Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here sharing a layout featuring Creative Memories new Happy Camper Collection! The colors, patterns, icons and sayings in this rustic but whimsical collection will be great for capturing all your summer campsite memories and other outdoor adventures! When I was going through boxes of old photos from my parent’s home recently, I found some “vintage” photos of me heading off to Girl Guide Camp laden down with a huge backpack. I remember that I was NOT a happy camper at the time as the backpack weighed more than I did, but I do remember that I had a great time at camp! It was fun to use these photos along with the cute Happy Camper Stickers and Embellishments on this layout. Using one of the two woodgrain papers from the Happy Camper Paper Pack as my base, I layered a 4” x 10.5” strip of the striped…

Hey there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com and I’m happy to be here to share my take on Kerry Engel’s fun June Sketch using some of the new Botanical Burst Collection from Creative Memories. This pretty mix-and match collection offers four paper packs and four embellishment packs in Blue, Pinks, Greens and Yellows, so there’s bound to be a match for almost any photos that you’re scrapping! When I saw Kerry’s sketch, I loved the look of the large half circle in the background with photos off to the side.  I used my Jumbo Circle with the Blue Blade from the Custom Cutting System to cut a large circle from the green leaf patterned paper from the Botanical Burst Green Paper Pack. (*You could also use the new Circle Cutter which cuts and draws circles from 3” to 11.75”. This new tool was so hot that it is out of stock…

I am IN LOVE with how Desiree Saskiw designed this layout. It is brilliant! The cut out photo, the stamped eye, the doodling, the flowers in her hair and that stunning background. And the quote is perfect. Every once in awhile a layout stops you in your tracks…this one did it for me. If you are wondering – those funky stamps are from Ranger – their Dylusions collection. Desiree’s layout was one of MANY projects that were featured in the Summer 2021 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine in an INSPIRED by MEXICO gallery. This may be one of my all time favourite sections in the magazine. So bright, so cheerful, so colourful! All my favourite things.  Get your copy of the magazine today! Happy Tuesday Friends!

Hi there! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a layout featuring a favorite saying and sweet photos of my son Grayson when he was just a chubby little guy! I used Creative Memories “Outta This World” Collection which is a kid’s space-themed collection for this layout. The combination of bright and pastel tones will work for layouts featuring all your little astronauts’ adventures! The Stickers and Foiled Embellishments are so whimsical and fun, and when I saw the “I Love You to the Moon and Back” word sticker I knew I wanted to use it on a layout for Grayson’s baby album. I vividly remember reading the sweet little book “Guess How Much I Love You?” to him when he was a baby, and for me (like so many parents!) the phrase “I love you to the moon and back” was an everyday expression of the boundless love I felt…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Jayme here with some scrapbook pages I just couldn’t wait to create once I saw the ‘Simple Vintage Coastal’ line from Simple Stories. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them! I love the soft colours and the shabby feel to the patterns- perfect for my kinda messy style! I chose these papers because of the variety of colours and patterns that suit both tropical beach experiences and holidays like mine- on the Emerald Isle. It was not a hot destination, but we spent a lot of time traveling along the Irish coastline. The blues, greens and neutrals worked perfectly for my oceanside photos. First up, I’ll share a page of a less than flattering photo of myself. I’ll own it. Our stop at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge heritage site was not one that I chose. But democracy won and I was outvoted. Over…

Feature Friday is here! Every Friday, I will highlight one project that was published in a past, or in the current issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine! HOORAY! Just another fabulous way to showcase so many amazing projects that our followers have shared with us throughout the past 15 years! DRUM ROLL PLEASE There are so many things I love about this layout designed by Cathryn Ledger from Edmonton, Alberta. The cute little birdie cut file looks awesome with all the different pieces of patterned paper showing through. They have a quilted baby bird feel that I love! The soft background with the doilies and the addition of twine flowers with brad centers all work wonderfully together. Here are the supplies used to create this layout: Bazzill Basics Paper Cardstock Bo Bunny Doilies Illustrated Faith Patterned Paper, Stickers, and Alphabet Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Paige Evans Cut Files Silhouette…

Hi friends! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com to share a fun scrapbook layout featuring the new Staycation Collection and Dine Border Punch from Creative Memories! Staycation is a collection that celebrates staying close to home and enjoying all that our local area has to offer and it’s perfect for all the photos of family nights, baking sessions, backyard parties, and virtual celebrations that we have all experienced over the past year! And the Dine Border Punch is so much fun to documents family dinners, BBQs, take-out meals, or anything else having to do with FOOD! To create this layout, punch two borders with the Dine Border Punch from the kraft-colored patterned paper in the Staycation Paper Pack. Mount them onto two strips of green arrow paper with Repositionable Adhesive. TIP: Repositionable Adhesive is awesome for adhering detailed borders as the tiny dots of adhesive only stick to the paper! Cut…

Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a single-page scrapbook layout featuring a brand-new collection by Creative Memories – Emerald Gemstone! This stunning collection is inspired by the wonders of nature and features patterns such as starry night skies, aurora borealis, bold leaves, peacock “eyespots,” mineral deposits, water droplets, crystals, and watercolour washes in a radiant palette of navy and royal blue, teal, white, emerald green and touches of yellow-green. There is a Patterned Paper Pack, a Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack, Stickers, Variety Mat Cards, and Laser-Cut Borders in the collection, as well as a gorgeous Album and Fast2Fab Pages, and I knew it would be perfect to use with some photos of a beautiful river valley and waterfalls from Kananaskis Provincial Park here in Alberta. I also wanted to use the new Gemstone Border Maker Cartridge as its unique shape works well to highlight and repeat the jagged shapes…

Okay, maybe they are not HOT! But this layout designed by Kerry Engel certainly is! Do you see that clock on her layout – it is from Southern Ridge Trading Company. Kerry used the Simple Stories Vintage Great Escape collection to put this layout together. She fussy cut all those butterflies out from the patterned paper! WOWZERS! Kerry then glued everything together using Glue Dots Adhesives. This layout has me feeling like it is Tea Latte time!!!! 🙂 Kerry’s layout was published in the Winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Inside this issue, there is an entire section dedicated to CLOCKS!!!!  CLICK HERE to get your copy today! Happy Friday everyone!
