I have a problem. I might need help, an addiction you might say…I LOVE all things Ranger, nothing Ranger is boring…it’s ALL super fun and lets my creativity flow! I sat down to make a quick card for this blog post, I pulled out some inks and stamps, but couldn’t stick with one Ranger designer, so I kept pulling out product from 4 designers! Check out all this yumminess…Distress Oxides, Dylusions paint pens, Distress Spray, Dina Wakley stamps, Scribble Sticks, Wendy Vecchi embossing powder and my Dylusions Journal Block. All of these fabulous supplies worked harmoniously to create my card. I doodled, traced, embossed and just had FUN! Not once did I overthink the process, and I love the finished card! What are your favourite Ranger products? Do you honestly have just one? We are thrilled to have Ranger as one of Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival sponsors. We hope to…

Being asked to join Jackie at Ranger’s CHA media release was pretty exciting until my alarm went off so early that morning. Tired eyes were soon open with excitement at all the fabulous new releases being shared at Ranger’s booth. They had four stations set up, and we got to spend about 20 minutes at each one with Ranger’s Signature Designers; Tim Holtz, Dina Wakley, Dyan Reaveley and Susan Lenart Kazmer…pretty easy to get just a tad star struck! Each proved to be down to earth and all had a wonderful sense of humour…made you love them that much more! First up was Tim Holtz. Lots of buzz at his table with the release of his Oxide Ink Pads, new Distress Crayons sets, Crayon Tin storage, 1 oz. size of Collage Medium, storage jars and Woodgrain Cardstock. The new Oxide Ink Pads are the next generation of Distress Inks, combining…

Sweet & Spooky Halloween Layouts by Karla Yungwirth Hi there crafty friends! Karla here today from Creative Love Affair, and I am so so super excited to be a Guest Designer today for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! It is an amazing honor! Today, I’m sharing some Halloween photos I’ve scrapbooked from a few years ago using the Bo Bunny Wonderfully Wicked Collection. It definitely is wonderful and spooky, and so fun to play with! These pictures were taken when my now 9 year old daughter, Amie, was 4 – and this year, before we even looked at these pics, my now 4 year old, Erica, decided to wear this exact costume – which her cousin had worn when she was this age! Now, to find those photos! That’s one of the reasons I love scrapbooking – looking through older pictures, remembering, and getting family talking about what they remember.…

Happy first day of Fall!  Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I’m excited to share my most favorite time of year… Fall! I just got all my Sizzix dies to play with and I went for the Dashing Deer first knowing I was somehow going to create a fall project.  Well I usually have some idea of what I may create.  This one needed lots of leaves and burlap. Onto the fun! I decided to layer up the antlers with the mat board cut 2 times and a layer of Sizzix Leather Paper.  I cut the head and upper body with some scrap Core paper.  For the leaves I made my own paper using watercolor paper. I grabbed my Ranger Distress Spray Stains peeled paint, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.  Spritz and spray.  Apply matching distress inks to intensify the colour. Now that the paper is dry I can cut…

Crazy Cats can Dream too! Nicole here share this funny little card and an easy tutorial for a background.  This card is inspired by my crazy cat.  She ate my stamps…yep you saw that right.  She ate my Upstream stamps. I hauled out my Upstream stamps and Crazy Cats stamps and Sizzix Crazy Cat dies.  I cut Dream with the Alphanumeric die on Sizzix leather paper.  I stamped this crazy cat onto watercolor paper inked with Ranger  Archival Jet Black. 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…

Hello Everyone!  I have been having a lot of fun lately with the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons from Ranger. You might know that I’ve been slightly obsessed with watercolour and creating watercolour effects with different products.  So I used the Distress Crayons to design this Mother’s Day card. Here are the Tim Holtz (Ranger) supplies I started with to create the stamped flowers: Distress Watercolor Cardstock, Waterbrush, Collage Brush, Distress Collage Medium, the Distress Crayon (Seedless Preserves). I brushed the Distress Collage Medium on the Distress Watercolor paper using the Collage Brush.  Just remember to clean your brush well right after and don’t let the medium dry on it. Let the medium on the paper dry completely and then scribble some distress crayon colour onto it. Why did I add the medium first? I find the Distress Crayons move better and dissolve into a watercolour more easily, but…

Hello again, Nicole here and I am back to share this woody tag I made to show off the Sizzix Evergreen die.  I love to get the most out of my dies and think of different ways I can use them.  I love to create layers and texture along the way. I spritzed watercolor paper water then sprayed Ranger Distress Spray Stain peeled paint, lucky clover and twisted citron.  I cut the greens from the tattered pinecone die and added a few forest moss Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock greens too.  Then I glued them all to a piece of matboard then ran it through on the Evergreen die.  Creating this 3D Tree. I stamped the Kraft tag with using picket fence distress paint then inked the edges with ground espresso.  With some scrap inked up watercolor paper I cut out “Moments” from the Handwritten Journey Thinlit.  I used this Idea-Ology Flashcard trimmed…
