Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Paper House Productions collection – Paradise Found Beach collection. Do you ever see a paper collection and instantly know that you have a picture that was made for that collection? That’s exactly what happened when I saw the Paper House Productions “Paradise Found” collection. I’ve had this photo of my daughter on a boat cruise in Californian for about 4 years – waiting for the perfect inspiration.  I also have to admit that I’m addicted to Paper House Productions large image patterned papers. I love the challenge of building a layout that ties into the image on the paper. My goal with this layout was to keep things soft and calm like my photo, to maintain that “magic hour” glow and to tie in my image with the background paper. Here’s how I went about it.…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I am having some SERIOUS fun with my Tombow Dual Brush pens! While I was in Barcelona last spring we toured many of Antoni Guadi’s buildings.  I completely fell in love with Guadi’s work, especially his tiles and stain glass. They inspired many pages in my art journal and this layout. When I got home I knew I had to try a scrapbook page with the technique.  I used watercolour paper as my base, a good mixed media paper would work well too. I taped the paper to my surface with washi tape to keep any wild paint spots from migrating too far off the page. To create the tiles I drew random shapes with Tombow Dual Brush pens. My vision was to create a rainbow wave of colour. I started drawing the shapes in one corner of the…

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…
