Tuesday with the Team

Category

Jayme Loge here, with some Tuesday with the Team inspiration! Summer holiday time has arrived, but going anywhere significant does not look likely this year for my family. We may take a few day trips within our province, but that is the extent of what we feel like we can plan. Lucky for me, I was on a trip of a lifetime last summer and have many great memories that need scrapbooking. If this is as close as I get to some travel, then I acknowledge that this is not too shabby an option! I picked up a bunch of items from Echo Park Paper Co.’s Scenic Route line. They were perfect for scrapbooking photos from my trip to the UK last summer. These layouts cover less than 24 hours of our almost 3 week trip; I think I will need to pick up some more. It’s been a delight…

Happy Tuesday With The Team! It’s Kim here today with a quick share. I look forward to Tuesdays on our blog to see what “my peeps” have been up to when they aren’t busy doing assignments, I’m always inspired! And THAT is just what I want to touch on today. I love that I am able to create and share for Creative Scrapbooker, and am thrilled if one of my projects has inspired one of your layouts or cards. What’s important to know…I also get inspired from so many people and places. It’s a wonderful feeling with the creative brain takes over and flows, but that is not always the case! Today’s layout share is not a “Kim Original”! I scraplifted this idea from IG: @scrappingwithchristine ~ her layout was shared on Creative Scrapboooker Magazine’s Instagram feed on May 28th. I loved it as soon as I saw it, and…

Hi Connie NIchol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring the new Wild Rose collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This company has such beautiful products and the wild rose collection is a great addition to anyone’s craft stash.  As usual, the collection includes coordinating paper, stamps, dies and dimensional shaping molds, with the wild roses coming in both small and large sizes.  This makes them super versatile because you can use the single flowers as I did below, or layer many sizes together to make a flower full of  dimension.  Heartfelt Creations papers go so well with pictures from my childhood.  This one is scanned from a 35 mm slide from 1963.  I remember the scratchy couch and my favourite stuffed bunny whose name was Teddy. You can create your roses and leaves by stamping with the cling mount stamps and colouring,  or I used the coordinating dies to cut them…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I had an afternoon of happy accidents recently when I was playing with Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. I ended up creating a card and a scrapbook page. I started with my MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap. I wanted to see if I could add the Flock Transfer Sheets to MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap using the Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. The Transfer Gel DUO works two ways; you can transfer flocking or foil using heat from a laminator OR pressure from a die-cutting machine. Transfer Gel DUO is a permanent transfer medium that dries clear and remains tacky for easy use. I spread the Transfer Gel DUO through stencils and laid a piece of the Flock Transfer Sheet on top and ran it through my die cut machine. A…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a couple of cards I created using Stampers Anonymous cling mounted stamps and wooden mat minis designed by Wendy Vecchi.   The front door stamp totally  captured my imagination – it’s so versatile!  You can make it any colour you want, you can stamp it on the  wooden mat minis to add dimension, you can decorate it with pots, flowers or anything else you can imagine to make your door welcoming.  I was totally feeling a red door decorated with assorted plants so I added some MultiCraft paint and stickers to bring my vision to life. Here’s the stamp set and the coordinating wood veneer mini mats.  They are lots of fun.   Add one flower pot or many to your front door. The pearlescent paint by Color Factory (a MultiCraft brand) is very pretty with a lovely shimmer and the Forever in Time  cactus stickers have…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with Heartfelt Creations. I love growing Calla Lilies and every year I have several blooming in my yard so of course I was instantly drawn to this Heartfelt Creations collection. Once I start making flowers I end up making a bouquet’s worth. They are addictive and so rewarding. The Heartfelt Creations, Calla Lily collection is made up of papers, stamps and dies that coordinate for easy, beautiful floral creativity. I did a little research on the colors of Calla lilies – to help me with my card making. According to the Proflowers website: White symbolizes purity and innocence. Yellow symbolizes gratitude. Pink symbolizes appreciation and romance. Purple symbolizes royalty and admiration. Black symbolizes elegance and mystery. Red symbolizes beauty and courage. ….Good info to know when you’re making cards! Here’s how I created my flowers: Using the…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! I’m Jayme Loge, a proud member of the Creative Scrapbooker team, and I’m delighted to share some layouts and cards I made with Simple Stories adorable spring and Easter line, Hip Hop Hooray! I had a lot of fun playing with these papers and was so happy to scrapbook 4 years’ worth of Easter and spring photos. You can watch my daughter grow and change with each layout. The first layout shows my preschool Avery hard at work coloring eggs. I wanted to add a bit of mess to my layout to echo what was going on at the kitchen table, so I added some pigment powder to my embossing paste (from Ranger) and applied some through a stencil (Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz) and some just smudged around. The Hip Hop Hooray stickers and Bits & Pieces are perfect for adding quick finishing touches- LOVE that! Next…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with two projects featuring the Sea Breeze collection from Heartfelt Creations.  Can’t you smell the salt air right now?  I had a lot of fun creating projects with this collection.   It is perfect for scrapbooking maritime-themed photographs or creating beautiful sea themed cards. Here’s the Sea Breeze paper collection – beautiful colours and graphics and there are several matching stamp and die sets that will complement the paper beautifully. An important part of my projects is scrap cardboard that I covered with white gesso.  It reminded me of the texture of the building next to the Cape Forchu lighthouse.  Just save a piece of cardboard from your recycling bin (this one has particularly fine corrugations) and cover with a coat of white gesso or acrylic paint.  Let dry and use as the base of your card or layout. I built the card using the Heartfelt Creations…

Happy Tuesday! It’s me, Kim [instagram], back on the blog today with a scrapbooking layout inspired by Stampers Anonymous Pressed Foliage stamp set and our September Sketchy Challenge. Autumn is hands down my favourite time of the year. I love the colours, the crisp air and the cozy clothes that are all part of the season. However, as I sit here typing up my blog post, my world has been blanketed in frozen, white crystals of snow..NOT my favourite season! *sigh* At least I have documented the loveliness of autumn and can enjoy the memories through my photos. This season will bless my world again in 2020! My layout started as a simple white piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. This smooth, bright white, 130lb weight card stock is the PERFECT foundation for cards and layouts. Your inks will fall in love with this product! I randomly stamped different leaf…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of cards featuring the One Hot Chick stamp set from Picket Fence Studios together with beautiful foiled backgrounds created with Therm O Web Deco Foil. Picket Fence Studios has some seriously cute stamp sets.  Be sure to go check them out.  One of the cutest is the One Hot Chick stamp set, which also happens to have a matching die set, making it easy to create a whole flock of chickens.  I stamped a whole bunch of birds and coloured them with Kelly Creates pens. The card backgrounds were created with Therm O Web Deco Foil Products.   A touch of foil makes any card look extra special!  The top ‘cluck it’ card uses a Foil-Mates card which has been pre-printed with foilable elements.  The ‘hot chick’ card uses Deco Foil Transfer Gel, a Stampers Anonymous stencil, and an old dictionary page.  I…
