The Brother ScanNCut is still one of the most talked about electronic cutting machines in the industry. The excitement is about the NEW ScanNCut 2, which was released in the United States in the Fall and will be released in Canada in the next few months. Some of the new features of the ScanNCut 2 include: a 300 DPI scanner has RGB recognition so you can create your own cut files 12″ x 24″ scanning a wireless network ready to transfer files online Stand-Alone machine library of over 1000 cut files plus 15 built in fonts SVG data and PES data readability (for embroidery) German Carbide blade The demo table was always busy, and even I tried out a little hand lettering, scanning and cutting!

Hi, it’s Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout I created using the November sketch from the Canadian Scrapbooker sketchy challenge  and some of the new Creative Memories products.    A couple of years ago I participated in a hummingbird photography workshop in British Columbia.   It was an absolutely amazing experience and I have enough hummingbird photographs to last me several lifetimes. I used patterned paper from the Creative Memories ‘Brights’ designer paper pack and the Bubbles Border Maker to dress up my paper edges a little bit.  The Creative Memories Border Maker System is very unique – you slide your paper into a positioning guide where it is firmly held by a magnet and then you move a punch cartridge stepwise down the paper edge.  The cartridges are interchangeable so you can easily swap out different cartridges for different borders. To make my picture pop, I used dimensional foam adhesive…

In Canada, November 11 is Remembrance Day.  It is a statutory holiday in most provinces and territories in order to commemorate members of the armed forces and to remember and honour those who have fought for our country and our freedom.  It’s about respecting our past and thanking those that have served.    I grow many poppies in my garden and they always make me think of the iconic war poem ‘In Flanders Field’ by John McRae. To add some subtle texture and interest to the piece of Bo Bunny Heritage patterned paper, I used a Bo Bunny stickable stencil and smeared a little molding paste through it with my finger.  I adore the way these stencils stick, even after repeated washings, so the molding paste ends up where it is supposed to.  All the time.   It can’t sneak under the stencil and make a mess.   Then, I sprayed a…

Hi, Connie here today. This layout was inspired by the February sketch in the Canadian Scrapbooker It’s a Sketchy Challenge and the new Kaisercraft Shine Bright collection. The latter turned up in my mailbox as part of the latest Scrap Shotz monthly kit and the colours were so striking – bright yellow and black and gray – perfect for some older soccer photos in my collection. I knew I wanted to create a soccer ball to use as the circular element suggested by the February sketch and quickly realized that my Sizzix Eclips2 electronic die cutting machine could make that soccer ball an easy thing. I simply googled ‘soccer svg’ and found a lovely free soccer ball cut file on the internet.   I imported the file into Ecal (the software used with the Eclips2) sized it appropriately and then cut it out on a couple of different colours…

Graphic 45 has a brand new collection that features images that are perfect for us that love to cook, garden and farm. When I saw the paper and saw pictures of seed packets with carrots and peas, I went weak at the knees. I have a lot of gardening pictures! The colours are rich and vibrant and so fun to work with. You can buy this collection in individual 12×12 sheets or in three different sizes of paper pads. Graphic 45 has also designed matching chipboard, stickers and stamps. Look for it at your favourite scrapbooking stores – it should be arriving any day. I used the January 2015 sketch from the Canadian Scrapbooker sketchy gallery as inspiration and created this layout. I like scrapbooking summer pictures in the depths of January. It makes me hopeful that winter might end someday soon. Think happy summer thoughts! Then, when I had…

Hello everyone!  Today is my turn to share some scrap happiness with you.  As usual, the weather was cold and snowy last weekend, so I sat down with the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge for February and came up with this layout: Here is Sue Sykes’ February 2015 sketch: This is the first winter in a very, very long time….since my kids were little and playing outdoors a lot…that I have gone outside.  And it’s all because of our pup Finn, who is fanatical about snow and is always too hot inside.  Finn takes me on walks at least twice a day, every single day.  I still can’t believe it myself! I’m even enjoying it. I just LOVE the colours in this year’s winter collection from BoBunny.  Altitude has fabulous patterns and stickers! I cut the title from a piece of patterned paper and made it into a banner: My journaling is…
