Ghoultide Greetings Mixed Media Wall Hanging By Katelyn Grosart Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! With Halloween right around the corner I thought that it would be fun to share with you how to create a mixed media wall hanging piece as a perfect home décor addition to any spot in your home. Using stamps, charms and embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and pairing them with Ranger Ink products, I was able to create a fun piece. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I have a tutorial for you, so that you can recreate it in the comforts of your own home. To start, you’ll need a 5 ½” x 5 ½” wood piece. I managed to pick one up that was already meant to be used as a wall hanging. Once you have your piece in front of you, you’ll need to apply 2…

It’s that time of year again — time for my annual trip to IKEA to get dorm appropriate stuff for “the kid”….  And, if I’m perfectly honest, it becomes more in an inspiration station for me! Wondering around the store I came across a little bin with some paper frames shaped as buildings in them.   The GLON set was meant to be coloured with markers…  but I had other plans for them!!  …and I dug out “the kid’s” grade 12 picture to show you!

Happy first day of Fall!  Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I’m excited to share my most favorite time of year… Fall! I just got all my Sizzix dies to play with and I went for the Dashing Deer first knowing I was somehow going to create a fall project.  Well I usually have some idea of what I may create.  This one needed lots of leaves and burlap. Onto the fun! I decided to layer up the antlers with the mat board cut 2 times and a layer of Sizzix Leather Paper.  I cut the head and upper body with some scrap Core paper.  For the leaves I made my own paper using watercolor paper. I grabbed my Ranger Distress Spray Stains peeled paint, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.  Spritz and spray.  Apply matching distress inks to intensify the colour. Now that the paper is dry I can cut…

Superhero Shirt Tutorial Hey crafters, Nicole here and I’m back to share these awesome shirts I made for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in Calgary this coming weekend.  The theme is Super Hero’s!  I have been humming and hawing about this for months!  I didn’t want a costume and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on shirts I knew I wouldn’t wear again.  So I made my own… for $10 in supplies! Lets create stencils using you’re die cuts, paints and a little imagination! Step one buy some shirts and wash them.  I grabbed mine at Michaels, $3 each.  I picked up this sticky back roll of vinyl stuff at the dollar store, 7ft for $3.  One Cricut machine for cutting out letters and speech bubbles. I needed to create a stencil so I removed the images and cut carefully cut the images out with an X-Acto knife.  Carefully…

Hello everyone! Jayme Loge here today! For my day job, I work in a school as an education assistant. In previous years, my assignment has been to provide literacy support to several classes. This meant working with several teachers and a rotating group of kids. Due to student needs, my assignment this past year has been in one classroom. It was a wonderful experience to work closely with one teacher and student group. I decided to get the kids together to work on a special end of the year gift for the teacher. They ended up creating this wonderful canvas! Supplies Used: Canvas- Michaels 16×20 Stencils- Donna Downey (Keyhole Splatter, Bubbles, Halftone Dots); Tim Holtz (Speckles, Lace) Paint- Ranger Dylusions Stamps- Frog’s Whiskers Ink Ink- Clearsnap We worked for weeks in a secret location, kids giving up their recess time in turn so everyone got a chance to contribute.
