Hello “Sketchers”, Kerry Engel here, I wanted to say that I’ve been tickled by all the creative ‘takes’  posted in the  Sketchy Challenge gallery of each months sketchy challenge.August Sketch For those of you who enjoy when a sketch pushes all your creativity buttons, this month’s sketch should be right up your alley. 3-In-1 Challenge Once again, I’ve used the sketch to inspire you to create… 1. Scrapbook layout 2. Card 3. Journal Page As always, you can take the design literally or you can let it move you in a completely different direction.  If you are new to using sketches please know that they are merely meant to be sparks that help you get started on a project.

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Kim here with a layout share using products from Wild Whisper Designs, Ranger Inks, Southern Ridge Trading Company and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I loved the ‘Adventure Collection’ from Wild Whisper Designs from the moment I started to see layouts being created with it shared online. It is so well suited for outdoorsy photos! I paired the papers up with some bear photos I had from a few years back! I am really happy with the finished result! I designed and cut my title using my electronic cutting machine and was thrilled that by chance it lined up perfectly with the design of the paper I placed behind for contrast…giving it a bit more visual texture! My journaling was done using a Ranger Ink Dylusions paint pen – you should try them out if you haven’t…I LOVE them! My bear and tree elements are from Southern…

Hi everyone, Kim here today. I just finished working on a layout using October 2016, sketchy challenge. If my memory is good…that means I have used every sketch from 2016! Bring on 12 more for 2017! I LOVE them. Here is October’s sketch; my starting point. My completed layout below makes me smile, I love the Simple Stories product I used…It’s whimsical and sweet. My layout started like many of mine do, on a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Superstock. I love to build up from the basics and seem to be drawn to the contrast the white gives me when playing with other products! My first layer was created using a TCW stencil and Clearsnap’s Colorbox chalk inks. From there, I positioned my picture. I will usually just add adhesive to the center back of my photo leaving the edges free to slip embellishments under. I added several little…

Hi everyone, Karen Ellis here. I recently enjoyed a fantastic weekend away scrapping with my bestie.  I took the opportunity to create an effortless layout based on the November Sketch with some papers I received in a goodie bag from Fancy Pants Designs. Here is the layout I created. Here is the Nov sketch I based it on. When was the last time you used our Sketchy Challenge? It’s such a great place to start the creative process. Of course we’d LOVE for you to also share to our Sketchy Gallery, to inspire others! I hope you take a minute and check out the layouts there and on Instagram (csmscrapbooker – #csmsketchygallery).

Bo Bunny- Take A Hike – with Tracy McLennon Project Recipe: Bo Bunny  Take A Hike Collection patterned paper 6×6 pad buttons layered chipboard brads film sticker double dot cardstock Tombow Dual Brush 969 (Brown) Stamp Runner Adhesive Xtreme Adhesive Clearsnap ColorBox Spritzers- Pumpkin Pie, Grasshopper Chocolate ink May Arts Ribbon- Brown Mesh I LOVE working with fall colours! Who’s with me?? The warm earthy tones, that work with practically any type of photo. My layout today, focuses on one special photo. So I created a base of lots of layers of pattern and texture to showcase that special photo. Along the top border of patterned paper I added a line of coordinating decorative brads, for some additional texture. I added some simple splatters of my Clearsnap ColorBox Spritzers to the bottom left hand corner of my layered cardstock base. Do you LOVE to use ribbon on your layouts…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a Halloween project featuring the Happy Haunting Collection from Simple Stories and two stamp sets from Quietfire Design.  My oldest son went through the ‘ghoul’ phase when he was 9 and 10 – he wanted only to be a scary masked ghoul with a weapon.  The scarier looking the weapon, the better.  Sigh. Gone were the cute animal or super hero costumes. Here’s the Simple Stories mini-kit I used: This is such a great kit!  Six sheets of double sided patterned paper and a 6×12 sheet of cardstock stickers is the perfect size to create a handful of Halloween layouts and cards without being overwhelmed. Here’s the Quietfire Design stamp sets I used – there are 9 stamps in the Crows set and even more in the Halloween Wicked collection!  It’s nice to have so many stamps to choose from – big and little, crows facing right…
