Hey everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I had so much fun putting this project together for you this month. I was completely inspired by the new Stampin’ Up! Game On stamp set. My family are ‘gamers’ so I knew that this stamp set was going to be a huge hit in my world. While none of us play chest anymore, I couldn’t help but create with the chest pieces first. It was very evident to me that the background of this card should resemble a game board. The Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelits has a one-inch square that brings this idea to life. We do play Yahtzee and Monopoly, and well, many games with dice. It could work for any age group. I often struggle with using black in my cards are a dominant colour but the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder made…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! For today’s blog post, I’m sharing with you my Do Everything With Love Tag. To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, patterned paper from Simple Stories, a variety of products from Ranger Ink,  and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my tag at home. To start, you’ll need a tag that measures 3 1/8” x 6 ¼”. Select a piece of patterned paper out of the 6×8 Paper Pad – Simple Vintage Garden District from Simple Stories. Trace the tag around the piece of patterned paper. Cut the tag out. Punch a hole at the top of the patterned paper tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. Ink the edges…

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I have such a fun little card to share featuring a cute little stamp set from Picket Fence Studios and coordinating dies. I also used some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and Ranger inks. I started by creating a simple blended background for my card using white cardstock, a Ranger blending tool & mat, and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I was going for a moody sunset kind of backdrop. To add a slightly distressed border I stamped the Ranger Tim Holtz Early Espresso Distress Oxide ink onto my mat, misted it with water, and then drug the edges of the blended background through it. Let dry. This is also when I stamped the card sentiment in the bottom left-hand corner of the card using Ranger Archival ink. I stamped the super cute…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog! I’ve been looking at stamps differently lately. I like to see if there are ways that I can deconstruct the different design elements so that I can cut it apart and create layers.  The Beauty and Song stamp by Picket Fence Studios is a stamp that has a lot of opportunities to go a bit crazy with layers. Here’s how I put this one together.  Step 1. Stamp the image on cardstock and use the Brother ScanNCut to precisely cut the stamped image from the cardstock. TIP: This stamp has some open ends. The Brother ScanNCut scans the outside edge and requires a black edge.  The opened-ended leaves on this stamp needed to be closed in. The Brother ScanNCut did an amazing job of cutting out this complex stamp. I was suitably impressed with how it cut perfectly…

The very talented, Annette Allen,  designed this gorgeous card featuring Pink & Main!  It is so stinking cute! Here are her directions just for you!!!! Die cut the Holiday Scene on white card stock. You will not need all the pieces. I left out all the Christmas dies to create a camp scene instead. Die cut the designer paper on the background die and adhered to the base as the background scene. Now it is time to adhere your 3D card together so you can build your scene. Stamp the sentiment on white card-stock. Die cut your images using the coordinating die set. Stamp your sentiment on a separate piece of white card-stock and die cut using the sentiment strip dies. Die cut all sizes of the trees from the Holiday Scene die set multiple times. Now it is time to build your scene. First, add your colored image to…

It’s been 5 weeks since the birth of my third child, Claire. It’s about this stage when you are craving some of your old routines. For me, that’s crafting. It can be incredibly hard to find that inspiration and get back into your creative self especially with limited time. It’s always nice to be pushed by challenges or to be inspired by someone else’s work. Keeping it simple has always been a great way for me to get my juices flowing. For this month’s project, I have used the By the Dock Bundle by Stampin’ Up!. You can find this bundle in their Occasions Catalogue. Living on the East Coast of Canada means that I am always pulled towards anything nautical so this stamp set and coordinating framelits are a must-have item. The first step I did was to water colour several images from this stamp set. This time I…
