Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. We had a lot of celebrating going on in my family this year. Our oldest daughter has graduated from the University of Alberta. Creative Memories Cap and Gown Collection provides a lot of inspiration for layouts and cards. This collection also has a coordinating album – which I love.  Super quick and super easy.  In this layout I used the Variety Mat Pack to create a faux pocket page.  The only additional item I used was Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Creative Photo corners.  I adhered stickers on cardstock and fussy cut out the stickers and mounted them on foam squares to create some dimension.  You did it card I like the challenge of trying to create fun cards from Variety Mat Packs and stickers. I layered the 4×6 card on the 4.5×6.5 card and used stickers, Scrapbook Adhesives…

Hi everyone – Noreen Smith here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.Do you use sketches in your scrapbooking? They are so versatile and you can use them over and over again, right? Well, you can really do the same thing with a card sketch! At this time of year there are so many occasions that you might be creating cards for, so why not use one sketch as the basic design and change up your supplies to create all of the cards you need quickly and easily? Each month I design a “1-2-3 Card Sketch” that gets its name because it uses just 1 sentiment, 2 paper shapes and 3 embellishments. I create a handout with the sketch and measurements as well as samples of the finished cards, along with a video that demonstrates how quick it can be to create cards using this formula (if you’re interested, you…

Hi Everyone! It’s Kelly here to share my new Double the Fun sketch and layout….for our Spring 2016 issue! A double sketch sure comes in handy for big events involving lots of photos, like my daughter’s Graduation last May. I think I will be scrapping those pics a lot especially because a really talented and creative photographer took them.  Thank you Madeline Ludlage Photography! I used mostly Momenta papers and products for the design. This gorgeous paper pack by Momenta is called “Perched”. This cardstock patterned paper has beautiful collage images on it. I used a pretty floral Momenta Stencil with a Faber-Castell Texture Gems Gel Liner on the right page. I also used this gold Gel Liner to add dimensional flourishes to each side of my title, which are Momenta alphabet stickers. This gorgeous layered Momenta bird die is so pretty with the embossing. I layered May Arts gold pearl ribbon…

Today we welcome Sylvie Hoobanoff as our guest blogger, who will share some fabulous graduation layouts she has completed for her daughter. Hi there! My name is Sylvie Hoobanoff and I’m very happy to share a project I’ve been working on with you today. I live in beautiful Canal Flats, BC with my husband of 25 years. This fall we became empty nesters when our 18 year old daughter, Julia, went away to college and our 17 year old son, Nick, went away to play Junior B hockey. Now that my car pooling days are over, I am hoping to find more time for my passion of paper crafting and scrapbooking. My daughter graduated high school in June 2014. After the two day event, I had over 100 photos to scrapbook! There were professional photos, personal photos that I took and even some I borrowed from my daughter’s friends from…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly here, and today I’m going to share a fun embellishment you can make for your scrapbook layouts or cards. For my newest Double the Fun sketch, I created this layout, celebrating my son’s Graduation: See those shiny silver stars?  They are made using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam shapes: 3D Foam Stars and Clearsnap foils!   In the package, the 3D Foam Stars are nesting, so you get an assortment of sizes. Here is a quick photo tutorial of how you can make your own shiny stars! Designer Foil from Clearsnap will help you make your stars silver. First, remove one of the star outlines from the sheet and place on any patterned paper. I used BoBunny’s Woodland Winter collection. Remove the adhesive backing from the 3D Foam Star and then press the Clearsnap Designer Foil directly on top.  You don’t have to rub, just press…
