Happy Fall Creative Scrapbookers! Does the change of season excite you? I LOVE it! I just wish winter didn’t follow so quickly! This time of year always gets me thinking about Halloween. I get energized from the decorations, costumes, candy and of course Halloween themed scrapbooking and cardmaking products! My card share started with pulling these Stampers Anonymous sets from my stash ~ I love the both! I pulled out all kinds or Ranger Inks and got started with my plan! I stamped my web image onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock and embossed with Speckled Egg Embossing Glaze. This gave me a FABULOUS image to resist the Distress Oxide Inks I would be using to create my background. I added several layers of the grungy stamp to the edges with all the colours from the background and also spritzed with water. Using black Archival Ink, I stamped the…

Happy  Tuesday! Kim here on the Creative Scrapbooker blog again, sharing a couple of projects I worked on this past weekend! I’m sure, if you are a bit like me, that every now and then you find some paper that makes you super happy! Well, when I came across Echo Park Paper Co. Little Lumberjack Collection, it made me squeal just a bit! I LOVE all the plaids, patterns and whimsical designs. They will honestly keep lumberjacks of all ages happy! I first created a simple layout. I layered a square of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to the plaid background. I don’t often work with exact measurements, instead I often just use intuition based all parts! I then cut 4 rectangles from papers in the collection, approximately 3.5 x 5. This became the main component to build upon, from this point it’s all fun and embellishment! I had fun layering the stickers,…

Good Morning and WELCOME March! It sure doesn’t feel like spring is around the corner but we have turned the page on February and that’s enough for me! Head’s up…today’s project share is not very spring like either! I choose to work with our January Sketchy Challenge and some fun products I have in my stash, old & new! If you prefer to share on Facebook, we have a Sketchy Challenge Group you are welcome to join! I stayed pretty true to the sketch, with the diagonal stack of photos and snowflake embellishments, then I let intuition guide the placement of my title and other embellishments. Carta Bella’s “Let it Snow” collection was perfect for my snowy pictures. I used the papers to mat my layout and pictures. They add the perfect amount of contrast and interest to my white Bazzill cardstock base. The Carta Bella stickers, chipboard and enamel dots…

Do you ever find yourself playing with product, not knowing what will come of it and finish with a fun project! This was the case with this coffee card! I started by playing with some Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, masking off the outside border. Once the colours were placed I used this fun Pam Bray stamp from Emerald Creek to stamp over the coloured centre. Next I masked away the centre, so that I could use the same stamp around the border! Fun & simple! This was the perfect background for a fun, chipboard coffee cup from Southern Ridge Trading Company. The chipboard piece was embossed with Emerald Creek’s Just Java Aroma Embossing Powder – smells as good as it looks! I outlined the words of the chipboard cup with a Ranger  Dylusions’ paint pen and added some ‘steam’ with a Distress Marker. Coffee cheers to you!

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…

Happy Tuesday everyone! Is the sun shining in your neck of the woods and possibly sending a spring vibe to your world? It’s Kim here with a Tuesday With the Team layout share! My layout is NOT very springy but since we are officially still in winter, here I go! I used our January Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for my layout. Rotating it to the left seemed to work best for me. I was thrilled to pull out my Carta Bella ‘Cabin Fever’ collection!  From the first time I set my eyes on this collection I LOVED IT. It definitely gives off a cozy, winter vibe and was perfect for the photos I wanted to share. This collection has the sweetest accent elements in chipboard, stickers and journal cards [12×12 sheet].I love how my completed layout came together so quickly with this sketch a paper collection. Don’t be…

I LOVE turkey and mashed potatoes as much as the next guy, but the best thing about Thanksgiving is what comes next! Halloween! I have loved Halloween as long as I can remember! I’m not sure why, maybe because I’m an October “baby” and many birthday celebrations were shared with Halloween events or maybe it’s the colours of fall and the chill in the air…time for sweaters, candles and candy! HALLOWEEN DECOR Of course, when my turn came up for this week’s Tuesday with the Team…I knew I would do a Halloween theme! Without further ado, here is the project I worked on! A little Halloween décor to creep up a corner in my house! This diorama was quite easily put together. I had a box from some Christmas cards that I had saved because it was very sturdy and I loved that the cardboard cover had an opening making…

Hey Crafters, Nicole Wright here and I’m back to share my love for industrial crafting.  With the new Sizzix  Gears available I decided to haul out my Sizzix Gadget Gears die (I believe the first Sizzix die I ever bought) and have a little fun experimenting with my embossing powders and distress crayons. I cut a set of Gadget Gears with Sizzix Little Sizzles White Mat Board.  I heat embossed a coat of Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Era Hammered Metal Embossing Powder.  This thick powder leaves open spots to add color.  I wanted to see if the distress crayons would work to create a weathered patina on the gears. On the set of gears I used Ranger distress crayons vintage photo, mermaid lagoon, peacock feathers and peeled paint.  The distress crayons fill in the areas the thick embossing powders don’t.  Once the colors are filled in I used a baby wipe to remove…
