It definitely goes without saying that the quality of tools you use for any project makes a HUGE difference on the enjoyment level of creating!!!!! Not to mention the quality of the project. Last year I started using OLFA cutting tools and folks – they are a game changer! My favourites include their smaller scissors, craft knife and cutting mat. This company has been around since 1979 … so its safe to say – they get the CUT right! giggle giggle! CLICK HERE to check out their crafting cutting tools. AND take a minute or TEN – in this case – and watch Karla use some of the products to create a Mixed Media Chipboard tag. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrC4nrAKZ94&t=70s In this video Karla is using the following OLFA Cutting Tools OLFA Craft Knife and Cutting Mat OLFA scissors Happy Cutting My Friends! Here is an image of the final project that Karla…

Good Morning! Kim here, haven’t seen you for a bit!  Last December I officially backed away from Design Team assignments, life was taking up too much time and creative deadlines were harder to meet! I promised Jackie & Katharina that I was still their biggest fan and would send along a blog post whenever time permitted…so here I am! I find myself using up a lot of mixed media stash that I have these days; and there is a lot! This fun card for my nephew is a perfect example. I will often sit a have a gel plate printing session with my Ranger inks, paints and gel plates, they continue to be my favourites. Once complete I store all my prints in a ziplock bag to use in my art journal, card making and scrapbooking projects. That being said I cannot tell you exactly my process for the background,…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The Kraft Slimline Toner Card Fronts from Therm O Web are the perfect substrate for some good old grunge. The kraft paper withstands embossing, folding, and inking like a champ. The Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Sheets in Opal is mysteriously different depending on how it was used.  On the black toner front, it is moody but when used with the Therm O Web iCraft Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco, it looks like pearls. Layers of collaging help to create the perfect mixed media card. Here are the steps to create this gorgeous card! FOIL AND EMBOSS The top layer of this card was made by adding Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Sheets in Opal to a Slimline Foil Toner Card Front and then running the card through an embossing folder. I used the Bouquet…

Kim here today! Welcome to another Tuesday With The Team! I’m excited to share my project and technique, it’s a process that I find to be really satisfying and the results keep making me happy! I LOVE making mono prints using my Ranger Gel Plates and all sorts of acrylic paints. I can get lost in creative play for hours during this process and life stress just melts away. When I make my prints, I most often use plain computer paper, the finished page is thin, which I like! I take my favourites and scan them into my computer, this allows me to use them in so many ways. I will often print four to a page on a nice sturdy card stock, they are perfect for card bases! I store them all in a ziplock bag and pull them out often for card making and mixed media projects. For…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here! Have you ever thought about how you start a layout? Are you consistent or do you mix it up? I mix it up! Sometimes I love to start with a sketch or a particular photo may inspire me and sometimes I like to choose the product first. The project I’m sharing today was all about using my stash of Stampers Anonymous stamps! Please note…no patterned paper was harmed in the process! I pulled out a sheet of CSM Super Stock [primed with a thin layer of gesso] and brayered on some with some Distress Inks. I love the texture the brayer creates! I then removed some of the ink with a stencil and baby wipe.Next, I layered on some stamps of various patterns. This process of making a background is so fun and very relaxing. In the wise words of Seth Apter…if you don’t love…

  Hi Creative Scrapbooker Fans!!!! Pam Bray here sharing “Dream Big Dreams” Mixed Media Card featuring Wild Whisper A Girl With Flair Watercolor patterned paper and Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Rock Candy Embossing Powder. Creating the background paper for this mixed media card is super easy using a Gelli Art Press Printing Press, DecoArt Paint, and brayer.  1. Begin by applying Titanium paint to the top of the Gel Printing Press;  move around with brayer. Add a bit of paint here and there to achieve the colors on the press you like. 2. Press white cardstock to the top; pull off and set to one side. Repeat with a clean piece of cardstock. 3. Stamp background collage stamp to top of the prepared paper using Titanium White and Cadmium Red to the top. 4. Stamp here and there. Adhere prepared paper to Wild Whisper Watercolor Paper to green cardstock. Adhere…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

Welcome to another exciting technique filled Tuesday with the Team.  Nicole Wright here sharing how to use a gel plate to enhance your pattern paper for a mixed media vibe.  Using pattern paper as a “base layer” to your next project you can create more depth with paint.  Thus, coordinating your paper and paints to anything you create.  Follow along and see how I created a Mixed Media Floral Wreath. 1 For this technique, I will be using Media Assemblage pattern paper (more info on that at the bottom of this post) and Dina Wakely Media Acrylic Paint by Ranger Ink. Apply paint to the Gel Plate as seen above.  You can brayer the paint to blend or use your finger.  Add texture to the paint with texture combs. 2 Once the paint is blended and textured, lay the paper right over top.  Rub your hand across the paper to…

  Hi Pam here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog with a tutorial on how to create a Coffee Time Mixed Media Record using Rock Candy Embossing Powder and Coffee Stamps from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies! Begin by apply embossing paste over your favorite stencil. Add  Rock Candy Embossing Powder to the top; heat set. Add a bit of wash tape here and there on the record; dry brush white paint over the top. Emboss Boozy Bear Chipboard: Circle Envy with Rock Candy Embossing Powder. Adhere to top of Wild Whisper Watercolour patterned paper. Adhere to top of prepared recorded with adhesive. Apply embossing ink here and there on record; sprinkle Rock Candy Embossing Powder over top. Heat set. (Warping of record will occur if you are to close with a heat gun but it will give it added character.)Continue adding different colors of the Rock Candy here and there using…

It is great fun filling your art journal but what about the cover? Hey makers, Nicole Wright here and in this post, I will be showing you how to add bling to your Art Journal cover.  I have adorned my cover with Finnabair Mixed Media products from Prima Marketing Inc.  It’s all about the layers so take that creative leap and express yourself. I used my Iris Tapestry stencil as my base layer.  Here, you can add patterns randomly to your journal using Art Extravagance Golden Nugget and the Mixed Media Silicon Brush. A layer of dictionary paper is applied with Soft Gloss Gel.  Spray the page with a little water until damp, tear and apply the Soft Gloss Gel on the top and bottom of the paper. I created flowers using the Cherry Blossom Mould using hot glue in a pinch.  There are a lot of Moulds to check…
