Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout and a couple of cards created with Echo Park Paper Co.’s Halloween Town collection.   I love scrapbooking photos from when my boys were little and cute.  Now, as teenagers, they don’t dress up and go trick or treating any longer and I miss it.  Ah well, at least I have memories.Here’s an image of the Halloween town collection – a great variety of Halloween colours and images – they are very versatile and very cute! Step by Step: I was in a triangular sort of mood, so I used a ruler and a pencil to quarter several sheets of patterned paper (just pencil a line from opposite corners and cut out your triangle).  I stitched around the edges of each quarter with my Brother sewing machine.  Machine stitching only takes a few minutes and it adds a nice touch to your…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a summer layout featuring digital cut files and a stamp from Quietfire Design.    A few years ago my boys decided to canoe (i.e. float) down the North Saskatchewan River.  They launched in Edmonton, and I was instructed to pick them up downstream in three hours time.  Unfortunately, the river was quite low and the current slow, and it took a lot longer than the predicted three hours.  Of course, my husband had no cell phone with him so I had no idea where the canoe was.  I waited and I waited and they finally showed up…… phew.  They have never repeated that particular adventure. I love the versatility of having an electronic die cutting machine.  It’s amazing.  Need a canoe to embellish a canoeing layout?  Presto, wave the magic wand and cut a canoe, paddles and water with your Sizzix Eclips 2.  Any…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a simple scrapbook layout featuring a beautiful patterned paper line from Creative Memories stamps and digital cut files from Quietfire Design cut with the Sizzix Eclips 2. and some stitching with the Brother Sewing Machine The scrapbooking process is a little different for everyone, but when I start with a Quietfire Design quote stamp, I am totally inspired by the quote and go from there.  I looked through my photos and found this one of my friend Jackie with a massive hydrangea bush from 2013 that I thought would do the quote justice.  Next, I selected the beautiful Creative Memories Watercolour Paper Pack and Watercolor Love Embellishments to form the basis of the layout.  The soft colours and patterns are just beautiful.  Although romantic, the papers work for a lot of other photographs too. Lastly, I considered how I might accent the page with…

Ah…..Connie Nichol here today.  There is nothing like sitting down with a crisp new issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and a cup of tea.   Especially in the summer when you are sitting outside in a lawn chair listening to the birds singing and the grass feels good under your bare feet.  I snapped this picture a couple of summers ago, and it still makes me smile when I look at it. To scrapbook this picture, I used products from Fancy Pants Designs Office Suite line.  It’s a very versatile paper line containing everything from soft pastels and delicate florals to bold black and white patterns.  It would work for everything from baby photos to travel or wedding photos. The Office Suite alphabet set is big and bold and makes a page title just pop.  This alphabet set  comes in the paper pack or you can buy it separately. You can also…
