Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m back on the blog today to share with you a fun fantasy themed tag. With Fall in the air, it was fun to work with some bright and cheerful patterned paper which had me longing for some sunny weather to come back. The inspiration for my tag came from the “Always Be Yourself Unless You Can Be A Mermaid” card out of the Simple Stories Collection – Dream Big.  To create my tag, I used the Dream Big 12×12 Collection Kit from Simple Stories.  As well as the Chipboard Stickers, 4×6 Stickers and the Bits & Pieces from the Dream Big Collection from Simple Stories.  For the base of my tag, I used the Medium Etcetera Tag from Stampers Anonymous. You’ll need to choose a piece of patterned paper from the Dream Big Collection from Simple Stories to trace the chipboard tag around. Cut the…

Hello everyone, Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. The ‘Seas The Day’ Tri-fold Stamp by Art Impressions is meant to be used in an interactive card. I thought I’d challenge myself to see if I could use it another way.I ended up creating an adorable tag that I plan on using as an embellishment on a scrapbook page, but it could easily be hung on a gift or bottle of wine.My salty embellishment has a lot of depth and dimension and comes together very smoothly as the stamps and dies snuggle together nicely on a tag. To create the tag… Step 1. You’ll need 3 tags, Art C has some great vintage tags. On the first tag stamp the palm trees centering them towards the bottom. ColorBox ink by Clearsnap has yummy colors that look fabulous on the vintage tags. Stamping in brown coordinates nicely with…

Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel. Christy’s designs are timeless. So many of her creations from way back when continue to inspire us today. This week we are looking back to the Winter 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. This was our 10-year anniversary issue and it was packed with all things in TENS. Top ten layouts, top ten tools, top ten supplies and Chrisy’s feature article – Top Ten Background techniques. Christy created TEN tags with TEN different background techniques. Guess what? These techniques are STILL hot today! I guess she knew what she was talking about! Here is one of the pages from her article as it was published in the Winter 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise…

Hello everyone! Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today, I thought I would share the Make-n-Take, from an event I did with Katharina in Chantilly, Virginia. First I will tell you this was an exceptional event. If you are a paper crafter of any kind you will want to be at their next event.  So many booths, vendors, door prizes, a huge crop and more. Creative Scrapbooker Magazine was there and we met so very many amazing paper crafters, made new friends and shared ideas. Here is the 10-minute make-n-take that the participants did in our booth. We had so much fun creating these speedy little tags, sharing ideas, laughing and giggling together. Once I got home, I took the same ideas and created more tags and a scrapbook page. Yes, I added embellishments from MultiCraft because “why not”, lol. This was a quick idea that…

Kim Gowdy here today with a fun little, mixed media tag to share. I love that all these wonderful mixed media products have oozed into the scrapbooking and card making world. Do you? I believe that any hobby that we stick with for a long time needs to challenge us to keep us interested and engaged. Scrapbooking continues to do just that for me…from my photography to trying new products and techniques, this industry still holds my interest after 12 years! Let’s take a peek at my tag and process. Let’s create the base! Thanks for joining me. I love how my tag turned out. I’m not sure yet how I will use. It may become a scrapbook page element, I may tuck it into an art journal or I may use it on a bottle of wine to give to my hubby to celebrate a milestone anniversary. The photo…

HI Friends, and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog today.  Today it is Karan hosting the blog and i have a tag to share with you using products from 49 and Market – CLICK HERE  One of my most favorite techniques to do on tags is the “smooshing” technique and I did that and created my background here on the tag below. Tags are perfect to attach to gift bags; to a layout, they are just as easy to create as a card and you can have lots of fun creating them.   Here are some detail images of the tag: Here are some steps to get you started: 1. Using Canson watercolor paper, cut a piece measuring approximately 3.75 x 6. Banner cut the top.  I like to place blue tape on the edges of my tags so that I end up with a clean white edge when I’m done…
