8 1/2 x 11 layouts


It’s hard to believe its March. Time has been painfully slow but also incredibly fast. These days I am really trying to create every day. I’ve had to be very intentional with my time , often just squeezing in 15 minutes here or there throughout the day. Today’s project took over a week to finalize. I couldn’t find the right balance with any of these three layouts. I would leave them out on my desk hoping for something to jump out at me. Finally, I came across a navy blue piece of paper from Paige Evans Bugalow Lane collection in my stash. This piece of paper helped finish all three of these layouts. Sometimes just thumbing through your stash can spark some creativity. How fun are filters sometimes? This particular filter was supposed to create how you look as a Disney character. It happened to be prior to my baby…

This summer, my family and I went on an adventure to the town of Brigus in the province of Newfoundland. Like many coastal Newfoundland towns, its full of beauty and rich with quirks. Usually that translates to a lot of photos being taken. In the past when I sat down to scrapbook events where I took a lot of photos, I would get overwhelmed. Too many photos equals too big a job for this busy mom of three. However, recently I began tackling days and events like this by selecting my favourite photo and printing it oversized. Then using a pocket page or sometimes using a grid format on a traditional page to document the remaining photos. This small change helped me look at this “big project” to a nice and manageable project. In this layout, you can see that I selected an oversized photo of a tunnel showing my…

It’s finally here! It’s the sun! Yes! But also, Stampin’ Up! has released their new annual catalogue. This means that you will get to be inspired by new products and projects. To view and download a digital copy of the catalogue CLICK HERE! I am here to show you one of my favourite paper lines from the new catalogue called In Good Taste. This 24-page paper pack is filled with 12×12 patterns and prints that will co-ordinate with all your projects. Check it out! To create this scrapbook page, I began by flipping through the patterned paper pages. This time I looked for a couple contrasting patterns that complimented each other. Once I selected my two I decided to use the darker page as the background. I am a simple scrapbooker. I absolutely love repeating shapes and clean lines. Because I scrapbook in 8.5×11”, I cut the gray page at…

Hello everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Come Sail Away With Me collection by Stampin’ Up! I am so happy to be back here this month showing you what I love from Stampin’ Up! For the past couple months, I have been busy creating memories rather than documenting them. I’ve been adventuring from one coast to another and it’s time now for me to begin getting these stories told. Today, I was inspired by the Come Sail Away With Me Memories and More cards (Click Here) and corresponding Designer Series Paper. (CLICK HERE) It didn’t take long for me to capture the memories of me hiking to see the Heceta Lighthouse on the West Coast. “I don’t know why I didn’t ask any of the other ladies to join me but off I went to the Oregon Coastline to see the Pacific…
