Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring Momenta cardstock and Art-C texture cream.  My youngest played team handball at school this past year and I wanted to scrapbook the photographs the school took of the team.

I used Ranger Ink Distress Markers hickory smoke, carved pumpkin, twisted pumpkin and vintage photo to create my tabby crazy cat.  Just like Miss Flurry… the stamp eating cat.  I just got the Sizzix Crazy Cat dies so it was so great to not fussy cut. Now that the Crazy Cat is quickly cut I can start the background.  I used my Ranger Distress Ink to ink up my Upstream…

Happy Tuesday! Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! Life In Color, what a great name for a collection…nicely played Simple Stories. That being said, I love the colours in this collection, so vibrant and rich. I have always loved earthy tones, I think it comes from the fact that I have a red tinge to my hair…pinks and purples just do not work for me. But since Sean and his beautiful girls came into my life, they have brought me an entire rainbow of colours I can now craft with! Now I’m living a Life In Color!
