These week we are looking back to our Spring 2013 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – Christy wrote and designed a featured article called – Freshen Up for Spring. Here it is as seen in the magazine. Timeless creations just for you this Easter season – from our beautiful friend Christy – whom we miss every single day. Creative Scrapbooker Magazine is honoured to announce that we have started an ART Scholarship in Christy’s name.

Ghoultide Greetings Mixed Media Wall Hanging By Katelyn Grosart Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! With Halloween right around the corner I thought that it would be fun to share with you how to create a mixed media wall hanging piece as a perfect home décor addition to any spot in your home. Using stamps, charms and embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and pairing them with Ranger Ink products, I was able to create a fun piece. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I have a tutorial for you, so that you can recreate it in the comforts of your own home. To start, you’ll need a 5 ½” x 5 ½” wood piece. I managed to pick one up that was already meant to be used as a wall hanging. Once you have your piece in front of you, you’ll need to apply 2…

Sweet & Spooky Halloween Layouts by Karla Yungwirth Hi there crafty friends! Karla here today from Creative Love Affair, and I am so so super excited to be a Guest Designer today for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! It is an amazing honor! Today, I’m sharing some Halloween photos I’ve scrapbooked from a few years ago using the Bo Bunny Wonderfully Wicked Collection. It definitely is wonderful and spooky, and so fun to play with! These pictures were taken when my now 9 year old daughter, Amie, was 4 – and this year, before we even looked at these pics, my now 4 year old, Erica, decided to wear this exact costume – which her cousin had worn when she was this age! Now, to find those photos! That’s one of the reasons I love scrapbooking – looking through older pictures, remembering, and getting family talking about what they remember.…

Today I am sharing some items I made using the new Jeepers Creepers paper packet from Close To My Heart! I happened to have recently purchased a pencil that came in a little test tube style container from Staples, an office supply store.  Part of the proceeds from these pencils go towards “Me To We” (formerly known as Free The Children), which was a program my son got involved in a couple of years ago through the middle school he was attending at the time. Anyways, back to a closer look at my little project… Cute, right?  The test tube could be filled with little candies, too.  And don’t you just love the little bats?  I cut them out using Black Glitter Paper and the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, both from Close To My Heart.  For the test tube holder, I found instructions to make it here at Splitcoaststampers:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/testtubeholder/ The…

Happy first day of Fall!  Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I’m excited to share my most favorite time of year… Fall! I just got all my Sizzix dies to play with and I went for the Dashing Deer first knowing I was somehow going to create a fall project.  Well I usually have some idea of what I may create.  This one needed lots of leaves and burlap. Onto the fun! I decided to layer up the antlers with the mat board cut 2 times and a layer of Sizzix Leather Paper.  I cut the head and upper body with some scrap Core paper.  For the leaves I made my own paper using watercolor paper. I grabbed my Ranger Distress Spray Stains peeled paint, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.  Spritz and spray.  Apply matching distress inks to intensify the colour. Now that the paper is dry I can cut…
