Hey everyone! Kim here with a fun little product share! When we were at Creativation, with the Creative Scrapbooker Team, in January, we saw this neat flower making tool called Fablossom. This product was being demonstrated with fabric and my first thought was ‘I wonder if it would easily work with paper?”, a few steps down their booth they had the paper version! SWEET! The kit itself comes with everything you need to make plenty of different flowers, The instructions are very easy to follow, once you get a handle of the paper folding you are good to go! They include lots of all parts required to put the flower together, as well as a punch to create your own centers! I immediately thought of all the paper I have on hand at any given time and figured I can cut circles to make this work with my own product!…

As I went through all the blog posts that Christy Riopel supplied Creative Scrapbooker Magazine over the years, I was once again AWE-STRUCK  by how incredibly talented Christy was. Often you can look at a layout or project and  say “That was created 10 or 15 years ago” based on the style or design of the layout. That just isn’t the case with Christy’s designs. They are timeless creations that look like they could have been created yesturday. Like this layout Christy created almost 10 years ago featuring chipboard gears from FabScraps.This week I am sharing with you the extact blog post Christy shared with us – TEN YEARS AGO! Amazing! Christy Riopel’s Blog Post Using Christmas Ornaments as Embellishments by Christy Riopel With all the stores stocking up Christmas ornaments I often keep my eye out for themed ornaments that are flat enough and super fun to use as…

Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am playing with the FabScraps Mother Earth collection of patterned papers perfect for heritage themed layouts.   I have a little vintage scrappy inspiration for you. I have a love for my collection of heritage family photos. I am lucky to have had access to huge photo collection from both sides of my family. So I have scanned, printed and archived many of them. So today I am sharing a layout that I created using a photo of my grandmother (left) and her 2 sisters. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting any of these beautiful, strong women. But I can create and share their legacy. FabScraps Mother Earth Collection This collection from FabScraps is the perfect pairing with heritage photos. I created a patchwork of pattern behind my photo. Simple squares of multiple patterns, make a…

Christy Riopel designed the following layout featuring FabScraps for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog approximately 4 years ago. The line of patterned paper and chipboard from FabScraps no longer exists however the beauty of the design is timeless. The Blog Post The copy for the blog post that Christy wrote was very short and to the point….exactly like Christy. There was nothing complicated about her teachings and her designs. Here is the post …. as written in her words…. “I wanted my layout to hint towards the military nature of the Museum so I cut pennant flags from FabScraps patterned paper and arranged them like a soldiers medals. I curled the paper with my fingers to add dimension to the page. I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares to attach the flags so they would stand up from the page.” Christy Riopel Giggle Giggle – like I said…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring papers from the FabScraps  collection called Mother Earth. I just love the gentle colours and the beautiful botanical images on these papers.  I was totally inspired by the Berry Bliss sheet of patterned paper to scrapbook my love for raspberry freezer jam.  We eat a lot of it in my house and I make jam all year round.  Once I discovered freezer jam, I never went back to cooked jam.  It just tastes a thousand times better and is so quick to make. FabScraps Mother Earth Patterned paper Here’s a few images of the paper in this FabScraps collection.  Gorgeous.   I like to fussy cut some of the images out and use these as extra embellishments to accent the page.  I also used a sheet of finely corrugated cardboard that I had rescued out of a recycle bin a…
