Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  I’ve loved plumeria since I first went to Hawaii in (cough, cough) 1974. I just couldn’t resist Heartfelt Creations Plumeria and their Tropical Paradise Collection. It just makes me smile. It reminds of Hawaiian leis, beaches and Don Ho’s “Tiny Bubbles” (it was 1974, remember?). To create the flowers I stamped one set in pink (and one in orange) Clearsnap ColorBox ink. I left everything on the stamp positioner so that I could stamp on top and then emboss once I was done coloring. I embossed with Clearsnap ColorBox clear embossing powder.I coloured the stamps with Stabilo Carbothello chalk pastel pencils. I blended the colours with a blending nib. I did the same thing with the Parrot.  I followed the instructions on the Heartfelt Creations website on how to put together the plumeria. https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/150/ez-steps-to-create-plumerias  I also highlighted the flowers…

Hi everyone – Noreen Smith here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.Do you use sketches in your scrapbooking? They are so versatile and you can use them over and over again, right? Well, you can really do the same thing with a card sketch! At this time of year there are so many occasions that you might be creating cards for, so why not use one sketch as the basic design and change up your supplies to create all of the cards you need quickly and easily? Each month I design a “1-2-3 Card Sketch” that gets its name because it uses just 1 sentiment, 2 paper shapes and 3 embellishments. I create a handout with the sketch and measurements as well as samples of the finished cards, along with a video that demonstrates how quick it can be to create cards using this formula (if you’re interested, you…

Hello everyone – Vicki Wizniuk here! Today I am sharing a few cards I created using the new Prickly Pear papers from Close to My Heart! I love the fresh and funky colour palette in this pack. For my first card, I paired the Prickly Pear papers with the Prickly Pear Cardmaking stamp set.  I love that these new stamp sets have matching Thin Cuts dies, making creating even that much easier! To add colour the stamped and die-cut cactus, I used my inks and small waterbrush to simply paint the colours on. Tip:  I like to use Black Memento ink to stamp the image, as it dries quickly and it doesn’t “bleed” when I use my waterbrush to add the colours. I added a few sequins from the Prickly Pear Sequins pack.  I love how easily you can combine everything just by going by the name of the product…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here with one sketch – three different projects. This is a good sketch for a big or dominant photo that really tells your story. The curvy diagonal lines create movement and energy. Supplies:  Creative Memories Cap and Gown Collection, Clearsnap ColorBox ink and embossing powder,  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Stampin’ Up! gold thread, Studio Calico brad. An old Colleague of mine posted her graduation photos on Facebook one day and I instantly had an urge to scrap them. The Cap and Gown collection from Creative Memories has several “2107” embellishments but it’s really a versatile collection. The colors work really well with vintage photos.  I glammed it up a bit with gold embossing powder and shiny brads and thread. The papers held up well to mix media techniques. And the coordinating album is a really classy.  Supplies: Donna Salazar for  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  Denim Art Journal and…

Hi Friends! It’s June and that means that Stampin’ Up! has released a brand new catalogue. It’s something I look forward to every year.  I love looking at the new products and admiring the ideas inside the crisp pages while enjoying a hot cup of coffee out of my favourite mug.  Armed with a sharpie and a pen, I check off products that I already own and create a list of “needs”, “wants” and “maybes” inside my bullet journal. One of my “need now” items is a product bundle called Birthday Delivery which includes a stamp set and a matching die. I have been swooning over the images in this set for months. There are plenty of images on the co-ordinating paper, as well as the stamp set but today I am focusing on this little girl.  When I saw her I immediately thought about my mother… She certainly taught…
