Creative Scrapbooker Magazine


Good day Creative Scrapbookers! Jayme Loge here today with a few layouts from my craft table. I wanted to play with a few simple supplies and try to create a couple of layouts with them. I started with a few sheets of We R Memory Keepers patterned paper and coordinating sticker set, a few sheets of Bazzill cardstock and an American Crafts alphabet set. Here’s what I did with them: First, I started off using the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketch from this month’s “Let’s Get Sketchy” challenge – CLICK HERE to download your take on this sketch! I added the heart to the background with some ‘vintage’ Heidi Swapp masks and Inca Gold paste. I changed the orientation of the sketch somewhat and used a special old photo taken on a trip to Mexico in 2000. Back then, film cameras were still in use and disposable panoramic cameras were all…

These bottles filled with vibrant pigment ink have been showing up on all our Design Team projects! Here Desiree Saskiw has used citronella coloured Aladine Izink distributed by Clearsnap to create a bright journaling block in the center of her layout. She then added her journaling  and doodled frame using a black Creative Memories black Dual-Tip pen. All those little chipboard elements are stuck on her layout using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Dodz. Happy Scrapbooking everyone

Hi there, Connie Nichol here with my interpretation of the January sketch in Creative Scrapbooker’s  Sketchy Challenge. Here’s the sketch.  As you can see,  I used it as starting point, but sort of flipped it and changed the circles to other embellishments.  Sketches make the whole scrapbooking process much faster for me. I used Close to My Heart’s Urban Paper Packet and Complements for the project.  This is great boy line – very masculine colours and patterns.  The Complements are a variety of stickers and chipboard die cuts to embellish the page. To add a little more fun, I took a wet paint brush and flicked a little blue watercolour paint on the background page.   There is already some blue droplets on this particular patterned paper, which gave me the idea to add more!  At the end, most of it ended up being covered with my photograph, but…
