Hi, it’s Connie Nichol here today with a layout inspired by the July sketch in the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge.  It was a great opportunity to play with some new Sizzix dies.  The Bird Crazy Framelits shown below are designed to match the Stampers Anonymous cling mount Bird Crazy stamps and they cut right up to the stamped image.  You can layer wings, beaks and eyes if you are so inclined, and have a lot of fun.  These little birdies are the cutest things ever!  I coloured in the stamped images with Chameleon pens.  Love being able to get a variety of shades of colour from one pen. For the background of the page, I used a 6×6 pad of Core’dinations Kraft-Core cardstock and used another new Sizzix die to cut out some really cool designs.  So many possiblities with these Sizzix thinlit dies…..   I cut the title out of Elmer’s…

Quick blog share today. This is not the first time I have been late with a Sketchy Challenge, but I always rise to the challenge sooner or later; sometimes I even redeem myself by getting them done “right out of the gate”! This would be the case with June’s sketch; that will be shared on another post! I love grids. They really are the core design element of most everything. When in doubt…think grid! Sue Sykes May Sketchy Challenge is all about the grid! I adapted the sketch for my layout to suit the size and number of pictures I used; I really love how it turned out. The Simple Stories “Good Day Sunshine” collection was the perfect product for this light-hearted page. From the collection I used patterned paper, stickers, chipboard embellishments, clear photo frames and enamel dots. Simple Stories makes it so easy to keep everything co-ordinated! …

Hello! Kim here to show you how to make some gorgeous watercolour style backgrounds for your stamped images. I will be using a Gel Printing Plate, Tombow markers, water and Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock. The Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock works best because it is so strong and can hold up to the amount of wet media used on this project. I am so NOT a video person, but thought it would be easier to show you this simple technique in video format. With the magic of my iPhone…here we go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq679RRuEQY&feature=youtu.be After making the backgrounds, let them dry completely, then they are ready for you to create with! I pulled out some of my favourite Magenta Stamps to make three different cards. For this style of card I love to use Versafine Onyx Black ink. It is a pigment ink that consistently produces crisp, stamped images. I coloured a few…

One of the best parts of going to a crop is getting to play with our friends’ supplies. Last March, on the first night of our weekend crop at Pigeon Lake, I spied this row of  Aladine Izinks Pigment Ink distributed by Clearsnap. That night I dreamed about Clearnsp Izinks all night. I literally dreamed about them. Dripping them actually! I was so excited to get my hands on the Izink pigment inks that I woke up before everyone else. I used Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock (CSS) as my base, and as I wasn’t sure how the Izink would drip I used gesso on my second page. The first page was naked. Newport Beach layout: Izink on Naked CSS I’m not really sure what verb best describes the action required to place Izink on your page. It’s not really a drop. It’s a mashup of a plop and a dab… it’s…

“Technique Taster’s” are a quick fun class that Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine offers at different events across the country. In 20 minutes we like toshare with you some of our very favourite ideas, tools, toys, stamps, ink, paint and more. The Technique Taster’s may be short in time but they are“tall” in inspiration.  For my part in the Technique Taster at Scrapfest in Kitchener (GOING ON RIGHT NOW) we will be creating one of these tags with in the Canadian Scrapbooker booth.      I know we will have tons of fun as we take Canadian Scrapbooker “white Super Stock” tag and turn it into a “tag to remember”, using the Cathie Allan, Position-It, pigment ink, masking and smearing techniques that are easy and fun. Those of you who have stamped “a while” and those of you who are just beginning to explore the “fun ink filled” world of stamping will…

Featuring Aladine Izink Pigment inks distributed by Clearsnap and Quietfire Design stamps Hello, Connie here impatiently waiting for the snow to melt, the mud to dry and the garden to grow. This layout was totally inspired by my stash of fake flowers.  I was trying to declutter my basement and gathered up all the artificial flowers that I have collected over the years.  Most of these were purchased from Dollarama or from the clearance aisle at Michaels and Walmart stores, but have largely turned into dust collectors since I rarely use flowers on layouts these days. Before I passed these posies on to their next home, I thought I would do one more layout with them for old time’s sake.  I started with a piece of Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock and made my own really simple customized paper by adding a rainbow of colour with Izink inks.   The Izinks are manufactured by Aladine…

Hi everyone! Karen Ellis here. If you know me, or my articles in the magazine, you’ll know that I love my Gelli Plate. I love creating one of a kind papers for my cards, collages and projects. It’s an incredible amount of fun to make your own designs and I love discovering new ways to make marks and uniquely designed prints. Recently I spent the weekend in the studio channeling my inner kindergarten student… creating texture tools out of some items I had laying around the shop.  Here are some examples of what I created and samples of the prints they made. 1. Buttons – glue buttons to some foam and stamp away!! 2. Elastic Bands (and a little Saran Wrap) – Wrap the elastics around a play rolling pin (I got mine at the dollar store). Tear off a bit of Saran Wrap and wrap that around the…

Happy Monday! Kim here with a quick card to share! I have been wanting to work with this paper collection from Heartfelt Creations for sometime now, but there always seems to be something else that needs to get done! Friday morning I put it on the top of my to-do list and am so happy I did. Creative time is so good for my soul! Celebrate the Journey collection also has some wonderful dies and stamps that play fabulously together! These are just a few! I chose to make my own background paper using Canadian Scrapbooker’s Superstock, Clearsnap Colorbox chalk & pigment inks and of course the wonderful stamp shown below! I matted the background with paper from the collection and began to build my card. I used the hot air balloon stamp to create my dimensional elements and layered May Arts ribbon &  pieces of patterned papers to get the look I wanted.…
