Chalkboard embellishments are all the rage right now and I love Core-dinations ColorCore cardstocks new Chalk Core Paper for making my own embellishments! I used Core’dinations Color Core cardstock, Spellbinders dies, Clearsnap Izinks, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Simple Stories stickers, Prima Marketing flowers, Xyron Sticker Makers and Marvy gel pens. I cut out and embossed several shapes from the Chalk Core paper using my dies. To make it easier to sand the very fine cuts I first ran them through my Xyron sticker maker. Leaving the cut out on the backing I then sanded the embossed die cuts making them look like beautiful fine chalk work!! I then added them to my layout over a layer of Clearsnap Izinks. I added a very old, vintage photo of myself that I recently stumbled upon. Many people ask me what they should do differently with their older photos…my answer is nothing, do…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share some designing tips using Spellbinders® dies.  I created this vintage layout by layering Spellbinders die cuts behind my photo. I used the beautiful graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” collection, which I thought was perfect for this photo of my mom and her friends having a casual tea party back in 1953. This gorgeous Spellbinders Nestabilities® set called “Elegant Ovals” (S4-425) die cut beautifully with this cream card stock (which came in the graphic 45 paper pack) Just look at those intricate cut designs! You cannot get that result from an electronic cutting machine. I used the dies themselves to trace the same shapes from patterned paper to fit inside each Elegant Oval. All of my embellishments are either graphic 45 stickers or fussy cut from the patterned papers. I can always count on Spellbinders dies for intricate cut designs that really pop…

Kim here for a quick post featuring a really FUN die set from Sizzix. It’s their triple, square,  flip-it cards die! This is such a great way to make quick, EASY cards that look like you have spent lots of time on! Perfect for any occasion, I think the look can be endless! The set comes with lots of pieces to mix up the look and mat the cards. It is brilliantly simple! All you have to do is think up what papers and embellishments to use! I chose to use 6×6 paper pads from Forever In Time. They were easy to mix and match! Here is the first of three cards I’m sharing, a good any occasion card. I used these fun paper butterflies from Forever In Time! I have come to love them! The next card is a simple birthday card. Look…more of those butterflies! The inside…

Hello from me…Kim Gowdy! I am back into routine after a wonderful holiday with my family. I LOVE time off work, it gives me time to relax and lets the stress leave my body! My shoulders start to loosen and drop, my brain wonders away from work things and I get to reconnect with my family! Another thing that happens is my creative self grows. Sometimes I find my scrapbook layouts reflect daily life…when routine is rigid, my pages are also. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I really love when I let myself  be more free. This page I feel is a result of holidays. I just had fun placing embellishments kind of randomly, adding some ink splotches and stitching…I really like the feel! I kept my supplies simple using only patterned paper from one line: Fancy Pants Nautical Collection. A little ribbon from May Arts Ribbon and…

Happy July 1st everyone!  Connie Nichol here with a patriotic red and white Canada Day layout.  I was briefly tempted to use non-traditional colours, but just couldn’t do it.  LOL I used the July Canadian Scrapbooker sketchy challenge sketch as a starting point.  It looks like this: I decided to start with a base of Core’Dinations Spotted cardstock.  It looks so lovely and textured, especially when you sand a tiny bit off of the top. The other day I saw that Rhonda Steed had some free Canada day printables up on her blog (hot link www.rhondasteed.com) and I was totally inspired to use a couple of these project life typecards as part of my layout. Then, instead of reaching for patterned paper strips to follow the July sketch, I decided to use a variety of May Arts ribbon.  Sometimes ribbon is a pain to adhere to a layout, especially skinny…

Summer is almost here and that means Sunglasses…. and no one loves them more than my Ashley. I love scrapbooking day to day photos like this. I used:  Simple Stories patterned paper, tags, and stickers, Sizzix stamps, dies and embossing folders, Clearsnap Surfacez inks, and Stephanie Barnard Sprays, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I stamped the Sizzix flags onto a Simple Stories card and used the Sizzix co-ordinating dies to cut them out. I love the versatility of this set. I also used a Sizzix embossing folder on two other cards from the same pack and layered them behind my photo to create texture. I love to get as much as I can out of my supplies, so I cut up the border of the Simple Stories alpha sticker sheet into little square stickers and attached them to the page. Happy Summer –Is-Almost-Here Scrapping! To see more of Christy’s work…

Think Spring! Featuring BoBunny Woodland Winter and Quietfire Design Stamps In my part of Canada, we have plenty of winter, and plenty of snow,  but usually the only time of year when the snow is melty enough to stick together and build a snowman  is spring.  It’s too bad, really, because that also usually means that the snowman will not stick around for long.  The higher sun angle and warmer temperatures during this time of year typically result in his rapid disappearance into a large puddle of icy water. The snowman building process is still fun though, especially if you use delicious cookies for eyes and buttons.  I found a couple of photos from when my boys were little that brought back these memories.  I was inspired to scrapbook them with the April sketch from the Canadian Scrapbooker sketchy challenge and some stunning papers and embellishments from BoBunny.…

Hi everyone! Jodi Wilton here today to share with you a quick card made with FabScraps & Spellbinders!  I put these two together because I thought FabScraps, would be a perfect match for the Spellbinders Shapeabilities- Asian Motifs: I started off by cutting a black cardstock base and adding some FabScraps paper, just inside the base. I sewed around the FabScraps paper for some extra detail. I then used the largest die from the Spellbinders Asian Motif with some FabScraps paper, and layered a square to fit just inside it. (I also sewed around this square for extra detail). Finally the Romantic Travel  Die Cut book is awesome! I used  a luggage tag and added a bit of paper in it and sewed around the luggage tag. I also  got out a FabScraps butterfly Chipboard to add to the card. The next step was to adhere the layers…

Kim Gowdy here! Hope everyone is having a great April! I have to say when I was given this week as my Tuesday with the Team date; I was just a little excited. You see, it’s the last one before Easter, so it lets me have an Easter theme! I have been stalking SVG sites lately and really wanted an excuse to buy one from SVGcuts. They have the most awesome collections and as I have discovered, if you take the time to open and read the pdf file that comes with the purchase, you will find the recommended height or width for each file. You have seen us play a fair amount with the Brother ScanNCut. I love that you can use the online program; ScanNCutCanvas, to upload SVG files to cut. There is a learning curve to this and any new software, but it’s pretty easy to use.…
