I have been using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essential system for over a year now. I have a mix of Planner Essential Dies and Art Journal Dies, they give me endless options. Once I get started creating I find it hard to go to bed, they really push me to think creatively and their dies allow me to use up supplies in really unique ways. For this two-page spread, I used the Celebrate Autumn Collection from Echo Park Paper Co. It’s an older collection with a fabulous colour scheme. I can’t resist teal and yellow.

YES – you read that correctly. Kerry Engel has taken a sheet of patterned paper and turned it into a stencil! See that fuzzy pink flocking in the background of Kerry’s card? She created that look using a piece of patterned paper, that she turned into a stencil and then added flocking using her homemade stencil. WOWZERS! Kerry used her Brother ScanNCut to scan the patterned paper and then to cut it out on a transparency to create a stencil. This technique opens up THOUSANDS of crafting possibilities! At least! LOL!

Hey! Kim here with a quick layout share using the December Sketchy Challenge as my inspiration. This is a sketch that took me awhile to warm up to. It wasn’t until I started to rotate it and look at photos that I got a feel for how it might work for me. I challenge you to work through a sketch that you don’t love, you may just be surprised with how much you like the end result! My layout uses the most basic of supplies. I almost always have Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock somewhere on my layout! I LOVE the weight, smoothness and the beautiful, bright white of this cardstock. I used two types of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; White Permanent and Ultra permanent [I always find I need a stronger grip when I adhere anything to the textured side of Bazzil cardstock – used here as the…
