Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine Submission

Hello Everyone,I haven't had a chance to blog lately because I've been busy finishing up some party details for an order. Today I took the time to submit a page layout for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's Fall 2013 issue. I hope my page gets chosen for inclusion because it would be my first time being published. This was my New Year's Resolution & it would be great if I achieved this accomplishment.In the meantime, I will continue to make cards & scrapbook layouts and submit them when I can. It's a bit scary to put your work out there for others to judge but hopeful the comments will be positive!Keep Crafting!Delia

The Day After The Night Before

Hello Everyone, What a great day we had yesterday at the mega crop held at Scrapbook Quebec. We had so much fun! We completed 9 different & interesting challenges. There were drawings for prizes, yummy snacks & supper. Twelve and a half hours sounds like a really long time but the day went by so fast. I actually got some real work done. I created 6 pages & two cards. All this and we had some laughs & made new friends. Can't wait till the next one! Keep Crafting! Delia

Mega Crop

Hello Everyone, I haven't had the chance to do any crafting in the last couple days. Yesterday, I had to leave early in order to be on time to go see OPRAH who was in Montreal for the first time! Today, I had a few things to do including packing a bag of supplies for tomorrow's Mega Crop day. I can't wait! It's my first time attending a crop but it sounds like such fun! I hope it's as great as I expect it to be. Judging by the great store, Scrapbook Quebec, I'm sure it will be even better than I expect! I'll let you know. Keep Crafting! Delia

Scrap Crop

Hello Everyone, I haven't done any crafting yesterday or today but I did visit my favorite store this morning. This store is Scrapbook Quebec. I love the store itself for its great supplies including the top paper collections & embellishments available on the market. I also like the fact that they have 'crop evenings' & themed 'mega crop' days--all-day events. I registered for their mega crop happening this coming Saturday. This will be my first time attending & I'm so looking forward to it. My daughter & her friend are joining me and we expect it to be lots of fun. I'm not sure that I'll be getting much work done but that's o.k. I'm sure we're going to have a grea day! You can check the store's web page at for more info. Keep Crafting! Delia

Bo Bunny April Challenge

Hello Everyone, Today I created a scrapbook page based on the layout for Bo Bunny's April Challenge. For those who don't know, Bo Bunny is a fantastic producer of beautiful products for any kind of paper crafting. Their April Challenge is quite intricate but I think that my layout came out quite pretty. I used a photograph from my God-daughter Sabrina's birthday. The Bo Bunny page I chose has a black, pink & white colour palette so I added a few scraps of paper I had that would coordinate well. I also added a few embellishments including some butterflies which have now become her signature since we just used them on her confirmation invites. My page is quite simple but I think it's pretty. I hope that the designers at Bo Bunny think so too. Keep Crafting! Delia

Pink Paislee Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone, Today I created a card that I'm submitting for a colour challenge. The crafting product supplier Pink Paislee issued a challenge on their blog to create a paper craft using at least one of their products. This creation had to be based on their Spring colour palette. I create a card that I think represents this colour palette very well. I hope they like! Keep Crafting! Delia

Mother's Day Card

Hello Everyone, Today I made a Mother's Day card that I am submitting to Paper Crafts Magazine. They posed the question 'what do these color swatches inspire you to create?' and this is what I was inspired to do. The brown, green, pink & beige colours were exactly the ones on a topper that I wanted to use. This topper reminds me of my Mother-in-law and I was able to create a pretty card for her (shh..don't tell her!). I am posting this on the magazine's blog page. You can check it out Keep Crafting!

First Submission

Hello Eveyone, I'm so happy & proud to say that today I sent in my first ever submission to a magazine. This is for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's April Sketchy Challenge. I tried to follow the design sketch as much as possible but as is my habit I had to put my spin on it. I used a picture of my daughter that worked really well with my background paper. I added pretty cut-outs & trims. I'm very happy with how the page turned out & I hope it gets picked to be published. It would be my first design to do so! Here's hoping! Keep Crafting! Dela

Hello Everyone, Today I decided to make a scrapbook page using a picture of my nephew. His birthday in the Fall season means that the pictures taken of him as a small boy were often taken with items associated with this season. I had a pretty paper from Bo Bunny that was perfect for his picture. I added several elements representing the season creating a pretty page with an orange, red & beige colouring. Keep Crafting!

Summer Fun

Hello Everyone, I've taken a few days off from crafting but today I got back to work. I created a summery scrapbook page with a photo of a pretty young girl (a close family friend) & a dog (my sister-in-law's). The young girl is blowing bubbles outside during a beautiful, sunny summer day. This was very exciting for the dog who ran around chasing all the bubbles. To me, this is a perfect example of summer fun. This photo was the basis for my fun, summery page. I can't wait for the coming summer season when I can photograph and scrap more fun, sunny day activities. Keep Crafting! Delia
