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…

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…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout and a couple of cards created with Echo Park Paper Co.’s Halloween Town collection.   I love scrapbooking photos from when my boys were little and cute.  Now, as teenagers, they don’t dress up and go trick or treating any longer and I miss it.  Ah well, at least I have memories.Here’s an image of the Halloween town collection – a great variety of Halloween colours and images – they are very versatile and very cute! Step by Step: I was in a triangular sort of mood, so I used a ruler and a pencil to quarter several sheets of patterned paper (just pencil a line from opposite corners and cut out your triangle).  I stitched around the edges of each quarter with my Brother sewing machine.  Machine stitching only takes a few minutes and it adds a nice touch to your…

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…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with some autumn inspiration for you from BoBunny and the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine October Sketchy Challenge. This month’s sketch gives you room to tell a great photo story; it has room for four photos! The off-kilt design shakes things up a bit, creating some fun energy. I love summer colours but it was so fun to play with the rusty burgundies in this BoBunny Dreams of Autumn collection, they are so rich and yummy: almost makes me excited that fall is here. Pretty much every fall photo I have looks great with this line.One of the cool features in this collection is the page with all the single elements. I fussy cut out several of the leaves and then got messy. The results were some realistic 3D embellishments. After I cut out the leaves I sprayed them with water and…

One of the things we loved the most about working with Christy Riopel was her ability to think outside the box. In her regular Tool Junkie column Christy would take supplies, create a project in the way the products were intended. Next,  she would create a few more projects showing you different ways that you may not have thought, to use your supplies. Very clever. Such was the case in our Fall 2013 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this article Christy used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares as stamps – stamping with adhesives – who would have thought. Here is the spread as seen in the Fall 2013 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine with the step by steps on how Christy designed her layout. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares were definitely not intended for stamping – however Christy turned them into a super cool stamp…

Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share a little layout that I created. But first, I am going to admit it right now….I LOVE food, and I am one of those people that loves to take photos of beautiful food. So when I saw the Delish Collection from Paper House Productions ….well I knew I would have some fabulous photos to create with. Why do I take photos of food from time to time? Well, it brings back some great memories of vacations, special nights out or even just some of my favourite locally made foods. I remember conversations and occasions when I see the photos. Sometimes you just have to take a second and admire the culinary talent and beauty of some meals. Photos don’t have to always be of people to triggers fabulous memories.
