I have been thinking of Christmas Projects and put together this Christmas Tag designed on the Time for Home Paper Collection   from Ciao Bella Paper I first of all need to apologize: I know when I often do a post for Creative Scrapbooker, I always have detail and process images for you to see how I created each step, i took images with my mobile and when I went to move them to my computer, I somehow lost them, I tried for hours to recover them but had no luck, so I apologize for that and hope that my description through the steps are ok. Here is my Tag that I put together for you today! I love how it turned out, perfect for a Gift Box I started with…

Hello friends! Welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker blog.  It’s Karan Gerber here today to share a rusty tag project with you featuring Prima Marketing Rust Paste. I hope you like what I have designed for you today. I have been feeling somewhat rusty lately, LOL and by saying that I mean, I have been using the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing on a lot of my projects lately.  This little jar of goodness is really easy to use, you just need to apply it in a dabbing motion, and heat set or let dry and this is what the end result looks like. It’s super easy to use and the effect is pretty incredible. Here is a sneak peek. The base of this tag is a Tim Holtz Etc tag measuring 4.5 x 8. I then covered it with gel medium and placed Rice Paper from Ciao Bella  ( Oxido…

HI Friends, welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Blog today!  Its Karan Gerber here to host the blog for you today and I have a simple winter, scrapbook layout to share with you using papers from the Kaisercraft Wonderland Paper Collection.   I know sometimes we want to fit as many photos as we can on a layout, but often times we are able to capture a special moment and that photo deserves a full page.  This photo is of my friend’s grandson Boston, I am so grateful she let me scrapbook him. To start off, I used the Wonderland snowfall for my background, cutting out a one-inch frame all the way around and I matted an 11 .75 x 11.75 dark blue cardstock on top. Realizing this color would be too dark for my layout I decided to add another cardstock mat on top of that measuring 11×11. My cut out from the background…

Hello Friends and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Blog. Its Karan Gerber here to inspire you today and I have a card I designed using the papers, archival board, flowers and stamps from 49 and MarketThe papers are from the new Island Paradise Collection and the flowers are the Cotton Blends. So to start with, I cut two papers from the collection.  One measuring 5.5 x 7.5 and the second, 5×7.  I wanted to make sure there was enough contrast between the two, so the top one is a bit darker than the bottom mat. The second step was I used some Stamps from 49 and Market, first set being Pascale’s Grammar Stamp and the second was Pascale’s Formula. For the second step: stamp the background very randomly using the Grammar set of stamps using Ranger Black Archival InkI then used weather wood distress ink from Ranger and used the Formula…

Welcome to the  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.  Its Karan Gerber and I thought I would share a Christmas Card with you using some products from Heartfelt Creations My card is designed using the O Holy Night collection which was released last month. The mini poinsettias and leaves along with that delicate holly branch are from last year, but still one of my favorites go-to’s when doing Christmas Cards. So let’s get started. First, we will need to cut our papers, the card base is a 6×12 folded in half; the dark green is 5.75 x 5.75.  I like the border the white automatically creates, if you prefer to have the green go to the full 6×6, that would look lovely too. The red is 5.25 x 5.25 and the wood looking paper is cut from the reverse of the center of this one and measures 5×5. Using the Ornament Die set from Heartfelt;…

HI Friends, and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog today.  Today it is Karan hosting the blog and i have a tag to share with you using products from 49 and Market – CLICK HERE  One of my most favorite techniques to do on tags is the “smooshing” technique and I did that and created my background here on the tag below. Tags are perfect to attach to gift bags; to a layout, they are just as easy to create as a card and you can have lots of fun creating them.   Here are some detail images of the tag: Here are some steps to get you started: 1. Using Canson watercolor paper, cut a piece measuring approximately 3.75 x 6. Banner cut the top.  I like to place blue tape on the edges of my tags so that I end up with a clean white edge when I’m done…

Its Karan Gerber here to host the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog and today, I am sharing a brick wall inspired layout with you.  This is my first time creating a layout on the blog, normally I do cards.  Today I wanted to share some of my mixed media tips using products from Art Anthology.   I am fortunate to be a member of their design team for this term and I wanted to share some tips with you.  I am also blending in stamps and dies along with some border dies from Heartfelt Creations. One of the things I love about the stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations is how versatile they are and you can use the flower dies on any project. On this layout I used a sheet of white cardstock, gave it a coat of gesso.  I then used a brick template from Want 2 Scrap and used texture paste…
