These bottles filled with vibrant pigment ink have been showing up on all our Design Team projects! Here Desiree Saskiw has used citronella coloured Aladine Izink distributed by Clearsnap to create a bright journaling block in the center of her layout. She then added her journaling  and doodled frame using a black Creative Memories black Dual-Tip pen. All those little chipboard elements are stuck on her layout using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Dodz. Happy Scrapbooking everyone

One of the best parts of going to a crop is getting to play with our friends’ supplies. Last March, on the first night of our weekend crop at Pigeon Lake, I spied this row of  Aladine Izinks Pigment Ink distributed by Clearsnap. That night I dreamed about Clearnsp Izinks all night. I literally dreamed about them. Dripping them actually! I was so excited to get my hands on the Izink pigment inks that I woke up before everyone else. I used Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock (CSS) as my base, and as I wasn’t sure how the Izink would drip I used gesso on my second page. The first page was naked. Newport Beach layout: Izink on Naked CSS I’m not really sure what verb best describes the action required to place Izink on your page. It’s not really a drop. It’s a mashup of a plop and a dab… it’s…

Another fun sketch for April! This sketch designed by Sue Sykes was really fun to play with this month. I used papers, alphas and embellishments exclusively from the Simple Stories “I AM” Collection! As always this collection is full of fantastic colors, images, journal cards and embellishments. It makes putting a layout together pretty quick and easy! Here is my finished layout. Not often do I create a page just about me, but this collection inspired me to do so! I am hopeful in years to come; my family will appreciate me stepping outside of my comfort zone to tell a story about me! I challenge you to do the same…it’s OK to keep it simple! One other product I did add to this layout was Clearsnap iZink. I mixed the Caviar with some water to make the grey spray you see on the background! Easy Peasy…DONE! …

Kim here with a post today on a cause that has become near and dear to Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine’s team. You may have already noticed on our blog and Facebook page; a link to “Hope for Haiti”. We also have a full page dedicated to the cause in our magazine, in hopes that OUR scrapbooking community can rally together and help raise the funds required to build an ART ROOM for the under privileged children living in the outskirts of Cap Haitien. This art room would be a roof-top adjunct to a school being built with the help of volunteers like our team member Alison Orthner. She has joined forces with LIVE DIFFERENT and CANADIAN SCRAPBOOKER magazine in efforts to make this dream become a reality. A place where these children can leave the hardships of their life for a short time and create beautiful art and music. Every child…

Did you know we started offering FREE cut files this summer? Sue Sykes designed these fabulous cut files for our readers. They can be cut with many die cutting machines on the market that are able to cut using an SVG or Studio file. I thought we should share them again and encourage you to use them! These fun designs will be great for summer fun and winter getaways! I played with Sue’s third cut file, an inspirational quote that spoke perfect words to my graduating son’s picture. I played with the file a bit to change to word sizes and placement. I believe most programs will let you do this. It took some ungrouping and regrouping of letters, but very doable! I hope you take the time to download these wonderful files, they are yours to download and use for FREE! SUPPLIES: Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock, Kaisercraft patterned paper,…
