Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! For today’s blog post, I’m sharing with you my Do Everything With Love Tag. To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, patterned paper from Simple Stories, a variety of products from Ranger Ink,  and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my tag at home. To start, you’ll need a tag that measures 3 1/8” x 6 ¼”. Select a piece of patterned paper out of the 6×8 Paper Pad – Simple Vintage Garden District from Simple Stories. Trace the tag around the piece of patterned paper. Cut the tag out. Punch a hole at the top of the patterned paper tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. Ink the edges…

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with my Brother ScanNCut electronic cutting machine. Stickers, gotta love ‘em. They are the backbone of contemporary scrapbooking. They really deserve a shout-out for the role they play in helping us to tell our stories in our scrapbooks. Twenty-three years ago when I started scrapbooking it was all about adding stickers to your pages and they still play a pivotal role in my creative expressions. That said, stickers can do more than stick, they can be very versatile. I have a sticker hack for creating next-level stickers. Here’s how I create my own sturdier ‘cardstock’ elements from stickers, to help me to create design clusters that really pop. To create this clustered tag I needed different weights of the various elements (ie. Stickers). I create my own ‘card stock’ sticker elements with the Brother ScanNCut…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with two cards featuring  the Art Impressions Succulents stamps and dies set.  These stamps are so pretty and succulents are so trendy right now! I stamped them with Ranger Archival Black Ink , coloured them with Chameleon pens. Next I cut them out with the coordinating dies and stuck everything together with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares are perfect for adding dimension to a row of succulents.  I put a coat of Glossy Accents on a few of the flowers to add some gloss and dimension and dabbed some Stickles glitter glue on some of the foliage.  Small details but it’s the little things that make cards extra special. The background patterned paper is from this wood and gingham basics paper pad from Simple Stories.  This paper pad is HUGE and has awesome colors and patterns. Thanks for…

Hehe! Kim Gowdy here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am sharing a layout inspired by the March Sketchy Challenge in April! Although the sketches never have an expiry date, I feel, as part of the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine design team, I should be a little less tardy! Just another example of “real life” getting in the way of scrappy expectations! My layout is not at all complicated and did not stray too far from the original March Sketchy Challenge. Most of my papers and elements are from Simple Stories ~ So Happy Together collection. I did cut an Ali Edwards tag to use as my journaling block. I added some little dimensional elements with Wendy Vecchi Enamel Accents and stylus from Ranger. My journaling is done using Kelly Creates fineliner and I found a very old stamp in my stash for adding the month to my…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! I’m Jayme Loge, a proud member of the Creative Scrapbooker team, and I’m delighted to share some layouts and cards I made with Simple Stories adorable spring and Easter line, Hip Hop Hooray! I had a lot of fun playing with these papers and was so happy to scrapbook 4 years’ worth of Easter and spring photos. You can watch my daughter grow and change with each layout. The first layout shows my preschool Avery hard at work coloring eggs. I wanted to add a bit of mess to my layout to echo what was going on at the kitchen table, so I added some pigment powder to my embossing paste (from Ranger) and applied some through a stencil (Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz) and some just smudged around. The Hip Hop Hooray stickers and Bits & Pieces are perfect for adding quick finishing touches- LOVE that! Next…
