Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here with one sketch – three different projects. This is a good sketch for a big or dominant photo that really tells your story. The curvy diagonal lines create movement and energy. Supplies:  Creative Memories Cap and Gown Collection, Clearsnap ColorBox ink and embossing powder,  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Stampin’ Up! gold thread, Studio Calico brad. An old Colleague of mine posted her graduation photos on Facebook one day and I instantly had an urge to scrap them. The Cap and Gown collection from Creative Memories has several “2107” embellishments but it’s really a versatile collection. The colors work really well with vintage photos.  I glammed it up a bit with gold embossing powder and shiny brads and thread. The papers held up well to mix media techniques. And the coordinating album is a really classy.  Supplies: Donna Salazar for  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  Denim Art Journal and…

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Kim here with a layout share using products from Wild Whisper Designs, Ranger Inks, Southern Ridge Trading Company and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I loved the ‘Adventure Collection’ from Wild Whisper Designs from the moment I started to see layouts being created with it shared online. It is so well suited for outdoorsy photos! I paired the papers up with some bear photos I had from a few years back! I am really happy with the finished result! I designed and cut my title using my electronic cutting machine and was thrilled that by chance it lined up perfectly with the design of the paper I placed behind for contrast…giving it a bit more visual texture! My journaling was done using a Ranger Ink Dylusions paint pen – you should try them out if you haven’t…I LOVE them! My bear and tree elements are from Southern…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Today I thought I would switch things up a bit from what I normally create and create some tags that you could use for any occasion. Using the beautiful Lavender Breeze Collection from FabScraps, a few fabulous chipboard pieces and flowers from Southern Ridge Trading Company, wonderful stones and embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and a variety of products from Ranger, I was able to create these beautiful Any Occasion Tags.

With your tags out, you’ll need the Memory Lane and Simplicity patterned paper from FabScraps.

Hello Everyone! Corina Finley here with you today to share my ‘Simple Pleasures’ Coffee themed layout featuring Heartfelt Creations and Southern Ridge Trading Co. chipboard. I created this page to capture my Sunday morning ritual. On Sundays, my oldest son brings me my first cup of coffee of the day in bed! I get to start my day by laying back and relaxing with my dog Kuma. He thinks that the king size bed really belongs to him and sleeps whichever direction he wants! I like to start my projects by collecting the supplies that I think I will need from around my studio and having them on my work surface.  I do still have to grab other items as my design idea changes but I find by doing this it cut back on getting distracted. I chose to use Bazzill Java cardstock and the Coffee Bean Pattern Paper from…

Creating a Background with Ranger Hey Creative Scrapbookers, Nicole here with you for Tuesday with the Team.  Have you got your copy of the Spring Issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine?  This card was featured in the Technique Tasters column pages 66-67.  Here, I have a more detailed look at how to create a dynamic background using Ranger Distress Crayons.  Check out the steps below and get your Ranger Distress products ready. Brush a thin layer of Ranger’s White Gesso onto a 2 ¾” x 5 ¾” piece of cream cardstock and set aside to dry.  For the background layer prep a 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” piece of watercolor paper.  Spray with water to help the Distress Spray Stain to blend. Spray water over the distress spray stain again and heat dry.  Add distress ink and blend.  This gives the background a rich look.  Flick water over the inked paper…

It’s a 3-in-1 challenge! by Kerry Engel Many of you have been using Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketchy challenge as your inspiration-spring-board, creating some beautiful layouts and cards but did you know that you could use a sketch to inspire you in your art journal too? I’m still relatively new to the art journal game. To be honest sometimes I look at all my yummy layers and colorful pages and while I love the techniques and I realize that it’s about ‘playing’ and exploring, at the end I wish that they made more sense.  Visual sense. Visual sense for me starts at the beginning; when I think about the direction or movement that I want in my page. That’s where having a sketch as a launching point helps. I loosely used this months sketch to contain my techniques and create movement down the middle. I really liked how it turned out…

Hello Creative  Scrapbookers! Have you ever had a layout appear almost by magic? It happened to me! Here’s the details: I created this layout.  Supplies used- Patterned paper, glittlered chipboard; Jen Hadfield Stencil: Donna Downey Ink and Embossing Paste: Ranger Chipboard: Southern Ridge Trading Co (painted with InkaGold by Viva Decor) Acrylic Letters: Pink Paislee Stickers: 7 gypsies Acrylic Tiles: Harmonie It was full on Jayme style with lots of mess and a bit of chaos going on!   I had ink and discarded paper spread all around me. I proclaimed the layout complete and set about cleaning up my mess. I lifted off the first layer, and to my wondering eyes, a second layout was just laying there amongst the scraps. I love it when scrapendipity is in the air! I glued it together, found a picture and chose a title. I love the way the background paper kind…
