Hello, dear Creative Scrapbookers! I am Jayme Loge –  a writer for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and I am delighted to provide some inspiration for you today as I play with my Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper and Alcohol inks! I was at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in Edmonton last weekend, immersed in all kinds of inspiration. There were many things that piqued my creative interest, with all the creative people, stores, classes and make and takes, and I am going to share one thing that I’ve created since coming back home. Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol ink Yupo paper and alcohol inks were at the top of my list to play with, and I had a lot of fun creating some simple cards with cool alcohol ink backgrounds. I loved the celestial feel of the color palette I worked with and thought this sentiment was perfect! I simply…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Jayme Loge here with a  little glance at what is on my scrap table this week! I’ve not spent a lot of creative time making cards or scrapbooking lately; I’ve been creating in other ways, exploring poured acrylic painting, working in different kinds of planners, creating messy art lessons for second graders and playing with the Impression Obsession Elegant Feathers stamp set. My oldest niece graduated in June, so I took that as an opportunity to get back to my first love and create a grad card for her. I love how it turned out- it is not at all traditional but I think it is encouraging for a lovely young woman about to head out into the adult world. With everything laying out on my scrapbook table, I just kept going and created this layout using an old photo. I stamped out a bunch of feathers…

Hello and welcome to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Tuesday with the Team feature. I am Jayme Loge and I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! Starting with the Summer 2019 issue, the magazine is publishing a new ongoing article called “Planners Gonna Plan”, researched and written by yours truly. I’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of planners so I can share with readers and I am learning a lot of great organizational tips too! I was given the opportunity to play with some new American Crafts ‘Kelly Creates’ products. I love the marker sets! If you know me personally, you know what a funny thing that is for me to say. I have such a love/hate relationship with coloring; I do enjoy it and find it relaxing, but I don’t have the time to really invest in developing my craft and…

Hello and happy Tuesday! It is Jayme Loge here hoping all you Creative Scrapbookers are having a lovely morning with some signs of spring. Where I live, we’ve been buried under an endless ‘polar vortex’. While it has meant a lot of time indoors for scrapbooking I am totally craving some outdoor life! It was a good opportunity to tackle some of the photographs in my ‘to be scrapbooked’ folder. My usual process is to start with a photograph and find paper and embellishments to suit, but I had the lovely Wild Whisper Designs “Farmhouse”  paper pack that was just calling. I ended up choosing two pictures of my daughter, Avery, taken about 11 years apart! And both featured the great outdoors, so I could at least revel in the memory of it… I first scrapbooked the more recent picture. I like to wait until the school year is over…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! My name is Jayme Loge and I hope you enjoy this little blog offering for your inspiration.  Because let me tell you, my oh my! did I have fun playing with these adorable Whoot stamp collection from Art Impressions! I just love their squeezable, squishable big-eyed faces! They are simple enough cards, but a lot of work goes into coloring or painting the images and I just didn’t want to get in the way of their whooty cuteness! The first card I made features a simple stenciled background (Tim Holtz stencils). I used a sponge applicator and Dylusions paint over a page torn out from an old book. I totally geek out over using book pages any time I can! I colored the stamped image with Chameleon markers and assembled everything on a Kraft cardstock. The next card features a row of water colored Whoot with a…

Happy Friday everyone! Jayme Loge here once again on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine playing with some fun products from Kaisercraft. I have lived in Alberta all of my life. In fact, my people have lived in Alberta for generations. I love traveling all over Canada and the rest of the world, but there is something about the sky here in Alberta that is home to me. I married a man from BC, and so we take frequent trips through the mountains to visit his family. I LOVE the mountains, and my eyes are delighted continually throughout our whole visit, every single time. But I noticed early on that a feeling of peace and contentedness settles over me every time we return home. There is just something about that sky! I take endless pictures of the sky. In storms. At sunrise or sunset. In every season. In the city or across a…

Hello everyone, Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Delish collection by Paper House Productions. I work in a school, and so I have fantastic summer holidays. I always make huge lists, and formulate big plans and then, as it happens when there is an abundance of time, the days disappear with the daylight hours. I have long since learned that scrapbooking is one of the casualties of diminishing time and large lists.  I mull ideas for pages when I’m weeding in my garden. I plan out photos and supplies I want to use while driving out to the lake. I spend an hour or two in air-conditioned scrapbook stores, adding to my stash. But when it comes down to sitting at my scrapbook table and actually scrapbooking, I can’t get there. I guess I am loathe to sacrifice any hours of sunshine to my…

Hello! It’s Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  I am sharing some cute gift tags I made for some very special people in my life. At the end of May I travel to Canmore Alberta with an incredible group of ladies to run in the Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run. Some of us are athletic and some of us are not (*cough* me* *cough*), but everyone is positive and supportive and even though I have to run up and down mountains, I enjoy the weekend away very much! A couple of years ago, I shared another gift bag and tag I made for these ladies, which you can see here. Ranger and Sizzix I again used the Dylusions sprays from Ranger, but this time I layered transferred images from stencils as a background. The butterflies were made with a die set from Sizzix, that I cut…

Jayme Loge here on this lovely Tuesday in April.  I’m going to confess right off the top that spring has never been my favourite season. It’s wet, and windy and muddy and grey. But this year, with our record breaking, never ending winter I am craving spring like never before.  Bring on the melt! Bring on the mud! Bring on the drab, dusty landscape! Bring on anything but snow for my eyes to see! As a scrapbooker, I can make these wishes come true. I escaped to my scrapbook area and dug out some favourite spring photos. Although it is too soon yet for gardening, it is one of the rituals that I love about the season. I come from a long line of gardeners, and remember many a spring day planting and hoeing and planning with my extended family. My grandparents had the most astounding gardens and I am…

Hello everyone Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am now the mother of a fourteen-year-old girl. She is feisty and brilliant and amazing and she is going to do wonderful things in this world. She is evolving before my eyes and it is exciting to see her discover her strengths, make mistakes and make choices about whom she is going to be. It’s lovely, and completely unbalancing. Some days she changes faster than I can keep up with and then when I think I can stretch no further, she relaxes and cocoons herself in the safety of home. I take a break from this dance by looking back at old photos and remembering all the little details of who she is and where she has come from. It’s funny the traits that don’t change. Her hands-on approach is one of them. She loved wearing ‘twirly’…
