Hello everyone, Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. In this time of isolation, it is challenging to get together with loved ones. Sending a handmade card to your mother or mother figure is the perfect way to show your love and gratitude. Here is a simple watercolor tulip card you can make in minutes. SUPPLIES: watercolor paper, Kelly Creates Aqua Brush pens or similar water-based brush pens, Black Fineliner or sentiment stamp, water, paintbrush or water brush, ribbon, cardstock. Brush the watercolor ink onto your card to form the tulip in 3 parts: centre, left, and right. Add as many tulips as you like. I did three. With a green Aqua Brush, lightly brush 3 stems in a downward motion. Add leaves with a similar motion and stroke except make them pointy at the tip and wider in the middle. Add a second color to the…

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share some calligraphy tips with you. Many people who learn lettering with brush pens struggle with connecting strokes to write words. Today I will help you with that issue. I’m using my Dream Pens, my Deluxe lettering kit and my Kelly Creates Grid practice pad. Remember to always use smooth paper with your brush pens, not regular paper, which will damage your brush tips because it’s too rough. Before you start writing words with your brush pens, make sure you have a solid foundation of practicing the basic strokes and individual letters. Then move on to writing short, simple words. The biggest hurdle for many beginners is drawing long exit strokes. If your exit strokes are too short, then you can’t connect the next letter properly, and when you do, it will look crowded. Do you see how my exit strokes stop…

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here, and I have some special news for you….I made a couple of scrapbook pages! Since I started calligraphy, my scrapbooking has taken a backseat and I haven’t designed a layout in FOREVER. I tell you, it felt really good to be playing with paper again! For both layouts, I used the Vicki Boutin collection from American Crafts and my Deluxe Lettering kit. This kit is perfect for hand lettering projects because you have every tool you need: ruler, pencil, eraser, fineliners, black brush pens (fine, med, bold) and 3 colour large brush tip pens. There are a few simple steps to follow when adding your own lettering to your layouts. 1. Think of a title and write it out in different ways on scrap paper with a pencil. 2. Arrange your page elements onto the background paper and decide where and how your title…

When I first picked up a brush pen 3 years ago and began practicing lettering, I quickly started to think about how I could teach others how to learn this beautiful art form of calligraphy. Soon I developed my own set of tracing worksheets (just like I used in elementary school) that would help others develop the skills to write pretty letters. Then American Crafts came along, and we collaborated to design an entire product line of pens, workbooks, practice journals and more that would make learning calligraphy easy and fun. Now I can teach workshops with my own Kelly Creates pens and workbooks! If you can’t attend a workshop, here is what you need to learn brush lettering: Workbooks, a Practice Pad, and The Deluxe Lettering Kit, which has both large and small brush tip pens for both workbooks. You could also use the Dream Pens (large brush tip)…

Hello everyone – Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Fall is the time of year when I like to change up the home decor and add some new hand lettering projects to celebrate the season. I have been inspired by our resident colouring artist Betty Hung, who illustrates and colours like no one I have ever seen! So I decided to design a hand lettered Autumn-themed piece and use my Chameleon Pens products to colour it. I have used the Chameleon Color Tone pens before, but I haven’t used their Color Tones pencils…and this rainbow of pencils are just gorgeous in the box. There are 25 double-ended pencils, which adds up to 50 colours! For every hand lettered project, my first step is to sketch a design roughly with pencil. I have an 8 x 10″ frame for this piece, so I knew the measurements of the…
