Hello! Kim here again today! Happy June and official countdown to summer! Did you notice that our June Sketchy Challenge was revealed? I LOVE these monthly sketches, though I rarely do not get to them until a month or two later, but THAT my friends is perfectly OK! The thing is…sketches do not expire! They will patiently wait for YOU, so relax and work with them on YOUR schedule, not someone else’s! Kerry Engel has been designing our monthly sketches; and continues to come up with great ideas! This month’s sketch is a double page layout and we are all excited to see what stories you tell! I am sorry to say…my June sketch inspired layout is a 12×12 layout. I can’t even tell you the last time I did a double page layout [probably since losing horizontal space to scrapbooking product!], so without guilt, I adapted it to what…

It’s Springtime …. time for new “discoveries”! I discovered the newest Clearsnap ColorBox Dyestress Inks…gorgeous hues of beautiful ink along with a fabulous Sizzix  Mini Album design by Sizzix Artist Lynda Kanase!  Begin by applying layers of Dyestress Tahiti, Mint and Bubble inks to the front and back Mini Album die cuts using Clearsnap ColorBox Stylus and Tips. Place the covers together; lay Clearsnap ColorBox Swirldot Art Screen to top; apply Tahiti Dyestress inks to top using stylus and tip.

Fussy cut images from the Succulent Serenity patterned paper; place on the cover…

Hello everyone! Kim here, happy to be on the Creative Scrapbooker blog again. Have you seen the “FOILED AGAIN” article in the spring issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine? It’s so awesome and so on trend! Foils are everywhere in the scrapbooking industry right now and so many ways to get the look. You can buy papers that are foiled, you can mimic the look with metallic embossing powders, there are lots of foiled stickers available and of course you can buy many products that use foil sheets. My project was inspired by this feature article from the magazine. I love to add foil finishes to my projects with Therm-O-Web products. They have so many options for you to control the foiled look of your project, from toner sheets, adhesives, pens and transfer gels…and crazy amounts of foil colours to choose from! My layout has a mixed media vibe to it,…

Happy Sunday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog creating a shiny SHAKER card. I’m still relatively new to stamping and card making. I tend to go all in and try to use as many products as I can. Thankfully, Therm O Web understands and always has amazing corresponding products that feed my need for “lots of details”.  Their Gina K. Designs Premium cardstock has been a game-changer for me; it’s smooth, high-quality finish has helped to elevate my stamping and embossing…and then they have foil – how did I ever create without foil before? Here is how I created this very happy, shiny shaker card: Step 1- STAMP Stamp the sentiment, “Thanks Snow Much”. Stamp and emboss snowflakes with Gina K. Designs Baby, it’s Cold Outside stamps.

Hello everyone, Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Welcome to my “spooky”, “get your Great Pumpkin, belief on”,  Happy Halloween blog post! I truly had some “outrageous inky fun” creating this fun card with some new techniques that I have been playing with.  These are not meant to scare you … these techniques are easy, fun and so “freaky” versatile, from the fun new way I am creating the background using my Clearsnap ColorBox inks … to the “foilicious” way I played with my pumpkin die cuts… to the “spooky/sparkly, embossed” fun of the finished look of my Impression Obsession, Happy Halloween, die.  I am going to keep you in suspense though.
