All the way from South Africa, FabScraps always delivers a gorgeous shabby chic display at CHA.  This show was no exception.  Wow. Their paper crafted dresses on mannequins are simply amazing and showcase their new collections. Just look at the incredible details… Up close… The metal embellishments and zipper edges you see on this particular dress above are from their new line of products, aptly titled “Addictive Scrapping Goodies” Four new collections were debuted at the show, and each set of papers has matching chipboard die cuts. Here is Retro Twist, with a vibrant purple colour palette and fun geometric patterns… Then there is Beachcomber, a nautical theme… Country Living has beautiful feminine floral patterns, along with vintage images of table settings… The French Heritage collection includes some lovely peacock colours and graphics… And of course, there…

Thinking of You Card by Jayme Loge First the steps: Start by stamping a background onto some cardstock, using waterproof ink. I used Clearsnap’s Archival Dye inks for this step. I stamped two images in the background (the small dots are a Hero Arts for Doodlebug Designs stamp, and the script is by Stampin’ Up!). Next, get ready for some inky fun! I took a used dryer sheet and cut it into 2″ squares, and spritzed them with three colours of Clearsnap  Smooch Spritz.

Have you seen these beautiful intricate dies from Spellbinders?    They are just gorgeous, and with a few little tricks, easy to use. I absolutely love this little die called ‘Cattails’.  Although I have to say, I’m a prairie girl, and while I’m sure the die could look like cattails, to me, it looks like wheat.  So that’s what I used it for.  Stalks of ripe wheat, blowing in the breeze. The first time I tried using this die, I discovered it was not quite as simple as all of the other Spellbinders dies I have used over the years.  Because it is so intricate and highly detailed, I had a few issues with it cutting all the way through, and then had trouble actually  getting the paper out of the die.   I had a quick look on the internet for some suggestions on how to make it easier.   I found…

Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! Kelly here, and I’m really excited to share with you today here on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog.  One of my favourite lines I enjoy working with is Graphic 45  They launched their designs in the paper crafting world 4 years ago, and since day one, I have been eager to get my crafty hands on their products.  Their beautiful patterned papers make a vintage statement, and every new release inspires creativity. Some of the collections I’ve loved in the past six months are “A Ladies Diary,” “Happy Haunting,” “Bird Song,” “Nutcracker Sweet” and the newest calendar line called “Place in Time.” The new calendar line “Place in Time” has so many paper crafting possibilites.  I decided to design a 12 x 12 calendar album as a birthday present for my mother, using photos of herself from her own scrapbooks.  In fact, I’m now teaching this album as…
