When the candy corn comes out in the stores, Halloween is not far behind.  For my project today, I did a 12 x 12 inch layout of the first bag of candy corn of the season.  It’s completely gone already of course, but I still have the picture!  I used Echo Park’s Bewitched Collection Kit for the entire page except for some older Thickers I had in my drawer for the title.

Traveler’s Notebook Fall “To Do List”

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

With school back in session and the weather getting cooler, it’s time to start thinking about Fall festivities.  There are tons of things I like to do this time of year, and as a scrapbooker, documenting is half the fun!  New themed scrapbook supplies make it even better.  For today’s project, I thought it would be fun instead of a Post-It, to write my Fall “to do” list on the pages of a traveler’s notebook.

Sketch Inspiration

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

Every once in awhile our creative spark can disappear for whatever reason.  You want to create something, but you just stare at that stamp set or paper pad and just can’t figure out what to do with it.  This is where a sketch can come in handy.  Sketches are pretty popular–there are even blog challenges that offer prizes when you create something using their sketch.  I use sketches a lot and actually, when I create a card, I usually draw out a sketch to go with it so I can use it for another project later on.

Summer Mini Book

Summer is here and it’s time to make some memories!  What better way to keep track of all your pictures than in a mini book?  I was inspired by this gorgeous scrapbook kit from Carta Bella called Summer Splash and decided to create a quick and easy book that would be perfect for documenting summer adventures with pictures and journaling.  I kept it easy by using a spiral bound, blank keepsake book from Paper Accents along with the kit and other embellishments from the Summer Splash collection.  The colors are so bright and fun, I couldn’t wait to put this book together!

Q: I can’t get my tape runner to add any tape.  Is there something wrong with it?

A:  If it’s a new runner and you know it’s not empty, first check that you are holding it correctly so the end that has the tape is down on the paper.  It’s easy to grab them and have them upside down. Next, check to make sure there is tape on that area of the roller.  Sometimes used tape runners will have an open spot where there is no tape.

Q: I love the look of shading in many of the cards I see, but I’m not good at coloring stamped images. Is there a way to get that look without coloring?

A:  The new Spellbinders 3-D stamps will give you just the look you are wanting.  These stamps have the shaded areas already done for you so that all you have to do is ink it and stamp the image on your paper.

Q: I have trouble keeping things lined up especially letters.  Is there anything I can use to help me with this?

A:  A centering ruler is a great tool to have for getting pictures, letters and even stamped images centered on your project.  They help you to find the center of what you are placing and are see through so you can get it in the perfect spot on the project underneath, too.
