Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a summer layout featuring digital cut files and a stamp from Quietfire Design.    A few years ago my boys decided to canoe (i.e. float) down the North Saskatchewan River.  They launched in Edmonton, and I was instructed to pick them up downstream in three hours time.  Unfortunately, the river was quite low and the current slow, and it took a lot longer than the predicted three hours.  Of course, my husband had no cell phone with him so I had no idea where the canoe was.  I waited and I waited and they finally showed up…… phew.  They have never repeated that particular adventure. I love the versatility of having an electronic die cutting machine.  It’s amazing.  Need a canoe to embellish a canoeing layout?  Presto, wave the magic wand and cut a canoe, paddles and water with your Sizzix Eclips 2.  Any…

Stamping with your Dies by Cathie Allan Mediums and tools that multi-task always have a special place in my creative heart. I totally enjoy looking at my creative tools, toys and mediums from various sides to see what I can get them to do for me other than the “intended use” suggested by the manufacturer. For this blog post I decided to play with the “Heart Clasp Die” from Art Impressions. This die makes a lovely wrap for a card but by joining two of these dies I was able to wrap my scrapbook page and then of course wrapped my photo. I then took this die a “stamp step” forward by applying ink to the backside of the die I thus was able to use it as a stamp. Look at that die “go”!! To begin I made the Art Impressions, “Heart Clasp Die” perform as a stamp. Apply…

Using Layered Stencils from Elizabeth Craft Designs Hello everyone – Christy Riopel here! I am really enjoying playing with the Elizabeth Craft Designs new layered stencils. It lets you create two coloured patterns with ease! Supplies: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies, Stencils and Paper, Clearsnap Dye Ink, Liquitex paint, Tombow Mono Multi liquidglue, thrift store scrabble tiles, Sakura Pens Here are the Elizabeth Craft Designs  supplies I used. Step1: using an ink applicator like this Clearsnap stylus with a foam tip, apply red inks to the cherry part of the stencil. Step 2: layer the stem part of the stencil over top so each stem aligns with a pair of cherries. You can easily see through the stencil to do this. Step 3: using green inks sponge the ink over the stem parts of the stencil This gives you a two colour finished image when you lift off…

Graphic 45 is known for their unique vintage style, with bold deco patterns. You might think that you could only use vintage photos to create heritage layouts, but that is just not true. Today I am sharing a layout that I created using 2 recent photos of our daughter Zoe. This collection is beautiful and can be for any type of photo you choose. Zoe has just graduated high school and is heading to university in Montreal in the fall. Where has the time gone? These photos, taken by a a photographer friend of hers, show more than ever just how grown up, beautiful and independent she has become. We are so proud of her. This collection from Graphic 45 suits that sentiment perfectly.

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring Momenta cardstock and Art-C texture cream.  My youngest played team handball at school this past year and I wanted to scrapbook the photographs the school took of the team. I started with a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock and applied Art-C silver texture cream through an Art-C plastic stencil on both sides of the page. Don’t be shy, just smear that texture cream with a palette knife or an old credit card generously through the stencil.  It’s easy to do and just adds such a neat touchable texture to your page. Let dry.  It doesn’t take long.  I then took a couple of pieces of Momenta cardstock and layered them in the middle of the page.  If you have not used this brand of cardstock, you need to go check it out.  It’s heavy and beautifully textured and a pleasure…

Hello, it’s Connie Nichol here today with a quick layout featuring the Simple Stories ‘So Rad’ line.  As the mother of boys, I adore the colours and patterns.  It’s so bright and energetic.   The word dies ‘Live’ and ‘Laugh’ from Elizabeth Craft Designs are perfect accents to many scrapbook pages, especially those that feature whitewater rafting.  Haha.  The Rocky Mountains are about a four or five hour drive from my house and we try to get to Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia every couple of years.  I really love it there.  The last couple of trips my family has spent a day on the river with Kootenay River Runners.  So much fun and it is great to introduce our boys to all sorts of different experiences. I created this layout using the Simple Stories – So Rad Collection   I used a Quietfire Design stamp to embellish the page.…
