Hey everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! When I first saw this die set from Stamp Anniething I was immediately drawn to it; maybe it’s because I had just listened to a podcast about King Tutankhamen or maybe it was because I love geometric shapes.  I have a stash of papers that I made on my gel plate that I knew would be perfect for the pyramid. If you want to learn gel plate printing check out this free tutorial that Kim Gowdy and I did for The Great Canadian virtual Carnival last fall.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrZL_wdFxho If you don’t have any gel plate prints you could use cardstock or create custom papers using Ranger Distress Oxide inks.   I created the backgrounds on Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock with Ranger Distress Oxide Inks. I did a search on Pinterest of the pyramids at night to find…

Halloween is in the AIR!!!! I have been lovin’ all the spooky creations that have been popping up all over social media! I particularly LOVED this little shaker card designed by Betty Lim-Silvernail that I found on her blog featuring all kinds of products by Stamp Anniething! Betty designed the shaker on her card using the Stamp Anniething Shaker Basics Die Set 1 and the Spider Web Shaker Die Add On. She fill her shaker with the sweetest Stamp Anniething Sprinkles – Friday Night Sprinkles and Batty for You. The Stamp Anniething paper Betty used included the Awakening Glitter Pack and the super cute Pumpkins Paper Pack. And of course, Betty used the Stamp Anniething Natalie-Lil’ Devil Stamp Set. LOVE IT! Be sure to pop on over to Stamp Anniething and check out their HUGE selection of MUST HAVE fun products!!!! Happy Thursday Friends!

To say that I am addicted to my Brother P-Touch Cube (PT-P300BTAD) is a little of an under statement. This little machine is a game changer for me. FAST, EASY, TONS of OPTIONS and the added bonus of printing on ribbon – I am in scrappy heaven. WOWZERS! From printing custom sentiments, in different fonts, in different colours on different backgrounds for cards – to adding journaling strips to my layouts and planner pages… and then of course labelling just about EVERYTHING!  Seriously – you need to add this little gadget to your MUST HAVE TOOLS! Here are a few examples of a FEW of the different varieties of drop-in cartridges that are EFFORTLESS to use! Here is a little example of a card I designed using the P-Touch Cube to create the sentiment on this mystical greeting card. Take a minute or two and watch as I put this…

Hello CSM scrapbookers! Kim here! It feels like it’s been so long since I last shared a project…likely because it’s so darn HOT in Alberta, which means my craft room is crazy hot! I melt in heat, making it hard to spend time there lately! Despite the heat, some Picket Fence Studio dies found their way to my room and called me to play. Both sets are designed for slimline cards, but as I played with them, so many ideas have come to mind for future scrapbooking use! My card is simple and FUN. My background was created with a cheap set of watercolour paints and Ranger water color paper. I literally just painted wide random stripes onto watercolour paper and let it dry. Using the two largest rectangle dies I cut my striped paper and a dark grey/black cardstock to create my background. Using an ephemera pack from the…

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little card to share and a few little step by step tips on simple colouring technique. The stamps and coordinating dies are from Picket Fence Studios. The Que Sera, Sera collection.  Here are all of the details. Step one is to stamp the images you would like to use onto white cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Now I gathered the colours that I wanted to use on my images. A little trick of mine, is that I keeping the backing from my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares. They can be used as blending surfaces. I always have a little pile of them at my desk for just this purpose. Often when I am colouring I like to add colour straight to cardstock in the areas where I want the colour the darkest. Here is…

I am Party Puffin obsessed!! Okay, okay, you caught me. Being from Newfoundland, Canada and puffins being our official bird and all, the second I saw the word “puffin” I said “Yes, please!” It’s just icing on the cake that these puffins are in a party mood.
