Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a bright and cheerful scrapbook page featuring Close to my Heart products. My kids and I travelled to Germany last summer with friends and had the best time.   And took a lot of pictures.  Ha!  You’ll be seeing a of them as I slowly get them scrapbooked. This layout started with the Happy thin cuts die from CTMH. I coloured the die cut with Chameleon alcohol ink markers and then added three coats of Ranger clear embossing powder to make the words glossy and dimensional.  You can see how to do this step by step in the Creative Scrapbooker Technique Taster’s Web Show #105 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NnLYeAYb6A&t=6s It’s easy to do and looks very cool. I used patterned paper from the Close To My Heart Adventure Fundamentals line – so bright and colourful – and coordinating die cuts from the Good Life Fundamentals packet.   …

I am just loving some of the new Spellbinders Shapeability dies that were released this winter.  The die set “Shoot”, a set of five arrow dies, actually inspired this layout.  Because arrows made me think about directions, I googled ‘direction quotes’ and found a perfect quote for a scrapbook page.  There were a lot of great quotes to choose from but I’m thinking that arrows are the perfect touch for many projects.  A very versatile die set.  Spellbinders also manufactures my favourite alphabet die sets – the font one upper and lower case sets are the perfect size and style for many projects.  Just love them.  When you make your own letter stickers, you never run out of ‘a’s. Adhering small or delicate die cuts can be tricky, but a Xyron Create-a-Sticker makes the process incredibly easy.  I turned all of my Spellbinder die cuts into stickers so that they…

When you step inside the Spellbinders™ booth at CHA, it’s as if you’ve travelled back in time into a glamorous, Victorian mansion….filled with lace and jewelled treasures. These displays were showcases for Spellbinders “A Gilded Life Studio” , a mixed media product line for jewellery making, home decor, embellishments, paper crafts and so forth.     A vintage dress form made from dress patterns! Fabulous! Spellbinders also introduced a new collection of Shapeabilities™ dies that are trendy and smaller in size, called “In’Spire”…..the anchor, birds on wire, feathers, typewriter etc. The other new Shapeabilities collection is called “Create-A-Flower”, die sets of petals and flower pieces that you build to create beautiful realistic 3D flowers, which I didn’t photograph, but you’ll see on the Spellbinders website and blog in the upcoming weeks. One of the most exciting products newly released by Spellbinders is their new “Tool n’ One”, a portable tool that…

I know there are many of us in love with the gorgeous styles of stamps, dies and papers designed by Heartfelt Creations.  Their booth at CHA was sooo beautiful! I think this paper crafted dress form captures the essence of this wonderful company! Their floral dies are…well…to “die” for.  This is evident on all their projects on display. Their newly released “Majestic Morning” collection includes a paper pack, dies and stamps.  It’s gorgeous! All collections on display are stunning, actually. You can use Heartfelt Creations products to design scrapbook layouts and paper crafts too! Isn’t this birdhouse fabulous? Seeing this wall of layouts in their booth was inspirational. This layout is one of my favourites!  How elegant! Valentines and Easter projects were also on display. Honestly, my head was spinning…I’d never seen so many amazing projects on display all in one place! Walking…

For today’s CHA tour, we are visiting a booth filled with so many wonderful stamps and dies:  Impression Obsession. Let me tell you, the name of this company fits….because after looking at all these gorgeous dies and stamps, I was obsessed!  I want them all!!!! The rubber stamps have such beautiful detail. There are also many wonderful clear stamp sets. I was astounded by all the amazing cards on display. The newly released Valentines stamps and dies are on my shopping list! When you see all the stunning cards made with these products, then you want to use them all! The cupids are a hot seller! And don’t you just LOVE this heart flourish die? Here is a really fun display of a chalkboard stamping technique: Wow.  Decisions, decisions….time to go to their website and make…
