Hello again! Kim here with a quick layout share using some of the gorgeous papers from Paper House Productions’ Sun Drenched paper pad! This collection is full of beautiful colours and patterns…perfect for beach days of summer or winter holidays!I used this month’s Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for my layout, our sketches are always a great source of inspiration! Once I chose the papers to work with I alter my page a bit with some stencilling using Ranger’s Distress Oxide ink and a stencil from MultiCraft. I used a couple of the 4×6 accent cards from the paper pad to layer with my photos, I love how they kind of become an extension of my photos in colour and pattern! I used a bit of Distress Oxide Ink on the paper edges to bring the focus in towards the pics! I added some Forever in Time Puffy Letter…

Kim here today sharing another fun coffee card. This simple card can be used for many different occasions, toss in a coffee card and it also makes a great gift! I used lots of fun products that played so well together to make this card, starting with CSM Superstock as my card base. I transferred the Brutus Monroe – Dry Brush foil onto the Brutus Monroe – Coffee Rings toner sheets. Both of these products are made by Therm-o-Web. The foil is easily applied to the toner sheet using a hot laminator like mine from Royal Sovereign. Next, I blended some Distress Oxide inks over the foiled toner sheet. The foil resists the ink, so the shimmer is not lost! I like to buff it a bit with a paper towel once the ink is set. I stamped my sentiment and coffee cup from the “But First, Coffee” set from…

Happy Tuesday everyone! Is the sun shining in your neck of the woods and possibly sending a spring vibe to your world? It’s Kim here with a Tuesday With the Team layout share! My layout is NOT very springy but since we are officially still in winter, here I go! I used our January Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for my layout. Rotating it to the left seemed to work best for me. I was thrilled to pull out my Carta Bella ‘Cabin Fever’ collection!  From the first time I set my eyes on this collection I LOVED IT. It definitely gives off a cozy, winter vibe and was perfect for the photos I wanted to share. This collection has the sweetest accent elements in chipboard, stickers and journal cards [12×12 sheet].I love how my completed layout came together so quickly with this sketch a paper collection. Don’t be…

Hello! Kim here with a quick share, my layout based on our December Sketchy Challenge! Those who go to retreats with me know that I CANNOT focus and get things done. I chat too much, can’t find what I need and “squirrel” around seeing what everyone else is doing! In the moment, I hate that I can’t scrapbook while retreating, but I come home so inspired…it’s just what I need to unwind and get the creative juices flowing! My friend Kerry gave me the creative task of working with the negative space of her cut-out for a project. Based on the shape…I’m sure it was for her sketch inspired layout as well! MY FAVOURITE RANGER PRODUCTS I taped it onto my blank, bright-white Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Superstock and started playing with my Ranger Distress Oxide inks! It was the perfect task for my squirrelling brain…no real thought required, just swirling ink…

Welcome to another WHERE YOU CREATE post. If you are a fan of Tim Holtz, Ranger or Sizzix I know you will love the craft space we are about to share. Even if your creative style differs, we are confident you too will swoon over Nicole Wright’s scrapbooking room. Her craft room is not big…but WOWSERS, it packs a punch! In Nicole’s Words I have a very small but mighty craft space. This 8×12 room is designed to maximize space and functionality with storage on walls.  I create on an 80+ year old oak desk belonging to my husband’s grandfather. Everything is designed around this vintage centrepiece. Wire baskets hold my stamps and apple crate boxes house my extensive Sizzix library.  IKEA wire shelves are perfect for all my Ranger inky things. Glass jars are full of seasonal embellishments, twine and paper dolls. Floating shelves show off my favorite pieces I…

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Kim here with a layout share using products from Wild Whisper Designs, Ranger Inks, Southern Ridge Trading Company and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I loved the ‘Adventure Collection’ from Wild Whisper Designs from the moment I started to see layouts being created with it shared online. It is so well suited for outdoorsy photos! I paired the papers up with some bear photos I had from a few years back! I am really happy with the finished result! I designed and cut my title using my electronic cutting machine and was thrilled that by chance it lined up perfectly with the design of the paper I placed behind for contrast…giving it a bit more visual texture! My journaling was done using a Ranger Ink Dylusions paint pen – you should try them out if you haven’t…I LOVE them! My bear and tree elements are from Southern…

Kim here with my take on the February sketch. This is not my best work, but I had fun with this layout. I feel like I have been in a creative funk since January and am slowly coming off the couch back into my craft room! I am NOT a lover of winter and the darkness that comes with it! Working with a sunset picture seemed a good choice! I just let myself play and put ZERO pressure on the results. I added a thin layer of Dina Wakley Media Gesso to my CSM Superstock and then “messy” coloured my circles with Distress Crayons. Once my colour was on my page, I used a water brush to blend it and even it out. My spiral line and writing was done with a Dylusions Paint Pen – I LOVE THESE!!!!! I used a Magenta stencil with Black Soot Distress Ink for…

Kim here with a cute card share before I drop it in the mail! It’s no secret among our team that I love Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea collection! The colours, the stamps and dies speak to my love of all things ocean. Here’s a quick card I put together for my Aunt’s upcoming birthday using patterned paper and dies from the collection and some Core’dinations cardstock. So many different products were used to pull the card together, let me share them in a few detail shots. I have used Clearsnap’s Smooch and Top Boss to add colour and a bit more depth  to the flower. Jackie showed you this technique recently in a CSM Live on Facebook (Oct. 12/2016). I couldn’t’ resist adding some Ranger Stickles to the Seahorse and fish fins for some added sparkle and iridescence. And one of my favourite things to add to my projects lately…irRESISTable…

I picked up some papers and stickers from the Simple Stories fall collection called ‘Pumpkin Spice’  When I picked them up, it hadn’t snowed yet, and I was feeling the urge to scrapbook some of my fall pictures.
