Hello friends! Welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker blog.  It’s Karan Gerber here today to share a rusty tag project with you featuring Prima Marketing Rust Paste. I hope you like what I have designed for you today. I have been feeling somewhat rusty lately, LOL and by saying that I mean, I have been using the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing on a lot of my projects lately.  This little jar of goodness is really easy to use, you just need to apply it in a dabbing motion, and heat set or let dry and this is what the end result looks like. It’s super easy to use and the effect is pretty incredible. Here is a sneak peek. The base of this tag is a Tim Holtz Etc tag measuring 4.5 x 8. I then covered it with gel medium and placed Rice Paper from Ciao Bella  ( Oxido…

Good Morning Creative Scrapbookers! It’s a gorgeous day in Alberta, after some not so nice ones! I thought it would be nice to celebrate this beautiful morning with a creative space share from here, in our own stomping grounds! Today’s ‘Where You Create’ is from Paula Doran, in the lovely community of Sherwood Park. I’m a bit biased because Sherwood Park is my home as well! Paula is sharing a few photos of her beautiful space that has evolved after several years of water damage in her basement! She writes: “I have attached ‘Where I Create’ photos, although this is only about 1/4 of my crafting supplies! [LOL] The rest are in a storage room. I LOVE my space because, from 2010 – 2017 I did not have an area that was inspiring. We had water in our basement. Until we could repair and re-do our basement, I had a…

Hello everyone, Kim here today with a mixed media blog share! In the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, Connie Nichol, our frugal scrapbooker, has an article all about using vintage sewing patterns. This featured article shows lots of fun ways to incorporate patterns onto cards and layouts. I thought I would share how I used them in a project! I have done up a 2-page mixed media layout in my Prima Travelers Mixed Media Notebook. This fun  little notebook has various types of paper to work on; black & cream mixed media, kraft, cardstock and a heavy vellum. I have adhered some of the tissue paper pattern on the left side of my project and the packaging on the right side using Prima Soft Matte Gel. I choose to paint a thin layer of watered down Mint Impasto over the entire project to tone the red down and ‘push’…

Hello everyone, Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a fun process video creating a Travellers Notebook featuring a variety of products by  Prima  Marketing. Travellers Notebooks are trending and I can see why.  These compact notebooks can be used for a variety of applications.  You can create a bullet journal, use them for writing, note-taking, sketching, mixed media, take them to crafty classes to name a few uses.  Using Eileen Hull’s Journal Scoreboard die is perfect to fit the inserts or add pages.  This journal just returned from Spain and I filled it with inspiration. Watch to see how I create this Travellers Notebook.  This quick video shows the techniques I use to create textures and layers with paints and mediums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EO_C6OFBYI Here is a closer look at the details you can create with various Prima Marketing Finnabair products.  I really love the inside of…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick mixed media page share. Did you know our current issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a 13 page feature dedicated to mixed media! There are so many gorgeous art journal pages, scrapbooking layouts and cards ready to inspire you to pull out some products that might not be in your comfort zone. I encourage you to try, it’s so fun! Here is a recent art journal page I made using many of my favourite Ranger products. They are often my go to mixed media products because they overlap well with my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking! My page started out as gel print I had made a while back using my Ranger Gel Plate and Dylusions paints. I layered on some stencils and stamps, which were coloured with Chameleon Pens. I added some washi tape and stickles for some more texture and…

Mixed Media is all about trusting the process.  It’s always messy in the middle and we have to let the creativity take over.  Nicole here and I am sooooo excited to play with Prima.  For this tutorial, I am using Finnabair.  This is my first time exploring the textures, shimmer, and detail of these fabulous mediums and paints.  I started by applying some torn book pages with 3D Gloss Gel Transparent making sure to apply an even coat over the paper.  Add a layer with the Offset Dots Clear Stamp using permanent ink, Ranger ink Archival Jet Black. Add a layer of texture with Plaster Paste and mix in a little mint- green Patina Effect Paste to tint your Plaster Paste. Layer the 6×9 Passiflora Stencil and apply the Plaster Paste in an even layer. While the Plaster Paste was drying I cut “trust” with Sizzix XL Typo Lower die.  Adhere…

Hi, there everyone, Nathalie DeSousa with you today with a very fun and colorful Christmas layout that celebrates those Sweet Good Times the season brings. For today’s post,  I wanted to work with lots of colors to document a picture of my kids building their gingerbread house.  So, I pulled my Vicki Boutin mixed media products and started working on the background for this page. It all started with a foundation paper that had been gessoed;   I played with some Vicki Boutin Art crayons to create the watercolor background on the page.  The color combination was inspired by the mints that are slowly showing around our house lately. While the background dried, all the gingerbread houses were cut from Caramel colored cardstock using a cut file from Handipaper, and then backed with white mixed media paper.   In addition, the small mints that surround the cutouts were created by stamping the circles…

Kim Gowdy here today with a fun little, mixed media tag to share. I love that all these wonderful mixed media products have oozed into the scrapbooking and card making world. Do you? I believe that any hobby that we stick with for a long time needs to challenge us to keep us interested and engaged. Scrapbooking continues to do just that for me…from my photography to trying new products and techniques, this industry still holds my interest after 12 years! Let’s take a peek at my tag and process. Let’s create the base! Thanks for joining me. I love how my tag turned out. I’m not sure yet how I will use. It may become a scrapbook page element, I may tuck it into an art journal or I may use it on a bottle of wine to give to my hubby to celebrate a milestone anniversary. The photo…

Hello! Kim here with a quick layout sharing that was inspired by the Creative Scrapbooker February Sketchy Challenge. I did a very literal take on the sketch; but had so much fun doing it! This silly subject needed bold colours and contrast! Instead of using papers, my back ground was made using Dylusions paint and the Ranger gel plates. I started with piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, this 110lb card-stock can handle the mixed media product! The Ranger gel plates come in four very useable sizes! I took the small rectangle and masked off the area I didn’t want painted. I added my paints, spread with a brayer and made patterns with a Dina Wakey stamp and a Ranger texture tool. My swirls are done with an Art Foamie stamp and white acrylic paint! My bold title and hashtags are done with American Craft Thickers. My journaling was done with…
