Hi everyone! Jodi Wilton here today to share with you a Holiday Layout I made using one of my favourite Dies from Spellbinders & The fun holiday Collection by Simple Stories: December Documented: I used this Spellbinders die set all the time to make banners in different styles; but today I wanted to share a layout using this die in a whole new way! Triangles are a hot new trend on layouts, so I decided to make a pattern with the medium sized pennant (it would work for any size if you wish!). I used the Basics Kit from the Simple Stories collection to create a pattern that ran the length of my page: Next I added some strips of paper, followed by some May Arts ribbon between the strips of paper and photos. I also used some May Arts ribbon as string for my chipboard ornaments. To…

We Were Framed, Honest! Last summer we picked up a big frame from the local thrift shop and drug it around to various places to use in photographs. This is one of our favourites of our daughter and nephew at the lake. SUPPLIES: Pink Paislee patterned paper, stickers and chipboard, Magenta Stamp, Clearsnap ink, The Crafter’s Workshop stencils, Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock, May Arts ribbon, white gel pen, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I used the Pink Paislee – Hey Kid collection For the background I used one of our my favourite stamps from Magenta To create the background, I sprayed Clearsnap’s smooch spritz through a couple of The Crafter’s Workshop templates, and then smeared the inky side of the template onto the paper. You can’t see the patterns, but it gave the mottled and messy effect I was looking for. I then used some Chalk ink on Magenta’s dotty…

Upcycling Pop Cans to Make Embossed “Tin Panels” by Christy Riopel I was inspired by old tin ceiling panels when I created this page. I love how they go with the vintage feel of the photo. Supplies: Fancy Pants Designs patterned paper and stickers, Spellbinder’s dies and embossing folders, gesso, Stephanie Barnard for Clearsnap ink sprays, Beacon Adhesives 3in1 glue and Decoupage gloss sealer, Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock, marvy gel pen. To make the panels I cut the top and bottom off a pop can and down the side. I then took my Spellbinders embossing folder and embossed the metal from the can. I then painted it with gesso and let it dry. I sprayed it with Stephanie Barnard for Clearsnap Ink sprays and when they were almost dry I sealed them with Beacon Adhesives spray on Decoupage Gloss Sealer. This keeps the colours vibrant.  I sanded some of…

Hello everyone – Kim Gowdy here on the blog today! I have a confession. I feel scrapbookers /card makers guilt because I was just NOT on the ball this year when it came to making Christmas cards. Not just making them, I couldn’t seem to get them mailed out either. Some years are just like that. For whatever reason; our time gets pulled away from us and used for other things. So I choose NOT to stress [too much] over this and thought I can still share homemade cards. This year I will send out homemade Thank You cards, for Christmas gifts received, and make a few Happy New Year cards to  those who REALLY should have gotten at least a store bought Christmas card! So I created this little card to send out after the holidays! Pretty simple card using 3 different stamps from Impression Obsession…how I love their…

Housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don’t do it. Author unknown Spring is my favourite time of the year. The weather warms up, the days get longer, snow begins to melt, and flowers bloom. However, with the brighter light and longer days I begin to notice things that I haven’t seen all winter, such as dust bunnies under the furniture, piles of discarded clothes in corners, and the list goes on. It motivates me to begin spring cleaning. While spring cleaning, look for some of these (and other) wonderful things that you can use on your scrapbooking projects: Styrofoam trays – for painting or handmade stamps Dryer sheets –for mixed media collage or for creating flowers Old kitchen tools – for making into pretty little presents or as stamps or as part of a mixed media project. Spray bottles –for mixing paint and as spritz bottles.…

Welcome to Part 8 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Kelly Klapstein is sharing her space. Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! It’s Kelly here today and it is my pleasure to invite you into my studio for a little tour. I do have a small room that I call my own where I scrapbook and write. I’ll be the first to admit that organizing is not my strength. Ha ha! Most of my studio has pieces and decor that have sentimental value, and I also have special treasures on display that make me happy. The most significant piece of furniture in my studio that really helps me stay organized is my Scrap Box. I love it! I bought it (well, I got it for Christmas) a year ago. Here is a close up of all the containers that I filled…

I love submission calls! Often when I am out of creative ideas, a page call is just the thing to spark ideas! For the Spring issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine (PICK YOURS UP TODAY) there is a fun loving article for Tye Dye you won’t want to miss! For the TIE DYE page call, my first thought was how to create the look using products I have. The more I thought of it the more I realized that TIE DYE was more than just a technique, it evoked a feeling. A feeling of free spirit, happy times, freedom and just “chilling” with your friends! So these cards evolved… For the TIE DYE technique I used Ranger Distress Ink Refills and Perfect Pearl Mists. I chose these inks because they are very reactive with water or water based products such as the Pearl Mists, which allow them to flow, move and…
