It’s finally here! It’s the sun! Yes! But also, Stampin’ Up! has released their new annual catalogue. This means that you will get to be inspired by new products and projects. To view and download a digital copy of the catalogue CLICK HERE! I am here to show you one of my favourite paper lines from the new catalogue called In Good Taste. This 24-page paper pack is filled with 12×12 patterns and prints that will co-ordinate with all your projects. Check it out! To create this scrapbook page, I began by flipping through the patterned paper pages. This time I looked for a couple contrasting patterns that complimented each other. Once I selected my two I decided to use the darker page as the background. I am a simple scrapbooker. I absolutely love repeating shapes and clean lines. Because I scrapbook in 8.5×11”, I cut the gray page at…

A BIG hello from Kim! Just popping in to share a quick look at some inky fun I was having, that will get added to a card base to send off to a friend! I recently got this new Picket Fence stamp set: Beauty & Song . I love all the details and look forward to using it lots more. It’s a big stamp, so you could easily use the entire image of parts of it. For this project, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of computer paper, cut around it and added some repositional adhesive to the back. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L makes a great adhesive with the perfect amount of tack, that is easily removed when needed. I positioned the sentiment to mask the area where it would eventually be permanently stamped. I stamped my main image over the mask using a stamp positioner. Using my Life…

I just don’t even know what to say. The world took a one-eighty and I am okay one day and not okay the next. Mental wellness is high on the priority list. For me, that means using scrapbooking as a tool to stay positive. Using words to keep some control in a society where I have no control. When I create, I can find happiness. And right now, it’s more important than ever. Today I am sharing the words and the page that I documented to help me move through my feelings. “We made it to April. We are more than two weeks in. It still feels unbelievable. It still feels scary. But we keep trying to focus on the good. There’s so much good. And the sun will come out again.       My anxieties and worries are slowly reducing every day. There are still financial worries but largely…

This is my six-year-old son Jack. He absolutely loves dinosaurs. So, when we went on vacation to Florida a couple of weeks ago we were sure to check out Dinosaur World. Dinosaur World did not disappoint. It was clean and quiet. It had a perfect balance of something for the tiniest littles to the adults. And let’s get serious here – dinosaurs are cool no matter what your age. So, when Stampin’ Up! released the Dinoroar Product Suite, it was a must-buy for me. I just didn’t realize it was going to come in handy so quickly. Like a handful of others, Stampin’ Up! has made life easy for you by having sweet images on their Dinoroar Designer Series Paper that can be cut out using their Dino Days framelits rather than only the stamps. This bundle has been a favourite of mine hands down. I mean, I can’t see…

Hello everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Come Sail Away With Me collection by Stampin’ Up! I am so happy to be back here this month showing you what I love from Stampin’ Up! For the past couple months, I have been busy creating memories rather than documenting them. I’ve been adventuring from one coast to another and it’s time now for me to begin getting these stories told. Today, I was inspired by the Come Sail Away With Me Memories and More cards (Click Here) and corresponding Designer Series Paper. (CLICK HERE) It didn’t take long for me to capture the memories of me hiking to see the Heceta Lighthouse on the West Coast. “I don’t know why I didn’t ask any of the other ladies to join me but off I went to the Oregon Coastline to see the Pacific…

Hello everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog saying HELLO to the NEW Magnolia Lane collection by Stampin’ Up! It’s the most exciting time of year for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators worldwide. Tomorrow, June 4th marks the release of the new 2019-2020 annual catalogue. While many of the products are not available until tomorrow, I am able to show you the Magnolia Lane Product Suite. I am in love with florals lately and so this product suite really spoke to me. Ironically I have been working hard to complete my 2016 scrapbook album and this photo of my daughter in the sunset was perfect for this suite. Since the pattern of this Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is quite busy, I layered the new colored vellum by Stampin’ Up! behind the photo. This helped move the focus of this scrapbook page from the flowers to the photo.…
