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…

Hey crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here and today I have a funky and fun layout to share featuring the Ranger Dylusions Flight of Fancy stamps along with my Chameleon Color Tone Pens. Here are all of the nitty-gritty details. First create your layered cardstock background. The kraft cardstock is 10.75×10.75 and matted in white cardstock that is 11×11.

This weekend I pulled out a paper stack from Paper House Productions – Field Study – and scrapbooked a few photos from harvest 2016. I thoroughly enjoy paper stacks. They are easy to store, tons of coordinating papers and with Paper House Productions, they also include a sticker sheet that is also sealed in the binding. I love that! Here is a very simple layout that I created. A little fun element on my layout is the birch stencil in the background. I laid the stencil down and applied transparent texture paste.  When the texture pasted dried I wasn’t happy with the slight watermark color. So I painted it black.  Definitely, an easier way to get this texture is to simply add the black paint to the texture paste! Save a tedious painting step! Next time (LOL) SUPPLIES Paper House Productions Patterned Paper Paper House Productions Stickers and Washi Tape Ranger…

Check out this gorgeous layout Kerry Engel designed. From the wintery photos to the acetate snowflakes to the texture paste background – I seriously feel the crisp fresh air of a beautiful winter day just looking at this creation! One of the things I particularly love on Kerry’s layout is the photo of the footsteps walking away in the snow. What a great angle! Here are the supplies Kerry used to put together her layout.

Hi everyone! Noreen Smith here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com to share a not-too-spooky Halloween layout along with some cut files that I created for you today! I’m using the Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Paper Pack and Stickers from Creative Memories which feature iconic fall colors and patterns with hints of Halloween. They are perfect for photos from the Pumpkin Patch, corn maze, bobbing for apples, Jack-O-Lantern Carving, Halloween costumes and parties, and of course, all things Pumpkin Spice! You might remember that last May I designed a Sunburst cut file to share with you, and I decided to take a spooky spin on it and turn it into a spider web! The rays of the sun became the radials of the web and I added the curved spirals in between to create a web that can be cut on any electronic cutting device! And what’s a web without a spider? Inspired by…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a simple Happy Birthday layout featuring products by MultiCraft and Chameleon Pens. I was immediately drawn to Multicraft’s Art Therapy Stickers. They are massive stickers that you can color, how fun is that?  They offer so many possibilities.  The package comes with large stickers and labels that can be combined to create a graphic, whimsical layout. I could have colored the entire sticker, (they are smooth and they love Chameleon Pens), but I opted to leave it in black and white and just color one label.I adhered the label sticker to some cardstock to give it some strength.  After I colored it with my Chameleon Pens I mounted it on foam squares to give some dimension to the layout. The large Art Therapy stickers have a sentiment in the middle. Using an exact-o knife I cut around the inside of…

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…
