Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel. Christy’s designs are timeless. So many of her creations from way back when continue to inspire us today. This week we are looking back to the Winter 2014 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, in Christy’s regular Tool Junkie Article, Christy turned a variety of different products into stamps. In this layout, My Butterfly Girl, she turned a die cut created from a Sizzix die into a stamp. Check it out. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone! In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art Scholarship. To date – one scholarship has been given through The Boys & Girls Club of Calgary. This warms my heart knowing that Christy continues to spread gentle, caring and inspiring love through…

Nicole Wright here today celebrating Canada’s 151st birthday!  I love Canada even more since today is also my husband’s birthday.  I always make sure he has a “CANADA DAY” theme card.  This year his card is extra special.  The paper used for the Maple Leaf and side red banners are 116 year old paper from his grandfather’s old book.  It’s ok, I have permission. I will be filming the HOW TO for this card with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine in a few days… while I am on vacation.  For now, check out this inspiration and get ready for this quick video. 1. I cut the Sizzix die cut Layered Leaf with the book page paper to create a Maple Leaf.    The side banners are cut with the same book page.  Each book page is inked with Ranger’s Distress Spray Ink Candied Apple.  To get that intensity I sprayed 2 times, drying…

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…
