Hello there! Nathalie DeSousa with you today with a new project that celebrates Fall and it’s glorious colors.  It is not a secret that Autumn happens to be my most favorite season. It is the cozy feeling, the clean cool air, the beautiful nature, and of course the phenomenal colors.  So, I combine a few of my favorite Fall feels with some Vicki Boutin for American Crafts products in this new page call Autumn Fun. Fall Sunsets are some of the most beautiful, so I borrow the colors to create the background for this page.   Well when we think Fall, we think leaves, so I used one of Vicki’s new stamp and die sets (Shine) to create the embossed leaves in the background, and then used her Watercolor set to recreate the sunset on the background.  While the background dried, a few more leaves were stamped and color using the…

Hello friends! Tracy McLennon here, and I am loving that Autumn is right around the corner in my neck of the woods. Cooler days, changing leaves and of course pumpkin spice everything. To celebrate in a crafty way, I created this Take Life One Cup At A Time card, with a fall colour scheme. I started my creation by stamping this fabulous Art Impressions image onto white cardstock using black Archival Ink. Then I added colour using Chameleon Pens. I did so using some simple bold shading for more of a cartoon look. Then I simply fussy cut around the images leaving a narrow white border. I inked the edges of all of my patterned and cardstock layers using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. Using patterned papers from the Hello Fall collection from Carta Bella, I hand cut leaves that were about 1.5” long and 1” wide. Then I added them…

What screams Birthday more than that confetti look!  Nicole here and I am sharing this fun stamping technique with a variety of Stampers Anonymous Stamp Sets and Rangers new Alcohol Lift- Ink.  This is an easy stamping technique that will work for any stamped image. I used Stampers Anonymous Crazy Cats and Crazy Things stamps for this quick Birthday Card.  Select an assortment of Ranger Alcohol Inks and Yuppo.  Load the Alcohol Ink Applicator with Alcohol Inks and a couple drops of Blending Solution. Dab the Alcohol Ink randomly around the Yuppo paper.  Use a twisting motion while applying the alcohol ink to the Yuppo.  It takes no time to dry so you can pop it right onto the Stamp Platform. Make sure you position your stamp where you want it and load it on the Stamp Platform.  Use the new Alcohol Lift-Ink to load your stamp.  With the stamp loaded…

Hello! It’s Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.  I am sharing some cute gift tags I made for some very special people in my life. At the end of May I travel to Canmore Alberta with an incredible group of ladies to run in the Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run. Some of us are athletic and some of us are not (*cough* me* *cough*), but everyone is positive and supportive and even though I have to run up and down mountains, I enjoy the weekend away very much! A couple of years ago, I shared another gift bag and tag I made for these ladies, which you can see here. Ranger and Sizzix I again used the Dylusions sprays from Ranger, but this time I layered transferred images from stencils as a background. The butterflies were made with a die set from Sizzix, that I cut…

Happy Tuesday! Kim here with a fun Aloha layout I finished up not too long ago. Do you ever find a collection of papers and embellishments and immediately know what photo[s] you would use with it? I LOVE when that happens, because that’s a big part of the creative process taken care of…sometimes the hardest! This was just the case when I saw the Sun-Kissed collection from Creative Memories! We were fortunate to get to Hawaii for the very first time in February…this paper pack and matching embellishments screamed ALOHA to me! I instantly knew what I wanted to do with this layout, so it came together quite quick…which is so not my norm! I started out with a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, my favourite base to work on. It’s 110lb cardstock and is a wonderful sturdy base to layer on. I trimmed it down so that I could…

Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a little liquid gold inspired layout to share with you. My layout is inspired by my husband’s love for craft beer. I don’t like beer myself, but what I do enjoy is exploring these fabulous local businesses and the art and design that goes into their craft.As soon as I set eyes on these fabulous stamps from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection….I knew I had to have them for just this reason. Even just as the stamp alone, don’t they look fabulous?I created my layered background and then did a few simple mixed media steps in order to frame the area where my matted photo would be. A little blending and splattering, and let dry. Then I stamped the beer mug and beer bottle onto the layout itself in black ink. This ends up simply as a…

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, Connie Nichol here today with an easy birthday card made from an Art Impressions stamp and die set.    Art Impressions has a huge selection of different interactive stamp sets which need to be pulled, unfolded, twisted, spun or shaken.  Go check them out. The designs will be sure to bring a big smile to your face.    Who doesn’t love to get a card that flutters or wobbles? I played with the Birthday Fairy set to create a couple of cards – the set comes with the stamps, dies and an action ‘wobble’.  You can see from the side photo that the fairy’s skirt is dimensional and mobile. Here’s another slightly different version of the Birthday Fairy card in royal blue. Here’s the stamp set: I stamped the fairy and her skirt with Clearsnap Top Boss ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  I find that embossing an image…

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…
