Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here, and I’m so excited that Summer has actually arrived in the Northern hemisphere! To celebrate, Creative Memories has released a fantastic summer collection called Citrus Summer! It’s full of saturated summer colors and delicious patterns, images, and icons and I knew it would be just perfect to use with some photos of my boys and me at the water park from a few summers ago.   I love the look of a word-art cut-file, so I created one to share with all of you who visit the Creative Scrapbooker Blog!  The “Summer Fun!” cut-file is available for FREE in the shop on my own Blog, or on the Free Projects Tab of the Creative Scrapbooker website! Just download the zipped file to your computer and extract the cut-file image in JPG, PNG and SVG file formats. Then, follow the instructions for your electronic cutting machine…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog excited to share with you a fun little technique to make your stamped images POP with little or no effort using a white opaque pigment pen by Ranger. I am going to call this technique – white pen painting. LOL!  I am slightly addicted. To create this layout I used a variety of Stampers Anonymous stamps, Ranger products, Glue Dots Adhesives, MultiCraft Craft Decor burlap ribbon, and wooden embellishments. I challenged myself with this layout to see how many different ways I could use stamps. To be honest I only started using stamps a few years ago when I got into mixed media. This particular group of stamps really inspires me, and they work so well with my Europe photos. When all was said and done I used my stamps in 3 different ways. I used the following…

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little Spring-inspired butterfly layout to share featuring Pink & Main, Ranger, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Kelly Creates and Chameleon Color Tone Pens. Here are all of the nitty-gritty details. Start by cutting down the Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock cardstock to 11×11. Mat your 4×6 photo in white cardstock and add Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Black Creative Photo Corners. Using a blending tool and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick), create small blended circles diagonally across the 11×11 cardstock. Using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink again (Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron) and the Pink & Main silhouette butterfly image stamp, stamp 3 images around where your photo will be in the middle of the layout. Using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays, splatter colour across the layout diagonally. Let dry…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a super fun crossword puzzle inspired layout that I really enjoyed creating. For my daughter’s birthday, we created a goofy crossword puzzle full of questions that spotlight her at 21. It was fun to listen to everyone trying to guess the answers and find my spelling mistake. (It wouldn’t be a Kerry creation if it didn’t have a spelling mistake.) How to Create a Crossword Puzzle Inspired Layout To build the crossword I used this free website https://www.puzzle-maker.com/CW. I transferred the crossword to a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock using a sketch pen and my Silhouette Cameo. If you don’t have a cutting system you could easily print the crossword and adhere it to your layout. I used the March 2019 sketchy challenge for layout inspiration.-Be sure to join our monthly challenge. I would love to…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans ! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  Today I am sharing with you a pretty flower-themed project featuring the Botanical Garden collection by Carta Bella.  At the beginning of May, we went to the Tulip Festival in Abbotsford to check out all the amazing rows of different coloured and varieties of tulips.  So for today’s project, I created my scrapbook layout using inspiration from our May Sketch designed by Kerry Engel.

Hello and happy Tuesday! It is Jayme Loge here hoping all you Creative Scrapbookers are having a lovely morning with some signs of spring. Where I live, we’ve been buried under an endless ‘polar vortex’. While it has meant a lot of time indoors for scrapbooking I am totally craving some outdoor life! It was a good opportunity to tackle some of the photographs in my ‘to be scrapbooked’ folder. My usual process is to start with a photograph and find paper and embellishments to suit, but I had the lovely Wild Whisper Designs “Farmhouse”  paper pack that was just calling. I ended up choosing two pictures of my daughter, Avery, taken about 11 years apart! And both featured the great outdoors, so I could at least revel in the memory of it… I first scrapbooked the more recent picture. I like to wait until the school year is over…
