Hello and Happy Fall! Kim here with some layouts to share, inspired by the September Sketchy Challenge. It’s no secret that I LOVE a good sketch as a starting place for scrapbooking. It seems to be what my brain seeks to start my creative process. I’m not one to always follow a sketch exactly. I never see absolutes with a sketch. Some folks see a sketch and distinguish what is a photo, paper and embellishment, they want to know what size to print photos and cut paper to make an exact replica, this is not wrong, just not my way. I, however see a sketch and think looser. What if the photo was paper or vice-versa, could an embellishment be a photo, one photo could hold the ‘weight’ of many photos, a photo could be a journal block, etc. I do not look to replicate  the sketch, though sometimes it…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a layout share full of warm, tropical vibes! I am just back from a weekend retreat with some of my favourite people. We shared stories, scrapbooking supplies, laughs and great food…there may have been some wine as well. Most of my friends were so productive…I was not. I do not create well at retreats. I know this and I accept this…yet I keep going to them. Why? Because surrounding myself with creative people, ‘my’ people and craft supplies fills up my mojo. These people feed my energy and my soul! I pack supplies knowing they will only be shuffled around and put back when I get home. Today was my day off. Between laundry, tidying and walking the dog I finished this layout. Little bursts of paper breaks mixed into my day…how about that!? It’s how I create; quietly in my own space, knowing…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick share of a recent layout inspired by the June 2022 Sketchy Challenge designed by Kerry Engel.This was a super quick layout to pull together, which was awesome when life is busy. Allowed me some creative head space as well as a sense of accomplishment when I add it to my album! I used a combination of Simply Stated Design papers and die cut embellishments and a few bits and pieces from my Ali Edwards stash. I just LOVE how easy it was to make these little embellishment clusters, there are so many lovely pieces to play with! My permanent tape runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L was my adhesive of choice to keep all my parts together! I look forward to working with our second June Sketchy Challenge, stay tuned! Hopefully you are enjoying the beautiful issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, if…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here! Have you ever thought about how you start a layout? Are you consistent or do you mix it up? I mix it up! Sometimes I love to start with a sketch or a particular photo may inspire me and sometimes I like to choose the product first. The project I’m sharing today was all about using my stash of Stampers Anonymous stamps! Please note…no patterned paper was harmed in the process! I pulled out a sheet of CSM Super Stock [primed with a thin layer of gesso] and brayered on some with some Distress Inks. I love the texture the brayer creates! I then removed some of the ink with a stencil and baby wipe.Next, I layered on some stamps of various patterns. This process of making a background is so fun and very relaxing. In the wise words of Seth Apter…if you don’t love…

Hey! Kim here with a quick layout share using the December Sketchy Challenge as my inspiration.   This is a sketch that took me awhile to warm up to. It wasn’t until I started to rotate it and look at photos that I got a feel for how it might work for me. I challenge you to work through a sketch that you don’t love, you may just be surprised with how much you like the end result! My layout uses the most basic of supplies. I almost always have Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock somewhere on my layout! I LOVE the weight, smoothness and the beautiful, bright white of this cardstock.  I used two types of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; White Permanent and Ultra permanent [I always find I need a stronger grip when I adhere anything to the textured side of Bazzil cardstock – used here as the…

Happy Tuesday With The Team! It’s Kim here today with a quick share. I look forward to Tuesdays on our blog to see what “my peeps” have been up to when they aren’t busy doing assignments, I’m always inspired! And THAT is just what I want to touch on today. I love that I am able to create and share for Creative Scrapbooker, and am thrilled if one of my projects has inspired one of your layouts or cards. What’s important to know…I also get inspired from so many people and places. It’s a wonderful feeling with the creative brain takes over and flows, but that is not always the case! Today’s layout share is not a “Kim Original”! I scraplifted this idea from IG: @scrappingwithchristine ~ her layout was shared on Creative Scrapboooker Magazine’s Instagram feed on May 28th. I loved it as soon as I saw it, and…

A BIG hello from Kim! Just popping in to share a quick look at some inky fun I was having, that will get added to a card base to send off to a friend! I recently got this new Picket Fence stamp set: Beauty & Song . I love all the details and look forward to using it lots more. It’s a big stamp, so you could easily use the entire image of parts of it. For this project, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of computer paper, cut around it and added some repositional adhesive to the back. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L makes a great adhesive with the perfect amount of tack, that is easily removed when needed. I positioned the sentiment to mask the area where it would eventually be permanently stamped. I stamped my main image over the mask using a stamp positioner. Using my Life…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

Welcome back, crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little Spring-inspired butterfly layout to share featuring Pink & Main, Ranger, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Kelly Creates and Chameleon Color Tone Pens. Here are all of the nitty-gritty details. Start by cutting down the Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock cardstock to 11×11. Mat your 4×6 photo in white cardstock and add Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Black Creative Photo Corners. Using a blending tool and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick), create small blended circles diagonally across the 11×11 cardstock. Using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink again (Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron) and the Pink & Main silhouette butterfly image stamp, stamp 3 images around where your photo will be in the middle of the layout. Using Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays, splatter colour across the layout diagonally. Let dry…

Hello again Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Kim here, I’ve been working on another Sketchy Challenge this weekend and can’t wait to share with you. I was inspired by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s April sketch. I stayed pretty true to the sketch, however I opted not to use circles as the design shape. Sometimes the pictures dictate how I move forward with a layout, sometimes the papers I want to use. I knew before sitting down to play with this sketch, I wanted to play with Wild Whispers “Talk Foodie To Me” collection. The colours of the collection and the whimsy of the products simply make me smile! The patterned paper I used feels grounded with the straight lines of the photos. I am in love with all the fun embellishments in this collection, check them out on my layout! I used way more embellishments than I usually might, but they all played so…
