Hello everyone – Kelly Klapstein here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Fall is the time of year when I like to change up the home decor and add some new hand lettering projects to celebrate the season. I have been inspired by our resident colouring artist Betty Hung, who illustrates and colours like no one I have ever seen! So I decided to design a hand lettered Autumn-themed piece and use my Chameleon Pens products to colour it. I have used the Chameleon Color Tone pens before, but I haven’t used their Color Tones pencils…and this rainbow of pencils are just gorgeous in the box. There are 25 double-ended pencils, which adds up to 50 colours! For every hand lettered project, my first step is to sketch a design roughly with pencil.

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here with my layout for the October Sketchy Challenge.

In September, Kelly Klapstein has been Guest Designer over at the Quietfire Design blog.  On Friday she shared her second project, a gorgeous Thanksgiving card. SUPPLIES: Quietfire Design stamps and die; Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock; FabScraps patterned paper; Clearsnap Ink; Brother ScanNCut; May Arts Ribbon twine. Kelly used a beautiful Quietfire Design stamp set called “To Give Thanks” along with a “Thanks” die.  Click HERE to visit the Quietfire Design blog to learn more about how this card was made. The 3D easel card base and pumpkin were designed using the Brother ScanNCut machine. Here is Kelly’s video tutorial on how she created these with the ScanNCut.

Hi all! It’s Cathy Caines here to share some fun Halloween projects featuring Stampin’ Up! The ghosts and goblins have been out to play in my backyard since September began. I love to create for Halloween!!   It could be that I get giddy at the thought of candy or that I have an excuse to search Pinterest for cool costume ideas. Regardless, if you have Halloween on your mind, here are some fun ideas using Stampin’ Up! products. First, you need a banner – this banner was created using the Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit. I used white Staz-On and stencils to create the word ‘BOO’, as well as rubbed it around the edges. This gave it a more spooky feel but chalk would also do the trick. My daughter would say that treats are the most important thing and most definitely the priority. I couldn’t agree more. I created this…
