Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a flowery layout featuring assorted MultiCraft products, Elizabeth Craft Designs Way with Words dies and a lovely quote from Quietfire Design. As a frugal scrapbooker, I frequently check out the craft aisle of my local dollar stores for affordable Forever in Time, Color Factory, Krafty Kids and Craft Medley products.  These are all brand names under the MultiCraft umbrella. The layout was totally inspired by this beautiful Forever in Time foiled flower embellishments.  There is a lovely variety of colours and sizes in the package.  Excellent value for decorating a variety of cards and layouts. I also used some MultiCraft patterned paper that I had in my stash and put the whole thing together with Multi-Craft liquid and foam adhesives. These foam squares are perfect under the flower die cuts to add a little dimension. The title is two die cuts from the Elizabeth…

Yahooo! Christmas card making season is around the corner OR maybe it is right now!  Christmas truly is one of my MOST favorite times of the year…and without a doubt, the card making that goes on in the next few months is sooooooooo INSPIRING! Recently our design team member, Kerry Engel, was playing with some Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel and she came up with this SPARKLING card. Kerry used the Carta Bella Christmas Market Holly stencil to create the background. Along with the Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel. For a final touch she added some MultiCraft Forever in Time gem stickers! AWESOME!  Kerry is a MORNING crafter! Every morning before she heads off to work she takes some time in her craft room. Once or twice a week she shares what she has been working on,  within the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine…

Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp. I stamped it to the left side of a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. My sentiment was stamped separately and cut with a circle punch. I colored the image with my NEW Chameleon Fineliner Pens, I adore them! Like their big sisters, the Chameleon Pens, the Fineliners can provide tonal, colour transitions like magic! Think how beautiful your journals and planners can be! Here, however I have coloured my image using dots and lines – it is such a FUN way to colour smaller images! I’ve added a narrow strip of patterned paper to…

MulltiCraft Forever in Time was the starting point for my “Happy Memories” 12X12 scrapbook layout. Who can resist a jar full of flowers? I was feeling a bit playful in my studio and these charming  MultiCraft Forever in Time bottles filled with flowers were the inspiration for my whimsical vision. To build my base layer I stamp some Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink on a non-porous surface (plastic sheet)  then I spray some water on the ink. After you spray the ink with water you pick up the plastic sheet and dab it onto the paper. I dapped one colour at a time. I like the look of tone-on-tone so using the same colour of Ranger Oxide Inks and the MultiCraft Forever in Time floral stamps I stamp a variety of flowers on top of the background. I always like to add in small details and doodles to my…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog excited to share with you a fun little technique to make your stamped images POP with little or no effort using a white opaque pigment pen by Ranger. I am going to call this technique – white pen painting. LOL!  I am slightly addicted. To create this layout I used a variety of Stampers Anonymous stamps, Ranger products, Glue Dots Adhesives, MultiCraft Craft Decor burlap ribbon, and wooden embellishments. I challenged myself with this layout to see how many different ways I could use stamps. To be honest I only started using stamps a few years ago when I got into mixed media. This particular group of stamps really inspires me, and they work so well with my Europe photos. When all was said and done I used my stamps in 3 different ways. I used the following…

Hello, Connie Nichol here this morning with a layout featuring a number of supplies from my local dollar store.  This was actually an extra project leftover from my recent article in the spring 2019 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  As part of the process for creating each of my articles, I spread out all relevant supplies and imagine the possibilities.   My brain churns with ideas and I usually end up creating way more projects than there is space to publish.  This is a very messy stage and the floor in both my craft room and the adjacent living room are usually covered with little piles of supplies.  Ha!  Just imagine a landscape of all sorts of dollar store craft items – pipe cleaners, pompoms, stickers, adhesives, gems and so on.  One of the items that I really wanted to create something with was a package of mirror stickers from Forever…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring stamps, dies and patterned paper from the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection.  I adore the coneflowers and other blooms that are its focus.  In addition to patterned paper, there are three stamp sets with matching dies that are part of the collection.  I’ve used the set called ‘Blossoming Coneflower’.  I stamped the images with Ranger archival black ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.    These pens were absolutely perfect for this project – I could achieve gradation of colour in the petals and leaves with a single pen.  Supplies Used:  Heartfelt Creations patterned paper, stamps and dies, MultiCraft flakes, glue, letter stickers and wooden butterfly, Chameleon Color Tone pens, Ranger ink, Glue Dots Adhesives, corrugated cardboard, doily. I used the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection and Blossoming Coneflower stamp with coordinating die. I stamped the Heartfelt Creations stamp using Ranger…
