Hello! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here today with my take on the June Sketchy Gallery sketch using two new tools from Creative Memories along with the brand new Vitamin Sea Collection. I love the tropical vibe of this collection and how it worked with my photos from a trip to Jamaica. I was excited to see that Kerry Engel’s June sketch called for four photos divided by three lines. Rotating a sketch is one of my tried and true methods of making a sketch work for me, and I thought that by rotating the sketch 90 degrees counterclockwise, I could use borders punched with Creative Memories new Seashells Border Punch and the Kissing Fish Chain Border Maker Cartridge to create the “lines” between, above and below my photos. To create the layout, I started with a base of Leaf Green Cardstock and added a layer of turquoise stylized wave patterned paper…

Hi Connie NIchol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring the new Wild Rose collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This company has such beautiful products and the wild rose collection is a great addition to anyone’s craft stash.  As usual, the collection includes coordinating paper, stamps, dies and dimensional shaping molds, with the wild roses coming in both small and large sizes.  This makes them super versatile because you can use the single flowers as I did below, or layer many sizes together to make a flower full of  dimension.  Heartfelt Creations papers go so well with pictures from my childhood.  This one is scanned from a 35 mm slide from 1963.  I remember the scratchy couch and my favourite stuffed bunny whose name was Teddy. You can create your roses and leaves by stamping with the cling mount stamps and colouring,  or I used the coordinating dies to cut them…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Jayme Loge here with a glimpse of what is on my scrapbook table.  I am going to share a layout with you that documents these Covid times as we are experiencing it. Everything changed so quickly- life was its usual busy self and then it was pared back to just the essentials. Although there are many stresses and trials while living with this virus, there have been many gifts too. I am enjoying the calm and the refocus of what really matters to me. I spent so much time in my pre-covid life just running from task to task that I was not really present for much of it. I lived all those activities but didn’t really experience them.  Now, just the simple act of getting groceries is more intent-full, fully felt and a delightful part of my week.  I am loving that! I attempted to capture…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a flowery layout featuring assorted MultiCraft products, Elizabeth Craft Designs Way with Words dies and a lovely quote from Quietfire Design. As a frugal scrapbooker, I frequently check out the craft aisle of my local dollar stores for affordable Forever in Time, Color Factory, Krafty Kids and Craft Medley products.  These are all brand names under the MultiCraft umbrella. The layout was totally inspired by this beautiful Forever in Time foiled flower embellishments.  There is a lovely variety of colours and sizes in the package.  Excellent value for decorating a variety of cards and layouts. I also used some MultiCraft patterned paper that I had in my stash and put the whole thing together with Multi-Craft liquid and foam adhesives. These foam squares are perfect under the flower die cuts to add a little dimension. The title is two die cuts from the Elizabeth…

Hi friends! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here, sharing a layout based on the March 2020 Sketchy Challenge sketch! Each month I look forward to seeing and using Kerry Engelle’s FREE sketch, and this month I’m using the new Spring Medley Collection from Creative Memories to create my layout based on it. It is a beautiful collection with soft blue, aqua and green accented with navy, gray and beige, and I love that there is a Designer Paper Pack with beautiful patterns AND a Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack that are so versatile! The collection also features sweet stickers, beautiful mat cards, fun paper pockets & embellishments, and a beautiful new Spring Leaf Border Maker Cartridge – all of which work together to document so many different occasions and themes! Take a look: And here is Kerry’s March Sketch from the Sketchy Gallery that I’ll be basing my own layout on: To start…

Happy  Tuesday! Kim here on the Creative Scrapbooker blog again, sharing a couple of projects I worked on this past weekend! I’m sure, if you are a bit like me, that every now and then you find some paper that makes you super happy! Well, when I came across Echo Park Paper Co. Little Lumberjack Collection, it made me squeal just a bit! I LOVE all the plaids, patterns and whimsical designs. They will honestly keep lumberjacks of all ages happy! I first created a simple layout. I layered a square of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to the plaid background. I don’t often work with exact measurements, instead I often just use intuition based all parts! I then cut 4 rectangles from papers in the collection, approximately 3.5 x 5. This became the main component to build upon, from this point it’s all fun and embellishment! I had fun layering the stickers,…

Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with a fun and FREE Cut-File that is perfect to use with the new Magic Awaits collection by Creative Memories! This happy and bright collection is awesome for documenting photos of adventures in theme parks, carnivals and fairs, playgrounds, birthday parties and lots of other adventures. The red, black and yellow color palette make is super versatile for so many occasions! I loved the name of the collection so much that I decided to create a cut-file featuring it. The “Magic Awaits” title and shadow layer cut-files can be resized and used on layouts, mini-albums or even cards. I’ve provided both elements in PNG, JPG and SVG format so you can use it with many different electronic cutting machines. You can download the free cut-file in the OCM Shop I envisioned using this cut-file as the title on a layout showing my boys arriving…

Some additional supplies used on my layout include: Chameleon Fineliner pens for my journaling. A couple of adhesives from Glue Dots.
