Hi everyone.  Karen Ellis here.   Today is my day on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you something that I’ve been working on.This weekend my mind, like so many of us, was on Hurricane Irma and the disaster she left  in her wake in the Caribbean and the state of Florida.  As a survivor of a natural disaster myself (lost my home in a F4 tornado), I know what it is like to lose everything (including friends and neighbours) and what it means to rebuild.  I know you all will join me in wishing the survivors the very best, a fast recovery and a quick rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Irma. While watching the news coverage, I took to my studio and opened to an unfinished page in my art journal and created this layout I’m sharing with you today.  I enjoy going to my journal when…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a  layout that features some adorably funny Art Impressions stamps.  These stamps always brings a huge smile to my face.  Although I’m sure they are most often used to make cards, why not use them to embellish a scrapbook layout?  I had the perfect photograph to go with a stamp of three friends drinking wine! Stamps Used Here’s the Art Impressions stamp sets I used.  I had two sets of funny wine stamps in my stash and I wanted to use them both.  I stamped and coloured the ladies from the Girlfriends set with markers, then stamped some of the funny wine expressions, cutting each of them out and backing with black cardstock. Paper Products Used The paper and stickers I used are from the Be Happy 12 x 12 paper pad from Paper House Productions.  Such beautiful patterns and these soft pink and…

Hello everyone!  Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog featuring some great products from Stabilo. Last month I did a Facebook Live on drawing layered circles with these three Stabilo products. CLICK HERE to see that live video. On the blog today I’m sharing a step by step of the technique, only this time we are making rectangles. I was inspired by the July Sketchy challenge too, the rectangle layout determined the arrangement on my card. The beauty of the Stabilo products is that you can coordinate your colors from the fibre-tipped pens to the Woody to the CarbOthello chalk pastel pencil. This card is basically small rectangle layers made with 3 different Stabilo products from the blue/green color family. Step ONE Prep card stock with gesso. Step TWO Draw shapes using the Stabilo Pen 68. These pens are water-soluble so they magically react with water. (Well, it’s…
