Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Explorer Journal by Momenta. When I first saw this glittery Momenta journal I envisioned a metallic-y, jewel-studded boho book. I was thinking of gold glitter, soft jute, and beach beads. To achieve my boho look I took apart an old necklace to create dangling embellishments and I strung beads on a fishing wire. I tied lots of jute and attached tags that protruded and extended over the sides. The Explorer Journal is made of a heavy, sturdy, leather-like fabric. To embroider on it I pre-punched holes with an awl. I stitched the flowers using the lazy daisy stitch and cotton thread. I learned how to embroider from my Baba (grandmother) way back in the ’70s when boho first was cool. Shiny brads completed my front cover. I wanted to cover up the stitches on the…

Hey everyone, Kim here! I’m sharing a simple layout today celebrating some of the yummy foods we enjoyed during a recent trip to Kauai. The layout itself is very basic, starting with a grid of four photos, offset to the right. I adhered my photo grid on top of two cardstock papers from some older Momenta stacks that I had from last year. The fun starts when I look for embellishments to add interest! Momenta has some wonderful dies. I was lucky enough to have three sets that played really well together and YES, one was the Christmas wreath! I easily cut the words out of the center and it was the perfect size to layer with my pineapple and flower die cuts! The “KAUAI” title was cut using the alpha dies, I love the font and size! All of the dies were cut from Brea Reese Mixed Media paper.…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick and easy scrapbook layout about my recent foray into yoga.  Yoga is not something I’d ever done before, but I’m always open to trying new things.  I wasn’t sure I’d like it but I did.   Especially the Aromatherapy Deep Stretch and Relaxation class!  In order to scrapbook this I snapped a picture of my new yoga mat and a screenshot of yoga appointments during my trial week.   The screenshot was originally a very vibrant grass green so I adjusted the hue to purple in Photoshop Elements so that it would match my yoga mat and background paper.  Super easy to do and made the whole scrapbooking process much easier and gentle on the eyes. I started with a beautiful piece of paper from the FabScraps Serenity line.  The double-sided patterned papers from this line have soft muted colours and patterns featuring botanicals,…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring stamps, dies and patterned paper from the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection.  I adore the coneflowers and other blooms that are its focus.  In addition to patterned paper, there are three stamp sets with matching dies that are part of the collection.  I’ve used the set called ‘Blossoming Coneflower’.  I stamped the images with Ranger archival black ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.    These pens were absolutely perfect for this project – I could achieve gradation of colour in the petals and leaves with a single pen.  Supplies Used:  Heartfelt Creations patterned paper, stamps and dies, MultiCraft flakes, glue, letter stickers and wooden butterfly, Chameleon Color Tone pens, Ranger ink, Glue Dots Adhesives, corrugated cardboard, doily. I used the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection and Blossoming Coneflower stamp with coordinating die. I stamped the Heartfelt Creations stamp using Ranger…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a number of products manufactured by MultiCraft and adhered together with various adhesives from Glue Dots.  MultiCraft is based in Ottawa and strives to provide great quality craft items at reasonable prices.  Some of the brand names under the MultiCraft umbrella are Forever in Time, Craft Medley and Color Factory.  I find many of their products at my local dollar store so they are an excellent choice for frugal paper crafters. I started with some Forever in TIme Vintage Rose patterned cardstock.  I moistened the top and bottom edges with a paintbrush and some water and rolled and ripped them to create a border.  Here’s what the flip side of some of those patterned paper looks like.  Many of them are glittered and are very pretty. decided that a guitar-themed layout needed a guitar-shaped embellishment so I printed out an electric…
