Hey, Creative Scrapbooker fans Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am here to share with you a fun summer themed scrapbook layout featuring the Creative Memories Maritime Collection. The jumping off point for my layout was using the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine August Sketch. With the sketch in hand I set off to create my Galiano Scrapbook Layout which features the Maritime Collection from Creative Memories, Blackboard Alphabet Die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Ink from Ranger Ink and adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite summer beverage as I share with you how to recreate my layout at home. To start, you’ll need both pieces of the wood paper out of the Maritime Collection Designer Paper Pack from Creative Memories. One piece will stay as a full 12×12 piece. The other piece needs to be cut down…

Hello everyone Noreen Smith here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Although the summer is winding down, we are still enjoying the great weather and all the beautiful produce that is ripe and ready to eat! I’m not the best gardener but my strawberry plants have been so fruitful (pun intended!) this year, and we have been eating bowlful after delicious bowlful of them! The Creative Memories Locally Grown Collection that was released last month by Creative Memories is perfect for documenting this year’s bountiful harvest – just in case next year’s crop isn’t so great! The Creative Memories  Locally Grown Paper Pack and Stickers are full of bright colors and patterns that will work beautifully with photos of backyard gardens, trips to the farmers market, BBQ’s and picnics and lots of other summer celebrations. I used several of the papers to create this single page layout showcasing a few photos of…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick scrapbook layout featuring Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils.   Stampers Anonymous makes some amazing rubber stamps, including the exclusive Tim Holtz collection.   I recently returned from a vacation in Germany, and the Tim Holtz beer and pretzel blueprint stamps were absolutely perfect to accent one of many photographs I took while traveling.  In Germany, beer is often cheaper than soft drinks or coffee. This is the Stampers Anonymous stamp set I used.    The set measures 7 x 8.5 and there are four separate cling stamps.  I stamped the mug of beer and the pretzel onto watercolor paper and coloured with a Tombow marker, using a wet paintbrush to spread the colour. Stampers Anonymous also has a set of 9 acrylic blocks that are perfect for mounting cling, foam or acrylic stamps.  I really like the light weight of these and the large…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am playing with a gorgeous collection of patterned paper from Paper House Productions called Lake Life. I’m a sucker for anything with an Adirondack chair on it. Paper House Productions “Lake Life” collection has some stunning large image papers and every time I pull out this paper it pulls me back to the lake. The collection is bursting with lake inspired double-sided papers and corresponding stickers. I’m always drawn to Paper House Productions large image paper, they have such warm and inviting images on their papers. I think this is my third blog post showing how to incorporate this style of paper into your scrapbooking. The look I created with this layout reminds me of the paper tole that was so popular in the 80s. I want to be clear that I did not get to that much work.…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring  Brea Reese watercolor inks and FREE Dingbats! These watercolor inks are intense little bottles of color, and so much fun to use to create page backgrounds and color embellishments.  I had a pile of photographs from a trip to Portugal this past April and grabbed a couple of them to scrapbook.   Yes, I am old school and print out most of the pictures that I take, so I always have lots of 4×6 photographs on my desk. I created the middle part of the page by simply wetting a square of watercolor paper with water, and then brushing with a few drops of yellow and blue Brea Reese watercolor inks.   The colors spread across the wet watercolor paper to give a beautiful effect. For the fruit embellishments, I printed out fruit dingbats from a free font called KR Fruitsy onto…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you my Summer themed project. Although we have just officially started the start of Spring, I’m definitely ready for Summer to arrive. The jumping off point for my project was the Wild Whimsy collection from Wild Whisper Designs which combined with some wood elements from Southern Ridge Trading Company, adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and ink from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this beautiful Ocean View Scrapbook Layout. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my scrapbook layout. When creating my layout, I love to mix the different patterned papers together from the paper pack. By layering the photo onto a variety of cut patterned paper as well as 3×4 and 4×6 cards from the Wild Whimsy collection by…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a romantic layout just in time for Valentine’s Day.  I was cleaning up my craft room when I came across this photograph of my parents from about 28 years ago – they look so young and so happy. This layout came together very quickly.   I had a few pieces of patterned paper on my desk from a South African company called Penelope Dee.    I saw their products for the first time at Creativation last month in Phoenix and the designs are simply gorgeous.  This patterned paper was  SO perfect for this photo  and then I saw a scrapbook sketch designed by Laura Whitaker on Facebook.   Isn’t this a great sketch?  It certainly speeds up the scrapbooking process when somebody has done most of the design work for you! For the page title and for extra embellishments, I used two different sets of  the Way…
