In Alberta, Canada right now we are in snowy wonderland. The frost on the trees , the crystal blue skies and the fluffy piles of white snow are so picturesque and calling us to play outside. BUT IT’S COLD! Giggle Giggle! I don’t wanna go outside! Flipping through the Winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine this morning – THIS layout, designed by Lori Domes – SPOKE to me! I can hear the waves and taste the salt!  AND I am 100% positive that it is warm!!!!! The paper tearing technique on Lori’s layout really gives the feeling of movement of the waves and the Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal drops add the PERFECT bits of sparkle. The only problem with Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops – I never know when to stop adding them! More is always better – right?! Lori’s layout was  featured in the Winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker…

Happy New Year! Kim here with a quick layout share! It felt so good to ‘clean up’ Christmas within my house and get back to some routine. By the end of December I have had quite enough of too much food, too much shopping, too much wine, so many events, so many to-dos…this introvert needs to cocoon a bit in January! I managed to find some time to play in my craft room last night! YAH! One thing that has become a ‘thing’ for me is to gather all my Christmas cards and scrapbook/collage bits and parts of them into a layout. It’s a great way to hold on to the sentiments, photos and fun images of the cards from friends and family. It is also a great way to upcycle them into something that will bring us smiles for years to come. It is not in my nature to…

Every year I sit down for a little tag making session! I like to gift my co-workers with a little something fun to take home for Christmas and feel I must include a handmade tag as they all know I am passionate about paper crafts. I want my tags to be simple enough to make in bulk, but with enough details to show I care! I started this tag making session with some shipping tags purchased at Staples. I added a small strip of plaid paper [Echo Park Lumberjack Christmas] and then stamped the gift and branches images [Stampers Anonymous Seasonal Scribbles] with Distress Oxide ink.  I coloured and outlined the images with my Nuvo alcohol markers. I choose these markers for two reasons…I LOVE them and they will not reactivate the Distress Oxide ink! A little glitter was added to the gift image with a Nuvo glitter marker. My…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here, just popping in with a very quick card share and a reminder that it’s OK to keep your projects simple! This easy card is simply layers of paper below my stamped and watercoloured image! I love how it turned out!I’ve been working at mixing my old stash with newer stash these days, it feels good pulling it out from far away corners of my craft room. This Stampin’ Up stamp is a favourite oldie for work birthdays! I paired it Wild Whisper cardstock and coloured my stamped image with Tonic Studios’ Nuvo Water-colour Pencils. Easy-peasy and ready for “the herd” to sign! Hope this inspires a quick and easy card making session! For amazing inspiration…subscribe to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine!

Kim here with a quick card share! This fun anniversary card came together pretty quick. My background is from a gel print I made last year. I often pull out my Ranger Gel Printing Plate and Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint and just play. These prints most often become backgrounds for cards, and it’s always great to have them on hand.On top of a black cardstock base, I layered up a piece of ephemera that I had on hand, then stamped some asemic writing [Paper Artsy stamp]  with some Distress Oxide  Ink. I found what I felt was the perfect couple from my Tim Holtz Paper Dolls collection and adhered it with Tonic Studios Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive [current FAV!!!!]. I quickly added soft colour to the bride’s flowers with my Tonic Studios Nuvo Alcohol Markers, they worked perfectly on the shiny surface of the paper dolls. I stained some…

Check out this fabulous Slimline card designed by Kerry Engel. Kerry used the Dylusions Fancy a Cuppa stamp set that is absolutely delightful. Probably one of my all time favourite  sets and I am not even a big tea drinker! But seriously, who doesn’t love a cute little tea cup? Am I right or am I right?!?!?!? The images were stamped onto Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. There is no messing around with this heavy weight cardstock…like the title says…its SUPER! LOLOLKerry stamped the images using Ranger Archival ink. She then coloured the stamped images using Tonic Studios Nuvo Alcohol Markers. For a perfect cut, Kerry cut the images out using her OLFA Craft Kinfe and cutting mat. The background patterned paper is from the Dina Wakley Media Collage Collective journal. All those fabulous enamel and glossy accents were created using a variety of Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops. Everything was adhered…

There are a few collections that truly STAND the test of time! One of those is the French Cottage collection by Heartfelt Creations. There are still elements of this collection available – I highly suggest you find some of it while it’s still available. Here is an elegant card that Kerry Engel designed featuring this line. I LOVE that bike and basket SOOO much! Kerry used the Heartfelt Creations Cottage Lifestyle die set to create it. She also used patterned paper from the French Cottage collection. So gorgeous. The base of the card was created using Tonic Studios Craft Perfect Card Blanks. They make life soooo much easier and of course come in a variety of sizes with coordinating envelopes. Kerry used a variety of adhesives by Scrapbook Adhesives by3L to keep everything in place! Including the E-Z Runner Grand and 3D Foam Squares. Kerry’s beautiful little card was featured…
