featuring Sizzix Eclips2 electronic die cutting machine, Core’dinations cardstock,  Simple Stories patterned paper and chipboard stickers Ha!  It’s not often you run into Marilyn Monroe (since it has been reported she died in 1962), but on a vacation in California, we were happy to see her sitting on a chair in Universal Studios Hollywood.  My husband was thrilled to have a photo taken with her.  The April Sketch from the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge was perfect for scrapbooking these pictures that I took with my phone.  Rather than the circles shown in the sketch, I considered using stars but finally settled on diamonds, since don’t you know, Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend. I cut the diamonds on Core’dinations Black Magic cardstock with my Sizzix Eclips2 electronic die cutting machine.  The basic shapes that are supplied with this machine are so handy.  I just dragged and dropped the squishy diamond shape…

Hello Canadian Scrapbookers! Happy  DAY AFTER St. Patrick’s Day!!!! To honor the 25% of my genetic makeup that is Irish, I decided to create a St. Patrick’s day layout for the blog. But because I am the curious sort, I had to find out why this day dedicated to leprechaun tricks and green beer even exists. Turns out St. Patrick was a 5th century fellow who had some rather interesting adventures! British by birth, he was captured by pirates and sent to Ireland as a slave. Good fortune smiled on him, and he escaped 6 years later, after hearing voices tell him a ship was waiting to take him home. He became a cleric like his father and grandfather before him and returned to Ireland to minister to the people there. I guess they loved that because he was made a saint and he is celebrated with some solemnity there.…

Quick share today on the blog! I LOVE working with Sue Sykes’s sketches that she designs for our Sketchy Challenge! Every now and then I come across one that’s difficult to work with,  though sometimes it’s just MY state of mind at the time! That being said, this months sketch was awesome from the moment I laid eyes on it! I knew from the  time it was revealed which pictures I would work with. I pulled out my Simple Stories DIY collection!  It is colourful and fun; like the pictures I was using! No special techniques here, just some layering of paper and stickers! I did pull out some old chipboard alphas (that fit my space perfectly) and painted them with Viva Decor’s Inka Gold paints. I love the punch of colour and shine it adds to my page! If you like sketches as much as I do, you’ll LOVE this…

Hello Everyone!  It’s Kelly here today to share with you a Christmas card I designed using beautiful FabScraps papers.  Have you made any cards this year?  I don’t know how it’s already December, and I have been trying to finish off a few more cards. The hanging ornaments are FabScraps chipboard that I altered with a FabScraps stencil and Viva Décor Ferro, which is like a grainy molding paste with a metallic finish. I first painted the chipboard ornaments with white gesso. Then I used this FabScraps stencil and applied the Viva Décor Ferro with a palette knife. When you lift off the stencil, you see a really cool 3D metallic pattern. Just let dry for a few minutes. It dries very quickly! Using May Arts ribbon, I finished off the ornaments and card. This will be my last post until the new year….so even though it’s early, I wish…

Hello everyone Connie Nichol here! I was fortunate enough to travel to the Big Island of Hawaii last fall for my 25th wedding anniversary.  This was the first time I have ever been to Hawaii, and I was simply blown away.  It was absolutely stunning, about how I would picture paradise.  Needless to say, I took a lot of pictures while I was there.  Luckily for me, Kaisercraft released the Paradiso Collection shortly after I returned from the Big Island.  This  line is simply perfect for scrapping my vacation pictures.  One of things I really love about Kaisercraft collections is that they usually have a package of die cuts to go with the papers.  These die cuts are fantastic – there are so many in the package and they are just the perfect thing to embellish layouts, make cards and just generally have fun with. To scrapbook this picture of…
