Today we have Kerry Engel as our Guest Blogger, and she is sharing how she is using up her stash by making something new with something old! I have a confession. I find card making stressful. I’m a scrapbooker. I marvel at the beautiful cards that card-makers create. The meticulous stamping, perfect embossing and amazing colouring… I have trouble thinking without a photograph and yet, I still make cards. Mostly to use up my stash because …I have stash-guilt. I got on a card-roll earlier this summer when my daughter came downstairs and declared, “We are out of cards!” Buying cards just feels wrong when I can make them so I tend to go on a card-making-bender each summer. This year, my card-making-bender was made simpler by the addition of the Core’dinations ColorCore Polka Dot Pop card package. I need to confess two things. I love Kraft coloured paper and…

Newport Beach layout: Izink on Naked CSS I’m not really sure what verb best describes the action required to place Izink on your page. It’s not really a drop. It’s a mashup of a plop and a dab… it’s…

Today on our blog, we welcome Kerry Engel.  We love Kerry’s artistic style of scrapbooking! Hello everyone, my name is Kerry Engel.  I am a scrapbooker, amateur photographer, wanna be art journaler (it’s a word – I looked it up) and an on-line learning junkie.  I built my first scrapbook back in 1988 with photo corners, a black pen, a Hutchings and Patrick Scrapbook and probably rubber cement. I googled Hutchings and Patrick and they are now listed as vintage on Etsy.  Gotta say, that kind of hurts. I also need to confess that I was editor of my high school year book, so I’ve been addicted to memory keeping for a very long time. I first heard about ‘modern’ scrapbooking back in 1993 as we drove through Utah. I remember getting all excited listening to the lady on the radio talk about acid free papers and books. It wasn’t until…
