Hi there!  Nathalie DeSousa with you today sharing my first blog post as part of the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team. I am very humbled and excited to share a bit of my work with you all, so what better way to show you my style than to create a 12×12 scrapbook page that combines a bit of mixed media and the beautiful Bliss Collection from Simple Stories.All those beautiful and soft colors in the collection are perfect to document spring and new beginnings, so I pulled a cut file from the Silhouette library, and backed it with papers from the collection.To add dimension to this page, some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares were used to attach the cut out to the background.    A bit of distressing on the top edge of the page provided the perfect place to add a small cluster of embellishments.Some of the floral motifs…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a summer layout featuring digital cut files and a stamp from Quietfire Design.    A few years ago my boys decided to canoe (i.e. float) down the North Saskatchewan River.  They launched in Edmonton, and I was instructed to pick them up downstream in three hours time.  Unfortunately, the river was quite low and the current slow, and it took a lot longer than the predicted three hours.  Of course, my husband had no cell phone with him so I had no idea where the canoe was.  I waited and I waited and they finally showed up…… phew.  They have never repeated that particular adventure. I love the versatility of having an electronic die cutting machine.  It’s amazing.  Need a canoe to embellish a canoeing layout?  Presto, wave the magic wand and cut a canoe, paddles and water with your Sizzix Eclips 2.  Any…

Good day Creative Scrapbookers! Jayme Loge here today with a few layouts from my craft table. I wanted to play with a few simple supplies and try to create a couple of layouts with them. I started with a few sheets of We R Memory Keepers patterned paper and coordinating sticker set, a few sheets of Bazzill cardstock and an American Crafts alphabet set. Here’s what I did with them: First, I started off using the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketch from this month’s “Let’s Get Sketchy” challenge – CLICK HERE to download your take on this sketch! I added the heart to the background with some ‘vintage’ Heidi Swapp masks and Inca Gold paste. I changed the orientation of the sketch somewhat and used a special old photo taken on a trip to Mexico in 2000. Back then, film cameras were still in use and disposable panoramic cameras were all…

Today we welcome Adel Otto as our guest blogger who designs wonderful scrapbooks with pocket pages. I’m probably a Canadian memory keeper just like you: a dark roast coffee drinker, Netflix voyeur , a teacher, a wife, and a mother to four teenagers. My memory keeping style is “pretty storyteller”, so I like to capture adventures, transformations and celebrations in a lovely, bright and layered way. I can be found sharing on Instagram  aottocafe and at my blog “Studio Latte.” Are you head over heels over pocket pages? Maybe you can’t believe you are finally recording your stories again because of Project Life or you love the Simple Stories Snap albums or Studio Calico Handbook. I had a mad crush on pocket pages for two years before I started adding 12×12’s back into my albums. Even though pocket page spreads provide a lot of options for memory keeping, I often…
