Campfire season is upon us! Truly, my favourite time of the year. Today on the blog I decided to THROWBACK to the Summer 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine where Kim Gowdy designed a gorgeous little Marshmallow Roast Party Invitation using one of my all-time favourite products – a campfire stamp by Impression Obsession. One of the things I absolutely adore about Impression Obsession is that their stamps STAY ALIVE for a long time. So if you love this stamp as much as I do ….it is still available for purchase! CLICK HERE!  LOVE IT! Check out this gorgeous little bundle of summer LOVE! Kim stamped the campfire stamp using Clearsnap ColorBox Archival ink. She then colored the image in using Chameleon Color Tone Pens. This card is so stinking cute! I just might have to have a Marshmallow Roast Party just so I can totally copy this invitation. Giggle…

Hello everyone, Laura Weed, from Stampendous here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today we are celebrating Laurel Burch stamp products. At Stampendous it has been an honour and a privilege to hold the license for Laurel Burch stamp products for the last several years. Laurel’s whimsical and fun creatures have brought so many smiles to the Stampendous staff and customers, we are thrilled to share them with you.

Hello and welcome to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Tuesday with the Team feature. I am Jayme Loge and I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! Starting with the Summer 2019 issue, the magazine is publishing a new ongoing article called “Planners Gonna Plan”, researched and written by yours truly. I’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of planners so I can share with readers and I am learning a lot of great organizational tips too! I was given the opportunity to play with some new American Crafts ‘Kelly Creates’ products. I love the marker sets! If you know me personally, you know what a funny thing that is for me to say. I have such a love/hate relationship with coloring; I do enjoy it and find it relaxing, but I don’t have the time to really invest in developing my craft and…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog creating Camouflage with Chameleon Color Tone pens and Art Impressions. I had a lot of fun with the Ole Buck set by Art Impressions this week. The stamp set is comprised of punny sentiments and fun camp accessories. Making a set of masculine cards was a fun creative interruption. I work with several hunters and I’m excited to have some “guy” cards in my stash. I created three different cards using a combo of papers from Carta Bella’s Fall Break collection, the Old Buck stamps, and some earthy Chameleon pens. I wanted my men to be wearing some type of camouflage and it was easy to create the look using 3 or 4 different earthy colours. To mimic Camo I scribbled randomly with Chameleon Color Tone pens in Olive, Fawn, Taupe, and Bisque. Here’s how it came together……

Hello everyone, Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with Dare 2B Artzy! While demoing and doing make’n takes in the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine booth in  Dallas at the Stamp & Scrap Expo I had the absolute pleasure to meet Cindy Sartain, owner of Dare 2B Artzy, stamps, dies & stencils. Their booth was directly across from ours &  oh, my goodness …. I fell in love at first sight with her products.  Of course, I had to bring some home to introduce her stamps to my ink 🙂 I have created 2 awesome quick & easy cards using two of her sets and one of her stencils. I kept the techniques so simple & fun that if you follow my articles in the fabulous, quarterly book,  “Creative Scrapbooker Magazine” (you know it is “way” past  “just” a magazine) you will probably know how I  achieved…

Hey crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a fun little card to share featuring some great new products from Ranger’s Simon Hurley create. collection. These stamps are just too freaking cute! I started my card by cutting a piece of Kraft cardstock to 4×5.25 and then stamping the Splinter background stamp onto it using the Woof ink pad. Then using a blending tool and the same ink, I darkened the edges a bit to create a bit of a shadow. I stamped the animals, tree, and trampoline images onto white cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. I added colour to the images using Chameleon Color Tone Pens, and then fussy cut them out. Die cut one of the Heartfelt Creations Hand-Stitched Accents frames from white cardstock. The stamped kraft cardstock gets adhered to the white cardstock card base. Then using multiple layers of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L…

Goodbye March. Hello April. The snow is starting to melt in Canada and soon you’ll see families thinking about hikes, bikes and well, fishing! The Best Catch Bundle from Stampin’ Up! caught my eye from day one of the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue release. I absolutely adore the little images and the sentiments geared toward Dad. My first project began with stamping multiple images on watercolor paper. I heat embossed the image with clear heat embossing powder. This gives a big enough ridge around the image to help segregate colours when water colouring. I used Stampin’ Up! refill ink with an aqua painter to colour the images. I love the effect of multiple stamped images and also sentiments. Being that the card has a fishing theme, the water colour wash backgrounds suits the stamped images perfectly. To create the wash, simply use some refill ink or a Stampin’ Up! Marker…
