Happy Spring, everyone!  Even if Mother Nature is not co-operating in some areas of our country… 🙂 Today I wanted to share a quick Easter treat box that we made up in just a few minutes.  And yes, I said WE… Every time my 10-year old daughter hears my Silhouette singing, her Pavlovian instinct kicks in and she comes running to help!  Which is awesome, because you know, a family that crafts together… usually ends up with twice as much stuff!! 🙂 We used this adorable Lori Whitlock cut file from the Silhouette Store to create the box, stuffed it full of Easter grass and some marshmallow eggs (my favourite!) and voilà!  Easy Peasy Cute and Squeezy! 🙂 Supplies used:  Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine; Lori Whitlock cut file; Bazzill Basic Paper cardstock; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares. Thanks for visiting! Cheers! To view this and more of Sue’s designs,…

Hello everyone! I wanted to share a quick idea with you today to pretty up your gift giving ideas, especially since there are 85 days left till Christmas! Supplies used:  Paper Mâché mini hat box (Michael’s); Die Cuts With a View burlap paper; Tim Holtz vintage button; Maya Road trinket pins;  Sookwang double sided tape; scraps of felt and ribbon, hot glue gun. To create the burlap flower, I traced around a small cup and cut 4 circles out of the DCWV burlap paper.  I then folded each circle in half and then quarters and attached them to a circle cut from the double sided tape, with their points meeting in the middle.  Using a strong wet adhesive, I attached a vintage button to the centre and ruffled the edges of the petals to distress them a bit. The felt flowers are very simple as well:  Cut a strip of…

Hi everyone! Last weekend, I had a girls’ scrappy weekend at my place and I managed to complete the impossible – I finished FIVE of my UFO’s (UnFinished Objects)!!! I’m sure some, if not all, of you can relate … They are projects that for one reason or another have been set aside – missing journaling, lack of inspiration, lack of TIME!  I completed journaling for two layouts that will be used in upcoming monthly sketches, a Christmas project and set of Christmas cards and this vacation journal that I started a few years ago!  It wasn’t coming together, but last weekend the stars aligned, the angels sang and it all came together! I made the journal using a variety of items:  9×12 manilla envelopes, white card stock, baseball card protectors, transparencies and even a film negative sleeve! Rather than monopolize the blog with photos of each page (there are…

Welcome to Part 9 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Kim Gowdy is sharing her space. Welcome to my scrap room or as I like to call it…MY HAPPY PLACE! First off I apologize in advance for the sense of disarray! I have been asked to share my “space” at a point where I need to get in and do some spring cleaning. I have recently brought in a few more organizational aids but have not yet got them organized! I promise it will happen! Don’t get me wrong…I am not saying my room is always tidy, it’s just at a crossroad where I need to purge some old “stash”. So…..enter! My craft room started out as my sewing room! I have always had a space to sew or craft, a place where I could start a project…

Welcome to Part 8 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Kelly Klapstein is sharing her space. Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! It’s Kelly here today and it is my pleasure to invite you into my studio for a little tour. I do have a small room that I call my own where I scrapbook and write. I’ll be the first to admit that organizing is not my strength. Ha ha! Most of my studio has pieces and decor that have sentimental value, and I also have special treasures on display that make me happy. The most significant piece of furniture in my studio that really helps me stay organized is my Scrap Box. I love it! I bought it (well, I got it for Christmas) a year ago. Here is a close up of all the containers that I filled…

Welcome to Part 7 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Christy Riopel is sharing her space. Hi all, welcome to my studio. I am very blessed to have such an amazing space. It is basically our bonus room and overlooks the front of our house. Here is the entrance to my space. The door you see is my laundry room. The shelf unit is two units stacked on top of each other. In these drawers, I store all my scrapbooking stash, like stickers and rub-ons and such. On top I store some extra craft supplies and handmade papers. This is a basket of finished cards ready to use. The next wall is filled with shelving and stores a whole bunch of stuff. Baskets filled with tools. Rubber cling and acrylic/polymer stamps are stored on plastic file folders.…

Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! Kelly here to share with you today some projects made with Bo Bunny products.  Now who doesn’t love Bo Bunny?  They always come up with the most wonderful collections with patterns that are so versatile and eye-catching.  I love crafting with Bo Bunny! Here is a layout I designed using the winter collection “Powder Mountain,” which I received in a kit from ScrapThat!, a Canadian kit club. Another fall/winter collection is “Love Letters.”  I used the matching Bo Bunny chipboard stickers to add dimension to my layout. I made a video on how I created this layout.  Click HERE to watch the video The new spring collections are just arriving in stores, and I couldn’t be more excited!  Here is a layout I made with “Prairie Chic.” If you’d like to see how I designed this layout, here is a video you can watch…

Welcome to Part 6 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Jennifer Hottinger-Sloan is sharing her space. Hello, everyone!  Jennifer here with Tuesday with the Team! It is my week to show you where I create.  I decided to make a video as I thought it would be fun to do…well it was more challenging than I thought!  So you will find two videos, my photo card would not do it in one shot.  The lighting is off too, since it was dark out and I apologize in advance for turning the camera on it side at one point!  I am on a major learning curve – someday I will learn how to take a video! Here’s Part I: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUT3afF1x6Y And here’s Part II: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rD5GSr7xkAY Ed. note:  If you don’t see the videos above, please click here for Part…

Welcome to Part 5 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Jodi Wilton is sharing her space. Hi everyone! Today I am going to give you a glimpse of my small scrapbook room (or closet like room!)  I am fortunate enough to have a space to myself, which wasn’t always the case! As my love for the hobby grew, so did my scrapbook supplies, and what was once an office, slowly turned into a complete scrappy space for me.  The room is very small (7 X 8 feet at the most!) but I have tried to make the most of the space I have. I have literally occupied as much wall space that I can. If I knew that this was going to be a scrapbook space when I moved in, I think I would have painted it a…

Welcome to Part 4 of a 10-part series called Where We Scrap, where our bloggers share their scrap space with you.  This week, Connie Nichol is sharing her space. I don’t have a fancy place to scrap but I am grateful to have my own little corner of the house to make a creative mess. When I started to scrapbook about 11 years ago after baby #2 was born, the only available spot in the house was in the basement next to the chest freezer. So, I put a table next to the freezer and worked on that. Of course over time the table filled up with ‘stuff’, so I used it more for storage and did my actual scrapbooking on top of the freezer. I vastly prefer to scrap standing up, especially when I am stamping, so this works perfectly except when somebody wants something from the freezer (“Mom, can…
