Well hello, Crafters! It’s that time of year when I try to get ahead of the holiday season. I’ve got my tree up and my house is decorated, my lengthy shopping list is dwindling thanks to some early-bird holiday sales, and I have my planner scheduled with events to make sure I visit all those I care about. But I’ve got a great reason to get things done early this year so I best try a little harder this year. I am expecting baby number 3 in late January! With most of my family taken care of, next on my list is teacher Christmas gifts. Typically, I give them a gift card along with one of my favourite things to keep things a little more personal (I gave them my favourite mascara last year). Teacher cards can often be difficult to find. As a card maker, it’s a style that…

Gnomes are HOT this holiday season! And they should be – they are smile makers! Kerry Engel was busy in her craft room playing with some Gnome themed stamps by Impression Obsession. The results are super fun! Here are the stamps that Kerry used. She fussy cut and popped up elements using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. Here is another one of her creations. This is the sentiment Kerry stamped inside. SOOO fun!!!! I have to go grab these stamps! Thank you, Kerry, for the inspiration! Kerry is a MORNING crafter!

Kerry Engel has been a little Christmas Elf creating Christmas cards for friends and families. Recently she was playing with the Impression Obsession Birch Logs & Twigs die set. Look at this beautiful card that she designed. Here are a few details of all those glorious layers. She adhered everything down using Glue Dots Glue Lines. Perfect for those birch logs. The Merry Christmas sentiment is also an Impression Obsession die. GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! It’s a little piece of a winter wonderland!

Our design team member, Kerry Engel has been playing with the Quilted Poinsettia Frame Die by Impression Obsession and I am loving the results.  Here is one of her creations. She cut the die out onto our heavyweight Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. The base of the card was created using some Therm O Web Gina K. Designs cardstock. Kerry Colored the quilted poinsettia frame die using Amy Tangerine watercolors by American Crafts. For the inside of the card, Kerry used another Impression Obsession die and colored it using Ranger Wendy Vecchi embossing powder. Kerry adhered everything to her card using Therm O Web iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive and Sticky Strip Runner. The results are GORGEOUS! Want to see more of Kerry’s creations?

Yahooo! Christmas card making season is around the corner OR maybe it is right now!  Christmas truly is one of my MOST favorite times of the year…and without a doubt, the card making that goes on in the next few months is sooooooooo INSPIRING! Recently our design team member, Kerry Engel, was playing with some Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel and she came up with this SPARKLING card. Kerry used the Carta Bella Christmas Market Holly stencil to create the background. Along with the Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel.

Happy Sunday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog creating a shiny SHAKER card. I’m still relatively new to stamping and card making. I tend to go all in and try to use as many products as I can. Thankfully, Therm O Web understands and always has amazing corresponding products that feed my need for “lots of details”.  Their Gina K. Designs Premium cardstock has been a game-changer for me; it’s smooth, high-quality finish has helped to elevate my stamping and embossing…and then they have foil – how did I ever create without foil before? Here is how I created this very happy, shiny shaker card: Step 1- STAMP Stamp the sentiment, “Thanks Snow Much”. Stamp and emboss snowflakes with Gina K. Designs Baby, it’s Cold Outside stamps. I used Clearsnap, Top Boss, ink and silver embossing powder. Step 2 – FOIL Using a laminator add Gina K. Designs…

#hellodecember Isn’t is sneaky how December creeps up on you like that? You think it’s so far away and then the first of December is here and you are already feeling like you have dropped the ball on finding matching family pajamas and getting photos in time for the Black Friday sales! Well, my friends – I am here to tell you that you are not alone. However, I am beginning to embrace the frantic. So, here I come December!! Away we go! As always, the holiday season means I am in my craft room creating projects from tags to cards to mini scrapbooks. Today’s project is a card along with a gift for a special someone. I created this card by starting out with the Wood Texture Paper Stack from Stampin’ Up! I am really enjoying the plaids and wooden elements in the décor aisles so I wanted to…

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a selection of shimmery foiled Christmas cards I made with Therm O Web Foil-Mates and Fancy Foils from Gina K Designs. I am new to the idea of foiling, and I have to tell you that I am in LOVE. Although I was initially intimidated by the idea, it is so simple to create these beautiful cards. You just place the foil of your choice over a pre-printed toner sheet (the Foil-Mates), run it through a laminator and the magic happens. Here are a few cards that I whipped up – once you start laminating foils onto patterns, it’s hard to stop! Just add a bit of ribbon or a couple of flowers and you’re good to go. You can even use the used foil for a card background as I did in the last card. The used foils are too pretty to throw…
