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!…

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…

Entering the Heartfelt Creations booth at CHA is like walking into a flower garden! The newest release is “Sugar Hollow” featuring the cutest little owl. As per other Heartfelt Creations collections, Sugar Hollow products include paper packs, stamps and die sets. The projects on display for Sugar Hollow were so sweet.

Every shelf in the booth was filled with stunning paper crafts created with both current and older collections. The 3D Flip Fold Album is perfect for the scrapbooker who loves mini albums with lots of pockets and interaction.

Today we welcome Barb Brookbank, an Albertan photographer who elevates her photos into works of art! Hi! I’m Barb Brookbank, and I’m thrilled to be a guest blogger at Canadian Scrapbooker. I’m a wife, mom, and grandma, living in the beautiful province of Alberta. I’m the blogger behind Keeping With the Times where I share my love of food, photography, and life. You can also find me on Instagram @keepingwiththetimes. I started scrapbooking in 2003 after my first grandson was born and scrapped traditionally for many years. It was a great fit since I had been making greeting cards and loved working with paper and glue. However, life changes and evolves, and I became interested in digital scrapping after purchasing a copy of Photoshop Elements 4. The box included “Learn Digital Scrapbooking” by Linda Sattgast of Digital Scrapper. Learning Photoshop took time, and a lot of work, but when it…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here to share with you my new double layout sketch and design for the Winter 2015 page call!  Don’t hate me for saying the word, “Winter!” ha ha I fell in love with the new BoBunny “Sweet Life” collection and knew it would look perfect with some photos of my youngest daughter. I fussy cut some of the beautiful flowers and butterflies from the Bobunny patterned paper as embellishments. Those other pretty flowers are Bobunny too, but I felt they were a little too dark for my layout, so I took out some Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk ink in a white colour called “Popcorn” and altered the dark red flowers so they were lighter. The gold pearls in the flower centres are BoBunny Jewels. See those pretty doilies tucked behind my photos? I used the BoBunny Lace Stickable Stencil and Pastel Pink Colorbox Chalk ink to make them! I had never used these…

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper If I won the lottery I would do three things: Get a live-in cook or at least go out to extravagant restaurants on a regular basis…or both. Hire a personal photographer to document the events in our lives Buy fresh flowers for multiple rooms in my home every week So, you’d think that if I would do #3, then I must love flowers in paper crafts. Not so. In fact, I cringe at the thought of a flower on my page… even worse a butterfly. Yet… here I am. The minute I opened my Stampin’ Up! box, I went down in my craft room to see what the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper what all about. Maybe it’s because spring is never coming here in Newfoundland.   I am pretty sure we are skipping summer all together. Sure, spring came just last week when it was…

When you step inside the Spellbinders™ booth at CHA, it’s as if you’ve travelled back in time into a glamorous, Victorian mansion….filled with lace and jewelled treasures. These displays were showcases for Spellbinders “A Gilded Life Studio” , a mixed media product line for jewellery making, home decor, embellishments, paper crafts and so forth.     A vintage dress form made from dress patterns! Fabulous! Spellbinders also introduced a new collection of Shapeabilities™ dies that are trendy and smaller in size, called “In’Spire”…..the anchor, birds on wire, feathers, typewriter etc. The other new Shapeabilities collection is called “Create-A-Flower”, die sets of petals and flower pieces that you build to create beautiful realistic 3D flowers, which I didn’t photograph, but you’ll see on the Spellbinders website and blog in the upcoming weeks. One of the most exciting products newly released by Spellbinders is their new “Tool n’ One”, a portable tool that…

I know there are many of us in love with the gorgeous styles of stamps, dies and papers designed by Heartfelt Creations.  Their booth at CHA was sooo beautiful! I think this paper crafted dress form captures the essence of this wonderful company! Their floral dies are…well…to “die” for.  This is evident on all their projects on display.
