12 X 12 Scrapbook Layouts


Hi all! It’s Noreen Smith here to share an unbe-leaf-ably easy layout idea using Creative Memories products! The lovey and intricate Unbe-Leaf-Able Recipe Template launched last spring and was such a hit that CM decided to create a coordinating paper pack and border punch to make it even easier to create a show-stopping layout! Normally you trace the shapes of the template onto paper and cut them out with Micro-Tip Scissors, but with this limited edition promo Unbe-Leaf-Able Border punch, all you have to do is punch a row of the pretty leaves, snip them apart and place them according to their location on the recipe template! Easy and fast! And of course you can use the pretty border on it’s own in lots of other layouts too! (And psst…while the recipe template is part of the main CM lineup of products, the limited edition promo Unbe-Leaf-Able Bundle is only…

Hi all! It’s Noreen Smith here with a layout featuring the Scrap Happy 2 collection from Creative Memories! As the name suggests, it is the ideal collection for documenting photos of all the fun you have while enjoying this wonderful hobby of ours! Back in 2018, CM released the original Scrap Happy collection with the signature CM icons and blue color, but this version is brighter and even more fun with the inclusion of purples, greens, yellows and oranges! It’s going to work so well with all your photos of scrapbooking crops, retreats and special events – in fact it was perfect to use with my photos from Creative Scrapbooker’s Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival last May! (Pssst…we had so much fun – you do not want to miss out on attending this year’s carnival! Head over to the link for all the info – CLICK HERE) Here are the easy…

Now, if this layout designed by Desiree Saskiw could speak it would say SUNSHINE and HAPPINESS! Am I right or am I right?What a beautiful bright happy design. Desiree built the background starting with a white piece of heavy white Super Stock and then started adding layers of different types of texture. One of the elements that really jumps out on this layout for me are the FOILS! They are all the rage right now and can be a bit overwhelming.  Whether you are just starting out OR are a seasoned “foiler” be sure to reach for Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. This fabulous medium allows you to add foils to your projects WITH or WITHOUT heat! Come again?!?!?!?!?! Love that versatility! Desiree used an alphabet script stencil, the Transfer Gel Duo  and Foil Transfer Sheets to create the beautiful shiny script you see in the background.…

Hey there! It’s Noreen Smith here to share a fun layout using all three colorful variations of the new Totally Tonal papers and stickers from Creative Memories! I love these new tonal collections and how they match perfectly with CM’s exclusive new mill-run cardstock! During each quarter of 2023, CM will offer tonal collections in three different colors, so you’ll want to purchase them throughout the year so you can use them with ALL the coordinating cardstock and other collections! I love being able to mix and match perfectly! For Quarter 1 (January through March) the three Totally Tonal collections feature the colors Baby Blue, Island Waters and Purple Ice! Each set is gorgeous on it’s own, but I had so much fun using all three colorways in my layout today! My family visited a spectacular indoor light display back in December called “Glow YYC”. Of course, there were lots…

A few days ago I posted a layout designed by Lori Domes of a gorgeous day at the ocean….well …. the reality in my world is this layout designed by Kerry Engel! Giggle Giggle!  Kerry’s limit is -20! You are a brave girl Kerry! Mine is maybe -10!!!!! I love looking at cold wintery weather from the comfort of my cozy, toasty house and that is about it! There is soooooooo much glorious texture on this layout – I wish you all could TOUCH IT!  To create the faux snow and grout effect Kerry used Ranger Texture paste.  Its  super thick and creamy to work with it. The results are ;wintery, chilly and FABULOUS! Kerry’s layout was  featured in the Winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Get your copy today! Stay warm my friends!

Happy New Year! Kim here with a quick layout share! It felt so good to ‘clean up’ Christmas within my house and get back to some routine. By the end of December I have had quite enough of too much food, too much shopping, too much wine, so many events, so many to-dos…this introvert needs to cocoon a bit in January! I managed to find some time to play in my craft room last night! YAH! One thing that has become a ‘thing’ for me is to gather all my Christmas cards and scrapbook/collage bits and parts of them into a layout. It’s a great way to hold on to the sentiments, photos and fun images of the cards from friends and family. It is also a great way to upcycle them into something that will bring us smiles for years to come. It is not in my nature to…

The winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine  is out and about on newsstands and at your favourite local scrapbooking stores! This issue we featured projects inspired by anything bricks! Here is one of the layouts we featured in this column designed by Kim Gowdy. Not only did we LOVE the photo of these two handsome fellas reading the Summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine (giggle giggle) we also LOVED the background that Kim created.
