founder’s letter • SCT
A
s we head into winter and our last issue of 2008, I would
like to extend my warmest wishes to you, our readers,
and to all of our contributors, our SCT team, and of course,
our advertisers who have helped to make Scrapbook & Cards Today
possible this year. Without them, the magazine you hold in your
hands (or read on your screen) could not happen. And, because
of these many individuals, Scrapbook & Cards Today is now being
read in over 100 countries—thank you!
We have had another year of sharing our passion for scrapbooking and card making with you, and I now offer you a challenge. Share
your passion with a friend. There is no better gift this holiday season
than passing on some of your creative expertise; thus enabling a
friend to tell their story and preserve their memories. And, as we
face some challenges in the world today, it is a perfect time to
embrace this wonderful outlet for your creativity.
Of course, every time I offer a challenge, I offer a great incentive! Take a peek below at our latest giveaway. I can’t wait to read
your stories.

I fell in love with the pom pom
trim from Bazzill, but was unsure
how to use it on my layout. Then,
I came up with the idea to cut the
trim and use it to create “snowballs” to dot the “i’s” in my title.
I used the snowfl ake paper, the
epoxy shapes, and the snowfl ake
charms to frame my focal photo.

I loved the sparkly die-cut snowfl ake, but decided to cut it in half
to enable the addition of lots of elements on my page. I loved how
it played up the “snow” theme of the page (as did the snowfl ake
charms). I found that the circle epoxy shapes from My Little Yellow

I wanted to call attention to the black
in my photos, so I decided to paint
both the chipboard “1” and the pom
pom trim with black acrylic paint.
I also used black ink for stamping and
outlined my journaling strips with
black pen. To draw attention to the
title, I made the epoxy ornament (that
doubles as the number zero) appear to
“hang” by stringing it with wire.

I chose to cut the die-cut snowfl ake
in half and place it so that part of the
snowfl ake perfectly framed my daughter’s face. I wanted the photo to take
center stage so I clustered my title,
journaling, and the rest of the embellishments around it (this also left
plenty of restful white space).

her supply of unused letter and number stickers as well as
other embellishments that served to enhance her simple

or the fi rst four years of his life, my son had never experienced a New Year’s celebration.
by L I N DA
H A R R I SO N
I actually thought it would most likely be about four more years until he did. Boy was I was
wrong. Last New Year’s Eve, not only did my son stay up to watch the ball drop in Times
Square, but he continued his own celebration the next day. These fun and playful photos are from
his one-man-celebration, which I had a blast scrapping. I decided to use the festive occasion of the
photos to sneak in lots of what I normally don’t use on layouts about my boy: pink, purple, and bling.
Here’s what I came up with to showcase this festive little dude.

easy For a quick, yet celebratory layout, I started with a basic block pattern by aligning the two
photos in the center of the page. I let the remaining space (left by my photos) be my guide in deciding the width and length of my journaling block. I printed my journaling onto cardstock and used it to
fi ll in the “block,” thus creating a rectangle in the center of my layout. With the journaling and photos
in place, I added a strip of patterned paper to one side to bring more colour onto the page. On the
opposite side of the photos, I added the title using die-cut letters and a strip of cardstock in a corresponding colour. I fi nished the layout by adding some clear stars in a row, a “countdown” using glitter
number stickers, and rhinestones randomly placed throughout the layout.

detailed I changed things up a little
for my detailed layout. I kept the same
rectangular shape with the journaling
and photos, however I double-matted
them to add depth and colour. I moved
the title to the photo for a more interesting look. For the journaling, I used the
same journaling block, but I left out two
words and enough space so I was able
to fi ll in those words with glitter letter
stickers. I split up the rectangular shape
of the layout by adding the patterned
paper strip horizontally across the page.
Finally, I embellished with clear stars,
rhinestones, and a glitter element
that tied in the glitter letters from
the journaling.
expert I put the party on the page for
the fi nal version of this New Year’s layout.
I kept the same basic rectangle design of
photos and journaling as in the fi rst two,
only I moved the journaling directly onto
the focal photo and placed the title on
the cardstock. I increased the focus on the
title by using a combination of large glitter
letters and black vinyl letter stickers. The
journaling was stepped up by making it part
of the focal photo. Strips of the patterned
paper were used to frame everything, thus
surrounding all the elements in the variety of colours. I painted a chipboard swirl
and added it horizontally across the page
to add both movement and whimsy. The
layout was fi nished off with the same clear
stars, rhinestones, and the addition of a
large glitter swirl.

