Hey crafters… have you ever wanted to make your own stencils?  Nicole here on the blog today showing you how I saw a design I liked and then proceed to create stencils of my own.  Brother ScanNCut2 CM650W comes pre-loaded with so many designs for cutting anything you can think of.  I decided to see how cutting a stencil would work with my Mixed Media Art Journal.  I’ll show you what I learned.  I started by loading a small piece of Mylar I had in my scrap bin.  Adhere to the 12x 12 low tack mat and load into the machine.  Select Pattern, select the loaded design and then adjust your size of cut to the size of material you have cut.  I have selected the word Spring and 2 floral designs to cut. You can move your cut anywhere on your cutting mat.  The grid pattern helps you not waste…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart back on the blog today to share with you a fun art journal page. Summer has arrived and the inspiration for my project definitely came from all the bright colours that come with summer. The jumping off point for my project was the Small Patterns & Forever & Always collections from Wild Whisper Designs which combined with a variety of mediums and art journal from Ranger Ink, stencils from Stampers Anonymous, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, I was able to create my fun I Have an Entire Forest Art, Journal Page. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my page. For the background of my art journal pages, I put a base coat of White Gesso from Ranger Ink on the pages. With the gesso…

This week, in our regular #RememberingChristy segment, we are looking back to the Fall 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Christy Riopel was an avid art journaler. We could literally fill pages and pages of our magazine with her beautiful work. In the fall 2015 issue, she contributed one of her art journal pages to a feature we did on ‘The Joy of Journaling’.  This design would later become a staple in Chirsty’s art journaling classes. It was the first design she introduced her students to and can probably be found in everyone’s art journal who was lucky enough to have taken one of Christy’s classes. Here is Christy’s design. I hope you are able to find some time today to art journal or find a little you time! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel…

Hi everyone.  Karen Ellis here.   Today is my day on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you something that I’ve been working on.This weekend my mind, like so many of us, was on Hurricane Irma and the disaster she left  in her wake in the Caribbean and the state of Florida.  As a survivor of a natural disaster myself (lost my home in a F4 tornado), I know what it is like to lose everything (including friends and neighbours) and what it means to rebuild.  I know you all will join me in wishing the survivors the very best, a fast recovery and a quick rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Irma. While watching the news coverage, I took to my studio and opened to an unfinished page in my art journal and created this layout I’m sharing with you today.  I enjoy going to my journal when…

Some of you may think it’s silly to do a CSM Spotlight on Ranger Ink, after all ‘everyone’ knows who they are and what they do. While those of us who have been stamping, playing with mixed media or who have worked in the industry for some time, no doubt know who Ranger Ink is, we really do want to introduce these wonderful products to crafters of ALL levels! First up a little history. Ranger Ink was founded in 1929!!! I did the math…that’s 88 years in the INK industry…that’s a whole lot of homework backing their amazing products! Initially they manufactured commercial inks used in the banking industry. In 1979 they developed the first art stamp pads, and began doing private labels for stamp manufacturers in 1998. Since then they have grown to successfully market their own quality products that we have come to love! Products such as Distress…

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.

I’m always drawn to scrapbook paper with large photos and then I struggle…

Christy Riopel was problably most famous for her incredibly stunning art journals. Her ability to take a few white pieces of paper and turn them into a stunning work of art was truly a gift that amazed me. Journal Jump Offs A few years back Christy started a regular feature in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine called Journal Jump Off’s. In every other issue Christy taught an art journaling technique and then applied that technique to a scrapbook page or a card. Here is an example from the Spring 2016 issue of Creative ScrapbookerMagazine. In this issue Christy taught us the basic techniques for using stencils and Magenta Nuance powders while art journaling. The results are stunning. Christy always said her art journals were a place to play, to experiment with products and techniques and then apply what she discovered on your scrapbook layouts or cards. Even though Christy hated making cards…

Art journaling , for me, looks rather intimidating.  There are so many layers of goodness that I often have no idea where to start. Like this page from Consie Sindet for The Crafter’s Worshop that features stenciling. Stenciling I am constantly on the look out for easy to follow videos on art journaling that I can follow along and replicate. Through the years I have come to the conclusion that one of the easiest places to start is with stenciling.  Consie Sindet from The Crafter’s Workshop created the perfect video highlighting stenciling within her art journal that is super easy to follow along. Check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=67&v=qHEXupdZzXI Watch as Consie stencils her way from start to finish creating this beautiful page focusing on her collection of The Crafter’s Workshop stencils.

Hello, Nicole here and I am so excited to share my new journal pages using Stabilo.  I was sent a set of  Woody 3 in 1 pencils to create with.  These are new to me so I was very curious how they would handle my love of watercoloring.  They far surpassed my expectations!  They are smooth to put on these old pages, creamy enough to blend and don’t washout when watercoloring.  Check out my quick and easy tutorial for stamping and watercoloring with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.I prepared my old book pages with Ranger’s Clear Gesso.  Once dry I stamped the Garden Flower stamps randomly then started adding colour with the Stabilo Woody pencils.  You can easily move the colour around by smearing with your fingers.This is my first time so I wanted to try the pencils in different ways.  I tried blending and they blend beautifully.  Watercoloring…
