Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Winter has definitely hit the west coast of Canada this week and we even ended up with a white Christmas.

Hello Friends and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today. My name is Karan Gerber and I am thrilled to be here with you today sharing my first post. School for many started back this past week and with that, I am reminded that fall is right around the corner. What I most love about fall is the cooler temps; harvest season and the bright bold colors of the gorgeous Sunflower. Did you know that Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity? This is one reason it makes them one of my favorite flowers to create with the long list of stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. So let’s get on with the “You are my Sunshine” Card I created for my first post here. I used the papers, stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. The card base measures 7.5 x 5.5 on black cardstock. I cut one piece from…

Hello Everyone – Cathy Caines here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. It’s the time of year when we say goodbye to summer. But in my teens, it also meant that I was saying goodbye to my friends and family as I set off to begin another school year away from home. It’s always hard to leave and for anyone going through their first year, it’s especially tough. If I am speaking to you – you got this.  Sure, you’ll be poor and stressed out but everyone around you will be in the same boat.  Tap into those around you and try hard to work on finding your true calling. The only way to do this is to think about what makes you happy. Good luck and always remember you can only do your best – nobody expects anything more.About a month ago a lady called me and said that…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with an autumn themed card featuring Impression Obsession stamps along with a Tombow adhesives and Clearsnap ink.  The DCWV burlap is a MUST HAVE! It is super easy to work with and adds a home spun feel to any project. The Project The Products This rake and leaf die set is the cutest from Impression Obsession.   I love that there are multiple leaf dies in this set.  It makes it very fast to cut out a bunch of leaves in assorted fall colours. I used a Tombow glue pen to adhere the leaves and the rake to my card.  It’s very precise and easy to use and works perfectly for tiny or intricate die cuts. The Impression Obsession stamp set is called ‘Watch the Leaves’.   This is also a great quote to use on fall themed scrapbook layouts.I backed the stamped sentiment with burlap…
