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.…

Hello Friday, so glad to see you again! Hey everyone, Kim Gowdy  here with a quick card share for you. I don’t know about you, but April and May have my calendar FULL of birthdays and anniversaries! As a paper crafter, people expect a homemade card and honestly, I feel a bit guilty if I don’t step up to the plate! These birthday cards were all made using Simple Stories Beautiful Collection. When I need to make lots of cards, I tend to put away my ink and stamps and pull out collections of papers and embellishments!Because the colours and patterns in a collection are designed to play well together, it’s EASY to layer paper, stickers, die cuts etc. Before you know it, a handful of cards…. DONE like dinner! [Maybe dinner didn’t get made because I was making cards…just sayin!]I made this first card simply by layering paper and…

Hi there!  Nathalie DeSousa with you today sharing my first blog post as part of the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team. I am very humbled and excited to share a bit of my work with you all, so what better way to show you my style than to create a 12×12 scrapbook page that combines a bit of mixed media and the beautiful Bliss Collection from Simple Stories.All those beautiful and soft colors in the collection are perfect to document spring and new beginnings, so I pulled a cut file from the Silhouette library, and backed it with papers from the collection.To add dimension to this page, some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares were used to attach the cut out to the background.    A bit of distressing on the top edge of the page provided the perfect place to add a small cluster of embellishments.Some of the floral motifs…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today.  I never thought I would be a football mom, but my youngest son decided to play football when he was 14, so here I am.  I’m still learning about the game, but I’m now a proud football fan with a million football photos.  Fortunately, Simple Stories has a Football Collection kit with some beautiful themed patterned papers and stickers. Besides football, Simple Stories has other themed collections available, so if you are a baseball, basketball, soccer, cheer, or dance mom, be sure to check them out. I wanted a big football to embellish the layout, so I downloaded a free dingbat from a font called ‘Balls, Balls and More Balls’ and printed an extra large football onto a piece of white cardstock.  I cut it out and then adhered it with foam adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to give it some extra dimension. There is…
