Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine bloghaving some fun with Therm O Web products!When our design team package arrived bursting with Therm O Web Gina K. Designs and iCraft products –  the first thing that caught my eye were the Decofoil Clear Designer Toner Sheets with the floral sketch design. So many possibilities and they felt so springy! Toner Sheets – SO Easy to Customize The toner sheets come in a variety of designs. For this project I used Gina K.

Send it fold first and avoid folds or uneven parchment…

When I travel I like to document my thoughts, experiences and days in a journal. When I have a bit more time (or my husband needs a nap) I like to draw and record the colours and patterns around me too.  Kelly Klapstein’s new products were made for hand lettering but the minute I got my hands on them I knew they’d be great for using as a journal. Traveler’s journals are all the rage right now and Kelly’s journals and juicy pens are definitely going into my suitcase.   If you do a bit of prep before you leave you can have fun making water color backgrounds to add more interest to your documentation.   Here’s how I created my journal:  1]   I prepped my journal page by spreading gesso with an old hotel room key (a loyalty card would work too).  It doesn’t have to be smooth, actually a…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am having some SERIOUS fun with my Tombow Dual Brush pens! While I was in Barcelona last spring we toured many of Antoni Guadi’s buildings.  I completely fell in love with Guadi’s work, especially his tiles and stain glass. They inspired many pages in my art journal and this layout. When I got home I knew I had to try a scrapbook page with the technique.  I used watercolour paper as my base, a good mixed media paper would work well too. I taped the paper to my surface with washi tape to keep any wild paint spots from migrating too far off the page. To create the tiles I drew random shapes with Tombow Dual Brush pens. My vision was to create a rainbow wave of colour. I started drawing the shapes in one corner of the…

We absolutely love it when MultiCraft asks our design team to take their Scrapbook Challenge! They send three of our design team members the exact same products, ask them to create a project, whether it is a card or art journal or scrapbook layout, the sky is the limit and we get to see the results! This time around I was able to take part and had an absolute blast playing with this collection of their awesome products.  This collection included a a 6X6 pack of patterned paper, cardstock, stickers, charms, metallic pen, gems and adhesives all from the wonderful people over at MultiCraft. I absolutely love seeing the different takes. Nadine Wachter Nadine decided to create a beautiful 12X12 layout with some machine stitching. Nadine incorporated a number of 6X6 patterned papers on her layout, along with the chipboard, stickers, adhesives and metallic pen.  I especially like how Nadine…

“Double double, toil & trouble”…. Tim Hortons? Shakespeare?… No, Creative Memories. Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog having double the fun with two layouts and Creative Memories Toil & Trouble Collection. Feeling Punchy The colors in this collection are rich and yummy; teal and orange are so fun for fall. The coordinating cardstock is perfect for punching out embellishments or to use as a base. Creative Memories has some fabulous punches, the pumpkin one just makes me grin. The footprint punch was probably made with beach layouts in mind but  I punched out the foot prints on the bottom edge and then placed a black piece of paper behind the cut-out to create some creepy ghost like foot prints. Are you scared??? The fence and pumpkin punches layer nicely. How cute are teal pumpkins? To create more depth I inked all my edges in Ranger  vintage photo…

Happy Monday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Don’t you just love patterned paper with large life-like quality graphics on them? Full image graphic patterned papers, such as those from Paper House Productions are so stunning I am almost afraid to use them with my photographs. I find that I  just want to put the paper with the beautiful graphic images, without anything on it, in my albums! They are so gorgegeous and at the same time can be intimidating! The Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team has fallen in love with the Delish Collection from Paper House Productions. A few weeks ago Tracy McLennon also created a layout featuring this gorgoues collection of patterned paper with LARGE graphical photo quality images on them – CLICK HERE to see Tracy’s creation. Here is what I created with a few different pieces of patterned papers from Paper House…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with some autumn inspiration for you from BoBunny and the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine October Sketchy Challenge. This month’s sketch gives you room to tell a great photo story; it has room for four photos! The off-kilt design shakes things up a bit, creating some fun energy. I love summer colours but it was so fun to play with the rusty burgundies in this BoBunny Dreams of Autumn collection, they are so rich and yummy: almost makes me excited that fall is here. Pretty much every fall photo I have looks great with this line.One of the cool features in this collection is the page with all the single elements. I fussy cut out several of the leaves and then got messy. The results were some realistic 3D embellishments. After I cut out the leaves I sprayed them with water and…
