Hello Friday! How was your week? As I ready for this week’s Where You Create, I have just watched the news and continue to be in awe of the power of weather. I feel bad grumbling over not so great weather when others are dealing with so much flooding and loss…if you can – help, even if it’s putting forward positive thoughts! Because the world needs a little less crazy…lets head into Arlene’s well organized scrapbooking space!

Hello from Michelle Stewart! I’m a consultant with Close to My Heart all the way from Halifax, Nova Scotia and I’m so happy to be a guest blogger for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Today I want to share with you some cards I’ve made using 3 of the paper collections that are still currently available in our Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog. This first card is created using the Dreamin’ Big Paper, and I love the color pallet for this paper collection.  I’ve used the Dreamin’ Big cardmaking stamp for this card and fussy cut leaving a white boarder.  I didn’t have sequins in the colour I wanted, but no big deal.  Just grab some alcohol markers and colour some silver ones to match. For this next card, I used this pale pink patterned paper from the Hello Lovely collection. I wanted to create a soft feminine card so I used the…

Hello from Vicki Wizniuk! Today I am sharing a single page layout I created using the Rustic Home Fundamentals papers from Close to My Heart! I seriously am in love with how versatile these papers are.  They are very masculine, but can also be used for a more feminine project. This layout features just a couple of the patterned papers from this fabulous paper packet, plus I added some embellishments from the My Boy Complements.  The perfect pairing!  And the black gems are from the Black & White Dots pack.  I kept my layout quite simple, to give you an example of how you can create quick layouts with few supplies. If you don’t have a copy of the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations catalog or the Seasonal Expressions 1 (mini catalog), be sure to contact your local CTMH Independent Consultant.  Or if you don’t have a Consultant and…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a very simple layout that uses minimal supplies – basically just cardstock!  If you have an electronic die cutting machine like the Sizzix Eclips2, you really don’t need much else. This layout is totally about the Sunflower cut file from Quietfire Design.  I fell in love with it when I saw it, and what better page embellishment for sunflower photos?  I was so excited last year when a friend told me about a nearby sunflower field.  You can of course customize the colours and size of the flowers as you see fit so it is a very versatile file. I cut the flowers and the title out with a Sizzix Eclips 2.  I opened the svg file, ungrouped the shapes and cut them out of different colours of cardstock.  They were so pretty I didn’t want to add a lot of other ‘stuff’…

Connie created the hearts on her card using Saran Wrap, Ranger glossy paper and Close To My Heart re-inkers!  To create the textured background she used Ranger texture paste, a Dylusions stencil and Close To My Heart re-inkers! Watch how easy this is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvUU7zYoNvo Happy Scrapbooking everyone! SUBSCRIBE TODAY to our quarterly publication – delivered right to your door!
