Howdy! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here to share a Western themed layout featuring the new “Wide Open Places” Collection from Creative Memories! This collection will be amazing with photos from the farm or ranch, horse riding, road tripping through the “wild west” and so much more. I am particularly thrilled to have a collection that I can use to celebrate the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth – the Calgary Stampede! Being a born and raised Calgarian, I grew up attending the Stampede Parade, the Midway, Rodeo and Agricultural events  – not to mention hundreds of outdoor Pancake Breakfasts! I decided to use the collection with photos of the last Grandstand Show and Chuckwagon Races my husband and I attended back in 2019. Side note: although the Stampede was sidelined by Covid in 2020 and operated as a reduced event in 2021, it is back and better than ever for 2022…we are…

Hi there! Noreen here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com sharing a sweet baby scrapbook layout idea with you using Creative Memories newest addition – the Lullaby Lane Collection! Inspired by the cute one-piece jammies embellishments and images in the collection, I couldn’t resist creating a full page one-piece that acts as both a design element and a “frame” for photos of my youngest son Sam when he was just a tiny newborn! (Oh the memories working with these photos brought back!) Although my babies are teenagers now, I can’t help fall in love with each and every new baby collection that CM offers. This one is particularly lovely – the three Paper Packs feature a sophisticated color scheme that not only works for baby boy, girl and gender-neutral projects, but also for grown-up boy, girl and gender-neutral projects! LOVE it! There are also two gorgeous, foiled Albums, Fast2Fab Refill Pages, Stickers, Die-Cut Embellishments…

Size does matter, sometimes! There are times I want to create smaller than a 12×12. Not because it’s easier, because it works different creative muscles. I pulled out my planner from Elizabeth Craft Designs and used the July 2021 Sketchy Challenge as a starting point.When I work in the planner, I am always aware of what will ‘split’ down the center. Sometimes I will let photos or ephemera flow across the center if it doesn’t cut in an awkward place, i.e. splitting a person in half would not be good! Trust your brain…it will know right from wrong! Thanks for checking into my post! If you haven’t joined our Sketchy Challenge on Facebook, we welcome you! ~Kim

Hello! Kim here with a quick card share using the Heartfelt Creations Summer’s Garden collection. For my card, I have used some patterned paper and the 2 craft die sets, shown in the photo below. These dies cut images found within the collection or can be used with coordinating stamps! The background of my card is cut from one sheet of patterned paper, to which I added some Therm-O-Web Transfer Gel Duo through a ‘well loved’ Stampers Anonymous stencil! I let the gel dry, then ran it through my laminator to apply some shimmery deco foil details. While the Transfer Gel Duo was drying I readied my elements for the card. I made my 3D flower, securing the layers with little snippets of my Elizabeth Craft Designs’ double-sided adhesive. I coloured my wooden sentiment [unknown supplier] with Ranger’s Distress Oxide Ink, Crackling Campfire was the perfect colour for my paper!…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! It’s been a while since we shared a creative space! I always find we have a lull over the fall and winter months. The days are shorter and the light not as good for picture taking, this seems to lead to less submissions! It’s also a time that we get busy with our carnivals, holidays and our Big 12 Twelve Days of Christmas give-always! All these things affect what we may be sharing on our blog.  Over these months I have collected a few submissions and look forward to sharing some wonderful spaces! Today I am so happy to share Kim Henshaw’s creative space! A big HELLO from Kim Henshaw in Louisa, Virginia! Here are some photos of my scrapbook room.  For years, a few ladies would meet every month to scrapbook. I had an idea that needed approval from my husband, it meant adding a room! He…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with two cards featuring  the Art Impressions Succulents stamps and dies set.  These stamps are so pretty and succulents are so trendy right now! I stamped them with Ranger Archival Black Ink , coloured them with Chameleon pens. Next I cut them out with the coordinating dies and stuck everything together with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares are perfect for adding dimension to a row of succulents.  I put a coat of Glossy Accents on a few of the flowers to add some gloss and dimension and dabbed some Stickles glitter glue on some of the foliage.  Small details but it’s the little things that make cards extra special. The background patterned paper is from this wood and gingham basics paper pad from Simple Stories.  This paper pad is HUGE and has awesome colors and patterns. Thanks for…

Do you LOVE all the water-coloured paintings you see across the internet? If you shy away because you think it’s too hard, think again! As paper crafters we have so many tools already in our stash to quickly and easily achieve gorgeous, water-coloured art! For this adorable card I stamped my Impression Obsession pig stamp onto some water colour paper using Ranger Archival Ink. I like to use a light soft colour, this allows me to see all the lines but it’s not so stark to add too much contrast to my end project. Next, I used my Simon Hurley dye inks to colour the image. Tap your ink pad on a non-stick surface, spray with water and now you have have everything you need to paint. Spritz your stamped image with some water. This allows the colours picked up by your brush to flow onto the paper, creating that dreamy,…

Kim here with a quick mixed media tag share! Not too long ago I shared an Instagram story showing two tags I had made using Distress Oxide Sprays and my new Dylusions’ stencils. I had just received some happy mail that included some amazing new releases from Ranger and I couldn’t wait to play. The stencils were new, the Distress Oxides from my growing Oxide ink stash. The tags sat on my desk for a few days before I layered them up with some Dina and Dyan love! I used an image from the first Dina Wakley Media Collage Collective. Newer collectives  have been released this year and are equally as amazing! I used the stencil to add some words & hearts and finished off with some Dylusions Paint Pens to do some mark making. My second tag got layered up with a stenciled border and images from my new…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

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…
