a fabulous job, we just had to share the other

Clusters of apple

the perfect autumn

especially liked her

he season of cooler

autumn leaves,
ghosts and goblins, and
thankful hearts is upon
us. Here at the maga-

be thankful for.
To our advertising

generous support helps us produce this magazine at
the turn of each season. To our retail stores who bring
you each issue fresh off the press. To our very talented
designers, who impart their creative ideas and clever

I love all of the clear stamps that are

great impression when I stamp with

skips and sometimes the ink squishes
out on the edges. What am I doing
wrong?

of design experts to

papercrafting tips
and what their current
“go-to” products are,
and we are happy to share their answers
with you! Go to scrapbookandcards.
com/fall-2011-designer-tips to see what
they had to say!
Thank you for your letter, Shelly.
Two simple tricks will often cure
both stamping problems that you
describe. Before using a new stamp
for the first time, rub an eraser across
the surface to condition it. Before
you stamp, place a magazine,
mouse pad or a thin piece of foam
under your paper. These two tips will
give you a perfect impression every
time!

The smaller punch templates (2” and under) are perfect for making
cards (and a great way to use up leftover scraps).
The embossing feature is an added bonus. All you have to do is
transfer the punch template and punched piece from the punching
envelope to the embossing envelope, place it back in the machine,
press the button, and voila—instant embossing!
You have the option to use batteries (great for taking to crops) or an
AC adapter to power the machine.
It comes with a nice selection of six basic shapes, great for many
different types of cards and paper projects.
Spellbinders offers a wide variety of punch templates to fit the Presto Punch,
ranging in size from 5/8” to 2”. Visit their web site (spellbinderspaperarts.

Embroidery is just one of many popular crafts that have crossed over into
scrapbooking. Summer’s hand-stitched title was the perfect technique to use on this
layout about her daughter’s penmanship. Here’s a tip Summer discovered as she was
creating her title: “After you have pierced all of your stitching holes, turn the piece
over and sand down all of the holes. This will help your stitches lay smooth and flat.”
1 Print your title on a plain piece of
paper using your favourite font.
Temporarily adhere the title to your
layout.
2 Using a paper piercer or push pin,
punch holes approximately 1/8”
apart around each letter.

resist rub-ons
There are many ways to create a resist pattern, from embossing powders to Vicki’s
decoupage tutorial on page 28, but have you ever tried a rub-on and a bit of acrylic
paint? This combination is a quick, hassle-free way to create a negative pattern
anywhere on your page! While making the tags for her layout, Kimber discovered that
a light touch with the paint achieves the best results, and the type of eraser you use
is essential to removing the rub-on after the paint dries.
1 Adhere a desired rub-on to your
project (in the example, the rub-on
has been added to a kraft tag).
2 Apply a light coat of acrylic paint
over the rub-on and allow it to dry
completely.
give it a try:
3 With an adhesive or rubber cement
eraser, gently rub over the rub-
on pattern in a circular motion to
remove it.
4 The rub-on acts as a resist, leaving a
negative pattern inside the painted
area.

layered cork paperclip
When it comes to layering and stacking die cuts, the possibilities are endless, but add
a paperclip and a layer of cork, and you’ve got a really great embellishment! Sheri put
her paper punches and dies through their paces to create the decorative clip on her
layout. A tip from Sheri when making your paperclip: “The dab of adhesive on the back
of the brad is essential so that the assembled die cuts do not slide down the paperclip.”
1 You will need a punched decal
circle, paperclip, large brad, and star
already cut from cork.
2 Layer the cork star accent on top of
the decal circle and punch or pierce
a small hole into the center of both.
give it a try:
3 Insert a brad into the hole and
position at top of paperclip. Open
prongs and apply a dab of adhesive
on back to hold firmly in place.
4 This technique works well with other
shapes such as hearts and flowers.
Give these fantastic techniques a try on your next creative
project—they are perfect for any season!

designer notebook
pump and paint BY VIC KI BOUTIN
There are so many different brands of spray inks and paints to choose from
and they come in a rainbow of colours! Each one has its own special
qualities, including sparkling, chalk and matte finishes. Some are opaque or
translucent, while others offer a hint of colour. Here are a few ways I like to
use these fun sprays.
Bottled spray inks and paints are all the rage and are one of the quickest
ways to add colour to many different types of surfaces. Vicki has some
fantastic tricks and tips for using this versatile product.
To stamp with spray ink, pump
several times onto a non-porous
surface (like a craft mat), then
press a stamp into the ink and
stamp the image onto your project.
This technique works best with
bold stamp images.

