Hi Connie NIchol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring the new Wild Rose collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This company has such beautiful products and the wild rose collection is a great addition to anyone’s craft stash.  As usual, the collection includes coordinating paper, stamps, dies and dimensional shaping molds, with the wild roses coming in both small and large sizes.  This makes them super versatile because you can use the single flowers as I did below, or layer many sizes together to make a flower full of  dimension.  Heartfelt Creations papers go so well with pictures from my childhood.  This one is scanned from a 35 mm slide from 1963.  I remember the scratchy couch and my favourite stuffed bunny whose name was Teddy. You can create your roses and leaves by stamping with the cling mount stamps and colouring,  or I used the coordinating dies to cut them…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here today with a fun camping inspired layout that I hope you’ll enjoy! I am blessed with a craft room and lots of supplies to choose from. That may sound amazing, but honestly at times I think it stalls my creativity, giving me too many choices. On this particular scrapbooking session, I narrowed down my focus and picked a few products to work with, which in turn forces the other stuff out of the wayThe products I choose to work with were, Echo Park’s Little Lumberjack collection, Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essentials and MultiCraft glitter. I started by adhering 2 sheets of patterned paper together using Glue Dots Adhesive Sheets. Using the die from Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essentials set, I cut out two pages for my layout. I didn’t stress over which directions the tabs would be. They could have been high or low on…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I had an afternoon of happy accidents recently when I was playing with Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. I ended up creating a card and a scrapbook page. I started with my MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap. I wanted to see if I could add the Flock Transfer Sheets to MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap using the Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. The Transfer Gel DUO works two ways; you can transfer flocking or foil using heat from a laminator OR pressure from a die-cutting machine. Transfer Gel DUO is a permanent transfer medium that dries clear and remains tacky for easy use. I spread the Transfer Gel DUO through stencils and laid a piece of the Flock Transfer Sheet on top and ran it through my die cut machine. A…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with a couple of cards I created using Stampers Anonymous cling mounted stamps and wooden mat minis designed by Wendy Vecchi.   The front door stamp totally  captured my imagination – it’s so versatile!  You can make it any colour you want, you can stamp it on the  wooden mat minis to add dimension, you can decorate it with pots, flowers or anything else you can imagine to make your door welcoming.  I was totally feeling a red door decorated with assorted plants so I added some MultiCraft paint and stickers to bring my vision to life. Here’s the stamp set and the coordinating wood veneer mini mats.  They are lots of fun.   Add one flower pot or many to your front door. The pearlescent paint by Color Factory (a MultiCraft brand) is very pretty with a lovely shimmer and the Forever in Time  cactus stickers have…

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.

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…
