Hello! Kim here again for a Where You Create share! I am really happy to share today’s space with you because I think it represents a big percentage of people who scrapbook! We all love dedicated spaces with lots of great organizing ideas…but it’s just not the reality for everyone. I like to think of our creative space as a vehicle…it doesn’t matter what you drive as long as it gets you to the destination! Our destination…completed layouts and stories told! Let’s take a peek into Angie Storlie’s creative space! I’m sure you will agree…it’s pretty SWEET! Hi Kim, I am a “kitchen table” scrapbooker who keeps my stuff in a big Rubbermaid tub and a 12×12 paper organizer; in the bottom of my closet.  While I would love to have a dedicated scrap space someday, there is something great about keeping my stash to a minimum and having it portable. …

Hi everyone, Kim here today. I just finished working on a layout using October 2016, sketchy challenge. If my memory is good…that means I have used every sketch from 2016! Bring on 12 more for 2017! I LOVE them. Here is October’s sketch; my starting point. My completed layout below makes me smile, I love the Simple Stories product I used…It’s whimsical and sweet. My layout started like many of mine do, on a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Superstock. I love to build up from the basics and seem to be drawn to the contrast the white gives me when playing with other products! My first layer was created using a TCW stencil and Clearsnap’s Colorbox chalk inks. From there, I positioned my picture. I will usually just add adhesive to the center back of my photo leaving the edges free to slip embellishments under. I added several little…

Cathie Allan here. I just wanted to share a little of my “Christmas Stair Art” with you. I have been creating “Stair Art” with my rubber stamps for many years. I started creating these on 6X6 blocks of wood.  I would use my stamps and acrylic paint to create them and I place them in the corners of my stairs. These have always made me smile. Last year I started creating them with Superstock, which I fortify and now they are “so much faster” to create. No prepping of the wood. No waiting for sealer to dry and they look AWESOME. I am sharing a couple of the “older, on the wooden block” ones that I made in previous years (if you look real close you can see that these were done in 1997)and the one that I created this year.  This year’s is all done with Impression Obsession Stamps,…

Bo Bunny: Kiss the Cook Collection and Kerry Engel The Kiss the cook collection from Bo Bunny was perfect for a family perogy-making day we had last summer. I created my title on my cutting system and filled the letters with the Kiss the Cook paper collection. I combined my handmade title with letters from the collection to create my own original title grouping. I like using the small paper pads because I like layering different papers underneath my feature photo.  The smaller pads give me access to all the papers in the collection. The large chipboard elements in the collection add yummy layers and textures. To create my background I scraped Ranger gesso onto the kraft colored cardstock with an old hotel room key. I created some  green/grey shading on the Ranger gesso with a Tombow Dual brush marker. I drew around my photos and elements with a marker…
