Hi everyone! Noreen Smith here, and I’m so happy to be back on the Creative Scrapbooker blog today sharing a couple of projects made with Creative Memories’ new school-themed Bookworm Collection! A Peek at the Bookworm Collection I’m sure I say this every year, but where has the summer gone? It’s hard to believe that it’s the middle of August and my kids will be starting school in just a couple of weeks! But, I must admit that Back-to-School is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love thinking about the possibilities of the year ahead, buying fun new stationary supplies and enjoying the hint of fall leaves in the air. As I’ve been getting ready for the new school year, I just had to stop to reflect on past school years and create a quick layout and teacher gift with CM’s cute new products! For the…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a  layout that features some adorably funny Art Impressions stamps.  These stamps always brings a huge smile to my face.  Although I’m sure they are most often used to make cards, why not use them to embellish a scrapbook layout?  I had the perfect photograph to go with a stamp of three friends drinking wine! Stamps Used Here’s the Art Impressions stamp sets I used.  I had two sets of funny wine stamps in my stash and I wanted to use them both.  I stamped and coloured the ladies from the Girlfriends set with markers, then stamped some of the funny wine expressions, cutting each of them out and backing with black cardstock. Paper Products Used The paper and stickers I used are from the Be Happy 12 x 12 paper pad from Paper House Productions.  Such beautiful patterns and these soft pink and…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans – Katelyn Grosart here today! I hope that you’re having a fabulous Summer so far. Dream Card Using the Serendipity Collection from BoBunny, some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs as well as a few products from Ranger Ink, I was able to create my Dream card. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I show you how to recreate this card in the comforts of your own home. Building the Card From the Serendipity paper by BoBunny, cut a piece that measures 4 1/4” x 6 1/4”. Using the 3” Stitched Rectangle die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, cut a stitched rectangle from the same piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of both pieces of papers using an edge distressor. Ink the edges of the patterned paper pieces using a blending with foam and Vintage…

Hi everyone Noreen Smith once again playing with Creative Memories! Happy to be back on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today sharing a couple of layouts made with Creative Memories’ new Slice of Summer seasonal products! As soon as I saw the papers, stickers and variety mat pack for this collection I knew it would work for lots of fun summer photos.For the first layout I chose several photos of my family at the beach last year in Osoyoos, British Columbia. The photos are not the best, as the sun was behind my sons as they stood in the lake, but I wanted to use them to remember the lovely, relaxing holiday that we had. I figured that cropping them down would help, so I chose the best photo to leave as the largest (4” x 4”), then trimmed down the supporting photos to 3” x 3”. I matted all…

A new way to organize our lives is taking the creative industry by storm….look out planners, here comes the bullet journal! What is a bullet journal, or ‘bujo’ for short? Essentially it’s a way to organize our daily lives, tracking anything like daily schedules, tasks, or moods or exercise or nutrition….the list (no pun intended) is endless. All you need to start with is a blank notebook, and there are lots to choose from. One of the more popular journals is a Leuchtturm brand, which is a hardcover book with grids or lines or dots. I decided to get a Leuchtturm with a dot grid, and then I went online to learn more. A few YouTube videos later, I joined a bullet journal Facebook group and jumped in to create my first ‘weekly spread’ with a big bunch of fabulous Tombow products. To design all the colourful elements, I used…

There are some layouts that just stop you in your tracks. That is exactly what I did when I found this layout over at Kaisercraft.  Tatiana Yemelyanenko designed this layout featuring all kinds of their products including glitter cardstock, flourishes, chipboard, pearls, rhinestones, blooms, ink and MORE. This  layout is truly packed with scrapboooking love.   Layers and layers of paper, flowers, die cuts, pearls and dimensional adhesive have been put together as a frame-like focal point for the adorable black and white photo. The added touch of ink splatters here and there are the perfect final touch.  Project of the Month What I discovered as I kept on browsing the Kaisercraft website is that each and every month, they feature a project of the month. That is what this stunning layout was created for! I also discovered that Tatiana used a beautiful new collection from Kaisercraft called Lilac Whisper that…

Hello everyone – Tracy McLennon here today! Are you a planner lover like I am? Even before decorative planners were “a thing” in the paper crafting world, I enjoyed keeping organized with a paper planner. I never went digital. I like to doodle and play with fonts, so I made ordinary planners my own over time.But now, look at all of the pretty things available at our fingertips to make our everyday lives just a little bit cuter. So I thought I would share what my planner pages look like before I begin the month. Over time I add little notes here and there, appointments, memories and to-do lists.Project Recipe: Simple Stories- Carpe Diem Collection: Planner, Epoxy Metal Clips, Washi Tape and Binder Rings Simple Stories- Domestic Bliss Collection: patterned paper, clear stickers, sticker sheets Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- EZ RunnerI love how the squares in the stickers sheets from…

What an absolute treat it was to have Els Van de Burgt from Elizabeth Craft Designs on our web show Technique Tasters #113 – Creating Backgrounds for Cards. Els is the owner of Elizabeth Craft Designs and has been creating, teaching and spreading the love of paper crafts for years. On today’s show Els pulled out a number of her very own products including cardstock, dies, stamps and adhesives. Along with Tim Holtz for Ranger oxide inks and Sakura Pigma Micron PN pens to create this beautiful card. Oxide Ink Effect The cool oxide water effect you see in the background is all the rage right now. It looks rather intimidating, however, as you watch the video you will discover that it is really rather simple to create and fool proof! The other cool fact about this technique is that NO two creations look the same. Products Used To create…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. We had a lot of celebrating going on in my family this year. Our oldest daughter has graduated from the University of Alberta. Creative Memories Cap and Gown Collection provides a lot of inspiration for layouts and cards. This collection also has a coordinating album – which I love.  Super quick and super easy.  In this layout I used the Variety Mat Pack to create a faux pocket page.  The only additional item I used was Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Creative Photo corners.  I adhered stickers on cardstock and fussy cut out the stickers and mounted them on foam squares to create some dimension.  You did it card I like the challenge of trying to create fun cards from Variety Mat Packs and stickers. I layered the 4×6 card on the 4.5×6.5 card and used stickers, Scrapbook Adhesives…
