Beach Toes Mini Album with Laurie

Hey y’all!  Laurie here.  I did this cute Maya Road album,using the colorful Bo Bunny Boardwalk Paper. I applied some texture paste for sand, then mixed Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powders Antique Linen, Pumice Stone and I threw in a little glitter for some sparkle. While the texture paste is still wet I pushed in some shells I made from the Impression Obsession Mini Shell set.

On this page I used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Label Letters, along with some of the Impression Obsession shells.


Hope you come in to The Crafty Scrapper and take a look at this Maya Road album.


A Penny for Your Thoughts Mini Album with Erica

Hey there! It’s Erica, and today I have a little mini book of quotes that I made using some of the beautiful papers from the Bo Bunny “Penny Emporium” collection. I also used a few pieces from the Ken Oliver “Hometown” collection.

Let’s get started on a tour of my mini book, shall we?

First off, I made the book using a few pieces of recycled chipboard from an empty cereal box. I covered the chipboard with some cardstock, and then started to make my signatures (the pages).

The Bo Bunny paper has several ATC-sized images with great quotes that I used throughout the book. I also created some using my vintage typewriter.

This page blends one of the Ken Oliver papers with the Bo Bunny paper. Don’t they look great together?

Here is an example of one of the Bo Bunny ATC quotes. Since I wanted to layer it with another image, I simply cut out the quote, and then cut it apart, so I could add some dimension to the page.

And let’s not forget those gorgeous flowers! Once I had the papers layered inside the book, I added several types of gorgeous flowers and then embellished the front cover.

All of these products are available now at The Crafty Scrapper. Hurry in, before they’re all gone!

Mom Layout

Hello!  This is Ginger here with you today.  I did this lovely layout in honor of my Mom who passed away this July 4th.  What made this layout are these gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 – The Gilded Lily Collection.  To me it helped make this layout of Mom look so wonderful.  I could not have asked for better papers!

Here is the layout that I created!

I did so many things on this layout.  I inked, used modeling paste, stencil, fussy cut, inks, and much more.

Please see the following for a closer look.

Thank you taking a peek!  You may find this layout at The Crafty Scrapper!  You will also find on the back of this layout a list of items that I used.

Hugs – Ginger

Campout Mini album

Hi you lovely Crafty Peeps!! How is the summer going? Anyone been camping lately? I was fortunate enough to use Bella Blvd Campout paper line! It is too cute!

I made a mini album… you know how much I love to make those! HAHA! I used a portion of We R Memory Keepers mylar sheets! I love this stuff! It adds color and shine without being overwhelming. :)

Now, I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but I don’t have very many pictures of family…. so, please forgive me… I snatched these from the internet! I wanted pictures and this was all I could think of! Ideology doesn’t have any camping pictures in their current Found Relatives decks!

This was a fun album to make, I was able to use random Maya Road products that sometimes you don’t necessarily go together! Take a look at the clocks, that can signifiy your time together and making memories that last. I used the canvas star to further expand on the nighttime theme.

And the fish bones! I thought this was perfect because sometimes when you are walking along the bank, you sometimes see fish bones and scales–Greatness! Plus, I was finally able to use the chipboard for something non cat related!! Be creative with your embellishments! :)

The saying was a part of the zip strip along the top of one of the sheets and I knew I just had to use it somewhere. The saying is very sentimental and fun, especially when you go camping with family!

I hope you enjoyed the mini. Stop by the store and see the full album and find out how to use the WRMK Cinch binding tool! It is fabulous!


Life is Good Triple Notecards in A Box

Hello, Tina here, back with a great gift idea for someone special.

I made a trio of small cards that fit perfectly in an easy to make box made with the We R Memory Keepers Punch board!

I used papers from a 6 x 6 Basic Grey pad, fun puffy stickers, stamp and die from My Favorite Things and a magnet to hold my box closed.

Here is a close up of the box …

This box perfectly holds three to four smaller size cards.

I made my trio of cards 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2 to fit in some envelopes I had in my stash.

Here is a close-up of one of the cards.  I used the Stitched Basic Edges dies from My Favorite Things.  Look closely to see the double stitched edges.  Too cool!

I designed each of my cards using a different stitched edge die and added the same embellishments as on the front of my box to make the complete set.


This is such a fun gift idea that I have been asked to teach it.

