Featuring Aladine Izink Pigment inks distributed by Clearsnap and Quietfire Design stamps Hello, Connie here impatiently waiting for the snow to melt, the mud to dry and the garden to grow. This layout was totally inspired by my stash of fake flowers.  I was trying to declutter my basement and gathered up all the artificial flowers that I have collected over the years.  Most of these were purchased from Dollarama or from the clearance aisle at Michaels and Walmart stores, but have largely turned into dust collectors since I rarely use flowers on layouts these days. Before I passed these posies on to their next home, I thought I would do one more layout with them for old time’s sake.  I started with a piece of Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock and made my own really simple customized paper by adding a rainbow of colour with Izink inks.   The Izinks are manufactured by Aladine…

When to stop and when not to? by Christy Riopel January always makes me a little introspective and I tend to scrapbook more interpersonal stuff this time of year. I created this layout about dealing with the old(er) girl in the mirror these days. SUPPLIES: FabScraps pattened paper and chipboard, Aladine Izink inks distributed by Clearsnap, May Arts ribbon, Impression Obsession stamps, ColorBox Surfacez ink by Clearsnap, Spellbinders dies and Grand Calibur die cutting machine, Dymo Label Maker, Ranger Industries gel pen, Beacon Adhesives. It ended up being an exploration in not just one hard question ( when did I get this old?) but in another unrelated question I often face….. When do I stop? When is enough on a layout? Here is a picture of what It looked like when I first thought it was done.    Not that I was unhappy with it but I just felt it needed more.…

It is that exciting time of the year when the biggest crafting tradeshow takes place in Anaheim, California, and Canadian Scrapbooker joins in the fun to share with you all the wonderful new releases and products from our favourite manufacturers. The first booth we will show you today is Spellbinders. “Shaping a Beautiful Life” is the guiding statement of this company that is much more than than the die cut system it is well-known for.  Entering this booth is nothing short of magical. Displays are just gorgeous… It seems as if you are transported back in time to an age of vintage glory and antique wonders. One new collection is called “Laced with Love” There are many new intricate 3D dies… Many projects and cards on display were so beautiful and inspirational! These cut out vintage book frames were stunning! At the other end of the booth is…
