Hello again! Kim here with another layout share for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine! As our Alberta days shorten and get cooler, I am drawn to the colours of the season but my scrapbooking keeps me into summer vibes just a bit longer! For my layout, I used Simple Stories collection – Hello Summer. It was easy to pull out the patterned paper and embellishments that worked with my photo; a rare family photo opportunity that found my parents, siblings and myself all together! If lobster bibs are part of that moment…so be it! Here I matted my main image on a piece of CSM Superstock and made it larger to accommodate my journaling as well as my photo. I used some barn door Distress Oxide by Ranger, to edge my cardstock with a bit of colour to co-ordinate with the patterned paper. Once I had my basic layout arranged, I…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m back on the blog today to share with you a fun fantasy themed tag. With Fall in the air, it was fun to work with some bright and cheerful patterned paper which had me longing for some sunny weather to come back. The inspiration for my tag came from the “Always Be Yourself Unless You Can Be A Mermaid” card out of the Simple Stories Collection – Dream Big.  To create my tag, I used the Dream Big 12×12 Collection Kit from Simple Stories.  As well as the Chipboard Stickers, 4×6 Stickers and the Bits & Pieces from the Dream Big Collection from Simple Stories.  For the base of my tag, I used the Medium Etcetera Tag from Stampers Anonymous. You’ll need to choose a piece of patterned paper from the Dream Big Collection from Simple Stories to trace the chipboard tag around. Cut the…

Hello everyone – Kim Gowdy here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Do you know what I LOVE? Sketches! Did you know that Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a fun Sketchy Challenge every month? That’s 12 sketches a year for as long as I can remember…saved between a NEW and OLD gallery…there’s a lot of inspiration in these galleries! Why 2 galleries? Technology! Our older gallery is no longer “stable” …what that means is it’s a great place for viewing but NOT for uploading new content! So, although today’s layout share will find a home in our newest gallery, don’t forget to visit sketches from days gone by, they don’t expire! The March 2018 Sketchy Challenge was a double page layout! A great sketch for story telling! I only had one problem…I haven’t done a double page in so long [mainly because my work space is too full!] so I challenged…

SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER! We have a long weekend ahead of us – YAHOO! We all grew up with our parents yelling at us to get outside in the summer. I did the same to my son when he chose Gameboy over gorgeous summer weather! Then along comes Jomelle Gomez with a craft room share; and honestly…you could lock me up in there and throw away the key…NEVER let me out! You are in for a treat! Hi! My name is Jomelle and this is my craft room.   I can just stay here all day long playing with all my planner goodies. I fell in love with the EZ View desk from The Original Scrapbox. It displays some of my favorite embellishments. I also wanted to display my planner collection. I love to decorate my desk and showcase the current collection that I am working on for my DT projects.…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring Therm O  Web DecoFoils and Gina K Designs Foil Mates and Simple Stories ‘I Am’ paper line. I had SO much fun playing with the foils and Foil Mates from Therm O Web.  My foiled masterpieces paired beautifully with the patterned paper and stickers from Simple Stories I Am collection (which have foiled accents) to create a cute scrapbook layout with a couple of photos of my baby boy. Here are the some of the Therm O Web products I used.  I was initially a little nervous, thinking that there might be a learning curve on how to achieve the best results, but oh my goodness, so easy!!  All you do is lay a piece of foil over the patterned cardstock or transparency, run it through a laminator, and presto, instant shine! And here’s the Simple Stories I am collection…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am excited to be sharing with you a baby themed project. With spring being here, it means that flowers are blooming and babies are arriving. For me, I always find it challenging to create a baby card because it’s one of those types of cards that you don’t need often. So, by using the adorable Oh Baby! line from Simple Stories, a variety of chipboard pieces from Southern Ridge Trading Company, Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies, Ink from Ranger Ink, adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Super Stock Cardstock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, I was able to create this cute Welcome Home Little One Card. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite spring beverage as I share with you how to recreate my Welcome Home Little One Card at home.…