sewing and stitching can add to paper projects; can you help me get

A
Stitching is a fantastic way to add interest to a project. I sew by
machine or by hand on cards, tags, and even layouts. Here are some of
my favourite stitched projects—just in time for the holidays!
To create this fun, blanketstitched border, I first punched
holes all around the outside of
the circle with a paper piercer.
This controlled where I stitched,
and made it a lot easier for the
needle to go through.

I added “faux” stitching to this tag in
two great ways: first, I used rub-on
stitching on the red paper, and then,
I created some 3D cross-stitches by
applying PVA glue in thin X’s. Once completely dry, I laid the silver foil overtop
and gently rubbed with my finger.

as easily use a stamp or rub-on to create your flourish base.
I then made some random folds in the red strip of paper

her tree be this year?
Just think, you can use your 3D advent calendar to countdown the
days you have left to fi nish the rest of your gifts and projects! So,
we advise you to make a list, check it twice, and decide who is nice
enough to be on the receiving end of your beautiful creations. And,
don’t forget yourself in the mix—be sure to adorn your home with
some hand-crafted sparkle this holiday season.

KISS: keeping it so simple
We asked five talented designers to take a “back to basics”
approach and share their best SIMPLE layout with us. Read on for
10 great ways to simplify your pages…and still get fantastic results!

SCT • the 3T’s
A
s defi ned by the Encarta Dictionary, the word “simple” means
a task that is able to be done quickly, and an end result that
is neither elaborate nor complicated. In our busy lives, this
sounds pretty good! What if there was a way to cut down on time
spent scrapbooking, but not on productivity? What if there was a way
to resist the temptation to add that last page embellishment and still
be happy with the fi nished product? Well, guess what? There is!
Here is our designers’ list of 10 Great Ways
to create SIMPLE pages:
1
make your photograph(s) the focal point of

3
create a large, clear title
Our “Keeping it So Simple” article is designed to show you that simply
She uses repetition of shape (squares and hearts), as well as repetition of colour (red and pink) to create a simple harmony on her page.

Now, let’s check out what our other designers did...
For this double page layout, I applied the rule of odds
by working in threes (three individual photos of the
kids, three arrows, three buttons, etc.). I also stuck
with three main colours (using the green the most,
the blues the second most, and the grey-taupe the
least). Finally, I created lots of horizontal movement
across both pages by using the wide green photo block,
the blue strip, the arrows, and the repeated circles
along the top.

leave adequate room for white space—
approximately one third of your layout
should be “open” or restful space
beautiful pages can be created in simply less time and with simply
less “stuff.” Take Vivian’s layout on the previous page, for example.

repeat design elements
use minimal embellishments—embellishments should be purposeful, and help to tell
your story

create a defi ned space for your journaling

incorporate “clean” lines and straight angles

try to choose 3 main colours and use them
apply the rule of “odds”—the eye likes things
in 1’s, 3’s, or 5’s
create a visual triangle to help lead the eye
around the page
proportionately with one another—i.e. use 1
colour the most; another the 2nd most; and
the 3rd one the least
the 3T’s • SCT
When you have a great photo (or a group of photos) that visually have a lot
going for them (lots of colour, detail, or beautiful simplicity) you really don’t
need much more. This is where white space comes in. In this case, it
allows my photo to take centre stage, and, at the same time, it gives the
eye a visual rest. As well, a simple line of stitching creates a frame around
both the photo and the title.

