Tuesday With The Team

Browsing

Jayme Loge here on this lovely Tuesday in April.  I’m going to confess right off the top that spring has never been my favourite season. It’s wet, and windy and muddy and grey. But this year, with our record breaking, never ending winter I am craving spring like never before.  Bring on the melt! Bring on the mud! Bring on the drab, dusty landscape! Bring on anything but snow for my eyes to see! As a scrapbooker, I can make these wishes come true. I escaped to my scrapbook area and dug out some favourite spring photos. Although it is too soon yet for gardening, it is one of the rituals that I love about the season. I come from a long line of gardeners, and remember many a spring day planting and hoeing and planning with my extended family. My grandparents had the most astounding gardens and I am…

Happy Tuesday everyone! Is the sun shining in your neck of the woods and possibly sending a spring vibe to your world? It’s Kim here with a Tuesday With the Team layout share! My layout is NOT very springy but since we are officially still in winter, here I go! I used our January Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for my layout. Rotating it to the left seemed to work best for me. I was thrilled to pull out my Carta Bella ‘Cabin Fever’ collection!  From the first time I set my eyes on this collection I LOVED IT. It definitely gives off a cozy, winter vibe and was perfect for the photos I wanted to share. This collection has the sweetest accent elements in chipboard, stickers and journal cards [12×12 sheet].I love how my completed layout came together so quickly with this sketch a paper collection. Don’t be…

Hello everyone Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am now the mother of a fourteen-year-old girl. She is feisty and brilliant and amazing and she is going to do wonderful things in this world. She is evolving before my eyes and it is exciting to see her discover her strengths, make mistakes and make choices about whom she is going to be. It’s lovely, and completely unbalancing. Some days she changes faster than I can keep up with and then when I think I can stretch no further, she relaxes and cocoons herself in the safety of home. I take a break from this dance by looking back at old photos and remembering all the little details of who she is and where she has come from. It’s funny the traits that don’t change. Her hands-on approach is one of them. She loved wearing ‘twirly’…

Hello everyone – Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Sunset pigment ink petal point collection from Clearsnap. Events …. I love events. I love watching everyone get together as friends to enjoy their hobbies, their passions. At a scrapbooking/papercrafting event the sharing of ideas is amazing. From the moment they unpack their tools and toys, sit down and begin creating the sharing begins. Everyone learns from each other and then there is the classes, the demos, the make’n takes that you can participate in to further the creative experience of the event at the Winnipeg, “Scrapchicks” gone wild event, I taught two classes and did a make’n take in the booth where I taught a fun background technique and they created a Christmas tag using that technique. As I teach, I create with them so I ended up with a “pile” of tags…

Hello Everyone – Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the ‘Be Happy” paper crafting collection from Paper House Productions. This Makes Me Happy There is nothing that makes this scrapbooker’s heart surge with joy and anticipation than a nice fresh stack of scrapbooking paper! The ‘Be Happy’ paper line from Paper House Productions is filled with beautiful soft colors, bold prints and touches of gold that make for a versatile foundation for all kinds of scrappable memories.  I love it when one color pallet has built in flexibility! Yoga Retreat A few years ago, when I had only a few yoga sessions under my belt, my novice self was invited to a yoga retreat in Canmore. I was in way over my head as everyone else had years of experience, but despite feeling overwhelmed all weekend, I had the most marvelous experience. I scrapbooked…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a  layout that features some adorably funny Art Impressions stamps.  These stamps always brings a huge smile to my face.  Although I’m sure they are most often used to make cards, why not use them to embellish a scrapbook layout?  I had the perfect photograph to go with a stamp of three friends drinking wine! Stamps Used Here’s the Art Impressions stamp sets I used.  I had two sets of funny wine stamps in my stash and I wanted to use them both.  I stamped and coloured the ladies from the Girlfriends set with markers, then stamped some of the funny wine expressions, cutting each of them out and backing with black cardstock. Paper Products Used The paper and stickers I used are from the Be Happy 12 x 12 paper pad from Paper House Productions.  Such beautiful patterns and these soft pink and…

Hello CSM scrapbookers! Kim here, thanks for dropping by the blog to see what I have been up to! Last September; my hubby and I went to Scotland for a wonderful, two-week holiday. I am still in the process of culling through pictures and scrapbooking some of our adventures. The layout I am sharing today uses the gorgeous “transatlantic TRAVEL” collection by Carta Bella. The paper is such beautiful quality and the collection lent itself well to a travel location so rich in history and well…across the Atlantic Ocean! My layout uses patterned paper, journal cards [cut from a 12×12 sheet], stickers and a quote border all from the same collection. I have added a journaling insert behind the photo mat; this also allows an extra photo to be placed on the back of my journaling. I added a touch of water colour to the part of the map [Scotland/England]…

Inspired by Sketches! My life is more hectic than I can keep up with much of the time and I treasure the opportunities I get to be creative and create wonderful capsules for my family’s memories. I love sketches as a great ‘get me started’ tool. Sometimes the result looks a lot like the sketch and sometimes not, but it really does not matter either way! Here are my takes on three  of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketches. March 2017 Supplies Used: BoBunny patterned paper, Southern Ridge Trading Co chipboard, Webster’s Pages letter stickers, Apple Pie memories acrylic arrows. I would like to point out that the arrow labeled ‘not a keeper’ is pointing to the too small fish and not my husband, as someone who saw it in person thought! April 2017Supplies Used: Simple Stories patterned paper, stickers, wood pieces. Frog’s Whiskers Ink stamps (images), Stamper’s Anonymous stamp (quote). May…
