Happy New Year! Kim here with a quick layout share! It felt so good to ‘clean up’ Christmas within my house and get back to some routine. By the end of December I have had quite enough of too much food, too much shopping, too much wine, so many events, so many to-dos…this introvert needs to cocoon a bit in January! I managed to find some time to play in my craft room last night! YAH! One thing that has become a ‘thing’ for me is to gather all my Christmas cards and scrapbook/collage bits and parts of them into a layout. It’s a great way to hold on to the sentiments, photos and fun images of the cards from friends and family. It is also a great way to upcycle them into something that will bring us smiles for years to come. It is not in my nature to…

Every year I sit down for a little tag making session! I like to gift my co-workers with a little something fun to take home for Christmas and feel I must include a handmade tag as they all know I am passionate about paper crafts. I want my tags to be simple enough to make in bulk, but with enough details to show I care! I started this tag making session with some shipping tags purchased at Staples. I added a small strip of plaid paper [Echo Park Lumberjack Christmas] and then stamped the gift and branches images [Stampers Anonymous Seasonal Scribbles] with Distress Oxide ink.  I coloured and outlined the images with my Nuvo alcohol markers. I choose these markers for two reasons…I LOVE them and they will not reactivate the Distress Oxide ink! A little glitter was added to the gift image with a Nuvo glitter marker. My…

I could live in a world of Octobers! I love the temperatures, colours, pumpkins and I am all over Halloween. My son is off on his own and our house doesn’t get many kids dropping by on October 31st, but I still try to fill my cup with as much of the season as I can. We took in the Pumpkins after Dark event in Edmonton, imagine over 6000 hand carved pumpkins! It was impressive to say the least, and a fun evening to be out with my son and husband. I knew as I pulled out my phone to take pictures that I had the PERFECT, new paper collection at home to create a scrapbook page with. Such a new collection to me that it was still in a bag and not put away! For this fun layout I used the Simply Stated Design “Haunted Halloween” collection. Gorgeous papers…

Kim here with a quick card share! This fun anniversary card came together pretty quick. My background is from a gel print I made last year. I often pull out my Ranger Gel Printing Plate and Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint and just play. These prints most often become backgrounds for cards, and it’s always great to have them on hand.On top of a black cardstock base, I layered up a piece of ephemera that I had on hand, then stamped some asemic writing [Paper Artsy stamp]  with some Distress Oxide  Ink. I found what I felt was the perfect couple from my Tim Holtz Paper Dolls collection and adhered it with Tonic Studios Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive [current FAV!!!!]. I quickly added soft colour to the bride’s flowers with my Tonic Studios Nuvo Alcohol Markers, they worked perfectly on the shiny surface of the paper dolls. I stained some…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with another puppy layout…I guarantee more will follow as my new puppy Kona is my current photography muse! I wanted to do some doodling for this layout, it’s a fun layer to the kraft paper I used as my base page! I pounced some gesso through the Dylusions daisy stencil using a makeup sponge. Once the gesso was dry I doodled away using my Zebra CLiCKART pens. Doodling is a fun way to turn off your brain while being creative! I took a page out of my Dylusions journal to use under my photos and as a fun way to document some text: EAT, SLEEP, PLAY! The Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive was perfect for adhering the sequin flowers and my Olfa Knife and Ruler get pulled out throughout the scrapbooking process, I LOVE straight lines and sharp cuts!My PUPPY title was easily made by adding Deco…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick share of a recent layout inspired by the June 2022 Sketchy Challenge designed by Kerry Engel.This was a super quick layout to pull together, which was awesome when life is busy. Allowed me some creative head space as well as a sense of accomplishment when I add it to my album! I used a combination of Simply Stated Design papers and die cut embellishments and a few bits and pieces from my Ali Edwards stash. I just LOVE how easy it was to make these little embellishment clusters, there are so many lovely pieces to play with! My permanent tape runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L was my adhesive of choice to keep all my parts together! I look forward to working with our second June Sketchy Challenge, stay tuned! Hopefully you are enjoying the beautiful issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, if…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick summery card! This card was too cute not to bring into the blog to share! I grabbed some things from my Therm O Web and Ranger stash and paired them for a fun outcome! I inked up a chipboard wreath from Southern Ridge Trading Company and adhered it to my card blank using Media Ultra Thick Gel Medium. I’ve been enjoying the ease of Tonic Studios Craft Perfect pre-cut & scored cards, they come in a variety of sizes, mine was 6×6. Now for the fun! I inked up my Therm O Web Rina K. Designs stamps using Ranger Archival inks in a variety of colours and layered them on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock, this is a perfect weight card stock for cutting dies. After die cutting my images, I adhered them to the wreath with the Media Ultra Thick Gel…

Happy Tuesday friends! Kim Gowdy was on our latest web show – Scribble Sticks Gnome House Card creating this happy little fairy house card. Makes me want to see what is going on inside that adorable little house! Kim added the customized sentiment to her card using the Brother P-Touch Cube (PT-P300BTAD). This little dude is a GAME CHANGER!One of the things I love about the P-Touch Cube is that the ribbon comes in different widths, colours, designs and textures! You can create labels that are thin or you can create labels that are thicker… all by changing out the ribbon cartridge. You can also change the colour of the ribbon, colour of the font, length of the ribbon, the font and so much more! Make everything custom or use one of the built in templates. TRULY making the possibilities ENDLESS with the Brother P-Touch Cube! Watch as Kim puta…
