Premier Issue of Creative Scrapbooker

Hitting the news stands this week in Canada and the US (and always available by online sub) is the Premier Issue of Creative Scrapbooker, previously Canadian Scrapbooker for the past 10 Years! I'm so honoured and grateful that my work has been published in this magazine for the past 4 years. Here's a look at the Magazine Cover and the layouts that I were selected by CS for publication in this issue :)


This Issue is full of inspiration whether you are a Scrapbooker, CardMaker, or Mixed Media Creator!

2015 CS Sketchy Challenges

Last year about this time I made a Scrapbooking Goal to complete each CS Sketchy Challenge thru 2015... well like some fitness goals I started out strong but then everyday life took me off course. Last May we listed our house - which sold in 24 hours - and we were without a home for 6 weeks, hence I was without my cozy loft and the scrapbooking halted thru the packing and unpacking process - July to November!

I enjoyed spending most of the past weekend tucked away in my new studio catching up with a few of the challenges that I missed.
Here we go.... All of them for the year!


 Cyclones appears in the Canadian Scrapbooker

Throwing Rocks appears in the Canadian Scrapbooker

Another tough Sketch but I pushed through it and was surprised 
once I chose the photo how easily it came together!

A recent Shimelle blog post also inspired me to get this selfie Scrapbooked
Our kids are so awesome at taking selfies!
I'm getting better too! check out the October Sketch, 
I practiced a lot when I was on a girls Trip to LV for Jocelyn's Stagette!



2015 August Sketchy Challenge


2015 September Sketchy Callenge


Lucky Me! This one is in the Summer 2016 issue
 of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
My favourite part is the little piece of string that I attached to the photo!
I have had that little piece in my stash for years! 
This was the perfect place for it :)




I found this Sketch particularly challenging but it pushed me to use up some scraps
and I am really pleased with the finished layout - and Liam thought it was a great layout too!


Still waiting for me to scrapbook!
