Hi there! Nathalie DeSousa with you today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magzine blog to bring you a bit of inspiration using Vicki Boutin for American Crafts paper collection and mixed media products. We have been enjoying beautiful and rather warm days here in Toronto, and one of our favorite things to do on days like these is to go out for walks around our neighborhood.   So when I found the card with the title sentiment, I quickly pulled a picture of my mom and daughter enjoying their company while walking around.  SUPPlIES: American Crafts – Vicki Boutin – All the Good Things collection:   7×10 paper pad, cardstock stickers, watercolor stickers, glitter foam Thickers, rotary stamp American Crafts  – Vicki Boutin – Mixed Media collection:  Foundation paper,  gesso, watercolor set, art crayons (cool, warm, and neutral sets), iridescent glaze, Circle stamp and die set, water brushes American Crafts white textured cardstock…

Hello everyone, Kelly Klapstein from Kelly Creates here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. When I first picked up a brush pen 3 years ago and started to write with it, a calm came over me. That is what I love about hand lettering above all else…I feel centered and present. It’s just me and the tools I need to create on the table in front of me, and my practice becomes a meditative exercise. I have left technology behind. I am not looking at a screen. I feel tremendous joy and satisfaction in watching the ink flow on the paper in a myriad of colours. Even the simple black pen on white paper is incredibly satisfying and beautiful. That is what all art does for us, as well as crafts. When I scrapbook or make cards, or paint with watercolours, I am ‘in the moment’ feeling focused and…

Hello! Kim here with a quick layout sharing that was inspired by the Creative Scrapbooker February Sketchy Challenge. I did a very literal take on the sketch; but had so much fun doing it! This silly subject needed bold colours and contrast! Instead of using papers, my back ground was made using Dylusions paint and the Ranger gel plates. I started with piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, this 110lb card-stock can handle the mixed media product! The Ranger gel plates come in four very useable sizes! I took the small rectangle and masked off the area I didn’t want painted. I added my paints, spread with a brayer and made patterns with a Dina Wakey stamp and a Ranger texture tool. My swirls are done with an Art Foamie stamp and white acrylic paint! My bold title and hashtags are done with American Craft Thickers. My journaling was done with…

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here, and I have some special news for you….I made a couple of scrapbook pages! Since I started calligraphy, my scrapbooking has taken a backseat and I haven’t designed a layout in FOREVER. I tell you, it felt really good to be playing with paper again! For both layouts, I used the Vicki Boutin collection from American Crafts and my Deluxe Lettering kit. This kit is perfect for hand lettering projects because you have every tool you need: ruler, pencil, eraser, fineliners, black brush pens (fine, med, bold) and 3 colour large brush tip pens. There are a few simple steps to follow when adding your own lettering to your layouts. 1. Think of a title and write it out in different ways on scrap paper with a pencil. 2. Arrange your page elements onto the background paper and decide where and how your title…

Good Morning, Kim here with a quick sunflower layout share! This layout was very simple to put together using the papers and embellishments from a Vicki Boutin paper kit that was part of a Scrap Shotz kit from last fall [IF my memory is correct!] Sunflowers and photography make me smile, so it’s so important for me to combine the two whenever I can, where ever I can! I was excited to test out my new Deluxe Lettering Kit by Kelly Creates! I used the Black Fine Liners from the kit to do my journaling and add a dot border to the “be fearless” tag! I am not a lettering artist by any means! I am a scrapbooker, card maker and I dabble in mixed media…I can tell you that this lettering kit will be my go to for pens! They are juicy and wonderful…and come in sizes I will…
