The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a quick card using Viva Decor products, plain white cardstock, and a recycled dictionary page.  I had a pile of old dictionaries in my craft room to create projects for the next issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. I took a piece of white cardstock, die-cut a heart on the top 1/3 and then added dimension using an embossing folder. I then added colour to the embossed background with Viva Decor 3D stamp paint.  This is wonderful stuff.  You can stamp with it or use it as a paint to add rich colour and shimmer to your projects. After the purple, I dabbed on a little bit of silver stamp paint. I used Viva Decor Inka Gold, another beautiful shimmery product, to colour my die cut word. Then, I just tucked in a dictionary page with the word ‘anniversary’ under the heart-shaped opening, adhered the…

Hello Crafty Friends! It’s me, Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Sweater weather has already arrived and maybe you are here reading this blog with a warm cup of coffee but we all know that nothing can feel warmer than our “Home, Sweet Home” in this weather with little touches of The Robin’s Nest Dewdrops! I love Fall. The gorgeous colors of fall have always inspired me to incorporate those colors on my projects. So being inspired by those amazing colors, today I’ll be sharing with you, how I created this stunning faux wood mixed media wall-hanging home decor! Oh, that was a bit of a mouthful, lol! Step by step process: At first, I cut three strips of cardboard of the same length and width.

I like the look of tone-on-tone so using the same colour of Ranger Oxide Inks and the MultiCraft Forever in Time floral stamps I stamp a variety of flowers on top of the background. I always like to add in small details and doodles to my…
