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. Scrapbook Layout Supplies: Paper House Productions Delish collection, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Creative Scrapbook Super Stock, Stabilo pen. 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. Be sure to stop by the Crafter’s Workshop blog for all the photo details. CLICK HERE.  The Great Canadian Scrapbook…

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…

Hi crafters, Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I have a fun DIY Tutorial on Journaling with your Sizzix dies.  Follow me through the process and try some of these fun techniques on your next project! Night Dreamer is my newest pages in my first art journal.  I know I keep saying how much I am enjoying journaling because it’s true! It all started with my pages I gessoed black.  At first this was a great idea, then I felt it was a bad idea… then I went with it and I was beyond happy with it. After the pages were painted all black I went back over with white gesso to create a hill effect and road Colouring with various Ranger green distress crayons for shading and lighting.  The sky has shades of blue and violet.The cityscape is inked with Ranger Distress Oxide ink and run through my Creative…

3-in-1 May Sketchy Challenge by Kerry Engel This month’s Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Challenge  is bubbling with fun. There are so many ways to interpret this design. My daughter was home from University one weekend studying economics and finance. Her weekend was basically summed up by the fun emojis in Simple Stories Emoji Love collection. It’s a great collection for telling stories without a lot of words.Supplies: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Simple Stories Emoji Love collection, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I wanna bring back “Sticker Cards”. (Not sure “Sticker Cards” was ever really a trend but they should have been because it’s quick and dirty). After spending a bit too much time figuring out where all those emoji’s should go on this page I decided to try whipping together a quick kid-friendly card from this same collection. I have been adding all the fun paper clips from Simple Stories as…

Being asked to join Jackie at Ranger’s CHA media release was pretty exciting until my alarm went off so early that morning. Tired eyes were soon open with excitement at all the fabulous new releases being shared at Ranger’s booth. They had four stations set up, and we got to spend about 20 minutes at each one with Ranger’s Signature Designers; Tim Holtz, Dina Wakley, Dyan Reaveley and Susan Lenart Kazmer…pretty easy to get just a tad star struck! Each proved to be down to earth and all had a wonderful sense of humour…made you love them that much more! First up was Tim Holtz. Lots of buzz at his table with the release of his Oxide Ink Pads, new Distress Crayons sets, Crayon Tin storage, 1 oz. size of Collage Medium, storage jars and Woodgrain Cardstock. The new Oxide Ink Pads are the next generation of Distress Inks, combining…

Here is a blog post from April 2012 that Christy created – in her words. She sure loved art journaling – and we sure loved what she created. I was recently asked, “Why should a scrapbooker take time to art journal?” The answer is simple. An art journal is a place to make mistakes, experiment with mediums, looks, and just play. Very often I take ideas I have developed in my art journal and turn them into Scrapbook pages. I took the above page and turned it into this layout. Materials Used: Fancy Pants paper and Rub Ons, Bazzill cardstock, ChromaColour Paint, Marvy Pen, 3L Adhesives How I did it…. To create this fun frame I first placed a scrap of paper in the middle of where I wanted my frame. Next I took paint and sponged it along the edges sporadically. When done sponging I lifted it and replaced…

Hi Everyone! It’s Lynn Shokoples here today to share a page in my Bible I made featuring the BoBunny Believe Collection. There is also a video tutorial to show how the page came together. I hope you enjoy! So let’s get started For this page I used the 12×12 Patterned Paper from the BoBunny Believe Collection called “Divine”.  On one side are fun elements to cut out, but on the flipside are fun black & white flowers . I cut a margin strip from the paper and some extra flowers. I added some color using my Prismacolor and Polychromo Pencil Crayons. For the background I took a Caran D’Ache NeoColor II crayon and used it for a watercolor effect. After it was dried, I used the new Transparent Gel from BoBunny to adhere the strip and the flowers to my bible! The Transparent Gel is a fabulous product. It’s not…
