Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The ‘Seas The Day’ Tri-fold Stamp by Art Impressions is meant to be used in an interactive card. I thought I’d challenge myself to see if I could use it another way.I ended up creating an adorable tag that I plan on using as an embellishment on a scrapbook page, but it could easily be hung on a gift or bottle of wine.My salty embellishment has a lot of depth and dimension and comes together very smoothly as the stamps and dies snuggle together nicely on a tag. To create the tag… Step 1. You’ll need 3 tags, Art C has some great vintage tags. On the first tag stamp the palm trees centering them towards the bottom. ColorBox ink by Clearsnap has yummy colors that look fabulous on the vintage tags. Stamping in brown coordinates nicely with…

Hello crafty friends! TracyMcLennon here, and today I am back up on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share a Best Wishes Card I created featuring the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Lace Frame dies, Clearsnap ColorBox products and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I wanted to showcase just how gorgeous these frame dies were, and how you can use all the different layers in one card. Die cut the following: Using white cardstock die cut the largest frame and the smallest frame. You will be using the piece that comes out of the middle of the smallest frame. Using plum cardstock die cut the largest frame. This time you are simply using what comes out of the middle. Using gold shimmer cardstock, die cut the smallest frame. This time you are using the intricate frame. Cut a piece of gold cardstock that is just a little larger than the white die cut…

Hello everyone! Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today, I thought I would share the Make-n-Take, from an event I did with Katharina in Chantilly, Virginia. First I will tell you this was an exceptional event. If you are a paper crafter of any kind you will want to be at their next event.  So many booths, vendors, door prizes, a huge crop and more. Creative Scrapbooker Magazine was there and we met so very many amazing paper crafters, made new friends and shared ideas. Here is the 10-minute make-n-take that the participants did in our booth. We had so much fun creating these speedy little tags, sharing ideas, laughing and giggling together. Once I got home, I took the same ideas and created more tags and a scrapbook page. Yes, I added embellishments from MultiCraft because “why not”, lol. This was a quick idea that…

Kim Gowdy here today with a fun little, mixed media tag to share. I love that all these wonderful mixed media products have oozed into the scrapbooking and card making world. Do you? I believe that any hobby that we stick with for a long time needs to challenge us to keep us interested and engaged. Scrapbooking continues to do just that for me…from my photography to trying new products and techniques, this industry still holds my interest after 12 years! Let’s take a peek at my tag and process. Let’s create the base! Thanks for joining me. I love how my tag turned out. I’m not sure yet how I will use. It may become a scrapbook page element, I may tuck it into an art journal or I may use it on a bottle of wine to give to my hubby to celebrate a milestone anniversary. The photo…

Happy Tuesday! Kim here with a fun Aloha layout I finished up not too long ago. Do you ever find a collection of papers and embellishments and immediately know what photo[s] you would use with it? I LOVE when that happens, because that’s a big part of the creative process taken care of…sometimes the hardest! This was just the case when I saw the Sun-Kissed collection from Creative Memories! We were fortunate to get to Hawaii for the very first time in February…this paper pack and matching embellishments screamed ALOHA to me! I instantly knew what I wanted to do with this layout, so it came together quite quick…which is so not my norm! I started out with a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, my favourite base to work on. It’s 110lb cardstock and is a wonderful sturdy base to layer on. I trimmed it down so that I could…

This week we are visiting the winter 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, Christy Riopel did some SERIOUS designing with the Creative Memories Original Border Punch system. SHE ROCKED IT!  Here is just a sample of one the projects she created for her regular column – The Tool Junkie. This was the very last article that Christy wrote for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine before her passing in August of 2016. Using the Creative Memories Border Punch System to Create a Stencil 1. Load a cartridge that makes a set of holes as a border. Some punches work better for this than others. 2. Punch a strip into a thicker piece of cardstock. 3. Using a Clearsnap ColorBox stylus and white foam tip, sponge ink through the holes onto your project. 4. Repeat with other colours to finish off the background. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of…

Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel.  Christy’s art was and still is timeless. So many of her creations from way back when are still hot and trendy today. Here is a blog post from over 6 years ago that Christy created for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine about recycling and embossing pop cans! AWESOME! Upcycling Pop Cans to Make Embossed “Tin Panels” by Christy Riopel I was inspired by an old tin ceiling panels when I created this page. I love how they go with the vintage feel of the photo. To make the panels I cut the top and bottom off a pop can and down the side. I then took my Spellbinders embossing folder and embossed the metal from the can. I then painted it with gesso and let it dry. I sprayed it…
