Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring some bright sunny colours and a couple of easy techniques featuring reinkers, gesso and cling wrap. Supplies Used:  CTMH stamps, ink, reinkers, heart dies, cardstock and patterned paper, Ranger Industries gesso, stencil and glossy paper. I started by tinting some white gesso from Ranger with a few drops of Lemon reinker from Close to My Heart and smooshing it through a Dina Wakley large block stencil onto a piece of cardstock.  I just wanted to take the edge off of the white, but if you wanted a more intense colour, just add more reinker to customize the gesso colour to whatever you want.   While that was drying, I made some marbleized looking paper by spraying some ink onto a piece of crumpled cling wrap and pressing onto a piece of glossy paper.  I let that dry too, then cut out…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here with a fun card for you to colour and design at home. This card is a bit of a mash-up. I first drew out the words and cut out half the butterfly on my electronic cutting machine. You could easily just print it out on cardstock and fussy cut half the butterfly if you do not have a cutting machine. – CLICK HERE for the project.I stamped around the words with a Falling Flowers stamp from Stampin’ Up! I made a mask of the stamp (and words) so I could layer the flowers down the side of the card.I used a Ranger  embossing pen and traced around the main title and used clear embossing powder to create a raised border on the letters. I  coloured in the letters, butterfly and flowers using my Chameleon pens. Shading and layering with various yellows and oranges. To finish it…

Hello from Michelle Stewart! I’m a consultant with Close to My Heart all the way from Halifax, Nova Scotia and I’m so happy to be a guest blogger for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Today I want to share with you some cards I’ve made using 3 of the paper collections that are still currently available in our Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog. This first card is created using the Dreamin’ Big Paper, and I love the color pallet for this paper collection.  I’ve used the Dreamin’ Big cardmaking stamp for this card and fussy cut leaving a white boarder.  I didn’t have sequins in the colour I wanted, but no big deal.  Just grab some alcohol markers and colour some silver ones to match. For this next card, I used this pale pink patterned paper from the Hello Lovely collection. I wanted to create a soft feminine card so I used the…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout inspired by the March sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine sketchy gallery and products from the beautiful Simple Stories Reset Girl line. Here’s the sketch.  I know I’m a month late, but hey, sketches never expire.  The Sketchy Gallery has the perfect sketch for any occasion. The layout was very easy to put together.  I just took pieces of patterned paper from the Reset Girl collection, rearranged them and rotated to look sort of like the March sketch and added a few stickers to finish up.  I also like applying washi tape to the top and bottom of the page, it just adds a little bit of ‘extra’.  Simple and done – another memory and beautiful photograph of friends is ready for the scrapbook album.    Supplies Used:  Simple Stories patterned paper and stickers, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesive, Sakura pen.

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Today I thought I would switch things up a bit from what I normally create and create some tags that you could use for any occasion. Using the beautiful Lavender Breeze Collection from FabScraps, a few fabulous chipboard pieces and flowers from Southern Ridge Trading Company, wonderful stones and embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and a variety of products from Ranger, I was able to create these beautiful Any Occasion Tags. Make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, as I show you how to recreate my tags in the comfort of your own home. To start, pull out two #8 Manilla Craft Tags from Ranger. With your tags out, you’ll need the Memory Lane and Simplicity patterned paper from FabScraps.
