Hello, Connie Nichol here today with two simple shimmery cards featuring Always and Forever, two of the new dies released by Elizabeth Craft Designs and designed by Suzanne Cannon of Quietfire Design.  You can use them separately as I did here, put them together with an ampersand or add hearts from the Calligraphic Elements 2 dies.  These would be great for wedding or anniversary cards. These were very simple to make but I love the way they turned out.  I started by dabbing Izink pigment ink (manufactured by Aladine and distributed through Clearsnap) through an Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil to make the ‘patterned’ paper.  You could use any ink but I love the shimmer and the gorgeous colour of the Izink ink.      Then, I dry embossed Shimmer Sheetz with a Close to My Heart embossing folder to give the sheetz some pattern and texture.   The CTMH embossing…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout that features Graphic 45 patterned paper from the Enchanted Forest line and the Dream die manufactured by Elizabeth Crafts Designs and designed by Quietfire Designs. This was a very simple layout to create.  I just layered different pieces of Graphic 45 patterned paper from the 6×6 and 8×8 Enchanted Forest paper pads, putting some of the smaller pieces on with dimensional foam adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and embellishing with machine stitching and bits of May Arts ribbon.  The page title is a die manufactured by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Perfect for a page about a boy and his books.   The beautiful calligraphic word dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs inspire me to create many layouts. I also added a couple of butterflies cut with the Sizzix Eclips 2 using from Quietfire Designs Butterfly Heart Card cutting file shown below.  The file is…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a summer layout featuring digital cut files and a stamp from Quietfire Design.    A few years ago my boys decided to canoe (i.e. float) down the North Saskatchewan River.  They launched in Edmonton, and I was instructed to pick them up downstream in three hours time.  Unfortunately, the river was quite low and the current slow, and it took a lot longer than the predicted three hours.  Of course, my husband had no cell phone with him so I had no idea where the canoe was.  I waited and I waited and they finally showed up…… phew.  They have never repeated that particular adventure. I love the versatility of having an electronic die cutting machine.  It’s amazing.  Need a canoe to embellish a canoeing layout?  Presto, wave the magic wand and cut a canoe, paddles and water with your Sizzix Eclips 2.  Any…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a heritage wedding layout featuring FabScraps papers and embellishments, a beautiful Remember word and stitched circle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs and a romantic stamp from Quietfire Designs. I found this photograph of my grandparents wedding in a shoe box.  Both of my grandparents passed away quite some time ago and I think it is important to capture the who, what, when before all the details are forgotten.  Actually, if the date of the wedding was not written on the back of the photo, I would have had no idea when they got married. I was totally inspired by the May Sketch by Kelly Klapstein in the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketchy challenge.  Sketches are such a fast way to get started on a new layout.  I flipped this one and used a paper doily from the dollar store for the circular element.  This sketch…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with an easy layout about one of my favourite flowers.  Oh, how I adore the smell of these tiny flowers which appear reliably in my flower bed every May.  Lily of the Valley plants can spread quite aggressively so I keep them segregated in their own flower bed on a shady side of the garage.   I was inspired to create this layout by the new Elizabeth Craft Designs 4 seasons words dies and a most beautiful lily of the valley cut file from Quietfire Design. I cut the lily of the valley embellishments out of CTMH cardstock with my Sizzix Eclips2 electronic die cutting machine.  The CTMH cardstock cuts beautifully, it is just the right weight. The page background is made by spritzing some Clearsnap Silver Foil Smooch Spritz over a Crafter’s Workshop template. The title is cut out with several Elizabeth Craft Designs…

Hello, it’s Connie Nichol here today with a quick layout featuring the Simple Stories ‘So Rad’ line.  As the mother of boys, I adore the colours and patterns.  It’s so bright and energetic.   The word dies ‘Live’ and ‘Laugh’ from Elizabeth Craft Designs are perfect accents to many scrapbook pages, especially those that feature whitewater rafting.  Haha.  The Rocky Mountains are about a four or five hour drive from my house and we try to get to Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia every couple of years.  I really love it there.  The last couple of trips my family has spent a day on the river with Kootenay River Runners.  So much fun and it is great to introduce our boys to all sorts of different experiences. I created this layout using the Simple Stories – So Rad Collection   I used a Quietfire Design stamp to embellish the page.…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a project featuring Heartfelt Creations Italian Riviera paper collection and Italian Grapevines die.  I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days last fall in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada last fall and these products were the perfect fit for photos I took during a wine tour.  Did you know there was almost 100 wineries in Ontario?  Wow.  What a beautiful part of the country. The layout went together very quickly.  The patterned paper is so pretty you don’t need to add much in the way of embellishment.  I die cut some grape vines from the light green coloured sheet in the paper collection to make a border along the bottom of the page and added a stamped quote from Quietfire Design.  The calligraphic quote fits perfectly on a Heartfelt Creations journalling card. Supplies:  Heartfelt Creations patterned paper and…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring a Quietfire Design stamp and an assortment of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and patterned paper.  I love using quotes on my scrapbook pages and am often inspired by the stamps I find on the Quietfire Designs website. Elizabeth Craft Designs has just released some 6×6 paper packs featuring close up phototographs taken by Els van de Burgt of stone, wood and metal.  Pretty cool idea! For the page title, I just used the word ‘Happy’ from the Happy Anniversary die set and sponged it with some Clearsnap ink to take the edge off of the white cardstock.   The Stitched Oval dies are one of my favourite ECD sets.  The sizes and shapes seem to be just right for stamped sentiments and I adore the perforated edges.  A nice elegant look with no fuss.  The little pail and shovel I used as…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a simple scrapbook layout featuring a beautiful patterned paper line from Creative Memories stamps and digital cut files from Quietfire Design cut with the Sizzix Eclips 2. and some stitching with the Brother Sewing Machine The scrapbooking process is a little different for everyone, but when I start with a Quietfire Design quote stamp, I am totally inspired by the quote and go from there.  I looked through my photos and found this one of my friend Jackie with a massive hydrangea bush from 2013 that I thought would do the quote justice.  Next, I selected the beautiful Creative Memories Watercolour Paper Pack and Watercolor Love Embellishments to form the basis of the layout.  The soft colours and patterns are just beautiful.  Although romantic, the papers work for a lot of other photographs too. Lastly, I considered how I might accent the page with…
