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…
