Happy  Monday Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Jayme here with a little peek at what is on my scrapbook table.  I’ve started working on a Christmas gift for my daughter, which may be the earliest I have ever accomplished such a thing. I’m feeling rather proud of myself! So, what is this gift going to be? A recipe book! My daughter comes from a long line of people who love to cook, and she is no exception. She will graduate this year and head off to her adult life soon, so I thought it might be a useful keepsake to have a collection of some of her best-loved recipes from our house as well as those of her grandparents’. I started with a Prima Memory Hardware Chipboard Album and found the perfect paper line from Simple Stories called ‘Apron Strings’. It’s filled with great vintage kitchen images and I love using the…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

She’s turning 8. It doesn’t surprise me. She acts 8. And I am excited to see what this year brings. But I just want to freeze time so that I never forget what 7 brought. That’s where mini books help. Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Srapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am celebrating her turning 8. So let’s do this.  I never over think mini books. In order to start, I make some decisions about the cover. That was easy for me – Stampin’ Up!’s Share What You Love Designer Series Paper with the polka dots catches my eye every time I create a fun project. A bit of machine sewing around the edges gives the cover that finished look I am looking for. If you are eyeing the beautiful butterfly and floral die cuts on the cover, these are from a new Stampin’ Up! product called…