Decoupage glue stamped
onto chipboard works as
a great resist with many
spray inks.
Try painting with spray inks
to add a splash of colour to
stamped images. A light
touch will give a beautiful
watercolour effect.
Another way to apply spray ink
is with a brayer. Simply spray
several colours of ink onto a
spray mat, roll a brayer through
the inks, and then roll the
brayer onto your project.

Whatever level of difficulty appeals to you, our easy, detailed, expert
column has fantastic elements to try today!
I
can vividly remember my first day of kindergarten—dressed in a corduroy dress and knee
socks, holding a new lunchbox—and my dad taking photos of me to commemorate the
day. Every fall thereafter (for the next 12 years!) he took “First Day of School” photos of
me and my brother. Wanting to continue that tradition with my own children, I’ve snapped
similar photos every autumn. I love documenting the changes in my children each year,
and back to school layouts are some of my favourite pages to create!
by LISA DIC KINSON
For my easy layout, I created a simple base for my photos by layering 12-inch strips of
patterned paper across the middle of the kraft cardstock. I chose patterns that not only
reflected a school theme (numbers, graph paper, and grids), but also complemented the
coloursh in my photos (greens, yellows and corals). To keep things interesting, I added a
few textural layers to the patterned paper strips—cardstock border stickers, brads, and
a paper-punched edge. The block of journaling was printed directly on my cardstock
background and topped off with a chipboard and letter sticker title.

For my expert layout, I incorporated one
of my favourite techniques—misting
over a mask. I created a starburst mask
by cutting that shape from a piece of
cardstock with my die cut machine.
I then held it over the background
cardstock and misted with charcoal
ink to form the five large circles across
the page. To sharpen the edges of the
starbursts, I traced over them with a
black pen. I then filled each starburst
with a circle of patterned paper, topping
them off with die cuts, stickers, borders,
buttons and brads in similar colors. A few
strips of journaling completed this page.

For my detailed layout, I used a grid of
circles to serve as the framework for
my page design. I cut ten 2½” circles
from various patterned papers and
spaced them equally in the center of my
page. I treated each circle as a mini-
canvas, adorning each with a variety
of embellishments, including punches,
stickers, brads, buttons and stitching. The
school theme is repeated in several of
the circles with ABCs, the Periodic Table,
numbers, and graph paper patterns.
I also used some of the circles to add
small details about my layout—the title,
the date, and the intials of my children.

for today’s scrapper:
How Do I? When Would I? Why Should I? BY KATHY THOMPSON
Capture your best authentic, candid photo with these great tips from our
shutterbug friend, Kathy.
Let’s begin with the rule of thirds. This one is easy and you
probably hear it mentioned frequently—simply divide your photo
visually into thirds. Your subject or focal point should be posi-
tioned along one of the ‘thirds’ lines, either a horizontal or verti-
cal one, or better yet, any point where the two lines meet. Our
natural instinct is usually to center everything we shoot, so think
about this one as you compose or crop your shots.

D
o you ever look at a picture and think,
“Ok, it’s good technically, but
something’s missing?” If so, it could be
that the composition of your photo is somehow a
little off.
As with any artistic endeavour, there are
suggested guidelines for photography
composition. Which guidelines you use and
when you decide to follow them is a personal
choice. However, there is no question that good
composition can complete an already strong
photograph.
The next time you’re behind the lens, give a
quick thought to some of these basic
composition guidelines and see if you can
incorporate them into your photos.

Lines: Here are a few rules of thumb
for lines. The horizon line should be
straight, diagonal lines are considered
to be dynamic, horizontal lines restful
and leading lines intriguing.
Texture: Texture tends to add visual
interest to a photograph. It can be part
of the subject (clothing, hair, etc.) or
part of the background or foreground
(walls, grass, foliage).
Framing: Naturally occurring fram-
ing is everywhere—think doorways,
branches and people. Sometimes it’s
just a matter of chang-
ing the angle of your
shot. Take a moment to
look around.
Filling the frame with your sub-
ject can create a very compelling
photo, often telling the story in just
one shot.
For more great photo tips, inspiration and a few grins, visit
Kathy’s blog at www.kathythompsonlaffoley.typepad.com
the frame with your sub b
Alternatively, step back. As
beautiful as a photo can be when
it fills the entire shot, sometimes
stepping back and capturing the
vastness of a setting can tell the
story as well as a detail shot.
Background: Some-
times a photo calls for
a simple background.
You may not always
have the time or
luxury of setting
up a backdrop, but
shooting with a shallow depth of field
(small aperture number) will help blur the background and
focus on the subject.
Perspective: Move around! Where you shoot your subject
from can make the difference between an average photo and an
interesting photo. By simply changing where you shoot from,
you can often achieve unexpected results.
Body Parts: Try not to cut anyone off at the ankles or the
wrists! Crop more closely to the face and shoulders, or leave
body parts in the photo, if at all possible.
Pattern and Symmetry: Symmetry and order are pleasing
to the mind, and often in their simplicity can create a very ap-
pealing photo.
The composition of your photo should compliment the
subject, not detract from it. Think of it as a supporting
player—it’s there in the background, and although neces-
sary, shouldn’t be the star attraction. As you become more
familiar with what you are looking for, good composition
will become part of your usual technique and your photos
will show it.

