Hey there! It’s Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com here with some ideas for using not-so-standard sized papers to create standard 12” x 12” layouts. Creative Memories has an incredible line of products known as The Happy Album – a petite album that can be used as a journal, a planner or anything in between. New Happy Album Kits by Creative Memories are released each month and include various papers, embellishments, and instructions to create super cute spreads on the 6.75” x 10” Happy Album pages. They are so much fun! But sometimes I love the contents of the kits so much that I want to use them on my regular 12” x 12” scrapbook pages too. So, I’ve come up with two standard double-page spreads that make the most of the papers and stickers in the latest Happy Album Kit – #19 – leaving no paper scraps left behind! Since there are…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m back on the blog today to share with you a fun Disney themed scrapbook layout. Spring Break has just finished here in parts of BC and with Spring Break, that usually means there is at least someone going on a trip to Disneyland, which has inspired me to scrapbook some of the photos from my own Disneyland trip back in August of 2010. The jumping off point for my project was the Say Cheese 4 collection from Simple Stories which I combined with some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and ink from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this fun Believe Double Page Scrapbook Layout. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my scrapbook layout. When creating my layout, I love to mix the different patterned papers together out of the 6×8…

Hi everyone! Noreen Smith here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com with a double page sketch for you! I had so much fun with this sketch that I couldn’t just make one layout based on it…I had to make three! And I was happy to use three of the newest new paper collections from Creative Memories – Oh, Canada!, Star-Spangled and Brave – to do so. All three of these fantastic paper packs are perfect to use during the summer months to celebrate upcoming patriotic holidays, summer picnics and BBQs, camping and outdoor adventures, and heroes of every kind!I love creating simple and versatile layouts that I call “1-2-3 layouts” because they use just one piece of double-sided patterned paper, two pieces of cardstock or album pages for the base and are made with just three cuts. Here’s the sketch:And here’s the cutting guide:It’s sooo easy and quick– cut your double sided 12” x…

Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel. Christy’s designs are timeless. So many of her creations from way back when continue to inspire us today. Here is a double page layout that Christy designed in the Fall of  2015. This layout was created for a blog challenge Christy was participating in. This layout makes me – Happy/Sad. So very, very happy that she loved working with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. So very, very happy that she created a layout expressing how she felt about her job with us. So very, very happy for this fabulous memory. And with this beautiful memory – a tear finds it way down my cheek. Forever missing you Christy. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art…

Hello! Noreen Smith here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com, and I’m so excited to be back on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! Today I’m sharing a heritage layout featuring some brand new Creative Memories products mixed in with a few old favorites! The beautiful new Archiver’s Collection is comprised of a Paper Pack, Laser Cut Embellishments, Laser Cut Borders, a Variety Mat Pack, a linen-like textured Album cover with a photo window and ABC/123 Stickers that look like typewriter keys! While designed as a heritage themed collection, the neutral colour palette makes it versatile enough for any theme, and works perfectly with sepia, black & white and colour photos. Like many of you, I am the keeper of all the family photos – not only for myself, my husband and kids, but also for my parents and all their family photos. I am in the early stages of curating and celebrating their memories…

Hello! Noreen Smith here, and I’m very happy to be on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today to share some Christmas projects using Creative Memories’ Sugarplum Collection! This sweet collection features a Paper Pack, Stickers, Embellishments, coordinating Vellum Papers, a foiled Album cover and Fast2Fab Pre-printed Album pages! The designs are inspired by holiday candy, décor and classic Christmas icons, as well as whimsical, playful patterns that also make it perfect for birthdays, Winter, babies and more.Some might comment that at first glance the collection doesn’t seem too Christmas-y as it features a lot of pastels. But of you remember that colors like pink and mint green are just tinted versions of the more traditional Christmas colors of red and green, you’ll realize that they really are quite versatile! Since there were some cute candy and gingerbread house icons in the sticker pack, I used the collection to document our…

Hello everyone! Vicki Wizniuk here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am sharing a layout I created using the new Falling For You patterned papers from Close to My Heart! I also added the orange strip at the bottom of the pages from the new Cats & Bats patterned paper packet from Close to My Heart. The word FALL is from the new Block Alphabet Thin Cuts dies – I seriously love these – they make creating titles an absolute breeze. I cut the leafy branches from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge. I added shimmer to the leafy branches using a Shimmer Brush, and added some White Dots, which are adhesive backed and just add a little extra pizzaz to my layout. I stamped the date in black ink using the Jennifer’s Hand alphabet stamp set. So many awesome details on this layout. If you don’t have a copy of…

Way up on the Mountain – Featuring BoBunny – Take a Hike By Kerry Engel Creative blocks? Do you every get them? Sometimes I move the photos around for days. They sit on the counter and everyday I come in and move them around until something jumps out for me. With this set of pictures my first impulse was my go-to “grid layout”. This layout sat on my counter for a few days, it felt sort of boring, it didn’t get my mojo going. That goofy selfie photo made me laugh and I felt like it should be the dominant photo on the page. I also wanted more white space. Something that is hard to do with a set of photos that filled their frames. I also wanted to create some movement, this is when I decided on this layout. After I figured out how I wanted to position my…

Hi everyone! Jodi, here today to share with you a Simple Stories double pager that I completed for my project life this year! I love this style of scrapbooking that really captivates the every day moments, and Simple Stories makes it so easy to do this! For my WEEK 6 spread, I used the collection: HOMESPUN. This is the first time I have used Simple Stories for this type of project, and I was amazed at how fast it all came together! Here is the left side: I primarily used their 4 X6 cards and 3 X 4 cards and added some stickers and chipboard for extra detail: I even added some stickers on photos to tell the story more: Here is the right side of the layout: So have you ventured into this type of scrapbooking? I love it! Thanks for letting me share today! Supplies:  Patterned Paper,…
