Hello CSM friends! Thanks for dropping by to see how this sweet “HELLO” card came together. I used several fun products from MultiCraft’s Forever in Time products. Neutrals Cardstock, 6×6 paper stack; “Vintage 2”, Laser-Cut Wood Stickers and Epoxy Alpha Buttons. The papers have some gorgeous patterns and their size is perfect for card making! One of the key principles of design is repetition. For my card, I chose to repeat elements from the patterned paper – the rose image, the colours and the circle shape of the roses. My Chameleon pens were the key ingredient to matching the colours. I used them to colour the laser-cut wooden rose & leaf,  as well as the epoxy alpha, even on the wood I was able to get nice blending of colours! …and I can’t even tell you how yummy it was to colour on the epoxy buttons! The colour was perfect…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been playing a lot with Brea Reese watercolor inks. They are very bright and beautifully transparent. The glitter inks are just yummy. They are perfect for making the galaxy paintings that you see all over Instagram and Pinterest. Brea Reese watercolor inks are dye-based ink and they dry quickly. They are very concentrated…a little goes a long way. If you put them in a paint pallet they will dry in the pallet and when you come back later with a wet brush you can re-activate them. To make this card download a mermaid tail and turned it into a stencil. You could use any large silhouette type shape with this technique. Large flowers work well too. To begin, trace the tail onto watercolor paper. Use the rough side of 140 Lb, cold pressed watercolor paper. Paint the inside of…

Hello everyone – Karen Ellis here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with some pretty cool foil products from Therm O Web lately and I wanted to show you one of the cards birthday cards I’ve created using it. I wish photos did these foiled products more justice.  They are awesome!  The whole Gina K Designs line works so nicely together and each package comes with many sheets making it really easy for those who also like to mass produce or even coordinate invitations!  But, before I get too ahead of myself, let me show you how I created this particular card.

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am excited to be sharing with you a baby themed project. With spring being here, it means that flowers are blooming and babies are arriving. For me, I always find it challenging to create a baby card because it’s one of those types of cards that you don’t need often. So, by using the adorable Oh Baby! line from Simple Stories, a variety of chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company, Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies, Ink from Ranger Ink, adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Super Stock Cardstock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, I was able to create this cute Welcome Home Little One Card. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite spring beverage as I share with you how to recreate my Welcome Home Little One Card at home.…

Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. We must celebrate! Indeed we do! We have many things to celebrate including the carry over of the Celebrate You Thinlet Dies into the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. Since it’s introduction in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I have made too many projects to count with these thinlet dies. When I heard they would carry over I was over the moon!Today’s projects were created combining the Celebrate You Thinlet Dies as well as the sans serif sentiments of the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. I love mixing and matching different stamps and dies.To create the above card, you must first make the multi-colored background.  With your Aqua Painter, dip each colour into the refill ink one by one resulting in a multi-colored wash. I would recommend drying each colour with a Heat Tool…

Hello Friday, so glad to see you again! Hey everyone, Kim Gowdy  here with a quick card share for you. I don’t know about you, but April and May have my calendar FULL of birthdays and anniversaries! As a paper crafter, people expect a homemade card and honestly, I feel a bit guilty if I don’t step up to the plate! These birthday cards were all made using Simple Stories Beautiful Collection. When I need to make lots of cards, I tend to put away my ink and stamps and pull out collections of papers and embellishments!Because the colours and patterns in a collection are designed to play well together, it’s EASY to layer paper, stickers, die cuts etc. Before you know it, a handful of cards…. DONE like dinner! [Maybe dinner didn’t get made because I was making cards…just sayin!]I made this first card simply by layering paper and…

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!

Send it fold first and avoid folds or uneven parchment…

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…
