Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here, hope you are settling into a great summer routine and finding time to enjoy these lovely, long days! I love the extra energy the sunshine seems to gift us, I find time to enjoy so much more, and that includes scrapbooking. Even after a busy day, I am ready for an hour or two to unwind in my craft room. This week I pulled out the March Sketchy Challenge again. My first layout with this sketch can be found on the Facebook Sketchy Gallery. I took the scale down to an 8.25 x 8.25, and believe it or not I used an instruction book that came with a recent purchase. It’s a good base to create over, travellers notebook size and a fun way to up-cycle some waste. Once I have figured out where I want my papers and emebellishments to be, I like to…

Happy Hauntings! Noreen Smith here to share another Halloween layout using the new Happy Hauntings Collection from Creative Memories! I am so enjoying using this moody, more sophisticated Halloween collection that features a striking Paper Pack, coordinating Stickers and intricate Laser Cut Embellishments! Even in scrapbooking, sometimes serendipity steps in to make a perfect match: when I saw the “It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus” sticker in the Happy Hauntings Sticker pack, I knew I would use it on a layout referencing one of my favorite movies. Then when I saw Jennifer’s October Sketch, I knew it would be perfect to use, as the three 2” x 2” photos were just right to feature some little headshot photos of the three Sanderson sisters from the movie Hocus Pocus and Hocus Pocus 2! Here’s Jennifer’s October Sketch: And here is my take on the sketch using the Happy Hauntings collection! And…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick share of a recent layout inspired by the June 2022 Sketchy Challenge designed by Kerry Engel.This was a super quick layout to pull together, which was awesome when life is busy. Allowed me some creative head space as well as a sense of accomplishment when I add it to my album! I used a combination of Simply Stated Design papers and die cut embellishments and a few bits and pieces from my Ali Edwards stash. I just LOVE how easy it was to make these little embellishment clusters, there are so many lovely pieces to play with! My permanent tape runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L was my adhesive of choice to keep all my parts together! I look forward to working with our second June Sketchy Challenge, stay tuned! Hopefully you are enjoying the beautiful issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, if…

Hi friends! Noreen from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com , grateful to be here to share my take on this month’s Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Sketchy Challenge! I’ve been thinking about Gratitude a lot this month – it was this month’s theme in the year long course that I teach and of course American Thanksgiving is happening next week. And I just returned from an amazing trip to New Orleans that I was so thankful to have experienced! So, it was natural to want to create a Gratitude themed layout using the new “I am Grateful Project Recipe Kit” released by Creative Memories this month. The kit includes eight beautiful double-sided patterned papers, two sticker sheets and an exclusive Recipe Template, as well as instructions to cut and create two double-page spreads! When I opened the kit, I found that one of the papers featured a twelve-square grid – much like the one that Kerry…

Size does matter, sometimes! There are times I want to create smaller than a 12×12. Not because it’s easier, because it works different creative muscles. I pulled out my planner from Elizabeth Craft Designs and used the July 2021 Sketchy Challenge as a starting point.When I work in the planner, I am always aware of what will ‘split’ down the center. Sometimes I will let photos or ephemera flow across the center if it doesn’t cut in an awkward place, i.e. splitting a person in half would not be good! Trust your brain…it will know right from wrong! Thanks for checking into my post! If you haven’t joined our Sketchy Challenge on Facebook, we welcome you! ~Kim

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick layout share inspired by the September Sketchy Challenge! When I use a sketch, my first goal is to make it my own! I rarely follow it exactly. When you see my layout, you may think it looks nothing like the sketch, but let me show you how I was inspired! I also challenged myself to use LOTS of product on this layout. I usually don’t use a lot of stickers, labels and die cuts on my layouts, but it’s good to step out of your comfort zone to work your creative brain! Let me show you my process… Thanks for stopping by the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to check out my layout. I hope it makes you look at sketches a bit differently I see sketches as a stepping stone to creative fun! Have a wonderful day! Do you have the latest…

Hey! Kim here with a quick layout share using the December Sketchy Challenge as my inspiration.   This is a sketch that took me awhile to warm up to. It wasn’t until I started to rotate it and look at photos that I got a feel for how it might work for me. I challenge you to work through a sketch that you don’t love, you may just be surprised with how much you like the end result! My layout uses the most basic of supplies. I almost always have Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Super Stock somewhere on my layout! I LOVE the weight, smoothness and the beautiful, bright white of this cardstock.  I used two types of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; White Permanent and Ultra permanent [I always find I need a stronger grip when I adhere anything to the textured side of Bazzil cardstock – used here as the…

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! Kim here again today! Happy June and official countdown to summer! Did you notice that our June Sketchy Challenge was revealed? I LOVE these monthly sketches, though I rarely do not get to them until a month or two later, but THAT my friends is perfectly OK! The thing is…sketches do not expire! They will patiently wait for YOU, so relax and work with them on YOUR schedule, not someone else’s! Kerry Engel has been designing our monthly sketches; and continues to come up with great ideas! This month’s sketch is a double page layout and we are all excited to see what stories you tell! I am sorry to say…my June sketch inspired layout is a 12×12 layout. I can’t even tell you the last time I did a double page layout [probably since losing horizontal space to scrapbooking product!], so without guilt, I adapted it to what…
