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…

I have made 2020 the year that I take the planner plunge. I have two planners going at the moment; one for every day and a Vacation scrapbook-planner for an upcoming trip. For my vacation planner,  I’m using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Champaign colored album with the powder blue inside. I like the pop of blue on the inside! I have a confession to make. After only a few weeks of creating planner pages… I’m totally addicted! I am loving the challenge of figuring out how many different ways I can use the dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essential line. There are pages, tags and many embellishment dies to choose from. You can create planner pages and tags out of a lot of different materials. I came home recently with this fabulous paper shopping bag: I knew the minute I saw it that I had to reuse the map…

Hello and welcome to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Tuesday with the Team feature. I am Jayme Loge and I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! Starting with the Summer 2019 issue, the magazine is publishing a new ongoing article called “Planners Gonna Plan”, researched and written by yours truly. I’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of planners so I can share with readers and I am learning a lot of great organizational tips too! I was given the opportunity to play with some new American Crafts ‘Kelly Creates’ products. I love the marker sets! If you know me personally, you know what a funny thing that is for me to say. I have such a love/hate relationship with coloring; I do enjoy it and find it relaxing, but I don’t have the time to really invest in developing my craft and…

Hello, 2019 and a new year filled with opportunities and new beginnings! January is a month where we naturally think about new goals and what we want to achieve in the coming year. For me, I’d like to slow down in 2019. But what does that mean? I’ve had to think about the ways in which I can make that happen like device-free time, enjoying the outside more often and finding time to read. I love the process of evaluating goals so be sure to make time for yourself to do the same. Stampin’ Up! has a monthly subscription called Paper Pumpkin where you are sent everything you need to create a crafty project. These are great especially when you are going on vacation or the cabin. You can grab it and go! That’s exactly what I did while vacationing in Florida this Holiday Season. Below is a picture of…

Hello again everyone! Leah O’Neil here with you on the blog today, with the last post of my Creative Planners blog series. Over the past year, I’ve enjoyed showing you some creative ways to use and decorate your planners. Today, I’m showing you how I use  creative planners to document gratitude. I have dedicated whole journals and creative planners to this in the past, which is definitely a fun and fulfilling way to fill pages. In this case however, I had a week in my weekly spiral planner that I didn’t use, so the pages were blank. It’s funny how this happens sometimes (to me) – I had an incredibly busy week that week but I kept forgetting my planner and just ended up making loads of to do lists instead. Whenever I have weeks like this where I don’t use my planner as much, for whatever reason, I like…

Hello creative friends! Leah O’Neil here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Welcome back to my creative planning blog series where I show you a variety of planners and creative ways to use them. Today I want to show you one of my favorite new products from Simple Stories, the Vintage Floral travelers notebooks. Travelers notebooks are so portable and easy to carry with you anywhere. You can load them up with notebook inserts that you can customize in SO MANY ways! I used mine as a travel journal on my recent trip to Oregon and Southern California. I was able to use it to easily jot down memories and store away little mementos I picked up while on the trip. I didn’t have a lot of time for decorating my pages while on vacation, but I made sure to take lots of notes about how we spent our…

Welcome back fellow creative planners! This is Leah O’Neil from the Simple Stories creative team, joining you on the blog again today for the next installment of my Creative Planning blog series. In this series, it is my goal to demonstrate to you a variety of ways you can use and decorate your Carpe Diem planners.  So far, I’ve shown you how I set up an overall wellness planner, and some of the ways I decorate my day-to-day life planner. Today’s post is about using a planner for memory keeping.Documenting memories is very important to me and brings me a lot of joy. These days, I don’t create many 12×12 scrapbook pages because I do all of my memory keeping in my planner and a traveler’s notebook. I like the ease of incorporating memory keeping into my planner since I already have it with me most of the time. You…

Hello everyone – Tracy McLennon here today! Are you a planner lover like I am? Even before decorative planners were “a thing” in the paper crafting world, I enjoyed keeping organized with a paper planner. I never went digital. I like to doodle and play with fonts, so I made ordinary planners my own over time.But now, look at all of the pretty things available at our fingertips to make our everyday lives just a little bit cuter. So I thought I would share what my planner pages look like before I begin the month. Over time I add little notes here and there, appointments, memories and to-do lists.Project Recipe: Simple Stories- Carpe Diem Collection: Planner, Epoxy Metal Clips, Washi Tape and Binder Rings Simple Stories- Domestic Bliss Collection: patterned paper, clear stickers, sticker sheets Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- EZ RunnerI love how the squares in the stickers sheets from…
