Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to show you a fun way to make quick, pretty watercolour backgrounds for cards and tags. SUPPLIES:  Ranger Distress Ink, Kelly Creates Sentiment Stamps, Black permanent ink pad, Stamping block, Watercolor paper, large paintbrush, water, trimmer, adhesive, card stock Step 1: Rub your ink pad across the top of the watercolor paper. Step 2: Add a lot of water to your large brush and ‘paint’ the ink downwards. Dip your brush into more water if needed. Step 3: Let dry completely Step 4: Stamp your sentiment. I chose black ink, but you could use different colors. Step 5: Adhere to a folded cardstock base. This simple technique has limitless watercolour combinations. Use one ink pad or two, or more! Stamp your sentiment for any special occasion or just inspirational words to brighten someone’s day. Breathe. Write. Relax. . Visit Kelly’s website for all…

Hey everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I had so much fun putting this project together for you this month. I was completely inspired by the new Stampin’ Up! Game On stamp set. My family are ‘gamers’ so I knew that this stamp set was going to be a huge hit in my world. While none of us play chest anymore, I couldn’t help but create with the chest pieces first. It was very evident to me that the background of this card should resemble a game board. The Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelits has a one-inch square that brings this idea to life. We do play Yahtzee and Monopoly, and well, many games with dice. It could work for any age group. I often struggle with using black in my cards are a dominant colour but the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder made…

Hello everyone! It’s Kerry Engel, here today to share with you an adorable card that is just begging to be touched. Between the embossing, stenciling and flocking this card is full of texture-therapy; for the maker and the receiver. Cards for any occasion are my favorite ones to keep in my stash. This cute little die-cut owl could be used on a multitude of occasions and I find his tummy is just the right size to hold a sentiment. My favourite trick when putting together more detailed die cut items is to use 3D Foam Squares under key areas. I used the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to raise my owl’s head up and away from his body. Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets cut like butter and emboss like a boss. To create this adorable Owl I used the Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer…

Hello and welcome to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Tuesday with the Team feature. I am Jayme Loge and I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! Starting with the Summer 2019 issue, the magazine is publishing a new ongoing article called “Planners Gonna Plan”, researched and written by yours truly. I’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of planners so I can share with readers and I am learning a lot of great organizational tips too! I was given the opportunity to play with some new American Crafts ‘Kelly Creates’ products. I love the marker sets! If you know me personally, you know what a funny thing that is for me to say. I have such a love/hate relationship with coloring; I do enjoy it and find it relaxing, but I don’t have the time to really invest in developing my craft and…

Happy Monday, my crafty friends! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with some fun ways to say Thank You, Teachers! It doesn’t take long for the days to turn to weeks and the weeks to turn to months. In the Caines household, we are planning our summer schedules with mini vacations and day camps. Already I am thinking ahead to teacher and music thank you gifts. Music is ending within the next couple weeks so I was thinking I might as well create the teacher gifts at the same time. I learned a little while ago that gift cards are just as good a gift as anything else but I wanted to add a little special touch to personalize them instead of just toss a card at them. Beginning with the Stampin’ Up! mini pizza boxes sizing at 3.5” squared and armed with the Label Me…
