens. I had lots of fun using the Apple Recipe Template, Hello, Autumn Journal Template, Micro-Tip Scissors, Navy Dual-Tip Pen,  Alphabet Stamp Kit System and Celebrations Title Stamp along with the lovely Hello, Autumn Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack to create an apple-themed layout! Here’s how to make it: First, trace the outside edge of the apple on the Apple Recipe Template onto the rich Crimson Cardstock and cut it out with the Micro-Tip Scissors. Trace the leaf and stem shape onto the neutral monochromatic and green…

Summer is slowly slipping away but that doesn’t mean we can’t capture those moments and scrap them. Hello fellow creatives, Nicole here bringing you a scrappy layout!  I know… not my usual gig.  However, I have a new paper collection releasing with Wild Whisper called Tinbit Travels and I wanted to scrap with it.  I created these mixed media pages to mimic the outdoors with colours and texture.  Check out this easy layout for my Airstream, Tinbit. Tinbit Travels is about to release.  For this layout I cut every sheet.  Yes, that was surprisingly difficult.  I printed out a 5×7 Tinbit photo and gathered some supplies to get inspired. I cut each piece of the mixed media side of the Tinbit Travels pages 1 ¾”x 11”.  Because each mixed media page is designed with the textures of nature, I wanted to add all that pop of colour.  You can use…

Hi there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here today to share some ideas for back to school layouts AND some FREE cut-files with you! Sadly, summer is rapidly ending and it’s time for the kiddos to get ready to head back to school. Since Covid-19 is still a factor, school might look very different this year – some jurisdictions are opening “regular” school, some are only doing remote learning and many are offering a combination of the two. No matter what your child’s first day back looks like, be sure to document it and tell the story of this very unique year! My own boys will primarily be doing remote learning and will be heading back in early September. For these layouts, I pulled out some photos of my boys and I heading back to school from LAST September to use with the fantastic Book Smarts Theme Pack from Creative Memories.…
