Happy Monday everyone. Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Are you excited to make a mess.  I know I am.  This is my first time using Dylusions Paint on a canvas.  I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel here, but maybe you have been thinking of trying these paints.  Or perhaps you haven’t cracked one open in sometime.  Follow along as I learn how to use these paints… and get ready to make a mess!  I am stretching out with these new to me paints and I have to say… what have I been waiting for. I’ll admit I have been intimidated but wow these are amazing. I cut up some make up sponges to apply the paint to the canvas and get your fingers in there!Smearing around with your fingers helps blend and smooth the paint. These paints dry fairly quickly so it’s easy to…

Hello everyone! Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine creating a fun Christmas tag. Holiday crafting is in full swing and you may have a Christmas tag or two left to create. Today I am sharing this easy resist background for your next Christmas tag or any paper crafting project.  Plaid is one of my favourite patterns and it’s even more fun to make your own background.  This way you can coordinate any colour you want.   It only takes a few easy steps and a lot of inky fingers. Lets get started. Putting Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock card stock through it’s paces with stenciling, embossing, spraying and inking for this tag.  Start with the clear embossing powder and stencil to create the resist. Heat dry the spray stain and wipe the extra stain off the embossed pattern.  The clear embossing powder creates the resist allowing the white background…

EEK… Halloween is coming and all things spooky!  Hello my pretties Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog sharing this rich Halloween inspired card with this bold punch of colour. I have fallen in love with the Clearsnap carrot dye mini ink pad!There’s a fun team up this week with Xyron and Clearsnap.  I got a little yummy box of Premium Dye Mini Ink Pads and to my delight there was Carrot and Coal in there. I used the Carrot Premium Dye Mini Ink Pads ink and blended, blended and more blending.  BAM… Now that’s a rich orange.  I hauled out my Stamp Platform for precision!  I wasn’t about to the ruin this inky masterpiece! In July I was in LasVegas so of course I had to go to Viva Las Vegas Stamps where I found lots and lots… and lots of yummy stamps including the Tree Writing Collage.  I cut my “Wicked Halloween”, perfect for the Sticker…

Welcome to another WHERE YOU CREATE post. If you are a fan of Tim Holtz, Ranger or Sizzix I know you will love the craft space we are about to share. Even if your creative style differs, we are confident you too will swoon over Nicole Wright’s scrapbooking room. Her craft room is not big…but WOWSERS, it packs a punch! In Nicole’s Words I have a very small but mighty craft space. This 8×12 room is designed to maximize space and functionality with storage on walls.  I create on an 80+ year old oak desk belonging to my husband’s grandfather. Everything is designed around this vintage centrepiece. Wire baskets hold my stamps and apple crate boxes house my extensive Sizzix library.  IKEA wire shelves are perfect for all my Ranger inky things. Glass jars are full of seasonal embellishments, twine and paper dolls. Floating shelves show off my favorite pieces I…

Dry your stamp with some paper towel then add more color to the leaves and petals cleaning between. The new Tonic Stamp Platform was the perfect tool to…

Hello, Nicole here and I am so excited to share my new journal pages using Stabilo.  I was sent a set of  Woody 3 in 1 pencils to create with.  These are new to me so I was very curious how they would handle my love of watercoloring.  They far surpassed my expectations!  They are smooth to put on these old pages, creamy enough to blend and don’t washout when watercoloring.  Check out my quick and easy tutorial for stamping and watercoloring with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.I prepared my old book pages with Ranger’s Clear Gesso.  Once dry I stamped the Garden Flower stamps randomly then started adding colour with the Stabilo Woody pencils.  You can easily move the colour around by smearing with your fingers.This is my first time so I wanted to try the pencils in different ways.  I tried blending and they blend beautifully.  Watercoloring…

It all started with my pages I gessoed black.  At first this was a great idea, then I felt it was a bad idea… then I went with it and I was beyond happy with it. After the pages were painted all black I went back over with white gesso to create a hill effect and road Colouring with various Ranger green distress crayons for shading and lighting.  The sky has shades of blue and violet.The cityscape is inked with Ranger Distress Oxide ink and run through my Creative…
