Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here with my layout for the October Sketchy Challenge. The Fall colour palette is so beautiful…all the golds, reds, yellows, oranges.  They make me so happy when designing a scrapbook layout, especially when I have some pretty photos in hand and the perfect papers to match. Here is my take on the October Sketch: These Creative Memories papers are so pretty and have a light vintage feel to them. I used my Brother ScanNCut to create this paper pieced pumpkin, along with cutting the hexagons. I hope you give this sketch a shot and upload your layout to our Sketchy Gallery! We would love to see your designs! Kelly Klapstein You can visit Kelly’s blog by clicking HERE.

Today on our blog we welcome Stephanie Hart, an artistic crafter from the East coast. Hi Everyone! My name is Stephanie Hart and I live just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia with my wonderful husband, two amazing step sons and six cats! Yes, you read that correctly! Six! I prefer the term “Creative Cat Lady”, and this is explains why I chose the domain for my personal blog: www.thecreativecatlady.com I’ve been scrapbooking since 2008, and I fell pretty hard for the hobby. Scrapbooking is my main love, but I also like to make jewelry (beading and silver Metal Clay), polymer Clay, pet photography, watercolors and mixed media. Some of my Polymer Clay embellishments have even been featured on the cover of Canadian Scrapbooker (Fall 2009), and I will always remember the moment when I spotted one of my little mushrooms on the main display at the Chapters Books Store. Ever…

Today on our blog we welcome Bev Code, a talented paper crafter who is going to share her wonderful designs that are all based on our September Sketchy Challenge. Hi, I am Bev Code, and I am super excited to be a Guest Designer on the Canadian Scrapbooker Blog. I was new to online scrapping since April 2009. There were so many amazing sites that were my learning curve to this amazing world of scrapbooking. I am a wife, mother and gramma that loves being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart’s content. I love scrapbooking along with fun things it entails like online friends, forums and Facebook. All these provide the knowledge and inspiration used when creating. The learning process has been interesting, and along the way I have been fortunate enough to join many design teams which feed my passion for the craft, and it allows…

Hi Everyone! It’s Kelly here to share my new Double the Fun sketch and layout….for our Spring 2016 issue! A double sketch sure comes in handy for big events involving lots of photos, like my daughter’s Graduation last May. I think I will be scrapping those pics a lot especially because a really talented and creative photographer took them.  Thank you Madeline Ludlage Photography! I used mostly Momenta papers and products for the design. This gorgeous paper pack by Momenta is called “Perched”. This cardstock patterned paper has beautiful collage images on it. I used a pretty floral Momenta Stencil with a Faber-Castell Texture Gems Gel Liner on the right page. I also used this gold Gel Liner to add dimensional flourishes to each side of my title, which are Momenta alphabet stickers. This gorgeous layered Momenta bird die is so pretty with the embossing. I layered May Arts gold pearl ribbon…

If you love stamping, then you probably love Quietfire Design products! These beautiful calligraphy stamps and hand-drawn images look gorgeous on cards, scrapbook layouts, and other paper crafts. Quietfire Design also offers a selection of wonderful dies in the calligraphy style. Today Kelly Klapstein’s Graduation layout is on the Quietfire Design blog featuring the stamp set “Butterfly Circles, May the Wings.” Click HERE to visit their blog now and learn more about this page design. Kelly used the FabScraps paper collection “Tranquility.” The circles, diecut element, and gold border were all cut using the Brother ScanNCut machine from Core’dinations  Adhesive glitter paper and Canson Watercolour paper. The ScanNCut can scan the stamped images and cut a shape around them. The Core’dinations glitter paper is 12″ x 24″ … and works beautifully with electronic cutting machines. This is the perfect glitter paper for home decor, papercrafting and a DIY party! The…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share a layout I designed using the August Sketch and Creative Memories. Have you heard that Creative Memories has returned to the crafting industry? I know there are many of you who are thrilled about this news! I thought that their papers would be perfect to scrapbook some photos of icebergs I took while visiting Newfoundland in July.  Thanks to my friend, Michelle Marks, we went “Iceberg Hunting” and found these beauties!  I was in AWE. I used a couple of paper packs from Creative Memories: Neutral and Vintage. I thought the combination of blues and greys worked well for my iceberg themed page. I created the diamond pattern background layer with my Brother ScanNCut machine, cut it from watercolour paper, and then painted it in ombre blue shades with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. If you  haven’t tried these Tombow…

Today we welcome guest blogger Lynn Lefebvre who is sharing her love for scrapbooking! Hello everyone! I’m Lynn Lefebvre and I’m super excited to be here today!  I live in a small town in Northern Ontario with my husband, two daughters and two Siamese cats. I have been scrapbooking since 2002, but I really fell in love with the craft when I discovered the blog world in 2012.  I love all the different challenge sites, which really pushed me to get out of my comfort zone.  I am a huge fan of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, and I am honoured to have been published in a few issues.  My daughters often argue to be on my next layout because they love to see their photos in the magazine. In 2013, I started a monthly challenge blog called Challenge YOUrself, which encourages scrapbookers to get in front of the camera and include themselves in their layouts. I…

Since Spring has yet to be sprung here in Newfoundland, I found myself at a scrapbook retreat last weekend. Many of you are likely to be doing this over the next month. One way to prepare yourself for a crop is to create kits out of your own stash. Ain’t nobody got time for that. But kits that are already created for you… I can do that. Gosh, even YOU can do that! I tossed my Hooray It’s Your Day Simply Created kit by Stampin’ Up! as well as my Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper in an organized fashion into my crop bag and off I went. Note that the Painted Blooms DSP was showcased here last month – be sure to check that out if you missed it. Yes, I am still hoping that by playing with flowery paper, a beautiful flower will magically appear on my front lawn…

Today on our blog, we welcome Karen Hach, a really talented scrapbooker who designs for scrapbook stores in Edmonton. Hi there! My name is Karen Hach and I am so thrilled that I was asked to share a little bit about myself with you. Let’s get to the personal stuff first. I have been married for 13 years to a wonderful man who not only supports my complete and utter addiction to scrapbooking, but also understands it. He also is cool with my need to get away for crops and bonding time with my scrapbook gang. Yes, that is a real thing. When we built our new home, he encouraged me to take up a large chunk of our basement with a custom-designed scrapbook studio. I am lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom to four very active boys, aged 10, 6, and 3 year old twins. Two of them…

A huge hello to everyone out there in the paper crafting world! I was absolutely delighted to be invited as a guest blogger, featuring Magenta Style products. A little about me: I live in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, a mom of 20 yr old twins (girl & boy), married for nearly 23 years, a Registered Nurse going on 29 years and yes, I am addicted to anything and everything in the paper crafting world! I’ve been crafty throughout my entire life in one way or another but was not introduced to scrapbooking until 2006. It took one home party to get me craving for more. Scrapbooking turned into card making which turned into mix media, home décor, etc, etc. I am not a routine person, and I tend to get bored easily so paper crafting for me is the PERFECT right brain activity. The moment I find myself “bored” I switch…
