I LOVE working with fall colours! Who’s with me?? SUPPLIES: Bo Bunny patterned paper, buttons, chipboard, brads, film sticker and cardstock, Tombow Dual Brush pen, Stamp Runner and Xtreme Adhesive, Clearsnap ColorBox Spritzers and ink, May Arts Ribbon I used the Bo Bunny Take a Hike collection. The warm earthy tones, that work with practically any type of photo. My layout today, focuses on one special photo. So I created a base of lots of layers of pattern and texture to showcase that special photo. Along the top border of patterned paper I added a line of coordinating decorative brads, for some additional texture. I added some simple splatters of my Clearsnap ColorBox Spritzers to the bottom left hand corner of my layered cardstock base. Do you LOVE to use ribbon on your layouts like me? You need to check out Tombow’s new Xtreme Adhesive Runner, this stuff will stick to…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a fall layout featuring some gorgeous Momenta textured cardstock that has a dreamy water colour look. The cardstock comes in an 8×8 paper pad with three sheets of each design.  The colours will go with almost everything. I put two of the 8×8 cardstock sheets in opposite corners on a sheet of 12×12 cardstock and then filled in the corners with some shimmery Art-C paint and a self adhesive stencil.  Because hey, who doesn’t like to play with shimmery paint?  This stuff is gorgeous.  And the colour stops my heart. I filled in what was left of the gap between the stenciled paint and the cardstock with a piece of May Arts gingham ribbon, and then mounted my photograph.  (P.S. By the way, especially for Canadians, I had this 8×8 photo enlargement printed at www.blacks.ca for 99 cents on a sale last month.  I am super…

Hello everyone – Jayme Loge here with Tuesday with the Team! My kid is a bookworm, and when I saw Bo Bunny’s Beautiful Dreamer paper line, I knew it was meant just for her! Not only do I love the colour scheme, the book and imaginative images are wonderful. I paired the paper with Creative Scrapbooker’s October 2016 sketch: I am currently having a very serious love affair with the Ranger Dylusions paints and so decided to use them to create the background shapes on my layout. I laid down my stencil and applied the paint with a paper towel, ‘ishing’ the circle shape. I used three colors that coordinated with the paper. I added a little of the green around the edges of the paper and lightly smooshed throughout the background for just a bit more texture. Once the paint was dry, I built my layout on top. One…

It’s that time of year again — time for my annual trip to IKEA to get dorm appropriate stuff for “the kid”….  And, if I’m perfectly honest, it becomes more in an inspiration station for me! Wondering around the store I came across a little bin with some paper frames shaped as buildings in them.   The GLON set was meant to be coloured with markers…  but I had other plans for them!!  …and I dug out “the kid’s” grade 12 picture to show you!

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout that features Graphic 45 patterned paper from the Enchanted Forest line and the Dream die manufactured by Elizabeth Crafts Designs and designed by Quietfire Designs. This was a very simple layout to create.  I just layered different pieces of Graphic 45 patterned paper from the 6×6 and 8×8 Enchanted Forest paper pads, putting some of the smaller pieces on with dimensional foam adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and embellishing with machine stitching and bits of May Arts ribbon.  The page title is a die manufactured by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Perfect for a page about a boy and his books.   The beautiful calligraphic word dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs inspire me to create many layouts. I also added a couple of butterflies cut with the Sizzix Eclips 2 using from Quietfire Designs Butterfly Heart Card cutting file shown below.  The file is…

Hey everyone, hope your summer has been great to date. I have a quick share today, a card I made, inspired by the June Sketchy Challenge. As I often do, I rotated the sketch. Just by rotating or mirroring a sketch, you can have so many different layouts from the same starting point…give it a go! My desk was too messy to take on a full page layout, yet somehow this card took as much time to figure out! I used cardstock, stamps, ink, markers and dies from Stampin’ Up. If you weren’t aware, their quality dies are made by Sizzix, so they can be used for years and years to come! Everything is held together by various types of Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L products. I used their tape runner, foam squares, photo corners and Dual Tip Glue Pen. Thanks for joining me on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.…

Stamping with your Dies by Cathie Allan Mediums and tools that multi-task always have a special place in my creative heart. I totally enjoy looking at my creative tools, toys and mediums from various sides to see what I can get them to do for me other than the “intended use” suggested by the manufacturer. For this blog post I decided to play with the “Heart Clasp Die” from Art Impressions. This die makes a lovely wrap for a card but by joining two of these dies I was able to wrap my scrapbook page and then of course wrapped my photo. I then took this die a “stamp step” forward by applying ink to the backside of the die I thus was able to use it as a stamp. Look at that die “go”!! To begin I made the Art Impressions, “Heart Clasp Die” perform as a stamp. Apply…

Using Layered Stencils from Elizabeth Craft Designs Hello everyone – Christy Riopel here! I am really enjoying playing with the Elizabeth Craft Designs new layered stencils. It lets you create two coloured patterns with ease! Supplies: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies, Stencils and Paper, Clearsnap Dye Ink, Liquitex paint, Tombow Mono Multi liquidglue, thrift store scrabble tiles, Sakura Pens Here are the Elizabeth Craft Designs  supplies I used. Step1: using an ink applicator like this Clearsnap stylus with a foam tip, apply red inks to the cherry part of the stencil. Step 2: layer the stem part of the stencil over top so each stem aligns with a pair of cherries. You can easily see through the stencil to do this. Step 3: using green inks sponge the ink over the stem parts of the stencil This gives you a two colour finished image when you lift off…

Graphic 45 is known for their unique vintage style, with bold deco patterns. You might think that you could only use vintage photos to create heritage layouts, but that is just not true. Today I am sharing a layout that I created using 2 recent photos of our daughter Zoe. This collection is beautiful and can be for any type of photo you choose. Zoe has just graduated high school and is heading to university in Montreal in the fall. Where has the time gone? These photos, taken by a a photographer friend of hers, show more than ever just how grown up, beautiful and independent she has become. We are so proud of her. This collection from Graphic 45 suits that sentiment perfectly.
