Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Today I thought I would switch things up a bit from what I normally create and create some tags that you could use for any occasion. Using the beautiful Lavender Breeze Collection from FabScraps, a few fabulous chipboard pieces and flowers from Southern Ridge Trading Company, wonderful stones and embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and a variety of products from Ranger, I was able to create these beautiful Any Occasion Tags. Make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, as I show you how to recreate my tags in the comfort of your own home. To start, pull out two #8 Manilla Craft Tags from Ranger. With your tags out, you’ll need the Memory Lane and Simplicity patterned paper from FabScraps. Trace one tag on the Memory Lane patterned paper and trace the other tag on the Simplicity patterned paper. Make sure to also mark…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans!  With Easter right around the corner, I thought I would share with you today an Easter card for that special someone in your life. Using the Butterfly Kisses Collection from Bo Bunny, a variety of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, stamps, stones and embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and a variety of products from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this beautiful Easter card. You’ll want to make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, as I will show you how to recreate this project in the comforts of your own home. Using the Gatefold – Elegant Rose die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, die cut the gatefold out of Tutu Double Dot from Bo Bunny. With the gatefold cut out, trim two pieces out that measure 2” x 1 ¾”. Apply Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink to both pieces. Once the ink is…

Creating a Background with Ranger Hey Creative Scrapbookers, Nicole here with you for Tuesday with the Team.  Have you got your copy of the Spring Issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine?  This card was featured in the Technique Tasters column pages 66-67.  Here, I have a more detailed look at how to create a dynamic background using Ranger Distress Crayons.  Check out the steps below and get your Ranger Distress products ready. Brush a thin layer of Ranger’s White Gesso onto a 2 ¾” x 5 ¾” piece of cream cardstock and set aside to dry.  For the background layer prep a 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” piece of watercolor paper.  Spray with water to help the Distress Spray Stain to blend. Spray water over the distress spray stain again and heat dry.  Add distress ink and blend.  This gives the background a rich look.  Flick water over the inked paper…

Hoppy Easter to you!  Easter is just around the corner and I made a rustic little framed bunny card for Xyron.  How can you not love these mossy little bunnies!  The Xyron Create a Sticker works wonders for attaching the moss. The Ornate Frame 2 die is the perfect frame for this adorable bunny.  Applying the Ranger Emboss It dauber makes for fast application.  Sprinkle with Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Oil Rubbed Bronze embossing powder then rub the edges clean for a rustic worn look. Exposing the edges allows to some inking with Ranger Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  The Create a Sticker is the perfect size for those smaller die cuts to apply adhesive effortlessly and without the sticky mess for applying the moss. I love having moss in my stash.  Push the moss into place and trim off the moss around the bunny.  The frame is bigger so I used the Creative Station with the 5″ cartridge refill running it through face up.  Rub the frame…

Hey everyone, Nicole over at Nicole Wright Designs and I am sharing a creative challenge I face… a simple clean card.  I always want to throw all my inks, stamps, die cuts, stencils and embellishments at them.  This card is so clean and basic there’s barely even a tutorial.  That is great if you want to make some quick holiday cards or gift tags.  Take the stress out of the holidays and keep it simple. The key to making these quick with a little bling are the Ranger Metal Foil Tape Sheets. I cut the Woodlands, Holiday Words Block and Holiday Words Script Thinlits with the Foil Sheets. Using the Magnetic Platorm for the Thinlits makes cutting easy as the dies won’t shift. 2. Simply position and stick the Woodlands Metal Foil Tree onto your cardstock. No glue required. Mount your treed layer  with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam…

To start, you’ll need the top piece of the advent calendar, which is the piece that has the doors on it. Cover the entire surface with Victorian Velvet…

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…
