Hello and Happy New Year! Kim here with a quick layout share using Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s December Sketchy Challenge. December’s wreath sketch was once again designed by the talented Kerry Engel and easily spoke to our holiday brains as a backdrop to holiday pictures. My brain quickly went to winter, Christmas, green, red and gold when I initially saw the design…that’s when my hand went up and said NO! I like to challenge the sketches by thinking outside of my gut feelings. I had all kinds of winter themed product on my desk and couldn’t get my brain away from a Christmas wreath vision, so I cleared it ALL off my table and pulled out the first collection of paper I had that was NOT Christmas. It just happened to be Simple Stories’ Forever Fall collection. First off, I LOVE autumn and I LOVE autumn colours. My brain started chugging…

LOL! Yes, I do!!!!! Pure happiness! Check out Tracy McLennon’s layout featuring Simple Stories. Not only do I love a well-stocked craft room, but I also LOVE it when fellow scrapbookers take the time to document the room that they spend so much time in. At first glance, you may think it silly, but it is a very large part of what we do and who we are. Where we spend hours telling our stories, documenting our history, learning, creating and simply being who we are. Take a moment in 2019 and scrapbook your space. Tell the story of how it began, your favourite moments, and your scrapbooking journey. It is a part of you and therefore it is PERFECT! Your family will love it! Tracy put together her layout using the Simple Stories Crafty Girl collection. To see more of Tracy’s work visit her blog – Scrappy Chick Designs…

Hello crafty friends, Tracy McLennon here. Today I have a beautifully festive layout to share using the new Simple Vintage Christmas Collection from Simple Stories. I adore everything about this collection. The classic Christmas palette, the vintage imagery and the sheer selection of fabulous coordinating embellishments. This collection has so much crafty potential for all sorts of your holiday crafting and scrapbooking. I love to create with lots of layers, texture, and dimension. So each of these bits, pieces, and patterned layers have dimension thanks to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares, Thin 3D Foam Squares, and Crafty Foam Tape. You’ll also find the coordinating washi tape here and there adding pops of colour. Some finishing touches include gold glitter enamel dots and ivory buttons. A few more coordinating bits and pieces die cuts around the matted photo and embellishments clusters so perfectly accent that super cute photo of…

Check out this gorgeous layout Kerry Engel designed. From the wintery photos to the acetate snowflakes to the texture paste background – I seriously feel the crisp fresh air of a beautiful winter day just looking at this creation! One of the things I particularly love on Kerry’s layout is the photo of the footsteps walking away in the snow. What a great angle! Here are the supplies Kerry used to put together her layout.

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…
