LOL! Yes, I do!!!!! Pure happiness! Check out Tracy McLennon’s layout featuring Simple Stories. Not only do I love a well-stocked craft room, but I also LOVE it when fellow scrapbookers take the time to document the room that they spend so much time in. At first glance, you may think it silly, but it is a very large part of what we do and who we are. Where we spend hours telling our stories, documenting our history, learning, creating and simply being who we are. Take a moment in 2019 and scrapbook your space. Tell the story of how it began, your favourite moments, and your scrapbooking journey. It is a part of you and therefore it is PERFECT! Your family will love it! Tracy put together her layout using the Simple Stories Crafty Girl collection. To see more of Tracy’s work visit her blog – Scrappy Chick Designs…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m excited to be back on the blog today sharing with you my last post of the year and to end the year, I’ve created a Christmas themed scrapbook layout. To kick-start the idea for my layout, I used our December Sketch which was designed by Kerry Engel. With the sketch in hand, I set off to create my Christmas Memories Scrapbook Layout which features the Christmas Collection from Carta Bella  Ink from Ranger Ink and adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite holiday beverage as I share with you how I created my layout at home. In the bottom right side of the circle, I layered in elements out of the Christmas Ephemera, Frames & Tags and the Paper Pack from Carta Bella. The photo is cut down to 3 ½” x 3 ½”. To finish off the…

Hi, there everyone, Nathalie DeSousa with you today with a very fun and colorful Christmas layout that celebrates those Sweet Good Times the season brings. For today’s post,  I wanted to work with lots of colors to document a picture of my kids building their gingerbread house.  So, I pulled my Vicki Boutin mixed media products and started working on the background for this page. It all started with a foundation paper that had been gessoed;   I played with some Vicki Boutin Art crayons to create the watercolor background on the page.  The color combination was inspired by the mints that are slowly showing around our house lately. While the background dried, all the gingerbread houses were cut from Caramel colored cardstock using a cut file from Handipaper, and then backed with white mixed media paper.   In addition, the small mints that surround the cutouts were created by stamping the circles…

Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here. Today I have a beautifully festive layout to share using the new Simple Vintage Christmas Collection from Simple Stories. I adore everything about this collection. The classic Christmas palette, the vintage imagery and the sheer selection of fabulous coordinating embellishments. This collection has so much crafty potential for all sorts of your holiday crafting and scrapbooking. I love to create with lots of layers, texture, and dimension. So each of these bits, pieces, and patterned layers have dimension thanks to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares, Thin 3D Foam Squares, and Crafty Foam Tape. You’ll also find the coordinating washi tape here and there adding pops of colour. Some finishing touches include gold glitter enamel dots and ivory buttons. A few more coordinating bits and pieces die cuts around the matted photo and embellishments clusters so perfectly accent that super cute photo of…

Here are all of the nitty-gritty details. First create your layered cardstock background. The kraft cardstock is 10.75×10.75 and matted in white cardstock that is 11×11.

This weekend I pulled out a paper stack from Paper House Productions – Field Study – and scrapbooked a few photos from harvest 2016. I thoroughly enjoy paper stacks. They are easy to store, tons of coordinating papers and with Paper House Productions, they also include a sticker sheet that is also sealed in the binding. I love that! Here is a very simple layout that I created. A little fun element on my layout is the birch stencil in the background. I laid the stencil down and applied transparent texture paste.  When the texture pasted dried I wasn’t happy with the slight watermark color. So I painted it black.  Definitely, an easier way to get this texture is to simply add the black paint to the texture paste! Save a tedious painting step! Next time (LOL) SUPPLIES Paper House Productions Patterned Paper Paper House Productions Stickers and Washi Tape Ranger…

Check out this gorgeous layout Kerry Engel designed. From the wintery photos to the acetate snowflakes to the texture paste background – I seriously feel the crisp fresh air of a beautiful winter day just looking at this creation! One of the things I particularly love on Kerry’s layout is the photo of the footsteps walking away in the snow. What a great angle! Here are the supplies Kerry used to put together her layout.