The notecard trio with box is one of three projects that I am teaching next week.

I teach both on Wed. and Sat.  Call the store for details.

Be sure to check out the box I have shown you today, when you are at the store.

All supplies are available at the store!

Happy Stamping!


Traveler Layout with Webster’s Pages

Today I have a new layout for the Crafty Scrapper. I am so in love with these new Webster’s Pages papers. Love the colors, love the textures, love everything about them! We have two new lines in the store- Nest and Strawberry Fields.

I am still working on scrapping the few thousand photos I took last year on The Caribbean Crawl 2015- we were in St Kitts on this day and we were having a great time.

For this layout I used the Strawberry Fields line. I started my background by using a lot of old chipboard alphas and applying them randomly to the page. I applied a coat of gesso to the whole thing and let it dry, then painted with two tones of cream and gold iridescent paint.

I fussy cut the flowers from one of the patterned pages and highlighted them with my new Zig Clean Color Brush Markers- these things are pretty cool!  I also added some die cut stickers from the Nest line. The hearts are die cut from American Crafts corrugated cardstock and highlighted with my white Signo pen.



Who is not in love with the new Petaloo flowers that have come out in the last few months?? These are AWESOME. I really like how they have lots of petals on them, but they are FLAT enough to go into my scrapbook albums.

More fussy cutting here and again I used the new Zig Clean Color Markers to give the piece some extra highlights and sparkle. Because we can never have enough sparkle!

Be sure to stop by the Crafty Scrapper to pick these new papers up for yourself and see the full supply list I used for the layout.



Dina Wakley Inspiration

Hi y’all Laurie here today to share a project I created using Kaisercraft Scrap Yard products from The Crafty Scrapper.

 Dina Wakley is one of my all time favorite teachers, I always try to take her classes when she is at The Crafty Scrapper!

  I created a flip album out of Bazzill Cardstock.


The cover is the Scrap Yard Specialty Die Cut, cutting it to fit my cover. Also added Scrap Yard Copper to the back cutting it to fit the die cut. Using the other Scrap Yard papers I made photo matts.

Thanks for looking!

<3 Laurie

Live for Today

Hi there! It’s Erica, and I’m back with a little altered hanging that uses some of the fabulous Tim Holtz Correspondence papers.

I started with a piece of recycled chipboard (a cracker box) for my base. Then I started layering the papers, adding stamps, ink, and embellishments as I went.

The photo is of my husband, taken when he was about 4 years old. He thought he was something else riding with no hands, and training wheels!

For the hanger and bow, I used a piece of white seam binding that I dyed using distress inks. I like to buy rolls of  white seam binding since I can color it to match my projects.

I hope you’re doing something crafty this week, and keeping cool!

You Make Me Happy Layout

I created this whimsical layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I had this photo of my son Ryan and his daughter Paityn which I really love but I needed  a special type of papers to work with the photo.  These papers by Carte Bella worked wonderfully!


I used so any items on this layout.  I love the paper that was like a doilie!  I used distress ink, pearls, ribbon, wooden button and a laser tag.

Please visit The Crafty Scrapper to see this layout and look on the back and you will find the items that I used listed.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Two Beautiful Hearts

Hey y’all, Amy here with a fun mini project to share!

Today’s project features a color combo I am quickly falling in love with from watching way too much DIY television – black, gray, and yellow. There is something so soothing and elegant about this color palette. The project I am sharing today features my two youngest children. Now, I might be bias, but I think they have two of the most beautiful hearts of any children I have ever had the privilege to meet. It radiates from the inside out and I wanted to show that with the project.

Layers upon layers was what I was going for here! I see that in others’ projects and wish I was better at it. Sooooo…since I wasn’t doing a whole album to show off this beautiful paper I decided to try and feature several of the papers in the layers.

I used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and a stencil to give me some texture in this corner. Once dry, I blended over it with shades of yellow and gray distress stain. The heart is painted with red chalkboard paint and covered in glossy accents.

As always, no project is complete for me without some Maya Road goodies. Here I used the yellow zipper trim to create an accent on the saying I pulled from the Authentique paper as well as some Kaiserkraft flowers.

The background chalkboard is made by Jillibean Soup and is available down at The Crafty Scrapper.

Happy Scrappin’ Y’all! :)
