Nicole Wright here today celebrating Canada’s 151st birthday!  I love Canada even more since today is also my husband’s birthday.  I always make sure he has a “CANADA DAY” theme card.  This year his card is extra special.  The paper used for the Maple Leaf and side red banners are 116 year old paper from his grandfather’s old book.  It’s ok, I have permission. I will be filming the HOW TO for this card with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine in a few days… while I am on vacation.  For now, check out this inspiration and get ready for this quick video. 1. I cut the Sizzix die cut Layered Leaf with the book page paper to create a Maple Leaf.    The side banners are cut with the same book page.  Each book page is inked with Ranger’s Distress Spray Ink Candied Apple.  To get that intensity I sprayed 2 times, drying…

Hello everyone – Karen Ellis here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with some pretty cool foil products from Therm O Web lately and I wanted to show you one of the cards birthday cards I’ve created using it. I wish photos did these foiled products more justice.  They are awesome!  The whole Gina K Designs line works so nicely together and each package comes with many sheets making it really easy for those who also like to mass produce or even coordinate invitations!  But, before I get too ahead of myself, let me show you how I created this particular card.

Hello Friday, so glad to see you again! Hey everyone, Kim Gowdy  here with a quick card share for you. I don’t know about you, but April and May have my calendar FULL of birthdays and anniversaries! As a paper crafter, people expect a homemade card and honestly, I feel a bit guilty if I don’t step up to the plate! These birthday cards were all made using Simple Stories Beautiful Collection. When I need to make lots of cards, I tend to put away my ink and stamps and pull out collections of papers and embellishments!Because the colours and patterns in a collection are designed to play well together, it’s EASY to layer paper, stickers, die cuts etc. Before you know it, a handful of cards…. DONE like dinner! [Maybe dinner didn’t get made because I was making cards…just sayin!]I made this first card simply by layering paper and…

Birthday Fishes Card by Kerry Engel A colleague at work was having a special birthday so I decided to make an extra large card that would accommodate numerous greeting from staff (it measured 6×12). I’ve been using my Ranger distress inks to make watercolor backgrounds for my hand lettering and thought it would make a great background for the fish stamps from Heartfelt Creations. I got a bit carried away making fish one Saturday night but it resulted in a very impressive shoal. According to Wikipedia “any group of fish that stay together for social reasons are shoaling and if the group is swimming in the same direction in a coordinated manner, they are schooling”. My fish were swimming in every direction and they looked really social so I’m going with shoal. When I was done I asked my husband, “now what do I do? How am I going to…

Hi everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today with a card I made for a special friend who is going through a difficult time battling breast cancer.  Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I would share this card with Canadian Scrapbooker readers. I pulled out my Close To My Heart watercolour supplies and pink cardstock and got busy! Did you know CTMH has all these wonderful products for you to indulge your inner artist? First I used a couple of the pink watercolours to paint the 3 heart balloons. After this dried, I outlined the balloons with a black permanent fine-tipped marker and also drew balloon string words. I wanted to add more pink colour to the plain white background so I brushed some wet watercolour pinks onto a piece of plastic and then pressed the card face down into it to pick up the paints. I like…
