Christmas Tags Instead of Christmas Cards Working within magazine timelines is kinda crazy. You could be sitting on the beach sun tanning while working on your Christmas assignments for the winter issue. LOL! Each and every summer at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, we start to plan for and start creating the projects within the upcoming winter issue. I will send out the assignments when the weather is warm and hear back from each of our designers with questions and their suggestions. Christy Riopel ALWAYS ALWAYS came back with the same thing….. “I will make Christmas tags instead of Christmas cards!” – giggle, giggle. She just didn’t enjoy the creative process of putting together a card.  BUT tags – tags she loved! The Winter 2012 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Check out these gorgeous Christmas tags Christy created for the Winter 2012 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Christy used Karen Foster Designs…

Hello everyone!  Karen Ellis here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.  For my turn on Tuesday’s with the Team, I am happy to share with you a project close to my heart – cards of thanks and remembrance. Some of you may know that I am a reservist member of the Canadian Forces- CIC Branch.  I work with our youth Cadet Program.  This time of year is very special to me.  I am honoured to wear the uniform and support our country’s youth. Last month I attended ScrapFest at the CreativFestival in Toronto with the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  It was a fabulous event that had not only some wonderful paper crafting vendors, but sewing and needlework vendors as well.   One of the booths there represented Quilts of Valour – Canada Society.  This is a great organization that provides quilts to Canada’s injured forces members.  I have provided this organization…

Ever wonder what the heck texture paste, gesso and all those other mediums are and what they are used for? Way back in the Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine we asked Christy Riopel to do a feature article called “Mad for Mediums” to answer these very questions. In this article, Christy played with and explained the various uses of the different kinds of gesso and texture paste. Her projects included techniques using a variety of different types of gesso with everyday scrapbooking supplies like  stencils, recycled magazines, distress spray, dies and so much more. She had so much that she wanted to share with everyone that we ended up dividing  the article into a TWO part series. Part one can be found in the Summer 2016 issue and Part two can be found in the Fall 2016 issue. Coloring Texture Paste One of my favourite techniques that Christy…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Magazine fans – Katelyn Grosart on the blog today. Fall is in full swing and it’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few months away. So with Christmas in mind, I decided to create an altered project to hold a fabulous little Christmas gift. To get you in to the holiday spirit, I’ve used the new “Country Kitchen” collection from Carta Bella, some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L as well as a few products from Ranger , to create this fabulous All Things with Love Grow Altered Jar. Make sure to grab your favourite Fall beverage as I share with you below how I created this altered jar at home. The Country Kitchen Collection from Carta Bella has so many fabulous elements to allow you to layer different images together as well as create a variety of projects with it. To create the medallion for…

Kim Gowdy is on our web show today walking you through how to create die cut inserts. This is a relatively simple technique that gives your project an added sense of depth and slightly more texture. This technique is even easier if you have coordinating dies for your stamps so you eliminate any tedious fussy cutting. No Talkie Before Coffee Here is the card that Kim will be stepping out on our webshow. The Art Impressions stamped image of the happy lady spinning in her office chair was stamped and then cut out with a coordinating die. Kim then used the coordinating die to cut out where she would like to place the image on her card. Next she simple adhered the die cut stamped image into the space – creating a die cut insert.  Pretty simple. If I confused you – it will all be clear after you watch…

Happy Monday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Don’t you just love patterned paper with large life-like quality graphics on them? Full image graphic patterned papers, such as those from Paper House Productions are so stunning I am almost afraid to use them with my photographs. I find that I  just want to put the paper with the beautiful graphic images, without anything on it, in my albums! They are so gorgegeous and at the same time can be intimidating! The Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team has fallen in love with the Delish Collection from Paper House Productions. A few weeks ago Tracy McLennon also created a layout featuring this gorgoues collection of patterned paper with LARGE graphical photo quality images on them – CLICK HERE to see Tracy’s creation. Here is what I created with a few different pieces of patterned papers from Paper House…

Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am playing with the FabScraps Mother Earth collection of patterned papers perfect for heritage themed layouts.   I have a little vintage scrappy inspiration for you. I have a love for my collection of heritage family photos. I am lucky to have had access to huge photo collection from both sides of my family. So I have scanned, printed and archived many of them. So today I am sharing a layout that I created using a photo of my grandmother (left) and her 2 sisters. I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting any of these beautiful, strong women. But I can create and share their legacy. FabScraps Mother Earth Collection This collection from FabScraps is the perfect pairing with heritage photos. I created a patchwork of pattern behind my photo. Simple squares of multiple patterns, make a…
