Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a layout share full of warm, tropical vibes! I am just back from a weekend retreat with some of my favourite people. We shared stories, scrapbooking supplies, laughs and great food…there may have been some wine as well. Most of my friends were so productive…I was not. I do not create well at retreats. I know this and I accept this…yet I keep going to them. Why? Because surrounding myself with creative people, ‘my’ people and craft supplies fills up my mojo. These people feed my energy and my soul! I pack supplies knowing they will only be shuffled around and put back when I get home. Today was my day off. Between laundry, tidying and walking the dog I finished this layout. Little bursts of paper breaks mixed into my day…how about that!? It’s how I create; quietly in my own space, knowing…

SISTER TIME! Hello everyone – Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Time with those you love is so very precious. The very cool thing about scrapbooking is when we create those memories we can “keep them forever” in a visual form that we get to enjoy the rest of our lives. We DO NOT have to rely on our “less than perfect” memory. PLUS we have the shear joy of living that memory repeatedly not only as we create but every time we take them out to reminisce.  My two beautiful daughters were recently together in Mexico for some very special “sister time”. My girls have been best friends since they were little and as a mom, I feel very blessed to live their trip through the photos they shared with me. To create this page I used techniques that I will be teaching in one…

Are you a Youtuber like me?  I seriously could spend HOURS watching paper crafting videos and cooking videos. Today’s technology allows us to learn so many amazing things with almost no effort. Wondering how too dry emboss – you are simply one click away from watching someone teach you. When you think about it, it’s actually kinda crazy. Looking for stamping tips and tricks? Stampendous is a great site to visit for just that. Their videos are timeless. Whether the videos themselves are 1 week old or 5 years old the techniques are fabulous for the projects that you will create TONIGHT! Yep – they are timeless.

Thank you so much for your years of support – we truly…

So you have been seeing the company Gel Press on our blog and various social medias over the past few months. For those of you that know Gel Press – YAHOOOOO – for those of you who don’t – this blog post is for you. What is Gel Press? Gel Press is a company that produces a variety of products with the focus being their Reusable Gel printing plate. AND it is exactly what it says….a gel like plate that is kinda squishy. LOL! How do you use it? 1. Apply paint or texture paste to the plate using a brayer. 2. Add texture lines or drawings, stamp images, or use stencils. 3. Next you simple rub a piece of paper onto your plate and pull back the design! This design is called a monoprint!What do you use the monoprints you have created for? Everywhere you would normally use patterned…

Superhero Shirt Tutorial Hey crafters, Nicole here and I’m back to share these awesome shirts I made for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in Calgary this coming weekend.  The theme is Super Hero’s!  I have been humming and hawing about this for months!  I didn’t want a costume and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on shirts I knew I wouldn’t wear again.  So I made my own… for $10 in supplies! Lets create stencils using you’re die cuts, paints and a little imagination! Step one buy some shirts and wash them.  I grabbed mine at Michaels, $3 each.  I picked up this sticky back roll of vinyl stuff at the dollar store, 7ft for $3.  One Cricut machine for cutting out letters and speech bubbles. I needed to create a stencil so I removed the images and cut carefully cut the images out with an X-Acto knife.  Carefully…