hat would we do without our friends? We laugh
with them, cry with them, share our best kept
secrets with them. They are our mates, our buds,
our pals, our partners in crime. We call them dude, chicka,
homie, dawg, girlfriend. They are sisters, brothers, cousins,
and favourite aunts and uncles. Some are loyal companions
that walk on four legs and some may have been imaginary
playmates when we were young. There are those friends
who come into our lives for a season while others hang out
for a lifetime, but no matter how long they stay, they touch
our lives in ways worth remembering. We encourage you to
make space in your album for a page about your best friend
and we hope the following layouts and techniques will

Because the colours in her photos did not go well with
the patterned papers she chose for her page, Sarah
converted all of her photos on this double page layout to
black and white. Problem solved!
furry friends
Sarah’s daughter, Ema and their family dog,
Sorella are inseparable. On this layout dedicated
to their friendship, Sarah included Ema’s hand
print and Sorella’s paw print across the bottom of the
page. Here’s how:
• Sarah traced Ema’s hand onto a piece of smooth
cardboard and cut it out.
• She placed it on a sticky mat (one that is used
with an electric die cutting machine) to hold the
hand print in place, then covered it with her base
cardstock and sanded over it, revealing the hand
print.
• For the paw print, Sarah used a non-toxic, washable
ink pad and “stamped” Sorella’s paw print onto
cardboard and cut it out.
• She repeated the same steps as she did with the
hand print for this very cool and clever technique.

close cousins
Davinie created this darling altered
frame to celebrate her daughter,
Morgan’s friendship with her cousin,
Raegan, who she calls her “bestie.” After
creating the hills, sky and clouds on
the background of the frame, Davinie
positioned eye hole screws on the left
and right inside edges of the frame,
where she suspended a thin wire. From
that wire, she hung embellished banners
and photos of Morgan and Raegan from
tiny clothespins. She also propped an
adorable pink bird above their photos
for some added whimsy. “The wonderful
thing about a frame like this,” says
Davinie, “is that you can swap out the
photos whenever you’d like.”

With the glass removed from the
frame, Davinie had a bit of extra
depth to work with inside the
frame. She layered the green hills
on the bottom of the frame by
adhering the top most layer with
foam adhesive (pop dots).

Stephanie found a journaling font

used for her repeated subtitle,
adding a cohesive element to her
well-designed page.
sisters & brothers
There is probably no greater bond in friendship than that of
a sister and brother and, despite a five-year age difference,
it is true of Stephanie’s two children, Caitlyn and Ryan. To
emphasize the theme of her page, Stephanie incorporated various phrase
stamps into her layout. She stamped a repeated subtitle below her die cut
title at the top, which partially rests on two offset half circles. She also
created a thin, custom border to dress up the bottom of her journaling
block, which is interrupted to the right by another stamped sentiment
and a die cut butterfly. Both of these stamping techniques are subdued
yet add another design element to the layout without overwhelming the
photos.

life-long friends
There are just some things you
never outgrow, as Becky humorously
confesses on this page about herself and her best
friend, Stephanie. To create the two-tone faux
frame on her page, she trimmed a 10” square
of scrap paper and temporarily placed it in the
center of the yellow background paper. Becky
then sprayed white ink around all four sides and
removed the scrap paper after it dried. Double
rows of handstitching, placed slightly askew,
finishes off this quirky, fun page.
childhood friends
Childhood friendships with cousins
can often be as strong a bond as that
of a sister. Sheri’s daughter, Shailyn and her cousin,
Leah, share that kind of bond and it is captured so
sweetly on this beautiful, delicate page. Sheri’s die
cut, fall leaves swirl with depth and dimension thanks
to a shiny coat of glossy accents, and each is crowned
with a small dimensional flower sticker.
There you have it, five wonderful ways to pay tribute
to a good friend, along with five fabulous techniques

