Hello, Connie Nichol here with a romantic layout just in time for Valentine’s Day.  I was cleaning up my craft room when I came across this photograph of my parents from about 28 years ago – they look so young and so happy. This layout came together very quickly.   I had a few pieces of patterned paper on my desk from a South African company called Penelope Dee.    I saw their products for the first time at Creativation last month in Phoenix and the designs are simply gorgeous.  This patterned paper was  SO perfect for this photo  and then I saw a scrapbook sketch designed by Laura Whitaker on Facebook.   Isn’t this a great sketch?  It certainly speeds up the scrapbooking process when somebody has done most of the design work for you! For the page title and for extra embellishments, I used two different sets of  the Way…

Its Karan Gerber here to host the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog and today, I am sharing a brick wall inspired layout with you.  This is my first time creating a layout on the blog, normally I do cards.  Today I wanted to share some of my mixed media tips using products from Art Anthology.   I am fortunate to be a member of their design team for this term and I wanted to share some tips with you.  I am also blending in stamps and dies along with some border dies from Heartfelt Creations. One of the things I love about the stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations is how versatile they are and you can use the flower dies on any project. On this layout I used a sheet of white cardstock, gave it a coat of gesso.  I then used a brick template from Want 2 Scrap and used texture paste…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am having some SERIOUS fun with my Tombow Dual Brush pens! While I was in Barcelona last spring we toured many of Antoni Guadi’s buildings.  I completely fell in love with Guadi’s work, especially his tiles and stain glass. They inspired many pages in my art journal and this layout. When I got home I knew I had to try a scrapbook page with the technique.  I used watercolour paper as my base, a good mixed media paper would work well too. I taped the paper to my surface with washi tape to keep any wild paint spots from migrating too far off the page. To create the tiles I drew random shapes with Tombow Dual Brush pens. My vision was to create a rainbow wave of colour. I started drawing the shapes in one corner of the…

Yoga Retreat A few years ago, when I had only a few yoga sessions under my belt, my novice self was invited to a yoga retreat in Canmore. I was in way over my head as everyone else had years of experience, but despite feeling overwhelmed all weekend, I had the most marvelous experience. I scrapbooked…

Adding sewing products to your scrapbooking and paper crafting creations is definitely a trendy rage right now. It is so easy to add a button here or there, add machine stitching OR simply add a mess of sewing thread! Yes you read the correctly!  A mess of sewing thread adhered to your layout is the perfect amount of layered texture without adding any bulk. I first saw this technique way back in the Spring 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, on one of Christy Riopel’s layouts, of course. She was cutting edge way back then. Love it! Spring 2015 Creative Scrapbooker Magazine In this issue, Christy wrote and designed, a feature article called “From My Grandmother’s Sewing Basket”. The article was all about pulling out your sewing baskets and using your supplies on your paper crafting projects.  The layouts in this feature are absolutely gorgeous and incorporate all things sewing…

“Double double, toil & trouble”…. Tim Hortons? Shakespeare?… No, Creative Memories. Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog having double the fun with two layouts and Creative Memories Toil & Trouble Collection. Feeling Punchy The colors in this collection are rich and yummy; teal and orange are so fun for fall. The coordinating cardstock is perfect for punching out embellishments or to use as a base. Creative Memories has some fabulous punches, the pumpkin one just makes me grin. The footprint punch was probably made with beach layouts in mind but  I punched out the foot prints on the bottom edge and then placed a black piece of paper behind the cut-out to create some creepy ghost like foot prints. Are you scared??? The fence and pumpkin punches layer nicely. How cute are teal pumpkins? To create more depth I inked all my edges in Ranger  vintage photo…

Full image graphic patterned papers, such as those from Paper House Productions are so stunning I am almost afraid to use them with my photographs.
