Today we have Kerry Engel as our Guest Blogger, and she is sharing how she is using up her stash by making something new with something old! I have a confession. I find card making stressful. I’m a scrapbooker. I marvel at the beautiful cards that card-makers create. The meticulous stamping, perfect embossing and amazing colouring… I have trouble thinking without a photograph and yet, I still make cards. Mostly to use up my stash because …I have stash-guilt. I got on a card-roll earlier this summer when my daughter came downstairs and declared, “We are out of cards!” Buying cards just feels wrong when I can make them so I tend to go on a card-making-bender each summer. This year, my card-making-bender was made simpler by the addition of the Core’dinations ColorCore Polka Dot Pop card package. I need to confess two things. I love Kraft coloured paper and…

Today we welcome guest blogger Laurel Seabrook from British Columbia, who will share some of her designs using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Hi everyone, I am Laurel Seabrook and I have been on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L design team for a couple of months now. I am an avid paper crafter, I love making cards, scrapbooks and altered art. One thing that is common in all of them is that they need adhesive, and I love the assortment that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L offers. Today I have a couple of cards to share. I teach grade one and I like to give the students a handmade card on their birthday. The other day I used up my last card so I decided I had better get busy building up that stash. My normal style is very layered with lots of bits. However, grade ones are not the most careful…

Today we welcome guest blogger Krista Ritskes, who has some wonderful Close to My Heart projects to share! Hello Canadian Scrapbooker fans! My name is Krista Ritskes and I’ve been a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant since 2007. I’m excited for the chance to share my artwork and love of CTMH products here on the blog. I live in Oshawa, Ontario and am married to my Pharmacist hubby, Chris. We have 2 kids. Our daughter is thrilled to have just hit double digits and our son is 7. I discovered scrapbooking when my daughter was born and I had decided not to go back to my teaching job. When I was pregnant with my son, I found Close To My Heart and joined up, never having touched a stamp! Now, I can hardly create any sort of project without including ink and stamps. There are a lot of things…

Today on our blog we welcome Gabrielle Pollacco from Ontario, a talented scrapbooker and crafter who designs for Bo Bunny! Hi there! My name is Gabrielle Pollacco. I’ve been on the Bo Bunny design team for about 5 years now. Why would I stay on a design team for so long, you may ask? You just have to see their gorgeous papers and products to know the answer to that! Every new release brings beautiful collections that just speak to me. For example, a few days ago I received the three new mid-season releases. I had a full day’s work planned, but as soon as I started digging into the lovely papers and embellishments, I literally dropped all I was doing and got to playing with the new Boardwalk collection. I just fell in love with the weathered wood paper, and thought I would use that as the backdrop for my…

Today on our blog we welcome Michelle Marks, who is going to show you how she used our Sketchy Challenge to design cards! Happy Spring dear Canadian Scrapbooker readers…ummm…at least I’m hoping it’s spring somewhere in Canada by now because it sure hasn’t reached Nfld yet! Michelle here today from Corner Brook, Nfld. Apparently I’m supposed to tell you a little about me so here goes. I’m a 47 year old mom to two “almost” grown kids, a daughter 21 years old and a son 19 years old. I am also spoiled wife to Rob, and this summer we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary. Our home also houses a small zoo…one cat, one geriatric dog, two dwarf hamsters and some fish… plus a gazillion wild birds that empty my feeders faster than I can fill them. There’d be a lot more animals if my kids had their way but…

Today, we welcome guest blogger Alison Krogsgaard, who creates wonderful projects with Close To My Heart! Hello there! Wow, I am beyond excited to have the privilege and honor to share a bit about myself and Close to My Heart on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog! I am a thirty-something year old mom to 5 year old twins, happily living in Whitecourt, Alberta, and if you can imagine it, you’d think I was one of my children with all the squealing, dancing and overall giddiness I experienced when I received the invitation to be a guest blogger! For me, this is a huge honor! In addition to being a mom to busy twins (who also like to ‘scrapbook’ and ‘make cards’), I’m also a stay at home mom, and most recently a Close to My Heart consultant. Deep down, I had secretly always thought selling paper crafting supplies would be awesome (and…

A huge hello to everyone out there in the paper crafting world! I was absolutely delighted to be invited as a guest blogger, featuring Magenta Style products. A little about me: I live in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, a mom of 20 yr old twins (girl & boy), married for nearly 23 years, a Registered Nurse going on 29 years and yes, I am addicted to anything and everything in the paper crafting world! I’ve been crafty throughout my entire life in one way or another but was not introduced to scrapbooking until 2006. It took one home party to get me craving for more. Scrapbooking turned into card making which turned into mix media, home décor, etc, etc. I am not a routine person, and I tend to get bored easily so paper crafting for me is the PERFECT right brain activity. The moment I find myself “bored” I switch…
