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 scrappy friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a little sparkly layout to share featuring Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girl Collection and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  Here are all of the details. I started my creation by taking a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock and cutting it to 11.5×11.5.

Hello scrappy friends! Tracy here, and today I have a pretty little layout to share featuring Simple Stories, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and an extra-large photo. Here are all of the details. Every once in a while I find a photo that I just love. A beautiful way to showcase photos like these is to print them as 8×12’s. An 8×12 is a full-frame image, the same size ratio as a 4×6. Printing it this size will not only fit perfectly to our 12×12 layouts, but it also won’t crop off any of your image. I used the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Collection including patterned paper, chipboard, stickers, and Bits & Pieces. I stuck everything down using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape, E-Z Runner Grand, Thin 3D Foam Squares, 3D Foam Squares and Adhesive Dodz. I used any old colour of cardstock at the background, a base for…

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here and I’m hoping these beautiful summer months are treating you as well as they are me, in my neck of the woods. Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean I don’t stop creating. But these days I’m usually crafting on rainy days or later at night. Today I am sharing with you a Heritage Layout featuring Stampers Anonymous. I have been on a kick lately of creating heritage layouts. I just love creating using a vintage colour palette and using heritage family photos that I am lucky enough to have access to. Here are the details. I created a stamped border using all of those stunning vintage Ornate Trims stamps from Stampers Anonymous using Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink and brown embossing powder. I love a layout with lots of layers and texture, and this layout is no exception. I double matted my 4×6 photo…

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.
