Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp. I stamped it to the left side of a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. My sentiment was stamped separately and cut with a circle punch. I colored the image with my NEW Chameleon Fineliner Pens, I adore them! Like their big sisters, the Chameleon Pens, the Fineliners can provide tonal, colour transitions like magic! Think how beautiful your journals and planners can be! Here, however I have coloured my image using dots and lines – it is such a FUN way to colour smaller images! I’ve added a narrow strip of patterned paper to…

Hello! Kim here with some Llama Llove! I shared this little tag on our Instagram Story a few weeks back and thought  I could show you how easy it was to put together! Let’s Go! STEP BY STEP LLAMA LOVE TAG: Thanks for checking into the blog today, hope this project inspires you to try some masking! For more inspiration, get your hands on the latest, summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine!

Hi, Connie Nichol here this morning with a couple of projects that recycle sewing patterns.  If you’ve seen the Summer Issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, you’ll know I wrote a whole article on this topic.  Be sure to grab the magazine if you want a whole bunch of other ideas.   Among other things, the patterned tissue paper from old sewing patterns makes a great background for cards and scrapbook layouts. Here’s one of the cards I made.  Quick and simple and I think a perfect masculine birthday card.  Adhere a layer of a recycled sewing pattern to a piece of white cardstock using gel medium.  A gel medium is simply a binder without pigment that comes in various thicknesses, sheens, and transparencies.  I like the Dina Wakely matte gel medium from Ranger.   Just use a sponge brush or paint brush to apply gel medium to the base layer of cardstock…

Good “almost” Valentine’s Day to you all. Creating a message of love for someone that is dear to you takes that message to an entirely new level. Your message becomes a keepsake that your loved one will treasure for many years to come and possibly if your loved ones are like my husband …. it’ll be cherished forever! You can spend hours on a handmade card or you can use extraordinary products to make it look like you spent hours.  “Painting with glitter” is a simple, fun technique that always takes a card to the next level. You can do the whole card as a “glitter painting” OR you can simply add a glitter, painted embellishment. In the spring issue of “Canadian Scrapbooker” 2011 I shared this technique in my “It’s All About Rubber” article. Since then our publication has gone international and therefore the name of this wonderful magazine…

Hello, 2019 and a new year filled with opportunities and new beginnings! January is a month where we naturally think about new goals and what we want to achieve in the coming year. For me, I’d like to slow down in 2019. But what does that mean? I’ve had to think about the ways in which I can make that happen like device-free time, enjoying the outside more often and finding time to read. I love the process of evaluating goals so be sure to make time for yourself to do the same. Stampin’ Up! has a monthly subscription called Paper Pumpkin where you are sent everything you need to create a crafty project. These are great especially when you are going on vacation or the cabin. You can grab it and go! That’s exactly what I did while vacationing in Florida this Holiday Season. Below is a picture of…

Hello and good day! Kim here on the blog with another fun card using a fun stamp set from Art Impressions! You can never have enough birthday cards on hand, so that’s what I have to share today! Art Impressions has so many wonderful stamps; and although they have a gorgeous series of watercolor stamps, and animal characters, I am personally drawn to the cheeky humour of people stamps! They always seem to have the perfect quote to go along with the perfect image…and they ALWAYS make me laugh! Without further delay, let’s peek at the birthday card I made to share! It was such a fun card to make and actually quite quick to make. Here is a look at the process! My Color Box pigment inks from ClearSnap, my Chameleon pens and my circle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs all worked seamlessly together with the Art Impressions stamp…

Hello everyone! Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today, I thought I would share the Make-n-Take, from an event I did with Katharina in Chantilly, Virginia. First I will tell you this was an exceptional event. If you are a paper crafter of any kind you will want to be at their next event.  So many booths, vendors, door prizes, a huge crop and more. Creative Scrapbooker Magazine was there and we met so very many amazing paper crafters, made new friends and shared ideas. Here is the 10-minute make-n-take that the participants did in our booth. We had so much fun creating these speedy little tags, sharing ideas, laughing and giggling together. Once I got home, I took the same ideas and created more tags and a scrapbook page. Yes, I added embellishments from MultiCraft because “why not”, lol. This was a quick idea that…

“Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful.” Yes, please! Hello everyone, Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. When I saw this sentiment in the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Folded stamp set, I knew I wanted to include it in today’s project. Lately, it seems like that is an anthem in my little world. You want to have blue hair? Sure. You want to wear your Mario shirt and pants every day. Okay. Oh, you want to wear your pants inside out. Well, fine. The Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue was released on Friday introducing another wave of beautiful products. This stamp set along with others are set to help inspire you to create. That’s it. Just create. So, let’s do this.To create today’s project I had to first mix Prussian Blue Brusho with white Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste. Typically I take out some of the paste using a…

Hey there everyone! Cathie Allan here today sharing with you one of my articles from the Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – Creating Faux Mini-Canvases. I know you are going to LOVE IT! Faux Mini-Canvases by Cathie Allan In this issue, we are going to create “faux mini-canvases.” This special combination of background colours and the way we apply the ink layer after layer will totally have you thinking that we worked on canvas. In reality, we have simply worked on Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock—the cardstock of my inking and rubber stamping dreams. We are using pigment ink—the most light-fast stamping medium there is—so you will be able to enjoy them for a long, long time. I invite you to use the techniques we are stepping out for you today on your favourite craft project—a card, a scrapbook page, a knock-out art journal page or any crafting project…
