Windows, flowers and a bright colour scheme, can you tell that I’m ready for Spring? Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine bloghaving some fun with Therm O Web products!When our design team package arrived bursting with Therm O Web Gina K. Designs and iCraft products –  the first thing that caught my eye were the Decofoil Clear Designer Toner Sheets with the floral sketch design. So many possibilities and they felt so springy!

Good morning and happy Monday! Kim here with a quick birthday card share today! This month I challenged myself to use the April Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for a card. Even before choosing my products, I knew I wanted to make the triangle accent from stamps! I created a paper mask from my Impression Obsession stamped image so I could easily overlap my stamped design making it look like one continuous image – I love how it turned out! I took a black marker and ruler to divide the two sides. I created three layered areas using stamps, stencil and Clearsnap Chalk ink! I fussy cut the bird image and layered it with the Impression Obsession die cut pine boughs and a little black tread. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment was a perfect finishing touch! Thanks for taking the time to check out my card, try one of our…

Hey crafty peeps… Nicole Wright here and I get to share this fun tutorial on  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Ranger with these delicious embossing powders from Wendy Vecchi.  I have to be honest, keeping the background stark white was really hard.  Especially when there are so many yummy Ranger products to create with.  However, I wanted to make these embossing powders POP with color. This is the perfect project to use up your scraps.  This scrap of Super Stock Cardstock is thick enough for the Emboss it Dabber and Potting Soil embossing powder. I die cut the Handwritten Journey “moments” embossed with the Potting Soil embossing powder.  Using the Magentic Platform helps this thinlit die from shifting.Apply Emboss it Dabber to the chipboard cut and apply each color of embossing powder.  Before you heat the embossing powder run your finger along the…

She’s a Garden Girl. Oh my, yes she is. And I am oh, so very ready for Spring.Instead of focusing on the Garden Girl herself, I thought I would create a couple projects with the cute little flower bed and the sweet bird. Those little things are the exact signs of Spring I am waiting for here on the East Coast of Canada. To start these cards, I began by stamping the images on water colour paper. They were then coloured using Stampin’ Write Markers and a water brush or aqua painter. Of course, I am silly enough to hand cut out the images.Did you know that Stampin’ Up! carries embossing paste in several colours as well as a variety of stencils? On today’s project I use the white embossing paste to add texture to the background of my cards. The Pattern Party Decorative Masks Bundle comes with four 8×8…

Hello! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com. Spring is right around the corner (although you’d never know it from the amount of snow still on the ground in Calgary!) and with it come so many wonderful events to celebrate – Easter, Spring Birthdays, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Graduations, First Communions & Confirmations, and Mother’s Day…Blessed events for sure! I thought it would be great to have a bunch of cards made up ahead of time for some of these lovely celebrations using Creative Memories stunning Full Bloom and Timber Paper Packs, along with the coordinating Full Bloom Embellishments and Stickers. I love the juxtaposition of the pretty pastel florals and the rough-hewn wood patterns – it reminds me of a bouquet of freshly picked wildflowers set in a mason jar on a rough farmhouse table! And, I love the way these cards turned out.For those of us who don’t have a…

Every year Stampin’ Up! has a promotion during the months of January through March called Sale-a-Bration.  Sale-a-Bration gives a chance to customers to receive exclusive products with every $60 qualifying order. Party Pandas just so happens to be one of my favourite exclusive items from this year’s promotion. You’ve got less than one month to try to snag these perfect little Party Pandas stamp set. Both of today’s projects begins with a small piece of watercolour paper. Using an aqua painter or water brush, I did a background wash with Calypso Coral refill ink. You can also create a watercolour wash using ink pads, markers and paint. While the ink dried on it’s own, I stamped several of the Party Pandas on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Up!’s Black Archival Ink and coloured them with Stampin’ Up! Blends Markers.After cutting out my pandas by hand, I arranged them around the…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Winter has definitely hit the west coast of Canada this week and we even ended up with a white Christmas. With the cold weather here, I decided to create a winter note card .
