Christine Meyer

I am Christine Meyer, mom to three rowdy boys and one sweet girl.  My hubby and I have been married for 14 years and have lived in Texas, Missouri, and Oklahoma before settling in to rural Illinois.  I teach music part time and get to stay home with my kids the rest of the week.  I started paper crafting shortly after the birth of my oldest son and have never looked back. I love this hobby because it gives me a little time to be creative and take a break from all my other responsibilities. I love to create cards, layouts, and altered projects in a whimsical style with clean lines and full of bright colors!  You can find more of my work on my blog or at my Scrapbook.com gallery!

We have a fabulous group of guest designers this month! But don't take our word for it... check out their inspiring work in our design team gallery.

Ginger Williams

Hi! I'm Ginger Williams from the Gulf Coast area of TX. I'm the mother of 3 rowdy, rough and tumble, amazing boys and one sweet, happy and loving baby girl. I'm lucky to be the wife of my best friend, an avid photographer, and a desperately addicted scrapbooker. I started scrapbooking back in 1996 while I was still is high school. Now I scrapbook pretty much daily!
  
My scrabooking style is linear and layered. I adore texture, small details, and bright colors. Small geometric or striped patterns are my favorite paper designs. I love straight lines and my circle cutters and circle punches, and die cut machines get a lot of work too! I also love bold titles, and any paper in my favorite color--orange! I love to make home decor with my scrapbook supplies and I also make cards, gift items, and design sketches.

As for my life outside scrapbooking, I love to read, quilt, surf, watch old musicals, and listen to oldies rock n' roll and country music. I volunteer at my church, at my boy's school, and with the Cub Scouts. I also do a little photography on the side--mostly weddings and families.

Jenni Calma

Hello! My name is Jenni Calma. I retired from Architecture to stay at home with my two children; a girl of 10 and a boy who is 8. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years although I have always been obsessed with paper and photos. My husband and I met in college and have been best friends for more than 22 years, married for almost 14! I mainly scrap 12x12 layouts but also enjoy making cards & mini albums. Scrapbooking is my creative outlet/personal therapy, but I also love to read, scour Pinterest and photograph my kids. I am super excited to be joining My Creative Scrapbook this month as a Guest Designer! You can see more about me on my Blog: paperCARDinal.blospot.com and on Instagram.

Step by Step Layout Tutorial by Angel Rodrigue

Angel Rodrigue is featuring our February Main Kit today with a step by step layout tutorial!

--------------------

Today I will show you the steps it took to make this layout below..

First pick a sheet of pattern paper of you choice and matt it on white Cardstock. I leave a little of the white showing around all sides.

Then I brushed some Gesso over my paper.

Made a Banner with another piece of pattern paper and stuck that down as shown below.

Then I used a Doily form my stash and stuck that down right under my picture as shown.

I loved the tags that we got in the kit so I wanted to tuck them in on top the picture and the banner. 

Then I added another tag below the picture and tied a bow using the ribbon in the kit.

Also added this cute banner to the top of the photo as well.

Then I added a cluster of flowers..


Added my title using the chipboard letters and there you have it. 

Hope you enjoyed this simple easy layout!

A Look Inside the February Mini Album by Kristin Greenwood

Kristin Greenwood is featuring our February Album Kit today with a look inside her beautiful love-filled mini album!

--------------------

I fell in love with the Album kit this month!  It is full of flowers and hearts, so I decided to make a mini album that will have photos of my husband and I!  My poor hubby just doesn't make it to many of my scrapbook projects, so this was a fun project to create!

I wanted to add something to my album to make it a little more personal, so I decided to add a few quotes that I had pinned on Pinterest (I knew the hours of searching and pinning would be beneficial some day)!  After I embellished each page I added a quote
The cool thing about the album that comes in the kit is that it already has this cool checked paper on it!  To dress it up a little I used a stencil with a pen to add just a little detail on it!  I titled my album LOVE and added the girl an boy potty people since it is about my hubby and I! 

This is the layout for the entire album, a photo mat on the left, with a cluster of embellishments and a quote on the right!

Layering embellishments is very easy with this kit, since there is so much product in it!!

Some of the pages I fussy cut out of the pattern paper, like the banner here!

I love the way the handwritten quotes look in this album, it really does give it that personal touch I was going for!

I can't wait to add my photos!

This album kit could just as easily be used for photos of your kids, grandkids or pets!!  So hurry and get yours before they are gone!!

How to Make Your Photos Work with Your Scrapbook Paper by Lynn Shaffer

Lynn Shaffer is featuring our February Main Kit today with a tip for making your photos work with your scrapbook paper!

--------------------

Hello crafty friends, 

My tutorial is a little different this month. Making your pictures work with your layouts. I have so many pictures printed ready to be scrapbooked. But sometimes the background of the picture does not go with the papers I have fallen in love with. With February's amazing kit I fell in love with all the love themed papers from the Crush Collection from Authentique. 



I also loved the fabulous Christmas pictures my photographer took, that I did not have the chance to scrap. 


So I took a chance. I fussy cut the chair and my son out from the picture. 
I then matted the picture against a black background. I choose the black because it would match my letters and the very awesome pattern paper.  


To make things flow I added stars and and inked my hearts in black in to bring the picture and layout together. 


I will admit it was a little scary for me cutting pictures (I made sure I had copies) but I love the effect. Here is a sneak at another project in which I dared cut my middle son from the background. 



Hope this tutorial helps you step out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. 

Don't forget to stop off at the My Creative Scrapbook website and check out all the amazing kits being offered! 

Have a great day!
