Hello and happy Tuesday! It is Jayme Loge here hoping all you Creative Scrapbookers are having a lovely morning with some signs of spring. Where I live, we’ve been buried under an endless ‘polar vortex’. While it has meant a lot of time indoors for scrapbooking I am totally craving some outdoor life! It was a good opportunity to tackle some of the photographs in my ‘to be scrapbooked’ folder. My usual process is to start with a photograph and find paper and embellishments to suit, but I had the lovely Wild Whisper Designs “Farmhouse”  paper pack that was just calling. I ended up choosing two pictures of my daughter, Avery, taken about 11 years apart! And both featured the great outdoors, so I could at least revel in the memory of it… I first scrapbooked the more recent picture. I like to wait until the school year is over…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring stamps, dies and patterned paper from the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection.  I adore the coneflowers and other blooms that are its focus.  In addition to patterned paper, there are three stamp sets with matching dies that are part of the collection.  I’ve used the set called ‘Blossoming Coneflower’.  I stamped the images with Ranger archival black ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.    These pens were absolutely perfect for this project – I could achieve gradation of colour in the petals and leaves with a single pen.  Supplies Used:  Heartfelt Creations patterned paper, stamps and dies, MultiCraft flakes, glue, letter stickers and wooden butterfly, Chameleon Color Tone pens, Ranger ink, Glue Dots Adhesives, corrugated cardboard, doily. I used the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection and Blossoming Coneflower stamp with coordinating die. I stamped the Heartfelt Creations stamp using Ranger…

Hey there! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share some ideas for using two fabulous new Paper Packs from Creative Memories – Rustic Manor and Sky & Water. These collections include gorgeous photographic background papers that can be a bit intimidating to use. These amazing collections feature beautifully photographic background papers that include images of water, sky, beaches, clouds, the Northern Lights, trees, foliage, moss, marble, and wood grains. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a little apprehensive about using these types of papers…I mean, the background images are so lovely, why would you cover them up? On top of that usually, there are no specific embellishments that coordinate with the papers. It always seemed kind of daunting, so I’ve steered clear of these papers in the past. But when I saw these new papers, I knew I had to challenge myself to use them, and I love…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a number of products manufactured by MultiCraft and adhered together with various adhesives from Glue Dots.  MultiCraft is based in Ottawa and strives to provide great quality craft items at reasonable prices.  Some of the brand names under the MultiCraft umbrella are Forever in Time, Craft Medley and Color Factory.  I find many of their products at my local dollar store so they are an excellent choice for frugal paper crafters. I started with some Forever in TIme Vintage Rose patterned cardstock.  I moistened the top and bottom edges with a paintbrush and some water and rolled and ripped them to create a border.  Here’s what the flip side of some of those patterned paper looks like.  Many of them are glittered and are very pretty. decided that a guitar-themed layout needed a guitar-shaped embellishment so I printed out an electric…

HI Friends, welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Blog today!  Its Karan Gerber here to host the blog for you today and I have a simple winter, scrapbook layout to share with you using papers from the Kaisercraft Wonderland Paper Collection.   I know sometimes we want to fit as many photos as we can on a layout, but often times we are able to capture a special moment and that photo deserves a full page.  This photo is of my friend’s grandson Boston, I am so grateful she let me scrapbook him. To start off, I used the Wonderland snowfall for my background, cutting out a one-inch frame all the way around and I matted an 11 .75 x 11.75 dark blue cardstock on top. Realizing this color would be too dark for my layout I decided to add another cardstock mat on top of that measuring 11×11. My cut out from the background…

Hi friends! Noreen Smith from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here on the CSM blog today sharing some tips on using a fantastic tool from Creative Memories – the Collage Wreath Recipe Template! This is the latest in a series of wonderful templates that can really take your layouts to the next level!  The mylar template can be used over and over again to create a wide variety of scrapbook pages by rotating the stencil and/or flipping it to the other side, and you can customize each layout by choosing which the of traceable elements you want to feature in your layout. Simply place the template on top of patterned paper or cardstock, trace the shapes you want with a pencil, cut them out and arrange them on your album page or cardstock. I created a few different variations to show you just how versatile this tool is! In this first layout, I wanted…

LOL! Yes, I do!!!!! Pure happiness! Check out Tracy McLennon’s layout featuring Simple Stories. Not only do I love a well-stocked craft room, but I also LOVE it when fellow scrapbookers take the time to document the room that they spend so much time in. At first glance, you may think it silly, but it is a very large part of what we do and who we are. Where we spend hours telling our stories, documenting our history, learning, creating and simply being who we are. Take a moment in 2019 and scrapbook your space. Tell the story of how it began, your favourite moments, and your scrapbooking journey. It is a part of you and therefore it is PERFECT! Your family will love it! Tracy put together her layout using the Simple Stories Crafty Girl collection. To see more of Tracy’s work visit her blog – Scrappy Chick Designs…

Hello Friends, its Karan Gerber with you today to share a holiday layout using some products from a couple of my favorite manufactures.  I am sure many of you have taken a ton of photos over the holidays and perhaps are looking for some inspiration to get those photos into your albums, here is a layout designed using the fabulous Winters Edge Collection  from 49 and Market  I also combined some of their blooms and chipboard is from 2 Crafty Chipboard I started with a 12 x 12 sheet and cut down a second sheet to 11.5 x 11.5 and distressed the edges.  I actually distressed the edges on all my paper layers of this layout to add some texture. The photo mats measure as follows: dark mat measures -7.5 x 7.5; the grey gingham is 5.75 x 6.75; the red striped paper on the background is 2 strips 3×12 inches…

I love a good collection and Simple Stories never disappoints. Their new “Merry & Bright” Collection has an abundance of yummy pieces: chipboard, stickers, frames, tags, wash tape and paper. Everything coordinates making layering and and creating embellishment clusters a dream. This layout is actually a large “Z”. If you squint you can see it. I was inspired by an advertisement I saw in a magazine. The page is comprised of three embellishment clusters built on three cardstock circles to create a colorful photo stack. I used an assortment of the “Bits & Pieces”, Chipboard Stickers, card-stock stickers and washi tape to create three photo-stacks.  Along the bottom, I decorated a card-stock border sticker with little words. Then I mounted the vintage car on a couple of Pop-Up Dots™ by Glue Dots to give it some height. Layering these elements creates interest, depth and a bit of whimsy.  It looks like my…
