Hi everyone Noreen Smith once again playing with Creative Memories! Happy to be back on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today sharing a couple of layouts made with Creative Memories’ new Slice of Summer seasonal products! As soon as I saw the papers, stickers and variety mat pack for this collection I knew it would work for lots of fun summer photos.For the first layout I chose several photos of my family at the beach last year in Osoyoos, British Columbia. The photos are not the best, as the sun was behind my sons as they stood in the lake, but I wanted to use them to remember the lovely, relaxing holiday that we had. I figured that cropping them down would help, so I chose the best photo to leave as the largest (4” x 4”), then trimmed down the supporting photos to 3” x 3”. I matted all…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Summer holidays are almost here and I’m sure that many of you will be vacationing over the summer holidays at Disneyland with your family.

Meet Milagros Rivera – this weeks guest blogger! Hi Creative Scrapbooker fans, Milagros with you today from sunny Puerto Rico! The month of October marks the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve been involved in doing something to raise awareness for the past 10 years, I’m really excited to be here with you and broaden the scope! I’m so lucky my mom has survived her fight and we have her with us! I also need to check myself again this month because on my last mammogram the radiologist detected something she wants to closely monitor because of my family history.

Put some positive energy out there. Run or walk a marathon and pass the word.  We are in this…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring Bo Bunny, Elizabeth Craft Designs Way with Words dies and a Quietfire Design stamp.   This layout was inspired by the September sketch in the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge.  It turned out looking nothing like the sketch, but hey.  That’s the creative process.  A sketch is a good place to start! Here’s the September sketch designed by Kelly Klapstein.  Be sure to go check out the new Sketchy Gallery and upload your interpretation of this sketch.  I love to see how everyone else’s projects turn out. The photos in this layout are of my friend Sue and her beautiful daughter Caitlin from 11 years ago.  We used to take our children on all sorts of little adventures, and although the kids don’t remember any of them now, not a single one, the stamped quote is totally true.  All the things we…

Here is a layout I found in the CSM archives Christy created years ago. Christy  created this layout for a feature we were going to run many years ago about our CS Team’s individual scrapbooking spaces.  It was one of those features that didn’t fly.  The layouts were archived for a rainy day.  We never wrote down the supplies that Christy used to create this layout. One thing is for certain – Christy loved her art studio.  So did we! Creative Scrapbooker Magazine is honoured to announce that we have started an ART Scholarship in Christy’s name.

Here is a blog post from Christy from a few years ago for you to enjoy. Written in Christy’s words. The other day I was working on this layout with the fabulous paper and embellishments from FarmHouse Paper company and May Arts ribbon and I really felt like the beautiful rustic quality needed to be accented and off set with a little glitter. Perplexed with how to add it, I decided not to over think it and grabbed my trusty  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  tape runner and added stripes of the tape runner over the paper. I then poured Craft& Glitz Glamour Glitter all over the tape and burnished it with my finger. I poured off the excess glitter and my paper was ready to build my layout on top off. The glittery stripes add a great level of texture and interest. This simple technique, done with a versatile adhesive…