Loads of photos (even the bad ones!), a trio of
artists and three fantastic results! BY BEC KY FLEC K
I
n this age of digital photography, it is
not unusual for us to take hundreds of
photographs at an event. I recently
attended a little league baseball game
and amassed a collection of more than
200 action photos in one afternoon! Now
granted, not every single photo was worthy
of scrapbooking, hence the beauty of the
“delete” button. But before you get trigger
happy and trash the blurred, partial-head-
cut-off, out-of-focus photos in the batch,
consider using them on a multi-photo
page. They may be less-than-perfect, but
they still have a story to tell!

Although her photos were a bit over-exposed and taken on too
low of an ISO setting (not to mention the chandelier growing out
of her son’s head on the bottom photo!), Stephanie gave equal
weight to all three photos to compensate for the imperfections.
One read of her amusing journaling and you’ll understand why
recording the memories of that fun evening was much more
important than the quality of the photos.

from the heart
I
n the first two segments of this series, we covered methods to share honest, heartfelt
journaling and how to write an engaging story from an event or occasion. What about the
happenings of your everyday life? Your days are filled with ordinary routines—at home, on
the go, and all places in between. Imagine the fascination future generations will experience
as they read your scrapbooks years from now and see what your everyday life was like. Be sure
to give those experiences a home in your albums.
scrap the unconventional
The experiences that make up a day in
your life can run the gamut from ordinary
and predictable, to something unexpect-
ed, to a day that is over-the-top exciting. It
would be all but impossible to scrap every
memory, not to mention the extra room
you would need to add to your home just
to house the albums!
To help you decide what to scrapbook
about your everyday life, start by choosing
a random week and think about what
happened in those seven days that really
stood out for you. What memory made its
mark on your heart? What instantly
brought a smile to your face? What
happened that you never want to forget?
Sarah did just that and realized that she
spends an amazing amount of time as a
short-order cook, preparing snacks for her
young (and very hungry) son, Alden.
Armed with adorable photos and humor-
ous, heartfelt journaling, Sarah created this
well-designed layout, making sure she
included the adorable way her son asks
for “more snacks please.”
Everyday moments are fleeting, but recording them in your
albums will show your family one very important thing: you lived

journal your authentic life (part 3)
Sarah added condensation rings to her layout using watered
down paint and the bottom of a glass. What a great touch to this
terrific all-boy page!

make every day special
Part of commemorating your everyday
life is to capture the not-so-ordinary times
because, as we all know, life doesn't
always go as scripted. Maybe your son
broke his arm last summer when he
decided he could fly like Superman from
the backyard maple tree. Or perhaps
your daughter thought it would be really
cool to give the bathroom door an
extreme makeover and the handiest
paint happened to be your Red Rapture
nail polish.
Davinie took a very innovative route and
created a double page layout about her
daughter at age seven and a half. What
makes this page so great is that many of
the attributes describing Morgan will
change again by the time she turns eight,
and Davinie will have this well-document-
ed "half" page to remember her daughter
at seven and a half.
Remember, every photo has a story and I
encourage you to tell it.
SCT
Davinie hand-embroidered her unique title onto a heavy piece of
canvas, one that commemorates her daughter’s “half” age.

There’s no mistaking the back-to-school
theme of Heidi’s layout, as evidenced
by the row of apples across the bottom
and one adorable boy marching off to
school with his backpack in tow. A kraft
envelope, tucked in with the photos, holds
Heidi’s heartfelt journaling.

Laina’s son’s football season as a JV player is well-
documented on this sports-themed page, complete with
action shots, candid photos and a ticket stub from one
of his games. Laina’s blocking technique was the perfect
choice to make eight photos work together so nicely.

The word “special” can be defined as something that is just a little bit unique and that
is made with a specific purpose in mind. This issue’s project is no exception and will
undoubtedly be treasured for years to come.
something special
I
recently watched a mixed media arts video on Christy Tomlinson’s blog and fell in
love with the featured technique. In fact, I was so inspired by her video that I decided
to make an altered piece of my own! When I started designing the tree, I knew that
my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio bubblecaps would be perfect to build up the “leaves,”
adding loads of dimension to my project. I love working in mixed media and especially love
all the things I can create with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and Button Studio.