PAPER, Scenic Route; CHIPBOARD LETTERS,

RUB-ONS, DCWV
In keeping with the clean and
simple style, the embellishments
I used are minimal, yet intentional.
The “friends” button serves two
purposes—it adds interest through
texture and colour; and the word
“friends” reinforces the story of
the relationship between the boys.
I also chose to leave lots of white
space so that the eye was pulled
in towards the focal points of the
layout (the photo, the title, and
the journaling).

SCT • the 3T’s
For my Snow Time layout, I kept things simple by making sure
that the focal point of the layout was the large photo of my son.
I also wanted a large, clear title that related to the feel of my
photo, so I chose to use silver and white chipboard (I thought
that dark brown or black letters would take away from it).
Finally, I created a visual triangle with the red embellishments
(the word sticker, the button, and the epoxy brads).

Well, there you have it: five beautiful layouts and ten
hands-on solutions to help you simplify your pages. So, the
next time you’re feeling pressed for time or, you think your
albums are just a little too “busy,” try any one of these tips
(or even all ten) and keep it so simple!

t happens to the best of us…we have the photos, we have the latest and

Here are just a few of the sketches submitted to us based on the sketch found
in our fall issue.
fall sketch (designed by Anam Stubbington)
What an adorable photo! We
loved that Adele chose to
turn a multi-photo sketch into
a single photo layout. Choosing to run the stripes of the
patterned paper horizontally,
instead of vertically, helps lead
the eye from left to right
and follows the horizontal line
of the scalloped borders.

This clean and simple sketch
caught our eye because of
the way that Stacy made
it her own. She turned a
multi-photo sketch into a
single-photo layout, replaced
the scalloped borders with
straight lines, and chose to
move her journaling block up
beside the photo instead of
underneath.
Check out the great ways that Anam
played up the “snow” theme of her page:
she incorporated lots of translucent accents; applied glossy accents to part of
her title for some sparkle and dimension;
and ran a border of white patterned paper underneath her photos to mimic the
look of a deep snow bank.

the photos, Tanya made her own and used a page
from a vintage book to make the roof. Other
small details (the stitched and torn border and
the crystal “smoke” billowing from the chimney)

Christi created this layout about
her favourite hand-blown Christmas
ornament. Yes, it is indeed, a pickle.
A German custom has the children
in her family seek out the ornament;
the lucky one who finds it receives
an extra present.
Emily had fun choosing patterned
paper that was decidedly more
“tropical,” rather than “Christmas,”
to create this layout about her
family’s favourite holiday tradition: the
receiving of the Christmas pineapple.

help lead the eye right to the
focal point of the layout—the photo
of her husband carrying their
Christmas tree home.
Linda kept the focus on her
photo and journaling by using
minimal embellishments; only a
few rhinestones were added
to the center of the felt
embellishments to add just
a touch of seasonal sparkle.

the magic of winter
by Greta Hammond,
Wakarusa, IN
something special
Our something special is a project or layout that inspires us to drop
everything and create…and this issue’s project is no exception.
G
reta created this stunning snowfl ake frame using chipboard snowfl akes from Maya Road and
a wide variety of mediums and techniques. She used cool blues, silvery hues, and small hits
of contemporary black to create an elegant and harmonious backdrop that speaks wonder-
fully to the season. This frame would make the perfect gift, but, on second thought, it may be just too
pretty to give away!

When it’s cold outside—bring the fun indoors! Imagine
creating your own winter wonderland with everything in it that
warms your heart. We chose bitty houses, lots of polka-dots, sweet
snowmen and, of course, lots of Sugar CoatingTM! Nothing captures
the beauty of freshly fallen snow like a layer of Sugar CoatingTM
glitter! This sweet little town was brought to life using our Cold SpellTM
collection, Jewels, Crushed VelvetTM brads, Sugar CoatedTM cardstock,
La-di-dotsTM velvet cardstock & several papers from the PotpourriTM
collections. With winter upon us, there’s no time to waste.
Cure winter blues with a spoon full of sugar!!!
