Hello everyone! Kim here with a spotlight on Echo Park Paper Co.! I love being able to share my love of great companies with you here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s blog! Let’s do this! What you may not know is that Echo Park was founded in 2010. I was a bit surprised to learn that they are still a relatively new company, I feel that they have been around forever! That is a sign that they are doing it right! It’s a sign that they are providing quality products year after year and staying on top of the industry trends! Echo Park’s goal is simple – create easy to use crafting products while incorporating fun designs and bright colours! NAILED IT!!! Although this fun company started out creating papers, they have quickly expanded to albums, dies, stamps and stencils. There current catalogue features over 2000 products! I recently found…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans – Katelyn Grosart here today! I hope that you’re having a fabulous Summer so far. Dream Card Using the Serendipity Collection from BoBunny, some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs as well as a few products from Ranger Ink, I was able to create my Dream card. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I show you how to recreate this card in the comforts of your own home. Building the Card From the Serendipity paper by BoBunny, cut a piece that measures 4 1/4” x 6 1/4”. Using the 3” Stitched Rectangle die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, cut a stitched rectangle from the same piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of both pieces of papers using an edge distressor. Ink the edges of the patterned paper pieces using a blending with foam and Vintage…

Hello everyone – Vicki Wizniuk here! Today I am sharing a few cards I created using the new Prickly Pear papers from Close to My Heart! I love the fresh and funky colour palette in this pack. For my first card, I paired the Prickly Pear papers with the Prickly Pear Cardmaking stamp set.  I love that these new stamp sets have matching Thin Cuts dies, making creating even that much easier! To add colour the stamped and die-cut cactus, I used my inks and small waterbrush to simply paint the colours on. Tip:  I like to use Black Memento ink to stamp the image, as it dries quickly and it doesn’t “bleed” when I use my waterbrush to add the colours. I added a few sequins from the Prickly Pear Sequins pack.  I love how easily you can combine everything just by going by the name of the product…

HELLO SUMMER! Hey everyone, – Cathie Allan here – thought I would share with you a totally fun and easy card that you can create in the wee hours of the morning. Why? … in the “wee hours of the morning?” ….. well, because, it is May 23rd and it is behaving like summer outside so we NEED to spend “some” of our “crafting time” in our gardens and on our deck.   I used totally “doable” stamping techniques to  create a fun, shape card that “wanted to be a slider card”.  The background was simply stamped using a wonderful solid, daisy stamp from Impression Obsession and two fabulous pigment colors from Clearsnap. Since it was pigment ink, I was able to stamp the darker, Antique Pewter images first and then stamp the lighter, Buttercup images on top of the dark color.  Pigment ink allows me to do this and I…
