Seriously! Have you tried foiling yet? I did! I LOVE it… Makes me think of changing the words to Kate Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” song…sing with me! I tried to foil… and I liked it! I think you should try it too, but we’ll let Kate stick to song writing! LOL! Check out these SIMPLE foiled cards! Now, I’ll share some eye candy and explain a bit of what’s going on in each photo. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for joining me on my foil initiation. It’s super fun and honestly easy! Give it a try and share your projects with us!

SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER! We have a long weekend ahead of us – YAHOO! We all grew up with our parents yelling at us to get outside in the summer. I did the same to my son when he chose Gameboy over gorgeous summer weather! Then along comes Jomelle Gomez with a craft room share; and honestly…you could lock me up in there and throw away the key…NEVER let me out! You are in for a treat! Hi! My name is Jomelle and this is my craft room.   I can just stay here all day long playing with all my planner goodies. I fell in love with the EZ View desk from The Original Scrapbox. It displays some of my favorite embellishments. I also wanted to display my planner collection. I love to decorate my desk and showcase the current collection that I am working on for my DT projects.…

Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a little liquid gold inspired layout to share with you. My layout is inspired by my husband’s love for craft beer. I don’t like beer myself, but what I do enjoy is exploring these fabulous local businesses and the art and design that goes into their craft.As soon as I set eyes on these fabulous stamps from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection….I knew I had to have them for just this reason. Even just as the stamp alone, don’t they look fabulous?I created my layered background and then did a few simple mixed media steps in order to frame the area where my matted photo would be. A little blending and splattering, and let dry. Then I stamped the beer mug and beer bottle onto the layout itself in black ink. This ends up simply as a…

Hey everyone! Kim here with a fun little product share! When we were at Creativation, with the Creative Scrapbooker Team, in January, we saw this neat flower making tool called Fablossom. This product was being demonstrated with fabric and my first thought was ‘I wonder if it would easily work with paper?”, a few steps down their booth they had the paper version! SWEET! The kit itself comes with everything you need to make plenty of different flowers, The instructions are very easy to follow, once you get a handle of the paper folding you are good to go! They include lots of all parts required to put the flower together, as well as a punch to create your own centers! I immediately thought of all the paper I have on hand at any given time and figured I can cut circles to make this work with my own product!…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today.  I never thought I would be a football mom, but my youngest son decided to play football when he was 14, so here I am.  I’m still learning about the game, but I’m now a proud football fan with a million football photos.  Fortunately, Simple Stories has a Football Collection kit with some beautiful themed patterned papers and stickers. Besides football, Simple Stories has other themed collections available, so if you are a baseball, basketball, soccer, cheer, or dance mom, be sure to check them out. I wanted a big football to embellish the layout, so I downloaded a free dingbat from a font called ‘Balls, Balls and More Balls’ and printed an extra large football onto a piece of white cardstock.  I cut it out and then adhered it with foam adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to give it some extra dimension. There is…

Hello everyone! Kim here, sharing a few of my favourite supplies! This was originally going to be a share of my take on the March Sketchy Challenge, a fantastic story line design with spots for lots of pictures! As you will soon see…I failed the sketch but love my finished layout! That is the joy of a sketch though, it can be a literal design to follow…or simply a starting place for your creative mind! So, I have this little obsession lately with all things Wild Whisper Design. Each and every one of their collections to date pulls me in…hook, line and sinker! I love the colours, the images, the quality and I admit to having a little Canadian pride for this small company! For my layout, I used their recent collection, Wild Whimsy! It was perfect for my sea turtle pictures and the mermaid, though so trendy right now,…

When I travel I like to document my thoughts, experiences and days in a journal. When I have a bit more time (or my husband needs a nap) I like to draw and record the colours and patterns around me too.  Kelly Klapstein’s new products were made for hand lettering but the minute I got my hands on them I knew they’d be great for using as a journal. Traveler’s journals are all the rage right now and Kelly’s journals and juicy pens are definitely going into my suitcase.   If you do a bit of prep before you leave you can have fun making water color backgrounds to add more interest to your documentation.   Here’s how I created my journal:  1]   I prepped my journal page by spreading gesso with an old hotel room key (a loyalty card would work too).  It doesn’t have to be smooth, actually a…

March, in like a lion, out like a…. LION???? I don’t remember being prepared for this scenario in grade school! Is anyone else, just “pooped” with winter? On this Good Friday, let’s think of REbirth, REnewal, REcharge, REst and REjoice! Let’s all happily move onto April and all things SPRING! Move along March…we’RE done with you! That’s a whole lot of “RE’s”!! [Definition of re- in English: re- PREFIX  /  1-once more; afresh; anew] Which leads us to this wonderful picture that Andrea Bjork, from Jamestown, NY, sent to us, sharing where she cREates! A room for Bible journaling seems perfect for this Easter weekend! We converted a small bedroom into my office and it has become quite a haven for me!  It is where I do all of my Bible Journaling.
