Hello everyone!  Karen Ellis here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.  For my turn on Tuesday’s with the Team, I am happy to share with you a project close to my heart – cards of thanks and remembrance. Some of you may know that I am a reservist member of the Canadian Forces- CIC Branch.  I work with our youth Cadet Program.  This time of year is very special to me.  I am honoured to wear the uniform and support our country’s youth.

Hello Everyone – Cathy Caines here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. It’s the time of year when we say goodbye to summer. But in my teens, it also meant that I was saying goodbye to my friends and family as I set off to begin another school year away from home. It’s always hard to leave and for anyone going through their first year, it’s especially tough. If I am speaking to you – you got this.  Sure, you’ll be poor and stressed out but everyone around you will be in the same boat.  Tap into those around you and try hard to work on finding your true calling. The only way to do this is to think about what makes you happy. Good luck and always remember you can only do your best – nobody expects anything more.About a month ago a lady called me and said that…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with an autumn themed card featuring Impression Obsession stamps along with a Tombow adhesives and Clearsnap ink.  The DCWV burlap is a MUST HAVE! It is super easy to work with and adds a home spun feel to any project. The Project The Products This rake and leaf die set is the cutest from Impression Obsession.   I love that there are multiple leaf dies in this set.  It makes it very fast to cut out a bunch of leaves in assorted fall colours. I used a Tombow glue pen to adhere the leaves and the rake to my card.  It’s very precise and easy to use and works perfectly for tiny or intricate die cuts. The Impression Obsession stamp set is called ‘Watch the Leaves’.   This is also a great quote to use on fall themed scrapbook layouts.I backed the stamped sentiment with burlap…
